With Lopön Pieter Oosthuizen
February 24, 2024
Chötrul Düchen is known as the Day of Miracles. It commemorates the fifteen days in the Tibetan lunar calendar during which Buddha Shakyamuni performed astonishing miracles subduing ascetic skeptics and strengthening the faith of those following him on the path. During Chötrul Düchen, it is believed that the effects of both positive and negative actions are multiplied ten million times.
