Lha Bab Duchen commemorates Buddha Shakyamuni’s return to the human world after teaching his Mother in the god realms, where he spent three months imparting teachings and repaying her kindness.
During this day, it is said that the effects of positive and negative actions are multiplied 10 million times, so Dharma practice is strongly encouraged.
