Ordonism (Narangol: Gereltsenzam lit. "illuminated way" or Ordonuud Shashin lit. "religion of the gods") is a Selengerian religion and way of life. While it has undergone considerable changes, Ordonism has been practised by the Narangol and their subjects since at least the beginning of record history. In the earliest known stages, it was intricately tied to all other aspects of social life and to the tribal organisation of Narangol society. As the Narangol incorporated new peoples and new religions into their empire, it has become influenced by and mingled with other folk traditions, Xuanism, and the Akitei religion.

Kheregsuuruud[edit | edit source]

According to Ordonist belief, the souls of an entire house are bound together through a holy stone called a Kheregsuur. The stones are believed to house a Nudeer Uzegch or Template:WP of Umai who serves as the guardian and guide to the family in both the spirit and physical worlds. The importance of a house's kheregsuur is so critical that theft or destruction of the stone is believed to damn a house to oblivion and an eternity of torment.

Kheregsuurs vary in size and shape but are typically made of polished volcanic rock - frequently obsidian.
