Thailand "Black Magic"

I have recently been trying to devour all of the information that I could find on Sak Yant magical tattoos and other uses of yantra in sorcery when came across this interesting documentary on Youtube. The film covers the making of various charms and forms of magic done by Buddhist in Thailand. I found the similarities to other forms of folk magic fascinating. When the sorcerer in the first part makes a name paper based on the husbands birth date, and then uses the as part of the petition along with wax poppets to reconcile a marriage and break up his love affair, I thought that's pretty much how I would do it too. I am also intrigued by the use of the "child ghost" as spirit helpers. I may just have to track one down. I believe that a trip to Thailand is in my future next year. Well here is the documentary, enjoy.

@The Sorcerer: Doing just fine. Shouldn't take too long to catch up because I have been slacking a bit! Haha. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

@Orochimaru: If I am ever down that way I would certainly let you know. I would love to learn about the local magic there.

it's fascinating how some cultures do their workings but if you look at it deeply, they all share a common theme.
