Which Thai amulets are good for business, money, or good for building up wealth?
[Page Updated: 15 October 2018]
That’s what we’ll talk about here today, money coming in amulets from Thailand.
Many Thai amulet requests we receive are from people in Singapore, Malaysia, the USA, UK, Germany, asking us how they can build their businesses or add money to their bank accounts with purchase of (renting of) an amulet.
Of course Buddha wasn’t concerned with such things, but people of today definitely are – and some amulets over time have come to light to have special properties in these areas. There is no specific style of Buddha amulet that is known for bringing money in, but there are other figures you can buy that are said to help. In particular there are TWO amulets we recommend for helping your business or yourself at your job – increase the money coming in.
Mae Nang Kwak Business Prosperity Amulets
If you look in stores and other businesses owned by Asians from all over the world, you will most often see signs of Nang Kwak (Thai – นางกวัก) figures somewhere inside the store – the main room and near the entrance. I remember walking around in Hawaii inside many stores that I guess were owned by Chinese, and seeing these strange, sometimes completely red Nang Kwaks with a funny hand position.
Today we know that Nang Kwak is waving her hand to pull customers into the store to spend money in that business.
We don’t have many of her amulets, but here are a few we found:

These Nang Kwak amulets are not usually worn around the neck here in Thailand, but they are placed on small altars in the business to help increase sales and money coming in. There is also usually a small Nang Kwak statue about 9 inches high with a cup of sand to hold incense sticks which are lit in offering to Nang Kwak so that she may bless the store with extra sales.
If you ever want to see the authenticity of the information here, just walk into nearly any Thai business in any city in Thailand and look for their Nong Kwak statue, amulets, and altar!

There is one more amulet that is good for business, wealth, and money coming in…
Phra Pidta Amulets
Pronounced Bpit taah, it means Phra (monk) Pidta (closed-eyes). The Phra Pidta amulets were originally created by Luang Phor Kaew of Wat Kruawan in Chonburi province near Bangkok, Thailand. This venerable monk lived during Buddhist years 2385 to 2470 (1842 to 1927).
Phra Kaew’s Phra Pidta amulets are some of Thailand’s best selling amulets for a number of reasons.
First, it sells well because it is just so cool looking. The monk is naked and sitting in a tight ball and covering his eyes. Usually on the body – especially of metal Phra Pidta amulets – are inscribed Pali words and even whole chants and mantras.
The monk is meditating in Sammabat meditation which allows access to Jhana levels of all sorts and qualities. It is said that when a monk – or any person – is able to reach Jhana level 4 – supernatural experiences can begin to manifest. It is these experiences the Pidta amulet is representing. The experiences themselves are called ‘abhinnas‘.
When one wears the amulet it is said that the wearer will enjoy a prosperous life filled with blessings of money, wealth, business prosperity, and meeting influential people who can help life go smoothly for the devotee.
We usually don’t have many Phra Pidta amulets because they sell so quickly. There are some we have now that we have not advertised before yesterday. We’ll put some photos below of Phra Pidta amulets we have today.
