Join us for a special recitation of the Sanghata Sutra on one of the holiest days of the Buddhist calendar – the anniversary of Guru Shakyamuni Buddha’s first teaching – First Wheel-Turning Day.
The merits created today are magnified many millions of times. Join in the community recitation dedicated to creating world harmony, and to the health and long life of HH the Dalai Lama and Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche. We will also offer delicious chai, and make personal and dedications. All welcome, no need to book, just come along!
It is recounted that for seven weeks after his enlightenment, the Buddha did not teach. After this period, Indra and Brahma offered a dharmachakra and a conch shell and requested Guru Shakyamuni Buddha to teach. Accepting, Guru Shakyamuni Buddha then turned the Wheel of Dharma for the first time at Sarnath, by teaching the four noble truths.
