Over 600 ghosts reportedly captured in Southern Thailand

The Pattaya News

KRABI — It’s Time for a ceremony that only takes place once every thirty years in Thailand-finding and capturing errant souls.

Held every 30 years, the week-long festival sees Thai and foreign shamans scour the roads in Krabi and Nakhon Si provinces for the dislocated spirits of those who died in road accidents. Once they have lured the departed, a ceremony sends the captured souls to peace in the afterlife.

“We are summoning all the spirits along the roads where accidents took place,”
Jittiphum Chantachote, a coordinator of Tekka Jikung Foundation’s chapter in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Jittiphum’s group is one of several foundations involved to organize the hunt for ghosts with assistance from counterparts in Malaysia. For the festival, which began Saturday and ends Sunday, white-clad mediums ride on pickup trucks and pause to burn Chinese “hell money” whenever they encounter paranormal activity. The flame is believed to compel the spirits into following the shamans. More than 600 ghosts were reportedly captured yesterday.

The highlight of the festival is scheduled for Thursday. On that night, necromancers from around Asia will meet and then will parade around the city center of Nakhon Si Thammarat, after which hell money will be burnt in dedication to the spirits over the following days. The necromancers will then communicate with the spirits of loved ones for family members and living relatives to deliver messages.

Tourists are welcome to observe the ceremonies, Jittiphum said.

Thailand is consistently ranked among the world’s highest in road fatalities. In 2016, more than 22,000 people died in traffic accidents and 60,000 were left with disabilities, officials said.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
