Saga Dawa Celebrating the Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana of the Buddha
Saga Dawa Düchen occurs on the full moon (the 15th day) of the fourth Tibetan lunar month. In 2019, the calendar date is June 17.
This auspicious day of the full moon marks three important occasions in the life of Śākyamuni Buddha:
- The birth of the Buddha
- Enlightenment of the Buddha
- Buddha’s parinirvāṇa
Because this month witnessed these great events, Buddhists throughout the world believe that the results of our actions are multiplied during this time. Thus, any positive or negative karma we create with body, speech, or mind is multiplied.
