1st Turning of the Wheel and
International Sangha Day
6 August 2016
This Wheel turning Day marks the day the Buddha first taught the Dharma after manifesting enlightenment and is one of the four important holy days of the year.
Significantly the karmic effect of positive (and negative) actions is magnified 100 million times on these holy days so practitioners try to undertake virtuous activities and keep their minds positive.
The program at our Centre is:
- 6.30am Precepts given by Geshe Sonam
- 2.00pm Set up extensive water and light offerings
- 5.00pm Light offerings and Shakyamuni Buddha Puja
