Chotrul Duchen, the ‘Festival of Miracles’
is one of the four festivals in the year commemorating
the most significant events in the life of the Buddha.
Chotrul Duchen occurs on the full moon (the fifteenth day)
of the first Tibetan month. The first fifteen days of the Tibetan New Year celebrate the fifteen days on which, in order to increase the merit and the devotion of future disciples, Buddha Shakyamuni displayed a different miracle.
Chotrul Duchen, like the other festivals (Saga Dawa Duchen, Chokhor Duchen, and Lhabab Duchen), is a “ten million multiplier” day,
when all positive and negative actions are multiplied 10 million times.
It is therefore a very good day to engage in positive activities and practice.
lighting extra candles is of great benefit.
May you have many positive actions and blessings!
