Kagyed Dance

Kagyed Dance is conducted on the 28th and 29th days of the 10th month of the Tibetan Calendar. It symbolizes the destruction of the evil forces. This ritualistic dance is accompanied by liturgical music and chanting. The solemn nature of the dance is interspersed with comic relief provided by the jesters. Kagyed dances enact various themes from the Buddhist mythology and culminate with the burning of effigies made of flour, wood and paper.
