The article argues that the extended and alternate truth in the form of superior reality is but inevitable. The human world progresses with the loss of enchanting aspects of human existence in the midst of rational thinking but the relationship between logic and superstition is indispensable. A path-breaking analysis of such influences could be found in the occult tradition of Shamanism inthe Nepali community. The Shamans act as a visible link to the invisible distant future personifying ideas of superior reality. The Shamans are representatives of the power of magic which resides within human beings and incites them to act. Criticised for making us view what does not exist in the physical plane, they provide a transformation in viewing the reality. Under their impact one moves from unknown to understanding and from disconnection to compassion. This paper attempts to highlight the Shamans allegiance to the extended truth existing in an unpublished form. It would also highlight the enchanting nature of their prophecies which is delivered in dreams and above waking consciousness. In fact, the paper would be an attempt to unite to an unlettered, unpublished manuscript of superior order existing in oral form and woven in the skin or in other words taught in the womb with no formal writer as if the destiny of the chosen clan is the writer.
