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.

Jatukarm or Jathukam : this is a ery interesting read posted by Bangkok Post relating to the Jatukarm Ramathep craze right now happening in Thailand, as a site quotes it as "..breaking all sales records in the entire history of Buddhist amulets...". and it also says "... 35-year-old monk of Nakhon Si Thammarat who gained over 150 million baht in February from selling Jatukarm amulets has been an inspiration for many abbots and investors to launch several classes of this amulet. As a result, hundreds of temples in the South are now dedicatedly commercialising on this talisman. The cult has already spread to Chiang Mai and other provinces...." :-
Another English site is here (Highly readable with better information on the amulet form):-
And now there are a few specific sites on Jatukarm Ramathep amulets (in Thai):-
+ many others (simply use the key word search "Jatukarm".
I am NOT a big fan of this NOR trying to promote this image form here but rather, just let some of the brothers here to understand of its background & judge it via personal justification of its collectible value with your own wisdom, that is all.684. From : LORENCE (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Hi.. first time visitor to this lovely site. I like it because it is very friendly. I guess 95% of us don't own superlative or out of this world collectible pieces of the amulets and providing this forum is very useful for general discussion. I have mailed some online gurus but no one seemed bother to reply my questions at all. Anyway, I have three pieces of a Soomdej, Chinraraj and a LP Negrn. NOt particularly very old but I have been using them for the last 10 years or so. After reading the srticles, I have began getting hooked to Pongsuphan now. May be next trip I can try to locate one in Bangkok. I am still not very confident on onlines trades yet. haha///

I don't check the message board often but when I did, I read the posts regarding LP Daeng's amulets. This immediately reminds me of something I read a few months ago at another site.
I have to admit I didn't feel comfortable when this site's pictures were seen at thai-amulets.com. But well, if one is a genuinely Buddhist, one knows that stealing is a big violation against what Buddha taught. It is ironic that such violation is found among a Buddhist amulet seller.
Sad, but true. Let karma take its course.687. From : mgbada aba (email@example.com,)

for Y.K.T.: hello, yes i am from The Czech Republic. I have spend a lot of time in Thailand for the past 4 years :))
After i'll finish LP Daeng section i would like to add LP Doo and LP Song (Chumphon) as well - if i have powers :))
I would also like to appeal a bit on the webmaster(Kakaman?) to remove my comment about http://www.thai-amulets.com/ - the guy who runs the site have appologised and removed both items from his shop( http://www.thai-amulets.com/amulet_listing.php?monk=LP%20Daeng ). He told me he was fooled by someone else. I don't wanna harm him really although his note about the GUARANTEE made me upset and made me write letters and comments. thank you, Jan
NOTE by Co-Moderator:- Update, to maintain good will and brotherhood, I have removed the comment by Jan.

Personally, I find Ian's site on the Guru (Luong Phor Daeng) is far better in content building as well as in its accuracy (good job !):

I read the original sales " Somdej 1st Batch Grey..LP Daeng Wat Khao Bandai-It: Made BE 2513 PRICE: 63.00 GBP=425.339 MYR United Kingdom Pounds / Malaysia Ringgits http://www.thai-amulets.com/amulet_details1.php?id=217&page=1&lower=0
Details: These splendid amulets were created in a number of different colours including red, white and yellow. This particular amulet is the grey variety and is in fair condition. The amulet was made specifically for the devotees of Luang Phor Daeng that assisted in the restoration and re-construction of the temple. The amulets were blessed in excess of 300 temples from B.E. 2507 until B.E 2511. The amulets were then blessed for a further three years by Luang Phor Daeng. As such this particular batch of Somdej amulets are commonly known as the '2513 Batch'
The amulets were then taken to Wat Dhepsirin where they were blessed a further two times by Dhan Chao Khun Nor on April 25 BE 2513 and December 5th B.E 2513. Prior to the distribution on October 14th B.E 2514 the amulets were also blessed at Wat Yai ( Chinnaraj), Wat Nangphya, Wat Sothorn and Wat Doi Mae Pang (LP Waen).. Properties: For almost 40 years this amulet has been proven time and time again to be one of the most efficacous amulets of the modern era, providing the wearer with Klaew Klaad (free from all harm) and Kong KraphanChatri (invincibility). Notes: Do not confuse this amulet with the later 2nd batch amulets which are very slightly different in appearance. This is GUARANTEED to be a genuine 1st batch Somdej amulet by Luang Phor Daeng"...."
Thai-Amulet site on LP Daeng:
it says " ...LP Daeng's formal monkhood name is " PhraKru Yanwilas" but people popularly call him " Luang Phor Daeng". LP Daeng ordained in the monkhood in B.E.2441 and was a close disciple of LP Plian, the then Abbot of Wat Kao Ban Dai-it. After LP Plian passed away in B.E.2461, LP Daeng was learning Dhamma and magical khowledge with LP Chui of Wat Kongkaram, the greatest Guru of PetchBuri province. In WWII, LP Daeng created and presented his PhaYants (magic clothes) and Takruts to Soldiers and people. When the Japanese troops landed in PraChuabKiriKhan Province which borders with Petchburi, a small group of soldiers and patriotic people fought fearlessly. They were brave and it was said remained unharmed due to LP Daeng's amulets. LP Daeng's 1st batch medals, Takruts and other amulets worn by soldiers declared their great efficacy, particularly for safty and protection from danger. LP Daeng passed away in B.E.2517 at the age of 96 with 75 years of his monkhood...." - Thai amulet.com -
So, the said piece was made barely a few years before the Guru was passed away (B.E. 2513/2517). And if it is a genuine 1st batch Soomdej piece for MYR400+ - it challenges conventional wisdom or simply the Guru want someone to own his piece at a bargain. Further a number of names of "Big Icons" for collectible Buddhist amulets were mentioned. I have tried to link the image, funny part is, it says: "Copyright Thai-amulets.com - please DON'T copy our content....", That is quite funny after K.T post was made.
Hope this can raise a discussion and we learn something or the intelegence from everywhere. At WORST - What we may be discussing here could inspire amulets online traders to be more careful when dealing with description of products they are selling as we do read. It is a win win situation between consumers/collectors and the retailer.
