Losar Tashi Delek 2024!

Losar, which in Tibetan means ‘’new year,” is celebrated widely by Tibetans and Tibetan Bön and Buddhist centers throughout the world. This is the time to reflect on the passing of the old year and face the possibilities of the New Year. Losar will be celebrated by Ligmincha International centers worldwide. Traditionally, the first day of Losar begins three days of celebration. For those living near Ligmincha Texas, here are the Losar activities. Everyone may participate in the Sang Chod ceremony via Zoom and/or in-person in Galveston.

Losar in Galveston, Texas

11:30am CST in person

Geshe Denma will open celebration with releasing bait fish into the bayou, a joyous ritual to give new life to sentient beings and accumulate positive karma.  We do this ritual and dedicate the merit to the long life and health of beloved HE Yongdzin Rinpoche.  He is 99 years old.


12:30 pm CST by Zoom and in person

Geshe Denma will lead a Sang Chod smoke offering ceremony in conjunction with Ligmincha International.  This event is free and open to all on Zoom. Everyone is welcome to join.
To participate please register here:   https://forms.gle/kAtcGY8tutao6HR16.

The Zoom activities of Ligmincha International are described in EST, so please consider your time zone in planning participation.

We will recite prayers to all the yidams and protector deities and ask for their protection for all practitioners and sentient beings. This ceremony pacifies all obstacles and causes of disharmony into the vastness of outer, inner, and secret space and is conducted outside.

Contact Jackie Cole for in person directions to fish release and sang cho rituals at jackie.cole001@comcast.net.

Following the celebration, those who wish can go to lunch together in Galveston. This will be a Mardi Gras weekend in Galveston so those who wish can join those activities after.
