This year, Kurma Jayanti is on Friday, 24th May 2013. Buddha jayanti is also observed on the Vaishaka purnima day.

Kurma means Tortoise. Lord Vishnu appeared in this form during satya yuga to help the gods and demons in churning of the milk ocean. Mountain Mandara was used as the churning stick and Vasuki (serpent king) as the churning thread. To keep the mountain afloat in the ocean, Lord Vishnu took the incarnation of Kurma. Kurma Jayanthi is celebrated with much gusto in Lord Vishnu temples around the world.
