Chötrul Duchen: Special ceremonies celebrating Buddha Shakyamuni’s miraculous activities at the conclusion of the Miracle Month.
During the first two weeks of the Tibetan New Year, it is celebrated that the Buddha displayed a miracle each day to increase the merit and devotion of us – his future disciples. During this time, the benefit of one’s actions is multiplied 100,000 fold. The Miracle Month culminates in Chötrul Duchen: The Day of Miracles. On this full moon day, the effect of one’s actions is multiplied 10 million fold. This is truly a most auspicious day to practice!
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche will lead practice for the worldwide sangha, webcast from Padma Samye Ling. We hope that you can join us!

Practicing the Seven Chapter Prayer of Guru Padmasambhavaby Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche
and Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
The Seven Chapter Prayer unites devotion, bodhichitta, and Dzogchen meditation in the form of a Guru Yoga practice on Guru Rinpoche. As the great master Karma Chagme said, absolute Guru Padmasambhava is the innate nature of mind, and the innate nature of the mind is the innate nature of everything. In order to fully realize this, we need to increase our devotion, joy, and bodhichitta. Then we visualize and supplicate Guru Padmasambhava with practices like the Seven Chapter Prayer, and we complete everything by resting in Dzogchen meditation and then dedicating the merit for our families, friends, and all living beings. This is the way to achieve enlightenment. It is how we can increase our inner beauty and let it shine to the world.
