This year, fear, anguish, courage, bravery and many other experiences and human feelings have reached the ears of the inhabitants of that area of the Amazon. The COVID19 virus is advancing and people in the jungle are always thinking ahead, thinking of anticipating what is to come. Faced with an ‘enemy’ as powerful as that virus, from the tradition and spirituality of these indigenous peoples, the only thing they have much power to face it with is the sacred ritual of Yuruparí. This ritual, which overflows in many ways, as it is a universe that is almost difficult to explain, for many hundreds of years has been carried out with dedication and devotion with all the rigor and discipline that it implies, to such an extent that many have preferred to distance themselves or not participate because of how hard, serious and delicate it is.
But this year, everything changed. The generations of men who for many years had been estranged, this year have decided to attend the most important ritual, seeing that this virus has already made its first arrival in Tabatinga and possibly Leticia. The news says that this week the sacred rituals began in various rivers. Apaporis, Mirití, Pira, Papurí, Vaupés, Caño Ti, Tiquié, Negro, Bajo Caquetá, Japurá, all doing their sacred ritual again. Many young and old participating. Many for the first time, others after many years. In the end, a joint force connecting with the roars of the world, with the sounds of the planet.
Now, from the jungle, as well as in other latitudes of the planet, groups of human beings are in physical and spiritual works to purify the planet, to clean the totumas (sacred cups) and the benches of the guardians the air, of the rains, of the animals, of the rays and many beings, people, nations that we inhabit here. the rays and many beings, people, nations that we inhabit here.
