August 1st celebration of the Pachamama

August 1st celebration of the Pachamama

The spirituality of the Andean peoples is manifested again in a cry of thanks to Mother Earth, recreator and giver of life ...

The central ritual to the Pachamama is the challa or pago. Among the offerings that are made to the Earth in its day are coca leaves, alcohol, cigarettes, food, chicha and even incense is lit to drive away the evils that want to attack it. In the meantime, a circle is formed in which believers hold hands and say prayers.

Many people spend this day cleaning their homes, smoking them, and then offering the earth the first serving of the best food they can make.
