Tibetan New Year

Tibetan New Year

The Tibetan New Year is the most important festival that the Lhasa people celebrate. On the dawn of the first day of the 1st month, according to the Tibetan calendar, the Lhasa people, donned in their holiday’s best, go to fetch the new year’s first bucket of water from the source of a river, holy fountain, or ancient well. The fresh water is used to worship the Buddha and make buttered tea for the New Year’s Day celebration. After this, they add butter and worship statues of Buddha in the Jokhang and Romache Temples. When the sun has risen on the first day of the first Tibetan month, they will go into the streets holding “Chosu Qema” in their hands. They wish everyone they meet a “Happy New Year,” toast each other, and sing and dance. On the second day, they go out to visit. Finally, on the third day they climb onto their roofs to replace the old colorful sutra streamers with new ones, and plant sutra streamers by the rivers and in the mountains in prayer for good luck.
