Phra Rod - Wat Pra Singh

Introduction

Phra Rod has been an extremely popular amulet throughout Thai history probably due to the meaning of its name; success in escaping misfortune or danger.

Thai people believe that this amulet would help the wearer escape from or avoid danger and misfortune. originally Phra Rod was called Rod Ko Puan, which in Northern Dialect means, the smallest, referring to the size of the amulet.

They are without doubt the oldest style and examples have been found that date back thousands of years. Most popular amongst collectors are those that originate from Wat Mahawan and icorporated in thge grand set of five, known as benjapakee.

Unfortunately today it is just about impossible to acquire such a pim unless you are extremely wealthy.


A far more sensible choice are those amulets created at Wat Prasingh, Changmai in BE 2496 as they contain powders from the original Wat Mahawan amulets and are thought to provide similar levels of protection. Not only that trhey were blessed by sone of Thailands greatest monks.

The most sought after batch was blessed in BE 2496.
