Head over to the Institute this Sunday as Geshe-la Phelgye presents us withÂ with a specialÂ celebration at the Buddhist InstituteÂ August 4th, during our regular service.Â Â Chokhor DÃ¼chen is one of the most important “great occasion(s)”Â (dÃ¼chen) of the Tibetan Buddhist calendar as it marks Buddha Shakyamuni’s historic first turning of the Dharma wheel, that took place in Deer Park,Varanasi.
It is the Four Noble Truths thats paved the way to Nirvana for countless Buddhists over the past 2600 years; and continues to be the foundation of the path into the Buddha-hood for Mahayana practitioners. This important day falls on the fourth day of the sixth lunar month in the Tibetan calendar, which isÂ this-coming Sunday;Â Please RSVP via responding with your nameÂ by emailingÂ firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re able to join usÂ with this incredible opportunity.Â
If you live in the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene area and would like toÂ learn more about Buddhism from a master, this is the perfect place to start.Â There will be a celebratory vegan/vegetarian potluckÂ afterwards.
