Lha Bab Duchen

On Sunday 20th of November a 16 Arhat Puja was held to celebrate Lha Bab Duchen. This day commemorates Buddha’s return to this world after he had been teaching in Heaven Thirtythree to benefit the gods in that desire realm, and to repay the kindness of his mother by liberating her from Samsara.

The KIBI sangha and lay practitioners gathered for this puja along with locals. All enjoyed taking part in the puja and the following wonderful lunch offered by a visiting generous family.
