    Jul 10Full Moon in the Chinese Sixth Lunar MonthAsalha Puja or Dhamma Day.





    This commemorates the Buddha's first discourse, the Dhamma-Cakka-Pavattana Sutta (the Discourse on the Turning of the Wheel of Truth) in Sarnath (Isipatana, Benares) - the Deer Park , which he gave to the group of five monks with whom he had practised in the forest for many years. Upon hearing this discourse, one of the monks -- Ven. Kondañña -- gained his first glimpse of Nibbana, thus giving birth to the Noble Sangha. The annual rains retreat (vassa) commences the following day.

    Note: At the end of this first sermon, the Venerable Kondañña became a Sotapanna (a person at the first stage of enlightenment) and then, according to the Commentaries, for example, the Commentary on Vinaya, the other four disciples became Sotapannas, one on each of the four following days. On the first day after the full-moon day in July, the monk Vappa became a Sotapanna; on the second day, Bhaddiya; on the third day, Mahanama; and on the fourth day, Assaji. After they became Sotapannas, they all asked Buddha for ordination. Buddha ordained each of them by calling to them, "Come monks." On the fifth day after the full-moon day, the Buddha assembled them and preached to them this discourse Anatta-lakkhana Sutta. -The Discourse on the Not-self Characteristic (no-soul or anatta)
    ( Note: Try this site which is my favourite explaination for :- NO INNER CORE - ANATTA . By Sayadaw U Silananda )


    The Dhamek ( Dhammacakka ) Stupa marks the exact spot where the Buddha delivered His first Discourse Dhamma-Cakka-Pavattana Sutta at Sarnath (Isipatana, Benares) - the Deer Park. Photograph was taken from http://www.geocities.com/Athens/9449/holysite.htm

    Impermanent are all conditioned things
    Their nature is to rise and pass away.
    When they have risen, then again they cease;
    Happiness lies in the Tranquillizing of them.

    And thus have you long undergone suffering,
    undergone torment, undergone misfortune
    and filled the grave yards full;
    verily, long enough to turn away
    And free yourself from the all

    ~ Majjhima Nikaya ~

    may this life be a blessing and a source of happiness to all beings."
