SAKA DAWA -21st MAY-HOLY FULL MOON DAY


Saka Dawa-full moon day (21st May 2016)  is one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar, commemorating Shakyamuni Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and passing into parinirvana. Any actions done during Saka Dawa, both auspicious and harmful, are multiplied in their power. Karmic results are multiplied by one hundred million, as cited in the Vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic. It is a very powerful time to practice and increase one’s commitment to both practice and study.

On this holy month of Saka Dawa, from generating the refuge mind and arousing the Bodhichitta as motivation, to the practice of prostration, circumambulation, liberating animals from being killed, and observing vows, all of which are complemented with dedication, people engage themselves in practice with special emphasis.

Benefit
In the sutra, it says:
To offer to the Buddha in His presence and
To offer to the image of the one who had passed away,
The merit obtained is the same
If it’s done with unstained mind

As is clear from the Buddha’s own words, to offer to the images or representations of the Buddha has the same merit as offering to the Buddha himself in person. On special occasions like Saka Dawa, the merits generated through prayers and practices are considered to multiply into millions more.


This practice should follow not only in this auspicious month but each and every day life of people for well being of all sentient beings.
