Chokhor Duchen

The first turning of the Wheel of Dharma.

For seven weeks after his enlightenment, Buddha did not teach. Finally, encouragement by Indra and Brahma, he turned the Wheel of Dharma for the first time, at Sarnath, teaching the Four Noble Truths. On this day the effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied ten million times.
