Curse Of The ‘Heavenly Hole’ (天坑鎮)
Guess I better put a picture here before people think of something else...
of the ‘hole’ is one of the Lu Pan Sorcery spell (魯班術)once very popular amongst the old artisans in China and Vietnam. It is
very easy for a person to cast this spell, more so if this person is an artisan
employed to carry out the renovation of a house.
person who wants to cast this spell must dig a hole in front of the target’s
main door; or on the road that the person will be passing daily. After that,
this person must get 9 pieces of yellow paper and write the target’s name on
each piece of paper. Then he will also need to get hold a ceramic bowl and
inscribe the ‘five thunder talisman’ with cinnabar in the bowl.
Now the 9
pieces of yellow papers are stacked together and put into the hole with the
name face up and the ceramic bowl is cupped over the paper and then a piece of
brick or stone inscribed with ‘Tai San’ talisman (泰山) will be put
on top of the bowl. After that, the person will perform a round of soul
catching incantations and then the whole assembly is buried.
soul is said to be ‘sucked’ under the bowl and crushed by the Tai Mountain once
he or she steps over the ritual implements. This person will fall sick and may
die after 100 days if his or her soul fails to return to the body.
It is not

and then burn off the 9 pieces of yellow paper inscribed with victim’s name.
The difficult part is to get the culprit to admit his or her wrong doing and
get him or she to pin point the exact location. So, older folks refrain from
