Make 100,000x merits on Buddha’s birthday

Wesak is the most important day of the year for Buddhists everywhere. It’s so significant because this day commemorates three momentous events in Buddha’s life — his birth, enlightenment and parinirvana.

In the Tibetan tradition, Wesak is synonymous with the 4th lunar month of Saga Dawa. Tibetan Buddhists believe that merits are multiplied in general throughout the month, and on the 15th day known as Saga Dawa Düchen or Wesak, the merits of our actions are hugely increased by 100,000 times!

That’s why Saga Dawa is also known as the Month of Merits, and it is a time when Tibetan Buddhists make extra efforts to practice more generosity, virtue, compassion, better temperament, and conduct, in order to accumulate greater merit. So join us on Wesak for a full day of virtuous deeds and make 100,000x merits with the whole family.

Saving lives through animal liberation is a virtuous way to start Wesak Day.
