Wheel Turning Days

There are four days of the Tibetan lunar calendar considered especially auspicious, when extensive prayers are made. They are: the Day of Miracles, two weeks after the Tibetan New Year, Saka Dawa on the 15th of the 4th month, commemorating Shakyamuni Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and parinirvana, the First Turning of the Dharma Wheel on the 4th of the 6th month and the Buddha’s Descent from Heaven on the 15th of the 9th month.
