Offering the Gift of Life
Ritual with Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche
In Tibetan Tshethar means “giving freedom” and is formed by the syllables “Tshe” – life and “Thar” – liberation. In the Buddhist Mahayana tradition, offering sentient beings the gift of life in freedom is an act of generosity. This requires compassion and wisdom.
It is said that when you give beings / animals back their life in freedom, your own life force is also strengthened. By helping others, one helps oneself. With this motivation, animals threatened with death – in this case brown trout – are bought from local fish farmers and released into freedom.
Also this year the Tshethar Ritual will take place in the beautiful surrounding of the Gautinger Schlosspark. During the ceremony Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche will recite special Mantras and Dharanis, which serve the life force of the liberated animals. Through the power of the ceremony, the brown trout receive the blessing for their new life in freedom. These recitations also have a vitalizing effect on visitors, especially those who contribute to the liberation.
We invite you to participate with the whole family in a very special Buddhist puja in the midst of nature and experience the benefits of this ancient ritual. The blessed fish are then released into their new life in the little river Würm. Guests have the opportunity to participate actively by purchasing a desired number of fish.
The purchase is possible in advance or directly on site. The fish are bred locally and transported species-appropriate. If you are unable to attend the ritual in person, we will be happy to release the fish for you.
Participation is only possible with registration and the number of places is limited. You will receive further information about the ritual and the purchase with the registration via the registration form.
