Holy Day of Miracles – Chötrul Düchen – Tue 19 Feb 2019
The Fifteen Days of Miracles — from the first day of the Tibetan new year (Losar on 5 Feb 2019) until the fifteenth, Chötrul Düchen (also called Day of Miracles on 19 Feb 2019) — commemorate the special time when Guru Shakyamuni Buddha showed miraculous powers in order to subdue the six Tirthika, who lacked faith in him, and to inspire more faith in his followers. All fifteen days are merit-multiplying days, when the merit of virtuous actions performed on these days is multiplied by 100 million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche from the vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic.

- 6.30am Precepts given by Geshe Sonam (eight vows taken for 24 hours with an attitude to benefit others)
- 12noon Set up tables and bowls and purification of bowls
- 1pm Filling of extensive water bowls.
- 7.30pm Light Offering followed by a Shakyamuni Buddha Puja
