Mustang Tiji Festival

The monks performed colourful musk dance, rites and ceremonies during the festival to dispel evils and demons from the former kingdom.

The Tiji is most well known festival in Lo-manthang. The three-day ritual known as “the chasing of the Demons”, the myth tells of a deity named Dorje Jono who must battle against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction. The demon father wreaked havoc on Mustang by bringing a shortage of water (a highly precious resource in this very dry land) and causing many resulting disasters from famine including animal loss. Dorje Jono eventually beats the demon and banishes him from the land. After that it became a main festival in Mustang. The country at that time was flourishing, food was plentiful, and Buddhist religion was practiced and followed by the Royal family as well as the local people. Large monasteries were built and great teachers were born. Evidence of this golden age of religion and prosperity can still be seen in most villages in the form of monasteries, dzongs, large houses and private chapels. The monks performed colourful musk dance, rites and ceremonies during the festival to dispel evils and demons from the former kingdom. The monks perform a dance called “Tsachham” on first day and “Ngachham” on the second day. It also comes to symbolize the hope and strength of the people. This place is known as Sa Kawo or the “White Land”, and exists to this very day. Following Ngachen Ngawang Kunga Sonam’s visit to Lo-manthang the festival regained its popularity and prior glory.
