Anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni’s Birth, Enlightenment & Parinirvana (the 15th of the 4th month)

On May 21st, 2016, it is the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni’s Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana.   (known in Tibetan as Saka Dawa Duchen)

We would like to suggest you to recite Buddha Shakyamuni’s mantra and ‘The Praising of Buddha’s Twelve Deeds‘.

It is said that the effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied 100 million times on this special day, so practice is strongly advised.
