Sacrifice: the Abkhazian way
Views: 1030

In Traditional Abkhazian belief, ritual sacrifice is involved. Most often, a white goat, sheep or a bull is sacrificed. The meaning of this rite is to thank God for saving souls. More often, they ask from God for the success of this or that person and pray for the salvation of his/her life, health or well-being. Many Abkhazian families perform this ritual of sacrifice every year; it is commanded by their ancestors. This duty they pass from generation to generation.
