Sangye and Nyangde Duchen

Feature Contents

    Sunday, June 4, 2023

    This full moon day of the auspicious fourth month of the Himalayan lunar calendar is also known as Sangye and Nyangde Duchen. This day commemorates both the Enlightenment and Parinirvana of Shakyamuni Buddha.

    This day is the single most important holy day of the year for Vajrayana Buddhists. It is said that merit is multiplied a hundred thousand times, thus it is an important day to again pay attention to every thought word and deed!
