Thakuris claim

MASTA

as their most important deity.


He is not a deity who is represented by images but he is personified by a Dhami, 

who is possessed by his spirit.


Local people believe that there are twelve Masta with their nine sisters,

NAVA DURGA

BHAWANI.


Paturne deities are more honoured because they speak directly through a Dhami's mouth.
