Buddha Day – Lha Bab Duchen – 16 Sthaviras Puja
Lha Bab Duchen (‘Descent from the heaven realms’) is one of the four major festivals in the Buddhist year. It commemorates the return of the Buddha from the heaven realm of Tushita where he had gone to give teachings to his mother and the other beings reborn there.
The day will be marked with the recitation of The Praise of the Twelve Deeds of Sakyamuni Buddha and the very beautiful Sixteen Sthaviras Puja from 8pm-9pm.
The reading transmission is required to participate in the puja (this was given recently by Lama Jampa in Londn in October 2019). All welcome to sit in.
