Lhabab Duchen

Tomorrow is Lhabab Duchen, one of the 4 most important days of the Buddhist calendar, when the Buddha descended from a Buddha realm after guiding his mother to enlightenment. It is also an important day in America, in the process of deciding a close presidential election. Our prayers go out for peace, tolerance, and respect. The country is so divided. So much is at stake. Elections need reform so all people can vote safely and timely. Campaign financing needs reform, as does unfair and unequal gerrymandering. There is much injustice and systemic racism to eliminate. All this work are the 1000 arms of Chenrezig practicing compassion in action. Fairness. Equality. Justice. Democracy.
