The Nats are god-like spirits venerated in Myanmar and neighbor countries in conjunction with Buddhism. They are divided between the 37 Great Nats who were designated that status by King Anawrahta when he formalized the official list of nats. Much like sainthood, nats can be designated for a variety of reasons. It is among the Theravada Buddhist Bamar that the most highly developed form of ceremony and ritual is seen.
