A rag-dung is also called a dung-chen and is an ancient instrument associated with Buddhism that is played for preludes, processions, as well as morning and evening calls to prayer. Trumpets like these were used in ensemble playing, while larger ones (12 to 15 feet) were used in processions. The large trumpets would be carried on the shoulders of monks, or supported on boxes when they were played in processions. These trumpets were also played on rooftops to alert the villagers and ancestral spirits of upcoming feast days.
