Saka Dawa represents the holiest and most sacred days in Tibetan Buddhism. The Saka Dawa observations take place in the fourth Tibetan month, which in 2020 begins on May 23rd and ends on June 21th. This full moon night (June 5th/2020), is associated with three major events in the life of Shakyamuni Buddha – his birth, his enlightenment and parinirvana.
To begin this auspicious period, Rinpoche has kindly agreed to teach about the life of Shakyamuni Buddha, the Four Noble Truths and the practice of Dharma. The Four Noble Truths comprise the essence of Buddha's teachings. Deceptively simple, they actually provide a profound explanation of human unhappiness, both gross and subtle, and how to attain increasingly positive states of mind, from stress relief in daily life to an unshakably calm happiness and a selflessly compassionate heart.
