Almost a hour left still for Chökhor Düchen.

Even though Chökhor Düchen 2019 technically ended August 5th 5:17 A.M. Bodhgaya time I believe (if I’m not mistaken, in India & Tibet the new day starts at sunrise); it may not be an rigid technicality in other time zones.

I.e. I would imagine that the occasion lasts at least until sundown for the time zones that are still in August Fourth....

Autumn Equinox is in about ten hours.

I believe the multiplication of merits is 10,000, 100,000, or maybe even a million or more.

Is Losar, Tibetan New Year, a merit multiplier day?

And if so, does anyone know how many times merits are multiplied on Losar?

All I had to do was open up a Tibetan calendar to see that from the New Moon on Losar to the Full Moon on Chotrul Duchen, Anniversaries of the Buddha Śākyamuni and Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche, would all be Merit-multiplying days.

All fifteen days are merit multiplying days, when the merit of virtuous actions performed on these days is multiplied by 100 million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche from the vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic.
