Kuenzangdrak Goemba, is one of the oldest monasteries of Pedling tradition built by Terton Pedma Lingpa in 15th century. Pedling teaching is considered as nye jued terma – revealed from treasures hidden by Guru Rinmpoche and Khandro Yeshey Tshogyal and are transmitted directly from Guru Rinmpoche to Pedma Lingpa and then to his succeeding followers; without loss of essence and blessings. Thus, Pedling teachings are regarded very sacred and extremely powerful for the followers to attain rapid enlightenment.
Kuenzangdrak Goemba in Tang, Bumthang is around 2 hours trek from the road point above the valley of tang Baypzur. Kuenzangdrak has three main monasteries, of which the oldest was built by Terton Pedma Lingpa himself while the other two were built by Khandrom and his heart son Thuksey Dawa Gyeltshen.
Khandrom lhakhang virtually stands on a vertical cliff, said to have started by Khandromas. A separate plank is laid over the wall which was constructed by khandroms. The other parts of the lhakhang is said to have been helped by Chechung sungma which actually is not possible by humans.
One of the holiest relics is a statue of Pema Lingpa which was made by himself. Among many, some important relics which are displaced for public veneration only once every year include his namza, uzha, shablam, etc. There are two chakhors (walking sticks of Guru Rimpoche and Thuksey Dawa Gyeltshen) in the form of two live sandalwoods implanted on the cliffs. There is also tshepaney drupchu and Guru drupchu behind the main monastery including many holy imprints on the rock cliffs.
Through my various religious discourses I learnt that we have to visit the 4 main "Dras"or cliffs (Thowadrak, kuenzangdrak, Shubdrak and Chhudrak) in our life time. Last time it was Thowadrak for me, this time it was Kuenzangdrak, if I live to tell the story next year, it will be either if the two remaining draks. #pedling#tertonpedmalingpa#gururimpoche#kuenzangdrak#thowadrak#tang#bumthang#bhutan
Trying to reconnect my happiness with mother nature. When I see this little bird in such clean unspoiled ecosystems, I feel good. Their existence is truely a symbol of rich biodiversity, and co-existence we share everyday. Their existence is also a proof for clean and pristine nature we have maintained so far and there is a hope for better future.
From @djemographic - Leap of Cham
Tibetan rites, teachings of Buddhism and local legends are deeply rooted in Bhutanese culture.
The Tsechu mask dance is a major element of bhutanese/tibetan culture, which yearly attracts many visitors, locals and foreigners. Known for the vibrant, colorful costumes worn during the festival, the dance photographed is called Drametse Nga Cham, where men in colorful costumes one by one enter the stage and then take a leap.
The dance follows the rhythm of the music played by buddhist monks. This photo was taken at the Tshechu festival in the Bhumthang valley in one of the dzongs.

Besides the stunning natural scenery, the enduring image of the country for most visitors is the strong sense of culture and tradition that binds the kingdom and clearly distinguishes it from its larger neighbours. Bhutan is the only Vajrayana Buddhist nation in the world, and the profound teachings of this tradition remain well preserved and exert a strong influence in all aspects of life. Due to its pristine environment and harmonious society, the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan has been called "The Last Shangrila."
Bhutan officially the Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked country in South Asia. Located in the Eastern Himalayas, it is bordered by Tibet Autonomous Region of China in the north, the Sikkim state of India and the Chumbi Valley of Tibet in the west, the Arunachal Pradesh state of India in the east, and the states of Assam and West Bengal in the south.
