Ka-Gyur Reading


Forth Month of the Tibetan Calendar is religiously believed to be significant and auspicious month in a year. There in this month four among the twelve auspicious and significant days coincide such as the birth anniversary, the day of enlightenment and the death anniversary of the Lord Buddha. The month particularly by Buddhists all over the globe believes sacred and popularly celebrates the month as Saka Dawa. Performance of religious rituals such as reciting mantras, circumambulating monasteries, going vegetarian and being more compassionate and many more are practiced throughout the month.

Here in our school the religious and cultural committee organizes two days Ka-gyur reading once in a year during Saka Dawa and this year they organized the program on 21st and 22nd May respectively. Both students and teachers had a meaningful time reading Ka-gyur for world peace and long life of His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama and immediately for the people of Nepal for their quick recovery from both mental and physical traumas after the recent Earthquake.
