Buddha Shakyamuni Puja for Chokhor Duchen

Sunday 4 August, 14:00 – 16:00

Chokhor Duchen commemorates the anniversary upon which Shakyamuni Buddha first began teaching the Dharma. To celebrate the ‘first turning of the Wheel of Dharma’ there will be a short teaching on the Four Noble Truths, followed by a Shakyamuni Buddha puja (chanted prayers). It is auspicious to perform meritorious activities on holy days, such as making offerings, reciting mantras, doing pujas and being kind and compassionate to the beings we share this world with. All are welcome to join in or just sit and enjoy the blessings.
