“The Sect of Strange Cults pretends to be the Father of all Prophets” teaches the disciples
"Drinking and eating waste, rubbing off the body" to treat illnesses, becoming "Uat Utri" to create faith among the people to be superstitious.
“Freak beliefs” still appear as a parallel part of society always.
Notice that from difficult times, “Thai people” often have a mental attachment to turn to dependency.

"Claiming to be eating wind", there are people who have been deceived for 55 years.
"Ordained in Buddhism" can finally attain enlightenment as an arahant.
Another story, "Phra Pahiitaru Chiriya Thera" had a career in trading by boat all over the country until the monsoon sea caused a shipwreck. He was saved alone by using a floating board to land. that the body has nothing left to hide its shame had brought leaves and bark to clothe him and asked for food "People think that he is an arahant."

Later, Maha Brahma, an old friend of the past life, transformed into a reminder.
“You are not an Arahant.” Now the Buddha is an Arahant, residing at Wat Phra Chetawan.
therefore went to ask for ordination from the Lord Buddha until he attained the enlightenment as an Arahant
reflects that some people intentionally make people believe;
and some have no intention in the first place
When there are people who are worshiped as magicians, they find rituals that are superior to normal people.
Bring what has been worshiped as a mental anchor
This kind of matter has always existed until now. As for the “Strange Sect” that appears in the news, it is only a small part.

Therefore, this exists in Thai society, spreading endlessly in many provinces of the country at the moment.” Asst. Prof. Dr. Kwan
If talking about "superstitions" there are many branches, divided into 2 groups: the first group ... "white superstitions" focus on practicing Dharma.

In fact, in the past
"People who study superstitions, magic, spells" never hope for benefits.

Once again, someone said that
“Some witch doctors study the occult, increase the power of magic to be strong” by drinking the whole corpse of a dead woman.
