    This “ritual of the broken stone” was performed in July 1996 to celebrate an auspicious event in a private house of Choglamsar, a settlement of Tibetan refugees in Leh (Ladakh, India). According to my informant Tsering Dargyal, its performers were ermits living in caves of Spiti. Most astonishing is the mixture of a religious ritual, comical scenes and a demonstration of magical powers. I am looking for Tibetan language experts to translate and comment the document so that an annotated source video may be shared on
