Frequently Asked Question

Q. Do I need to do anything before I wear my Thai amulet?

Before wearing your amulet, you should pay respect to Lord Buddha and the monk that created the image.

You should have a calm heart and focused mind. Hold the amulet between your palms in a praying gesture. Breathe in deeply and slowly Then chant the following Mantra three times:

"Namo Tassa Phakhawato Arahato Samma Sambudh Tassa"

In this verse we pay respect to the lord Buddha. We can also make a similar request in our native tongue

. "I, a humble one, invite the Lord Buddha and Luang Phor..... [name(s)] to sit on my head to protect me, bring me good luck, a victory, and fulfilment of my wishes."

Finally we may chant the following Mantra:

"BudDhang PraSitThiMae DhamMang PraSitThiMae Sangkhang PraSitThiMae."

In this verse we ask the Triple Gems, Lord Buddha, Dhamma and Sangkha to bless and fulfil our requests. Place the amulet on your neck.
