Special Events for Wheel Turning Day
Next Thursday, July 27th, is the holy day of the Buddha's first teaching.
Khensur Rinpoche was keen to do something special to mark the day, so he has decided to agree to a student's request and give the transmission of the Confession of Transgressions, known as 35 Buddhas, and an introduction to how to do the practice. He has also decided to give the Bodhisattva vows, along with a brief explanation.
So there will be two teaching sessions on that day; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You can attend one or both sessions.
Rinpoche hasn't specifically mentioned a daily practice commitment for the 35 Buddhas practice, but you should be ready to get one, given that the point of receiving the transmission and explanation is in order to be able to do the practice!
Also, both when receiving the transmission and again when taking the Bodhisattva vows, you are required to take the presiding master as your guru, so I encourage you to check before you decide.
The details of these special events are:
What: Transmission of the Confession of Transgressions and Bodhisattva Vows
When: 10am (Confession of Transgressions);
2pm (Bodhisattva Vows); Thursday 27 July, 2017
