This will be a short history and bio of the monk who entered supernatural realms, called, “Phra Pidta.” We have a number of amulets in this style, read more about it below.

WHO IS PHRA PIDTA?

The Pidta style amulet with a monk sitting in full or half-lotus position and with his hands covering his eyes and face is a style that has become very popular among Thai Buddhists, but other Buddhists across the world as well.

Phra Pidta is a representation of a venerable monk well known for deep samadhi meditation (absorption) during Siddhartha Buddha’s time more than 2,550 years ago.

Why Is Phra Pidta Holding His Hands Over His Eyes in Amulets?

Hands over the eyes symbolizes a blocking out of the outside world during intense Sammabart meditation. This is jhana level meditation which can also cross-over into Abhinna. Abhinna are supernatural experiences which people meditating in the fourth Jhana can sometimes attain.

What Are the Benefits of Renting Phra Pidta Amulets?

People buy these amulets to increase their wealth primarily. Business prosperity is a major benefit of this amulet. Yet, there are said to be many benefits of the amulets including good luck and protection from harm of all sorts.
