Dharmachakra Day ~ an occasion for special Celebrations
June 4th 2020
Today we celebrate Buddha’s first turning of the Wheel of Dharma (Dharmachakra), when Buddha gave the very first Dharma teachings in this world.
Through this historic, auspicious deed, countless beings in this world now have the opportunity to practice completely reliable methods that lead to true, lasting happiness. Thank you Buddha for your inconceivable kindness to the people of this world.
We also celebrate the birthday of our precious Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
Venerable Geshe-la, through your immeasurable kindness, dedication and effort in spreading the pure teachings of Buddha throughout the world, countless people of this modern age have the opportunity to meet with and engage in Buddha’s teachings, and thus have the possibility of attaining all the spiritual realizations that lead to full enlightenment.
You have revealed all the paths of Kadam Dharma, giving everyone without discrimination the opportunity to complete the path to enlightenment easily and swiftly.
Venerable Geshe-la, we dedicate all our merit to your continued long life, good health and success in all your activities.
By taking your teachings to heart may each we help to fulfil your extraordinary, compassionate vision of bringing pure Kadam Dharma to every country in the world, and in this way bestowing the perfect gift of lasting peace on the whole world.
May the bonds of love between you and your faithful disciples remain for all time, and may you always appear in our hearts and in our lives.
