Buddhist Amulets

Buddhist Amulets in Thailand are an extremely widespread phenomenon. Amulets
made from all sorts of different materials and compositions are to be
encountered. Amulets are made according to Ancient Buddhist Traditional
Amulet recipes and formulas; created by both Buddhist Monks in
Thailands Theravada Temples, and also by Laymen and Brahmin Masters.

The different forms of Amulets in Thailand
are so many that on-one really knows how many different editions and
types there really are in existence.Amulet Markets are to be found in
almost every district of every town in Thailand, apart from the fact
that most Thai Buddhist Temples create and "rent" (one never uses the term "buy" for an Amulet in Thai Buddhism) Amulets to faithful disciples.

Some of the various forms of Amulets & Buddhist Charms are;
  1. Cement (พระผง) Buddha Amulets (natural ingredients are used to create a cement like substance, which is hardened into the desired consistency).
  2. Monk Coins (เหรียนพระ); made from various pure or mixed Metals
  3. Magic Charms in various forms, such as; Thagrud (ตะกรุด) Yant, or Yantra if you prefer, which are inscribed on various mediums, such as metal leaf, cloth, ivory, wild boar's tusks etc.
  4. Magical weapons, such as Vajra (วัชิระ ), Anti-Ghost Knives (มีดหมอ), clubs (กระบอง).
