TAW will host “Nyung Nes“ at Sakya Monastery Led by Ven. Khenpo Jamphel Tenphel on Sat. June 16 and Sunday, June 17, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. This is open to general public.
“Saka Dawa” an auspicious day in Tibetan Buddhism, is the celebration of Buddha Shakyamuni’s birthday, enlightenment and Parinirwana (passing away). In Tibet, this is the most important holy day of the year, a day to remember Buddha.
According to Tibetan tradition, the day that marks the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni’s enlightenment and parinirvana is the full moon day of the fourth month of the lunar calendar.
During this month practitioners place special emphasis on Dharma practice like circumambulation of monasteries and stupas, prostrations, taking precepts, reciting mantras, offering mandalas, doing sadhanas and saving animals lives, etc. All the merits are virtuous actions done on this day are multiplied one hundred million times.
