Losar - Tibetan New Year
Dear friends and Sangha,
Join us for this year's Losar celebration at CTBCC on Friday, February 16th at 6:30 pm!
We will be having our traditional Palden Lhamo Tea Ceremony and a meditation for peace.
"The Fifteen Days of Miracles—from the first day of the Tibetan new year (Losar, February 16) until the fifteenth (March 1)—commemorate the special time when Guru Shakyamuni Buddha showed miraculous powers in order to subdue the Six Founders, who lacked faith in him, and to inspire more faith in his followers. It culminates on the full moon, the fifteenth day of the lunar calendar."
All fifteen days are merit-multiplying days, when the merit of virtuous actions performed on these days is multiplied by 100 million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Looking forward to another blessed new year....
