Tengri is about the Wind Burial, a traditional Mongolian ritual that is deeply rooted in the Shamanic belief. When a person dies, the wind spirit will guide the person’s soul to ascend, ultimately to the cradle of father heaven (Tengri). “Tengri” is a Turkic word, which refers not only the holy, blue sky, but also the primary deity of nature that has been worshipped by Mongolic and Turkic peoples. It compromises Shamanism, Animism and other spiritual practices that connect people, spirits and nature together.
