abstract
The Yi people in China conduct a magnificent funeral for the dead in which the Bi-mo, or the priest, recites Zilu-jing. Throughthis supra they see off the soul back along the believed ancestral migration route to Zizipow, their place of origin. The teaching ofZilu-jing is essentially to guide the souls of the dead, but at the same time it induces the spirits of the living people attending thefuneral too to escort the souls of the dead to their place of origin, where the spirits of the living people part from the souls of thedead and then are brought back to their place of living Through this experience the people of the Yi vividly learn their ethnicmigration history by retrieving their ancestors migration route recalled in Zilu-jin.All the versions of Zilu-jing handed down invarious places refer to Zizipow, Apudumu the Founder, and the ethnic migration route of the six ancestors.It means that the con-tents of Zilu-jing constitute a very significant part in making the ethnic identity of the Yi, though they have been dispersed to dateand thus formed no durable unified government.
