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 Durdag takes place within the context of the longer Zhanag (Dance of the Black Hats) shown in the previous record. The Four Lords of the Charnel Ground are instrumental in carrying out the linga to the centre of the arena - which the Black Hat dancers need to perform the subjugation ritual that their dance re-enacts.Nyimalung Trenda is held for three days on the 8th to the 10th day of the 5th Bhutanese month. The final blessing day coincides with the anniversary of the Birth of Guru Rinpoche. A Chamjug or rehearsal day is held on the 7th day of the Lunar month.
