NEW BODO VIDEO 2019// BATHOU DUNGNI // RELIGIOUS OF BODO PEOPLE

Bathouism (बाथौ) is the traditional religion of the Bodo people or Kachari people. The name Bathou in Bodo means five principles. The five principles are: bar (air), orr (fire), ha (earth), dwi (water) and okhrang (sky). The chief deity, called Bathoubwrai —omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent—is said to have created the five principles. Though there are other minor gods and goddesses, Bathoubwrai is considered the Supreme God. Bathoubwrai is unseen. The second most important deity is Mainao, the consort of Bathoubwrai, who is considered as the "protector of the rice fields".
