Saga Dawa Begins
May 11 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saga Dawa begins May 12 and is the auspicious fourth month of the Tibetan lunar calendar.
Throughout his life Buddha Shakyamuni fulfilled many of his major activities during this month. Standing high among them are his birth in this world, his enlightenment, and his mahaparinirvana. It is during this month that, after three countless aeons accummuating merit and wisdom, he achieved the ultimate benefit of himself and others: buddhahood- complete and full enlightenment.
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche reminds us that this is a powerful and auspicious time for practice and meritorious activities. It is said that the karmic power of our activities multiply millions of times during this month.
