Lhabab Düchen Sunday 24th November __/❤\__

‘Festival of Buddha’s Descent from Heaven'

KARMA MULITPLIED DAY (good or bad) x 10 million!

Lhabab Duchen is one of the four most important days in the Buddhist calendar. The 21st day of the 9th Tibetan month sees the celebration of Buddha’s return to the human realms from Indra’s Heaven; after spending three months and seven days in the sphere of the Deva’s, repaying his Mother’s kindness, liberating her and teaching the dharma. Buddha’s return to Earth (at the age of 41 – a Uranus oppostion, indicating a change of life) is considered to be one his eight great deeds.

From the feminine bliss realm (the realm of the 33, the Trayastrimsa) Buddha returned via a triple ladder, which was made by Vishvakarma, the Hindu god of architecture and machines. Built from gold, crystal and lapis lazuli, this triple ladder stretches all the way from Mount Meru to Earth (symbolic of illumination from crown chakra to base chakra, and the Tantrika using the central channel and right and left channels of the subtle body as vehicles for liberation).

At the appointed hour (on the Last Quarter Moon in Virgo, in definite aspect to the teaching Sagittarius Sun ) on the right-hand golden ladder appeared the all-powerful, all-seeing Bramha, with the fine form deities; on the left-hand crystal ladder came dorje-wielding Indra, with the Lords of the sensual worlds; while Buddha descended via the central lapis lazuli ladder, representing the middle path and an intimate relation with the realms of meditation, infinite space, and infinite consciousness; thus bringing protective wisdom of the Devas, from heaven to earth, the reborn Buddha illustrates how walking the Dharma path, the middle path, with loving kindness and compassion helps to overcomes ignorance and the duality of form and formless, nothing and everything.

Happy Lhabab Düchen everyone ! __/
