Shakyamuni Puja for Buddha’s Birthday

Celebrate Saka Dawa (Buddha Birthday), purify aeons of negativities, and make mountains of merit, with offerings and verses sung in English.

The power of everything we do on this holy day is greatly magnified, so it is the perfect opportunity for spiritual activity, making offerings, and re-setting the course of your life. We will be hanging the large applique thangka, and everyone will have a chance to bath the buddha. We recite praises to the Buddha based on stories from the Jataka Tales, make copious offerings, personal dedications, and strew flowers to the ten directions!

– You are welcome to bring friends along, but please let us know so we can plan accordingly. Capacity limits apply, so if you need to cancel, let us know so we can offer your place to others.
– You are also welcome to bring offerings. Please make sure they are commercially packaged. They will be offered to the needy at a later date.
– We ask you to abide by our COVID-safe plan and observe physical distancing, wear a face-mask if you wish, and stay home if feeling even slightly unwell, with any cold or flu like symptoms, as well as allergies.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche emphasises how the Shakyamuni Puja is so important, as a practice that purifies the obstacles and accumulates the necessary conditions, the merits – such as the seven limb practice and mandala offering and the practice of requesting the merit field – that are done in order to receive blessings and for the mind to enter in the graduated path.

You can speak your dedication in-person or online, or else just ype them into the chat for Miffi to read out.  We dedicate for the sick and vulnerable, the removal of obstacles, success of spiritual endeavours, flourishing of Dharma, and for all the resources needed to best benefit ourselves and others.
