 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Monasteries and convents were common throughout Bhutan in the late twentieth century. Both monks and nuns kept their heads shaved and wore distinguishing maroon robes. Their days were spent in study and meditation but also in the performance of rituals honoring various bodhisattvas, praying for the dead and seeking divine intercession on behalf of the ill. Some of their prayers involved chants and singing accompanied by conch shell trumpets, thighbone trumpets, metal horns up to three meters long, large standing drums and cymbals, hand bells, temple bells, gongs and wooden sticks. Such monastic music and singing, not normally heard by the general public, has been reported to have great virility and to be more melodious than its Tibetan monotone counterparts. To bring Buddhism to the people, numerous symbols and structures are employed. Religious monuments, prayer walls, prayer flags and sacred mantras carved in stone hillsides were prevalent in the early 1990s. Among the religious monuments are chorten, the Bhutanese version of the Indian stupa. They range from simple rectangular house chorten to complex edifices with ornate steps, doors, domes and spires. Some are decorated with the Buddha's eyes that see in all directions simultaneously. These earth, brick or stone structures commemorate decreased kings. Buddhist saints, venerable monks and other notables and sometimes they serve as reliquaries. Prayer walls are made of laid or piled stone and inscribed with Tantric prayers. Prayers printed with woodblocks on cloth are made into tall, narrow, colourful prayer flags, which are then mounted on long poles and placed both at holy sites and at dangerous locations to ward off demons and to benefit the spirits of the dead. Volumes of the book present every aspects of Bhutanese Buddhism.
