'Thuk Choera', Inter-class debate congregation.

Ignorance is the root cause of suffering, and wisdom is the antidote to ignorance. Through learning, one eventually becomes established in wisdom. Just as a lamp illumines a house so that one can see colors and shapes, so learning and wisdom enable one to see the nature of phenomena.

Drepung Gomang Monastery holds this unique distinction of having a special curriculum called Thuk Choera, an inter class annual monastic debate congregation that has been started from 13th June till 23rd June 2017. It is hold every year at the monastery. The practice of debate is the most important way to learn Buddhist Philosophy in the monasteries, it is an effective means of expanding the mind, increasing mental sharpness, developing analytical capacity and gaining internal clarity. The duration of this special ‘Thuk’ debate at Drepung Gomang Monastery will last for more than a week.

SAKA DAWA -HOLY MONTH FROM 26TH MAY TO JUNE 24

 

SAKA DAWA (A MONTH HONORING THE BUDDHA’S LIFE)

Saka Dawa, is the holy month when we celebrate the birth, enlightenment and death (parinirvana) of the Buddha Shakyamuni.

The merit of any good deeds that you perform during this month are considered to be multiplied many times over — by as much as one hundred million times  — so it is an excellent time to dedicate ourselves to all kinds of spiritually positive actions.

The Saka Dawa observations take place in the fourth Tibetan month, which in 2017 begins on May 26th and ends on June 24. Most holy of all is the full moon day of Saka Dawa, the 15th day of the month (June 9th), which is the date most commonly associated with not only Buddha’s birth but also his enlightenment and parinirvana. 

You can make offerings to the monastery by visiting our website DONATE TO DREPUNG GOMANG MONASTERY and making offering, once you have done that, please send an email to us so that we can include you/your prayer request in our daily prayers at the Prayer Hall temple.
