Saga Dawa

The holy month of Saga Dawa begins on Monday, May 21st.  Saga Dawa is the month during which Buddha Shakyamuni's Birth, Enlightenment, and Mahaparinirvana all occurred.  It is a special month for meditation practice and meritorious activities as all effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied one hundred thousand times.  SPECIAL PRACTICE ON MAY 21 - We will have special practice this Monday for Saga Dawa.  This will include a tsok.  Please feel free to bring a vegetarian food item that has been made or purchased specifically for this tsok ceremony.
