Losar 2024

Losar (Tibetan New Year) is coming soon (10th Feb this year). This is a great day to rejoice in other’s kindness! From all of us, a big thank you to Otto Per Mille of the Waldensian Church, helping MAITRI since 2004 (including MAITRI’s TB program 2020 and Mother & Child program 2021).

The Fifteen Days of Miracles are a time for pilgrimage and intensive Dharma practice. During this period, many Tibetan monasteries hold a Great Prayer Festival—Monlam Chenmo—for several days or even weeks, during which the Sangha recite prayers from morning until evening. (FPMT)

All fifteen days are merit multiplying days, when the merit of virtuous actions performed on these days is multiplied by 100 million, according to the vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic.
