Chötrul Düchen is one of four major Tibetan Buddhist holy days, celebrated on the first full moon after lunar new year.   It is known as the Butter Lamp Festival, Festival of Lights, or Great Day of Miraculous Manifestations.  It commemorates the day that Buddha Shakyamuni settled the question of his enlightenment with naysayers by performing many miracles.  This full moon day is considered a “merit multiplier” day, with the effects of both positive and negative actions multiplied ten million times.   On this auspicious day, we will gather online via Zoom to read the Heart Sutra, Praise of the Twelve Great Deeds, and Praise of Buddha Shakyamuni–texts will be shown on screen.   Participants may arrange an altar that can be seen on camera with flowers, candles, and images of Buddha.  We hope to “see” you there!
