Report: Encounters with the naga

The phaya naga fireballs of the Mekong river is a phenomenon well known throughout Thailand and Laos. The expulsion of red fireballs from the river itself is seen as evidence of the occurrence of giant snakelike creatures living underneath the murky surface. Conflicting sources normally place the nagas in the Mekong, the sunken city of Bhogavati in Nagaland or within the ethereal Himmapan forest itself. Tertöns recently unveiled texts which they deciphered only partially and it led a researcher to the greater Krung Thep area. The nagas continue to elude man, yet at times both tertön and consort have reported a strange premonition while at sea in the area.
