Description
The title Durthro Dagmo (Charnel Ground) Che (Lord) Zhi (Four) is generally shortened to Durdag when referring to this skeleton dance . These four Lords are protectors of the religion who inhabit the eight large cremation grounds situated on the external edges of Mount Sumeru. This was the surprise of the Y/C drup - contrary to most Durdags the dance was performed by very young monks (seven - nine year-olds) who were extremely limber and supple - so the back-bends drew gasps from the audience.
