A lot of things can be awarded to the coastal province. Chamamé , religious faith, unbridled love for fishing and its clear waters . It also has a gastronomy with exquisite flavors, heterogeneous landscapes and interesting legends to entertain a lifetime. “ Corrientes has payé” , you read and hear say by all the locals. For those who come from outside, it's hard to understand the concept a little. Something we're going to cover in another chapter. Here we're going to talk about tradition and a very important one, by the way. Guaranític roots do not cease to amaze in these lands and pretend that this will continue during the times to come.
The word payé comes from Guaraní culture . The shaman of the original tribes is also called that, because he is considered a sorcerer, doctor or medium. However, this is one of Paraguay's most conventional and widely used beliefs . At the same time, it is practiced in several regions of our country . Such are the cases of the provinces of Formosa, Entre Ríos, Misiones and , of course, Corrientes . The revealing fact of the issue is that we are referring to a ritual involving magic . It is not worth applying moral criteria here.
Everything revolves around a spell destined to achieve a certain goal and that is made by a healer according to the intended purpose. The reasons can be several and even curious. In this regard, it is done to win someone's heart, avoid dangers, get lucky in the game and enjoy good health. Even, there are those who do it to operate like a bulletproof vest and they don't impact the body of the one who has it.
Likewise, there are more hopeful reasons that involve the conquest of happiness. But grace does not always abound. It is sometimes used to cause unfortunate and incurable diseases in enemies. One of the modalities is to obtain a pledge from the victim, if it is intimate better. Even, they assure that if it was recently used and not washed, the effect would be more effective.
For more benevolent goals, bags are grabbed in which medals of saints are placed. Under this line, if they are blessed by a priest, they will gain more strength. Then stones, bones and prints are added to them, among other things. It should be noted that a very powerful element is the caburei pen, especially when used as a talisman.
The faithful correntinos of the payé have blind faith in this one . To the point that, if the ritual does not work for them as expected, they are attributed to defects in their realization. Or, allude to the fact that the recipient of the spell had a more powerful payé. Therefore, it works as a force that is sent, acquired and much more.
In turn, for the people of Correntino it implies a feeling that generates their land . Which is capable of catching everyone who steps on it. And, as long as she leaves eventually, she's always going to remember her. Aspects that are taken up in chamamé and poetry , with numerous compositions that speak of that longing .
