DHAMI HUMLA NEPALESE ORACLES

DHAMIS

HUMLA 

ORACLES

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)

 

photostream.jpg

A Dhami

collapses at the end of his trance dance and is carried back to the shaman hut by villagers.

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 

 different sholars results in 33 different Masta names, 14 of which are reported by more than one sources (Campbell ).

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.

A low caste shaman

gives

the ultimate gesture of submission to a high caste shaman as he invokes the gods before a ritual trance dance.

*

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
