Losar Celebration – Tibetan New Year

Tibetan New Year Celebration: Metal-Rat Year 2147
Losar is the Tibetan word for New Year and the most important holiday in Tibet.

The Tibetan year starts between the beginning of February and beginning of March according to our calendar. 24 February 2020 is the first day of the Tibetan metal-rat year 2147.


During the last days of the old year the houses are cleaned and people take baths. Furthermore, religious purification rituals are performed. On the first 3 days of the new year colourful celebrations take place – with family and friends as well as in the monasteries – in order to thank the old year and to resolve to take the Buddhist path in the follwing year. Losar is followed by Monlam, the two-week-long Great Prayer Festival.
