Saga Dawa Düchen, a Wonderful Opportunity to Practise Generosity

During the time of the Buddha monks and nuns were completely dependent on receiving alms from lay people. So too in our present times the monastic community at Lerab Ling, rely entirely on the generosity of others for their support.

On 25th of May we celebrate Saga Dawa Düchen, Buddha’s enlightenment and parinirvana. On this day the effects of positive (or negative) actions are multiplied 10 million times. This is a wonderful opportunity to practise generosity.

If you would like to support the Lerab Ling monastic community with a sublime act of generosity, please make a donation online.

As it is traditional for a monastic community, we will offer prayers of dedication to our sponsors and the names of all donors will be included in our practice.

Thank you for your generosity!
