*THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD ONLINE VIA ZOOM – A LINK WILL BE EMAILED OUT TO YOU UPON COMPLETION OF REGISTRATION*

 

Join us, in collaboration with Shantideva Center (NYC), in celebrating Lhabab Düchen, the day when the Buddha descended from the God Realm of Thirty-Three after sharing the Dharma with the gods and his mother. This holiday is a Buddha Multiplying Day when karmic actions are one hundred million times stronger.

Today, just like any other day, is a perfect opportunity to engage more earnestly in one’s practice. Following the advice of Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche for Merit Multiplying Days, we are offering an array of meritorious practices, including a meditation that will help us examine the limitations of samsaric bliss and come closer to the everlasting bliss of liberation and enlightenment by developing wisdom and compassion.
