Saga Dawa celebrated at IBA

IBA held an evening puja on Monday 17 June 2019 to celebrate Saga Dawa. Thousands of Buddhists also went to Boudha and Swayambu to do kora on this special day. Tibetan lunar months begin and end with a new moon. The full moon day that falls in the middle of the month is Saga Dawa Duchen; duchen means “great occasion.” 17 June was the full moon day.
