Chötrul Düchen, also known as Chonga Choepa or the Butter Lamp Festival, is one of the four festivals commemorating four events in the life of the Buddha, according to Tibetan traditions. Chötrul Düchen closely follows Losar, the Tibetan New Year. This festival celebrates the Buddha's display of miracles for fifteen days in order to bolster the devotion of disciples.
