Chökor Düchen

Tuesday 9 July 2024

Join Us!

Celebrating Buddha's turning of the wheel of Dharma.

Uniquely with H.E. Ling Rinpoche

Please specify the prayers/names for the  special dedication if you have any.


Are you ready for Chökor Düchen?
We are fast approaching this auspicious merit-multiplying day. It occurs on the fourth day of the sixth Tibetan lunar month.

For seven weeks after his enlightenment, Buddha did not teach. Finally, encouraged by Indra and Brahma, he turned the Wheel of Dharma for the first time, at Sarnath, by teaching the ‘Four Noble Truths’

This year we have the great fortune of H.E. Ling Rinpoche’s attendance for some of the events. The main events will take place in a big tent and we hope to welcome 200 people!

At Nalanda, we also aim to have a meaningful Chökhor Düchen day. We organise a number of events as you can see in the schedule, and you are invited to all of them :).

H.E. Ling Rinpoche will still be here from the retreat that happened just the weekend before. He will attend some part of the events, if his schedule allows!

05:30 — 08:00 Mahayana precepts followed by Ganden Lha Gyama
