Sunday 24 November, 2013 is the last duchen day in this year. This day is Lha Bab Duechen, Descent from Heaven Day, the day that Shakyamuni Buddha returned from the Heaven of the 33 where he had gone to teach Dharma to his mother Mahamaya and dewas.

Today is the full moon, and also the anniversary of Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche. _/\_

And then on this Sunday, the 19th of January it is the anniversary of the mahaparinirvana of HH Dudjom Rinpoche, the regent of Guru Rinpoche who showed us such vast kindness, and whose light continues to radiate wisdom blessings through space. It is a great day to do Guru Yoga, tsok offering, etc.
