The Secret Of Dense Bamboo (Buluh Tumpat)
There is a lot of information about buluh tumpat in the net.
Dense bamboo is a type of bamboo with solid stem compared to
the hollow stem of ordinary bamboo. This type of bamboo can be found in
Malaysian jungle. Scientifically it is known as Gigantochloa Ligulata. This type
of bamboo is believed to have mysterious power for personal protection
especially in the jungle.
Believers also say that not only a dense bamboo is good for
personal protection; it can be used to suck out poison injected by animals and
insects. A dense bamboo is also used to cure ‘santau’ as this type of black
magic uses the hair of ordinary bamboo as medium. It is also believed that no
poisonous creature dares to approach the person if he or she wears a section of
solid bamboo as an amulet.
On the other hand, dense bamboo is just like any other
bamboo and can be used for many mundane applications such as furniture
production, prayer beads, agricultural plant supports, traditional toys etc.
