Wearing a Thai Amulet and a Buddha Necklace





We are only humans, and therefore, a large number of us make a number of mistakes when we borrow certain things or trends from other cultures, especially Oriental cultures and traditions. One of the best examples of this is Oriental jewelry pieces, which are often seen as just apparels or accessories by people. Today, we look at a classic example â Thai amulet and Buddha necklace, their uses, but most importantly, how they should be worn, according to the cultures and the countries that they have originated from.

For starters, the Thai amulet is an essentially scared item, which is worn, not just as a fashionable item, but because of the wearerâs firm beliefs in the teachings and power of Lord Buddha, and is often associated with an increased luck, better health and family relationships. You must also wash your hands before taking the amulet off. Before buying one, you have to keep in mind that the prices of them vary. For instance, the older the amulet, and the more prestigious the monk making it, the costlier it will be. There are mainly five different kinds of Thai amulets available â PhraRod, PhraSomdejWatRakhang, PhraPhongSuphan and PhraNang Phaya.

Before putting on your Thai amulet, it is necessary that you wash your hands, put the amulet between the centre of your palms, and focus your mind and energy on Buddha. One of the basic rules of wearing the amulet is that under no circumstances should it be put below the waist. You can wear it anywhere from the neck up region.

Also, the amulet should never be placed in the bedroom because it is where people engage in in sexual activities. Amulets are not to be worn when engaging in sexual activities or going to places like bars, nightclubs or pubs. As for wearing multiple amulets at the same time, there are no such prohibitions or restrictions. It is usually suggested that you take off your amulet before bathing because it can damage it, and reduce its life expectancy.

Like all holy and sacred things associated with the Lord Buddha, reverence is also shown to a Buddha necklace, which is also known as Buddha praying bead necklace. Under no circumstances, should it be used for decorative purposes, but only for spiritual and prayer purposes. Since it is used for prayer, it should never be placed on the floor or carelessly thrown across the room, or kept casually on top of something. In fact, it is a good idea to carefully fold the beaded Buddha necklace and place it near the Buddha statue, if you have one at your home, that is or hang it somewhere.

This is a thing to be repeated, no one should wear a Buddha necklace for fashion. You can wrap it around your wrist or wear it on your neck when you are praying to Buddha. When looking for a good beaded necklace, it is best if you go for the ones made of sandalwood, rosewood or even Bodhi. A lot of people also opt for the necklaces that contain semi-precious stones in them. Of course, when you are using any particular mantra during your prayers, you should do it with instructions from someone who is familiar with the Tibetan culture.
