Tiji Festival
PDF File Size: 5 MB | Download   
The beating of drums and singing fill the air as the ancient thangka (religous scroll painting) of Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhism's Lotus-born Saint) is brought from the Palace of Lo Manthang into the square. The people of Lo (Upper Mustang)eagerly await its arrival. Through clouds of incense, and with great clamor and anticipation, the monks place the thangka on display by rolling it down a huge wall.
This is the beginning of Tenpa Chirim, the most important festival of Lo, which is celebrated by the people of Lo Tso Dhun (the seven provinces of Upper Mustang). The term 'Tenpa Chirim', literally means "the hope that the Buddha's Dharma will prevail in all places and among all people of the world". The festival is popularly known as 'Tiji", which is a mispronunciation of the word "Tenchi", which itself is the short form for Tenpa Chirim.
