Today we celebrate Saka Dawa

Dear Tso Pema,
Today we celebrate Saka Dawa, the most holy day of the year honoring the birth, enlightenment and parinirvana of Shakyamuni Buddha. We invite you once again to join the international FPMT community as we spend this especially auspicious day in service to our precious spiritual director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, as part of our annual Work a Day for Rinpoche event.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s vision and capacity for serving others is endless. If education is the heart of FPMT, our charitable projects and centers, projects, and services are our many arms, reaching far and wide to offer service and guidance wherever Rinpoche identifies a need.
To actualize our programs we need your support. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in 2011. Here’s how you can help:
Regardless of the date of your donation, all funds and activities will be dedicated today. All funds generated will be used to support the programs and projects under the direction of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
Thank you for joining the international FPMT community on this special holy day. Together we’re making a difference and helping actualize Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s vision for a wiser, more compassionate world.

The purpose of life is to benefit sentient beings, to free them from suffering and bring them to enlightenment. This is the real meaning of life, the purpose of surviving each hour, minute, and second with this human body. Whatever we are doing, our motivation is to benefit others and serve the teachings of the Buddha. This is the sole source of our own happiness and the happiness of others.
- Lama Zopa Rinpoche
