Saka Dawa Duchen is one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar, commemorating Shakyamuni Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and passing into parinirvana. Lama Zopa Rinpoche 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.
