Dear Members and Friends,  

As part of our ongoing personal commitment to preserve Tibet’s unique cultural and spiritual traditions, the Society hosts a celebration of Losar, the Tibetan New Year. This year, our Losar Celebration will be held on March 1, 2020. 

Losar, the Tibetan New Year, is held on the 1st day of the 1st month according to the Tibetan Lunar Calendar.  The ceremony begins with Kushok offering the Body, Speech and Mind Mandala, a khata and a monetary offering to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Kushok will then offer barley to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Gaden Samten Ling's President and members then make their own offerings to His Holiness and the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas before offering a khata and offerings to Kushok. Desi, sweet rice, and Chai Tea are offered to His Holiness and Kushok and then to all the guests. Kushok recites an offering prayer and guests then enjoy the tea and rice. Our Teacher and President make short speeches and then Kushok leads us in auspicious prayers and long life prayers. After the dedication we dress warmly and go outside for the traditional Sangsol Offering ceremony. 


After the ceremony a lunch will be served.  We invite our members to contribute to the lunch by bringing a potluck item.


We are looking for helpers to assist with set up, to help in the kitchen and with clean up and to perform other various tasks. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up.  


Thank you in advance for your kind generosity.
