KARMAPA ATTENDS AVALOKITESHVARA (CHENREZIG) PUJA, MARKING THE START OF SAKA DAWA


May 26, 2009 - Dharamsala

Marking the beginning of the sacred Buddhist month of Saka Dawa, at Tsuglag-Khang in Dharamsala, His Holiness Karmapa attended a ritual Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig) prayer session. Blessing pills were prepared during the ritual. The annual Saka Dawa festival pays homage to the three most important events in the life of Buddha Shakyamuni: his birth, enlightenment and parinirvana. Tibetan Buddhists believe that during Saka Dawa, the fourth month of the Tibetan Lunar calendar, the karmic results of virtuous and non-virtuous actions are magnified.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama presided over the prayer session at Tsuglag-Khang.
