Hua Miao spirit worship.
Diagnosis of sickness using an egg.

Information from Han Zhen-ming.


Wang Ming-jiís manuscript concerning spirit worship was brought to me in Weining by a Miao teacher called Han Zhen-ming. He remained some days assisting me with my preliminary reading of the text. In the course of conversation he told me of a method of diagnosis which was used if the shaman healer could not attend in person. Subsequently, at my request he wrote it down.
