Sacrifice in Primal Religions

Rev. Lalchawiliana Varte (Author)

Sacrifice, the fundamental ritual through which a religion performs its function in society has been found in religions all over the world and inevitably has extensive impacts upon the socio-economic and religious life of the practitioners. This research determines the impact of sacrifices on the socio-economic and religious life of the traditional Dimasa Kacharis in Dima Hasao district of Assam, whose religious heritage, handed down orally from generation to generation has managed to survive dynamically in the face of modernization and the influence of major religions. It provides some suggestions and prospects for remedying the negative impacts of sacrifices without intruding upon the religious beliefs of the community. The study also highlights the role of the Church towards a more effective and holistic Christian mission among the Dimasa Kachari community.
