Last Saturday, November 7, the auspicious date of Lha Bab Duchen was celebrated with intensive practice and freeing lives. Lha Bab Duchen celebrates Buddha’s descent to this world after having spent three months giving teachings in the Heaven of the Thirty-three.

On this occasion, 20 kilos of snails and several hens were released, and Riwo Sang Chö offering, Buddha Shakyamuni ts’og and Dharmapalas practice were performed.

At Orgyen Chö Dzong, Buddha Shakyamuni’s ts’og was led by H.E. Kyabje Dungse Namgay Dawa Rinpoche. He generously broadcast the practice via Facebook.
