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.

As this site is specifically created for this purpose - so, please don't mail me other than constructive suggestions or rectifying mistakes found in this site, thanking you. Since this is a non-profitable resource site - The developer of this site reserves the rights to censor or delete any inappropriate, unrelated, misleading or excessively hostile messages posted herein. 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 Leo, You are absolutely right. In fact, you should have told me earlier about Mr Ho. haha.... well, i bought 2 amulets of Somdej WRK from him. Confirmed with him already this evening. Thanks again Leo, without the recommendation, I think i will still buying amulet from others auction site with high risk of getting the genuine piece. I cant tell the authenticity of the amulet myself, i just depend on the seller's info. Still "green" of me huh.

Mr. Foo, that is a good WRK (the "bat" is shui..)! after 20-30 years wearing, it will turned this way like Raymond's amulet (http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/leofoo/Thai-amulets/RockRaymond/images/RRaySoomejSlanFrontBig.jpg) I was told by a Thai collector friend that since 15 years or so ago, all WRK has a marked dot (sometimes at the front and back) to verify the batches on their respective year of produce. Hehe.. may be I should also call-lah (for my salesman who always kacau2 me for one). Thanks for the lead.

Dear Leo, Thanks. I contacted him already and yes, he is a nice and warm-hearted person. The conversation is a very knowledgable one for me. Hehe... Don't get wrong, i m not saying you r buying a fake amulet. I m jes trying to say that since i don't know how to verify the amulet, i just trust whatever people say. and you mentioned that you rented amulet from mr ho, so i will just count on mr ho to sell me good amulet and not fake one. :) haha.. (not good in explaining) Anyway. "KAM SIA" leo.


A Note added KAKAMAN: IF those Thai want to cheat him, it is not impossible but susah...that is all. next, his collection of Buddha statues in his room worths a look but probably I am the only one he doesn't mind who can get access inside freely to mine the hidden corners (During my recent trip, I found a small, silvery but high quality LP Thuad from Wat Prakoh where he kept for more than 20 years, a perfect gift for a new born of my good friend). He has three Thai Sifu (One was the late Achan from Wat Prakoh who stayed at is house when came down to Ipoh). Don't worry, he won't cheat people for RM100-00+ but at such a modest price, some of those WRK are worthy pieces for gift or private use, That is all. In fact, I have given one to Uncle Lim at PUDU plaza previously, he and his friends kept asking me to acquire on behalf for more after seeing it, but I refused because I think they should be for private distribution.

MY PRIORITY Set is for those of you who may not own an amulet YET (or intend to get one for your loved ones and/or close relative(s), you can call freely to ask (don't mail or post to ask me) all I know is may be less than 10 pieces left. I am not promoting for him and his services but as long as you have some basis to differentiate a good WRK, although they are not old, but they are good images. All of you here who comes to this site with a common objective to share resources among us (if not why are you here in the first place, right ?). If I can locate something good and worths a FAIR price asked for, I will just post and share rather than expecting some of you to be so adventurous to try on some online stores by means of showcased picture(s) via a computer screen. There is no basis for me to hurt anyone. Otherwise, I might as well keep quiet on it next time (Albert, no offence but I thought I need to address this issue and let all of you to understand my stand at times, probably this episode has made me learnt something this time, haha.. betul tak ?).

Leo, Thanks for the recommendation. I saw that pic before and it is very nice. But i cant tell the authencity of it because i don't know how to verify.haha..

I think i will try to sms mr ho for enquiries. And i will tell that i was refered by Leonard..you don't mind?

Kakaman: I have tipped off you all how-to, right ? Authencity ? That is funny. You think I will buy faked as gifts for my friends huh ? haha .. Just pick up your phone and call/ask. He is a good friend of mine and whenever I go to Ipoh, I will usually pay him a visit. As he always being approached by temples in Thailand to dispose amulets on behalf to Malaysian. So, he often got headache (don't worry, he doesn't cheat people as he is not an amulet trader (esp. from my lead) where he operates in his house offering some "getting rid of ritual problem and feng shui" services but just simply wants to get rid of the thousand of them (no joke ! a room just for storage) because most often, the temples want him to pay first). He called Err... "Dai Lou Foo"..as he called me that way.

By the way, he is the only Chinese I know in Malaysia who can write both Nushu and Sanskrit scripts for ritual purpose. Learnt form a 3 years stay at Bodh Gaya.

Greetings all. I'd just been given a triangle pidta amulet (sits on a lotus), which is about only 1 inch in length and earth based. It's actually triangular. The 'keng' at the back is not conventional. No Thai letters at all stating temple or date or the maker's name etc. Looks a bit aged.

Would appreciate some advice. Thank you.

An alternate Suggestion:- For those of you who wishes to acquire a good WRK amulet, examine this (not an aged image but good and genuine):

You can try calling my friend Mr.Ho. he still has a few (less than 10 pieces) of these WRK images (he filtered out with one of the commitees member of WRK from the batch of around 2,000 pieces in this special edition few years ago). I am not sure not sure how much he will be asking for now, but I got them for some personal friends at RM120-00 a piece without casing. His contact is via

Yes. You may mention my name.

Jimmy, Are you interested in Bro Hoon's offer of letting his Phra Somdej from WRK? Well, i m thinking to rent from Bro Hoon if you not taking that offer since our Bro Hoon is just bidding to test the authencity of the auction amulet.

Bro Hoon, If your offer still stand and Jimmy's not showing sign of interest, I might want to rent it from you if you would like to let it go. As long as it is authentic,i dun mind it's new or old. I will rent you at cost and also include some postage for register mail to Sarawak. Is it ok, Bro Hoon? I would like to give this amulet to my sis's bf who is working in KL alone now. I m sure the amulet will do some help in his career and protection. Terima Kaseh
Buddha Bless us all.
