Solid copper oval Sothorn Buddha Amulet from Wat Sothorn

copper-sothorn-buddha-rev

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. Use the button below to order directly at Paypal on their secure pages, or just send the payment to us through Paypal using the “SEND MONEY” option once you login to your account. Our account to receive payments is: thaiamuletsalescom@gmail.com.

We just created an entire page to reach our Singapore buyers of Thailand amulets. We are going to try to focus more on helping buyers from this tiny country this year. In the past we didn’t realize just how many Buddhists were there!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Wat Phra Mahathat Woromaha Vihan Buddhist Temple, Nakhon Si Thammarat

Chedi at Wat Phra Mahathat Buddhist Temple in Nakhon si ThammaratMany people see the name of this temple on our site and don’t know anything about it. Here is some information you might find helpful as you think about which amulets to buy.

Jatukam Ramathep amulets originated in this temple twenty-seven years ago. Most of the Jatukams we sell from Wat Mathathat were made in the Buddhist year 2550. This year we are coming up on 2557.

Jatukham Rammathep style amulets were incredibly popular in 2550. There were a number of stories that came out in the local Thailand media about people wearing Jatukam Ramathep amulets who were robbed at gun and knife-point, but who had extraordinary good luck as the bullets would not fire from the gun pointed at them, or the knife blade would not pierce their skin. Thais attributed this protection to the powers of the Jatukam amulets and a mad dash to purchase Jatukams fueled the nation for a few years. There were many robberies by criminals looking to possess other people’s Jatukam amulets. Many deaths and injuries occurred during these robberies. So much so, that the supreme Buddhist patriarch (monk) in Thailand removed himself from the process and refused to provide sacred materials for the amulets any longer. For some people this dropped the bottom out of the amulet craze, and for others, they just refocused on the original amulets only made in the city they originated, Nakhon Si Thammarat, in southern Thailand next to Surat Thani.

In 1987 the first Jatukam Ramathep amulets were developed and named for the two princes of the Srivijaya kingdom of southern Thailand (which also once included Malaysia). There are stories about the name being from the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, popular among Mahayana Buddhists of Malaysia and southern Thailand. The man starting these amulets was not a monk, but a highly revered police chief in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Khun Pan, or, Khun Phantarak Rajjadej. He believed that the Jatukam amulet he wore helped him solve a murder case.

Khun Pan died in the Buddhist year 2550. After he passed away on September 5, the Jatukam Ramathep amulets grew in popularity because of some stories I mentioned about people protected from harm that were wearing the amulets.

Wat Mahathat produced a number of special edition amulets, and some solid silver Khun Pan amulets (which we sell at ThaiAmuletSales.com) under the Jatukam Amulets section.

The Jatukam production didn’t stop there. Soon temples across the entire nation were consumed with producing as many different types of Jatukam amulets as possible. Simple clay amulets were selling for 3,000 to 5,000 Thai Baht. This is around $100 to $170 USD. Many amulets were selling for 30,000 to 100,000 Thai Baht for special editions. For Thais to spend $1,000 to $3,000 USD on amulets is really something, but many Thais did so, even taking loans out to afford such amazing amulets. Estimates put sales of Jatukam Ramathep in 2007 at over $650 million dollars US.

The desire for these amulets went unchecked. In April of 2550 a woman was killed in a stampede to make reservations for a new batch of special Jatukam amulets being manufactured by the monks at the Wat Mahathat temple in Nakhon. As a result, Thailand’s supreme patriarch, Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara, (secular – Charoen Khotchawat) stopped helping to create the powerful amulets.
