Chokhor Duchen this years falls on July 23. Within the Tibetan tradition, is it a celebration of Buddha Shakyamuni’s first turning of the wheel of Dharma. Traditionally, this day has been used for making pilgrimage, making offerings and doing virtuous practices.
Since Chokhor Duchen is a celebration of the Four Noble Truths, below is a series of teachings that his HH the Dalai Lama gave on this precious subject. Happy Chokhor Duchen everyone!
