CHOKHOR DUCHEN
 The First Turning of The Wheel
MONDAY,  AUGUST 1, 2022

Chokhor Duchen commemorates the Buddha’s first sermon and the teaching of the Four Noble Truths given at the site of the stupa.   The Buddha's first sermon is called the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta, meaning  "setting the wheel of dharma in motion."
 
THE FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS 
The Truth Of Suffering
The Truth Of Origin of Suffering
The Truth Of Cessation of Suffering
The Truth of Path to Cessation of Suffering

 
The Dhamehk Stupa in Sarnath India, was erected by the Great King Ashoka.  Emperor Ashoka (273-232 B.C.) was a staunch follower of Buddhism and visited Sarnath and laid the foundation of the Buddhist Sangha here. The Ashoka Pillar bears testimony to his visit.
 
The First Noble Truth - The Truth of Suffering has four subdivisions:
1. Impermanence 2. Suffering 3. Emptiness 4. Selflessness

Meditation on the impermanence of the body is an excellent way to commemorate when Buddha taught the Four Noble Truths.
