The Great Annual Tse Chu Ceremony

The annual Tse Chu ceremony where the main practice of the great Saddhana of the Lama Sangdu practice is accomplished was held from 30th March to 2nd April 2012. A full day of Cham (ritual lama dances) was held on the concluding day. Many dignitaries, guests and thousands of people from the surrounding area attended this auspicious event and received the immeasurable blessings of the Great Tse Chu Ceremony which depicts the eight manifestations of Guru Padmasambhava. These sacred and ritual dances have been performed, in an unbroken lineage, since the time of Terdag Lingpa in Mindrolling.
