Shi Gan Dang is the name of an ancient exorcist master from the magic mountain Tai Shan in Shandong Province, who was famous for his skills at capturing evils and demons. As more and more people all across China asked for his help, Shi Gan Dang could no longer handle all their requests in person, and so he arranged to have his name carved on stone tablets that would act as surrogates. Since then, the Shi Gan Dang tablets have been used extensively to block and subdue evil spirits. The Shi Gan Dang tablets work great as a charm against evil spirits. Evil spirits and demons could no longer disturb houses protected by the Shi Gan Dang tablets. They are simply too frightened by the mere sight of the name “Shi Gan Dang”.
