º Annual Activities º
Throughout the year, the monastery and nunnery perform certain activities according to the Tibetan lunar calendar. Many of these are related to removing obstacles from the previous year and gathering positive conditions for the new year. (See the activities starting from the Wrathful Padmasaṃbhava Pūjā and concluding with the Ocean of Amṛta Drubchen at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling.)
Also of note are the four days commemorating significant events in the life of the Buddha: Chötrul Düchen, Saga Dawa Düchen, Chökhor Düchen and Lhabab Düchen. The effects of positive and negative actions are thought to be multiplied 10 million times on these days and are therefore very auspicious days to do spiritual practice, perform good deeds, sponsor prayers and make offerings.
The fourth month in the Tibetan lunar calendar is called Saga Dawa and is considered to be the most auspicious month of the year. It is also called the ‘Month of Merits’ and practitioners take extra care to perform meritorious deeds and avoid harmful actions during this time. (See the activities starting from Fasting Retreat at Nagi Nunnery and concluding with the Anniversary of Mipham Rinpoche.)
If you are unable to make an offering but would like to be included in any of the prayers or activities, please send your name(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
