Today is Buddha Poornima.

Among the Dasavatara, Sri Buddha is the ninth avatara.

Additionally, Sri Buddha is the twenty-fourth lila-avatara.

In Chapters 17-18 of the 3rd Section of Vishnu Purana, Buddha has been designated as �Mayamoha�. Once, while bathing in the waters of the Yamuna, Akrura was astonished to see Krishna-Balarama within the river. Coming out, he saw Them seated in a chariot as They had been before appearing in the water. Again he immersed himself in the water, and saw the yellow-clad four-handed Vasudeva Sri Krishna along with His associates, graciously seated on the lap of the thousand-hooded Sri Anantadeva while being worshiped by Brahma and other demigods. At that time, he prayed to the Lord in the following manner:

 

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10, Chapter 40: The Prayers of Akrura

SB 10.40.22

namo buddhaya suddhaya

daitya-danava-mohine 

mleccha-praya-ksatra-hantre

namas te kalki-rupine 

 

Obeisances to Your form as the faultless Lord Buddha, who will bewilder the Daityas and Danavas, and to Lord Kalki, the annihilator of the meat-eaters posing as kings.

sa sakyasimhah sarvarthasiddhah

 sauddhodanisca sah
gautamascarkabandhusca

 mayadevisutasca sah

All eighteen names of Buddha from �sarvajna� (omniscient) to �sakyamuni�, refer to Vishnu-avatara Buddha. Therefore, �Sugata� clearly refers only to Vishnu-avatara Buddha.

gautamascarkabandhusca mayadevisutasca sah

Currently the place is known as Buddha Gaya is referred as Kikata Pradesa:

  Srimad-Bhagavatam .

tatah kalau sampravritte

 sammohaya sura-dvisham
buddho namnanjana-sutah

kikateshu bhavishyati
(Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.3.24)

Then, in the beginning of Kaliyuga, the Lord will appear as Lord Buddha, the son of Añjanā, in the province of Gayā, just for the purpose of deluding those who are envious of the faithful theist. 

Hare Krishna .

 

Buddha.

Hare Krishna.
