In this religious festival of Monepath, Lama Buddhist priests read religious texts for many days in Gompa Buddhist Temple. Thereafter the villagers carry the religious books on their back in a procession under the guidance of senior Lama. The procession goes round the cultivated fields which fall within the jurisdiction of the village. The significance of this performance is to ensure better cultivation and protect the grains from the insects and wild animals and also for the prosperity of the villagers.
The ritual involves the suspension of all outside activities for a definite period. People at Tawang do lots of preparations for this most awaited festival, Monpas used to clean their houses and discard all old and unused items to ward off all evil things from life and escort well ness and prosperity of the family.
