º Annual Activities º

Throughout the year, the monastery and nunnery perform certain activities according to the Tibetan lunar calendar. Many of these are related to removing obstacles from the previous year and gathering positive conditions for the new year and are beneficial to all people around the world. (See the activities starting from the Wrathful Padmasaṃbhava Pūjā and concluding with the Ocean of Amṛta Drubchen at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling.

Also of note are the four days commemorating significant events in the life of the Buddha: Chötrul Düchen, Saga Dawa Düchen, Chökhor Düchen and Lhabab Düchen. The effects of positive and negative actions are thought to be multiplied 10 million times on these days and are therefore very auspicious days to do spiritual practice, sponsor prayers and make offerings.
