Batak dungan is a ritual to set the foundation of a person's physical and spiritual health. When a person's dungan is weak, he or she would be prone to sickness and misfortunes. One of the common ways to do this is by sacrificing a native chicken to bring back the lost dungan of the patient and strengthen it so the patient can withstand illnesses and any form of spiritual attacks. A person's dungan becomes weak or lost when he or she goes through a traumatic experience, is cursed, or a malevolent spirit stole it from him/her.

Thank you for sharing. In my tradition, batak dungan is done after healing the patient who suffered from sickness caused by spiritual attack such possession and sorcery. The purpose of this is to elevate and strengthen the patient's soul or dungan so that the person won't be vulnerable again to spiritual attacks or for the person won't be affected by the energy of his gabay or spirit allies. We also perform this ritual to empower our implements used for healing and protection....
