    I am the author of The Nine Emperor Gods: A Study of Chinese Spirit-Medium Cults, Singapore: Times Books International, 1988.

    I am now doing research on the Nine Emperor Gods Vegetarian Festival in Thailand. I would appreciate very much if you could kindly grant me permission to reprint some of the pictures at your website for cross reference purposes.

    I have also published the following works on the Nine Emperor Gods:

    (1) “The Nine Emperor Gods in Malaysia,” in Proceedings of the Fifth International Symposium on Asian Studies, Hong Kong: Asian Research Service, 1983: 159-176.

    (2) “The Festival of the Nine Emperor Gods in Peninsular Malaysia”, in Cheu Hock Tong (ed.) Studies on the Chinese Religion in Malaysia, Singapore ad Indonesia: Chinese Beliefs and Practices in Southeast Asia, Kuala Lumpur: Pelanduk Publicaitons, 1993: 17-57.

    (3) “The Festival of the Nine Emperor Gods in Malaysia: Myth,Ritual and Symbol,” Asian Folklore Studies, Vol. LV-1, Nagoya, 1996: 49-72.

    In the event that your temple has the desire and resource to reprint or translate the above works into Chinese, I would be happy to work in collaboration with you.

    Thank you very much for your kind consideration.

    Yours sincerely,

    Dr Cheu Hock Tong
