Happy Chotrul Duchen!


This month Nalandabodhi engages in joyful celebration of Chotrul Duchen, the second Buddhist holiday that occurs in what is known as the “month of miracles.”

Chotrul Duchen celebrates Buddha Shakyamuni’s display of 15 days of miracles. It is said that the Buddha displayed a different miracle each day to spur devotion and to increase the merit of his current and future disciples. As students of Buddhism in the 21st century, Chotrul Duchen gives us a joyful opportunity to appreciate Buddha Shakyamuni. It is a celebration of wisdom and kindness beyond measure.
