Lha Bab Düchen Celebration

Lha Bab Düchen in Tibetan translates as  The “Festival of the Descent from Heaven”.

On this 22nd day of the ninth month of the Tibetan calendar, we celebrate the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni’s descent from Trayastrima heaven after spending three months teaching his mother, Queen Mayadevi, and the beings in the realm of the gods.
