Celebration of the Enlightenment and Parinirvana of the Buddha
On the morning of the 25th of May we celebrated the Enlightenment and Parinirvana of the Buddha as well as the 33rd anniversary of Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche's ordination. The day started with the offering of butterlamps and katas to the Buddha while everyone recited the traditional Neten Chachok prayers (Praise to the 16 Elders). Everyone present then left the Temple for a procession around the Temple while carrying the 103 volumes of the Kangyur (teachings of the Buddha) which were then safely delivered into the new Tibetan Library. 1000 butterlamps were then lit before everyone returned to the Temple to make further aspiration prayers.
