Himapant Animals

The Himapant Animals, and the Phenomenon of “Khong Khuen”

Himapant Animals are Mythical animals from the Himapant forest of India (an ancient Legend). The Animals consist of a whole Pantheon of amazing creatures, such as the ‘Kinnari’ and ‘Kinnorn’ (Half man, half bird – those of you who have visited a Thai Temple may have seen some of these figures guarding the Temple grounds, along with the ‘Yaks’ (Green and red Giants with big teeth).

There are so many different Himapant animals, most of them are mixed together from 2 or 3 different animal types, such as ‘Macchaanu’; Hanuman’s son, born of hanuman the monkey General, and ‘Nang Suwanna Macchaa’, a kind of mermaid. Macchaanu has a monkeys body and face, but posesses the tail of a fish! The Himapant animals represent elemental powers and Boddhisattwas (Compassionate protectors), and thus are considered very powerful as tattoo Magic.

One phenomenon that is apparently unexplainable about Yant tattoo is ‘Khong Khuen’, a kind of posession, where the tattooee recieves the tattoo of the Himapant animal and upon receiving the ‘Kataa’ (Mantra) blown into his tattoo from the Monk, he then becomes taken over by the spirit of the Himapant animal he recieved as a tattoo.

I have seen this phenomenon many times, and find it to be unexplainable.Some people may fake it i am sure, but some of the cases i have seen are undoubtably authentic. The subject is completely innocent to what happened when he was in trance.

Thais believe that the Himapant animals can rise to protect you in times of danger..but i also believe that they can rise up if you behave wrongly and do not respect the rules of wearing a Yant tattoo.

Anyone wishing to see this phenomenon should visit the Temple on ‘Master Day’ where thousands of disciples throng to pay respects to the deceased Master, Hlwong Por Phern.

There is such a massive repertoire of Himapant Animals the list is almost endless. As you can see from the extensive collection we have gathered here on this page. Hese are only a handful in comparison to the number that are to be found in Thai mythology. I hope to publish more examples in the future too.
