Happy Butter Lamp Festival Day!

On this date (March 9th), the annual Butter Lamp Festival in held by Buddhist monks in Tibet to render demons powerless and to secure the favor of the gods.  Yak-butter sculptures of Buddhist heroes are paraded through the streets as sacred chants are recited.  After the procession, the sculptures are then cast into the waters of the river.
