VIRTUAL EVENT: Seventh Annual Sakadawa Interfaith Celebration



At Kurukulla Center we are delighted to host the Seventh Annual Sakadawa Interfaith Celebration. This event is a very special part of our yearly calendar and we are honored to have the participation of more than twenty distinguished guests from various faith traditions.

This year the event will be hosted online using Facebook Live. Visit our Facebook page on Friday, June 5, shortly before 7:00 PM, Eastern Standard Time, to watch the event live.

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, we call the month of the fourth full moon following Tibetan New Year “Sakadawa.” We believe that during Sakadawa the result of all our actions -- positive and negative -- are greatly increased. Therefore it is a time to be especially virtuous and diligent in our activities, to practice our faith well, and to benefit others. The full moon of Sakadawa is when the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and passing are observed.

This year we will especially dedicate and pray for those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic – those who have died, become ill, or have experienced hardship in other ways, both in the United States and around the world.

Each year the collection of distinguished guests, together with those participating by being in attedance, create an event that inspires hope, faith, love, peace, and tolerance. The celebration will have a lasting effect in your heart, providing strength and determination, to be the change in the world that we want to see.

Please join us for the Sakadawa Interfaith Celebration live broadcast via Facebook Live.
