The celebration of the First Turning of the Wheel of Dharma
For seven weeks after his Enlightenment, the Buddha did not teach. Then, encouraged by his disciples, he turned the Wheel of the Dharma for the first time at Sarnath, India, teaching the Four Noble Truths:
- the truth of suffering, which is to be understood,
- the truth of the origin of suffering, which is to be abandoned,
- the truth of cessation, which is to be actualized,
- the truth of the path, which is to be relied upon.
On this day, all actions of our body, speech and mind are multiplied 10 million times!
It is recommended to meditate today on the Four Noble Truths and to recite Shakyamuni Buddha’s mantra as many times as possible to make an enlightened connection in this lifetime
Shakymuni Buddha's mantra:
TAYATA OM MUNI MUNI MAHA MUNIYE SOHA
