Happy Losar! Please join us to practice Lama Chopa Puja with Tsog as we celebrate the Tibetan New Year. Losar is also when Lama Thubten Yeshe, our name-sake and founder of the FPMT passed away. We will continue tradition of keeping the memory of Lama Yeshe alive by watching video of Lama. This Losar marks the 36th year since Lama Yeshe’s passing away.

Losar marks the beginning of the 15 Days of Miracles, a period when Lord Buddha performed many miracles to benefit others. Lama Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelug school, established the Great Prayer Festival (Monlam Chenmo) to coincide with this special occasion in 1409. Lama Zopa Rinpoche, citing the Vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic, teaches that the karmic results of non-virtuous and virtuous actions are multiplied by one hundred million during Buddha Multiplying Days such as these. It is a very powerful time to practice – such as taking the eight Mahayana precepts, completing nyung näs, and reciting sutras – and strengthen one’s commitment to engaging in virtuous activity.

When coming to a tsog, please bring a food offering to share. This is usually a snack item that can be easily passed out. All are welcome.
