Saka Dawa is the fourth month in the Tibetan lunar calendar and in 2023 it occurs from
May 20 to June 18.
This special time is celebrated by Buddhists the world over and rejoices the birth, death and enlightenment of the Buddha.
It is believed that the karma from all actions performed during this time are magnified many times, therefore it is an excellent time to abandon negative actions and adopt positive actions.
It is also an opportune time to reflect on what your practice means to you and how you can use it best in your everyday life.
This year, the full moon day is Sunday June 4, which is considered particularly fortuitous for gaining merit.
Please join us at Drol Kar over the course of this special month, particularly for some special activities planned for Sunday June 4.
More information will be posted on the Drol Kar website as well as in June’s newsletter and on our social media platforms, so keep an eye out for updates.
