Saga Dawa Düchen – Butter Lamps & Lama Live!

Dear Sangha,

Please join the Tara Mandala Global Sangha Community to honor one of the most sacred days celebrated by Vajrayana Buddhists all over the world. Saga Dawa is a month-long celebration that commemorates the birth, enlightenment, and Parinirvana of the Buddha Shakyamuni. The 15th day of this lunar month culminates in the full moon of Saga Dawa Düchen, a day where our merits are multiplied a hundred thousand times.
