Best wishes for Tibetan New Year 2143!
May this Year of the Fire Monkey bring you a blossoming of health, well-being, as well as kindness and respect from everyone. May all – even the most secret dreams – both, the spiritual and the mundane ones be fulfilled!
In the year 2016, Losar - Tibetan New Year - begins on the 9th of February. But it happens to be a Tuesday, therefore we will postpone the celebration to Saturday, the 13th of February, thanks to which more people will be able to participate. The first fifteen days of a new year are considered to be very special so this change of date is nothing inappropriate.
Celebration will be led by Venerable Sangter Rinpoche. Beginning at about 11 a.m. Click "Read more" to see detailed programme.
We are kindly asking you to inform us early enough about the participation (see the registration form), best before the 9th of February. This will make organizing the event much easier, especially shopping!
On the 2nd of December 2015 His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche arrived in Kathmandu. On the 5th of December, long ritual of Mahakala Bernagchen, so called Gutor, started. Traditionally it is performed at the end of Tibetan year, short before Losar, which usually takes place in February. This year, the Drubchen is scheduled earlier due to the timing of the Kagyu Monlam. Most of the Benchen monks go to Bodhgaya in order to take part in prayers and teachings bestowed by His Holiness Karmapa.
