Ashi Lhamo

Ahsi means “older sister” and Lhamo is “Goddess”

This ritual is very unique because it is performed only by women in Ura, Bumthang District.

It is a three days ritual to please all their local deities and get blessings for good weather  and harvesting.

A group of village women from Ura will have to climb early morning to the summit of the mountain overlooking Ura to dance and invite the deities to come to the monastery for a three days celebration.
