Losar, the Tibetan New Year

This year Losar, the Tibetan New Year, was celebrated on February 21. The auspicious days begin with Losar, continue for 15 days (known as “the Fifteen Days of Miracles”) and end with Chotrul Duchen, a full moon day that falls on March 7.
This occasion commemorates the days when Buddha Shakyamuni showed his followers, and those who doubted his enlightenment, numerous miracles that inspired their faith.
To joyfully welcome the New Year, some members of the ISAL Team met at Lama Tzong Khapa Institute in Pomaia, to take part in the ceremonies and festivities, and to rejoice in the work done so far, renewing their hopes and commitments in providing aid to refugees and underprivileged families.
May these auspicious days bring you happiness and we wish you all a year in which our solidarity and compassion together can truly change the lives of those in need.
