Anniversary of Buddha's first teaching / turning the Wheel of Dharma

Today marks the anniversary of Buddha’s first teaching or turning the wheel of Dharma in this world. 

The date is June 4 in the lunar or Tibetan calendar, as recorded by Tibetan text. This is based on calculation of 49 days after gaining enlightenment, the Buddha taught his 5 former companions of the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta.
