"Inin Niwe y el Mundo Puro de los Seres Eternos" is a visionary and poetic story that is based mainly on the ancestral narratives of the Shipibo-Konibo people of the Peruvian Amazon, on their medicinal knowledge and on the initiation processes of the ancient Meraya sages (enlightened doctors). Also, although to a lesser extent, in the stories of other Amazonian nations.
The narrative tells the adventures of Inin Niwe, a young man who, after an unexpected and fantastic event, is abandoned in the jungle, far from his family and with no one to advise and protect him; Since then, he has to undertake a process of learning and initiation in the ways of the ancestors in which he will receive the help and teaching of various spiritual beings of the forest.
These will be the ones who will give him strength and wisdom so that he can defeat the hostile enemies that torment humanity. When he completes the process, Inin will become an enlightened sage, similar to the ancients, and his wisdom will benefit all living things.
