Significance of Saga Dawa
Interview with Venerable Tenzin Deshek, Spiritual Director, Losel Matre Tibetan Buddhist Center, Birmingham, Alabama. Ven. Deshek said that the current Tibetan month, Saga Dawa, being the holiest month in the Tibetan Buddhist Calendar, presents the most opportune time to study and practice the Buddha Dharma; all because of the extensive merits accrued due to some most important events of the historical Buddha’s life that took place in this month. He adds that these days, everyone, especially the youth, have easy access to the internet as well as all resources to help study the Dharma.
