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.

On July 14th, 2017,  Khenchen Sodnam Tenpa passed into Parinirvana. He was the main tutor at Kathog University and Lama Chimed’s youngest uncle. In the days that preceded the parinirvana, he gave guidance to his disciples khenpos and tulkus in Kathog, and let them know that he would enter retreat. Read more.

Amongst the many advices and instructions that he left, there is the request that his image, his name or qualities would not be used under any pretext to generate donations. Kathog lineage holders should bear this in mind. Those who failed to fulfill this request would be breaking the lineage.
