Description:Translation (by Seng Pan) I am going to tell about how Katsing Nat (it's a kind of spirits which arises from violent death) materialized and how it entered into human. A long time ago, there lived a man and his younger sister in a village. One day, the man set out to make money. So, he left behind his younger sister at home. He could earn a lot of money. But he was assassinated because others were jealous of him. However, even after death, he was tied to his younger sister. He couldn't leave her behind and pass over since he was the only one who took care of her. Therefore, his younger sister was possessed by him. When she was controlled by him, she spoke a lot and everything she mentioned was also the truth. In a short time, she became a well-known person. Later, she got married and had five children; two sons and three daughters. As she lived on that life, many ladies came and asked her about their husbands when the husbands hadn't come back home for a long time. They requested her to find their husbands and promised to give money as much as she wished. As she needed money, she accepted their requests. So, she took the money and let them wait her reply for a week. When her brother got into her body, she told him the names of men and asked where those men were. Since her brother was a ghost, he went around and looked for the men. While he entered his younger sister body again, he told them where their men were. Then those ladies requested again to make their husbands to come back home. And he also helped them. As the younger sister accomplished the work well, she had got a lot of money. And those money spoiled her children very much. Moreover, nobody in the village could speak about her. One day, while three grandmothers were having conversation, one from a far place was curious and asked the name of the girl. Then the girl suddenly appeared in front of them. When they looked at her, they saw the blood came out from her forehead and heard, "Look at me! I am the one you wish to meet." Because of it, they were shocked and no one could ever talk about her again. After a period of time, there happened a war and they had to escape. That time, the girl kept her five children in a place. She also could evade bullets and transform into tiger. She escaped from it by transforming her appearance. As she lived on that life, she could earn a lot of money by her brother and became so rich. However, since she was girl and getting old, she couldn't stand her brother's power and got sick when he entered her body. So her brother told that he would find another man's body to stay in. He planned to leave his sister and go out to look for a man. But his sister still insisted on keeping him in her body. He didn't accept her insisting and said, "I earned five boxes of money for you. I will take three boxes since I have to find another person and I will leave two boxes to you." After her brother, Katsing Nat, left, she didn't know what to do for living. In addition, her eldest son died of drug overdose. She felt so hurt and realized that her son died like that because of what she did and her brother also left her. Finally, she gave up on calling Katsing nat and became a religious since she grieved deeply over the death of her son.
