Paper Title
The Santals’ Belief System: An indication to their deeper dimension
  Dr. Vijay Kumar Kerketta

The article deals with the belief system of the Santals in order to delve deep into the deeper dimension of their life. Though a primitive society, not only do they have a well knit societal order but also they have well programmed festivals coupled with a hierarchy of deities and spirits both benevolent and malevolent. One must pay a keen attention to delineate who are worshipped and who are merely appeased. Worship or appease the leitmotif behind is a harmonious coexistence with their deities, nature and the fellow Santals.

Keywords- Worship, sacrifice, spirit (bonga) feasts, harmonious coexistence, priest (naeke)
