"Pema Lingpa day"

 

Every year, 3rd day of first lunar month is celebrated as pema Lingpa day coinciding with his death anniversary. It is more than a celebration of his death anniversary because it is a day where Bhutanese pay tribute to its own country man who has great influence in the Bhutanese history. Terchen Pema Lingpa was born to  Yap Dondrup zangpo and Yum Pema Dolma at Baribrang,Tang Bumthang.  It believed that he was born with many miraculous sign and he was extraordinary even as a child  that could learnt reading, writing, iron works and carpentry even without receiving formal instruction.

It is believed that Guru Padmasambhava appeared in pemalingpa’s vision at holy site of Yige Drukma, blessed him and placed in his hands an inventory of one hundred and eight major termas to be revealed. Of all, one well-known story of pema lingpa which is about burning Lake is still popular place visited by many people. As per oral tradition, it is believed that pema Lingpa was criticized and on looked by people when they heard about his vision. So it was said that he entered into lake with burning butter lamp in his hand. He told onlookers that if he was false spirit his butter would extinguished as he disappear into the bottom of lake. On that incident, people were shocked and started to honor him as he emerge from water with statue and treasure casket while on other hand butter lamp still burning.

Pema Lingpa and his descendent played crucial role in shaping Bhutan into what we see today. One important and notable descendent includes our wangchuk dynasty. Therefore we should feel proud and happy to celebrate pema Lingpa day.

Pema Lingpa day was founded and proposed to  Royal government of Bhutan by notable story teller, writer, director Pawo chonying Dorji from Bhutan to celebrate its own Bhutanese hero.

Thank you.

Story of Mr. Tandin wangchuk who weaves cloth for living.

  Have you seen a man weaving cloth in your community?   Well, In Bhutan, we hardly see a man weaving and I agree that most of you have not seen it. Or may I know your opinion on it?   So, today I am going to share a story of a man who found weaving as the most suitable livelihood asset. As a young boy, he used to worry a lot about his life. He used to think of every alternative that would help him to sustain his life until one day when he realized himself growing interesting in weaving. And he is 38-year-old Tandin wangchuk from Tashigang.   He was 3rd born in his family of eight siblings and he had to sacrifice his school days for younger ones. Therefore as a young boy, he learned weaving with utmost interest. It is amazing to know that he used to support his brothers with the little amount he earned by weaving. Isn’t that awesome? Well, he used to weave all types of Traditional Bhutanese dresses including "Kishuthar",  "dwhor" and "karchang" for sale. H

Blogging and its opportunity to make money. Story of my Adsense partnership approval success.

  A Year ago, I started blogging without having much idea about it. I was introduced to blogging by Mr. Nidup Jamtsho, a very good friend of mine and also an enthusiastic blogger (nidupjamtsho.com) and YouTuber ( Mr. Nidup). We talked about  lot of opportunities, an opportunity to earn. Our major conversation used to be about online earning. Bitcoin mining, SFI, Pi mining, YouTubing, and blogging used to be our hot conversation. I would like to confess that I have tried all of them. However, none was successful as I wish but I was never tired of doing it. Frankly, it was difficult for me to hide the feeling of quitting from myself. I used to hide the feeling of quitting and used to involve in money talk with friends to inspire myself. I used to tell my friends, classmate, and family about blogging and the opportunity. I tried blogging from last year and applied three times for AdSense partnership approval. I have to wait for two weeks to get a reply mail from AdSense Company and gett

Journey of talented Nima Wangdi aka chutur15 to Bhutan National Team

  As young as 5 years old kid, he was into football and could not pay much attention to his studies. He would find himself in the football ground along with his friends as fast as a school over bell. At a very young age, he was interested in football and would dream to be a National player of our country. And today I would like to share the journey of Mr. Nima Wangdi aka Chutur15 to the squad of a national football team. He was playing as a right defender until today and from this year he is playing as a defensive midfielder while he funnily shares that position is not an issue for him. 22 years–old Nima is from Samtse and his football journey has started from Samtse middle school when coach Ugyen started training all the kids who are interested in football. He played several matches along with his friends to keep his talents alive. It was in 2011 when he went to Gelephu for National football team selection (under 14) and his dream come true. One day he was called by the vice-principal
