Chokhor Duchen

Chokhor Duchen commemorates the Buddha's first sermon and the teaching of the Four Noble Truths. In Buddhism this event is known as the ‘turning of the wheel of dharma’. Theravadin Buddhists remember this event on Dhamma Day, also known as Asalha Puja, in reference to the month in which it occurs.

Chokhor means prayer wheel.
