Tibetan Buddhists celebrate a handful of holidays each year when the Buddha and lineage masters performed miracles, taught the Dharma, and were of great benefit to others.

Join in the observance of one of these special days – Lhabab Duchen (Buddha’s Descent from Tushita Heaven) by doing Guru Puja with us, led by Venerable Lozang Yönten, this weekend!

More About Lhabab Duchen

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.
