Tashi Delek Happy Losar

Enjoy photos of the 2013 Losar celebration at KaNying Shedrup Ling Monastery in Boudhanath Nepal featuring our beloved teacher Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche.

Losar is Tibetan New Year which begins on February 24. Prior to the new year, we work to purify the negativities of the past in order to create the conditions that will bring good fortune and merit into the new year.

Join us as at our Losar Open House and Bonfire on Sunday February 23 from 1-3pm. Light snacks and drinks will be on hand as we light a bonfire to symbolically clean out the old year. Bring something to toss in, to let go of past obstacles. And practicing generosity in the form of a food, drink or money donation creates an auspicious beginning for the new year!

May all beings be happy!
