Here are some photos of some Takrut amulets (rolled scrolls) that we have not yet put on the site for sale. Takruts are rolled up scrolls of bark, paper, brass leaf, gold leaf, silver leaf, tin, cloth, animal skin, or something else that can be written on or engraved upon. Takruts have a long history in Thailand and you can find people wearing them in all walks of life. These are good luck amulets and give the wearer some comfort in knowing that things will be going their way as much as possible.
The prayers and symbols on the inside are created by the monks that write them, and they are chanted over in mass chantings before being sold at the Buddhist temples in Thailand. Often times there is a certain symbolic nature to the takruts and the same symbols are used on each one sold at a specific temple (wat).
The takruts below are all fairly weatherproofed, but if you swim with them or subject them to water repeatedly, they will leak. It is better to respect the amulet and take it off before your shower or swimming. All the metal takruts will discolor over time, it is a natural function of the metal. Few metals don’t change due to high temperature, humidity, exposure to salty skin, etc.
If you are interested in one or more of these, just email us for information on price – letting us know the item number. You can have free necklace, bracelets, and shipping on all our Takrut amulets.
