    We cannot deny the significance of ghosts in Asian societies, because they play an essential part in our lives on an almost daily basis.
    Stepping into a plane heading to Thailand, you will be protected by benevolent ghosts immediately and automatically.

    They have the responsibility to protect you and help you without request. Most importantly, they will drive away the malevolent ghosts who may cause inconveniences to you. In Thailand, ghosts have their own specific duties to protect you.

    For example, during travelling you have to depend on the ghosts of vehicles, or Mae Ya Narng, the household ghosts, and ghosts of the forest. You need pay no extra charge because their help is complimentary. So you should not be afraid of them, but don’t insult them. The friendly ghosts always welcome you to the land of smiles and the land of a hundred ghosts.

    That is why I’ve dedicated this effort to telling you about ghosts. I must live with ghosts all my life; I cannot deny them or dissociate myself from them…

    Based on personal experiences, verbal and written evidence, and word of mouth. The first ever written by a Thai author who confronted ghosts at young age.

    Merging Animism and Buddhism

    The Cult of the Thirty-Seven Spirits (Nats) in Burma―Merging Animism and Buddhism is a study about the religious belief of the Burmese people that includes traditional (or indigenous) animistic worship of spirits and deities of Hindu-Buddhist origin to a specific concept within Theravada Buddhism.

    Nat worship has a much longer history in Burma (modern Myanmar) than Buddhism, and worshipers believe that areas, places, objects and people are associated with and governed by particular nats.

    When King Anawrahta of Bagan shaped the first Burmese nation by defeating the dominance of the Mon people in the 11th century, he also established a new religious belief system by combining Animism and Buddhism, which is still practiced by the Burmese people today.
