Thai Amulets – An Overview

A two-headed baby ‘zombie’ is the most terrifying thing you can buy in Bangkok’s riverside Buddhist amulet market, but if you promise to feed it every day, the undead spirit could become your loyal slave and protect you against misfortune.
Several magazines published in Thailand are devoted to news about amulets.
“In Thailand, the lowest level of believers buy these zombies and other amulets like this,” says Phramaha Watcharapung Kaviwungso, a saffron-robed Buddhist monk warily examining the grotesque doll-like totem.
“The next highest level of believers buy amulets which have the faces of Buddhist monks. The highest level of believers are people like me, who believe only in Buddha.”
Most Thais are Buddhists, but they also mix a bewildering slew of other beliefs — including Hindu, animist and superstitions — into their spiritual outlook.
Buddha was not into amulets, and advised followers to ignore such illusions. But today’s Thais surround themselves with as much protection as possible by wearing, carrying or keeping at home one or more small amulets.
An amulet for every occasion
According to believers, amulets can bring good luck, true love, wild sex, cold cash or exquisite relief from obscure personal problems.
This round amulet portrays Hinduism’s elephant-headed Lord Ganesh.
The pieces come in all styles and shapes, made of metal, wood, bone or plaster, and can include sacred ash from incense, colored dust from a temple’s bricks, human hair or other material.
Some portray Buddha, or a famous senior monk, in bas-relief. Others depict a mythical creature or cryptic script, often in Khmer language, which may be indecipherable.
Thailand is one of the world’s biggest producers, sellers and exporters of amulets, which are available in every Thai city and village. Some men, including tough guys in danger of being killed, wear a necklace of several big, heavy amulets in a pretentious form of Buddhist bling.
Antique or rare amulets can fetch more than 3.3 million baht. Most Thais, however, usually get their amulets at a Buddhist temple after making a small donation, or by rummaging among humble stalls where prices begin at five or 10 baht.
The stories explaining most amulets are often half-remembered, and can change depending upon who is describing the charm and its powers.
Invisibility and protection
The two-headed baby zombie sells for about 200 baht at Bert Bu’s shop, in Bangkok’s main amulet market near Phra Chan Road, next to Thammasat University, along the Chao Phraya River. It is made of ‘pressed powder,’ hardened to form the shape of Thailand’s legendary Khu Mon Tong.
According to some legends, Khu Mon Tong is a baby who died, perhaps stillborn. His loving father fed Khu Mon Tong’s corpse, and successfully reanimated its spirit, which gratefully protected the parent. Anyone who buys a Khu Mon Tong amulet and diligently feeds it a morsel of food every day, offers it toys and calls it “my son,” can hope to be protected from enemies.
Some Buddhist amulets can be sinister things. Fanatics have created Khu Mon Tong amulets by using the crushed skull of a baby, or with the dripping oil from a roasted infant.
A buyer uses a small magnifying glass to scrutinize an amulet.
A much more popular and peaceful amulet shows a faceless Buddha sitting cross-legged, atop a layered plinth.
The rectangular amulet, often called a ‘Phra Somdet,’ is easy to produce from a plaster-like substance, and is frequently given to devotees at Buddhist temples. On the reverse side, it may include the name of the temple, or the monk who manufactured it, or other information.
One version has a small fish bone embedded in the back, which some people believe bestows special powers, and costs a mere 10 baht. Another amulet is illustrated with a large ship, and is sometimes called a ‘Krom Ma Luang Chumporn.’ It is said to protect people during ocean voyages.
A chubby cross-legged man, covering his face with both hands, depicts a devout monk who resembled the Lord Buddha. People mistakenly worshipped him, thinking he was actually Buddha, until he hid his face so no one could see him, according to believers.
The amulet is called a ‘Phra Phid Ta,’ which translates as ‘monk closed eyes.’ Possess this amulet, and you will remain virtually invisible to your opponents, they say.
Just superstition? Wearers swear by their amulets
Professional collectors will whip out a tiny magnifying glass and scrutinize an amulet’s details to determine if it is genuine or one of the many forgeries offered to unsuspecting buyers. To create a bestseller, monks pray intensely over a batch of fresh amulets, and perform other acts to infuse the item with spiritual functions.
These dinner plate-sized icons show “Phra Pid Ta,” though most collectors buy smaller amulets that can be worn on a necklace.
Huge fortunes are made from selling amulets, prompting allegations of corrupt monks and temples raking in massive profits, which are unaccounted for and tax-free. Complaints are also frequently voiced about the blatant commercialization of Thai-style Buddhism — and its degeneration into mindless superstition — that tarnishes Buddha’s lofty ideals.
But believers swear that their favorite amulet saved their life during a car crash or violent attack. To boost morale, Thailand’s military has even handed out amulets to its Buddhist soldiers fighting in the south against Muslim separatists.
Thailand’s amulet bazaars include shops selling tiny plastic or glass containers — ringed by metal, silver or gold — to enshrine an amulet while wearing it on a necklace or storing it at home. Rules to obey while wearing an amulet include removing it during sexual intercourse and keeping it off the floor and away from people’s feet.
Thieves target temples, shops and homes if they think they can steal expensive amulets, creating an irony in which ‘protective amulets’ need protection. People who complain that their amulet failed, however, are usually told that it works only if the person who possesses it is a pious Buddhist, creating a marvelous loophole to avoid refunds.

Solid Copper Sothorn Buddha Amulet – Sale!

Solid copper oval Sothorn Buddha Amulet from Wat Sothorn

copper-sothorn-buddha-rev

Order at our other site here: Joy’s Lucky Gifts >

We have some of these beautiful solid copper limited edition Sothorn Buddha amulets from Wat Sothorn. The previous price was $89.95.

We are dropping the price to just $59.95 and much cheaper if you order more than one.

At least until we sell all but a couple of them. We’d like to keep some for ourselves – we love the clean design. Apparently the monks and amulet sellers at Wat Mahathat in Nakhon Si also revere this amulet as most of them have numerous copies of it on display, but not for sale. They like the amulets too much to sell them. On our most recent amulet-hunting trip we came across one of our old friends that had a batch of them they were willing to sell for an unheard of price. So, we’re passing the savings to you. This is one of the nicest… no, this is THE NICEST copper Buddha amulet we have ever seen. It is hands down our favorite, and we will be keeping a couple for ourselves. The price on this is just $59.95, down from $90 when we had only a couple to sell and couldn’t find anyone willing to sell us more. It is very doubtful we’ll be able to find these amulets ever again, and definitely not at a price that allows us to sell them for under $40.

Included is the Paypal button to order below. Or, if you want 2, you can have them for $64.95. If you want 3, you can have them for $89.95. If you want more, use the menu in the order button below to see how low we go if you buy 6 amulets.We have a couple of dozen.

Singapore Amulet Buyers >

This article addresses some things that buyers of Thai amulets living in Singapore will find interesting!

Update: We have since been to Singapore and saw some of the amulets on the market. We think the prices are outrageous, but I guess that’s what most people prefer, is buying on-site. We offer significant savings for real amulets from Thailand – I hope you have a look at our main shop to see if there’s anything you might want.

New Jatukam Ramathep Amulet Videos

Green Ceramic Background - Solid SIlver Buddha Amulet from ThailandIf you want to see some of the Jatukam Ramathep amulets we have in a video where we go through and talk about the ones we have, we are in the process of uploading 3 separate videos to Youtube to share the information with you.

There are many kinds of Jatukam Ramathep amulets, but basically the Jatukam Style is:

  • Round, flat like a coin or only moderately raised
  • Jatukam Ramathep on the front, or Buddha
  • The temple the amulet came from on the reverse, or, a sacred geometrical yant design
  • Jatukam is sometimes surrounded by demons

The Jatukam craze has died down recently, yet most people in Thailand are still wearing and buying these amulets – especially from the original temple where these amulets were first inspired and created. The name of the temple is Wat Mahathat. We visit often, and we buy the best Jatukam amulets they have each time we see them.

We have a number of solid silver, plated silver, tri-color, solid copper, and gold Jatukam amulets in our collection. Some we will sell, well, most we will sell, but we will also keep at least one of each style for ourselves in our own collection. The value of these amulets is increasing each year as there are no more new ones being made. We have some excellent Jatukam Ramatheps – if you want the best, ask us which you should have for your own unique and rare collection.

Thai Amulets from Thailand to Singapore

Map of Singapore, the country.

We have been fortunate to enjoy a lot of traffic to our amulet sites from three big places in the world:

  • Singapore
  • USA
  • Malaysia

In that order, is where we get the top 3 most visitors from to look at our Buddhist amulets. It is hard to believe in one aspect, that Singapore can bring so much traffic to our site, but, Singapore has about 5 million residents and 33+ percent of them are Buddhist. So, makes more sense, right?

We have sold a lot of amulets to buyers in Singapore, but we really could do many more sales if we had someone in Singapore that was an agent of our business.

We need help!

If you are located in SG and you either have a jewelry business now, or you want to start one, I think the opportunity is definitely there. For some reason, Singaporeans are very distrustful of transactions taking place online. I have heard from many people in SG that they get scammed often. I wonder how is it that they are getting scammed more often than people in the USA, UK, AUS, Canada, and other places? We get many more orders for our Buddhist items from these countries than we do from Singapore.

Anyway, it would be GREAT to find someone we can trust in Singapore to help us sell the amulets. Ideally, you could buy a couple hundred amulets for a good price, and then sell them yourself, re-ordering with us as necessary. It wouldn’t take much out of our business because we only get a few orders per month from SG. With all this traffic we are getting from there, we should have about 20 orders per month from your country.

What that means is, there is a need for someone to offer high quality Jatukam, Sothorn Buddha, Jinnarat Buddha, Ganesh, Kwan Yin, and other deities and monk amulets to people in Singapore -right there on-site so people know they are not going to get scammed.

IS THERE ANYONE IN SINGAPORE THAT WANTS TO DO THIS WITH US?

If not, we’re going to have to go there and setup a shop on our own. That will be frustrating and take some time and money. I think it will be successful without a doubt though.

If you want to start this business in Singapore – we can help. Contact us. Please don’t contact us if you don’t want to spend money for inventory – we can’t bankroll you, that would be idiocy on our part.

We have about 2,500 authentic amulets direct from Buddhist temples here in our area, and at some of the best Buddhist temples in Thailand. We can give you the best for a pittance over cost, and you can have a good business. If you are interested in more information we have for our Singapore amulet buyers – click here.

Dark green Buddhist bracelet for Christmas!
Dark green Buddhist bracelet for Christmas!

We just found a new bracelet like we haven’t seen before here in Thailand. We bought about 10 of them, and will get more if there is enough demand to warrant buying more than we have. These have a special braid, and feature some sort of polished stone balls, along with jade balls on them (the green ones). Colors vary a little bit – meaning the colors of the stone balls. If you want yellow balls on yours, or don’t – state your preference in an email to us.

If you are looking for a great little gift for Buddhists in your circle of family or friends, this is a nice item someone will be happy to receive!

The price is just $18 and we will include a couple of other blessed Buddhist bracelets with them (with the rolled metal prayer scrolls). Shipping is free, and if you want to order more than one, send us email and we’ll try to give you a better price. :) Joy

40 New Jatukam Ramathep Amulets From Nakhon Si Thammarat – Page 1 of 8

Last weekend we were lucky to get away for a Buddhist holiday and some travel. One place we love to go is the origin place of the Jatukam Ramathep amulets found in Nakhon Si Thammarat’s Wat Mahathat temple.

Though it was extremely busy, we were able to get in and find some of the amulets that we couldn’t find before. It’s funny how sometimes there are amulets there to buy, and sometimes none at all. On this trip we found some that were originally priced at very high prices, and that day they sold them for reasonable prices so we could buy some. I think maybe for the holiday weekend.

Below are some of the amulets, and we’ll make a few pages because our blog software only allows us to post about 6 photos at a time for some reason.

If you want to see the reverse side of any amulet, just let us know. We didn’t take photos of the reverse sides, taking 40 amulet photos was a lot of work because we have to make sure they are in focus, and the color is close to the real way it shows.

All of these amulets are over $70 each if bought individually. If you buy 3+ at a time, we can apply a discount.

We are posting these amulets like this on our blog for everyone to see at the same time because we have a few buyers that like to buy most or all of the Jatukam amulets we have. They are collectors, and so other people don’t get to order them sometime. So, if you want one, let us know quickly so we can send you a Paypal invoice.

All amulets come with a stainless steel case, or the case that is already on the amulet. If you want us to switch the case that is on it with a stainless steel case for free – no problem, we can.

All amulets here come with a free necklace that fits the size and style of the amulet. All amulets come with free blessed Buddhist bracelets.

All amulets here come with free shipping and tracking – worldwide. There are some countries we do not ship to. Let us know which country you are from and we will tell you if we ship there.

We do ship to: USA, Canada, France, Germany, UK, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines usually, Belgium, Sweden, Netherlands, Spain, New Zealand, and many other countries.

We really love the solid white Jatukam Ramatheps, and our collectors love them too. This one looks great with the case provided, or a traditional stainless steel case would also look great.

This is a tri-color Jatukam Ramathep with a fancy case and fancy, never before seen design. This is an authentic original and we have not seen one in this style before. If nobody buys this one, we will add it to our own collection.

This is a solid copper Jatukam amulet with a beautifully detailed design. We really like the high details in some of the amulets, and this one is a favorite for that reason. We almost didn't see this one as it was under some older clay amulets at the bottom of the display case. It pays to dig through the entire collection when trying to find them.

New Phra Pidta Amulets!

A small very rare white jade Phra Pidta amulet from Wat Lahn Kuat Temple in Sisaket, and part of the WLK Collection.We have had these very rare Phra Pidta amulets in stock for over five years now. We just never put them up for sale, but today we found them again at the bottom of our pile of thousands of amulets, and we thought it was a good time for them!

See the Phra Pidta History >

See Our Phra Pidta WLK Collection (White Jade) – very rare (one-of-a-kind)

These amulets have some interesting history. At Wat Lahn Kuat in the very south of Sisaket province in the Northeast where I am from, they made this beautiful hand-carved white jade Buddha about 11 years ago. The block they started from was large, and exorbitant in price. This was a one-time purchase of the block of jade from the quarry. The abbot had blessed it, along with dozens of other monks in a long ceremony to ensure it was worthy as a representative of the white Buddha they’d soon be carving.

After they carved it, they put it in the Main bot where anyone can go see it. The place is full of a million bottles decorating the walls of all the buildings at the temple. It is quite a sight to see.

So, they had many kilograms of white jade pieces left after the big white Buddha was finished. They decided to create a number of smaller amulets for people to wear. These Phra Pidta amulets are directly from this block of white jade!

They made white jade Somdej Toh amulets. They made triangle shaped Somdej amulets. They made some rectangle Nong Kwak amulets, and then finally, they made these lovely little Phra Pidta amulets!

Phra Pidta is a representative of a monk who was meditating deep in the state of absorption called “Jhana.” Jhana is an experience where the mind is so relaxed, so peaceful and non-plussed, that it the regular five senses that we use everyday as we go through life – don’t function. The senses literally stop – so no sense-objects are created. There is pure watching with the mind, of what is going on inside – not outside the body.

Phra Pidta covers his eyes in the amulet figures because it is symbolizing being deep in Jhana and that the outside world is of no effect – of no consequence.

So, because this is seen as a sort of magical state – people came to believe that Phra Pidta amulets would be good for financial gain. And, that is how it has been. These amulets are the most recommended by monks when asked which amulets can bring back a person’s wealth, whether talking about business related wealth, or personal wealth. Some people even use this for lottery.
