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 would like to share the extract from Jotipalo Bhikkhu's write up in March 18, 2005 under the title " A generous gift; safe from harm "..... I also got an email from my aunt and uncle telling the good news that one of my cousins who had been in Iraq just returned safely from his tour of duty. I had given him an amulet that was specially blessed by Ajahn Jumnian. These amulets protect whoever wears them from being killed by violent means. Later I sent my cousin a bag of fifty-two amulets which Ajahn Jumnian again blessed, and when I saw my cousin on his brief visit to the States at Thanksgiving, he told me that nobody who wore one of these amulets had been injured! Metta, Stan

A small site update: I have scanned the Link section a while ago and deleted quite a few in-active links that is not working. However, I have patched Bronsse's old site address back to the new holybuddha.com; added Purt's Thailand amulet as well as our new Czech friend on the webboard, Jan Horinek's site on LP Kasem.

Next, is there a volunteer to take over as the Editor for the Link Section ? Thanks.

Hello everyone,
Bro.KH. Thanks for sharing.
Bro. Jan. Great website on LP Kasem, he is one of the most revered LP in Thailand. I admired LP Kasem for his unique efforts in creating amulets with Vajrayana, Mahayana and Theravada characteristics. In a way, he was trying to convey to all buddhists in the world that there is no such thing as Theravada or Mahayana or Vajrayana Buddhist, we are all Buddhist under our great teacher and master, Sakyamuni Gautama Buddha.
LP Kasem's Phra Kring resemblence the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin or in sanskrit language, Bodhisatva Alvalokistevara as well as Amitabha Buddha, the Western Pure Land. As lay buddhist, we are guided by the basic Sigalovada Sutta, the discourse for Lay Buddhists. LP Kasem has been well known for his amulets where Bro. Jan did highlight in his website. Alternatively, there are a small number of good websites on LP Kasem:
1. http://tanabudee.tripod.com/kasembio.html
2. http://www.thaiamulets.net/index2
Please add on to my list if you have more website linkages to LP Kasem.
Samadhi is a Pali language meaning concentration or in simple term, meditation, as what Bro. Purt described earlier.
As Buddhist, there are couple of things that we need to understand and the reasons why we are adopting such practices.
1) Dana, practising charity and how such action would make us a happy and humble person, we must have the heart, and with that, we develop Metta or loving kindness
2) Sila or morality, the minimum, we need to observe the basic five precepts
a) no killing
b) no stealing
c) no sexual misconduct
d) no false speech
e) no intoxicant drinks
3) Bhavana or meditation, every Buddhist must learn how to meditate because the beauty of Buddhism is not just to avoid evil and do good but to purifying the mind and we can achieve that through meditation.
Meditation requires good concentration(samadhi) and as for any meditators, we are aware that concentration need to be developed (not something fall from the sky) and that lead us to the adoption of buddhist meditation techniques known as Samatha and Vippassana.
Frankly, a lot of hardwork required if you really want to experience the beauty our Lord Buddha has taught us.
I believe the next question from the floor would be, why wearing buddhist amulets?
Buddhist amulets blessed by great monks possessed great power. This great power acts as a temporary relief to the wearer who needs to overcome certain obstacles or smooth sailing or to achieve a certain success in his/her life. The list go on and on.
Moreover, some of us tend to attach to the amulets so deeply and worse still, we started to crave for more and more powerful amulets and willing to pay no matter what the price is (for those who can afford).
Sounds familiar? we have ended up turning the blessed amulets to become a trading commodity since there are a willing buyer and a willing seller for these precious buddhist amulets.
The question is, are we doing the right thing in the name of our Lord Buddha? or is not relevant? or it depends on certain circumstances? for example, one of our Thai brothers who are willing to forgo his amulets in order to help him to rebuild his damaged home due to disaster. What do you think?
The purpose I am throwing this question to the floor is to help us to gather the opinions of all our brothers and sisters out there in order to clear any wrong views we might have as ultimately, we are all Buddhists and the Buddha's way is our way.
Metta, Stan

Dear K.T. Sorry, it cannot be the 3rd batch (as older mold cannot be that perfect as the 4th gen. onwards). Anyway, I am not sure do all the 4th batch onwards have different scripts behind. As far as I know (among the 4th batch) one has "Phor" behind; others form of the 4th are Nur Sangkaya, Phim Nar-kae; Phim Nar Rang, Phim Nar Noom, Phim blog tag or may have other features in differentiating them (something I can remember - learnt from wichien). Actually, from 4th batch onwards, the base formation of the lotus began have two layers (some cannot be distinguish clearly but most well preseved one could show). The 5th batch can be considered as a variation in its overall form but the sixth came back to conventional but colour is generally a little bit "dull" and grayish. The 4th batch is not as consistence in the colours (some are gray, yellowish gray, pinkish gray and brownish grey). I am still in China, will be back in a day or two more. Sorry, although I have 4 of these (one is triangular) but all of them have given away to my partners, my sister in law and I have only one left (not for sale, haha). my knowledge is quite limited, please don't ask me anymore, tolong tolong... For other Gurus ont he web, please lend hand when encounters questions such as this nature for me. Thanks.

By the way, wherever you are - may I take this opputunity to wish everyone HAPPY NEW YEAR and May all of you enjoy and cruising through a truly PROSPEROUS 2006 !

Jan: I don't have one WPN. I think it is a third batch series (may be Purt can lend a hand into verification). Another link I found is http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/leofoo/Thai-amulets/Wichien/indexPALda.htm I think kakaman (leo) is in China now (I mailed him last week).
