Saga Dawa Festival 2017

Saga Dawa is one of the four major Buddhist holidays, which falls on the full moon (15th day) of the fourth Tibetan lunar month. It is considered to be a very important and sacred festival that celebrates the enlightenment and parinirvana of Lord Buddha. The whole month is dedicated to doing good karma and the people of the community believe in it quite religiously. The felicitations for the festival continue for the whole month and is one of the most important festivals. Saga Dawa holds a special place in the hearts of the monks too who involve in merit making during this period.

At the beginning of the month, Tibetans go to Mt. Kailash and take down the flagpole at Tarpoche and offer prayers there. Special musical performances are performed by the monks of the monastery that make it all the more special and unique. Celebrated in the beautiful city of Gangtok, the festival is a wonderful way of promoting good deeds and offering charity to the monasteries. It is also believed that the good things done during this period get doubled up and give fruits in the future. A wide range of activities and events are organised during this month that aim at making the festival successful and wonderful. The mesmerizing charm of the festival can be felt by visiting Gangtok and living with the monks. This year Saga Dawa will be celebrated on 9th June 2017 and can be visited by booking a flight/bus/train to Gangtok.

Excellent location. Pick up and drop from/to hotel is a problem as after 8am cab pick up is not allowed from Hotel due to traffic police rule. Food is good but just need to improve the service a bit.
