    It appears like different baromeys have different behaviors and different ethics. I met a few of them who do not drink at all. The various behaviors confuse us, humans.

    Furthermore, we cannot see them, but they can see us! We are vulnerable beings. I used to hear Khmers praying for their pardon for any mistake, voluntary or otherwise. The Khmers said: please pardon us, baby birds.

    We are truly baby birds compared to some spirits’ power.

    I might have a answer for that. The Buddha talk about different Realm or Plane, The Human Realm(Our Realm) is the only realm that is hard to gain “Supernatural Power” that why only lil bit of people have it. Yes Supernatural Power are real!
    Spiritual Realm, Heaven Realm, Demon realm and other realm is it really easy to gain Supernatural Power. That why spirit, ghosts, demon have special power. Have you ever watch Discovery Channel documentary call the Haunting? you’ll be amazed on what kinda special power these ghosts or sprits have.

    Since spirit can easily gain “power” in their realm they can use it to come into our realm anytime they want. You get what Im saying? Now in the Ghost realm is really cold, so whenever a ghosts wanna come to the Human realm, the room started to get cold. that why everytime u hear someone say they saw a ghost they alway say the room temperature drop to cold temperature.

    The good things about human realm is that our realm is the only realm that a person can reach Enlightment. No other realm can’t, that what so special about our realm and it have Prositive and Negative engery. Heaven realm only have prositive energy and hell, ghost, demon, only have negative engery.

    The Buddha talk about all different kind of Supernatural powers.

    If you wanna read more about it i have a link :)

    ” My wife’s Mjas-Tep told us that we’ll receive our fortune since we went to srok khmer 06′ but we haven’t receive (to-toul-leap-tom) yet but we still trust her that she told us the truth.”

    Regarding to these comments, I think she’s talking in MIL/BIL/TRI, I just don’t know yet :)…..
    From my wife point of view, she’s have seen the future already in her dream, it’s a matter of time that verything come through. She have special gifts (boun) somewhat like you that can see past-present-future sometimes.

    For me, Mjas-Tep told me that I was KINGS six times, the last famous king in srok khmer, the seven time now as regular person, but I did not ask her all the details. I met with Prea-Meda-Krup-Leak last year in srok khmer. What do you think Veo?

    If this was all you got as details, you have not taken the telling seriously yet. Most people get future reading for fun only. The reading matter, if dealt with appropriately and if used right, is a powerful assistance in many endeavors.

    Next time, you could prepare yourself to ask important questions that will pertain to your inquiry. Those questions are for example:

    When will that luck happen? Date. time.
    How will it happen?
    How much exactly?
    What need to be done for that to happen?
    ???

    If the teller is good, she should be able to give answers to your questions. I have used several good tellers. I talk to them the same way I conduct executive business meetings.

    ***

    I have researched into astrology, numerology, phychic reading, Chinese fung shui, Khmer future telling as well as spritual readings. I found that good future telling from these sources are much better than state-of-the art sciences. Sciences go by trends, up or down when it comes to predicting future. For instance, the federal reserve predicts that the economy will go up with lowering of interest rate of a quarter of a point. The good spirit telling would say that with the interest rate lowering, the economy will go up by how much and when, etc.

    A present academic displine called futurology is nothing compared to what Khmer spirit reading for instance. The reading could tell the exact numbers to come, not just trends.

    If you could go into details with the teller, you would not wonder as you do now. You would know exactly how much and when! With the details in your note, it will be easy to tell whether you have the truth in your hands. If one item is wrong, the whole telling will likely be wrong!!

    You have an interesting soul history, similar to mine. May be we could try together to understand what has happened to us. Also what will happen to us.

    I did not know anything about your spirits till now. I do have a lot of fun talking to these beings. If you could tell me where to find them, I’d be happy to try my best to see them. Afterward, I will be able to discuss more intelligently. I love powerful spirits, the good ones.

    *I totally agree with u on this but I do take it serious. I been to a few fortune teller or head monk but most of their reading aren’t accurate about me except boramey can tell me the truth…..

    When will that luck happen? Date. time.
    *Supposed it should happen 2007, Feb 08′, now Mar 08′ BUT DID NOT ASKED DATE & TIME.

    How will it happen? *DIDN’T ASKED -DON’T KNOW
    How much exactly? *DON’T KNOW
    What need to be done for that to happen? WE DID WHAT SHE ASKED US, I THINK :)
    *I did asked around 20-25 questions but I think it was very general questions!

    * I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU ON THIS…..

    If you could go into detail with the teller, you would not wonder as you do now. You know exactly how much and when!
    *Again totally agree with you, but mjas-tep keep changing because she want to tests more, I’m not sure what kind of tests.

    You have interesting soul history, similar to mine. May be we could try together to understand what has happened to us. Also what will happen to us.
    *Hey at least can see something in your dreams so forth :) + Me, I’m like sombie…..

    Thanks for bringing some detail questions that I should ask next time. Shoot me some more detail questions that I should be asking…..

    You mentioned future tellers is that boramey in khmer term? Anyway, I consider Mjas-Tep is borameay, her prea-neam is difference in other dimension. Her mjas roub is in srok khmer. I needs to ask her first regarding giving her number to call if that ok. I know one in Long Beach also, if you want both #s, let me know and I’m sure glad to check with them.

    SiNishM,

    Your spirit list:

    “By the way, my wife’s Mjas-Tep have one oldest brother and six sisters, you might met them already. Lok-Ta Reach (?), Mjas-Tep(in Siem Reap)/Mjas-Moa (way to Kom-Pong-Som) First Twin, Mjas-Yart(Pilan)/Mjas-Sar(?)Second Twin,Mjas-Penh(PP)/Mjas-Pov(?) Third Twin which made 7 siblings. Other spirits that we met (Lok-Ta-Ong-Perng(phnom Kulen), PreaMeDa-Krub-Leak(J.VII wife), Pre-Ong-Kas-Sa-Nak, etc….. in the way, we are all relate some how. Questions for you veayoo, I’m still puzzle about my curiousity that Borameay don’t tell us lie but why do I get difference answers from Mjas-Tep (Prea-Meda-Krub-Leak)/Pre-Ong-Kas-Sa-Nak? Maybe you can enlight some of my curiousities . Mjas-Tep and/or her siblings have difference names in different dimension, I don’t know how to say in term of Gods/Kings langauges. It’s difficult to explain on KC, probably easier to talk face to face. ”

    I replied that the names are not familiar. As I look back though this name “Mjas-Moa (way to Kom-Pong-Som)” may be familiar.

    There is Lok Yeay Mao ( black grandma) on the way to Kg Som, at Pich Nil. If she is the Mjas-Moa you cited, I am very familiar with her. I have offered her banana and incent close to 50 times. She has enticed many business people. To me, she may have blessed as I asked. My business in that direction has been going well.

    Many of these names could be familiar to me if you give me other aka for them. Better translation from Khmer to latin would help also.

    Mantras ( Mun in Khmer) are wording that is recited by Buddhist monks and Borameys as well. Buddhist monks Sot Mun to do praying. Many Borameys, especially the best ones, Sot Mun Akum Keatha to get something done, including what we call magic.

    Buddhist monks’ muns are manly in Pali or Khmer. We hear them in many traditional ceremonies.

    Boramey’s Muns, from the very old spirits, are actually quite different. They are not in Pali language ( or I would be able to tell, at least a little). They also did not sound like Sanskrit. If they were in Sanscrit, they must be very old one, or very advanced. They are difficult to understand by myelf as well as my tutor.

    My 3,200 years old tutor is very powerful, has his name in Sanskrit and can understand it well. He could not devore what kind of Mun my 7,100 years old dad recited!

    The difficult language in Khmer Boramey muntras shows that they started to exist a long time ago.

    In another thread, people talks about mantras used by a Khmer hero, Decho Damdin. Decho Damdin could travel underground from Srok Khmer to Thailand. He likely used his mantras to dig tunnel underground. He could make soldiers out of straws, etc.

    One of my masters, I was told, specialized in shortening travel path. 100 miles could be shortened to 10 yards for instance, so that he could just make a few steps to get there.

    Another master specialized in flying. He does not use airplane like us. He travels like night light running from one horizon to the other. Without booking a ticket first.

    Lots of things we can do with help from sciences and technologies nowsaday were done by muntras in the old days. Some of these mantras still survive in Khmer culture. Would you be curious about these magics that left from our ancestors? Do you think that it is worthwhile to find what we are left for us as inheritence? would you like to see whether you could dig a tunnel, shorten a path or fly by yourself w/o going to the airport?

    I try to dig the old legacies out as much as I can. I hope I’ll be able to report my findings another time. I’ll tell you if I ever fly or tell the future. hee hee.

    Veoveoy,

    I don’t really know how to translate to latin or know their other names in difference dimension. She did say about her other name in Tarn-Lear, but I don’t remember unless I ask again and write it down. Any way, if you go to each of this city, you can find out where their sculpter is at? But to most ordinary people they might just know their name like Lok-Yearv-Phnom Penh, NOT Mjas-Penh :)

    The yantra/ tatoo in the back is quite impressive. This kind of tatto is not the same as the ones people get from a tatoo shop on a main street somewhere. It embeds with powerful mantras, I guess.

    As you mentioned, the guy who has the mantras/ yantras/ tatoo may possess magic power, such as bullet proof or so :)

    Veoyoo,

    Mjas-Tep is the to one, the twin w/Mjas-Mao, but out of the seven sibling, she post the most power I think. I think they came from Bra-Joum-Thearn-Neak, can travel 13 or more different Tharns, but I’m not too sure until I ask again. Any way, I love to spend a lot of time listening to her when I was in srok khmer, hope to see her this year again and I will definetly will spend a lot more time w/her than before. Me and my wife call her once or twice a month to ask her some advise, talk to her w/her busy schedules with our country/religion and how our fortune comining etc….. So far, we met Mjas-Tep, Mjas-Mao and Mjas-Yart happen to be my wife great grandma during the Angkorian period. I hope to meet all of her siblings this year if we happen to be in srok khmer this year :)

    I get a few answers for the matters, from experience as well as from reading.
    My personal experience was from being a Khmer, growing up in a Buddhist/ Hinduist environment. The reading is mainly from what the Hinduists say about Hinduism and the mantra, yantra and tantra matters.

    let me start what I find out about Hinduism first. I am reading the following books:

    • Hinduism, a short history by Klaus Klostermaier, 1933, 342 pages.
    • What is Hunduism?, from the editors of Hinduism Today magazine.
    • Shiva and the Primordial tradition, from tantras to the sciences of dreams, by Alain Danielou
    • The Hindu Tradion, by Embree, Ainslie T.
    • Handbook of Hindu Mythology, by George M. Williams
    • The Eternal Cycle, Indian Myth, Myth and mankind.

    Hinduism:

    Khmer calls the religion as Prum Manh Sasna (Brahman religion). English language calls it Hinduism.
    As different books give different dates, Hinduism started about 4,000 BC. This makes the religion age to about 6,000 years ago. This concurs the age of my divine father Preah Muni Eyso. From previous finding, Preah Muni Eyso is Preah Shiva or Siva.

    Hinduism, practiced by over 1 billion people, is branched to several denominations: Shaivism (worship the Supreme God, Shiva), Shaktism (worship divine mother Preah Me Kali, Vaishnavism (worship the Supreme as lord Visnu), and Smartism ( worship the Supreme in one of six forms: Ganesha, Shiva, Sakti, Visnu, Surya and Skanda).

    In India history, Shiva was the first God among the gods. Later in Indian history, emerged two more main gods: Brahman and Visnu. General understand is that Brahman create the world, Visnu maintain it, and Siva destroy it. Shaivism, the oldest denomination in Hinduism, has recorded that everything including creation, maintenance and destruction was in Shiva power.

    At one time, when Shiva was away, Brahman and Visnu, tired of waiting, decided to create and maintain. When Siva returned, he was mad and destroy everything. He then recreated, maintained and took care of things.

    Shiva appears to be the most known and the most powerful among all gods. His wife is Kali (Parvati, Uma) is also very powerful. Shiva has two children who are powerful gods as well: Ganesha and Skanda. Siva’s whole family members are Hinduism gods .

    Having been in Buddhism for centuries, Khmers may not understand well what Hinduism is all about.

    Buddha is not a god. He did not claim of creating the world. He is a teacher to followers. He found the way to nirvana (enlightenment) and told others about it. Buddha’s codes of ethics include no sex and no liquor consumption.

    ***

    As the Supreme God of Hinduism, Shiva created the world (worlds), including people and things. Hindu’s codes of ethics do not prohibit sex or liquor consumption.

    From “What is Hunduism?, from the editors of Hinduism Today magazine”,

    Hinduism’s code of conduct:

    The ten vedic Restraints, Yama:

    1. Noninjury, Ahimsa.
    2. Truthfulness, Satya.
    3. Nonstealin, Asteya.
    4. Divine conduct,Bramacharya.
    5. Patience, Ksama.
    6. Steadfastness, Dhriti.
    7. Compassion, Daya.
    8. Honesty, Arjava.
    9. Moderate appetite, Mitahara.
    10. Purity, Saucha.

    The ten Vedic practices:

    1. Remorese, Hri.
    2. Contentment, Santosha.
    3. Giving, dana.
    4. Faith, Astikya.
    5. Worship, Ishvara-Pujana.
    6. Scriptural listening, Siddhanta Shravana.
    7. Cognition, Mati.
    8. Sacred vows, Vrata.
    9. Recitation, Japa.
    10. Austerity, Tapas.

    Khmer Buddhist monks, of Theravada Buddhism, practice the NO sex way. Sexual thought, talk or acts are all sins, and are not allowed.

    Hindu priests, belonging to the Brahman cast, though, have family and sex. In fact, Hinduism / Shaivism is a lot about sex. God Shiva is a personality centered around sex. To keep the world populated after the creation, sex is a way to go. The sex theme is so strong that an object of Shaivism worship is Siva’ Linga (a male d*ick).

    From my reading, , Shiva is represented as a dancer with many arms. He is a Supreme God of art, culture, etc. He is most of all a God of sex. In a Hinduism myth, he danced so well that a Rishi’s wife and daughters felt aroused continuously by Him. The Rishi was mad and then cursed Him to have his linga cut off. Well, Shiva cut his own d*ick and threw it away. The Linga burned almost everything in worlds. To stop the fire devastation, Brahma and Visnu collected the d*ick back and made it a worship object for Hinduism.

    If you have seen the movie, Indiana Jones, the rock that people worshipped is actually Shiva’s Linga, an object that million Hinduists worship everyday.

    From my reading, also one day several Rishis (sages) needed to talk to Shiva about an urgent matter in this world. Shiva was not available. He was busy having sex.. The Rishis then gave him a curse that Shiva will be worshipped not as a whole body, but as a Linga.

    Shaivism tantric is much about pleasure from sex and sees the high feeling of male sperm ejaculation related to god.

    If any of you, readers, is lost with this thread, I am going to recap the reason that it got started.

    I was looking for info relating to my origin, my soul and explanation to a few miracles that have happened to me personally. I was looking to see whether two Khmer main religions could explain what happened.

    I was told that I was the son of a god by the name of Preah Karl( I found the God name Kali! Karl in Khmer and kali in sanskrit mean Time. God of Time.). I was told also that 800 lives ago, I was the son of Preah Muni Eyso ( I found out that He is Shiva, Siva).

    Born Khmer, I was trying to understand things through available means including culture, history, religion, myth… I got many explanations from Khmer Borameys, the Khmer spirits who no longer have physical bodies.

    A few KC friends who have background in this subject have participated and encouraged me to spend a lot of time in this thread. If I were to charge $250 per hour of my time, as I used to in my IT consulting career, I would have made lots of money! I have fun searching for free!! It appears like a lot more findings will come though.

    This subject is strange (advanced)to most readers. It deals with soul, spirits, boramey, magic, mantras, yantras, tantras, yoga, gods, the worlds, etc. If you are new to this, it will take time to get the materials down.

    I have had Khmer, French and American education. My education major had nothing to do with this spiritual subject. I am struggling.

    It is fun for me to step in a strange field of spiritual matter though.

    Feel free to contribute !!! If you feel lost, you are not alone.

    There are lots of gods in Hinduism. Each main area has a god. Agni is fire god. Vayu is the wind god. Indra is the sky god…

    Among the gods, I found one of particular interest. He is Kali, God of Time. Prior reading the Hinduism books, I referred to him as Preah Karl.

    I was told Preah Karl (Kali) is of higher dimension than even Brahman. This could be true because Brahman has an age of 100 Brahman years or so (a lot of human years). Having an age means that he will die at one time, after having lived so long. At that time, the God of time, Preah Karl, will take care of business. Preah Karl business may include duration/ time tracking and may be of karma judgment as well(God Yama, or Yumareach, may be under his supervision).

    The time business which goes beyond a life of a Brahma is probably a reason I was told that, my father, Preah Kali occupies a heaven layer higher than Preah In (Indra), Preah Prum( Brahma), and Preah Yum ( Yumareach, Yama)!

    In “Handbook of Hindu Mythology, by George M. Williams”:

    Kailasa is heaven for Shiva.
    Vaikuntha for Vishnu.
    Indraloka for Indra.
    Bramaloka for Brahman.

    There are two gods whose names are close to each other.

    English spelling shows that the names are the same as KALI. French spelling, with accent on vowels, is clearer.

    Khmer gave the names clearest distinction though:

    Preah Me(mother) Kali = Uma = Parvati = Wife of Shiva = Kali.
    Preah Karl = God of time = Kali

    Anonymous,

    With academic-level Khmer language skills, I have no problem translating Hindu gods’ names to Khmer.

    There are however numerous gods in Hinduism. I only rtranslate and refer to the God and Gods that relate to me such as Shiva, his wife Preah Me Kali, his son Ganish, and his son Skanda. All of them are main gods worshipped in Shaivism (Shiva), Saktism ( Preah Me Kali) and Smartism( includeing Ganish and Skanda) of Hinduism.

    Also Preah Karl, God of Time, my father at one time also.

    ****

    In this research, I have had difficulty relating what is in Khmer culture to what is called in Hinduism. I find out the hard way that I should relate the Khmer names and words to Pali first prior to trying to make sense with Sanskrit or Hindu.

    A Khmer word such as Eysey is hard to relate to the word Rishi in Sanskrit. The two words are far apart. However, when I saw that Rishi is called Isi in Pali, I can see that Eysey in Khmer is Rishi in Sanskrit, and is Isi in Pali.

    I was looking for the word in Hinduism because my 7,100 years old grandfather was referred by his collegue as Ta Eysey.

    From the books that I read, Ta Eysey (Rishi) existed at the time of Shiva myth. Shiva Lingas ( his male sex organ) was relieved from his body because of curses from Rishis. That confirms thatRishis existed then, or possibly prior to the time the Shiva myth was taken place.

    This explains why my father Preah Muni Eyso (6k yo) has lots of respect to my grandfather Muni Eysey (7.2k yo).

    From my reading, one of Preah Eysey’s power is ability to see ahead, foresight. This foresight does not apply just to the future. He can see back to the past to.

    This is the power that my grandfather possess. He told me what are coming. He also looked into my previous life, and also told me who was my soul mate. By soul mate, he means a lady who was my wife in previous lives and why she is the best fit for me in this life.

    ***

    One of my questions is how could one including my grandfather Preah Eysey sees the future and the past?

    From my reading, a Supreme God, being creator/ maintainer/ destroyer, could do anything including the seeing. Besides Him though, how could any one achieve that foreseeing skill?

    Hinduism says that the seeing ability could be achieved with yogas. In the yogas, practioners have to have firm belief in Shiva and go through a serie of procedures and steps to be taught by Hindu priests. With the yogas, people have to learn about all vessels and major pulses in our body, called Chakras.

    The Hinduism yoga actually is quite different from Buddhist meditation. Hinduism yogas concentrate on believing in Shiva while trying to ask Him for help to attain the enlightenment stage.

    Buddhism yoga is more of independent thinking about the world shamkara, karma, the good and the bad deed or so.

    ***

    Well, I’d like to try if there is a yoga or meditation place that provides high possibility to get the foresight skill. Does anyone know of a college course or a meditation guru that could lead me there? Hee Hee

    I have read T. Harris’s writng about Khmer culture. I excerpt some pertinent paragraphs below.

    http://the-khmer-contribution.blogspot.com/

    T. harris’ writing shows quite a bit of Hinduism in Khmer culture. He concurs that Shiva Hinduism was big in Cambodia. Khmer kings were made to be divine through Hinduism rituals. Khmer and Thai royal languages were “raja-sap” (royal languages) translated from Khmer/ Sanskrit.

    Furthermore, he notes to the end of his writing about two things that Thai got from Cambodia: sacred manuscripts and the priests who were expert in the matters. The sacred manuscripts were Hinduism rites and scripts_ the mantras, yantras, and tantras_ of the Shiva based Hinduism in Cambodia. The experts who went along with were Hindu priests/ descendents who knew how to make a king to be a divine one. The priest were “a Khmer brāhman chaplain named Śivakaivālya, and a wandering guru Hiranyadāma”. “Guru Chod was born on the Sagittarian full-moon night of 1900. This family bore the royal name of Harshavarman that had spanned a thousand-year line of monarchs”.

    I read Khmer history a long time ago. Harshavarman was king in Cambodia.

    Relating to the Khmer story of Preah Ko/ Preah Keo, I think I find out what they were all about. Preah Ko is Shiva’s Bull which is basically the mantras, yantras and tantras and rites in the sacred texts stolen by the Thai. Preah Keo are the Hinduism experts and Khmer royal families who were stolen or abducted.

    ***

    Preah KO means Divine Bull. Shiva, the Supreme God, ride a Bull. In Hinduism, a bull is an image of knowledge. Today, Khmer people talk about Preah Ko as knowledge as well. A cow or a bull means knowledge to Khmers.

    Preah Keo, in general, means somebody sacred and of value. The word keo in Khmer means glassware, something shining, brilliant… In the old days, Khmers imported glassware. Keo was very precious and valuable. Being expert of the Hinduism mantras, yantras, tantras, texts, etc, the priests were and are very brilliant and valuable. They could shine Cambodia in a way that non-Hinduist could.

    Preah Keo may be the Khmer Hinduism experts and may include the royal family as well.

    akkri Court Quarrels

    Four hundred years after the founding of Ayudhya, a new dynastic line was established in Bangkok. It assumed the Sanskrit name of Cakkri, a magical disk-like instrument of war that was used by the Vedic god Harsha, king of the gods. Yet not to depart from established custom, the great House of Cakkri acquiesced to precedence and sought to resuscitate Khmer Majesté. Interestingly enough this largely accounts for the present day survival of a vast Sanskritic nomenclature pertaining to all things regal in Thailand. The imperative Thai raja-sap (lit. “king’s language”) has essentially derived from the Sanskritic court language of the Royal Khmer.

    With time, however, the great prestige that Cambodian brāhman priests once enjoyed showed marked depreciation and their courtly status grew increasingly subservient. Then around the turn of the twentieth century a certain outstanding Cambodian family left the royal service altogether. They carried off with them sacred manuscripts with instructions for conducting important state ceremonies. In the attempt to recover these sacred texts, the head of the priestly family’s mother was imprisoned. To secure her release some of the manuscripts were handed over. According to Wales, the government actually feared the commotion that a forceful attempt to obtain the remaining documents might have caused, and pursued the matter no further (Wales 1931: 55).

    conclusion

    By way of conclusion I should only like to state that with the heightened sophistication of Siamese society accompanying the enlightened rule of King Chulalongkorn (1868-1910), Cambodian brāhmans were once again called upon to fill the expanding governmental posts. It was a brāhman family much like this to which Guru Chod was born on the Sagittarian full-moon night of 1900. This family bore the royal name of Harshavarman that had spanned a thousand-year line of monarchs, a Khmer brāhman chaplain named Śivakaivālya, and a wandering guru Hiranyadāma.

    From what i read, once you reach enlightenment, you’ll gain all the supernatuarl power.
    That link i gave you about how to gain supernatural power it say you can gain supernatuarl power
    by…

    [b]1.[/b] The ultimate magical power is attained through cultivation of the Middle Way. When one is enlightened to the truth of the Middle Way in all existence, he/she can maintain the mind without thinking or differentiation toward the myriad objects and events encountered throughout the day. One knows all phenomena in the universe, yet one is not attached. Power obtained through cultivation allows one to be totally liberated and free from the cycles of rebirth.

    [b]2.[/b] Magical power can be obtained through meditation practices

    [b]3.[/b] Spells and potions can produce magic. This is the power of sorcerers and witches. They can call upon winds and fires. They make themselves invisible by hiding under water or in the ground, etc. This type of power is the most prone to be abused as a means to harm others

    [b]4.[/b] As the result of their karma, some living beings may have magical power, too. Ghosts can transport themselves across physical barriers and travel rapidly over a long distance.

    [b]5.[/b] Spirits and genies can magically absorb cosmic energies from heaven and earth. After a long period of time, these spirits can manifest in human form and play tricks on people.

    There’s a monk in Thailand name Luang Phaw who have the power to see people past life.
    People would write to him and he would write em back given them answer.
    here the website http://www.dmc.tv/articles/en/casestudy.html showing some of the letter people wrote to him and at the bottom of each letter he would explain why did it happend, by tellin them who they was and what they did in their past life.

    and Jesus gain his supernatural power by studying Hinduism/Buddhism. This part of Jesus life story was taken out of the bible(I wonder why). It is call “Jesus Missing Teenage Year” the bible never talk about Jesus teenage year. it start from his child birth then it skip all the way to the age 30s and at age 30 Jesus have magic power. a man have found edvenice about jesus teenage year. He say that he went to India and study Hindu or buddhism.

    Hinduism shows a way to get that skill. This way, to my present understanding, is not achievable bu most who tried. The way is Hinduism yoga, in which practioners have to have firm belief in Shiva and go through a serie of procedures and steps to be taught by Hindu priests. With the yoga, people have to learn about all vessels and major pulses in our body, called Chakras.

    did you know that some people have the 6th sense to see other people chakra. I used to know a khmer girl who have this gift and the God that create khmer race, Preah Neak have 7 head representing the 7 color of Chakra. :)

    I agree with you. Not everything I read or see is the truth. These are just info. I will have to distil it out to get to the truth. It is very helpful.

    You may notice that I have not checked spelling or grammar etc. This is a kind of scrap book.

    I intend to distil and polish the info I have received and seen.
    :)
