600 Ghosts Busted In Southern Thailand

Shamans burn piles of hell money Tuesday to attract hordes of spirits killed on Krabi province’s roads.

 

KRABI — While the latest crackdown on foreigners working illegallycontinues, another large-scale operation is underway in the southern region: finding and capturing errant souls.

 

Held every 30 years, the week-long festival sees Thai and foreign shamans scour the roads in Krabi and Nakhon Si provinces for the dislocated spirits of those who died in road accidents. Once they have lured the departed, a ceremony sends the captured souls to peace in the afterlife.

Good idea to get the ghosts off the road, they are very hard to see when you are driving, I may even have hit one without my knowledge! :wacko:

Ignorance of the law ghost is no excuse. You may well have your licence suspended (using a piece of holy twine).
