Lhabab Duchen 2017



Lhabab Duchen

at

Orgyen Chö Dzong

Greenville, New York 12083

Friday November 10th 2017

10am – 4pm

Lhabab Duchen is celebrated to observe Buddha Shakyamuni’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. This event is considered to be one of the great deeds of the Buddha.

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

As such, everyone is warmly welcomed to join us here at OCD for pujas and tsok on this special day.

The pujas will begin at 10am.

Lunch will be served at the centre around 12pm.

Shakyamuni Tsok will start at 2pm.

We look forward to seeing you on then.

 

Transportation & Accommodation

Please let us know if you’d like to attend. There will be some availability for people to stay at the center itself, so if you wish to lodge here, it is best to inform us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Also, if anyone knows they are coming by car and have any spare seats they could offer others, then again please let us know so we can coordinate this. (OCD contact details below).

Contribute to Tsok Feast Offerings

You are invited to make a contribution towards purchasing offerings for the tsok. If you are unable to attend, this is a good way to participate in the merit of the practice. Of course, attendees can also contribute. Please send your contribution as soon as possible so that it can be included in the offering on the day.
