Collection of my Thai Religious Amulets/Pendants - Message Board/Guestbook

Religious Thai Amulets are immensely popular among many Thai locals or even the Chinese that residing in South East Asia - probably most followers never have the chance to worship the religion and hopefully with the little image that we wear on the body can provide some form of relief. As I mentioned in the site, probably it takes a Thai to create such a high quality website features specifically on these lovely collective pendants. As I can never be claimed knowledgeable in this strong thai traditions but since I am a web developer in nature, I create this solely for personal consumption and hope to provide a linkage among all passionate collectors. Some of the opinion presented within the site was entirely personal and I do not wish to influence any decision prior to any potential purchases or disposal. So, this forum is intended to provide a channel for all to make use of it to present your own individual views. Enjoy.

As this site is specifically created for this purpose - so, please don't mail me other than constructive suggestions or rectifying mistakes found in this site, thanking you. Since this is a non-profitable resource site - The developer of this site reserves the rights to censor or delete any inappropriate, unrelated, misleading or excessively hostile messages posted herein. If your intention is to llok out or disposing your collection, you are also wecome to do so (as long as maintaining some basic ethic not to cheat anyone.

If you are interested in Wat Paknam and/or LP Sodth background, leo has a site at http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/leofoo/Thai-amulets/Wat-PakNam/index.htm and if your interest is only confined to his amulet creations, then skipped the rest and go right onto http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/leofoo/Thai-amulets/Wat-PakNam/WPN_version_history/index.htm

A few decades ago, someone reported that the plane was crushed between Thai Burmese border, the sole survivor was said to have been wearing a WPN which made the image form instantly popular. Not too long ago, the newspaper report that a poor Thai guy who won the biggest lottery jackpot in Thailand confessed he prayed for help of his WPN and vowed to donate 1 million for temples but I guess LPSodh has always been a great guru of modern Thai Buddhist history and he never thought he will be associated with all these (esp. the latter episode). But in short, Thai thinks WPN is great, other for protection, is good for businesses. I don't have one..just to share what I knew. Sometimes, local legends do need some juicy stories to make people believing in it, a made-up shoreline or if it has some truth in it, aku pun tak tahu...but most often, people tend to forget LP Sodh's great teaching and rediscovered Dhamakaya medidation method and put more emphasisi onto his "Powered" creations. That is all..

No wonder there was a stage the Erawan Buddha loation was closed. Looked like the sentiment was sensitive due to the cause. I was told it was closed for renovation. Thanks for update, Uncle.

Personally, Raymond Goh as well as Wichian have a series of some very high quality WRK images. Another is Purt from Thailand. I am not sure if they are selling, why don't you try to ask (Except for Purt, no one will blast you for asking, isn't it ?).

一则关于四面佛今年的消息: " .. 《香港文匯報》转法新社报道,泰国曼谷的著名景点四面佛在当地时间2006年3月21日凌晨,被一名27岁的泰国伊斯兰教徒帕克狄普波尔用大铁锤猛然棰击后损毁,仅剩下半条腿和基座。事件目击者称,帕克狄普波尔在企图逃跑时与保安警卫、清洁工人和过路商贩发生冲突,结果肇事男子被殴当场昏迷,送院后不治身亡。 泰国警方称,肇事男子患有精神病,过去10年有多次进出精神病院的纪录。事发前当晚精神病发作,手持铁锤离家而去,家人打电话报警,但没想到出现这样的情况。两名街道清洁工人遭警方逮捕,并被控谋杀罪。人民网报道说,泰国副总理素拉革下令重铸四面佛,重铸最快需要两个月。...". 不知是否前兆, 六个月不到, 今年泰国政局大变。。。

Hi everyone, I am looking for a genuine Somdej made and blessed by Somdej Phra Phuttacharn Toh. I really do not know where to start. I do not have any amulet by myself and I just started to search for one last week or so. If anyone knows where to find a Somdej by Luang Po Toh, please leave the information in this forum and I shall reply. Best wishes

-Jimmy Lee- 4-Faced Buddha's real name is actually Brahma Sahampati. He is the king of the Brahma heavens ie a Maha Brahma. He first attended on the Buddha during Buddha's human birth as prince Siddharta along with Lord Indra. He also attended on Buddha when He first attained enlightenment and requested that the Buddha teach the Dhamma to all sentient beings. WE HAVE A LOT TO THANK HIM FOR. These devas (gods) are truly very highly achieved devas and are innumerable. They also abide in heavens which are Formless, depending on their progression on the Jhanas levels (meditative absorption). Read : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhist_cosmology (start at Brahma heavens).

I don't feel there's any truth at all at the fact that it is inappropriate for women to wear Brahma amulets. His four heads represents the Four Great Virtues of Metta, Karuna, Mudita & Upekkha which are know as the Brahma viharas (abidings), see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brahmavihara. These four virtues have to be 'perfected' before one can gain rebirth in a Brahma heaven. The Brahma you referred to which has something to do with a female is the Brahma mentioned in the Vedas (Hinduism) and his creation Gayatri. I'm not really sure but I think his name is Baka Brahma. Even he has been converted to Buddhism by the Buddha.

All Brahmas are protectors of Buddhism, whichever level they are on. Some don't even have to reincarnate any more ie they attain arhatship (become a lou-han) in their respective heaven ie like the Brahmas in the Suddhavassa heavens. Always remember that they are always absolutely unbias, impartial, ever compassionate & wise towards ALL sentient beings and that there is no greater love in our realm than a mother's love. Idam Sabba Sattanam Hotu, Sukhita Hontu Sabbe Satta. Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu.
