PAGINA IN COSTRUZIONE

“Ho viaggiato in Bhutan molte volte e molto a lungo in passato, è uno dei luoghi al mondo che più amo, il solo che abbia ancora il tantrismo come religione ufficiale.
Il contatto con i Lama (monaci di tradizione Vajrayana) e i Tulku (maestri illuminati reincarnati) mi ha sempre dato molto.  Selene Calloni Williams

Una grande opportunità per meditare con uno dei più famosi Rimpochhe, conosciuto con il nome di Gangtey Trulku (è una reincarnazione di un discepolo di Guru Rimpochhe) e per vedere il Punakha Tshechu Festival.

Il Punakha Tshechu Festival Tour viene celebrato nei pressi del gigantesco Punakha Dzong. il 'festival' del tshechu nasce per onorare Guru Rimpoche, un grande Yogin e mistico che ha introdotto il buddismo in Bhutan.  Il festival offre danze rituali in maschera diverse ogni giorno. La gente del posto si riunisce con spirito di festoso e profonda fede per assistere al festival.

Il Tshechu Festival è celebrato in tutto il paese in ogni monastero del Bhutan il decimo giorno di un mese del calendario lunare tibetano. Si tratta di uno dei più grandi festival del Bhutan, legato al lignaggio Drukpa della scuola Kagyu del buddismo tibetano.
