Abstract

The article is aimed at revealing the essence of the ritual in the traditional culture through the concepts "time" and "timeliness". Time in the traditional culture is in the form of the ritual, it marks the time ritual in traditional society. The ritual action includes the past, present and future. The ritual is always oriented to the future with the past in the present (ritual action). Thus, the ritual is a meta action. The idea of time as a purposeful activity in the traditional culture is directly related to the ritual. In the traditional culture all the achieved is ritualized. Time in the ritual appears as ‘timeliness’ targeted to socially significant actions. All contents of the ritual are a certain model of action intended to the result. Therefore, the ritual in traditional culture is treated as a ‘timeliness’ action, an orderly and harmonious equilibrium restoring the entire ethnic culture.
