Tiji Festival Trek is a religious festival celebrated usually in May to overcome any obstacles in a year ahead and for the well being throughout the year. On the occasion of this worldly popular festival people from all around the world come here to take part in the tiji festival. You can combine your trip with Tiji Festival Trekking. Buddhist monks perform breathtaking dance with their colorful costumes. This dance symbolizes battle against negativity and gives the message of positivism. 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 to animal loss. Dorje Jono eventually beats the demon and banishes him from the land. Tiji is a celebration and reaffirmation of this myth and throughout the festival the various scenes of the myth will be enacted. It is of course timed to coincide with the end of the dry winter/spring season and will usher in the wetter monsoon season.
Teji festival will be celebrate 19 May, 20 May and 21 May 2020 in Upper Mustang. The original name of this ritual dance is Tenpa Chirim which means benefit of Buddha’s teaching and all sentient beings. In Mustang (Lobo) dialect it is pronounced as TIji (or Tenchi). It is a part of Sadhana (meditation practice) based on root and explanatory Tantra text related with Vajra Kumar (Vajra Kila). Performers of dance should have received empowerments of Vajrakila. Most of the important elements of wrathful Sadhana are preformed in this sacred dance. There are two types of activities during the development/creation phase of meditation.
