October 31st, 2018 is the Buddhist Sacred Day of Lhabad Duchen. One of the four holy days of the life of the Buddha’s Life. This day is when Shakyamuni Buddha descended back to earth on the golden ladder from the Heaven Realms. He spent 3 months in the Heaven Realms teaching his Mother, who had passed away when he was born. The Buddha was requested to return to earth for his wise and compassionate teachings. This day is believed to be auspicious. Karma is said to multiply 10 million times for positive actions, meditation and generosity. Caution, karma also multiplies for unwholesome action on this day too. This auspicious day is based on the lunar calendar.
