MALAYSIAN CHINESE GOES IN TRANCE DURING CHINESE HUNGRY GHOST FESTIVAL
IN MALACCA.
A Malaysian Chinese (C) goes into a trance during the Chinese Hungry
Ghost Festival in the town of Cheng in the southern state of Malacca,
August 12, 2003. During the festival, prayers are offered to the dead
and offerings of food and paper-made models such as tv, refrigerators,
and sport cars, are burnt to appease the wandering spirits. It is
believed that the gates of Hell are opened during the month and the
dead ancestors return to visit their relatives. The Hungry Ghost
Festival is celebrated every year during the seventh month of the
Chinese lunar calendar. Picture taken 12, 2003. REUTERS/Bazuki
