Namobuddha (or Namura) is for Tibetans one of the three holiest pilgrimage sites south of the Himalaya. Legends say a young prince, Mahasattva (reincarnation of Buddha himself) while walking in a forest with his brothers saw a tigress with 5 cubs she had just given birth to.
The tigress was so hungry that she could barely move. Overcome with compassion, he began to feed the tigress and her cubs by cutting his flesh. Later when other brothers came searching for him, found only his bones and hairs. A stupa was built on top of these remains, now known as Namobuddha.
