Holy Day: Day of Miracles Shakyamuni Buddha Puja
24/02/2024 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Day of Miracles is the culmination of the The Fifteen Days of Miracles— which began on the first day of the Tibetan New Year, Losar (Feb 10) and which commemorate the special time when Guru Shakyamuni Buddha showed miraculous powers in order to subdue six tirthikas (non-Buddhist teachers) who lacked faith in him, and to inspire more faith in his followers.
Traditionally, any acts of positive or negative karma are multiplied “ten million times.”
At HBC we will be reciting the Shakyamuni Buddha Puja on this day. If you can’t make it in person, you can follow along with this recording of Khandro Kunga Bhuma performing the Shakyamuni Buddha Puja on Vesak Day at Losang Drapa Centre in Malaysia, with its resident teacher, Geshe Jampa Tsondu, as chant master (starting at 6:14):
