For the first time in the country, PICSA is organizing a never seen before event and most probably a festival that may not happen for another decade. Peling Tshechu particularly in Wangdicholing palace is organized with genuine reasons.Without a doubt, Pema Lingpa is an important religious personality to be born in Bhutan and the Bhutanese worship him as a great saint and the spiritual heir of Guru Rimpoche.
Bumthang, his birth place and also where his fame as a tertoen began to spread is all the reason for PICSA to bring forth Peling traditions from all over the country to a homogenous platform coinciding with the birth anniversary of Kuenkhen Longchen Rabjam, the earlier incarnation of tertoen Pema Lingpa. This is no less than marking the birth anniversary of Pema Lingpa himself.This is very symbolic because the event is dedicated in commemorating the sixtieth birth anniversary of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo who is also a descendent of Pema Lingpa.Apart from the welfare of all the sentient beings, Peling Tshechu is conducted for His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo’s longevity and good health.Moreover, Wanduecholing palace, the seat of 1st and 2nd king is a historical abode and this festival is also to honor the immense contribution of their Majesties in paving way for peace and stability in our country.

THIMPHU TSHECHU (3rd-5th) October 2014.

One of the biggest festivals in the country is the Thimphu Tshechu. This festival is held in the capital city for three days beginning on 10th day of the 8th month of lunar calendar. This Tshechu is witnessed by thousands of people many of which travel from neighboring Dzongkhags (districts) to attend the festivities. The actual Tshechu is preceded by days and nights of prayer and rituals to invoke the gods.

When it was initiated by the 4th Desi, Gyalse Tenzin Rabgay in 1867 the Tshechu consisted of only a few dances being performed strictly by monks. These were the Zhana chham and the Zhana Nga chham (Dances of the 21 Black Hats), Durdag (Dance of the Lords of the Cremation Ground), and the Tungam chham (Dance of the Terrifying Deities).

The Thimphu Tshechu underwent a change in the 1950s, when the third King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, introduced numerous Boed chhams (mask dances performed by lay monks). These additions added colour and variation to the festival without compromising its spiritual significance. Mask dances like the Guru Tshengye (Eight Manifestations of Guru), Shaw Shachi (Dance of the Stags) are enjoyed because they are similar to stage-theater.

Equally important are the Atsaras, who are more than just mere clowns. The Atsaras are the dupthobs (acharyas), who provide protection. The dances and the jesting of the Atsaras are believed to entrance evil forces and prevent them from causing harm during Tshechus. Modern Atsaras also perform short skits to disseminate health and social awareness messages.

To farmers, the Tshechu is also seen as a break from farm life. It’s an occasion to celebrate, receive blessings and pray for health and happiness.
