Features of Thai Amulets.

A Thai Buddha amulet (Thai: พระเครื่อง; RTGS: phrakhrueang), often referred to academically as "votive tablet", is a type of Thai Buddhist blessed item. It is used to raise funds to help the temple's operations. A Thai Buddhist monk will give an amulet to Buddhists as a "gift" after they donate money or offerings to the temple. The amulets are then no longer considered a "gift", but a "tool" to enhance luck in different aspects of life. Local people also use amulets to improve their marriage, wealth, health, love, and relationships.

Amulets are made using the Buddha image, an image of a famous monk, or even an image of the monks who made the amulets. Amulets vary in size, shape, and materials such as plaster, bone, wood, or metal. They may include ash from incense or old temple structures or hair from a famous monk to add protective power to the amulets. After the amulets are made, the maker will then ask the monks who live in the temple, or monks from other temples, to congregate in order to chant, pray, and bless the amulets.

“Some amulets are passed down from parent to child or teacher to student, and some are traded on the open market. Amulets are part of an 'economy of merit,' a karmic system in which acts of kindness, charity, and empathy are rewarded with future benefits. You reap what you sow. They are used for protection and for ensuring a successful outcome when you feel that your merit account is low.”
