Ghost chasing is a common practice at Amman temples(Goddess temples) In Tamilnadu, India. People particularly women are affected by some psycho Problems are said to be of ghosts or devils. The victims behave indifferently And could not be cured by any system of medicine. At last, people come and worship their traditional rural deities which are believed to be capable of chasing ghosts and evil spirits. The chasing rituals are being done by the rural priests along with drums etc. It is a small village and the temple is lookafter by the rural priests who perform poojas to the deities.The temple itself is situated near the village burial ground. Apart from the temple priests there are so many local priests(black magiciens called kodangis)who are not concerned with temple authorities, engaging in these devil/ghost chasing activities.For which they collect money. The kodangi ask the woman (who is under the influence of the ghost) about the details and information of the ghost.The ghost possessed women will reveal the occupant. Then the kodangis with the drums and other equipments chase the ghost away by cutting the womans hair followed by some rituals. Few years back I visited a village called Melmalaiyanur near Thiruvannamalai. The village is famous for angala parameswari amman temple.Every new moon day it attracts thousands of people from all walks of life.People believed to be possessed by some evil spirit are benefited by visiting this temple and performing poojas,rituals and having traditional treatment of ghost chasing. Here I am presenting a video (with out sound)of ghost chasing performance done to a young woman.
