Ritual of Aziz
Components and tools
For the ritual, a set of items is required: a bag of dried Morcela mushrooms, a bundle of wood for the ritual fires, a stack of scrolls and charcoal for writing onto the scrolls.
Only the Ondar is performing the ritual, the group of people that accompanies her to the mountain stays in a camp further down the mountain and waits for her coming back to the camp.
The ritual is being performed once a year during summer, there is no exact date given. At some day the Ondar announces that it is the right time now, and the day after the small group of people sets out for the Tanaan. After about seven days the group arrives back in Parafifi, surrounding the Ondar, whose skin seems to glow from the touch of the goddess, and she is carrying the bundle of scrolls filled with the goddess' wisdom, soon to be replicated into the Words of Aziz. Some people call the ritual "Azizination" because each year one member of the travelling group vanished without a trace. Yet, there were always more people than needed willing to accompany the Ondar, as it is a big honour for everyone to escort the Ondar. Family members of the vanished person usually accepted the disappearance as a gift of Aziz. Five years ago the vanishing has suddenly stopped.
