Losar Tibetan New Year 2023 – The Year of the Water Hare (Rabbit)


About the Event:

Losar is the Tibetan New Year falling this year on 21st February

Traditionally, Tibetans mark Losar by joining together to acknowledge the passing of any negative karma in the previous year, and to set a strong positive motivation for the year ahead. It’s also a social time of appreciating the strong karmic bonds that connect us with those around us and celebrating the opportunities we have to create positive potential together. Tibetans create auspiciousness at this time by changing their old prayer flags for new and making offerings to invite generosity and abundance into their lives in the year ahead.

On this day we also remember Lama Thubten Yeshe, the precious founder of Chenrezig Institute and the FPMT, who passed away in 1984 on the first day of the Tibetan New Year. It is an opportunity to reflect on our priorities in life and Lama Yeshe’s emphasis on our developing a growing awareness of our potential for inner awakening.
