Dear members and friends,
Many greetings to you all.
It is once in a year we celebrate Vesak or Saka Dawa in Tibetan but it is everyday that our Refuge in the Triple Gem blesses us in many ways. It is the triple Sacred Day Celebration of the birth, enlightenment and passing away of the Buddha.
Some of us have just returned from SIBA Retreat Centre where we attended our 10th annual Nyung-ne Fasting Retreat.
This year we are going to celebrate Saka Dawa as part of our 27th Annual Ngondro Retreat which is going to be held from Friday 9 to Monday 12 June 2017 at Virupa Retreat Centre.
As fitting of the auspicious Saka Dawa Day blessing, a special announcement will be made to you by the newly elected fifteen member Executive Committee and myself as Spiritual Director.
We would like all of your kind participation. I look forward to see you on this day.
Yours in the Dharma
Lama Choedak Rinpoche
When: 2 - 3pm, Sunday 11 June 2017
Where: Virupa Retreat centre, 179 Douglas Close, Carwoola, NSW
