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.

Haha .. that is a good one (and nice topic). Welcome to our mini community, Mr Sadao (along with few other brothers from Kuching). I see what you mean by "code of conduct (no sxx ??)". We know it is a respect not to bring an amulets to the bed. So, I guess you are referring similarly we should not bring Buddhist symbol(s), right ? That can raise a debate between two camps of followers-lah. But you are brave enough to bring this up.

One theory is, tattoo culture is fashion. Historically, tribal tattooing and those Japanese gals (or even those sexxxxy Japanese & the local Maxxia) are the early modern front runners for this culture. Tattooing Buddhist sxripts are probably Thai pioneered. I don't say it is a conspicuous like all those Pxnky rockers in the west. But tourism in Thai with the west does has its part in creating the popularity. Although Christian claimed it was part in promoting Christinity during the early centuries, but according to some journals, " .. most followers of Abrahamic religions - like Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—feel that their religious doctrine proscribes or constrains tattoos among followers ...or has other religious significances...".

At 40, I am opened but I am not following this approach (as it is kind of weid for an middle age guy like me with some tatto symbols on my body, ahaha). Some Guru (or intreprets as just some monks with a modern sense) also had Tattoos (one example is the Kruba Krissana, King of Butterflies had on his shoulder). But I am not against this, and I am just don't know the significant of tattooing whe n relates to Buddhism. But assuming if it is religiously relate, most people would need to be self disciplined and pratice strict code of conduct (no sxx ??) huh ?

That is funny enough for you to think more from here and highly debatable I should say. But a friend (shop owner who offers services) argues those are just Thai religious symbols that can fence off evil spirit and provide protection. Peace-lah, it is just a thought.

Good to see some kaki-brothers from Kuching emerges. I have a friend whose father was also from Sarawak. I know he must be a kaki as well because he (son) is wearing so many of them (recently Tattoo few parts of hs body). I notice many people (esp. the young ones) are tattooing their body parts with scripts. I have been wondering if it works this way ? no offence. Just ask for opinion only.

Bro Albert: Generally most of the krings what you see to-day are more or less of the same form and style with exception that some Thai temples do create some India-influenced krings but only in rare occsssions. I've browsed thru some Thai amulets megazines,and what has drawn much to my attention is that a lot of old krings were created in many different forms in terms of their looks, posture and overall presentation. Some krings were seen with holding flower stalks,and some with small pagodas, some with big urns,some also with plaque....s ome were not holding anything at all. Most of these krings were mostly made before BE2500s with most of them between BE2430s-BE2480s. Well, just sharing info from my slightest knowledge about amulets, afterall I am no expert in Thai amulets. Hope it can be useful to you!

Brother Albert, haha .. actually I am working in Tawau (6 years here already). Will get you out to have a drink when I am back to home town (few times a year). Actually I spect more time in other countries than going back to Kuching. But it is nice to have a web buddy here who shares similar interest.

Cheers.

Heah, Maybe you are right on my Phra Kring. After I look through the magnifying glass, it doesnt seem like my Kring is holding a bottle. Iz more like a sea shell. Do you know which WAT would produce this sort of Kring? Maybe i should send u a pic if i have the time to do so. Right now i m planning to send my Phra Kring for new casing as the old one cracks already after wearing for so many years. Thanks anyway brother Heah, at least i know my kring is holding a shell, not bottle.

To Nelson Tan, Thanks for the information. Maybe we can interact in some way because I'm from Kuching as well. Well, Kuching do have a few amulet shops which you can pay a visit. What i know are the CentrePoint, Past and Future in MJC, and a candle shop in Sekama, and of course the WAT in Stephen Yong Road, Batu Kawa. Of course, there is another in Foochow Road. Simpang Tiga Shophouse got one as well, and there's gurus visiting from time to time. Email me so as to keep contact. I m newbies as well. Cheers.

Albert: If I am not mistaken,your Kring may have held a sea shell in his left hand horizontally inclined.The sea shell may be too small or not detailed enough and as a result you could have mistaken it as bottle.In Buddhism sea shell is a sacre object.I do have Kring holding sea shell in his hand.In Mahayana Buddhism,the Medicine Buddha is actually holding a small pagoda in his left hand.

I am new into this forum but I like what I came across all in this lovely Amulets website. I am from Kuching city, East Malaysia. I have keen interest in this for more than 15 years. Heard too many, learnt too little. Hopefully I can sahre as well as learn something from other Gurus collectors here (I can speak or write a little in Chinese). Thank You.

Phra Kring in that formation is a typical classic design. But even Wat Suthat has older Krings that doesn't hold anything (just two hands overlapping upwards in meditation style) and another older version from the temple is two hands holding the bottle. Yes. It is a little unusual. I have even seen a version by Wat Caho Khun Sri of the Phra Caiwat in trinagular shape. The best way is to use yahoo photo and show others (lovely if this forum porvides such a provision but I can imagine it is messy to do so). Cheers.
