About Buddha's First Sermon
Buddha’s First Sermon Day is a Buddhist festival, commemorating the anniversary of the start of Buddha's teaching - his first sermon known as “The Wheel of Truth” or "turning of the wheel of the Dharma" after his enlightenment. It has some other names like Asalha Puja, Beginning of Vassa or Asala, Theravada, Dhama Sakya Day, Dhamma Day. Asalha Puja falls on the full moon day of the 8th lunar month which is approximately on July in the modern Gregorian calendar. Buddha taught his first sermon in a deer park in Sarnath which is four miles from the city of Benares. It is taught that the Buddha has taught his doctrine or dharma by turning the wheel on his right hand with his left hand. He figuratively set the doctrine in motion and dispersed Buddhism throughout the world.
