Please Mind Your Amulets
Many people wear Thai amulets as if they are common
decorative pendants without paying due respect to these holy items. In some
cases that I have come across, the amulets were simply being put on tables or
coffee tables. This action is not appropriate as the correct method is to put
these amulets in your altar when you are not wearing them.
It is said that one should only wear odd
numbers of amulets: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 etc.
put on the amulets, there is a simple action that you must do:
both the amulets with both of your hands above your head and then concentrate
on the amulets and recite the below prayer:
Namo tasa pakawato, arahato, samasam buddhasa
Poot thang ar rat tha ra nang,
Thang mang ar rat tha ra nang,
Sang kam ar rat tha ra nang,
I beseech the sacred power in the universe to
be with me.
would bring the amulets every few years for the monks to bless and empower.
