Saka Dawa 2017

Post by Nicholas Weeks » Fri Jun 09, 2017 4:26 am

Today, June 9th, Tibetan Buddhists celebrate the birth, parinirvana & buddhahood of Bhagavan.

OM MUNI MUNI MAHAMUNIYE SVAHA

Any practice done today multiplies good karma millions of times.
It is not a matter of achieving Bodhi or attaining Buddhahood. Rather, you yourself become aware that your own mind has always been fully enlightened.

There are so many ways to share merit with all beings on this multiplier day, so here is one sutra on the ten stages of bodhisattvas from the Avatamsaka Sutra. Read it aloud, whisper it, ponder verses from it, copy it out by hand etc.
