Tungdunge mundhum is the myth of the Samba of Kirat Limbu. Samba Limbu pays a special tribute to their father every three years. It is a traditional rite for the householder to pray for safety and health. At present, this worship is being done by all the people of Limbu. The e-book aims to share mundhum (myth) to the world with a brief analysis.

Mundhum means knowledge. Tungdunge mundhum is the traditional worship of Kirat Limbu Samba. In this adoration, the samba (priest) worships by making a Mangthan place of worship available. The tale details the path and influence of his ancestor Tungdunge. The prayer asks the gods to keep his family healthy and energetic preventing them from infertile, stupid, and lame. It was accompanied by the sacrifice of a goat and a cock to the lord. The ritual of reciting the myth takes place in Mangthane. The pooja comes to an end with a plea for the family. The book introduces this story and compares and reviews it with different levels. Mundhum is brought to life by the Samba people in this article. How the meaning of Mundhum was assimilated is discussed.
