Thai Buddha Amulets in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia?

Tower at night in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Recently we took a trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Penang Island. We walked around a lot and we were surprised that we found no Thai amulets, no Buddhist amulets for sale at any shop in those two cities. There must be some, but we just didn’t happen to see any shop dedicated to selling Buddha, Kwan Yin, or Ganesh amulets.

We did see some jade shops, and we actually bought a couple of items at one of these shops. The jade quality wasn’t so great, but the price was right.

If you are living in Malaysia and you want to start an amulet business, just get in contact with us and let us know what your budget is for buying amulets from us. We will give you as many different kinds as possible for the amount you spend, that way you can see what sells and what doesn’t.

Malaysia has 28 million people living in the country and 20% are Buddhist according to Wiki’s stats. Over 5 million Buddhists and many of them are buying amulets or don’t know where they can go and preview and browse amulet collections. We have many orders for Buddha amulets from Malaysia, and yet I think we could sell a lot more through a small shop or stand located in a mall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital city.

If anyone is interested in this, and you speak English well enough to communicate and resolve business issues, then let us know. Email:

New Thai Amulet Sales Flickr.com Photo Collection

Thai Amulet Sales Flickr.com Page

We just uploaded some of our amulet trays to Flickr.com so we can share them with you. We don’t even have these new images on the website yet, it is just easier to post the photos at Flickr.

NOTE – WE PULLED OUR FLICKR ACCOUNT DOWN. :P

We will be adding photos of Buddhist temples, monks, magee, and other Buddhist things to this photo page so we can share a little bit about Thailand with you. My husband is a good photographer, and I am getting good, but it will take me some more time!

OK, thank you for being customers of our small business. We appreciate every order and try to give something free every time we send an item out through the mail.

Reminder – we are sending to Malaysia and Singapore now on a case-by-case basis. If you want to order from one of these countries, let us know and we’ll see about fulfilling your order.

Metta,

:) Joy

Best Place in Thailand to Buy Thai Amulets?

Chedi at Wat Phra Mahathat Buddhist Temple in Nakhon si ThammaratThe best place to find Thai amulets to buy in Thailand is, of course, at one of the many Buddhist temples in the country.

After studying Buddhist amulets for a few months we decided that the best way we could begin an amulet business was by offering amulets straight from the Buddhist temples close to us – on the internet where people across the world could buy them.

The Thai amulets we sell are available at temples in southern and northeastern Thailand. We don’t have a monopoly on them. We don’t make them. We don’t have any special deals on them when we purchase them from the temple – even if we purchase in bulk. We accept whatever price they say – and purchase them to sell to you wherever in the world you are.

If you are coming to Thailand – don’t buy amulets from us online. Just buy them at the temples. Same, 100% authentic amulets.

Are all Buddhist temples selling authentic amulets?

Yes, and no.

Some Thai Buddhist temples don’t sell Thai amulets at all. Wat Suan Mokkh in Chaiya, north of Surat Thani – don’t sell any amulets whatsoever. The founder, Buddhadasa Bhikku, didn’t believe in them. He has since passed on, but the belief remains – and nobody is to sell amulets at that temple. There are t-shirts in the library, and some postcards and books, some videotapes and audio CD’s, but no amulets, Thai bracelets, necklaces, or anything like that.

Most temples do sell amulets. If there are monks or majee (nuns) working at the amulet stand, you can assume it is an official collection of amulets for the temple you are at. If it is a kind man or woman, then most likely this amulet stand is NOT full of genuine articles. The amulets at such a stand are probably blessed by the monks and or abbot of the temple you are at, but, there are probably some that are official from the temple – and some that are not. Which are which? Anyone’s guess.

Buy only from the Thai amulet stands that are operated by monks or majee. This way you cannot go wrong.

From across the globe you can buy Thai amulets at our amulet shop where we now have over 400 amulets for sale. We give you a free necklace with every amulet, two free blessed Buddhist bracelets from the temple, and free shipping.

Buying direct from the temple, or buying from us – buying direct from the temple – you are guaranteed to be receiving official, 100% authentic Thai Buddhist (Theravada Buddhist) amulets. You are sure to have a good experience.

Nakhon Si Thammarat Amulets

Kwan Yin Thai Amulet in Lotus Shaped Gold CaseYou may have noticed on our new amulet pages we have expanded to include some new Thai amulets from Nakhon si Thammarat in the south. The name of this famous southern Thailand temple is “Wat Mahatat” like the world famous Bangkok temple, Wat Phra Mahatat.

Wat Mahatat Buddha, Kwan Yin, and Buddhist monk amulets are famous in Thailand as this wat is the major one for the southern provinces. Even some Thais in Bangkok prefer this wat.

The quality of amulets at this Thai temple is the same as as Wat Tham Suea temple that we have offered for years. If you haven’t seen our new amulet pages you should visit our Thai amulet store at our main url: www.ThaiAmuletSales.com and see the selection of new amulets available. We now have about 300 amulets online for you you browse through and buy – ordering online.

If you are visiting southern Thailand and you want to stop by this temple, you really should! It is a giant place with many interesting stupas, Buddhas, and other statues to see. There will be many people there and you should bring your camera and video cameras to save the memory.

Genuine Thai Amulets – Made Where?

Many people believe that genuine Thai amulets just come from Thailand. That’s true, and yet, there’s more to it than that. Thai amulets are Buddhist. Theravada Buddhist to be exact. The only place real Theravada Buddhist amulets from Thailand are made is at a Buddhist temple.

If the temple is not large enough they have monks and other craftsmen make the amulets and they are blessed at the temple by the abbot (head) of the temple.

Is there any way for you as a buyer to know if the amulet you’re buying is a genuine Thai amulet or not? There are many little hints that you can add up to get the big picture, but there is no way to really be sure.

We get all our amulets from Wat Tum Sua in southern Thailand. This is called, “Tiger Cave Temple” in translation from Thai. Every amulet Wat Thum Suea (also spelled this way) sells is blessed by the abbot in charge of the temple – Ajarn Jumnien, Thailand’s good luck monk.

We built a website to feature this temple because before this none existed, you can find the temple photos and information – along with layout – map, here:

http://wattumsua.thaipulse.com

You can rest assured that we have genuine amulets from a Buddhist temple. Guaranteed 100%.
