Happy Losar!

Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche

Losar Tashi Delek! The Tibetan New Year begins on February 5th, which presents an excellent opportunity for renewal and growth. The first fifteen days of the the first lunar month until the full moon on February 19 are considered to be highly auspicious. It is said that the effects of intentions and actions multiply millions-fold during this time, so it is very good to engage in virtuous activities such as meditation, recitation, helping others, practicing loving kindness and generosity, reconciling conflicts, letting go of guilt or resentments, overcoming addictions, and making virtuous aspirations. Please celebrate with us during this time!
