Chinese 15th M-T-K 15th, Dragon, Zin, Red 9. Full Moon. Today is SAGA DAWA DUCHEN, where we celebrate two events: Shakyamuni Buddha's Enlightenment, and the anniversary of his Parinirvana (according to majority opinion, we are actually celebrating three events, inclusive of Buddha's birth, which was observed May 30th this year). On this day, the effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied ten million times. I also want to caution you not to make naga offerings today, under any circumstances, nor should you hang any prayer flags: this is a baden day, apart from its otherwise auspicious character.
