Welcome to the first bosnian forum dedicated to esotery and magic!
The expressions for magic or spells in Bosnia are sihir, čarka or manđija. We are all familiar that the word magic comes from the Persian word Magi which was used to refer to the priests of the old Iranian religion, however what most of us do not know is that the Bosnian word čarati i.e. practice magic or čarka also comes from the Persian word "čare" i.e. "remedy, salvation, means". For the one who practices magic it is said that he is "da manđija", "čara" while for the victim it is said "učinili mu sihr", "opsihrovan je", "obenđijan". In the north-western part of Bosnia the expression are as follows: "neko ti gradi čarke!", "neko ti je svario grah!", "napravito mu je!", "neko ti je zapreć'o grah!" or "neko ti je zapiš'o grah!" etc.
