I adore a good Rahu talisman and the best are made using a one eye coconut, which takes a long time to do as all carved by hand. The production of this style of talisman takes a long time, which affects costs and one eye coconuts are rare to find in nature, maybe only a few in 10,000. These have come from Kruba Mongkorn and he follows the old Lanna way to produce these, which was made famous by Kruba Intaa over a century ago. These are actually two amulets that are sold together and were attached like castanets. Generally, I would case these apart but hang them together but in this case there is a small Takrut on the string and I did not want to disturb it.
The work in this is exceptional and shows the Rahu Demon on the front of each side, with one eating a golden sun and the other eating a red moon. This is eclipse magic relating to Rahu, who controls much oif the magic for great fortune and fate, and is praised on the phases of the moon and when any eclipse occurs. The back of each half has astrological magic carved into the coconut shell but this has then had red lacquer applied so it difficult to see. In the Lanna region they believe that the magic of this is stored in the gap between the pieces and therefore, combining them in this way is beneficial and with the inside not being as beautiful as say the Kruba Boonmaa versions, casing together was best.
Rahu is famous for the attricute of Serm Duang, which is the attribute of refreshing the lines of fate and lifting the fortunes, something for which Rahu is renowned and it is why the people of this region turn to Rahu when things get tough. Rahu likes to have offerings on the full moon, periods of eclipse and Buddhist days, enjoying either 3, 5 or 8 black foods and candles, the details of which will be given to the buyer. It is OK to give 3 if it is easier, because praising him can help everyone and if the devotee is helped, the merit of that action passes to the maker and to the deity himself. I love Rahu as an extremely rewarding deity if praised correctly.
This Rahu measures 3" in its case and these are stunning pieces from a well known Chiang Mai Kruba. They are superbly carved, very well painted and are of a quality that this makes them good value, both as a talisman and because of the effect these have on our good fortune.

A Beautiful Pair of Hand Carved Rahu Galaa Amulets by Kruba Mongkorn
The Rahu talisman is an ancient invocation of Brahmin forces to realign the lines of fate into a more favourable direction. He has specific needs and the best ones are made from one eyed coconut, which can bring a surprising clout to the item. Rarely prai in nature but they can be made from a galaa that has been used in funerary practices of old or to mix materials for spells and incantations.
