Invocation Of A Kid (请童子)
Master template of Liuren
Invocation of a kid is a direct translation of “请童子”. It is special part of
Taoist invulnerability school magic. These types of schools perhaps refer to
Liuren School (六壬神功) and
Jinyin Cult (金英教) now
days. Invocation of kids is almost similar to that of folk spirit mediums (降童). When a medium is possessed
by spirits, he/she can be either conscious or unconscious. Likewise happens when
a ‘kid’ possessed the body of a practitioner.
Whoever wanted to perform ‘kid invocation’, he must first go
through the initiation ritual (过教).
A beginner should begin his/her practice in front of an altar proper. When a ‘kid’
has successfully possessed the person’s body, this person shall be able to
perform martial art or dance movements. Some folks attribute that to ‘soul
training’ (练灵); this
phenomenon is also similar to the practice of Tenaga Dalam.
According to the proponents, this ‘kid’ spirit can protect,
perform exorcism and bestow invulnerability etc. In the past, people practise
invulnerability ritual in the hope to withstand the fire arms of the West in
old China. I don’t have to tell you who won the battle at the end of the day. There
are mantras for invocation of kid transmitted amongst the followers:
"To the scared heaven and earth, a man invites god, god becomes man; man
becomes god. Which god had I conjured? I am invocating the gods in front of my
altar. I am requesting the mentioned gods to support my body: the east sea is
great, the west village is beautiful, the south sea is amazing and the north
water is wonderful. Crossing thousands of mountain ranges and water ways, with
waves on the ocean; gods appear on top of the waves. The method of Incense
Mountain is the method of mountain opening. The kid is helping disciple to
invite gods of mountains. I am inviting the gods of every mountain. The Maoshan
Master is helping me to invoke my spiritual kid; opening his golden mouth and
speaking the truth. If the one that comes is a demon, the emperor of 5 kings
and the grand master of 3 religions will chop it without mercy."
The request for
"The heaven is bright,
so is the earth. I opened up hundred thousand miles of Long River, all immortal
masters and gods; retrieve the kid and release my soul to this world."
In case you wonder, this ‘kid’ has nothing to do with the
Thai ‘kid spirit’ or better known as ‘kumanthong’.
Please also don’t try the above mantra as I cannot guarantee
what will come to you without proper guidance.
