This anniversary commemorates when the Buddha returned to earth after teaching in a god realm in order to benefit the gods there and to repay the kindness of his mother by liberating her from samsara. This is one of the special twelve deeds of the Buddha.
The effects of virtuous actions are multiplied tremendously today!
Enjoy wonderful thoughts and actions of love, compassion, and wisdom!
Watch Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche explain the meaning of this special day:
