PEDRO PITARCH RAMÓN
In the ceremonies of protection of life and, above all, in the healing of diseases, the Tzeltal shamans sing certain prayers in a sort of verbal hemorrhage that allows them to establish a communication with a beyond that intervenes incessantly in the world of humans. But to pronounce these prayers is not the privilege of anyone: the gift of singing them is acquired in the dream. For his words seem to bring from the heart something that was already formed from the perpetual past. In this volume, Pedro Pitarch offers us the fragrant beauty of six of these songs. And through them, it allows us to know one of the pious and endearing faces with which Mayan peoples dialogue with the intangible.
