Buddhist Holiday: Lhabab Duchen/Descent from Tushita



Lhabab Duchen celebrates Guru Shakyamuni Buddha’s return to Earth from the God Realm of the Thirty-Three (Tushita Realm) after teaching Dharma for several months to the gods, including his mother, Mayadevi, who died a week after Buddha’s birth and was reborn there. As a merit multiplying day, the karmic results of actions done on this day are multiplied 100 million times. This amazing result is sourced to the vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic.
