Lhabab Duchen 2020: How to Celebrate:
These auspicious occasions (düchen) inspire us to practice extra Dharma by engaging in various virtuous activities. It is said that all merits created on these auspicious days are multiplied up to one hundred thousand times! What better way to use those merits other than further dedication towards Buddhahood for all beings? And that’s what we do at the Buddhist Institute of Universal Compassion.
