Happy Saka Dawa 2010

This year Saka Dawa runs from May 14 – May 27.  This is a particularly auspicious time of the year to engage in spiritual practice for the benefit of all sentient beings because we celebrate Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and parinirvana.

Lama Zopa Rinpche’s suggestons are found here: http://www.fpmt.org/Teachers/zopa/advice/general/sakadawa.asp.

I am planning to take precepts as often as possible, to attend His Holiness’s teachings in NYC, and to visit Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Losang Jampa on May 27 for the Saka Dawa celebration at Do Ngak Khun Phen Ling in Connecticut.

Please share your ideas and experiences this Saka Dawa.

  1. Aloha,

    I celebrated Saka Dawa with three sets of Nyung Na’s at Vajrapani Institute, preceeded by wonderful commentary by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Back in Honolulu under the beautiful moonlight. Happy Saka Dawa!
