Losar 2020
Losar — Tibetan New Year 2147 — Year of Iron Mouse
Monday, February 24, 2020 - 8am
Riwoche Temple, Toronto
All are invited to join the Riwoche community for Losar, the celebration of the Tibetan New Year for 2147, the Year of the Iron Mouse.
In observance of the occasion, people do not eat before coming to the temple. After chanting and praying together we go downstairs and enjoy some native Tibetan fare (rice with raisins and Tibetan cookies!). In this way we have the first meal of the New Year together. It is customary to buy some new, never worn, clothes and wear them to the event. It is also customary to make offerings to the lamas and monks of the Temple when visiting on this day.
For Losar we are asking that traffic is kept to a minimum on Heintzman Street. People are to park either on Dundas or at one of the two public lots close by located on Keele Street: North of Dundas at 400 Keele Street, South of Dundas at 351 Keele Street. Exception is only to drop off elderly or those who need assistance.
