Tiji Festival is purification ritual that takes place at the beginning of every harvest season. The history of Tiji Festival goes many centuries back, but is embellished by myths and legends rather than recorded facts. The word Tiji originates from the word “Ten Che” which means “hope of Buddhism prevailing in the world for peace” and basically celebrates the triumph of God over demon. The 3 days ritual is celebrated by various kinds of dancing ceremonies in order to chase the devil away. It stands on the mythological story of Lo Manthang. Many centuries back a boy named Dorje Jono fights against his demonic father who creates havoc in the Mustang by creating water shortage, a very scarce resource in the region. Ultimately Jono defeats the demon and banishes him away from the arid land.
