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.

once again, I would like to enquire as to where one might meet like minded collectors to trade and exchange amulets. Is there an association or the like in Malaysia and Singapore? Please do reply... I have some interesting pieces which I have brought from Thailand, where I have lived for the past ten years. I will be returning soon....

I read a Chinese Paper – China Press dated 10th August 2009 (page A15). This news was published by Wat Uttamaram. The making of Tok Raja’s Phra Pidta was narrated by Chao Kuan (Brother of Chao Khun Chan – the 2nd Chief Monk of Kelantan after Tok Raja).

Chao Kuan stated that the very first batch of Phra Pidta was made by Tok Raja after 1942. During that period, the 2nd World War broke out and the Japanese army invaded Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. In order to protect Wat Uttamaram, a group of voluntary patrollers was formed to protect Wat Uttamaram.

Hence, Tok Raja created the very first batch of Phra Pidta to grant their safety and protection (I was told by one of the Wat Uttamaram’s bomoh that it was made less than 30pieces).

Each Phra Pidta took 7 to 9days to complete. Before Tok Raja made the Phra Pidta, he would take the measurement on the top segment of the devotee’s right forth finger. The Phra Pidta was created according to the measurement for the triangular outer shape where the Pidta’s image was crafted.

Chao Kuan emphasized that this is the only phim created during that period. The last and second batch was created during Tok Raja’s later part of his life. It was a totally new design. However, all Tok Raja’s Phra Pidta was hand-made and no mold was used in the production.

All Tok Raja’s Phra Pidta was created using Tok Raja’s Phra Pidta Katha. This katha is only passed down to Wat Uttamaram’s bomohs and Chief Monk. Nobody outside Wat Uttamram will know this Katha.

In addition, the very first batch of Phra Pidta was created to be inherited by the next of kin to serve as a family’s inheritance and only pass down to his heir. The heir must be closely related by blood to the devotee.

There was an incident where a nephew loaned the Phra Pidta and put it on his neck as he was travelling to the chaotic Southern Thailand. For the next 7 days, the nephew experienced abnormalities. One quoted example was dizziness and this stop only when the Phra Pidta was removed from the nephew’s neck. This has proved that the first batch of Phra Pidta is only pass down to the heir whom is closely related by blood.

According to Chao Kuan, the making of the Phra Pidta was very complicated and that’s why every Phra Pidta took 7 to 9days to complete as mentioned earlier. Many herbs were used but the most essential material (a must have ingredient) would be the juice of the fruits from the Jangrak tree. Nobody was allowed to go near to Tok Raja because the fruits would emit certain “energy” and cause them to have rashes with unbearable skin irritation (itchy). Once the material was done, Tok Raja would craft the Phra Pidta using a small knife. The Phra Pidta doesn’t look any impressive compare to those using mold. It would then soak it in tea water to enhance the hardness of the Phra Pidta.

Tok Raja would throw the Phra Pidta on the floor and the Phra Pidta must bounce back higher than the height of the devotee. If not, this Phra Pidta will not be qualified as done. Next, the Phra Pidta was put inside a container full of sesame oil. Tok Raja would continuously chant the Tok Raja’s Phra Pidta katha until the Phra Pidta surface. Lastly, the devotee would come and kneeled before Tok Raja to receive the Phra Pidta. Tok Raja would bless the devotee during the receipt of the Phra Pidta.

It was also mentioned that if the Phra Pidta did not surface, Tok Raja would inscribe yants on the Phra Pidta and bless them again. All Phra Pidta made by Tok Raja was unique due to the above process.

Last but not least, Tok Raja is not only best in making Phra Pidta. He is also equally good in creating Golden Needles for safety, Tongkats for 108 purposes and a pair of Gold and Silver takrut (which is at the size of approximately 6mm). The pair of Gold and Silver takrut is meant for placing them underneath your eyes. Tok Raja would not indiscriminately create them, unless it was necessary and depending on the destiny of the devotee.

if I wanted to sell some of my spare amulets, who do I sell to? And is there a website or association where collectors get together to trade and sell amulets? I have many old spare amulets, ranging from somdej to wat rakang to loung phu thuat wat chang hai... all of them are first blocks... not reproductions.

Message from Stan:
Woo, you posed a good question as to whether we have a formal Society or Association in Malaysia or Singapore for Amulets Collectors where you can share or trade your amulets. Perhaps any brothers/sisters out there could assist.
