Hemis Festival (Hemis Tseshu) on 29 and 30 June 2012
The Hemis festival is dedicated to Lord Padmasambhava (Guru Rimpoche).
He is believed to have been born on the 10th day of the fifth month of the
Monkey year as predicted by the Buddha Shakyamuni.
It is also believed that his life mission was, and remains, to improve
the spiritual condition of all living beings.
And so on this day, Hemis observes a major extravaganza in his memory.
The observance of these sacred rituals is believed to give spiritual strength
and good health.
The Hemis festival takes place in the rectangular courtyard in front of the
main door of the monastery.
The most esoteric of festivities are the mystic mask dances.
The Mask Dances of Ladakh are referred collectively as Chams Performance.
Chams performance is essentially a part of Tantric tradition, performed only
in those gompas which follow the Tantric Vajrayana teachings and the monks
perform tantric worship.
