We recently found two of these rare Jatukam Ramathep amulets at our local Wat Tham Seua Buddhist temple in Krabi, Thailand. One is maroon colored like this one, and one is black – and can be seen below among the other Buddhist items.
These Jatukams are unique for a couple of features. The first is that the Rahu, the Hindu demon that is seen in most Jatukam amulets swallowing the moon, is arranged alternately in and out in a circle around the Jatukam figure on the front of the amulet. Usually they are arranged chin-in.
The other difference is the very unique lotus shaped case holding the amulet.
The abbot of this temple, Phra Ajarn Jumnien, was granted permission to create Jatukam Amulets and made just a few. This one and the black amulet seen below are all that remains. There are no more for sale at the temple and there haven’t been for years.
The reverse side is gold plated and shows some holy Pali characters, the Chinese zodiac symbols, and star configurations arranged into a sacred yant.
