Saka Dawa Festival
Today is first day of Saka-dawa
The most important festival for Tibetan Buddhism, the Saka Dawa Festival commemorates Shakyamuni's Buddhahood and the death of his mortal body. Saka Dawa means the "Disu month" in the Tibetan language. Disu is one of the 28 astrological constellations of the Tibetan calendar. Because Disu appears in the fourth month, it is called the Disu month.
According to the legend, it was on the 15th of the fourth month when Shakyamuni was born, achieved enlightenment and attained nirvana, so various activities are held to commemorate Shakyamuni in this month every year.
One important offering that is made is to poor people. Tibetans in Tibet, India, Nepal etc., give money to beggars during this time.
Some Tibetans also give money to save the lives of animals. For instance, giving a butcher money to save the life of a sheep. Then this sheep is taken to a herdsman who is paid regularly by the "sponsor" to take care of the animal. The karmic merit thought to accumulate from these actions, if the motivation is correct, can be enormous. Hence, Saka Dawa is also known as the Festival for Releasing Living Things.
