An Historical First: Nuns Perform in Tse Chu Lama Dance

Nuns from Thrangu Tara Abbey and Palchen Choling perform in the Tse Chu Lama Dance, featuring Eight Goddesses of Gratitude making offerings to Guru Rinpoche.

Inside the mask of Guru Rinpoche on stage, is the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje. His eyes appear at the level of the Guru's skull-cup as he supports the weight of the hollowed image on his shoulders while seated in a golden chair. No one can see this, but in his hands he is holding a precious statue of Guru Rinpoche revealed by the great terton Jatsön Nyingpo.

The Tsechu lama dance took place on Jan 10, 2014, Bodh Gaya, India, as part of the special program of the 31st Kagyu Monlam.
