Losar also known as Tibetan New Year, is a festival in Tibetan Buddhism. Traditionally Tibetans celebrate with ancient ceremonies representing the struggle between good and evil and with traditional dancing and singing. It is also the first day of the auspicious period of 15 Days of Miracles when the merit of virtuous actions performed is multiplied by 100 million. Losar culminates on the full moon day of Chotrul Düchen.

On this day we also remember Lama Thubten Yeshe, the precious founder of the FPMT, who passed away in 1984 on the first day of the Tibetan New Year.

A Guru Puja with Tsog (traditional offerings left) will be held.
