The BIRMAN LEGEND

 

THE LEGEND: In a temple built on the sides of Mount Lugh, there lived in prayer the very holy Kittah Mun-Ha, the one which the God, Song Hio himself, has braided his golden beard. His whole life was dedicated to the adoration, contemplation, and holy services of Tsun Kyan-Kse, the Goddess with the sapphire blue eyes, who presided over the tramsmigation of souls, the one who permits the Kittahs to live again in a holy animal for the duration of it's animal existence, before once again joining with a haloed body with the full and holy perfection of the great priests.

Near him, Sihn sat meditating. Sihn was a dear oracle, an all-white cat whose eyes were yellow from the reflection of the golden whiskers of his master, and from the golden body of the Goddess with the heavenly eyes. Sihn, the cat to advise, whose ears, nose, tail and extremities of his legs were dark like the color of the earth, mark of the stain and impurity of all that touches or can touch the ground.

One night, raiders attacked the temple, and Mun-Ha was mortally wounded. At the moment of the Mun-Ha's death, Sihn placed his feet on his master, and faced the Goddess. That is when the miraculous transformation took place. Sinh's white fur took on a golden glow, reflecting the golden goddess. His eyes became as blue as hers. His face, ears, legs and tail remained the brown of the earth, but his four paws, touching the white hair of his beloved master, became pure white - a symbol of purity. The other priests watched the transformation in awe, and were inspired to fend off the attackers.

Seven days later, Sihn died, taking the soul of Mun-Ha to paradise. And when seven days later, the assembles priests consulted before the statue to decide on the succession of Mun-Ha, all the cats of the temple ran up. All were dressed in gold with white gloves and all their eyes had changed from golden, to the beautiful sapphire blue of the goddess. In complete silence they surrounded the youngest of the Kittahs, thus the reincarnated ancestors were designated by the will of the Goddess. The legend states that each Sacred Cat carries the soul of a priest on its final journey to paradise.
