I don't know if you do read my previous comment about the rules of posting materials but since you did the same mistakes again, I bet you don't. put links or citation to your post, because we won't going to go easy on plagiarism and any post breaking the rules will be removed.

again, when it comes to posts must insightful, rich in knowledge and come from reliable sources. so, I personally wondering how is this post is giving useful information for members when they just comes in form of pictures without any descriptions or details. and I don't get a thing just looking to these pictures.

I can't post any external links for awhile since I'm new and I figure since all of you are such experts on vampires these images would be instantly recognizable. Smile sorry

Venator,

We the Administrators (Lia, Seb and I) welcome you to the site. I hope you will not take it against us or the Moderators to constantly remind you the rules of engagement in the site. Particularly helpful materials that will enlighten all. I cannot help but feel a tinge of sarcasm in your post saying that since "all" are experts about vampires the images you posted would be recognizable. This site is made to educate members on this path and I can see that you want to be able to help too but then not all are yet knowledgeable when it comes to history and such. So I think the other Admins and Moderators and members would agree with me that it wouldn't hurt to put sources to your post. Or put descriptions to your post. If you cannot put links yet then why not site the website or the source you've taken the information from? It can just be pretty easy just saying you got it from the website called _______ right? So again please adhere by the rules and play nice.


Blessed Be,

1. the vetal you mentioned is a ghost, not a vampire

In Hindu folklore, the vetala is a ghoul-like being that haunts cemeteries and takes demonic possession of corpses. They make their displeasure known by troubling humans. They can drive people mad, kill children, and cause miscarriages, but also guard villages.

They are hostile spirits of the dead trapped in the 'twilight zone' between life and afterlife. These creatures can be repelled by the chanting of holy mantras. One can free them from their ghostly existence by performing their funerary rites. Being unaffected by the laws of space and time, they have an uncanny knowledge about the past, present, and future and a deep insight into human nature. Therefore many sorcerers seek to capture them and turn them into slaves.

Although the information in the later comments are interesting and help us learn, these pictures do not. Please try to add some information to the pictures next time so that even if we do know what they are or where they came from we can still try and learn something.
