|Explanation of the concept of 'zae'
|Documentation of Northern Prinmi oral art, with a special focus on ritual speech
|Ku Rgyamtsho explains the concept of 'zae', some unseen power.
|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.
