Drukpa Tshezhi (First Sermon of Lord Buddha)

Drupka Tseshi marks the day on which Lord Buddha gave his first teaching on Four Noble Truths to his first five disciples at Sarnath and therefore turning the wheel of Dharma. The festival is held on the 4th day of the 6th month of the Buddhist lunar calendar and the dates can vary between each region. Dates in Tibet or Bhutan for Drukpa Tsechi may be different from one in Sikkim or Darjeeling. In Gangtok, Drupka Tsheshi is marked by prayers at the Deer Park. In Muguthang in extreme North Sikkim, the festival is celebrated by holding a Yak race. Through-out Darjeeling and Sikkim, the temples and monasteries hold prayers and religious cermonies to mark the occasion. If you happen to visit this region during Dupka Tsechi, you will be able to witness these celebrations or attend prayers.
