    Re: Kuman Thong

    well Thong means golden, and Kuman is a language of a province in Papua New Guinea
    they were in middle asia before their migration to the west.

    GUMAN THONG
    THE MAGIC SUPER BOY
    Guman Thong is a Thai amulet created in the form of a lovely young child, but it's really a ghost !! It's was first created in the early of Ayuthaya era or some 500 years ago during Khun Paen's life period. It can be said that Khun Paen was the first who created Guman Thong. He brought the dead baby from the womb of the dead Bua Klee, one of his minor wife, to the Bosth's outer area within Pathasima marking boundary pillars for ritual processes. Bosth is the major chanting hall where the main Buddha image of the temple is placed. Bosth and its outer area are so sacred place that no mighty ghosts or spirits can enter to make any harassment. By the legendary descriptions, Khun Paen was chanting some important Mantras to activate the spirit of Guman Thong while baking the dead baby on the fire.
    It's Thai belief that a mother who died with her baby in the womb may become a very mighty ferocious ghost, Thai people call such the ghost PHI TAI TONG KLOM. By Thai traditon, any pregnant lady who died in that manner will not be cremated immediately in all cases, believing that it will make the spirit of the dead unhappy and may activate her to become the vicious ghost. Creating Guman Thong in the ancient time was very thrilling. The master had to go to the graveyard alone in the night, dig up the corpse, cut the corpse's abdomen bringing the dead baby out, and then rush directly to the nearest Bosth's outer area for baking processes.That's the safe place to protect the ghost mother from trying to bring her baby back. So only the strong-mind person who possesses the advanced magical knowledges to fight the ghost could do this.

    On the ancient Thai belief, Phi Tai Tong Klom is also a good source for producing the opposite-sex attractive oil, NAM MAN PRAI (Nam Man = oil, Prai= female ghost). The master who wants to produce this oil needs to activate the corpse rising from the grave, and then use the candle flame heating under the corpse's chin, the derivative dropping-down liquid is the best quality opposite-sex attractive oil !!

    Even the root form of Guman Thong is actually a dead infant. But it is traditionally created in the form of a young child with various materials, such as wood, bronze, ivory tusk, plaster,etc. The main purpose of creating Guman Thong in the ancient time is for protecting the owner. The young child ghost could be activated with Mantra to fight the owner's enemies or to protect the owner's treasures.

    Creating present-era Guman Thongs the guru monks use no more such the thrilling method but create them with sacred materials and activate their lives by holy Mantras. Some guru monks who created sacred Guman Thongs are such as Luang Poo Boon of Wat Klang Bang Kaew, Luang Poh Cham of Wat Takong and Luang Poh Tae KongThong of Wat SamNgam, etc. But the most well-known and most popular pieces are of Luang Poh Tae KongThong. Almost all the present-era Guman Thongs have been created for wealth and for fortune-fetching purposes.

    Any one who wants to worship Guman Thong should be acknowledged some important practices :

    1. Food offering must be presented at least once a day.

    2. Toy offering must also be presented occasionally, it's just because Guman Thong is a young child(spirit), he likes playing toys as another human child.

    3. The worshipper should love Guman Thong as his/her son. For the 1st personal pronoun you call yourself "father" or "mother"; for the 2nd personal pronoun you call him "my son" ; and for the 3rd personal pronoun you just call his name Guman Thong.

    4. Any house that has small child/children, it's recommended that should not bring in and worship Guman Thong because he may envy your child/children whom you pay all love to.

    Worshipping Guman Thong needs deliberate practices. But if you can do it completely as recommended, he will be a good great fortune bringer.

    Thong (speak: torng, ทอง) means gold, golden.
    Guman (speak: gu-marn, กุมาร) means child. It came from Pali-Sanskrit (a name of Indian-European language), not real Thai word.

    We call "Guman Thong" because after drying processes, the baby corpse would be covered by gold leaf.

    Guman Thong was appear in the story of Khun Charng Khun Paen (ขุนช้างขุนแผน), a classic of Thai literature written in verse by King Lert La of the Chakri Dynasty (King Rama II, พระพุทธเลิศหล้านภาลัย). It was about a love triangle involving Khun Pane (ขุนแผน) the dashing lover and able warrior, Khun Charng (ขุนช้าง) the comic but faithful husband, and Pim Pi Lar Lai (พิมพิลาไลย), changed to Wan Thong in later (วันทอง), who vacillated between true love and respectability. The original was in the Ayuthaya era and became to local legend of Supanburi city later. After the big war with Burma, a lot of books from Ayuthaya were destroyed, burned, or lost. At the biginning Ratanakosin era, King Lert La wanted to maintained and collected Khun charng Khun Paen perfectly, many poets laureate, including the king himself, composted it again knew as "Royal Verse เสภาหลวง". The royal verse was printed and first widespread to people in 2415 BE by doctor Smith. This verse was reformed again, royal verse and several local versions were combined together, some chapters were extended, deleted, or fixed, and published in 2460 B.E.

    Someone said Khun Charng Khun Paen was the true story because the warrior named Khun Paen had been found in the story of dynasties in a time of King Ramathibodi II (สมเด็จพระรามาธิบดีที่ 2), 2015 - 2072 BE (1472 - 1529 CE), and the name of this king was refered to in the verse too, knew as King Pra Pan Wa Sa (สมเด็จพระพันวษา).


    Another Thai amulets look like "Guman Thong" are "Luuk Grorg ลูกกรอก" and "Rak-Yom รัก-ยม".

    Luuk Grorg = a dry baby corpe
    Rak = love, beloved, รัก
    Yom = to be popular, a short word from Ni Yom, นิยม

    Luuk Grorg is a common name for a dry baby corpe.
    Rak-Yom is a popular name for calling Luuk Grorg, the owner can call the different name.
    Guman Thong is a specific name that Khun Paen called Luuk Grorg, his deadly baby.
    The difference between "Guman Thong" and "Luuk Grorg" is Guman Thong is made by the dead baby inside the womb of the dead mother, Luuk Grorg is made by the dead baby after birth, mother maybe alive or dead. But sometime both are the same. Nowadays, even if the amulets made from wood, ceramic, holy mixed powder, etc. but still believe there is a spirit baby inside.
