What is Creepy Teepee Mongolia?
The creepy Teepee structures are often called “Yurt” or ”ger”. These structures are a part of Shamanism culture but now mostly Buddhists and Mongolians pray according to their beliefs.
These structures are often created by wooden framework or by stones. They usually held an opening on the top of the structure for air ventilation and smoke to be released.
The people who follow the belief system of Mongolian culture sometimes set fire to the creepy teepee to purify people’s souls according to their belief system.
Many creepy teepee festivals are held worldwide with different beliefs and procedures which could be similar to creepy teepy Mongolian’s structure or could be completely different.
Some festivals are just held for entertainment and don’t include any spiritual framework. Instead, they use music to chill.
Facts about Creepy Teepee Mongolia:
The Mongolian Creepy Teepee carries many interesting stories and facts with it throughout its history. The most interesting facts are:
Creepy Teepee possesses extraordinary healing powers:
According to people who used to pray near these wooden frameworks, it possess healing powers that can heal you mentally, spiritually, and also physically.
When I studied Mongolian psychology, is somehow felt a relation between Creepy Teepee worshipers and African Voodoo culture where Voodoo or black magic is used for spiritual and physical healing.
In order to purify or heal people’s souls, they perform a specific kind of ritual which includes setting fire around the Creepy Teepee.
If you study the culture and belief system of Shamanists then you will find that there is a special relationship between shamanists and fire.
According to Shamanism belief, fire is the simple of rebirth, purification, and transformation. That’s why they used to set fire to the Teepee Mongolia structure because Shamanists were the people who started worshiping after creating such a structure.
Creepy Teepee includes an Animal Slaughtering ritual:
You might be shocked after hearing this but it is true. They sometimes use animals for slaughtering in order to get spiritual benefits from Creepy Teepee. This is just part of their belief system.
In my opinion, the Creepy teepee is not just a sacred structure or place for praying for Mongolians, but it is like a god or something like that for people who used to worship it. The possibility is due to the fact that animal slaughtering or animal sacrifice is part of many religions.
So, it feels like they used to worship the Creepy Teepee.
