On the auspicious occasion of Guru Rinpoche Thrunkar Tshechu, the Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim Shri Shriniwas Patil and the First Lady Smt Rajanidevi Patil extend warm greetings and best wishes to the people of Sikkim.

Hon’ble Governor said, “Guru Thrunkar Tshechu is celebrated as the birth anniversary of our patron saint Guru Padmasambhava. We reverentially call him Guru Rimpoche, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism who introduced it in our tiny Himalayan State during Eighth Century AD. Blessed with the name Bayul Dremojong by Guru Padmasambhava, literally meaning hidden valley of rice, Sikkim is said to be the abode of peace and happiness ever since. Guru Rimpoche’s benign presence forms the integral part of Sikkimese culture and ethos and is worshipped by Sikkimese of all faiths.

On this pious day, let us pay homage to Guru Rimpoche and seek his eternal blessings as we strive to transform our society into spiritually enlightened one. Let us all pray together for peace and happiness of all.”

PRO to Governor
