Celebrate the close of our academic term and our Fall fundraising campaign on December 18th, 2022 with Ganden Ngamchoe, the annual Tibetan Buddhist celebration of our teacher Je Tsongkhapa. To be followed by a holiday party/potluck with our community at Maitripa College!

This auspicious and holy day is celebrated on the twenty-fifth day of the tenth month of the Tibetan calendar, which is December 18th this year, and is traditionally celebrated with prayers, aspirations, and a festival of lights.  We will also celebrate the coming Winter Solstice which marks the beginning of the rebirth of the sun when the gradual waning of daylight hours is reversed and we move into the season of longer and more light-filled days.

We invite you to join us in offering aspirations and lights to close 2022 and welcome the new year!  All are welcome, but please click below to RSVP to help with our planning for in person attendance – or join us online by Zoom using the other link.
