ABOUT THE ORAL TRANSMISSIONS

On various occasions, Lama Zopa Rinpoche has taught that receiving the oral transmission (lung) of prayers, practices, and texts is very beneficial.  In addition to multiplying the benefits of one's own recitations of the text by one hundrad, the oral transmission creates positive imprints on one's mind that leads to enlightenment. ~ excerpt taken from Lama Zopa Rinpoche on Oral Transmissions

ABOUT LHABAB DUCHEN

Occurring on the 22nd day of the ninth month on the Tibetan lunar calendar, Lhabab Düchen is one of the four major Buddhist Holy Days of the year.  This year, Lhabab Düchen takes place on Tuesday November 15, 2022.

On this day, we celebrate the Buddha’s return to beings in our realm after a three-month separation.  During that separation, Buddha had gone to the God Realm of Thirty-Three, a higher realm where his mother was reborn after giving him birth, in order to repay her kindness by giving teachings to liberate her from samsara. His teachings in the God Realm of the Thirty-Three also benefited the Arya Beings who lived there.

As a Buddha holy day, this is an auspicious day for practice, when the karmic effects of actions are multiplied one hundred million times, according to our Spiritual Director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, citing the Vinaya text The Treasure of Quotations and Logic.
