Asalha Pudja 2008

Asalha Puja is an annual ceremony to pay homage to the Buddha on the full moon day of the 8th lunar month (approximately July). It commemorates the Buddha's first teaching: the turning of the wheel of the Dhamma (Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta) to the five ascetics at the Deer Park (Sarnath) near Benares city, India. It also commemorates the attainment of the first level of enlightenment (Sotapanna) by one of the five ascetics, Kondanna. This year, we observed the day on July 20th, 2008.

The "Wake up to your Life” (or WUTYL, pronounced woo til) group of Columbus, Ohio is a small, nonsectarian Buddhist group that meets weekly to meditate and to study the Buddhist teachings of Ken McLeod. Our approach is practical. We seek to apply Buddhist tools to our daily lives so that we may become increasingly open to the mystery of the present moment. We view regular meditation practice as one key element to becoming more fully awake and alive. (source
