The Rebirth of The Faith of Ancestors

The Rebirth of The Faith of Ancestors Dear inhabitants of the Tonshaevskij region!

On the 11th of may 2008, as in the old good times, when all Mari people considered each other as brothers, in the Holy “Awesome ” Grove near a village Ashkaty with the blessings of the Main Kart [kart] (a hierophant) of Mari El republic Alexander Ivanovich Tanygin will be performed the spring praying of the followerships of The Mari Traditional Religion.

We invite to come and to pray to Osh Kugu Yumo all Mari people, who desire to have peace, health and welfare in their families.

The praying will be led by the Onaeng of Kuzhenerskij region of the Mari El republic Albert Ivanovich Rukavishnikov.

It was explained by Albert Rukavishnikov that when for a long time (more than 10-30 years) in The Sacred Grove were not passed any prayings, this ceremony (on the 11th of May in Tonshaevskiy district of Nizhniy-Novgorod region) - is not the praying in the classical understanding of The Religion of Ancestors, but a Sjorymash, the notice of Osh Kugu Yumo near the Onapu (a world tree) about the fact that in this Sacred Grove the Admirers of The Religion of Ancestors begin to conduct the prayings. After Sjorymash the prayings are passed approximately after a half of a year. Sjorymash includes mostly the same rites as during the prayings (pancakes, kvass, bonfires, etc), with the exception of the sacrificial offerings.

The call of the Leader of Mari community

The call of the Leader of Mari communityAddressing it today to you, I want to notify you about the decision of the Council of Elders of our community. Thus it was historically formed, that the separated Mari settlements because of their misfortunes and unhappiness had to search for patronages and protection by a powerful prince, fighter-bogatyr Chumbylat. In the hearts of people he deserved a special respect, with the lapse of time a national hero became as a Mari public Divinity A Nemda Kuryk Kugyza. Our ancestors began to come to the bow to Chumbylat's stone to ask for the help and to thank for it.

Even during the years of persecutions nothing could destroy the faith of people. In our days ancient traditions unite from a year to year more and more Mari people. We call on you not to forget about your historical native land, remember your roots and traditions of your nation. And let A Nemda Kuryk Kugyza to unite us, will give us powers in the present time and in the future!

If you hear the call of heart, then let Osh Kugu Jumo to light up your way to the holy place. On the 4th of July 2008 in the praying grove on Chumbylat will be take place a sacrament contact with the Godfather.

With respect the Leader of the “Mari community "Marij Kumaltysh"

Mari traditional religion

Mari traditional religionMarij Yumyjjula

Mari traditional religion is based on the faith in the powers of nature, which man must deify and respect. Before the beginning of the propagation of monotheistic studies Mari people deified many well-known Gods by the name Jumo, considering in this case the supremacy of the Main God (Kugu Yumo). The figure of the Unique God Of Tjung Osh Kugu Yumo (A Unique Great Bright God) was revived in the XIX century.

The existence during many centuries and a wide acceptance of the Mari Traditional Religion is confirmed by both historical and modern sources. The references about it in various forms are encountered in Russian chronicles of XVI - XVII centuries. A russian scientist N.P.Rychkov wrote in 1770 about the cult of ancestors, which existed among Maris: “This is the best of all thoughts: because to become similar to your ancestors and to preserve their chaste dispositions is meritoriously for other nations”.

The open letter to Bill Gates

Dear Mr. Gates!

The Internet dazzles with messages "Bill leaves. Long live Gates!", that you leave business and will be engaged in charity and that more than two billions persons are waiting for your money. It is impressive.

We wish to express expectations of quite small quantity of people, namely about 1 million person. It is a trifle for you - mere trifle. But approximately so much people of one not numerous nationality - Mari - live on the Earth.

It's turned out, that the majority of us do not have possibility to buy Apple Macintosh computers. Almost all of computer shops sell only IBM-compatible computers and of course with licensed Windows package. Many of us bought computers with licensed Windows.
We use Cyrillic alphabet in writing but also our native language - mari language - has 5 additional letters more:
The open letter to Bill Gates

Possibly you can't see these 5 letters - they are not displayed, right?
They are written using Mari-Time Roman font.
