Chokhor Duchen, also known as the Festival of Turning the Wheel of Dharma, commemorates the anniversary upon which Shakyamuni Buddha first began teaching the Dharma. 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 Shakyamuni to teach. Accepting, Buddha Shakyamuni turned the Wheel of Dharma for the first time at Sarnath by teaching on the Four Noble Truths. The Buddha preached His first sermon to the five monks at the Deer Park in Varanasi. Chokhor Duchen takes place this year on Saturday 6th August. As a Buddha Multiplying Day, karmic results of actions on this day are multiplied one hundred million times.Gold Coast teachings starting Monthly Monday 6.30 -7.30pm see calendar 7.00-8.00pm Shantideva's A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life "Enthusiasm chapter" teachings Fridays7.00pm and Guru Pujas and Tara Pujas are at Uki Gompa and every second Sundays Gold Coast teaching 6.30pm please see calender.
