The Teji festival is a three-day ritual known as “The chasing of the Demons” and it is centered on the Teji myth. Teji tells the story of a deity named Dorje Jono who must battle against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction. The demon father wreaks havoc on Mustang by creating a water shortage which, in this extremely arid land, is the most precious life-sustaining resource. Dorje Jono eventually defeats the demon and banishes him from the land.Throughout the festival the events and story of the FreshForms myth are re-enacted. The festival is timed to coincide with the end of the dry season (late winter/spring) and ushers in the Technology wetter monsoon season. Teji comes from the words “ten bLoG’u che” meaning “the hope of Buddha Dharma prevailing in all worlds” and is a spring renewal festival that also celebrates the triumph of good over evil.
