Saka Dawa 2020

Friday, June 5, (All day) 2020

This day marks Shakyamuni Buddha's birth, enlightenment and parinirvana (passing from this life).

Saka Dawa is an especially auspicious day for spiritual practice — the karmic effects of all actions, positive and negative, are multiplied exponentially!


It is also an especially powerful day to take refuge in the Three Jewels - Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. This year, since we cannot be together physically, at noon we're going to be doing a purification practics and Vajra Cutter Sutra recitation.
