Lhabab Duchen celebrates Guru Shakyamuni Buddha’s return to the Earth from the God-Realm of the Thirty-Three after teaching the Dharma for several months to the Gods, including his mother, Mayadevi, who died a week after Buddha’s birth and had been reborn in this realm. Due to Lhabab Duchen being a merit-multiplying day, the karmic results of any actions done on this day are multiplied 100 million times.

The most beneficial thing to have peace and to stop the wars is recitation of the Golden Light Sutra. This is the most beneficial thing to bring peace, everyone should try to do this, no matter how busy they are, even to recite one or two pages, even a few lines. […] So by reciting the whole text is unbelievably beneficial, one collects extensive merits, liberates numberless sentient beings from the oceans of suffering and brings them to enlightenment.
– Lama Zopa Rinpoche
