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.

Richard, in KL may be you should try to talk to Miss May, she is very Buddhist in nature. She offers basic amulets framing services as well: Try to locate the contact at:

http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/leofoo/Thai-amulets/amulet-cases/index.htm

I will try to talk to her when I am free to keep some books there for KL enthusiasts (may be 10-15 volume for a start), consignment basis, if can't get rid of them, tell her I will sponsor (just in case) any unsold copies.

Hi Ken Chua,

The Phra amulet picutre that you have is the Leela Medkhanoon and is a member of the Benjapakkhi group. The original Leela is an antique about 500 years old found in the Kampaneg petch area (northern Thailand). Info about the Benja group of amulets ie 5 GRand Holy Amulets can be found on the internet. There should be a lot of it.

The amulet is also known as "Thung Settee" in Thai mean bring lots of wealth. Some of the Monks that I ahve associated with in the past told me that Thung Settee also bring charisma - smoothen the way in your work.

Personally, believe in the power of the Buddha-Dharma, things will work out well for you. Good luck.

Dear KT, i tink you are quite right there. I oso find that my amulet looks very much like Phra Leela. The only different is the right hand is up to his chest and his head is surrounded by a circle + he is standing on a Lotus. Most od Phra Leela right hand is down and there are no circle surrounding his head. Thank you KT for the info, and I hope more bro/sis frm this community will help to verify. Thank you very much

Richard, you should ask around if any local amulet shops (KL, Singapore, Penang etc.) if anyone is interested to act as a distribution agent for your Guru's work. Don't get in too many, 10-15 books each location for a start. What do you think ? Or amy be ask leo to create a single page as introduction in your collection page (good idea, actually...).

It looks like a Phra Leela to me. You may find some similar images at leo's pages like:

http://www.mir.com.my/leofoo/Thai-amulets/Wat_INtharavihan/indexLPP.htm it is a popular image form, most are made of clay (red or brown), teak / rose wood. I have seen some are made in metal now. Strange , northern Thai folks called / pronnounced an image form with a similar posture as "Kum Phang/Paeng". I am not sure if there are differences from those produced by the various Wat and respectful Guru Monks from the central and southern region.
