Losar Tashi Delek!!!

Shakyamuni Buddha in Bodhgaya
Losar Tashi Delek, my readers!  Today is the start of the Tibetan New Year. 

The next 2 weeks between Losar (22 Feb) and the Day of Miracles (8 Mar) commemorates the 15 days of Miracles where The Buddha uncharacteristically displayed his power by performing numerous miracles and won over a challenge from 6 heretical teachers, who were non-believers, with a daily display of miracles. 

The final 15th day came to be known as the Day of Miracles, or Chotrul Duchen, which falls on 8 March this year, commemorates the final day of miracles and we celebrate the full moon 15th of the first month in the Tibetan New Year. During this time, any merit you accumulate is multiplied 100 millions times! It is therefore a very powerful time to practice, make offerings and other virtuous activities. Virtuous thoughts and actions are highly encouraged during this time.

Book & Candle Comments
May all gurus live long and continue to turn the Wheel of Dharma. May everyone be mindful of and be purified of their body, speech and mind.  May all our days be bright in the Path.  Om ah hum!
