Happy Lunar New Year

Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche sends his greetings to friends and sangha members worldwide, with wishes for a  Happy Lunar New Year of the Fire Rooster

Happy Lunar New Year!

Nalandabodhi centers around the world are celebrating the Lunar New Year, otherwise known as Losar in Tibetan. Every year in the Tibetan calendar is associated with an animal — 2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster.

Rooster is our alarm clock

Rooster, by nature, wakes people up, Rinpoche says. Rooster is our alarm clock. So, this year of the Fire Rooster is a great time and opportunity to wake up and not sleep away our days in ignorance. With his warm and generous humor, Rinpoche encourages us in his Losar message to engage in and focus on practice, to be patient and to maintain a positive attitude.
