Traditional Tibetan New Year – Losar 2018

Gesar Dance on Tuesday, February 13th, 2018. Starts at 10am.

gesarLama Chimed Rigdzin teaches that Gesar Dance and practice are very important at this time. This time is called the Degenerate time because, we, humans, have been engaging in negative actions and thoughts, walking the negative path. That means the degeneration is not due to the time itself, but due to the negativity amongst us, humans. This engagement in negative deeds and thoughts comes from the influence of negative local beings. For this reason, Gesar is so important, as he has the power to subdue such negativities, making peace in the world.


The event is open to everyone, at no cost.   Also see about the Drubchod of Yeshe Rabar.
