Kau Cim Fortune Telling Chi-Chi Sticks
Chinese daily fortune teller
Chien Tung (Qiāntǒng)
One of the oldest known methods of fortune telling in the world
Kau Cim is a Chinese fortune telling practice of requesting
answers from the sacred oracle lot. It is a practice that originated in
China and known as Oracle of Guan Yin in Buddhist traditions. It is based on
the Book of Changes (I Ching, Yijing). In the USA, a version has been sold
since 1915 under the name Chi Chi Sticks.
Kau Cim Bucket is a small bamboo handheld cylinder bucket. Kau Cim Sticks
are a number of flat sticks stored in the bucket. Numbers in
Chinese characters are inscribed on the stick. They resemble a wide and
modified version of incense sticks. This method of fortune
telling involves shaking a box full of bamboo sticks numbered
1 to 78 in such a manner that just one number would
mysteriously jump out of the box. This number would then be
your fortune and an interpreter would read it to you from his
book. Here the computer reads it for you.
The fortune begins with
"Your luck for today". If the number is shaken out after
sundown, the fortune refers to the following day.
You will also receive "Your fortune" and "Important events" that will
occur. Before you shake the box, you must think of a "Wish",
and at the end of your fortune you will find out if the wish
will come true or not.
First make your WISH.
