Pel­ing Tsechu to start from to­day

Bhutan Times - - Home - Pema Choki

For the first time in the coun­try, Peo­ple’s Ini­tia­tive to Cel­e­brat­ing the Six­ti­eth An­niver­sary PICSA) is or­ga­niz­ing a never seen be­fore event and most prob­a­bly a fes­ti­val that may not hap­pen for an­other decade from to­day. 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 com­mem­o­rat- ing 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.

A clean­ing cam­paign themed: A Trib­ute to K4 , Lets adopt R4” ini­ti­ated by the peo­ple of Bumthang was un­der­taken on the 26th of March , 2015 as a part of the Pel­ing Tshechu.
