Tse-Chu Dance

Tse-Chu, also known as Rumtek Chaams, is a religious dance celebrated at the Rumtek Dharma Chakra Center. It is performed on the 10th day of the 5th month in the Tibetan calendar, which falls either in May or June. The chaam presents the eight manifestations of Padmasambhava, the lotus-born, who was responsible for the growth of Buddhism in Tibet. The dance also depicts the events from the life of Guru Rimpoche and his fight against the forces of evil.
