Chokhor Duchen
August 1, 2022

Known in English as “Wheel-Turning Day,” Chokhor Duchen commemorates the anniversary of Shakyamuni Buddha’s first teaching. It is said that for seven weeks after his enlightenment, the Buddha did not teach. Afterward, Indra and Brahma offered a dharma wheel (dharmachakra) and a conch shell and requested Shakyamuni Buddha to teach. Accepting, Shakyamuni Buddha turned the Wheel of Dharma for the first time at Sarnath in his teaching on the four noble truths.
