Chothrul Dechen is the period starting on the first day of the new year until the fifteenth full moon, commemorating the event when Buddha Shakyamuni performed a different miracle each day to instil devotion and increase merit among heretics. Losar is the beginning of Chothrul Duchen and the New Year. The occasion is celebrated at Nalandra each year with a 16 Arhat Puja. There will be a shared lunch including traditional Tibetan sticky rice, tea and Kyabse. Traditional Tibetan dress is typically worn. It is a free event and online registration is required via facebook - please select "going".
