We will be reciting The Sutra of Fortunate Aeons.
(LHABAB DÜCHEN DAY)
Lhabab Düchen is a Buddhist festival celebrated to observe Buddha's descent from The Heaven of Thirty-Three back to earth.
Buddha had left for The Heaven Of Thirty-Three, in order to give teachings to benefit the gods in that desire realm, and to repay the kindness of his mother by liberating her from Samsara.
Buddha has accepted to return to earth as he was requested by his followers. He returned to earth by a special triple ladder prepared by Viswakarma on this day. This event is considered to be one of the eight great deeds of the Buddha.
On Lhabab Düchen, the effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied times.
We must engage in virtuous activities like reciting prayers, offering Tsok, offering smoke ritual in the morning and reading Buddha’s scriptures on this very special day.
