The whole problem with me is, I am not very good at writing, neither I am very knowledgeable with all the many Buddhist votive tablets. Besides, it takes a great deal of effort try to understand the rich and colourful history in the development of Buddhism in and around the Asian region, the local custom, culture, icons, temples and even with geographical locations of various countries (such as Thailand, Burma, Sri-Lanka, Tibet/China, Laos, Cambodia, Singapore and even Malaysia etc.).
An objective of this section is to post/host some interesting finds and at the same time, mirror/archive/back-up whatever good content that are/have been published elsewhere (with permission). So, please don't misunderstood my good intention by thinking I am duplicating similar resources. Whatever it is, I have great respect for whoever that has created Buddhism resources - regardless they are from which school or region. For an example, Sri-Lanka (formerly Ceylon) is one of the country that practices Buddhism but as a fellow Buddhist - I have little knowledge on this related topic from that Kingdom. Naturally, for all current Thai-amulet collectors, the popular form may be the easiest, so use here to discuss and share common issues over here. It can be anything - from place of interest to personalities etc. Indirectly, LET US UNDERSTAND BETTER in the DEVELOPMENT OF BUDDHISM IN YOUR COUNTRY with the additional benefit of promoting tourism in your location (preferably, please keep the commercial content out) - So, if you are knowledgeable, reasonably good at writing - just send me (or any of the Co-Maintainers) articles that can help to promote this very unique oriental religion with the many others globally who still have not... Thus, the very next time when you travel again, take sometime to prepare a photo-journal as well. Thank you.

Public Knowledge Based Forum: Any comments, questions, suggestions, report of a problem encountering in the site OR wish to share a thought, expressing a personal desire to acquire or disposal any particular Buddhist image ? Please make good use of the

Message Board / Guestbook link
section which may serve more specifically with your objective.

NOTE:- Virtually ALL the images appear in this site have two dimensions in their respective display. I think most seasoned Thai amulet lovers probably possess a pair of hawk eyes second to the Jews in the diamond trades, so, it is the intention to provide a LARGER view of each thumbnail in order for everyone to enjoy, authenticate or verify their originality. The technique to fully explore the convenience of this display system is - even when the larger view appears on the browser, you should use your mouse to click again to see the actual explosive view. Please bear with the slower download time of those explosive views. Enjoy.
