urtarangalienable nounEnglishspirit type; demonTok PisindewelThere are two points of view about this term. Some use it as the generic term for all kinds of evil spirits. This can be defined as an evil spirit or demon, although the Sursurunga New Testament uses the even more generic term sápkin_ tanián (bad spirit) for demon and evil spirit. An urtarang causes people to act crazy, similiar to those actions described in the Bible. Some disagree with the above, saying that an urtarang is instead the spirit of a person who has died. The belief is that spirits of people who have died enter into living people and cause them to have convulsions and do other abnormal things.kápán urtarangtesit4.3.9.1Customanthro
