Chokhor Duchen: Anniversary of the Buddha Turning the Wheel of Dharma – July 14
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche will lead mediation practice centered around our Great Kindness Teacher, Buddha Shakyamuni, and his first Turning of the Wheel of Dharma in Sarnath. This practice will be live-streamed from Padma Samye Ling, our beautiful monastery and retreat center in the Catskill Mountains.
For Buddhists, this is one of the most sacred days of the year when karmic effects are multiplied millions of times, so meditation practice and virtuous deeds are strongly encouraged and celebrated!

Practice texts to have on hand for this practice include
- Extended Buddha Sadhana (includes the Twelve Deeds of the Buddha and other prayers)
- Daily Prayers
- Dharmapala Prayers
