Tshechu are religious festival honoring Guru Rimpoche, the patron saint who brought Buddhism in Bhutan in the 8th century. He is regarded as the founder of the Nyingmapa sect of Buddhism, the "oldest school" of Lamaism which is still followed very popularly. His biography is highlighted by 12 episodes of the model of the Buddha Shakyamuni’s life. Each episode is commemorated on the “Tshe Chu” meaning on the 10th day of the Bhutanese calendar. The dances are performed by monks followed by a mix of laymen. Religion is a part of life for a Bhutanese and by attending a Tsechu, people believe, one gains merits. It is also an annual social get-together event where people, dressed in their finest costumes come together to rejoice.
