Today is the 15th day of the 10th month in Bhutanese calender. This is the time I and my sons come from to Shingkhar to attend our annual five day ritual called Shingkhar Rabney. But fortunately or unfortunately, this year, it has been postponed to some other date. But never the less, me and my family are very eager to join folks of Shingkhar for the Rabney. I am so so eager to see the first Linga fire in full electrified courtyard of Shingkhar Lhakhang. Not only that, I also wanted to see people of all age prolonging their changkor till the dawn. If possible I am planning to join them too and prolong it till the dusk of next day. Apart from that, I am also equally excited to entertain my brothers and sisters thoroughly.
This is the first time I am seeing Lunar eclipse on this very night. I suppose Meme Ragula is not very pleased with the postponement of Rabney, Because we the Shingkhapas (and many others in Bhutan) associate lunar eclipse to mythical power of Meme Ragula, known also as Zaa. We consider this day as a very sacred day because it is not only Tse Chenga But Karma Mindu, Stuseng-Takseng and Acho Lhala are going to meet at the same spot in the sky at midnight.
