Buddhist & Animist Amulets and Charms



Thai Buddhist Amulets and Charms

Introduction

Thai Buddhists and Animists, along with Brahmins all have the belief in "Saiyasart". Otheriwse knowns as "Saiyawaes" the word "Waes" meaning the same as the word "Veda". The Vedas were discovered by the Ruesi, or "Rishi" or otherwise called "Lersi". The first generation of ruesi practised self control and renunciation; they meditated until they were able to perceive the higher realms and listen to the "Dtaewadtaa" (Thai), or "Deva" (Sanskrit).They recorded the magical hymns and psalms and wrote them down as "The Vedas". The Vedas is one of Hindu/Brahmin Philosophy's great Sacred Works, easily comparable to the Bible of Christianity.

The word Waes in Thai means something similar to a magickal spell.


One one of the ways to cast such a Spell is to chant a "Kata",
A Kata is a Magick chant or "Mantra-like" invocation/evocation which imports a magickal effect on the object/person targeted.



Most practitioners of Sayawaes/Saiyasart believe in the power of Kata Aakom (AAkom means magickal), and use them in various ways for a myriad of purposes.

The Ruesi also created Yantras, sacred geometrical designs with Kata inscribed within them.
The majoroty of these Kata are Buddhist in Orientation, but have incorporated many aspects of shamanism, Brahminism and local Animist beliefs and practises.
