The most important part of this festival is the masked dance. This masked dance started as the Mahayana tradition and at the present day it continues as the Buddhist tradition. In the 8th century the Chaam Dance was performed according to the Tibetan scripts. These masked dances are the descendents of this chaam dance. The main reason behind performing this masked dance is to please the deity. It is a common belief that if the deity is pleased then She will save all her disciples from any sort of evil. It is also a belief that if the deity is pleased then the region is free of any sort of natural calamities. These supernatural beliefs are continuing since ages.
