Every year at the Root Institute in Bodhgaya they create one of my favorite types of offerings to the triple gem. On July 20th is a special day where the merit we create is multiplied by 100, 000.
It is on the same day that Shakyamuni Buddha gave his first sermon which we call the “First Turning of the Dharma Wheel” which happens to be on July 20th of this year.
From the flyer that I received in email:
