Myths about Ban Jhakri Falls
A Ban Jhakri is a mythical man and has been talked about only in folktales within the Nepali Community in Sikkim. He was the first Jhakri or Shaman to acquire the power of mastering the evil spirits from the Gods. According to these folktales, Ban Jhakri used to dwell in the forest and lived in rock caves worshiping spirits. He used to take small children to forests to teach Banjhakri ways. After the training, the boys themselves became ‘Jhakris’ being able to cure anybody affected by evil spirits. While the male ‘Jhakris’ always protected human beings, the folklore says that their wives ‘Jhakrinis’ were evil spirits themselves and would eat up human beings.
