Miao spirits that were worshipped and those that caused sickness
6. Fanned by the zi-qiao-bao.

(Also described as encountering smoke.)

Compiled by Yang Yung-xin.


In his list of the Miao spirits, (M371),Yang Yung-xin suggested that the sickness caused by the zi-qiao-bao could be cured by cutting off and burning the beard of a goat,. This had the effect of "penning" the spirit. The word used is that commonly used for penning cattle. This form of treatment, however, seems unrelated to that described by Wang Ming-ji (M361) and here repeated by Yang Yung-xin, except that in both cases a goat was involved.
