Druk Yul, the “Thundering Dragon Country”, is a marvelous succession of majestic fortress-like dzongs and monasteries, many of which act as a stage for spectacular tsechus (dance festivals) attended by an almost medieval-looking audience. In our case you’ll be absorbed in the Trongsa Tshechu, dedicated to Padmasambhava (lit. “Lotus-Born”), also known as Guru Rimpoche, an 8th-century Buddhist master from the Indian subcontinent, a precious yogi and saint who is credited with having introduced Tantric Buddhism throughout the Himalayas. The culmination of festival constitutes the unfolding of a huge cloth thanka, depicting Padmasambhava and imagery from Buddhist pantheon. Then you’ll see deep forests of Rhododendrons and magnolia, old monasteries and temples.
And in all this, your knowledge of Buddhist philosophy will be increased by simple daily late afternoon Teachings on different topics in order to permit you to have a precious insight of Buddhism and meditation wisdom pills. A real holiday of culture and spirituality!
