Event Details

Make your life highly meaningful on this most holy Buddhist day! So easily and with small hardships one is able to collect great merit.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has asked people to especially take the eight Mahayana precepts, which is such an easy thing to do – just 24 hours and inconceivable merit with each precept. Then if you can, to take the bodhisattva vows, do the practice of rejoicefulness, bodhicitta meditation, prostrations, nyung-nes and other practices. Accumulate merit with the highest, most powerful objects – the guru and the Buddhas – whatever one can do.

Rinpoche explains: “It is extremely important to do this. If no practice is done on these days, it is a greater, more foolish loss, than having lost dollars equalling the atoms of dust on the earth. And for those with whom I have a connection, to make this worthwhile, I want to ask you to take the Mahayana precepts at least once a month, especially the lay people.”

Today is Saka Dawa, an auspicious merit multiplying day and one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar, commemorating Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment and parinirvana. Any actions done on this day, both auspicious and harmful, are magnified in their power. Karmic results are multiplied by one hundred million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche in the vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic. Rinpoche says, if one accumulates merit in this way, then it is so easy, and with small hardships one is able to collect great merit.

Miffi Maxmillion runs the spiritual program, and is an FPMT registered western teacher. She left behind a thriving haute couture and costume business in Melbourne, when her mother Inta Mckimm (who ran LTC) became sick with cancer in 1997. Packing her bags for two weeks, she is still here 19 years later! Miffi was brought up a Buddhist and had the great good fortune to play with Lama Yeshe as a child, and his hook of compassion sustained her through the many rebellious stages of growing up. She readily admits to watching far too much TV and is an avid New Yorker magazine reader.
