The 15 Days of Miracles begin on Losar . All 15 days are merit multiplying days, which means that the karmic results of our actions are multiplied by 100 million. Please visit FPMT to learn more about Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s advice regarding merit multiplying days.
The 15 Days of Miracles commemorates the special time when Guru Shakyamuni Buddha showed miraculous powers in order to subdue six Tirthika, or non-Buddhist teachers, who lacked faith in him, and to inspire more faith in his followers. For the FPMT, Losar is a special time as it commemorates the anniversary of FPMT founder Lama Yeshe’s parinirvana at the dawn of Losar in 1984.
