On these powerful days, karmic results are considered to be increased many millions of times. They provide good opportunities for us to accumulate merit, purify negativities and pray for wellness and success.

Gen Namgyel-la has advised some practices for the students and some practices that can be sponsored by the students, so that there is a range of advice for different minds. The students themselves need to decide what is appropriate and what they rejoice in.

Upcoming Powerful Days

Saka Dawa (Tibetan calendar: the 4th month) || Date: 9th May - 6th June 2024

Shakyamuni Buddha's birth, enlightenment and parinirvana are celebrated during Saka Dawa, which is the most important month in the Tibetan calendar. The 15th day of this lunar month, the full moon day, is called Saka Dawa Duchen which is the single most holy day of the year for Tibetan Buddhists. In 2024, Saka Dawa Duchen falls on 23rd May.


Known as the month of merits, during Saka Dawa month (9th May - 6th June 2024) all karmic results—good and bad— are considered to be multiplied by millions.



Gen Namgyel-la's special advice for this time:

  • Recite “Sanghata Sutra” at least once

  • Recite "Praise to Shakyamuni Buddha"

  • Recite "King of Prayers"

  • Light offerings are very beneficial
