Religion is a complex of representations and the actions of the person connected with concepts about meaning of the life and belief in supernatural, in an opportunity of continuation of existence of human soul after death. In traditional understanding the religion includes also belief in the powerful essences, not submitting to usual rules of human behaviour, eternal and uniquitous. Whether it is possible to distinguish religion from magic? One ethnographer has written: "Every in own way defines differences of magic from religion, but till now anybody yet did not manage to find such definition which other scientists because actually thecontents of the representations underlying religion and magic, is close intertwine" would accept all; [Clakhon, 1953, p. 518]. In other words, definitions are difficult, because there is an intermediate zone where both spheres - the religion and magic - block each other. However in a lot of cases we can speak about them as about the independent phenomena.


On one pole, by traditional definitions, there are magics or its those kinds which do not mean participation of spirits and are not connected with precise representations about superhuman force or about power of the person using magic. The magic in narrow sense or in the pure state is more or less separate actions which have been not connected with wide system of beliefs and ceremonies.


On other pole there is a religion representing systematized set of beliefs and ceremonies (which can include or not include belief in afterlife) and the special attitude to the supernatural essences operating forces of the nature and area supernatural. Between magic and religion there is no exact side which is spent in definitions of Durkgame [1915-1954] and of some other scientists; though the magic also is not an integral part of religion, in many cases they are inseparable.
