"Saga Dawa is an important Tibetan Buddhist festival, held each year on the full moon day of
the fourth lunar month of the Tibetan calendar, to celebrate Sakyamuni 's enlightenment." ,
that's what every guidebook will tell you. But actually having been there, to me at that moment
it was more like being part of a magic event, something that gets a total grip on all of your
senses. So what's going on , Each year, they replace the Tarboche flagpole, a huge pole that
stands on the Kailash kora, south of the mountain. People from all over Tibet gather here that
day to attach their prayer flags they brought from home, to pray, and to help erect the flagpole.
The flagpole should stand perfectly upright, or else things are not good for Tibet. The whole
ceremony is led by a Lama from the nearby monastery. It's his job to make it work 'right first
time'.
