Saga Dawa Duchen – Buddha Shakyamuni Puja on Zoom

June 13 @ 6:30pm – 8:00pm on Zoom

The 15th day of this lunar month is a full moon and is called Saga Dawa Duchen. Saga Dawa Duchen, the “Great Occasion” of the month of Saga Dawa, commemorates the birth, enlightenment, and parinirvana of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni, the supreme and perfect Guru. The fifteenth day of the month is very special as the birth of Buddha Shakyamuni, which refers to the day the consciousness of the Buddha entered his mother’s womb rather than His physical birth. At the age of 35, the Buddha attained enlightenment at Bodhgaya. This day also marks the anniversary of His Parinirvana at Kushinagara at the age of 80. This is the single most important day of the year for all Vajrayana practitioners and Tibetan Buddhists. Therefore, this month represents a great opportunity to commemorate and honor the Buddha, and to accumulate merit and purify our body, speech, and mind. This month only occurs once a year, so please wholeheartedly practice the Dharma during this precious time! Tashi Delek

32 སེམས་མ་སྐྱིད་པ་ནི་རང་གཅེས་འཛིན་ཤུགས་ཆེ་དྲག་པའི་དབང་གིས་བྱུང་ཡོད། ད་ནས་བཟུང་སྟེ་རང་གཅེས་འཛིན་འདིའི་ཚབ་ཏུ་གཞན་གཅེས་འཛིན་བསམ་བློ་གཏང་ན་སེམས་སྐྱིད་པོ་ཡོང་།   Unhappiness arises out of a very strong sense of self importance. From now on, if we replace our self important attitude with sincere care for others, it will lead to happiness.

31 བསམ་བཟང་ཅན་མི་ཡི་ཕྱི་རྟག་ཞལ་རས་ལ་བཅོས་མ་མ་ཡིན་པའི་འཛུམ་མདངས་དང་། ནང་རྟག་ལ་སེམས་ལ་དགའ་སྤྲོས་ཁེངས་ཡོད། སྤྱོད་ལམ་དུ་སྦྱིན་གཏོང་རོགས་རམ་བྱེད་པ་སོགས་འབྱུང་།   The outer sign of a kindhearted person is a sincere radiant smile. The inner sign is a mind filled with joy. Their conduct is generous, helpful, and so on.

Then we will meet again in joy. That is my heart advice.”
