Lhabab Duchen celebrates Guru Shakyamuni Buddha’s return to Earth from the God Realm of the Thirty-Three after teaching Dharma for several months to the gods, including his mother, Mayadevi, who had died a week after Buddha’s birth and been reborn there. As a merit multiplying day, the karmic results of actions done on this day are multiplied 100 million times. This amazing result is sourced by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to the Vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic.
Please join us on this auspicious day for a Shakyamuni Buddha Puja to accumulate merit for the benefit of all sentient beings. The Shakyamuni Buddha Puja is a rite of homage, making offerings and prayers to the teacher, the King of Sages, remembering his previous lives and biography.
