Lama Chopa Puja on Losar

Friday, Feruary 16th

Happy Losar! Please join us to practice Lama Chopa Puja with Tsog as we celebrate the Tibetan New Year, which falls on Friday, February 16th, this year. Lama Zopa has asked us to dedicate the Lama Chopa Puja in honour of Lama Yeshe, FPMT Founder. This Losar marks the 35th year since Lama Yeshe’s passing away.

Losar also marks the beginning of the 15 Days of Miracles, a period when Lord Buddha performed many miracles to benefit others. The start of theTibetan New is considered to be a very auspicious period.

"According to the Vinaya text, “Treasure of Quotations and Logic”, all actions done on these special days are magnified by 100 million times. Some sutras further mention that the merit increases by ONE BILLION times. Hence they are referred to as merit multiplying days. Bearing the exponential effects in mind and through understanding how karma works, these are highly favourable days for accumulating as much merit as possible, while striving to avoid negative actions."
