Upcoming Auspicious Days
During the time from the first day of Losar to the first full moon in the Tibetan lunar calendar, it is celebrated as the Day of Miracles, or Chötrul Duchen. The Buddha performed the miracles in response to a challenge from six rival teachers. These 15 days are merit-multiplying days in which any virtue created is multiplied by millions of times. Therefore, it is an important time to focus on our practice in all different means.
Chotrul Düchen – Display of Miracles – commemorates the last day of the Buddha’s 15-day miraculous display. On this auspicious day, the merit of both virtuous and non-virtuous activities enacted today is multiplied ten million-fold.
