yeeb ceeb

by Micha F. Lindemans

The dark world of the spirits in Hmong belief. It corresponds to the Chinese world of yin. The Otherworld, comprising of yeeb ceeb and yaj ceeb (the world of men), is closely modeled on the Chinese Otherworld. The Hmong believe that long ago men and spirits could meet and talk to each other and that passing between the two worlds was much easier. After the worlds became divided only a txiv neeb, a shaman, can safely venture into the Otherworld.
