Celebrating Buddha’s descent from God Realm of Thirty-three


Are you ready for Lhabab Duchen?

We are fast approaching the auspicious merit-multiplying day of Lhabab Duchen which commemorates Buddha’s descent from God Realm of Thirty-three.

Lhabab Duchen, which is on November 15 this year, is one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar. On this day, the karmic results are multiplied by 300 million times, as it commemorates Buddha’s descent from God Realm of Thirty-three

Why is it special? Because this day celebrates Guru Shakyamuni Buddha’s return to Earth from the God Realm of the Thirty-Three and as a merit multiplying day, the karmic results of actions done on this day are multiplied 100 million times! What a precious opportunity to fill up our stores of merit and progress on the Path!

There are many practices one can do to take full advantage of the opportunity of this day. Particularly here at the monastery, there will be several activities :


Some of the planned activities are:

  • Animal Liberation Puja ⏰ 2pm 📌  near big stupa
  • Recitation of Vajra Cutter Sutra ⏰ 5pm 📌  big gompa
  • Recitation of Sutra Remembering the Three Jewels ⏰ 5pm 📌 big gompa
  • Guru Puja with Tsog ⏰ 7pm 📌 live-streamed
