KAGYUR READING

Saka Dawa is considered the most sacred Tibetan Buddhist festival celebrating Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and parinirvana.  Saka Dawa is called the meritorious month. In Tibetan Dawa means “month” while Saka means the name of  the closet star to the earth. In this month any good deeds performed  are rewarded with one hundred million times merits. It falls in the fourth month in the Tibetan Lunar Calender.
To commemorate this holy month the cultural committee of the school organized Kagyur Reading on 12th and 13th June at Lother Hall. According to an internet site “Kangyur” is the translated words of the Buddha. It is the entire collection of texts regarded as “Buddhavacana” or “Buddha word,”  translated into Tibetan. The texts are considered to be “Buddha word” are records not only of the Buddha’s own discourses, but also of teachings and explanations given by others – often by his close disciples with his approval, or by other enlightened beings. Also included are systematic compilations of the Buddha’s pronouncements on particular topics, eg. the rules of monastic discipline in the Vinaya texts

The teachers and the students above class 7 assembled in the hall to read the holy scriptures. ( Kagyur )  The students of class 3 to 6 recited prayers at their respective classes and class 1 and 2 students chanted the mantra “Om Mani Padme Hun” at their homes led by their home mothers. The stage was decorated with religious symbols, decked with butter lamps and tsoks. Refreshments like tea, juice, hot water, bun, biscuit and samosa were served for all. Everyone got an opportunity to earn merits and felt blessed on this auspicious month.
