This part is devoted to manang and lemambang (bard). The mythology deals with the origin of shamanism and concepts of sickness. Geographical illustrations show the area of Gunung Rabong (Mount Rabong), the “holy” mountain, where the souls of the departed manang rest. Initiation procedures and further, higher grades of the manang are presented by detailed illustrations. Manang bali and woman manang complete this section. A comparative study of the Differences of manang and lemambang follows. The introduction to magic and superstition enriches the spiritual aspects. The manang and omen-birds, omenanimals, teeth of animals is another complex of thoughts and interactions between the manang and the animal world. An overview of magical-and medicinal-plants completes this part.
Appendix: Gunung Rabung-Mountain of souls and the sacred mountains of Kalimantan.
