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.

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.

Dear Mr KH Tan, I agree with you! If the forum and site is good, there's no need for repeated advertising and poaching.

Astracts of Phra Ajaan Dune Atulo (Phra Rajavuddhacariya)
m. One of them had a tusk of wild boar, another a tiger's fang, another a rhinoceros horn. Each of them claimed extraordinary powers for his talimans, so one of them asked Luang Pu, ''Hey Luang Pu. Which of these is more extraordinary and good than the others for sure?'' Luang Pu seemed especially amused and said with a smile, ''None of them are good, none of them are extraordinary at all. They all come from common animals.'' From the book titled; 'Gifts He Left Behind'

Dear KekWei, forum owners and rest of the amulets sellers, I would sincerely hope that you guys do not keep on posting irelevant topics in this forum to promote and markets your sites for personal gains or rewards. I find that this site is very constructive for understanding of buddhism practices and studies. Thus lets do not let any financial gains or business objective crowd the mind of those interested in buddhism. If you post one or two times, it is alright as those interested will browse through your sites if they want (those really want to buy, get anything or know somethings on your sites will sure know how to find it). But if we keep on seeing posts by you guys, then something is not right???? Last but not least, i hope that no one is offended by above mentioned as I would like to see that this great site become a good buddhism site. There is too many forums on buddhism but with a hidden agenda which is greatly disturbing. Thanks and have a nice day. Metta to all Tan KH

Browse Penang's Wat Buppharam website for the latest Dharma events. There were more than one hundred monks, nuns and novice monks from various provinces in Thailand came and stayed in Penang Wat Sungai Puyu and Wat Buppharam. These monks will be residing at Wat Berapit in Bukit Mertajam, Penang for 2-3 days. Brothers and Sisters residing in Bukit Mertajam might want to make a trip there. There will be Breakfast & Lunch Dana(Tamboon) activities as well. Metta, Stan

Here is an interesting explanation extracted from an article by a British Asst Professor, John Walsh who is currently attached to Shinawatra International University in Bangkok.

According to his research, there are four types of magical amulets in Thai culture. The term to describe these amulets as a whole is khawng-khlang, which may be translated as 'sacred, potent objects.' The first type is the khruang-rang, which means
material substances transformed into stone or copper. These amulets will protect people if they are held in the mouth or on the body. They include khot, which are stones found in nature such as stone eggs or meteoric ores and various types of seeds found in jack-fruit and tamarind plants. These amulets are used mostly by poor people, since they depend upon being found
freely rather than having to be bought.

The second type is the phra-khruang, which are small statues or figurines of the Buddha which also protect the person or, if larger, a household. They may be cast from a mould or else be in the form of a votive tablet. These may be used to complete a vow - i.e. to thank the Buddha for a blessing - or else as a talisman carried around the neck.

The third type is the khruang-pluk-sek. Pluk-sek means 'to arouse the potency of a person or object by means of a spell or incantation' so a khruang-pluk-sek is a more powerful form of amulet. Most of the spells used are incantations based on ancient Sanskrit verses - Sanskrit is known as Pali in Thailand. When the spells call for being written down, the Khmer
(Cambodian) alphabet is used rather than Thai which is not considered to be suitable for magic. Khmer characters are believed to have runic qualities. The takrut is a long, hollow cylinder made from metal which has passed through many stages of magical arousal. They are worn around the neck either singly or together with a suitable number of other takrut, perhaps a total of three, five or seven. A salika (mynah bird) is a tiny takrut that can be kept between the teeth and will allow the user to become a very persuasive talker. Just as in Malayan cultures, there are various types of magical item in this class which can bestow various benefits on the user. Many of these items are derived from tantric beliefs and practices.

The fourth type is the wan ya - the use of certain plants and roots to create folk medicines to try to combat disease and the actions of phi -spirits. Many people, especially in rural villages where the level of education is often low, believe that illness and misfortunes of all sorts may be attributed to the actions of malevolent spirits. Fortunately, local shamans are able to combat these spirits with the aid of wan ya, which they can search for in the surrounding forests and mountains.
Every living thing has a spirit and sometimes inanimate objects such as cars may be brought to life through suitable magical spells and then they will be more likely to protect the people who use them.

In my previous submission, I mentioned about experiencing the beauty of Buddhism through meditation, access the above website and read about Venerable Acariya Maha Boowa Nanasampanno. Enjoy... Stan
