Join us at Land of Medicine Buddha for recitations on the occasion of
*Lhabab Duchen: Buddha’s Descent from the Heaven of the Thirty-Three*
Thu, Nov 9 (following Indian time)
5pm to about 6:15pm
Recitation of the “Diamond Cutter Sutra” and “Praise to Dependent Arising”
Lhabab Duchen celebrates Guru Shakyamuni Buddha’s return from the god realm Thirty-Three after teaching Dharma for several months to his mother, who was reborn there, along with other gods.
As a Buddha Multiplying Day, the karmic results of actions done on this day are multiplied 100 million times. This amazing result is sourced by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to the vinaya text “Treasure of Quotations and Logic”.
The texts we are reciting are ones recommended to make merit for the long life of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
