AT KAMALASHILA TIBETAN BUDDHIST CENTRE 20 May – 18 June 2023
The name Saga Dawa is of a particular star for which only appears within the fourth month of the lunar calendar. The Saga Dawa month is an incredibly special month, for the Buddha performed Six Noble Activities: the first being that the Buddha was conceived; secondly the Buddha was born; thirdly the Buddha took ordination; fourth the Buddha completely defeated His own maras; fifth He attained full enlightenment; and lastly, He passed into Mahaparinirvana – all within this specific month. Therefore, this is a very special month in the Buddhist calendar.
At Kamalashila Tibetan Buddhist Centre 108 candles were lit daily for sponsors and designated loved ones who may be in need of prayers for countless reasons, those who may be ill and who have passed away. Please enjoy a selection of images taken throughout this most auspicious month. Photos by Khenpo la, Karma la, Venerable Tsultim, Ann and anyone not mentioned – thank you!!!
