Saka Dawa 2011


This year Saka Dawa lasts the month of June.  This is a particularly auspicious time of the year to engage in spiritual practice for the benefit of all sentient beings. On Wednesday, June 15 everyone will celebrate Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and parinirvana.

Guhyasamaja Center plans on offering a  lovely Shakyamuni Buddha puja the evening of June 15 in Reston, VA, details will be announced soon here and on the website.

Lama Zopa Rinpche’s suggestions are found here:  http://www.fpmt.org/Teachers/zopa/advice/general/sakadawa.asp.  Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche has given up meat for the entire month of Saka Dawa.

How are you planning on celebrating Saka Dawa this year?
