The holy month of Saka Dawa will begin on Thursday, May 29. The merit of any good deeds that you perform during this month are considered to be multiplied many times over — by as much as one hundred million times — so it is an excellent time to dedicate ourselves to all kinds of spiritually positive actions.
We would like to share something of how Tibetans observe Saka Dawa, the most sacred of Buddhist holidays, when we celebrate the birth, enlightenment and death (parinirvana) of the Buddha Shakyamuni1.

“Developing inner values is much like physical exercise. The more we train our abilities, the stronger they become. The difference is that, unlike the body, when it comes to training the mind, there is no limit to how far we can go.” - Dalai Lama His Holiness rides an exercise bike in the late 1980s. #TBT Photo courtesy of Sunny Sonam

Experience the Joys of Tibetan Culture
Introduction

The YoWangdu Tibetan Culture business and website focuses on Tibetan food, travel and spirituality, and is dedicated to the preservation and development of Tibetan culture and education.

YoWangdu is owned and operated by Lobsang Wangdu, a webmaster, experienced Tibetan cook, and digital photographer with many years of volunteer service for the Tibetan Association of Northern California.

Having long dreamed of using his photography and technical skills to run his own business, Lobsang created YoWangdu in 2009, with the mission of enabling visitors to experience the joys of Tibetan culture.

Lobsang thrives on making his clients happy with exceptional customer service, and is inspired by the motivation to contribute to much-needed education projects for Tibetans.

YoWangdu’s major product, the Tibetan Home Cooking eBook and video series, is based on Lobsang Wangdu’s original recipes, with great help from some friends who are wonderful Tibetan chefs. Lobsang learned to cook at a young age by watching his aunt and uncle in Tibet, and as he grew older, he assisted experienced Tibetan chefs, asking questions while he helped cook.

Lobsang has been making variations on the recipes in Tibetan Home Cooking for well over twenty years, and has acquired a wealth of experience along with his innate passion for making the people he cooks for happy.

Yolanda O’Bannon serves as a volunteer producer, writer and editor for the YoWangdu website and Tibetan Home Cooking.

Professionally, Yolanda is the executive and editorial assistant to Bruce Alberts, the Editor-in-Chief of Science magazine and former United States Science Envoy, and a producer for the iBioSeminars website.

She has worked for years as a web producer, and has spent most of her free time in the last 15 years supporting the preservation of Tibetan culture, working as either staff or volunteer in a number of Tibetan support organizations, including the Milarepa Foundation, Tibet Online, the Committee of 100 for Tibet and San Francisco Team Tibet.

Lobsang and Yolanda are married and live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where they love to cook and eat Tibetan food :-)
