Saga Dawa Celebration

Monday 17 June at 6.30pm - 16 Arhat Puja (Ceremony)

the buddha

Celebrate the Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana of the Buddha according to the Tibetan Calendar

Saga Dawa is the most important month in the Tibetan lunar calendar, celebrated in the 4th month which runs from June 4th to July 2nd 2019. The 15th day of this lunar month, the full moon day, is called Saga Dawa Düchen. Düchen means "great occasion" and this day is the single most holy day of the year for Tibetan Buddhists. In 2019, Saga Dawa Düchen falls on June 17th. Saga Dawa Düchen commemorates the birth, enlightenment, and parinirvana of Buddha Shakyamuni. In other Buddhist traditions this occasion is known as Vesak or is sometimes called Buddha Day.

Saga Dawa is known as the month of merits. Tibetan Buddhists make extra efforts to practice more generosity, virtue, and compassion in order to accumulate greater merit. Tibetans believe that during this month, the merits of ones actions are multiplied. On the 15th day of the month the merits of one's actions are hugely increased.

We will hold a 16 Arhat Puja at 6.30pm on Monday 17 June, with a short Dharma talk, meditation and circumambulation. Please bring an offering to the shrine of flowers, incense or candle, and some vegetarian food to share afterwards.

Bring an offering of tealight candle or flower to put on the alter and a plate of vegetarian food to share afterwards.  No Bookings required.

Weekend Teachings "Triple Vision"Saturday 9.30am to 4.30pm and Sunday, 9.30am to 4.30pm - bookings essential.

This is the most profound and fundamental teaching of the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism as it is the Path Including Its Result. This unique teaching of Virupa, one of India's extraordinary Mahasiddhas, covers the entire Buddhist path from the time of entering the spiritual discipline up to the attainment of full and perfect enlightenment. Though it comprehensively explains the tenets of the Buddha, its main function is to serve as a manual for contemplating and meditating upon the various stages leading to the final result of liberation.

The Three Visions teaching examines the state of those experiencing suffering, those engaged in methods leading towards freedom from unhappiness, and those fully enlightened ones who have attained omniscient awakening. In a very direct and simple manner, the teachings lead one, step by step over the vast path culminating in ultimate peace. The Three Vision teaching is important to more than just the Sakya tradition, as the teachings within are relevant to Buddhists of all traditions and lineages.

Cost for the weekend retreat is: $160 or $140 member/concession, including the Teachings on Friday evening, the cost also includes lunch on both days and the offering to the teacher.  Bookings essential, book on Trybooking:  www.trybooking.com/BDDQB

Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe has been a monk for over 35 years and has been teaching in Australia and overseas for over 20 years, he studied and taught at Sakya College and has a wide knowledge of Buddhist philosophy and practice.  For more information about Khenpo and his centre and retreat centre in NSW you can visit their website on:  www.drogmi.org
