Mass gathering for lottery numbers as "spirit of the tree" promises riches!

RAYONG: -- Poor villagers in Rayong have flocked to a temple to get rich from the benevolence of the female spirit of a sacred tree.

 

It was almost stampede conditions yesterday in the car park outside the temple of Wat Atsadaram in Nikhom Patana where a ceremony was held to ask the tree spirit for numbers for the lottery, Thai Rath reported.

 

And the crowds were not disappointed as three numbers came out.

 

The spirit in question resides in a "takhian" tree and is known as "Jao Mae Takhian Thong".

 

Some while back a stump of such a tree was dredged from a 10 metre deep lake on the property of a woman called Ladda, 57. Along with her friend Ubon they carried out a ceremony in which the spirit emerged and entered the body of a young woman who then raised her fingers in a trance.

 

On the right hand five fingers were raised, on the left just three. These numbers were then used to guide Ladda to a 500,000 baht government lottery win.

 

Not content with this windfall she then got together with other villagers who had also benefitted and dressed up an effigy in a Thai costume and asked the "Jao Mae (whose name is Mae Ubonwan) to reappear.

 

Lo and behold, she did reappear this time saying that she would give a total of three sets of numbers only and that only good people could benefit from her benevolence.

 

This second time a woman won more than a million baht and then erected a Thai style house to pay homage to the spirit.

 

The tree stump was yesterday brought to the car park of the temple as many people crowded round hoping to get rich.

 

A further ceremony was held and the numbers that came out on this third occasion were:

 

502, 561 and 02.

 

Good luck - but don't forget.....you have to be a good person to benefit.

What worries me the most is- these people are allowed to raise and "educate" children.

Not surprised. Thailand is not unique in being home to an abundance of superstition,  propaganda, greed and ignorance. "Lucky" or auspicious vehicle license plates command six-digit prices here and elsewhere. Google for a laugh.

 

One can make  a profit on most anything that panders to the ego. The masses may go naked, hungry, homeless and uneducated, but some must show that they have "made it" in this world by possessing such trinkets.

The same reason many people in the West spend their lives climbing up the career ladder of some corporate entity - to obtain a huge house, expensive cars and other trinkets. Only to retire and then drop dead from exhaustion.
