Mustang Tiji Festival is believed to have prevailed around the time of Lowo Kenchen (1456-1532), considered as one of the greatest Buddhist teacher and preacher of his time. It was then celebrated with great enthusiasm and was evidently considered as one of the main festival of Lo.
This festival gained its prior glory and reputes after the visit of Ngachen Ngawang Kunga Sonam, a great Sakyapa master from Tibet who was invited so as to pacify the gods and remove any impediment from the Buddhist religious traditions. This master is said to have performed the masked dances as the main dancer (tsowo) and pulled an arrow to drive away demons during the Mustang Tiji festival trek.
The First day Activity of Tiji Festival
The first day Tiji Festival is observed with the sounds of drum, cymbals and horns which are blown by the lamas announcing the beginning of the festival. An enormous Thanka is unrolled down the entire south wall of the square. The enactment of the myth is done by the masked dancers and exquisite dances are performed.
The Second day Activity of Tiji Festival
The second day of Tiji Festival is equally enjoyable as day one, where many people gather along with the king of Mustang wearing traditional dress and have a magnificent feast.
The Third day Activity of Tiji Festival
The third day of Tiji Festival marks the end of the festival with the ceremonial destruction of the remains of the demon. Sounds of cheers are heard as the people burn down the replica of the demon constructed by them.
