About Breaking Kong Tau (泰式解降)
Kong Tau is
very much feared of in SEA regions. There are many types of Kong Tau, only two
types need releasing or breaking: the Love Kong and the Black Kong. Different schools
use different methods, although all magical schools have various methods for
breaking Kong Tau; the best way to break a Thai Kong Tau is through Thai methods.
If other methods are involved, it is feared that the Kong Tau cannot be
uprooted hence leaving residue Kong that will create more problems.
of the Kong Tau, the Ghost Kong and Love Kong are the easiest to be gotten rid
of. While to the other extreme, the most difficult to get rid of is the Gu (蠱) or Santau that uses physical germs or poisons.
there are three ways of going about in breaking Kong Tau:
·The mild method (文法)
oFlower bath: 5 flowers, 7 flowers or 9 flowers
oChicken egg (good for Gu also)
oPrayer beads (佛珠斬降)
method (for Ghost Kong only)
oUsing Maikru or ritual staff
oUsing holy water
oUsing oil lamp
oUsing magic knife or machete
The basic procedure is general
for breaking common Kong Tau, but not for the Gu (蠱) sufferers. The proper identification of what type
of black magic is important as a mistake will not only harm the victim but also
the master himself:
·Perform prayer to
Buddha, gods, guardian spirits and Kurba Archan.
·Sealing Body (封身).
5, 7 or 9 types depending on the severity.
needed: lime, white cloth, empowered candles, coconuts
·When it is ready,
the master will start chanting and splashing the holy water onto the victim.
·If the attack
persisted during the ritual, then return Kong Tao to the sender. This condition
is only valid if the Kong Tao is less than 6 months. Otherwise, returning
whatever doing regardless of the condition of the victim will kill the victim.
the ritual, needles and other foreign stuffs can be found on the floor but not
·Everything will be
picked up and disposed of by throwing into river or sea. Be careful not to step
over any foreign objects.
When it is suspected that
Gu is present, or the opponent is very persistent; than a more forceful method
must be used to break up the attack and to force any foreign objects to come
out from the victim’s body. One example I can think of is using blessed prayer
beads and egg rituals. Basic procedure is as follows:
·As before, prayers
must be made to Buddha, gods, guardian spirits and Kurba Archan.
·After that the
victim’s body is sealed.
·Than Yants or Thai
sacred scripts are drawn on the victim’s body, especially on the back while
chanting Na Mo Put Tat Yak mantras. At the end of each writings, the prayer
beads are used to push from bottom up till the victim’s nape. This action is
repeated several times until a reaction such as vomiting is obtained.
victim may vomit out foreign objects such as worms or insects, and the master must
pick up some of these worms, chew and swallow them while chanting the mantra.
This is to destroy the eggs of the worms and to prevent the Gu from returning.
·The whole process
is repeated until the Gu is cleared off from the victim’s body.
·At the end of the
ritual, the forehead of the victim is sealed with more sacred scripts and a
glass of blessed water is given to the victim.
treatment will be using egg to roll over the victim’s body to remove residue
·Depending on the
severity, this process may be repeated several times.
There are certainly many
other methods available out there. Due to my limited exposure, I can only
discuss a limited number of common methods available out there. My purpose is
to raise the awareness that care must be taken on treating Kong Tau victims.
Not all Kong Tau are created equal, hence the treatments also varies.
