THE ANCIENT TAOIST PRINCIPLE OF RECIPROCITY
IF YOU DO ME A FAVOR, I WILL RETURN A GREATER FAVOR TO YOU BUT IF YOU HURT ME, I WILL NOT OFFER THE OTHER CHEEK. IF YOU INSULT ME, I WILL PUNCH YOU; IF YOU PUNCH ME, I WILL BREAK YOUR ARM; IF YOU BREAK MY ARM, I WILL BREAK YOUR LEG; AND IF YOU BREAK MY LEG, I WILL PUT YOU IN A COFFIN

Hungry Ghost Month and Festival - Warning and Taboos


1) During Hungry Ghost Festival, do not badmouth (Christians love to do this) in the public and on the street about the bullshit of existence of ghosts and the stupidity of Hungry Ghosts Festival. There are cases that folks who have done that end up with crooked mouth or the leg got swollen and need to seek help from Taoist Master immediately to get rid of the ghostly punishment.

2) Do not curse and swear and intentionally kick the burnt joss papers and food offerings on the ground when You (especially the Christian) don't believe in ghosts and Hungry Ghost Festival.There are real cases that some youngsters (usually the Christians) start to have mental illness and cannot continue their studies. They either end up in Mental Hospital , or they have to lower their pride and seek help immediately from Taoist Master or Tang-Ki (Spirit Medium) in Taoist Temple.

3) Do not sit on the 1st roll of "empty" seats of the makeshift stage  (known as 歌台 - Go-Tai). These chairs are reserved for the ghosts. There use to be cases that  folks, either being stubborn, skeptical or un-informed, sit down on "empty" seat and later got possessed and pass out.  After recovering from the ghostly  attack,  the victim had to obediently burnt joss papers and do offerings to apologize to the spirit being  that has been offended.


4) Address the ghosts as "Good Brothers"(好兄弟), "Uncles" (叔伯) and not "Ghosts"(鬼).

5) If You strike 4D Lottery with the help from the Wandering Ghosts, remember to thank them by going back to the same spot and do another offerings and burn Joss Papers and Hell Bank Notes to them as a form gratitude.
