Day of Miracles (Chötrul Düchen)
February 27 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
About the Event
Day of Miracles is one of the four great Buddhist Holy Days commemorating major events in the Buddha’s life. It marks the culmination of a 15-day festival known as Monlam, recalling the Buddha’s power as exhibited through the miracles he demonstrated during that period to engender devotion among his followers.
Ordinarily, we would celebrate Day of Miracles at Jamyang Buddhist Centre, but of course this year will have to be different. We won’t be able to come together physically, but we will do the best we can virtually, making the most of this time with a programme of pujas and practices.
- 07:00 – 08:00 | Taking Mahayana Precepts with Venerable Barbara
- 09:00 – 10:00 | Shakyamuni Buddha Puja with Venerable Barbara
- 15:00 – 16:30 | Guru Puja with Steff Hill
The period between Losar and Day of Miracles is considered particularly auspicious for the accumulation of merit, and so we invite you to recite scriptures with us and submit the number of recitations that you complete. We will then dedicate the merit to FPMT’s Spiritual Director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The texts that we will be reciting include:
- Golden Light Sutra
- Golden Light Sutra (just the chapter on Confession, or Chapter 4)
- Vajra Cutter Sutra
- Chanting the Names of Manjushri
- Heart Sutra
If you would like to participate, please choose which text(s) you want to recite and let us know how many recitations you have completed by emailing [email protected] by midnight on 27th February (Day of Miracles).
