A Celebration with Pema Khandro
June 3, 2023
10am pt / 1pm et
Saga Dawa is the most auspicious day of the Tibetan Buddhist Calendar and a day celebrated by Buddhists all around the world. It is the anniversary of the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and the day he passed away into parinirvana. The effects of actions on this day are said to be multiplied by ten million times because of the spiritual power of this full moon on the fourth month. Join us for prayers and aspirations on this auspicious occasion.
This will be a hybrid event. Those who are participating in the Chod Retreat at Dakini Mountain will attend this event in person. Those who are not able to make it in person for the retreat can still join us for Saga Dawa online! Register to get access to the Zoom links to join.
Join Pema Khandro, friends and members for this joyous celebration of the Buddha’s Anniversary.
