Introduction

The second part of the rituals that concern children is about making a solemn vow during the birth ceremony.

Laudatory ritual of the shaman for younger children.

According to our informants, shamans were invited not only to the patient, which was typical of Tuvan society, but also during childbirth. An identical phenomenon has been reported by I.S. Gurvich. He wrote: Sometimes a shaman was invited in difficult births. The birth of a child among the Tuvanians was celebrated with a holiday, and this custom is expressed organically in shamanic algysch. Here is a small example:

Example

Younger kids, local kids, opey-opey,
Don't be weak, be lively, 00-00, oo-oo.
Let it bloom like a bud, opey-opey.
Let her grow like a gray cuckoo, 00-00, oo-oo.
Like bud flowers, opey-opey,
Like the wings of a gray cuckoo, oo-oo, 00-00.
Younger kids, of all things, opey-opey,
May everyone grow up peacefully, oo-oo, oo-oo.
Like flowers of the world, opey-opey!
Beautiful, wonderful local kids, oo-oo, oo-oo,
Like flowers of the native side, opey-opey.
Special, beautiful younger kids, oo-oo, oo-oo.
Play Saizanak (1), opey-opey
Very young children, oo-oo, oo-oo.
Descendant of the continuation of antiquity, opey-opey!
Born well, oo-oo, oo-oo.
Follow the historic street, opey-opey.
Be native descendants by origin, oo-oo, oo-oo,
You're born of creation, opey-opey!
May the younger children grow up peacefully, oo-oo, oo-oo.

Explanation

In this Algysh we see a solemn ode dedicated to young children, the true descendants of their parents and compatriots. You, these babies, should, at the request of the shaman, become mighty and become the successors of the family. The shaman sincerely calls young children the flowers of the native side, but in his opinion they were born by the decree of the creator - the idol. It is not difficult to notice that in these lines the shaman attributes the most precious thing about children - to their Ereny (guardian spirits).
