Siama Kâur (Divine way)

Siamaka The Poku Saeruo Degonjo are monotheistic, with their religion dating back before the Norka (The Exodus). Their religion is Siama Kâur, pronounced sēămă kāūr, meaning divine path or way. Their belief is that the universe is a universal consciousness and can intercede, or interfere according to its grand design. The term they use to describe this consciousness is Siamaka or the Great Divine.

The Poku'vonai believe in an afterlife where the universe judges their lives. This determines how soon a soul can be reborn, and where it will be sent. The Poku'vonai revere their ancestors and often ask them to intercede on their behalf with the universe. The Detis Goa'ai Jael (Faith Walkers Sect) teach and minister to the people.

While all Poku'vonai are schooled in the teachings regarding Siamaka (sēă-mă-kă); this does not mean that every one of them are devout. However, because rituals are an important facet of the society, those who do not believe will follow the Devotopai (Rituals) in public. The break down for believers is roughly 75% devout, 20% casual, 5% non-believers.

When they arrived at their new home the Degonjo Saeruo (Hidden Sun System) was immediately considered a direct conduit to the universal consciousness, because it head lead them to their new home. It is believed by some of the clergy that the universal consciousness communicates to the Poku'vonai by emissions from the star. This resulted in a small sub-sect in the Detis Goa'ai Jael who devote their lives to deciphering the messages from the Degonjo Saeruo or as the Sae Fuâmy'ai (săě fūāmī-ăē) star watchers call it the Ida Siamaka God's Eye.

Temples

Every Ruoka (House) will have a large temple for use by the members. Detis Goa'ai tend to the operation of the temple. If thre are no Detis Goa'ai within the Ruoka the Detis Goa'ai Jael will proved persons.

Most Poku'vonai Punla (Family) homes have a temple for meditation, and daily Devotopai (Rituals) in the main house. These unlike the formal temples are maintained by the Punla.

All Poku Saeruo Degonjo vessels regardless of size will have some sort of temple on board. See Siama Ruo'sa (Divine Room).
