During four holy times each year, according to the Tibetan calendar, Root Institute organises a celebration of the most significant events in Lord Shakyamuni Buddha's life, which we call our Festival of Lights & Merit.
Lhabab Duchen celebrates when Lord Buddha actually descended from the God Realm of Thirty-Three after teaching his mother and the gods living there Dharma for several months. As a merit-multiplying day, karmic results of actions on this day are multiplied 100 million times. The high point of our three-day festival is the merit-multiplying day which in 2018 will be on 31 October.
