Long Horn (Dung​-​Chen)

by Tashi Lhunpo Monks

  • Streaming + Download

    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Please check which audio format your smart phone can use for custom Ringtones before purchasing a Tashi Ringtone.
    Many smart phone handsets are able to use MP3 files as Ringtones, although if you're an Apple user (running iOS5) you'll need the Ringtones in .m4r format to be able to experience the true path to smart phone/tablet enlightenment.
    The Apple compatible .m4r files are also included as a bonus file with each Bandcamp download as the Bandcamp chaps are very clever indeed and have no issues with freedom of choice and self- determination when it comes to audio formats.
    Whatever audio file format you opt for, please also bear in mind you’ll need to be able to transfer your downloaded file, preferably in a calm and peaceful manner, to your phone or tablet of choice via e-mail/Bluetooth/i-tunes - depending on the requirements of your device.

Long horns, played in pairs tell the deities that the monks are about to begin their prayers. Typically over nine feet long (with a sound sometimes compared to the singing of elephants) the Long Horns are played from the roof of the monastery for several hours, alerting the villagers nearby that the monks are preparing for a special ceremony.
