Sacred Festivals of Bhutan - Kurjey Tshechu
Highlights: Kurjey Tsechu Festival, Bumthang valley, Phobjikha valley, Big Buddha, Punakha Dzong
The “the Sacred Festivals of Bhutan” program is part of series that centers around festivals that happen during different part of a year in different regions of Bhutan. This particular one is around ‘Kurjey Tshechu’.
The ancient festivals of Bhutan called the ‘tshechus‘ (meaning the ‘tenth day’) are considered sacred since they not only celebrate the life of Guru Rimpoche (known to have appeared on a tenth day of lunar calendar), but also the advent of Buddhist faith in Bhutan and its various milestones.
These festivals conducted and performed by the monks, are also a medium that is used to pass spiritual messages to laity through mask dances or ‘Cham‘ which is best described as ‘mystical plays’
The sacred festival in Kurjey, Bumthang – central Bhutan is in the place that Guru Rinpoche visited first and right around the cave that he meditated in, leaving behind ‘kurjey’ – ‘body print’ on the rocks! . For more details, contact us or our partners in your country!
