The Buddha’s unveiling in Lhasa
The "sunning of the Buddha", is one of the parts of the Shoton Festival, which is a highlight scenery in Lhasa.
Buddha’s unveiling is a spot for the “sunning of the Buddha” ceremony, which makes the start of the festival. The main scenery of the ceremony is that a huge thangka portrait of Shakyamuni Buddha is unfolded on a hillside behind Drepung Monastery. At the beginning, two lines of lamas, carrying a giant roll of material on their shoulders, began marching slowly up the winding track from the monastery. Then, the lamas pulled on the ropes. There was a Shakyamuni Buddha sitting cross-legged and gazing into the distance. At that time, Buddhists began to pay their respects when they were in the presence of the Buddha.
