Intro Sample...


Donyi-Polo literally means “SUN & MOON”. Donyi-Poloism is an animist faith followed by many tribal groups in Arunachal Pradesh, particularly the Adis, Nyishis, Apatanis, Galos, Tagins etc. In other words this is the traditional faith of people who call themselves to be the descendants of ABOTANI- the first human on the Earth. That is why some people suggest that this faith be called as TANI FAITH.
Some anthropologists argue that Donyi-Polo is probably derived from the pre-Budhist Bon religion of Tibet regarded as an unorthodox form of Budhism.

He was a true lover of indigenous faith and culture and a man of compound qualities but interestingly very simple, jolly and easily accessible person. When one reads the thoughts reflected in his writings one wonders how a single man could think all of these. Ranging from socio-cultural identity to philosophy, from status of women to curse of drug ediction, from spirituality to environment, he touched upon almost everything in his writings.
His deep concern for socio-cultural identity of the Adis is well reflected in his poem “Adi e Nyokdakbong” meaning “The Adis are about to go waste.”
In yet another poem “ Ami Ati Kaaboma” he advises the Adis not to be allured by other’s belongings.
On rights of women he wrote that the daughters are equally the precious possessions of mother and father. His concern for ecology and environment is amply reflected in his poem “Simone Ngo, Pettange Ngo”in which he laments that human beings have become blood thirsty like ‘Banji Banmang’ .He said, having annihilated the animals and birds, man is destroying the ecology.
These are glimpses of Golgi Bote’s thoughts of very high order. With these sublime thoughts immersed in his deep love for indigenous faith and philosophy he finally wrote a book called “Donyi-Polo-A Religion”. He then paved the way for the formation of “Adi Cultural and Literary Society”in 1982, “Donyi-Polo Spiritual Society of Arunachal Pradesh”in 1987 and most importantly “Donyi-Polo Yelam Kebang” the Spiritual organization that actually ignited the flame of Donyi-Polo faith in Arunachal Pradesh came into being on ...
