text: Man-dzang Tung-long are apparently two spirits. Man-dzang is the one and Tung-long the other. They were originally men, now they roam with the wild pigs. Their foot-steps are very small.
text: Man has three souls (ya-ha).
text: Yimbu is apparently the land of the dead where the souls go to.
text: "The ha-ha goes to yimbu".
