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.

Hello to moderator, I am wondering in you could solve my another curiousity. But please do. I am wearing a Phra Kring for few years already which was given by my friend who is a feng shui master.

After I make comparison to the Phra Kring in the market and even on the web, I can't find anything like mine. The reason is all of the Kring that I've seen are holding the bottle vertically in left hand. As for mine, the bottle is held horizontally in the left hand. Why is this or this is some sort of "trademark" from some Wat. Please, help me with the question which i really wish to know for many years. (I havent seen my feng shui friend for many years already)

To anyone of you here.

It's a silly question to ask but still, Im giving a try.
What does Phra Pitta act as? I saw some of my friends wearing Phra Pitta but when I ask them what's the purpose, i get different answer. Could anyone here help me to solve this curiousity? Please....Thank you in advance.

I hoping to make a trip to kelantan in the near future. Other then visiting Wat Uttamaram paying respect to Tok raja, finding Achan kuan, what other temple worth to visit and what other top monk still around. Any bro here have driver contact in kota baru that provide day trip to travel all the temple. If hire a taxi what the cost going to be like?

Mr. Jess Wolcott: Melaka (Malacca) is an old town located 400km + from Penang. Too tiring to go from South to North. May be by air (via KL) is more feasible. Sueestion you to download a Malaysian Map as guide.

Next: I agree with Brother Anthony as this approach makes plenty of good sense in such a possible trade.

Wat Suthat got new and old one, got expensive and got affordable one. If you are new, I suggest you start with a newly made piece that is not so expensive (pricewise depends on the trader and how u bargain). Old wat suthat krings are not easy to collect as there are many fakes. But if your intention is just to wear, then I suggest you can go to any thai temple and ask for one piece to wear. No need great and expensive one unless u are a season collector. Just my thoughts.

IS a Kring amulet worths a lot ? A friend's amulet outlet is asking for RM3,000-00. How to verify the one he is trying to sell genuine ? The one he offers me is from WAT SUTAT, Bangkok.

Oh.. by the way, wikipedia has no one addressing Thai Amulets. Talked to leo before, but he declined. Who has the spare time for that ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thai_amulets

wikipedia provides some basic explanations, read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relics I guess one of the most important thing for Existence of Buddha Relics is the strong belief that has greatly help spreading Buddhism across Asia during the last few thousand years because generally, placement of relic was usually in a Stupa (Chedi) - and most often, placement area forms as a nucleus for the entire temple to be based. Although not every temple has a Buddha Relic in place inside the main Stupa (some carries hair or tooth etc. or even ashes/remains of a well respected Guru Monk). Yes. All these has created a strong bond in getting Buddhist from all over the world together sharing a common belief that enlightenment exists. Sorry, I don't have one (but equally love to own, even a piece to worship). Metta.

Addon: So, when an amulet trader is trying convinced you that his amulet even has a Relic inside, and sell you for ONLY RM150-00, just exercise your wisdom, okay ?
