Bhutanese monks ward off evil spirits

by participating in a traditional masked dance

Location: Bodh Gaya, India

Date: January 8, 2021

(SOUNDBITE) (Hindi) BUDDHIST RELIGIOUS LEADER, BHUTAN, SONAM DORJE, SAYING:"All the monks performing the traditional dance are believed to be the incarnation of gods. There are a lot of evil spirits in the place where we live who cause disturbance. The evil spirits will not disturb us if the monks perform the dance. So, we will get peace, and we will help others in getting peace, and if we will not live in peace then we cannot let others live in peace."
