Venue: First day of rehearsal - Karma and Joseph not present so Singye began to shoot downstairs in the inner courtyard.
Biographical/historical: Tamzhing Phala Choethpa means the Tamzhing Festival of the Boar or Pig. Five kms drive from the Jakar town lies the Tamshing Lungrub Chholing which means the Temple of the Good message. In 1501 Pema Lingpa established it and now is the most important Nyingma goemba in the Kingdom. It is believed that Pema Lingpa had built the goemba with the assistance from Khandroma (female celestial deities/angels). Inside there are original images painted by Pema Lingpa. On the east side of the inner court lies a small lhakhang called as Dunkur Lhakhang. The lhakhang has an unusual design with the main chapel in the center of the assemble hall, almost like a separate building. In the front lies three thrones for the three incarnations (body, mind & speech) of Terton Pema Lingpa.
Biographical/historical: Tamzhing Phala Choethpa is held for three days each year from the 10-12th day of 8th Bhutanese month. A Chamjug or rehearsal day is held on the 9th day of the Lunar Month.
Content: Tamzhing Phala Choethpa Festival (Sept. 12, 2005: Day One Rehearsal Day): Zam - Purification Dance with no distinguishing mask ; Phag Cham: Dance of the Boar ; Peling Jug Ging (Monks): Dance of the Ging with Batons ; Peling Ngacham: Peling Drum Dance (Laymen) ; Peling Nga Ging: Dance of the Ging with Drums (Monks).
