Buddha’s Enlightenment Day | Special Offering to the Spiritual Guide

April 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm


April 15th marks the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni demonstrating the attainment of enlightenment in 589 B.C.E.


This is an extremely important day in the Buddhist calendar because our actions are 100,000 times more powerful than on other days.


This event is marked by special purification and fasting retreats in Kadampa Buddhist Centers worldwide.   Here at KMC Durban, we’ll be engaging in NYUNGNAY RETREAT over the weekend, 12 – 14 April.

On this day, we engage in a Special Offering to the Spiritual Guide Puja.  This is a special practice of relying upon our Spiritual Guide as a Buddha and making praises and requests to him, but it also contains beautiful essential instructions on all the stages of the path to enlightenment and training the mind, as well as both the generation and completion stages of Highest Yoga Tantra.


We also make specific prayers for our friends, family members, Sangha and others who are suffering or who have died. This practice includes a vegetarian tsog offering, which you can bring with you to puja or simply imagine.
