As Losar, the Tibetan Buddhist New Year, approaches, we at KTC wish you a blessed holiday. As Lama Kathy mentioned in her Dharma Talk a few weeks ago, the first two weeks of the Tibetan New Year are called “The Month of Miracles” because of their association with an event in the Buddha’s life – when he performed a miracle every day for 15 days as part of a debate with non-Buddhist scholars. (He won the debate, by the way.)
As such, the first two weeks – from Losar Day Feb. 21 to the Miracles holiday celebrated on Tuesday March 7 – are considered a particularly auspicious time to make offerings, perform dharma practice, and practice virtue of all kinds.
But there are other auspicious times of the year, as well. You can read a short list here; https://www.dropbox.com/
