GUMAN THONG MAGIC SUPER BOY -G 11″
Guman Thong created in the form of a lovely young child, but it’s really a ghost !! It’s was first created in the early of Ayutthaya era or some 500 years ago during Khun Paen’s life period. It can be said that Khun Paen was the first who created Guman Thong. He brought the dead baby from the womb of the dead Bua Klee, one of his minor wife, to the Bosth’s outer area within Pathasima marking boundary pillars for ritual processes. Bosth is the major chanting hall where the main Buddha image of the temple is placed. Bosth and its outer area are so sacred place that no mighty ghosts or spirits can enter to make any harassment.
By the legendary descriptions, Khun Paen was chanting some important Mantras to activate the spirit of Guman Thong while baking the dead baby on the fire. It’s Thai belief that a mother who died with her baby in the womb may become a very mighty ferocious ghost, Thai people call such the ghost PHI TAI TONG KLOM. By Thai tradition, any pregnant lady who died in that manner
will not be cremated immediately in all cases, believing that it will make the spirit of the dead unhappy and may activate her to become the vicious ghost. Creating Guman Thong in the ancient time was very thrilling. The master had to go to the graveyard alone in the night, dig up the corpse, cut the corpse’s abdomen bringing the dead baby out, and then rush directly to the nearest Bosth’s outer area for baking processes. That’s the safe place to protect the ghost mother from trying to bring her baby back.
So only the strong-mind person who possesses the advanced magical knowledge’s to fight the ghost could do this. On the ancient Thai belief, Phi Tai Tong Klom is also a good source for producing the opposite-sex attractive oil, NAM MAN PRAI (Nam Man = oil, Prai= female ghost). The master who wants to produce this oil needs to activate the corpse rising from the grave, and then use the candle flame heating under the corpse’s chin, the derivative dropping down liquid is the best quality opposite-sex attractive oil !! Even the root form of Guman Thong is actually a dead infant. But it is traditionally created in the form of a young child with various materials, such as wood, bronze, ivory tusk, plaster, etc. The main purpose of creating Guman Thong in the ancient time is for protecting the owner.
