Happy Chokhor Duchen

Chokhor is Tibetan for Wheel of Dharma. Teaching Dharma is known as turning the Wheel of Dharma. This day is a celebration of the anniversary of  Shakyamuni Buddha (the historical Buddha)  beginning to Turn of the Wheel of Dharma. It is on a different day each year on the Gregorian calender that is used in the west and in the business world because it is a solar callender and the Buddhist Holi days are marked by a lunar calender.
