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.

Hi Albert, I didn't need any amulet. I bid purely to test the authenticity. It is the real thing from WRK but very recent one (less than 10 years old) and no special occassion. I was prepared to lose S$30 if it turn out fake so bid with eyes open and prep to lose $.

I am not condoning amulet trading but if need to, I suggest going to Bangkok, Banglampoo area near Khaosan, there is a huge amulet trading centre...all very high quality.

I am seeking information on a five piece set of Chinese amulets. Each measures 2 1/4 inches, shape is round except at top there is a pear shaped top with a hole for hanging. The set begins with a carving of one horse with Chinese numbers on the back that apparently denote the number 1. Second one has two horses carved into front, with corresponding number in Chinese on the back, then three, four and five. They are covered in a green patina, and could possibly be brass or very old copper. I don't believe they are coins, since there are holes for hanging at the top. If anyone has info or can guide me to reference material, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi Bros. Pico, Albert and Hoon, you're welcome.

LP Uttama was a very good monk that contributed very much for the well-being of minority groups living in Kanchanaburi. With his passing, noble monks are becoming fewer by the day. May he attain the bliss of nibbana. sadhu.

Dear Jimmy,

For starters, your Lord Brahma statue may also be blessed locally ie in Singapore. Depending on where you stay, I would suggest bringing it to Wat Palelai at Simpang Bedok and leave it there with the resident monk - Phra Kitti. You see, this is the Buddhist Lent period and during this time, every night they chant the Dhammacakka Sutta. This is an impt Sutta which was the 1st sermon Lord Buddha gave after Enlightenment.

2ndly, let me share with you my view on amulet traders. I have never bought or rent anything from any of the amulet shop in Singapore. If it is run by monks, then they are not real monks. The 227 monastic rules stipulate that monks are forbided to indulge in commercial acts. The amulets are consecrated and given out for a reason. They are available for rent cheaply to allow for as many people to be able to own one as possible. The beauty of the Buddha's teaching is universal ie open to all regardless of rich or poor. I was given a Somdej amulet made by LP Tae Komthong (famous for his kuman thongs) Lun Kaow Sip (Batch 90 years old). It was probably one of the last few, if not last batch consecrated by LP Tae as the Reverend passed on at age 91. It is more than 30 years now but his body is still intact and not subject to decay. His temple is at Wat Sarm Ngarn, Nakhon Chaisi. I saw the same amulet being offered at a showcase S$580. You decide for yourself.

Back to your question, I recently went to the internet and bid out of curiousity a Somdej Wat Rakang for $30. I wanted to see how authenticated it is as the picture looks real enough. I had since picked it up and can verify that it is not old and recently consecrated one at Wat Rakang. I don't have any Somdej Soonkor. If you are still interested, you could have the Somdej Wat Rakang at cost and I would throw in the LP Koon rien which I offered to Kakaman (who had shown gracious equanimity - Mudita).

Good luck all....

Hi Bro Anthony,

Thanks for the news on LP Uttama. The passing of another great monk is never good news.

I had the good fortune of meeting him in Singapore about 13 years ago. He came to participate in a amulet consecration ceremony together with many other distinguish monks including LP Pern (who passed away a few years ago) and the present Somdej Buddhachran Abbot of Wat Sarket). LP Uttama joined the rest of the monk for lunch but unlike the rest of the Sangha, he lived accordingly strictly to the Vinaya. LP Uttama sat on the floor and ate directly from his alms bowl after food was offered directly into his bowl and with his hands. He did not fuss nor allow any special treatment even though we knew of his reputation. He as already 84 years old then.


LP Uttama was well known for giving out chanting beads to disciple who requested for it. He handed them out by throwing and looping it directly onto your shoulder. I had benefitted from one such feat and am thankful for it.

Dear Phil, thanks for the kind words on my sites (and the late reply). Yes. I have some interest on Buddhist amulets too. As for the question: The Nikon F6 will be pending as I don't like to create site(s) on model that is existing as the entire product cycle can be hard to address. Thanks.

Dear Ramsey: Thanks for the feedback. I am learning to improve writing skill all the time. There are probbaly 1,600 pages in my folder. No ones want to take over. I have address the weakness and issue in many sections in my site (nothing to hide, pleasing no one..as you simply can't correct this kind of weakness in one day or alternate is to stop developing sites just to make those who are the concerned party comfortable, right ? sorry-lah boss...My English is self taught (serious). And I just could not find anyone who has the FREE TIME to help (Perhaps, may be you can volunteer to patch ?), Two of addressed issue are here:

Update: I have also added a few lines (including Katha by a friend) to the mid-size Buddha Statue section Page Five as well as few other Soomdej images at Soomdej Page 8. Enjoy.

To Hoon2 Hi I understand you reside in Singapore, I was wondering if there are any good, reputable Thai amulets shop you can find in Sg?? I heard from a friend, there is a Thai monk who runs a shop off the Lavender area but I am not too sure of the location.

Anyway I am just developing an interest in these Thai amulets and I was wondering if your offer to help fellow Buddhists source for genuine amulets still stand. I would be glad to reimburse you your costs. Basically I dun really mind if the amulet is new, as long as it is genuine. I dun mind getting any amulet from the set of benjaparkee, but am particularly drawn to Phra Somdej and Phra Zoomgor.

I am hoping to make a trip to a Bangkok temple in February, can i bring my phra phrom brahma to be blessed by the monks there??

Thanks and I must say this is a great site, I am more into Zen buddhism and I have certainly been missing the rich spiritual buddhist tradition found in our close neighbour Thailand. I certainly hope to learn more.
