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.

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.

Uncle Leo，You are a good man that will forgive people. This is what we should be in a way so as to keep this world a peaceful place to live in. But one thing uncle, I have been learning to be patient, endurance with people. U know, somehow, i just got "bullied" back. As i m in sales line, if i tok too gentle and too polite with some customers, they tend to "climb on to your head" that type. Well, so far so good, i havent lost temper to my customers yet. :) Uncle, i will follow your priciple of not to be too calculative. Thanks for the reminder in a way that awake me. *SALUTE*912.

Site Progress Update 16.10.2006: Some Soomdej new images at http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/leofoo/Thai-amulets/Wichien/Soomdej/index7.htm and my office Buddha image(s) to share
various explosive views are quite graphic intensive. Just let some of you help to determine if I have made mistakes somewhere in the decision.. but looks like it, unlikely.
P.S. Errr ..Albert. I don't have the habit to complain to others. If you just throw a dime out and someone picks it up and gets happy just for that, fine with me. Minus this, the world is still a very nice place to live with, isn't it ?913. From : Albert (Sarawak) (email@example.com)

No problem Brother Hoon. As i said, i understand. I will just wear it. I know i will get the verification one day. It's ok bro, thanks for the offer for getting me pitda. I feel 'pai seh' also asking you to do the job for me. It's really ok, thanks a million for the offer. In the case I really cant find or desperate to have one, I might seek for your expertise and help. Hehe...
Aiseh, uncle, you are very and really observative. Uncle Leo, what do you think? Your pictures are being pirated. Iz a bad habit. It remind me of my uni year where "PLAGIARISM IS A SERIOUS OFFENCE" .
Yea, Bro Purt is www.thailandamulets.com . Different from Thai Amulet. bUT Bro Purt's pics mostly taken by himself, not copied or borrowed from somewhere else.914. From : hoon2 (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Brothers and sisters in the Dhamma,
This is a good site for good academic discourse on the Buddha Dhamma by Phra Bodhi. I met him once when he stayed in a temple in Singapore but only realised his intellectual command of the Buddha's teachings. I came across Phra Bodhi's lecture to the United Nations on Buddhism. UPDATE: the suggestive link is also placed at the LINK section now. Thanks.915. From : Uncle Wong (nomail@noSPAM.com)

LEO, I have sent a test mail toone of the guy, but bounced. Just found out via their email that SIAM-amulet.com is also THAI-AMULETS.com lah (headed by a Mak Salleh named Chris Jones and some Thai folks at http://www.thai-amulets.com/about_us.htm which shown the curi brother Paul Lim's Khun Paen and LP Negrn).
Note: Purt is ThailandAmulets.com NOT the same site but Brother Purt ada more class (ethic) haha ..(discount later, okay ?) . No lah ... folks, this is a good local site, right ? Although in most cases, I dont really bother, but using other's posssesion on an amulet SALE site is bad. Note: bolih masuk and edit/publish what I post immediately now (wah, it is an honor, but NICE!), hehe..916. From : Kakaman (email@example.com)

Dear Chris:- That is a good suggestion. I will put it under the link later for our future references. UPDATE: It is published now.
Dear Uncle, thanks for the lead(s), don't know what should do with them don't quite like to be associated with a sales oriented commercial website + as if I have sold mine to them. Besides, friends who have granted me to shoot their collection may thought I have granted the said site permission to do so without notifying them respectively in advance. note:- You can now also access the board admin. For others who also like to help co-maintaining the forum, let me know. -leofoo- adds the dormain name behind is my contact.
Lastly, I think "Benchaphakhi" should be the correct word/spelling to use as officially in 1995, Thailand Post has officially published a series of commemorative stamp set for this issue. But many sites are using "Benjapakee" to refer to the top five Thai original amulet forms of Soomdej, Soomkor, Nang Phrya, Pongsuphan and Phra Rod, I think both should be accepted （分别只是官方用语及平民化术语的各之拼音法而已）but it will yield two different kind of results on a typical web search (Personally, I will use the official pronounciation/spelling from now on). When I have the time, I will featured that later in this site as I have the set.917. From : Anthony Koh (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Hi Albert, I am not quite an expert on authentification but can tell real of fake ones in some of the more common amulets. However, the older and harder to find amulets are difficult to tell. Being in Singapore I go to Bangkok several times a year. Let me know what you need or desire and I try to get the amulets from the source, usually the temples itself for you.
For Phra Pid Ta, Tok Raja is very good and hard to get but in recent times ie in the last 20 years of so, Luang Phu Tok of Wat Paduchimpee is very popular too. I know of 2 batch "Lun Jumbo" and "Lun Poknee". Jumbo is as the name say, big size Phra Pidta and Pok Nee is smaller and dark in colour. You can see many shops and household honouring LP tok's picture with King Bhumibol holding him. I have an original Phra Pidta Lun Poknee given to me by a friend many years back. He stayed near Wat Paduchimpee and gave me the Pidta still in original casing. He told me that Pok Nee in Thai means for Phra Pidta Maha Lap ie Phra Pidta to help source fortune to help you settle all your debts. LP Tok is also famous for his Phra Somdej Chun Doo Hwan. It is so named because when the Korean Prime Minister was saved from an assassination attempt on him in Yangon because he had the Somdej from LP Tok given to him by Princess Sririndorn when he visited Bkk. Chun was uncomfortable leaving his hotel room and arrive late only to live. Chun is now a monk in South Korea.
LP Tok is held in very high regard by the royal family.920. From : Y.K.T.
