Buddhist Holidays 2011

Tet is just around the corner. Then comes Magha Puja, then Losar… In the past, I’ve covered Buddhist holidays as they come up, more often neglecting to write about them at all. (I do tend to go a bit overboard during Obon season.) This year I’d like to plan out these posts, put in some extra research and bring my community closer to all the readers who feel so far from it. Here are some holidays I plan to post on this year:

This list is by no means an exhaustive catalogue of Buddhist holidays. It’s more of a map (and reminder) for future holiday posts. Not much unlike my “Backlogged” post. You can find another partial list at About.com’s Buddhism page. If there are other Buddhist festivals you’d like for me to cover, just drop a note below in the comments (links would be useful too), and I will consider them.

Corrections are also most welcome.

  1. Hi there, I just wanted to share with you this link: http://nyingmatrust.org/NyingmaTrustWalks/trustWalk.html

    Buddha's Englightenment (Saga Dawa Duchen) on June 15th is coming up, and I'm trying to get the word out there for folks to send in prayer requests. All energy and intentions are magnified 10 million times during Tibetan Saga Dawa, and we want to help others by praying for their intentions and needs. Any plug would be helpful. 8^)
