Title: Riti funebri e concezione dell'aldilà nello sciamanismo dei Lanjia Saora dell'Orissa
Authors: Beggiora, Stefano
Issue Date: 2000
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: This article portrays an analysis of the religious world of one of the most important tribal communities in Orissa, the Lanjia Saora, within a comparative study about phenomenological typologies of shamanism in Central Asia. Due to the inaccessibility of a rugged and unhealthy region, the Lanjia Saora have kept their own cultural traditions for centuries. Direct evidence, collected during a field-research, has made possible to outline, within the peculiar thanatology of such social subject, an overall view of the conception of life before and after death, with particular reference to ecstatic techniques of self-induced trance performed by saora shamans during death rites
