Saga Dawa Festival in Kailash 2015

Saga Dawa Festival in Kailash Saga Dawa festival is one of the main festival of Tibetan Buddhist. It is held every year on the full moon day( in the name of Lord Buddha Birthday) of the fourth lunar month of the Tibetan calendar. It is also the day when Sakyamuni Buddha got enlightenment. Each year thousands of people from all over Tibet gather at Darboche at the base camp of Mount. Kaialsh. On that day to attach their prayer flags they bring from home. Tibetan pray and erect the huge flagpole on the Kailash Kora. The whole ceremony is led by a Tibetan Lama from the nearby monastery. Hours before the actual rising of the flagpole from the ground, people circumambulate the flagpole and pray and throw ‘windhorses’ (little pieces of coloured paper with buddhist scriptures on them) into the air. They help to remove last years prayer flags and attach new ones. We also can participate on this festival. On this festival the local Tibetan play local music. There is great sense of peace and happiness. Come and join with us. We take you there of peace of mind and soul.
