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.

What to do with broken or damage Thai amulets. And when a amulet is broken, what is the meaning to it?

Dear moderatos, I'm sorry if I've written in the wrong theme. Please, don't delete my post and move it in the proper section.

Day after day, minute after minute people keep feeing negative emotions ("NEs"): jealousy, pity, fear, anger, irritation, discontent, resentment, rage, perplexity, insult, malice, envy, anxiety, uneasiness, contempt, disgust, shame, revengefulness, apathy, indolence, grief, melancholy, disappointment, greed etc.

Is freedom from NEs possible? People are stuck in them so hopelessly that even the very idea of having freedom from NEs irritates them. When they imagine themselves without NEs, it perplexes them to think how it is possible to live without them. They believe that without NEs they would turn into a dead unfeeling thing. They are so addicted to NEs that they cannot even imagine something besides them, although many people had short outbursts of weak EPs, especially in the early childhood.

This is a citation. I suggest reading about it ( http://bodhi.ru/samadhi/for/eng/01001-eng.htm ) and express your opinion. If you don't speak English then choose your language here - http://bodhi.ru/ . On this page there's email where you can send your questions and wishes. - Ambitiousss

Talismans draw huge crowd to cremation NUCHAREE RAKRUN KULTIDA SAMABUDDHI

Nakhon Si Thammarat _ Tens of thousands of people from across the country flocked to the cremation of Pol Maj-Gen Khun Phantharak Rajadej here yesterday, most hoping to obtain one of the famous Jatukarm-Ramathep talismans distributed to mourners. His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn and HRH Princess Srirasm presided over the cremation at Wat Phramahathat Woramahawiharn temple in Muang district. The temple ground was turned into a market as talisman traders set up stalls to sell amulets, particularly Jatukarm-Ramathep talismans bearing the image of the late Pol Maj-Gen Phantharak. The talisman is made of a clay-like material in red, white and black. These amulets, especially those made in remembrance of important figures, are popular with collectors.

More than 20 million baht was said to have been pumped into the Nakhon Si Thammarat economy during the funeral, mainly from amulet trading and hotel bookings. All hotels were fully occupied by funeral goers from other provinces. Pol Maj-Gen Khun Phantharak, believed to be the last commoner holding the noble title of Khun, was recognised for his outstanding efforts in crime suppression in many regions during his service. He died of natural causes in the southern province last July when he was 103. The late policeman was famous for his expertise in incantations and was a disciple of Jatukarm-Ramathep, believed by worshippers to be the guardians of Nakhon Si Thammarat city.

Sociologist Narong Boonsuayfan, of Nakhon Si Thammarat-based Walailak University, said he believed most of the people attending the cremation were more interested in the talismans than in the bravery and good deeds of the late policeman. ''The Jatukarm-Ramathep phenomenon is a reflection of Thai people's obsession with money. They went to the cremation to get the talisman and then make money from it,'' he said. Arkhom Dechtongkum, of Nakhon Si Thammarat Rajabhat University's faculty of humanity and social sciences, said the frenzy over the talisman reflected the ''mental insecurity'' of many Buddhists. 'It is obvious that these people need something for their minds to hold on to,'' he said.

The monarchy was the only institution Thai people put their faith in at the moment as other institutions, including the monkhood and teachers, had been tarnished by the bad behaviour of some of their members. 'That's why people turn to these talismans, as a means to link them with good spirits,'' he said.

Co-Moderator: This teaches us not to be too crazy over amulets. After all, the only people that benefit in the end are the traders themselves.
