Lhabab Duchen

We are hosting Lhabab Duchen on November 7, 9:00 – 10:30 am EST. Lhabab Düchen, also known as Buddha’s Descent from Tushita, is one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar. As a Buddha Multiplying Day, karmic results of actions on this day are multiplied one hundred million times. This amazing result is sourced by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to the Vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic. This day is considered to be very auspicious for practice. To celebrate the occasion we will have a special program, Tsunma Tenzin Dasel will offer a guided meditation, mantra recitation, and a short clip of the Khandro Cham, or Dakini Dances, being held at Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery in India earlier that day.

COVID-19 Announcement

We hope you are staying safe during these unprecedented times. In order to do our part in flattening the curve, we decided to cancel all activities at Tashi Gatsel Ling Buddhist Center until further notice. We will keep a close eye on the coronavirus developments and will resume our programming when it will be safe to do so. 

Certainly, this presents a great opportunity for our practice. In meditation we can be reminded of our infinite wellbeing and purity of mind; when the mind is at ease there can be no disease. 

We will be holding everyone in prayer. The good news? Everything is impermanent. 

Stay positive, stay healthy!

May all benefit.
