Due to the overwhelmingly enthusiastic response to Peter Jenx’s ‘Thai Occult 2,’ Araxes press is delighted to provide a companion volume for the book that started it all – Jenx’s indispensable classic, ‘Thai Occult 1.’ Originally published in 2018 as ‘The Thai Occult,’ this groundbreaking work sold out immediately six years ago and has been a much-sought-after rarity ever since. TTO1 provides over 400 pages of in-depth interviews with Thai Ajarns as they reveal long-held secrets regarding gods, ghosts, graveyard necromancy, sacred herbs, dangerous minerals, and magical tattoos. More importantly, Jenx’s books provides cultural context into the roots of an unbroken animist tradition of Buddhist folk sorcery that reveals the deep spiritual creativity of the people of Thailand. Containing over a hundred gorgeous, full-color photos of Jenx’s unparalleled access to the inner workings of the Ajarns, this volume will be a stunning addition to any library, and the perfect shelf-companion to ‘Thai Occult 2.’ As with its popular predecessor, it is expected to sell out soon!”
