Lhabab Duchen Celebration – 10 Million Day

Shakyamuni Buddha on the main altar at KPc

November 10th, 2017 KPC will be celebrating Lha Bab Duchen and all are welcomed.
Khenpo Norgay will be joining us as Vajra Master

Lhabab Düchen is one of the four Buddhist festivals commemorating four events in the life of the Buddha, according to Tibetan traditions. Lhabab Düchen occurs on the 22nd day of the ninth lunar month according to Tibetan calendar.

Lhabab Duchen is a Buddhist festival celebrated to observe Buddha’s descent from The Heaven of Thirty-Three back to earth.

Buddha had left for The Heaven Of Thirty-Three (Trayastrimsa) at the age of 41, in order to give teachings to benefit the gods in that desire realm, and to repay the kindness of his mother by liberating her from Samsara.

He was exhorted by his follower and representative Maudgalyayana to return, and after a long debate and under a Full Moon agreed to return. He returned to earth a week later by a special triple ladder prepared by Viswakarma, the god of machines. This event is considered to be one of the eight great deeds of the Buddha.

On Lhabab Duchen, the effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied ten million times. It is part of Tibetan Buddhist tradition to engage in virtuous activities and prayer on this day.
