Celebrating the victory of good over evil




A Cham Lama performance on the auspicious occasion of Buddha Jayanti at Tupchiling Gompa in Lahaul in Himachal Pradesh. Monks in elaborate masks, headgear and colourful costumes dance slowly to the music played, also by monks, using traditional instruments such as drums and cymbals. It is believed that the Cham dance is performed to exorcise evil spirits and demons.
