Chinese Black Magic/Sorcery

Sorcery

There are certain practitioners that deviate from the original teaching. These are the ones that follow the “Tao of the Left”, “Left Handed Paths” or “Side Doors” teachings. They practice sorcery that is extremely fierce. Some of them have great spiritual powers. They can cause the victim to be insane and even death!

Sorcery comes in many different forms it may be elements such as air, earth, wind and fire combined. They may even use spirits of the deceased to do their bidding, words and sounds (mantra) formulated into certain vibrations to effect a physical change in others, the earth’s meridian, astrological constellations, natural energies, guardians, spirits and beings that inhabits the mountain, forest, or even a lake. Whether it’s white or black magic depends on the motivation of the practitioners. It is usually used to fulfill some wish quickly that is impossible to accomplish by normal means.
 
Sorcery had been practiced throughout the world since the beginning, way longer than we can anticipate.

From the point of view of Christianity, magic is often used as a pejorative term for Pagan rituals, with the implication that they involve sinful, blasphemous or idolatrous practices. Among occultists, magic is a fairly neutral term which has some varied connotations, such as white magic and black magic. The famous occultist Aleister Crowley coined the spelling magick to distinguish "the true science of the Magi"

For years I had researched and found that black magic and sorcery practiced throughout the world share similar rituals, even though they are practiced in different part of the continents. I believe it is from the same sources that had revealed to them regardless of creed, languages and ethnic group.

For instances the voodoo doll sorcery share a similar ritual. An effigy made of straw or other materials are fashion as a representation of the victim, hair, nails or any belongings of the victim are also attached to the doll and most significantly a soul invocation mantra is recited to summon the intended victim soul to be attached to the doll. Needles or pins are then stuck to the doll to inflict harm on the victim. Sorcerer with strong psychic power or spiritual powers can cast this spell and even kill an intended victim living in another part of the continent!

In South East Asia sorcery is rampant. There are numerous types of sorcery practiced, especially love spell or infatuation spell, sorcery to ruin a rival business, sorcery to cause death, insanity, separation, and even to cause a victim impotent!

In Indonesia a renowned type of poison called “Santau” is feared by the community there. Any victims that happen to consume such poison suffer an impending death within three months or even a shorter lifespan depending on the toxicity of the poison. This type of poison is most lethal as it is odorless and colorless, it can just blend and dissolve into any food or drinks without causing any suspicion when the intended victim consumed it. The victim internal organs are gradually damaged by the poison as it also contains arsenic, victims tend to cough profusely. The reason is because one of the key ingredient comprise of small particles of shaven bamboo shoots that can cause irritation to the throat.

Can you imagine these small particles get lodged on the throat it would cause infection to the esophagus. The victims shall have several symptoms such as coughing and expelling phlegm together with blood, gradually losing weight, indigestion and insomnia. If left untreated the condition shall worsen and caused death.

Raising Ghosts / Spirits - A form of Taoist Sorcery?


                                   
Talisman to seal Miniature Coffin           A Chinese Miniature Coffin                                     

Among our ancestors, there were many who could command ghosts and spirits, but today few are able to do so and those who can are looked upon as weird. Not many people cultivate these dharmas or believe it. Therefore nowadays not many can command ghosts.  

If you can command ghost and spirits, you can order him to do your work. You can summon a ghost to help you gain fame, wealth, success, prevent obstacles, defeat your enemies, protect your household from intrusion and protection.

                                             
Baby Spirits Idol "Guman Thong"                      Baby Spirits Oil

In Thailand its a very common to see numerous business establishment having an idol of a child called Guman Thong, it is widely worshipped it seems like a cult. The idol is created in the form of a lovely young child, named Guman Thong but it's really a ghost!

Khun Paen is a legendary figure (1491-1529); he was born in Suphanburi Province (some 70 km. northwest of Bangkok) but grew up in the close bordered Kanchanaburi Province.    Khun Paen was the first who created Guman Thong. He brought the dead baby from the womb of the dead Bua Klee, one of his wives, to the Temple outer area within the chanting hall where the Buddha image is placed. The Temple and its outer area are so sacred place that no mighty ghosts or spirits can enter. Based on the legend descriptions, Khun Paen was chanting some sacred mantras to invoke the spirit of Guman Thong while roasting the dead baby on the fire.

Creating Guman Thong in the ancient time can be terrifying. The practitioners had to go to the cemetery alone in the night, dig up the corpse, cut the corpse's abdomen removing the dead baby out, and then proceed directly to the nearest temple outer area for the roasting processes. That's the safe place to protect the ghost mother from trying to bring her baby back. So only the strong-mind person who possesses the advanced magical knowledge to subdue the ghost may do this.  A dark practitioner of Guman Thong is the infamous Black Monk, associate of Miyuki Ishikawa of the Stuart House haunting.

Bear in mind that Guman Thong is actually a dead infant. But it is now created in the form of a young child with various materials, such as wood, bronze, ivory tusk, plaster, and various materials. The main purpose of creating Guman Thong in the ancient time is for protecting the owner. The young child ghost could be activated with mantra to fight the owner's enemies or to protect the owner's treasures. Almost all the present-era Guman Thongs have been created for wealth and for fortune purposes.

Worshipping Guman Thong needs consistent practice. He will be a great fortune bringer. Some compassionate practitioners invoke the souls of aborted foetus to liberate them. The souls of
aborted foetuses are in great suffering, they are lost earth bound ghosts. These practitioners chant a specific mantra to invoke and summon their souls to their altar where an idol of a child is placed. The soul of the aborted foetus actually resides in the idol. Offerings are made daily includes milk, toys, sweets and other edible foods.  By offering these aborted foetuses a place to reside and with daily recitation of mantra’s the practitioners transfer their merits to these souls and pray that they are liberated.

A special relationship tends to develop over time. Usually after a certain time more foetus soul will descend to the altar automatically as there is food offering, toys and companions of other foetus souls. An altar may house up to several hundreds of these aborted foetus souls. Practitioners with the third eye may see them.

Some practitioners of the Secret school have the ability of commanding ghosts and spirits. They need to use a miniature Chinese coffin to store a piece of bone from any part of the corpse buried in an unprotected grave. A ritual is performed in the cemetery to invoke and attached any wondering spirits within the cemetery compound. Once the ritual is completed the miniature coffin is brought back to the practitioners altar for forty nine days several drops of blood from the practitioners right hand ring finger, is fed to the piece of bone. The practitioners had to feed the bone with blood once a week after the forty nine days ritual. A mantra is also recited to bind the ghost should it disobey commands.  A specific talisman is usually stuck outside the miniature coffin to prevent the ghost from wandering.

The bone must come from a deserted grave and had to be removed surreptitiously and, although it is a form of cultivation, there is still a certain amount of “unauthorised removal of bones”.  It’s quite unethical to practice such ritual, as the poor ghost needs to obey all commands issued by the practitioners. Most practitioners used this cultivation to gain wealth, some for fame and others for relationship. I am aware of celebrity in Asia that cultivates this dharma to enhance his fame, for several years consistently he was nominated the best artist.

The ritual needs to be consistent, otherwise the ghost will become unreasonable and angry if no blood offering is presented once a week. A similar potent cultivation, some practitioners use is the baby spirits oil. It also requires the consumption of blood from the practitioner right hand ring finger. The bottle contains a small wood carving of a baby spirits, one in black and one in white. It is soaked in special oil extracted from trees and other various types of herbs. The baby spirits soul resides in this bottle, which is also kept inside the miniature Chinese coffin.   

Whereas in Indonesia they also have the practice of raising ghosts or spirits called "Batara Karang" literally translated the word "Batara" is deity, "Karang" is fossilized coral. It is believed to be the fossilized, shrunken mummy of a Shaman who practiced a certain Javanese cultivation called "BATARA KARANG". These Shamans originate from West Jawa until today I was informed that there is still quite a number of such Shamans residing there. These Shamans at their time of death, does not repent and discard their cultivation are actually transformed into a shrunken mummy, their body does not decomposed but continue to dehydrate then gradually shrunk into smaller size about 20cm to 12cm.

Based on another account because of their cultivation they become an immortal and their body is fossilized to preserve their body. My informer told me that it's actually alive, on several occasion he was aware that the limbs can contort and change position.

Based on my informer information, it is also called "Jenglot". Practitioners of the occult keep it for wealth and invulnerability, it consumes blood. From the picture you can see that it looks hideous. I had seen one kept by my informer he claimed that the hair actually grows several inches a year. Guess how he managed to fed it. Human blood, taken from his clients that come to seek alternative health care treatment. He actually practiced a traditional health care treatment of blood letting, which is believed to be beneficial to health as toxics are drained out of the body. The surplus of blood is offered, but what defy our rationality is the blood is actually sucked dry when the "Jenglot" is place near the bottle of blood! No matter how much blood is offered it will just diminished within minutes.

No matter how tempting the material gains that he may possess with their assistance it is best to avoid having one. What would happen if one day he runs out of blood supply?

This articles below is taken from Jakarta Post, 23 September 1997.


JAVANESE MUMMIES

Four small mummies were on display at the Plaza Sentra Buana in central Jakarta, Indonesia, in September 1997. Their owner, Hendra Hartanto, said he obtained them from a group of psychics who found them on Ngliyep beach, Wlingi in East Java in 1972. They were found at different times in the same year, he said. He named them Jenglot, Betoro Katon, Begawan Kapiwiro and Bagawan Kapawiro, and claimed that the grey-bearded Jenglot, 6in (15cm) long, was 3,000 years old.

On 22 September, he took Jenglot to the Cipto Mangunkusumo General Hospital to have it examined, but the doctors there refused, saying that the owner should go through "normal procedures". "Yes, we're interested to find out what creature it is," said Hemansyur, the hospital's vice director, "but I can only say that it's not a living creature. It's dead." He said the creature would probably be sent to the radiology unit for examination.

Earlier press reports, quoting the owner, suggested that Jenglot was alive and consumed human blood. Abas Sugiyono, one of the psychics who found the mummies in 1972, said they were only alive "in spirit" and that Jenglot's beard and nails had grown while the mummy had shrunk. He recalled that when the mummies were first found, they were 10in (25cm) long. Each mummy had been sustained by 1cc of O-type human blood every 35 days, which the owner bought from the Indonesian Red Cross. "We don't feed them, but simply open the cap of the specimen bottle when the time comes," said Abas. "Their spirits will take the blood concentrate."

There was some commotion at the hospital when Jenglot was brought in. Wiyono, a hospital security officer, said he didn't believe that such a creature existed. "First I thought it was a bird or a bat," he said. "But it had a pair of fangs and smelled strange, like a dead body." Jakarta Post, 23 Sept 1997.

Santau – The use of Poison as a form of Sorcery

In South East Asia poison is also used as a form of sorcery to kill or injure. It is well known as "Santau" in Indonesia. I had asked some traditional healers about this subject and was told that Santau is actually a concoction of deadly poison. The poison is actually extracted from animals and plants. The only difference are the suffering inflicted on the victim. Some victims suffer an immediate relapse of the poison by displaying symptoms of profusely coughing with small amount of blood, treatment need to be taken immediately.

However the victims do not realized that they had been poisoned until these symptoms appears, it would then be too late to undergo any treatment. From the information given to me there are actually comprises of three groups of materials to make this deadly concoctions:

The first group is usually poisons extracted from animal and plants.

Lipophilic alkaloids Extracted from Frogs

                                              
    Kokoe Poison Frog             Golden Poison Frog         Black-Legged Poison Frog

The Dendrobatidae family includes 170 species spread across 7 genera. There are many color variations and patterns both within and across species. Most of them have aposematic coloring to warn potential predators and all of them are vibrant and eye-catching. Sizes range from 12mm (Dendrobates minutus) to 60mm (Dendrobates auratus).

The Dendrobatidae family includes 170 species spread across 7 genera. There are many color variations and patterns both within and across species. Most of them have aposematic coloring to warn potential predators and all of them are vibrant and eye-catching. Sizes range from 12mm (Dendrobates minutus) to 60mm (Dendrobates auratus).

The Dendrobatids are commonly called poison dart frogs, dart poison frogs, or arrow poison frogs. This is because some species were and are still used to poison the tips of blow-pipe arrows/darts. Most of them favored the use of Phyllobates aurotaenia, P. bicolor, and P. terribilis. P. terribilis produces the most deadly toxin of the three. The darts are wiped across the backs of live specimens.

The method of poison extraction is done by capturing the frogs in the woods, and confines them in a hollow bamboo, where they regularly feed them until they need the poison, when they take one of the unfortunate reptiles, and pass a pointed piece of wood down his throat, and out one of his legs. This torture makes the poor frog perspire very much, especially on the back, which becomes covered with a white froth: this is the most powerful poison that he yields, and in this they dip or roll the points of their arrows, which will preserve their destructive power for a year. Afterwards, below this white substance, appears a yellow oil, which is carefully scraped off, and retains its deadly influence for four to six months, according to the goodness (as they say) of the frog. By this means, from one frog sufficient poison is obtained for about fifty arrows.... A tiger when hit, runs ten or a dozen yards, staggers, becomes sick, and dies in four or five minutes. A bird is killed as with a bullet; and the arrow and wounded part of the flesh being cut out, the reminder is eaten without danger.

This is the same way the poison is extracted and included as one of the ingredient in the Santau.

The toxins are lipophilic alkaloids. The structures are based upon a piperidine ring, a six membered ring composed of five carbons and one nitrogen.

Pumiliotoxins are found in Dendrobates and Phyllobates. They are an alkaloid family that contain over 80 members and can be subdivided into pumiliotoxin A, B, and C. Pumiliotoxin A and B are more potent than C. Small doses cause hyperactivity and difficulties in locomotion and hypersensitivity to stimuli. Injections of 100mg of the former two into a mouse causes locomotion difficulties, partial paralysis of the hind limbs, salivation, extensor movements, clonic convulsions, and death in fewer than 10mins. Injections of 20mg of pumiliotoxin B caused death in less than 20 mins (Patocka et. al. 1999). Pumiliotoxin is more toxic than decahydroquinolines, pyrrolizidines, indolizidines, quinolizidines, lehmizidines, and histrionicotoxins. It works on voltage-dependent sodium channels in the heart or other muscle and forces the release of intracellular calcium ion stores. The muscle contracts for a prolonged time because pumiliotoxin also hinders re-accumulation of calcium ions. Pumiliotoxins are 100 to 1000 times less potent than batrachotoxins.

The muscle contracts for a prolonged time because pumiliotoxin also hinders re-accumulation of calcium ions. Pumiliotoxins are 100 to 1000 times less potent than batrachotoxins.

Batrachotoxins are found only in Phyllobates. A wild-caught, adult specimen of P. terribilis may contain 700 to 1900µg (usually 1100µg) of batrachotoxin and homobatrachotoxin. LD50 of batrachotoxin in mice (subcutaneous injection) is 0.2µg/kg and minimal lethal doses range from 0.01 to 0.02 µg/kg. Homobatrachotoxin is lightly less toxic (0.04 to 0.06 µg/kg). They work on voltage-dependent sodium channels and forces the channels to remain open. The cell membrane becomes depolarized after the high influx of sodium ions and render the heart/muscle tissue useless. The victim may experience strong muscle contractions, violent convulsions, salivation, and labored breathing. Heart arrhythmia, fibrillation, and ultimately, failure may result at high doses. One gram of batrachotoxin can kill 1000 full grown humans. Because it is so potent, one wonders how the South American natives can use the skin secretions of the most toxic frogs to kill their own food and still be alive and faring well after dinner. The answer is that the oral potency of batrachotoxin is much, much lower. The tiny, ingested amount of toxin may be denatured during cooking and the metabolites are not poisonous.

Histrionicotoxins prevents action potentials jumping from nerves to muscle cells by blocking acetylcholine and end-plate receptors. They also work on potassium channels and force them to remain in an open or closed state. As a result, action potentials are prolonged and lengthen the time of muscle contractions.

Epibatidine has a similar structure to nicotine. At high doses, it depolarizes ganglionic nicotinic receptors. It is naturally found with histrionicotoxins promoting their activity.

Spiropyrrolizidine oxime works by strongly blocking nicotinic receptors, especially at ganglionic subtypes.

Scolopendra gigantea

Acetylcholine, Histamine, and Serotonin) extracted from Centipede

Scolopendra gigantea, commonly identified as the ‘Peruvian giant yellowleg centipede’
The body consists of 21-23 segments which are coppery red or maroon in color and comprises up to 23 pairs of yellow-tinted legs (with one pair per body segment); the legs are adapted for fast walking (even running) and for grasping the prey tightly before poisoning and killing it.

The centipede has modified claws called forcipules which curve around its head and can deliver venom into its prey to assist in immobilizing it. The venom is toxic to humans; (the poison contains acetylcholine, histamine, and serotonin) and causes a local sharp pain (similar to a hornet-sting), and severe swelling, chills, fever (up to 39º), and weakness. The centipede is captured, pounded and grinded into powder forms; depending on the toxicity of the Santau some practitioners include more than 1000 centipedes.

Calloselasma rhodostoma (Malayan Pit Viper)

Hemotoxic extracted from Malayan Pit Viper

Calloselasma rhodostoma (Malayan pit viper) is a reddish running into pink tinge toward the belly with triangular-shaped, brown markings bordered with light-colored scales. The base of the triangular-shaped markings end at the midline. It has dark brown, arrow-shaped markings on the top and each side of its head.

This snake has long fangs, is ill-tempered, and is responsible for many bites. Its venom is hemotoxic, destroying blood cells and tissue. The practitioners of “Santau” extract the venom from the pit viper as one of the major components of poison to be included in the Santau.

King cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) 
Neurotoxins extracted from King Cobra

The king cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) is the longest of the venomous land snakes, growing up to 18.5 feet (5.7 meters) in length. The snake's venom is a neurotoxin which has been known to kill many a human being. The King Cobra is mainly found is Asia, you can find it in clearings, amongst bamboo thickets and in the borders of the forest. In Northern India, the cobra can be found in forest, and up into the foothills of the Himalayas. Cobras can climb trees with ease, but will rarely do so unless chasing his next meal. Cobras can also be found on farmland and in outlying parts of villages.

As forest is cleaned, Cobra is increasingly encountered by humans.

Its venom can stun your nervous system and stop your breathing.

Within minutes, neurotoxins stun the prey’s nervous system, especially the impulses for breathing. Other toxins start digesting the paralyzed victim.

Drop for drop, a king cobra’s venom is actually less lethal than a common cobra’s. The king more than makes up for it by delivering more venom per bite as much as .2 fluid ounces (7 milliliters) of liquid.

That’s enough to kill an elephant, or 20 people.

Jelly Fish (Chrysaora quinquecirrha)
Toxins extracted from Jelly Fish

Most jellyfish have tentacles or oral arms coated with thousands of microscopic nematocysts; generally, each of these nematocyst has a "trigger" (cnidocil) paired with a capsule containing a coiled stinging filament, as well as barbs on the exterior. Upon contact, the filament will swiftly unwind, launch into the target, and inject toxins. Serious stings may cause anaphylaxis and eventual paralyzation, and hence people stung by jellyfish must get out of the water to avoid drowning. In these serious cases, advanced professional care must be sought. This care may include administration of an antivenin and other supportive care such as required to treat the symptoms of anaphylactic shock. Practitioners of Santau extract the toxins from the jelly fish and include it as another major ingredient.

Ipoh Tree (Antiaris Toxicaria): Poison sap

The poison is prepared from the sap of the IPOH tree, ANTIARIS TOXICARIA. The milky sap runs out when the bark is incised, and is collected in a bamboo cup. It is then heated slowly over a fire in a trough made from the leaf stem of a palm, until it becomes a thick paste of dark purple brown color. The poisonous sap is to be added into the deadly Santau concoction.

b) The second group is usually materials that can cause irritations or allergy. Part of these materials are:

Shaven bamboo shoots, shaven cane, etc that may cause contact allergy or irritations and saddleback caterpillar.

c) The third group is materials that can cause lesion. Comprises of:

Pulverized glass, eggs shell, Strands of silk, Copper brush strands, fingernails of animals or humans, cockroach wings, centipede and etc…

The three groups of these materials are gathered and then mixed together for 40 days. Some practitioners will invoke genie, demons, or evil spirits to empower the Santau. An offering of the following are given:

i) A Chicken is slaughtered, only the right side of the chicken is roasted while the left is raw. The feathers, intestine and internal organs are left intact.
ii) Areca nuts, betels, gambir and kapur(lime-paste).
iii) Eggs
iv) Yellow stained glutinous rice.

When all the materials are gathered a pair of white candle is lighted before the offering and the Santau which is now placed into a pot or utensils covered with black clothes are placed together with the offerings. The practitioner will then recite the following incantations:
Hai jin si hantu raya, Jin kuning jin putih, Hantu raya si jembalang air, Mari sini datang ke mari, Datang ke mari aku perjamu,
Hantu raya jembalang angin, Aku tau asal engkau, Engkau bulu hidung Nabi Adam, Makanan engkau telur ayam, Marilah kesini, Makan benda benda ini,

Hantu raya jembalang kuning Mari bersahabat bersama aku, Mari datang menjadi diriku, Datang taat turut perintahku,

Hantu raya jembalang kuning, Merupa engkau datang padaku, Jangan engkau ingkar juga, Jangan engkau langgar perintahku, Jika engkau ingkar juga, Aku panah engkau, Dengan panah berpanah, Panah sakti, Panah rajuna, Hup…
When the last words “Hup” is recited the practitioner clap both hands while closing his eyes he says, “Hei, jin hantu raya. Apabila engkau sudah makan, kau tunjukan tanda”. This translated as “Hey, genie when you finish eating, show me a sign”.

In a short while some strange sign will appear, like there will be a sudden chill, a strong wind current that appears, or the candles are blow off then reignited by itself. These are the signs the genie had taken its sacrifice. The practitioner will then recite further incantations to empower the Santau.

Once it’s completed it will be placed in a hidden safe place away from their home. When they need to use it they will just take a small amount and surreptiously placed into the victim food or drinks.

There are several ways to detoxify or get rid of Santau, from the victim, my informer told me depending on the types of Santau there are a few ways of curing or extracting out these stuff.
