Saga Dawa

Nalandra celebrates Saga Dawa (Tibetan Vesak) to honour the life of the Buddha, commemorating his birth, enlightenment and passing into parinirvana.

We come together to practice an elaborate 16 Arhat puja and pray for the long life of all the holy gurus of all traditions, for the survival and spreading of Buddha’s teachings in the minds of all sentient beings, and for world peace.

In 2017 Saga Dawa will be celebrated on 9 June.
