text: On the 13th May was the Linghabu. The people went to their fields and did the same ceremonies as on the Ga-wem-bu after the Oulingbu (27th April). (cf. NB 12, p. 166ff.) The next day the people don't work on those fields, on which they made the Ga-wem-bu. Now is the month Linghali. The next month is Ponglongpongli.
