Chokhor Duchen

24 hour prayer vigil for all beings liberation

The first turning of the Wheel of Dharma by the Buddha Shakyamuni.

For seven weeks after his enlightenment, Buddha did not teach. Finally encouraged by Indra and Brahma, he turned the Wheel of Dharma for the first time at Samath, teaching the Four Noble Truths.

On this day the effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied ten million times.

Jetsunma’s dedication prayer

“By this effort may all sentient beings be free of suffering
May their minds be filled with the nectar of virtue
In this way may all causes resulting in suffering be extinguished
And only the light of compassion shine through out all realms.”
