Saga Dawa Retreat and Celebration
Join us for a special event commemorating Saga Dawa Duchen! Saga Dawa is the fourth lunar month and the holiest time of the Tibetan Buddhist Year. This precious time culminates in the observation of Buddha Shakyamuni’s enlightenment and parinirvana on the 15th Lunar Day, known as Saga Dawa Duchen.
This year, Saga Dawa Duchen occurs on Monday, June 17th 2019. On this auspicious day, the power of positive and negative intentions and actions increases one billion (1,000,000,000) times or more. With this in mind, the Salt Lake City Sangha would like to invite you to join our half-day retreat and celebration to commemorate Buddha Shakyamuni’s Enlightenment and Parinirvana.
This ceremony will be a precious time for Sangha to get together, engage in virtuous Dharma activities, and enjoy each other’s company. Everyone is welcome to attend!
