An Amazing Classic Brought to Life!

The Whispering Buddha is one of the greatest and strangest classics in magic. Greatest because of its simple and direct effect, yet strange because probably no one has actually performed it!

That's about to change. Fifteen years ago, Docc Hilford developed a workable method with his friend the late German mentalist, Punx. The result was a routine that maintained the clean directness of the original effect and made performance easy on the entertainer.


The mage shows a beautiful 5 inch, antique statue of the Buddha from Thailand. A participant writes a wish, a person and a location where they could both enjoy the wish on a prayer paper. They also think of a question and writes it on the paper. The prayer paper is burned and in a whisper the idol discloses the wish, the person's name, the destination of joy and answers the personal question. THE SPECTATOR HEARS THE WHISPERS!

In the 1920s, Joe Ovette marketed the effect that was subsequently published in Corinda's, Thirteen Steps to Mentalism. In that version, the method was simple; you read the lips of the participant when she whispered her question to the statue! Simple, however near impossible to accomplish.

How rare are simple, direct tricks that completely baffle magicians with clever methods while emotionally affecting an audience? This is one of those rare gems. A true reputation maker.

Here's what you get:
  • A beautiful, 5" Thai Buddha
  • A velvet carrying bag
  • A pad of special billet papers
  • Scripted story and instructions
