Offering the Gift of Life
Ritual with Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche

The ritual takes place in any weather.

About the Ritual

At the Tshethar Ritual, animals threatened with death are offered the gift of life – in this case trout. During the Buddhist ceremony in the middle of nature, the white Lama Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche will recite special Mantras and Dharanis, which serve the life force of the liberated animals as well as the visitors’. The blessed fish are then released into their new life in the little river Würm.

Background and Motivation

In Tibetan, Tshethar means “giving freedom”. In the Buddhist tradition, offering sentient beings the gift of life in freedom is an act of generosity. It is said that by giving beings their life in freedom back, one’s own life force is also strengthened. Therefore, by helping others, one helps oneself.

Participation and purchase of fish

With registration for the Tshethar Ritual, you have the opportunity to purchase any number of fish and release them into freedom. The ritual is open for everyone interested of any background. It is also quite popular with children. Participation and free purchase will be donation-based. We ask you to purchase the fish ahead of the ritual (3 Euro per fish), which can be done online.

For organizational reasons, we would be pleased if you register in advance, but participation is also possible at short notice.

About the fish: Thanks to the good cooperation with the responsible authorities and the advice of local fish breeders, this year, too, we have ensured that the fish are transported in an appropriate manner. Since the changes in climate also have an impact on the local river ecosystem, we adjust the selection of the animals (species and size) annually to the current recommendations of local water and fish experts. To ensure that the small trout get used to their new home in the Würm as quickly as possible, the containers used for transport are enriched with fresh water from the Würm beforehand.

We are renewing our web presence. Soon the website of Long Yang e.V. will move completely to the website of Akasha Academy. Please feel free to have a look around: https://www.akasha-academy.org
