    Just outside of Phnom Penh in a section of the market you can find alot of fortune tellers. And some of them claim to be Ahp hmoup or Ahb Thoump (depands on where you’re from) Alot of khmers are scared of them because of the way they look. But many are scared because of the folklores that follow Ahp Thmoup. They are said to be very powerful in evil majic and can make a person die with a touch. They can transform into different shapes and are half snake half humans. They are said to be descendants of the ancient culture of Neaks (i.e. Neang Neak, Muchalinda Neak). They can read a persons future before birth and give curses that last generations. They have yantra tattoos all over their bodies to ward off demons and ghosts that follow them. There are different types, good and bad ones. Some have claimed to become monks and give fortune telling to people and ward off demons and bad luck. They are considerd to be the one of the most powerful fortune tellers in khmer culture. These khmers are the ones who said the rebirth of the khmer empire is coming soon. Could the prophecy be true?


    Spells and yantras are a common practice, these people who practice the basics are called in khmer kru theay and can give helpful hints in realationships and business and bless you with good luck. They are very well know and considered to be very good people. They can give yantra tatoos, basic spells, majic articles and ward demons and bad luck away. Alot of monks practice this type of fortune telling.

    which one would you choose for your fortune to be read?

    A true Buddhist never believe in such thing. These things are cloud from people’s own ignorances and superstitions.

    didn’t Buddha use majic spells and chants to ward off the Yeak demon? And in the yantra’s aren’t there buddist symbols?

    I believe in making my own luck also. But when I was in srok khmer I went to see a monk who also had tattoos all over his head and foreheand and cheeks. He looked pretty dahm kool, so I got a reading. HOLLY CRAP I thought, he read every thing that happened to me to the detail. I was amazed, then he told me the future and even to this day it still happens. I write a journal to record things then I cross examine. I think the western world teaches people not to believe in superstitions and physic. But for me I’m starting o believe there is something out there that humans don’t understand. Great Topic.
