Dear Family and Friends
We are now entering the special month of the First Turning of the Wheel of Dharma known as “Chökhor Düchen” in Tibetan and you have read this many times. But as one of our teachers said “each time you read or hear of such stories your mind will be blessed.” Please follow the source for the story of “Chökhor Düchen.” :
Geshe la would like to do full Tara prayer today as it is a new moon. This is the great occasion in Buddha’s life which is the the First Turning of the wheel, The Four Noble Truth, his first teaching after attaining enlightenment.
So for today, please bring:
– your vajra and bell
– offerings without meat,eggs or cookies containing animal fat.
– no meat, eggs, onions or garlic until after the prayers.
Do not dwell in the past; do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
