Nov.9 marks the Dissension Festival in Tibet Autonomous Region. It's the day of Sakyamuni descending to the world or it also has another meaning that it's a day of the 7-year-old Sakyamuni returning to India after the sermon to his mother.

On that day, the Tibetan Buddhists went to monasteries, such as Jokhang Temple, Ramoche Monastery and Potala Palace to burn incense and pay the entire body-long pilgrimage.
