Lesson 10: Notice manifestation of demonic possession from raw to sophisticated elements

How to exterminate spiritual entities and to expulse demons? This is a big question for people who are interested in spiritual existence. Before performing, it is necessary to determine who is being expulsed by demon? Where to show the demon’s existence and activities? We exclude the object “ghost” because the previous article said that “ghost” belongs to heaven realm, in the land of “Tha nature in heaven”. They rarely come to the human realm to perturb.

Notice manifestation of demonic possession from raw to sophisticated elements

You may have seen the demonic possession through the description of the “Demonic possession” written by Mat Thuy. However, I also mention the following notes:

1 / Medical experience is not able to cure demon possession, if that person goes for a general medical examination, he or she will not be diagnosed with any medical condition. Since possession starts until after long time, “patient” is increasingly mentally and physically exhausted.

2) People those are possessed by demon often speak nonsense, the content does not relate to their current status. Example: being alone, but exclaiming: “Do not come here to arrest me, why are people so wicked!”.  Their mood is always anxious, sometimes panicked.

3 / They walk, stand, lay down, sit freely. They demand what demon demands; Some even claim to eat raw meat and drink animal’s blood. When they eat, they often devour and chew piggishly, sometimes glance to see if someone else comes to rob. The demon-possessed people do not sleep much, wandering, perhaps in the house, in the village, those places tend to be deserted areas, shrines, wilderness, ponds, cemeteries.

4 / They have unconscious eyes, white part of eyes is much, sometimes eyes look bloodshot. The nuance is sometimes panic, sometimes angry with the cutting curse. They always feel that they are hit, killed, being arrested by others.

5 / In short, the demon-possessed people always lose control in body, speech, and mind.

6 / They hate those who talk about the Dharma (Guru, Buddha, Dharma, Monks), scared when passing across the pagoda, Shangha’s place.

Above is the phenomenon of demonic possession, caused by the ordinary type of demon (low-level demons) to those who have the same spiritual frequency (biological force waves, spiritual force waves release heavy negative impulses due to the accumulation of “demon-nature”. However, there are some types of people who are demon-possessed but being revered by others. This is the delicate phenomenon of demonic possession, the people who are possessed could not realize only after a long time (sometimes several years to decades) after the demon leaves. This is a taking possession of human spirit delicately that only caused by middle-class, high-level demon what was demon-knighted. Those demons travel and possess human body freely. The following indicators to identify:

1 / The possessed people live normal human life, the difference is since being demon-possessed, they have supernatural power, extraordinary ability, called “demon magic” (ability to see and hear in very far distance, ability to guess or read people’s thoughts).

2) They have the ability to speak fluency (activity) but only the trick to hide intrigue, or for personal benefit. Some demon-possessed people could speak in poet words, tell stories very attractively.

3 / Content of talks of such a demon-possessed person, usually revolves the five desires (money, beauty, reputation, eating and sleeping), especially about amorous stories. They are scared to mention the dharma and the right view of Buddhism.

4 / If that person is possessed by high level demon, he or she tend to advise others to behave well, do good things and avoid bad things, but not mention the practice of liberation wisdom. In particular, they are very afraid of teachings about Buddhist precepts, especially the prohibition of sexual misconduct (personal liberation precept), and in the Bodhisattva precepts, they are afraid of talking about the precept prohibit wrong view and renounce Bodhicitta. In short, they encourage to do good things but do not dare to raise the flag of liberation from the three realms. This middle-class demon often enter to those who used to be his relatives, most of them are spiritual medium.

5 / They pretend to be serious but exposed through the expression in the over-decorated costumes, matchmaking, especially they value outside appearance; Or intentionally make themselves look miserable, austere.

6 / Speech and behavior are inconsistent (say in one way, do in another way).

7 / Sneaky cause bad karma such as killing, theft, sexual misconduct, misbehavior, abuse of substances, addictive things, they can camouflage in subtle form difficult to recognize until the disclosure. For example, recently Thai people are indignant at three monks use sponsors’ money to buy aircraft for travelling. More recently, Tuoi Tre Newspaper reported that the monks were helping the abbot of a large Buddhist temple in Chieng Mai Province, sexually abusing a teenage boy. When the victim’s parents accused, the abbot escaped.

It is important to emphasize that demons are exposed to the outside through uncouth appearance. In the initial stage, medical treatment might work. Since they are demon-possessed, their brain neurons are deflected, but the main channel system (the left channel, the right channel, the middle channel, of the 72,000 channels) is called vital force has not destroyed and closed completely yet. After being treated in a mental hospital, they will be conscious again.

However, those who are possessed by the high-class demon, it’s difficult for others to figure out  because they have the ethic, serious appearance, along with magic power of demon so it makes others revere. Only when we talk about the Dharma, giving prominence to precepts, breaking the wrong views, especially hanging high flag of liberation wisdom, we feel they are not interested in these topics. The fire of greed, hatred and delusion about their five desires are hidden by the cover “eating miserably”, “ugly costume” but storing money carefully, and just want to get more instead of renouncing. They often “take other’s things as their kindness” during the charity trips to hinterlands (what can be done by any religion, any organization). However, they are very eager to do such charity activities because everyone knows, while sitting in the pagoda, in their own houses, who knows and sees! What for? To polish their ego. Wherever they go, they often tell anyone and praise the Dharma, the Buddha and Shangha. However if we ask them to build up a rooms for the Buddhist practitioners, set up a library to support others acquire Buddhism knowledge, they ignore it. If somebody insults them, or hears someone scolding them, how will they react? Oh, they deeply resent, their faces are pale, their skin will change like a lizard, but they try to “patience” with a constrained smile, pretending that it is no problem with glory-infamy; compliment-damn. However, in the room they can not sleep, try to find out the way to destroy that person in any way. Their best way is to use their power to control. The second best is slander. Their third good way is to borrow the “punishment” that criticizes. The fourth way is if there is anyone praise or protect that person, they hate without saying, waiting for the chance to harm.

With this kind of demon-possessed people, we are not able to do anything and let cause-effect law work. Only when they scrutinize themselves, then they will be able to reduce and destroy their demon-nature which absorbed deeply into blood. If not, at the time of old age, or at the moment of close to death, demons leave the body, they become normal people, certainly will not be able to confront with karma effects. At that time, regret is too late. I end this article with the teachings of Thogme Zangpo, which is quoted in the book “Thirty-seven practices of all the Bodhisattvas”

 ” The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to scrutinize oneself
Continually and to rid oneself of faults whenever they appear.
For unless one checks carefully to find one’s own confusion,
One might appear to be practising Dharma, but act against it”

I will write the rest part in Lesson 11.
