Vesak is the most important day celebrated by Buddhists around the world. It commemorates the life of Shakyamuni Buddha - the Fully Awakened One - and his unconditional love for all beings.
To commemorate Buddha’s LOVE, we hope that we can extend LOVE and bring hope and peace to all beings through this Vesak Prayer Festival, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic situation .
May the collective loving energy we harness through this Vesak Prayer Festival heal all negativities and suffering and bring hope and peace for all beings.
SPREAD LOVE NOT VIRUS
A DIFFERENT VESAK THIS YEAR
As we reach a critical point in the battle against COVID-19, we need to play our part in the fight. Everyone is strongly encouraged to stay safe and stay home, but this does not mean that we cannot stay active and engaged. With the COVID-19 Pandemic, let’s Spread Love to all (and not virus ya?). Watch this space for the latest Vesak Day updates coming your way! Collect your exclusive and special Vesak Day Gift from Thekchen Choling here!
However, with the help of technology, social distancing seems less distant in this era. Through the touch of a button on our phone or laptop, we could instantly connect with anyone throughout the world.
This year, Thekchen Choling celebrates Vesak 2020 with everyone in a very special way! Though we will not be able to celebrate Vesak the same way as the previous years, we can celebrate Vesak with YOU at home!
We have created an online community platform for everyone - all over the world - to engage and connect with us. So, regardless of where you are, let us come together online and connect through Buddha’s LOVE to pray and extend this loving energy to heal the world.
My family of four has been coming here to soak in the festivities for the past 10 years, but the main purpose we are here today is to get blessings for our three-month-old toy poodle, the newest member of our family.

OUR PREVIOUS VESAK
NAMGYALMA RETREAT 2019
It is said in Sutra , the practice of Namgyalma was taught by Buddha Shakyamuni, and this practice is known to give good health, long life and protection against untimely death. The Namgyalma Retreat will be conducted from 3th May to 16th May, and we dedicated the merit of the practice to the long and healthy life of all our spiritual teachers.
NAMGYALMA FIRE PUJA 2019
The practice of Namgyalma is a very powerful practice to purify obstacles and negative karma from countless lives, preventing unfavourable rebirth, liberating even someone who has commited the five uninterrupted negative karma and from the lowest, inexhaustible hot hells. The rare Namgyalma Fire Puja was auspiciously conducted on 17th May as a completion to the Namgyalma Retreat.
GURU BUMTSOG PUJA 2019
Thekchen Choling is very fortunate to have the Monlam prayers led by H.E. Kyabje Jhado Rinpoche, Abbot Emeritus of Namgyal Monastery, Dharamsala India. A Guru Bumtsog Puja will be offered by the advice of Jhado Rinpoche on 14th May, led by Jhado Rinpoche, Singha Rinpoche and disciples of Thekchen Choling. We pray for Rinpoche long & stable life, and hope sincerely that Rinpoche will frequently come home to Thekchen Choling.
