Losar - Tibetan New Year Celebration

10:30 am Sunday, February 23, 2020

Come join in celebrating Losar!

Kadampa Center will mark the Tibetan New Year, on Sunday, February 23, with traditional stories and prayer, hosted by Geshe Gelek and Geshe Sangpo. We will begin with processing the photo of His Holiness the Dalai Lama into the gompa to a seat of honor and respect on the high throne at the front of the room.

Friends from the Tibetan community will describe how the New Year is celebrated in Tibet, and they will sing and dance for our delight.


We will enjoy milk tea, Tibetan rice, and cookies during the celebration.

There will be no classes for the Family Program -- children are invited to remain in the gompa for the festivities.

The actual date of Losar is Monday, February 24. This day marks the beginning of the 14-day Days of Miracles, a festival of prayer. Lama Zopa Rinpoche advises us that this is an especially auspicious time to do spiritual practice, because our merit multiplies exponentially.

Sponsoring the Losar Celebration is a great way to create merit!

Sponsorship is a two-step process

Sponsors may wish to dedicate very simply - "For my mother, Rosemary" - or they might make more extensive spiritual wishes, such as ""May these teachings be the cause to liberate all sentient beings," or wishes for the teacher's long life, to benefit a person who is ill - any heart-felt positive intention!  You also can dedicate for more than one intention.
