LHA BAB DUCHEN
Sunday, November 24, 2013
All are graciously invited to celebrate this most auspicious day of Lha Bab Duchen which commemorates Buddha Shakyamuni’s Descent from the Gods realm.
The Buddha’s mother was reborn in Indra’s realm. To repay her kindness and to benefit beings there, Buddha spent three months teaching in the Gods realm. This day celebrates his return to teach in the human realm.
This day is rich with even greater significance as Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche and the PBC sangha in Sarnath, India will be celebrating the inauguration of the Many Doors of Auspiciousness Stupa Memorial in honor of our precious teacher, Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche.
This is a day of tremendous potential as the effect of one’s actions is multiplied 10 million fold! What a precious time for practice and meditation. What a most important time for virtuous deeds. What a beautiful time to remember our beloved teacher, Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche.
We will commemorate this day with the practice on Buddha Shakyamuni and tsok offering. As always, your freshly prepared or purchased vegetarian food offering is most appreciated. Please bring by 9:30 for placement on the tsok table.
