Wesak Special Celebrations at Kamalashila and Sydney Centres

Wesak (Saga Dawa Duchen) is the holiest time of the year for Tibetan Buddhists, marking a full month.  It is within the fourth lunar month of the Tibetan Calendar, and falls on 21 May this year. This day is the most important because it marks the three Anniversaries of the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and passing  (Parinirvana).  This time is traditionally filled with celebration and prayers, so please come and join us at Kamalashila Tibetan Buddhist Centre at Tilba and the Sydney Centre in Croydon to celebrate this wonderful time of the year.
