CHOTRUL DÜCHEN 2020
9 March 16:00 a 18:00
March 9th, 16.00, Shakyamuni tsog
Led by: Lama Yeshe Chödrön
Chotrul Düchen, the ‘Festival of Miracles’, is one of the four major Buddhist holidays. The first fifteen days of the year celebrate the fifteen days on which, in order to increase the merit and the devotion of future disciples, Buddha displayed a different miracle.
The leaders of India’s six main philosophical schools challenged the Buddha to a contest of miraculous powers. The Buddha displayed a different miracle each day for fifteen days, and, utterly defeating his opponents, inspired many individuals to follow the Dharma.
During this day the karmic consequences of all actions (positive and negative) are multiplied by 100 million. The most advisable thing is to invest this auspicious day in doing spiritual practices to move faster on the path to Enlightenment.
