Publication Date : 02-09-2013
PETALING JAYA: A woman claims that she has been chosen to take over from Master Chou Kin Nam or popularly known as Bai Long Wang ("White Dragon King), the famed Chinese Thai mystic who was a popular spiritual adviser to the celebrities, M'sian Chinese-language daily China Press reported
The woman, who claimed to be a Malaysian, made the announcement at Master Chou’s funeral at the Bai Long Wang Temple in Surasak Sri Racha, Chonburi, Thailand on Saturday.
The followers of Master Chou refuted her claim but they did not chase her out from the temple as the late spiritual adviser had never chased anyone away.
Prior to this, they have never seen her before.
The woman, who is believed to be in her 40s, sat at the funeral for about 10 minutes before leaving.
Master Chou, 76, died on August 17.
Many Hong Kong and Taiwanese artistes including Jackie Chan, Eric Tsang, Tony Leung and Andy Lau are said to have sought his blessings and career advice.
