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.

I regularly checked here (perhaps the only place I do visit regularly) and good to see new things are uploaded. I guess YKT has his point. Metallion collecting pun tak sedap bagi ku but I think it is also a variation in amulet collecting - so, I respect others who do or does. "faked" is a sensitive word in amulet collecting but it was a result of some ill-minded traders who seek quick profit in this RM250 million industries of amulet trade in and around Thailand and nearby countries. I have seen basket full of amulets in Hat Yai's morning plaza of various kind and forms which sometimes makes me wonder what the hell is going on in that Buddhist nation. The point I wish to make is, it is okay to ask but not to make others raise suspicion over a displayed unit(s). I may feel rotten over my collection too when I hear one but I guess even after years of collecting on collectibles, I may have acquired basic experience in this stuffs but I still feel weak at times over the ten of thousands in various amulet forms - imagine plus the version history and sometimes, even a tiny cracks or extra-ingredients found could have leveled a similar form into different classes. I have been always telling people interested in this hobby (or belief) that there is no differentiation or classes of Lord Buddha, it is only the perception of individuals. Below the line, there are images made by Guru Monks and another next level down, there are amulets produced from different objectives (such as fund raising for reconstruction of old temples etc.) The question of which Buddha is more powerful does not exist, but in many ways most of us having the strong belief in relating the thought which monk is more powerful (esp. than the followed-up ones as legends have made it to be). Well, probably all of us cannot (or have not) be a Monk and we are just expecting others who did could channel some of their "power" to us haha..

When we are not sure, we ask and seek. When we have no proper way to seek - usually we referred those who may possess the knowledge. I know everyone is still learning (so do I) and it can be turned into hobby after the strong religious belief behind the intention. In relation to version history ( I referred to a simple example of the Wt Paknam site recently created (I think so, as I have not seen this link prior prior to my last visit to this site); I have owned one WPN which a Thai friend told me was the third version, the displayed units in that page had me felt uncomfortable because mine was not close to those, but after reading, I am relieved as molds and time of produce are different . To get an identical piece which would require modern days "manufacturing" process of precision molding and production; version 5, 6th and version seventh could reach such "perfect" state but even many Thai folks thought they are not up to the level as compared to earlier ones as they are not produced by the "real" Guru of LP Sodh. Why, simply we think he has more "power" - forgetting the fact he produces them for the sake of fund raising... After writing these, I am not sure what I intend to convey, but all I wish to relay is, we should also spare some time study the real teaching of Buddhism behind the amulets. Peace.

Buddhist Metal Pendants have quite a long history (but personally, that is not my favourite sector). I was told many Thai think amulets with power or wood based production are difficult to maintain and hence thought of an alternate solution in choosing metal. Naturally, cost and skill are up with this form. Early days people are still having difficulties in making metal pendants but modern days pendants are more perfect in their details. I'd guess each temple which decided going for this range of production may all depends on budget and the appointtees of the "factory" in creating the mold. I would like to stay neutral in this issue but instead of asking, Alex, I would rather hear why and what causing you to suspect this is not as "genuine", haha... Well, I still have no interest in Metallion Pendants collection but love to hear and learn more from other kaki (gurus) here....
