Chokhor Duchen July 23, 2012

Chokhor Duchen -- one of our wonderful "ten million days" -- falls on Monday, 23 July 2012. So, what are we celebrating?

Chokhor Duchen celebrates the first turning of the Wheel of Dharma. For seven weeks following his enlightenment, Buddha did not teach. Yet, after encouragement from Indra and Brahma, he turned the Wheel of the Dharma, at Sarnath, teaching the Four Noble Truths.
