Tibetan Buddhist Ritual | STAR (2)
Human sacrifice is as old a practice as the length of existence of the human race. Since the very day man rose, humans with concepts of power or energy came to believe that the deity they worship could be appeased with souls. If not souls, then at least the very flesh and bones that make up any one individual. If not in the name of a deity, there are some people that believe that the sacrifice of a human life will empower their own bodies. Some believe that ingesting the flesh of another human will bring them something supernatural or even allow them to become inhuman themselves.
Tibetan Buddhist believe that the sacrifice of a human being is absolutely necessary to unlock parts of the soul that could never be unlocked while strictly on a path of purity. Such is why these people believe that there are two kinds of Tibetan Buddhist and only one of of them is known because the alternative is nothing short of an abomination. Not many walks of life are willing to admit to having cannibals among their people openly. Additionally, the Cannibal Buddhists are not welcomed because they are all people who reject traditional Buddhism. They make up their own beliefs and follow their own rules. In other words, they are rejected for their transgressions.
Among these Cannibal Buddhist, there is a different belief that is most notable for its cruel acts and disregard for morals. It is truly heinous. They believe that a young child must be sacrificed, the young purity of which will strengthen the power they receive. They look for a specific child - a male child that was born prematurely yet is not hindered by any defects. Often times, if they cannot find a fitting child, they will settle for a virgin that has not yet wedded. The ritual works the same way for either one.
The sacrifice will be abducted in the middle of the night. The victim will be mutilated slowly over the course of three days as the ritual takes place. Each limb is slowly cut from the body and eaten, during which they use a series of spells and dark magic to keep the sacrifice alive until they are allowed to die. When there is nothing but the torso left, they use mallets, hammers and large stones to crush the torso, effectively finally allowing the sacrifice to die. They eat the majority of the flesh. They then gather whatever might be left - usually bones - and crush it further into smaller pieces. They mix it with tea, barley flour and rotten yak butter and then feed it to a vulture.
The vulture is left to sit for seven full days and seven full nights, during which it grows increasingly ill. When the vulture collapses and appears near death, it is held down and split perfectly in half, from head to toe. Inside, will be the manifested power earned by the ritual.
This piece is just one of the many results of one of these rituals. It is capable of any form of magic that you can think of - dark, light or even dual magic. It acts like a gateway to power and so it grants any power you can imagine just by willing it into existence, which is why the Cannibal Buddhists value these so much. Additionally, it allows true sight to all things, which means nothing can be hidden from you. Anything that hides beneath any sort of veil, whether it be power that someone is suppressing, one who is attempting to impersonate someone else or an ancient relic of some sort, you will be able to see it for what it is and even draw from it if you so wish. With this piece, we encourage your creativity. It'll only make you more powerful.
You are getting one of the faces of the Cannibal Tibetan Buddhists who participated in the ritual as well as the bone fragments of the sacrifice, which act as power sources for the Buddhists. You will get one of the faces you see here along with two or three of the bone fragments.
