The Singphos are Buddhist and are followers of Buddhism. They celebrate Songken, a Buddhist festival in the month of April. On the other hand, they have not given up their shamanistic beliefs. A number of spirits are considered as malevolent and responsible for causing miseries to human being and therefore such spirits (Nats) are worshipped on a number of occasions such as Ningsenat, Multung-Dingna, Cit hungnat, Natkum, Mainat etc by sacrificing bulls, pigs, cows and chickens.
