Saga Dawa Duchen & The 37 Practices Of A Bodhisattva

Buddha Shakyamuni SadhanaDrong Ngur Jangchubling and Drupon Thinley Ningpo Rinpoche are pleased to announce a number of upcoming Dharma activities to commemorate Saga Dawa!

Saga Dawa (May 23rd – June 5th) is the most sacred time of the year in the Buddhist tradition, and celebrates Buddha Shakyamuni’s birth, enlightenment, and parinirvana. The karmic actions performed during this month are multiplied, so it is a very auspicious time for practice and virtuous activity!

On Sunday, May 24th, Drong Ngur will begin our Saga Dawa celebration with a 6-week teaching series on Tokme Zongpo’s 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva including a full-day teaching on Sunday, June 7th. The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva reflect the entire Buddhist path, and regular study, contemplation, and meditation on them brings immense benefit. Drupon Rinpoche will give an in-depth explanation on each of these special practices.

Additionally, Drong Ngur will hold a special day of Buddha Shakyamuni Sadhana Practice on the day of Saga Dawa Duchen, which occurs on the full moon, Friday, June 5th. Saga Dawa Duchen marks the enlightenment and parinirvana of Buddha Shakyamuni where karmic actions are multiplied ten million times.

“All suffering without exception comes from seeking your own happiness. The perfect Buddhas are born from the altruistic mind. Therefore, truly exchange your own happiness for the suffering of others. This is the way of the bodhisattva.”
From the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, Translated by the Garchen Buddhist Institute Translation Group
