Losar- Tibetan New Year / Chinese New Year

February 5


Tashi Delek!
Losar is the Tibetan New Year celebrated every February. It commemorates the first day of the first month of the lunar calendar which Tibetans follow. Traditionally a ritual of appeasement to the local gods, Losar festivities took a new inclination with the arrival of Buddhism. Further, it celebrated the enthronement of the Tibetan King. All this resulted in the birth of a new moniker for the festival –– Bak Gyal Lo: Bal meaning Tibet, Gyal meaning King, and Lo, meaning year. The traditional revelry and rituals of the three-day festival are all focused around the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism. The year of the pig!
