How to Contain the Essence of Life :
A Socio-Psychological Comparison of a Thai Custom
A detailed study of a Thai folk tradition that seeks to get in touch with one's soul, or khwan. This may appear surprising in a Buddhist country, when Buddhism does not recognise such a concept. In her study Heinze traces the origins and connections of the tradition with Burmese, Cambodian, Chinese, Indian, Malay and Tibetan influences in Thai culture. 172 pages.
