In order to inspire the devotion of his future disciples, and to support their accumulation of merit, Shakyamuni Buddha displayed a different miracle each day for fifteen days. Tibetan Buddhists rejoice in this during the festival of Chötrul Düchen, the first fifteen days of the first month in the Tibetan lunar calendar.
During this festival, the effects of positive or negative actions of body, speech and mind are multiplied by 100,000. On the tenth day, Guru Rinpoche’s Day, and the fifteenth day, the full moon day, or Chötrul Düchen, these effects are multiplied 10 million times!
Therefore, on this 10th day, the Samye Sangha will gather together in-person and online to accumulate the merit of practicing a Tukdrub Sampa Lhündrup Tsok Bum for the benefit of beings. Sangha members in Nepal will be welcome to join in person, and the global sangha will be invited to join online. The tsok offerings will begin at 8am Kathmandu time, which is in the evening in the Americas on February 28th. You can find your local time here.
