THE 12 MASTA GODS OF JUMLA AREA NEPAL and THEIR 9 SISTERS NAU DURGA BHAWANI AND THE MATERNAL UNCLES: MAHDEV

EATING THUKPA WEARING LUKPA

PART I

First noted by Tucci and Snellgrove the MASTA ARE THE MOST WELL KNOWN GODS OF JUMLA area linked with the AVATAR LINE DEVTA or incarnating gods, the  oracular religion associated with DHAMIS.

The primary sources of information about the gods individual life and histories is the

PARELI

recited by the DHAMI/ORACLES during the God's possession.

THE PARELIS ARE THE GOD'S AUTOBIOGRAPHIES.

Collectively the Masta gods are always spoken of as the

 BARA BHAI (twelve brothers)

in the sense of the fraternal relationship attributed to them.

According Gaborieau twelve is a 'nombre ideal plutot que reel'("Dieu Masta").
Despite most Jumlis are unable to list more than five or six Bara Bhai, a compilation of all the lists collected by different sholars results in 33 different Masta names, 14 of which are reported by more than one sources (Campbell).

Follow a list of the 33 reported Bara Bhai and the location of their principal shrines.

(G=GABORIEAU; P=P.R.SHARMA; D= DEVKOTA; H= HAMAL; S= BK SHRESTHA; C = CAPBELL).


MASTA                 LOCATION OF PRINCIPAL SHRINE

1. BUDU (GSDPC)       BUDU, SIJADARA, JUMLA
2.THARPA (GSDPC)      THARPA, BOMDARA,MUGU

20.KURMI (SP)         KALIKOTDARA
21.LAKHURO (C)         dADAR, sAJHANG
22.DHAULAPURA (C)     bAJURA (SIJA)
23.MAGE (C)           JUKU, PALANTADARA (KALIKOT)
24.LIGUNI (C)        
25.NIGUNIKO (C)
26.DANE (C)
27.LATA SILTO (C)       DADAR, BAJHANG
28.BACKOTCH (C)
29.KADARA (C)
30.BANTAPAL (P)        PAUNI, SIJADARA (DADAR)
31.LVACHARI (P) LAVASOR(C) TELPHI, CHAUDABISDARA
32BANJHKOT (P)         BANJHKOT, PALANTADARA
33.BADDAKOTI (P)       CHAUTO

The names of the Masta derives from two sources:

THE FIRST AND MORE COMMON SOURCE OF THE MASTA'S NAME IS THE NAME OF THE VILLAGE IN WHICH ITS PRINCIPAL SHRINE IS LOCATED.

 

IN ALMOST EVERY CASE THE NAME HAS A SEMANTIC MEANING DESCRIPTIVE OF THE GOD.

KALOSILA (GDC) for example refers to "black rock" a term used to mean "blood-accepting"

DUDHESILA refers to "milk rock" meaning "milk acceptating"


ACCORDING GABORIEAU THE DIFFERENTIATION OF THE MASTA GODS ON THE BASIS OF THE LOCATION OF THEIR MAIN SHRINES SUGGESTS THAT MASTA IS ONE GOD WHOSE INCARNATION IN DIFFERENT VILLAGES  AND DIFFERENT FORMS ARE IDEALLY REFERRED TO AS TWELVE BROTHERS; TO OTHER IT SEEMS TO INDICATE THAT MASTA IS A COLLECTION OF A NUMBER OF VILLAGE GODS WHOSE ORIGINS AND NATURES HAVE CONVERGED OVER THE YEARS.

According Campbell

 COMMON FEATURES SUPPORT AT LEAST THE PARTIAL IDENTITY OF THE VARIOUS SEPARATE INCARNATIONS.

These common features are found in the similarity with which the shrines are organized, the regular worship performed, in the origin stories and life-histories recounted by each brother in his PARELI.

THE SISTERS NAU DURGA BHAWANI

CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH THE TWELVE MASTA BROTHERS ARE THE NINE SISTERS THE

NAU DURGA BHAWANI.

SHARMA MENTION A LEGEND IN WHICH THE REASONS FOR THE MASTA INCARNATION WAS GIVEN AS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE VIRTUE OF THEIR SISTERS FROM DEMONS (RAKSAS). (SHARMA 'DIVINITIES').


ALSO HERE THE NUMBER OF 9 (sisters) IS LIKE THE NUMBER 12(brothers) MORE IDEAL THAN REAL.

(G=GABORIEAU; P=P.R.SHARMA; D= DEVKOTA; H= HAMAL; S= BK SHRESTHA; C = CAPBELL)

BAWANI       SOURCE        MAIN SHRINE LOCATION

1.BAWANI      SGPC          MANY LOCAION GIVEN
2.MALIKA      SGPC          JUMLA. DHARAL,
3.KALIKA      SPC           LITAKOT, MALIKA, LEKH,
4.KANAKASUNDARI SPGC        JUMLA-BAJURA, HADSIJA
5.TRIPURASUNDARI SPGC       SIJADARA, JUMLA-CHAUDA
6.PUGELNI       SHC         JUMLA-TIBRIKOT
7.JALPA       GPC           RAKALDARA, KHATYAR LEKH
8.THAGALNI     S     
KHESAMALLINI   SC           UKHADI, CHAUDABHISDARA.
9.HIMALINI      S
10.MAHAKALI     G
11.SARDA        G
12.DEURALI      G
13.AMBIKA       P
14.CANDIKA      P
15JALANDHARI    P
16. SETI        P

From an ethimological point of view most if the sister's names are puranic epithets of the brahamanical 'hidden' goddess Durga.

ACCORDING CAMPBELL THE IDENTIFICATION OF THESE GODDESSES WITH DURGA IS MADE BY ALL JUMLIS AND IS THE SOURCE OF THE CLASSICAL NUMBER 9.


MANY PURANIC ACCOUNTS MENTION NINE 9 DURGA FORMS.

AFTER JUMLIS HAVE LISTED THE FIRST  5 OR 6 SISTERS WHOSE SHRINES THEY KNOW, THEY COMPLETE THEIR LIST BY RECALLING CLASSICAL EPITHETS OF dURGA LEARNED THROUGH PURANIC ACCOUNTS.

THE MATERNAL UNCLES: MAHDEV

CLOSELY IDENTIFIED WITH THE BROTHERS MASTA AND THE SISTERS BHAWANI ARE A GROUP OF DEITIES CONSIDERED TO BE THEIR MATERNAL UNCLES MAMAS

3.KULDEV,KULDEO               C    MANY LOCATIONS

KHENIS GOSTH EATERS FIGURE

 IN  KAGBENI VILLAGE, NEPAL.

Kagbeni is a fortified two gates medioeval  village located in a strategic place at the cofluence of two river valleys, situated in a fertile area.

During the 19th century the human guards of the gates become superfluous and were replaced with two human figure moulded from clay each  named KHENIS or Ghost Eaters, primitive iconographic subjects probably remanants of the ancient BON religion.

Allora come oggi scarsamente recensite, le arti tradizionali della vasta area himalayana sono latrici di un variegato , ricchissimo e originale repertorio iconografico, frutto della sincretica fusione di stilemi classici e popolari.

Ogni oggetto sembra essere in tal senso latore di una memoria  ancestrale che di volta in volta memorizza, interpreta e rielabora dettagli stilistici dal carattere spesso antinomico, così da  risultare, anche all'osservatore più attento, autentici 'rebus' figurativi, nei quali la presenza di simbologie  archetipicihe universali non è infrequente.

Queste considerazioni non sono però  del tutto valide per la statuaria arcaico-animistica dell'Ovest Nepal.

Queste  sculture  costituiscono la vitale , universale e cristallizzata archetipica testimonianza di culti e credenze popolari  che affondano le proprie radici in un remoto passato  ormai da noi dimenticato ma certamente, un tempo, comune al sentire di  tutti gli uomini.

Sono antecedenti alla differenziazione  ed evoluzione degli stili 'locali', sono opposte alla cd arte tribale, qualcosa che attiene ad una specifica e locale  geolocalizzazione temporale di stili ed iconografie.

Impermeabili alle influenze 'stilistiche' delle religioni major della regione, queste figure riassumono in sè un ricco ed unico  repertorio di credenze sempre più prossimo al collasso.

Uno scientifico e sistematico field work è oggi disperatamente urgente.

Nell'attesa  Ethnoflorence ha intrapreso una mappatura dell'area ed uno studio iconografico-comparativo dei manufatti

THE ANCIENT ARCHETIPYC ICONOGRAPHY OF THE RITUAL WEAPONS AND ANTHROPOMORPHIC FIGURES FROM UTTAR PRADESH.

034

hese anthropomorphic figures, harpoons, ax blades (celts) and anntennae swords were cast and hammered from unalloyed copper.

They may be dated 1500 to 1000 bc.

Given that pure copper is a relatively soft metal and most of the objects ahow little  or no signs of wear, it seems likely that their function was largely dedicatory.

Hoards of such objects have been found across north India, the greatest concentration being in Uttar Pradesh.

The findspots suggest they were ritually deposited in rivers or marshes, though several related antennae swords were recovered in late Indus Valley civilization (ca. 1500 b.c.) burials at Sanauli.

KHENIS GHOST EATERS FIGURE

IN KAGBENI VILLAGE NEPAL

Kagbeni is a fortified two gates medioeval  village located in a strategic place at the cofluence of two river valleys, situated in a fertile area.

During the 19th century the human guards of the gates become superfluous and were replaced with two human figure moulded from clay each  named KHENIS or Ghost Eaters, primitive iconographic subjects probably remanants of the ancient BON religion.

Interesting the iconography of this Himachal Pradesh mask (Museum of Folk and Tribal Art Gurgaon New Dheli  www.museumoffolkandtribalart.in ), collected by Mr KC Aryan for his Museum,  and directly comparable with an item present in the Ethnoflorence Himalayan photo archive.
