Meditation Retreat & Prayer commemorating Buddha Shakyamuni's Birthday, Enlightenment and Passing Away with Geshe Kalsang Rapgyal

Meditation Retreat and Prayer commemorating Buddha Shakyamuni’s Birthday, Enlightenment and Passing Away with Geshe Kalsang Rapgyal

 Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10, 2017

This important Tibetan Buddhist festival day, Saka Dawa (the 15th day of the fourth month), is one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar marking the occurrence of the three sacred deeds of Buddha Shakyamuni (the historical Buddha) on the same day: birth, enlightenment and passing away (parinirvana).

Practitioners understand that any actions during Saka Dawa – both auspicious and harmful – are multiplied in their strength. Therefore, this is a very powerful time to practice and increase one’s commitment to the path and to study.

Join us for all or part of this sacred commemoration in order to deepen your practice.
