35 Buddhas Practice
with Elaine Jackson (Vajrapani Institute)
Wednesday, May 26, 2021
7:00am – 8:00am PST
Please join The FPMT Harmonious Friends, for a Saka Dawa celebration to commemorate Guru Shakyamuni Buddhis’s birth, enlightenment and parinirvana.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche has explained that merit is multiplied 300,000,000 times on Saka Dawa. Because Saka Dawa combines these three special days, the possibility to create merit is unbelievable. To learn more about the amazing results of doing practice on this day, please watch this video with Lama Zopa Rinpoche from Kopan.
