Chotrul Duchen: Celebrating Buddha Shakyamuni’s Miracles!
Group Meditation and Food Offering Ceremony
7:00 – 8:30pm
The first full moon in the Tibetan lunar calendar is celebrated as the Day of Miracles, or Chotrul Duchen, which commemorates the final day of miraculous display by the Buddha which lasted 15 days. The Buddha performed the miracles in response to a challenge from six rival teachers. These 15 days are merit-multiplying days in which any virtue created is magnified millions of times.
