November 15: Lhabab Duchen, Tibetan Buddhist holiday (Buddha’s Descent From Tushita Heaven)

One of the four great holy days in the Tibetan calendar, Lhabab Duchen marks the anniversary of Shakyamuni Buddha’s return to Earth after spending three months in the god realms teaching Dharma to his mother. Lord Buddha’s return was a time of rejoicing for his disciples and is one of the four main Buddhist festivals commemorating special events in the life of Shakyamuni Buddha. In the Tibetan tradition it’s a day for making prayers and practicing virtue as all merit created on this special day is multiplied 100 million times. 

We will be doing special prayers in honor of this holiday during the Tara retreat on the 13th
