BHUTAN FESTIVALS 2016

The Tshechu is a festival in honour of Padmasambhava. “One who was born from lotus flower” popularly known under the name of “Guru Rimpoche”, “the precious Teacher”. This Indian saint contributed enormously to the diffusion of Tantric Buddhism in the Himalayan regions of Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan around 800 A.D. He is the founder of the Nyingmapa, the “old school” of Lamaism which still has numerous followers. The biography of Guru Rimpoche is highlighted in 12 episodes on the model of the Buddha Sakyamuni‘s life. Each episode is commemorated substitute throughout the year on the 10th day of the month “the Tshechu” which has become the name of a very popular festival.
