ABSTRACT

In the universal notion of the Evenki, human souls are three: the bird soul Omi, the shadow soul Hanjan, and the physical soul Bɛen. Omi transforms into Hanjan at the age of 1, so while alive, human souls are Hanjan and Bɛen. The human soul is Omi in the heavenly world (waiting for reincarnation) ⇒ Omi moves to the middle world for reincarnation ⇒ Omi passes through the chimney and arrives at the oven ⇒ Omi moves and settles in the womb ⇒ the physical soul, Bɛen, is born ⇒ after the age of 1, Omi transforms into Hanjan(the beginning of a real human life) ⇒ Hanjan transforms into Omi at the same time as death ⇒ moves to the heavenly world Omiruuk (waiting for reincarnation) ⇒ repeatedly moving to relay for reincarnation, he lives an immortal reincarnation life.
