A Necklace for the Fortunate: A Convenient Recitation for Performing the Preliminary Practices

From June 05, 10:00 am until 2:30 pm


Saka Dawa is a holy month when we celebrate the birth, enlightenment and death (parinirvana) of the Buddha Shakyamuni.  The Saka Dawa observations take place in the fourth Tibetan month, which in 2020 begins on May 23 and ends on June 21.

Most holy of all is the full moon day of Saka Dawa, the 15th day of the month, which is the date most commonly associated with not only Buddha’s birth but also his enlightenment and death (parinirvana).

In 2020, the 15th day of the month, also called Saka Dawa Duchen, will fall on June 5.  In celebration of this special day, DNKL will be reciting "A Necklace for the Fortunate:  A Convenient Recitation for Performing the Preliminary Practices According to the Quick Path (Appendix C from the book Liberation In Our Hands, Part One: The Preliminaries by Pabongka Rinnpoche tranlated by Sermey Khensur Lobsang Tharchin w/ Artemus B. Engle or see attached pdf).

Please Note:  The teaching will be in Tibetan.  Non-Tibetan speaking participants can follow along with English.
