Celebrating Trhungkar Tshechu marks Guru Rinpoche`s blessings upon Sikkim as a holy place on earth.Had Guru Rinpoche not blessed the soil of Sikkim,Denzong,what people of today`s Sikkim have in their lot,might not have been there. Its all but of Guru Rinpoche`s blessings to all no matter what faith do they profess.
Urgen Yulgi nub zang chhang; Pema gesar dang bo la;
Yam chang choe gi noi-dupne; Pema zhungne seshu dag;
Khordo khandro mang po khor; Khey ki je-su dab dup-ki;
Jhin-gi lob-gi se-su sor; Guru Pema shidhi Hum !
