Scotland - Dumfriesshire - Tibetan-Buddhism Rag-Dung trumpet players.
Usually played in pairs for morning and evenings calls to prayer, preludes, and processions, two western nuns following Tibetan-Buddhism play their Rag-Dung (brass trumpets) in a garden at the Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre in Eskdalemuir, Scotland. One nun looks across to check finger positions of her fellow-player and they are sat cross-legged on the lush grass surrounded with flowers and tall plants. The Rag-Dung is the most spectacular of Tibetan ritual copper horns and some are up to twenty feet long. With a deeply resonant sound it is relatively easy to play. Those following this branch of Buddhism arrive in the Scottish wilderness for isolated Retreat periods, for short-term spiritual relaxation or to follow Tibetan teaching methods for discovering inner-peace, through prayer and meditation.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
