Saka Dawa: Lord Buddha’s Birth, Enllightenment and Parinirvana

May 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

On this of the four holy Days we celebrate the Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and passing into nirvana.

On a holy day traditionally, any acts of positive or negative karma are multiplied “ten million times.” 

At HBC we will be reciting the Shakyamuni Buddha Puja. 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):


All welcome.  Donations of food (unopened) and flowers welcome.
