Saga Dawa Düchen: Celebrating the Birth, Enlightenment, and Parinirvāṇa of the Buddha

Recurring event see all

May 26, 2021 All day

Saga Dawa Düchen occurs on the full moon (the 15th day) of the fourth Tibetan lunar month. This auspicious day of the full moon marks three important occasions in the life of Śākyamuni Buddha:

  1. The birth of the Buddha
  2. Enlightenment of the Buddha
  3. 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.
