My friend had to play it, that is the first time he used to make dolls or Puppet, made of by the coconut shell as a head, the body from the wood, don’t forget wearing it clothes. Drawn the eyes, mouth and nose. In the two hands are given pencils to write. When the night arrived, He began to read with the mantra to call the spirit. When my friend ask the puppet who it was, the puppet wrote a name, I think that is a name of the person who has died because of suicide. Very scary moment. It hands write at papers who holded by my other friend. The puppet is writing from where he was and why he died Sometimes my friends ask the lottery number.

The mantra like this:
Come Jelangkung
Come Jelangkung
Come pick me up
Go home will delivered
Come Jelangkung
Come Jelangkung
