Holy Day – Saka Dawa – Monday 17 June 2019

Saka Dawa is one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar, commemorating Shakyamuni Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and passing into parinirvana. Any actions done during Saka Dawa, both auspicious and harmful, are multiplied in their power. Karmic results are multiplied by one hundred million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche in the Vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic. It is a very powerful time to practice and increase one’s commitment to both practice and study.

Program at Hayagriva Buddhist Centre for Saka Dawa on Mon 17 June 2019:

  • 6.30am Precepts given by Geshe Sonam (eight vows taken for 24 hours with an attitude to benefit others)
  • 1pm Purification and filling of water bowls
  • 7.30pm Light Offering followed by a Shakyamuni Buddha Puja

Offering of food, flowers are welcome at the puja.
