Chokhor Duchen (First Turning of the Wheel of Dharma)

The First Turning of the Wheel of Dharma (in Tibet referred to as Chokhor Duchen) is an important holiday in which we honor the day that the Buddha Shakyamuni first taught the four noble truths in Sarnath, India, and first turned the wheel of the dharma after attaining enlightenment.

It is celebrated on August 6 2016 and in 2017 on July 27th.
