Lha Bab Düchen this year takes place on 19 November 2019. It marks the day when Shakyamuni Buddha descended from the Heaven of the Thirty-three after giving teachings to his mother who had been reborn there. On this auspicious day, all virtue created is multiplied 100 million times as stated in the Vinaya text “Treasure of Quotations and Logic“. Join us in celebrating this day with auspicious and merit making activities.
