To fight the wrath of the gods, the “shaman-priests” of the Bön, the Bönpos, engage in complex rituals and ceremonies. They serve as mediums between spirits and men. The rites they perform are different in each region of Tibet, because each place is inhabited by a particular spirit which is an integral part of the daily life of the inhabitants of the region, and for whom offerings and sacrifices are made.
