Abstract: The Bodos are the aboriginal tribe of Assam, Northeast India. The dharma, or religion, of the Bodos, is unique to them and forms an important part of their unique identity. Since the beginning of time, Bathouism has continued to be in practice. It is thought to be among the earliest Dharmas. The Bodos have faith in Bathou Bwrai, the Supreme Being who is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present. The supreme deity, also known as the Bathou Bwrai or the Bwrai Bathou, is worshipped by the followers of Bathouism. A Bathousali (Bathou altar) is built in the courtyard of each Bathouist home. A Bathou Thansali (place of worship, temple), where followers pray every Tuesday, also exists in the community. Bathouism believers observe all the ceremonies and rituals constituted by "Si Bwrai and Si Burwi," the earliest humans known to have been born. The Sijou tree is a representation of the Bathou Bwrai on the altar. The Bathou altar, which is held together by 18 bamboo post and five folds, has a Sijou tree in the centre. The five-fold represents the value of five Bandws (Bindings) or ties of human existence that one must abide by, while the 18 bamboo post represents the 18 (gurus) gods and goddesses of Bathouism. This article attempts to highlight the significance of the meanings associated with the numbers five and 18 (gurus) gods and goddesses in Bathouism.
Keywords: Bodos, Bathouism, Sijou, Five-folds, 18 gurus.
