Loser – Tibetan New Year
First full moon of the Tibetan New Year, but also one of the four major sacred days in Buddhism, marking four important events in Buddha Shakyamuni’s life.
This particular day is known as Chotrul Duchen in Tibetan (The ‘Festival of Miracles’). The first fifteen days of the Tibetan year celebrate the fifteen days on which, in order to increase the merit and devotion of future disciples, Buddha displayed various miracles.
It is said that on such an auspicious day the effects of all actions – both positive and negative – are multiplied by ten million.
