Honoring Buddha’s First Teaching


Today we honor and remember Buddha’s First Teaching – the first turning of the Dharma. It is said that all actions are magnified 10,000,000 times. Practice is highly encouraged, along with sponsoring Dharma activities.


Honoring the Enlightenment of Kuan Yin Today

Today is the Anniversary of the Enlightenment of Kuan Yin.

“Namo Kuan Shi Yin Pusa”

It is also the anniversary of Venerable KongHu Shi’s (Ven. Ani Drubgyudma) ordination day as a nun in 1999 according to the lunar calendar.

Here is a glimpse of that special day of remembrance.
