Description:Ku Rgyamtsho performs the Calling a soul ritual. This ritual is done to call back a soul that has escaped from someone's body in order to prevent illness and death.
This man had learned all the rituals as the assistant of a priest@ who since passed away. While priests rely on the scriptures which they read during rituals@ helpers should know the rituals by heart and rely on their memory@ since they are expected to hand the priest the correct paraphernalia at the correct times and conduct appropriate movements accompanying the rituals. Thus@ this helper could recite rituals from memory.
