Dear Dhamma Brothers and Sisters,
We hope you and your family are well,
Every year we celebrate Dhammacakka Day on the Asalha Purnima, this year it falls on 24th July 2021, Saturday.
Commemorating Bhagavan Buddha’s First Dhamma Discourse
“DHAMMACAKKA PAVATTANA SUTTA”
(SETTING IN MOTION THE WHEEL OF TRUTH)
& BEGINNING OF VASSAVASA
It is a great opportunity to see the monks and strengthen our commitment to Dhamma on this auspicious day.
It is also known as Guru Purnima, because Lord Buddha gave the first sermon on the full moon day and became the teacher-Guru of gods and men.
We heartily welcome you all to participate in the Dhammacakka Day Program from 9 AM.
Our vihara is OPEN, but you may also participate online with the below links
THE DHAMMACAKKA PAVATTANA SUTTA is the first discourse that Bhagavan Buddha delivered at the historic Sage’s Landing Retreat (Isipatana), in modern Sarnath, near Varanasi. This Sutta is the quintessence of the Dhamma. Therefore it has been especially venerated down the ages throughout the world. Ancient kings of India got this sutta inscribed on gold, silver, and copper plates and distributed them widely so that people may design their lives on the Truth enunciated by the Master. This sutta enunciates the essence of the Buddha’s fundamental teachings, comprising
- Avoiding Two Extreme Paths – Anta
- Practicing The Middle path – Majhima Patipada
- The Four Noble Truths – Cattari Ariya Saccani
- The twelve facets of the four–fold Truth – Dvadasakaram
