Tai Soo Yah at Lim Jetty, Weld Quay, Penang – Final Night, Part 2

” The Journey back to Hell and the Underworld by the Tai Soo Yah ”

The start of the religious ceremony led by a Taoist Spiritual Medium, the Twa Pek with the fan. The Medium is always associated with the vices of smoking opium and drinking alcohol ( thus in modern times – cigarettes and stout ).The image of the Taoist King of Hades also known as the Tai Soo Yah locally was then carried by hand by the Temple Officials across the trail of burnt ashes of the joss paper to outside the praying area. Preparations were made for a short procession towards the Kuan Yin Temple along Pitt Street nearby and back to the road junction for burning of the paper effigy.

The internet at my local network is acting up again as I was trying to upload the last 5 photographs since 10.00 pm last night. Now it is 2.10 pm on Wednesday, 24 August 2016 I has just managed to be successful in uploading the rest of the photographs. My e-mails for blogging had piled up to over 2,500 in numbers. My apologies, folks.

From Wikipedia:-

Taboos

As the ghosts and the suffering spirits will come out from the hell to visit their homes during the 7th lunar month (the ghost month), many things should be avoided during this month including the ghost day:

  1. Do not stroll at night.
  2. Do not swim. It is said that drowned evil ghosts might try to drown people in order to find victims for them to rebirth.
  3. As the month is considered to be inauspicious, do not move to a new house, start new businesses or marry.
  4. Do not hang clothes outside at night.
  5. Do not pick up coins or money found on the street and if one does, never bring any home.
  6. Do not step on or kick the offerings by the roadside. If someone were to step on any offerings by accident, he or she should apologize aloud to ameliorate the situation
  7. Do not wear red because ghosts are attracted to red.
  8. Don’t sing and whistle as these may attract ghosts.
  9. Keep away from the walls as it is believed that ghosts like sticking to walls.
  10. If someone is born during the ghost month, avoid celebrating his or her birthday at night. It is better to celebrate during the daytime.
  11. Do not go out at 12 midnight as the ghost may approach you for food and other offerings for them.
  12. Do not open umbrellas in the house. It may attract spirits
  13. Do not take selfies or take videos. Ghost may appear in it. You may never know
  14. Do not sleep facing the mirror or something reflective. It guides the ghosts.
