Celebrate Chökor Duchen after Monday Night Meditation Class

Celebrate Chökor Duchen after Monday Night Meditation Class

Date: Mon, Jul 16, 2018 7:30 pm - 8:40 pm
Duration: 1 Hour 10 Minutes

At the end of the Monday night Introduction to Buddhist Meditation class, please join us in lighting butter lamps in honor of Chökor Duchen, the day that Buddha Shakyamuni Buddha first turned the Wheel of Dharma, teaching the Four Noble Truths.

 

After the Buddha realized awakening beneath the Bodhi tree, he remained in contemplation. At first he was reluctant to teach, fearing that people would not understand his message. Finally, encouraged by Indra and Brahma, he shared his discovery of the truth in his first teaching.

 

This auspicious day is a “multiplying day” on which karmic results are said to be multiplied by one hundred million, so we make this a joyful opportunity to practice extra virtue. 

 

This class is held in the Maitreya Center, Mahayana shrine room.
