Ayahuasca Visions | Soplo del Banco Puma by Pablo Amaringo


Soplo del Banco Puma  by Pablo Amaringo

Soplo del Banco Puma by Pablo AmaringoThe banco puma is a master shaman who transforms himself into a puma to go hunting or to hide from an enemy. In the old days when people in the Ucayali region did not have fire arms to kill large animals, the banco puma would use his ability to bring back food for his family.

When the shaman transforms himself into a puma he acquires its attributes; in particular a keen sense of smell, and sinchi-ňahui (strong eyes) which can mesmerise an enemy. A banco puma is a skilled healer with great knowledge of medicinal plants.
