-THE VILLAGE GODS OF SOUTH INDIA

THE MOST COMPLETE PAGE OF THE WEB DEVOTED TO THE GRAMA DEVATAS OF SOUTH INDIA, AND NOT ONLY.

A REPORT ABOUT THE UNIQUE FIELD DOCUMENTATIONS THAT  HARRY HOLTZMAN COLLECTED 50 YEARS AGO.

"The Grama Devatas represent still today an important key to understanding the basic model of thought of a  part of South Indian population, still living the village way of life. These particular forms of image and worship have further the extraordinary characteristic of representing the most ancient tradition of the earliest past brought into the present. From the religious art view point, the village shrines represent an outstanding expression of forms and sites unique to India. Mr Stephen Inglis in his writing "Night Riders: Massive Temple Figures of Rural Tamil Nadu", about the terracotta horses of South Indian Shrines wrote that "... technically they are the most ambitiuous achievements in clay found in India and by any survey probably the largest hollow clay images to be created anywhere."

- DIGITAL HIMALAYA

THANGMI FILM COLLECTION

Since 1997, Mark Turin and Sara Shneiderman have been using digital video to document the cultural complex of Thangmi shamanism and its related cosmology.

 

Below are five links of short clips of Thangmi shamans conducting rituals which include cutting hair for purification before ritual practice, a narration of the Thangmi origin myth, a healing ritual in Damarang (Dolakha district, Nepal), and an exorcism ritual and subsequent healing ritual in Kodari (Sindhupalcok district, Nepal).

1) Thangmi Shaman Film: Rana Bahadur Cutting His Hair

This film clip shows the senior shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Rana Bahadur having his head shaved by a relative in preparation for an important ritual. Rana Bahadur shared a great deal of his knowledge with anthropologists Shneiderman and Turin before he passed away in late 2002.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Suspa, Dolakha district, Nepal, 2000

http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/thangmiarchive...


2) Rana Bahadur Origin Song

This film clip shows the senior shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Rana Bahadur narrating a section of the Thangmi origin myth. He beats a plate to the rhythm of his chanting. Rana Bahadur shared a great deal of his knowledge with anthropologists Shneiderman and Turin before he passed away in late 2002.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Suspa, Dolakha district, Nepal, 2000

http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/thangmiarchive...

3) Jit Bahadur Healing Ritual

This film clip shows the young shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Jit Bahadur, the son of Rana Bahadur, beating his drum and going into trance to exorcise the malevolent spirits which have caused a young woman to be ill. The film was shot in complete darkness in an attempt to accurately illustrate the atmosphere of a shamanic seance.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Suspa, Dolakha district, Nepal, 2000.

http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/thangmiarchive...

4) Kodari Guru Healing Ritual I

This film clip shows the senior shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Jhankri Maila, preparing flour effigies of the spirit world on a bamboo winnowing tray. After the preparations are complete, he commences the ritual which is a healing ritual for a young woman who has been feeling unwell for some time.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Kodari, Nepal, January 1998.

http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/thangmiarchive...

5) Kodari Guru Healing Ritual II

This film clip shows the senior shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Jhankri Maila, with a patient. After asking some preliminary questions about his general health and diet, he checks the patient's pulse and heart and blows the infection away. Afterwards, they share a cigarette.

Filmed by Mark Turin in Kodari, Nepal, January 1998

THE VILLAGE GODS OF SOUTH INDIA.

In a letter of November 6 1966, the late  Art historian of South Asian art  Ms Stella Kramrisch (1896 Nikolsburg (now Mikulov), Czech Republic - 1993 Philadelphia, PA) , at that time  Curator of Indian Art of the Philadelphia Museum of Art asked and then obtained  some photographs from the late American Artists Mr  Harry Holtzman  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Holtzman (1912 NYC - 1987 Lyme Ct) for her scheduled exhibition on traditionally Indian village Art "Unknown India Ritual Art in Tribe and Village"(Philadelphia Museum of Art 1968).

"...La gente dell'Himalaya sa che le foreste sono abitate da uomini selvaggi.

Ci sono le tribù dei Kusuda e dei Chepang, scoperte dagli antropologi pochi anni fa, ma anche i Ritte Jhakri, neri e pelosi, che vivono con i Suna Jhakri, acquanauti dal pelo fulvo e dorato.

Consiglio di evitare i Latho Jhakri, muti e pazzi, mentre è un dono divino l'incontro con i Bon Jhakri, nani e vegetariani, verdi e caritatevoli, che insegnano le arti sciamaniche.

Di notte, vicino al fuoco e ai monti più alti della terra, ho incontrato più volte chi mi giurava d'esser stato educato da queste creature dei boschi e come prova mi mostrava i regali ricevuti: pietre sonanti, cristalli e strane reliquie antropomorfe fatte di pelo e radici intrecciate. 

Per sopravvivere allo sterminio e a una caccia a streghe e demoni che mi ricorda quella della nostra inquisizione, molti sciamani si sono dovuti mascherare con liturgie indù e buddiste.

Lo sciamano è un uomo coraggioso, un viaggiatore e un mistico che sfida l'ignoto e il mistero dell'esistenza. E' un uomo straordinario che riesce a curarsi da dolorose malattie iniziatiche e da laceranti crisi esistenziali che lo strascinano al limite della follia. E' un artista che inventa psicodrammi e danze estatiche per rinsaldare il gruppo e perpetuare così i miti del Clan. E' uno psicologo contadino che ristabilisce l'equilibrio armonioso tra il "dentro" e il "fuori", tra il corpo e l'anima, tra l'uomo e dio. E' un medico e un erborista che conosce le piante maestre e pscichedeliche, un econauta in viaggio nella natura selvaggia in compagnia degli animali eletti a spiriti guida.

Col "volo magico", il viaggio interiore,scopre il ritmo vibratorio e le forme dell'Universo. Sale in Paradiso e scende con coraggio nel regno della Morte, la Terra del Grande Ritorno.

Noi, viaggiatori verso Oriente, li abbiamo scelti come maestri del viaggio...".

Among the pieces of this Shamanic kit, the interesting iconography of the phurbu and dhyangro handle is comparable with some pieces exhibited in the 2007 Francois Pannier exhibition of Paris.
