Happy Chotrul Duchen!

Celebrated on the full moon (the fifteenth day) of the first Tibetan lunar month, Chotrul Duchen (the ‘Day of Miracles’) is the first of four major prayer festivals in the Tibetan Buddhist calendar commemorating great events in the Buddha's life. The lunar month goes from new moon to new moon and the entire first month of the Tibetan calendar is called Bum Gyur Dawa (100,000 month). In this month it is considered that the results of all actions both positive and negative are multiplied a hundred thousand times. The first 15 days of the New Year commemorates the miracles that the Buddha performed to instill faith and devotion in the Dharma. Chotrul Duchen marks the end of the first 15 days and it is the first “Düchen” or “great occasion” in the Tibetan calendar, marking the beginning of the New Year. Since actions are multiplied 100,000 times, it is considered very beneficial to engage in positive activities throughout the month and especially on this day!
