in the early February,2011 when the tibetans celebrate the new year, there will be lots of fantastic activities held in tibetan region. the locals call this festival, Molang festival.

this festival was originated from AC 1409 when the china Ming Dynasty in its flourish time and the Great Master of Gelu Titetan Buddhism, Zongkaba first proposed this religious ceremony to promote Buddhist scripture interpretation for wishful pray . since the second Dala Lama, this ceremony has become a traditional festival. Molang festival is hold on the 3rd, January of Tibetan calendar, lasting to the 17th of the same month. This activity consists of group-chanting of the scripture and an outdoor religious ceremony of large scale. From the 3rd, January of Tibetan calendar to 12th, we will see groups of Lama and monks in cassock chanting the Buddhist scripture in the vast scripture –chanting hall to express their wish of ridding the evils and disasters, guiding the health of families and their herds, and the coming of the harvest year. At that time , the scripture hall will be illuminated by the butter light, echoing with the chanting of the monks, which just impose a mysterious and majestic atmosphere. The local residents gather there to listen to the Buddhist preaching.  Molan festival in Tibetan language is called “Molangqiemo”, which means “summoning religious ceremony”. It is the largest religious festival in Tibetan region in which we can see the activities like scripture-chanting, religious dancing to invite Buddha, and various praying activities with people wearing colorful Tibetan costumes. During that time we also see many typical Buddhist instruments which we have never seen.
