Solid Copper Sothorn Buddha Pendant, Wat Phra Mahathat Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand – Item #SBCopp1
This Sothorn Buddha pendant is created of solid copper – it will not rust. It is made to last forever. It is untouched, but blessed at Wat Phra Mahathat in Nakhon Si Thammarat by the monks we purchased it from at the temple. This Buddha image is known to Buddhists as the Phra Sothorn Buddha, meaning, 3 Buddhas in one body. More specifically, meaning – Buddha, Sangha, and Dhamma in one.
On the front of the pendant it says at the bottom – Phra Si Gayamuni (name of monk creating the pendant design) – Nakhon si Thammarat (place)
On the reverse – 2552 – year the pendant was made.
Top reverse – “Noppharat Sangwan” which is the name of the pendant according to the monk that named it. It means, 9 Pendant. The number 9 in Thailand is sacred as lucky – and used for many lucky things. Thais, for instance, pay a lot of money for phone numbers or license plates with 999’s in them.
Bottom reverse – “Wat Phra Mahathat, Nakhon si Thammarat” – temple name, and city.
The image on the reverse is an open lotus flower with nine points of importance… corresponding to the points that are hard to see with the image I sent, but are points on the back. The lotus is used in many Buddhist amulets.
This pendant is for luck and safety for the wearer.
We are putting a limit of 2 per customer on this amulet, as we have a very limited supply and they are not renewable. Once gone – there are no more for sale at the temple.
