Ein Krieg in den Himmeln


„The Tengers were divided into White and Black. White Tengers came to be known as all-knowing, all-compassionate inhabitants of the Western part of the Upper World, akin to deities, while the fierce, ethnocentric Black Tengers, often invoked for power or vengeance, were seen as being from the Eastern part of the Upper World. Thus came into being the pan-Mongolian cosmology of the Ninety-Nine Skies (realms) of the Upper World, with fifty-five White Tengers in the West and forty-four Black Tengers in the East. There is some talk in Mongolia that so many new shamans are now being recruited by the spirits because of a war between these two spiritual regions; but opinions differ widely, and conjecture over coffee and vodka can run wild.“
