Their creator God Isten controlled the thunders and the wind and the fates of men from the sky. He would send thunders as his warnings.
It’s very peculiar and vibes with Zoroastrianism that Isten created the world in cooperation with the god of Evil or the Hungarian devil – Ordog who created everything bad in the world, such as insects and poisons.
They also had other feminine deities in between such as Mother God and Blessed/Merry Lady or the war commander Hadur.
Hungarians thought that the sky was a big tent and the Tree of Life was its pole. The holes in the tent’s ceiling allowed the celestial light bodies to shine to the world.
They thought of the human soul as something immortal.
Different kinds of spirits such as Wind mothers and Wind kings as well as dragons also inhabited the Middle world.
Taltoses were believed to be able to communicate with elves, goblins, dwarves, giants in the mountains, as well as with the fairies – gorgeous, playful virgins that fulfilled wishes.
The opposite of Taltoses were the babak – old women of tremendous power that they feared. It bears striking resemblance with the Slavic baba Yaga.
Now Taltose’s role in society was to climb the World Tree, face the demons and bring back the treasure of knowledge to the people.
They did that trough rejtezes, a form of controlled ecstasy in which the tetejetlen fa (tree without a top) reveals the glory of the world to them.
The other roles of Hungarian shamans were fortune-telling, finding lost items, affecting the weather, healing with herbs, etc., but them climbing the World tree is something indigenous.
It relates Hungarian shamanism to the Norse mythology rather than the Slavic elements and begs the question of their mysterious origin.
