A Maekasit 4 Ears 5 Eyes by Kruba Boonlert in silver - to raise the fortunes

I love the imagery of 4 Ears 5 Eyes amulets and Kruba Boonlert is THE maker for this lucky old demon, despite being well into his 80's. These were made in 2547, 20 years ago and came from old stock at his temple. Kruba's imagery for the demon is brilliant, and the back has raised Akhara with the silver case highlighting the great patina. Maekasit amulets are rare and the best quality versions (like this one) are now difficult to source.

Maekasit is a spiritually active metal, and very few makers have mastered the technique of compounding this alloy, making what has been produced rare and costly. The basic ingredients are copper, lead, sulfur, mercury, diverse herbs and sacred oils and each master has his own personal formula and therefore bring forth alloys of slightly different coloring. With Maekasit, the best is when there's flashes of green and these pieces have that! You can feel the potency of this piece. One of the great alloys of mercury from Thai Wicha and this is the best Maekasit I have found in a long time, and although very difficult to photo, you can see the green hue on the first two pics.

The 4 ears 5 eyes here is just the image, it is the metal and the blessing that brings the great fortune and a rise in social status that Maekasit is renowned for.

Praise it with daily fresh water, 3 incense and the Namo Dtassa chant.

These are a very cute size at 1.2" in their fine old style silver cases. A classic of Thai alchemy.

A Maekasit 4 Ears 5 Eyes by Kruba Boonlert in silver - to raise the fortunes

  • The imagery for this amulet is almost as good of the story of the amulet and the magic it carries for great fortune and serm baramee, a rise in status.

    See Hua Haa Taa is the Thai name for a monster that derives from a Hindu legend where Indra transformed herself into this demon to help people. In Thailand, the following legend is associated with this demon although there are many versions of this story due to the oral tradition in this part of the world, taking us well away from the Vedic roots. Written here is one version, but like many of the myths here, everybody seems to have their own.

    There was a beggar family of a father, mother and son, and after the mother died, the father told his son that when he dies, he should bury him until the flesh has all left his bones and then dig him up, and roll his skull along the ground. Where it stopped the son should build a trap for an animal that will come, and it will bring with it great bounty. Once his father passed away, the son dutifully fulfilled his wishes, and one day a monster was trapped, just as his father had said and it looked like a gorilla with four ears and five eyes! Under the instructions from his father, he fed it and made a bonfire to keep it warm, but the creature was so hungry that it started eating the red-hot coals from the fire. That the monster ate the coals was surprising enough for the son to see, but then the animal began to pass faeces of pure gold! There was so much gold that he had to store it away as fast as the demon produced it; otherwise, someone may see.

    It then came to pass that the King of the land was looking for a suitor for his daughter, but with the stipulation that he should offer enough money to build solid gold gutters around the Palace. It these old times no one had enough money to do such a thing except for the son, and he married the Princess as soon as the task was completed. The son had no worries about using his gold for this purpose as he believed that his supply of gold would never run out. The thought of all this gold played on the mind of the King, and he became intrigued as to how this young man came across so much gold. Eventually, the son foolishly told the story of the four ears five eyes demon, at which, the King sent his soldiers to take the animal into the Palace for his use. Unfortunately, the animal escaped and has never been seen since but he remains part of the folklore of Thailand, especially in the Lanna region.

    In Thailand the 4 Ears and the 5 Eyes represent part of the maintenance of the Buddhist principles of Dhamma practice; namely, Bhramavihara (the four ears representing; four practices of Compassion, Metta, Mutitaa (Mutual concern for the welfare of others) and Upekha (equanimity). The five eyes represent the five precepts (not killing not stealing not indulging in perverse sexual or adulterous behaviour, not lying and not taking alcohol or intoxicating substances such as drugs). The talismans produced of 4 ears 5 eyes are quite wonderful but have yet to become popular outside Asia, which is a surprise considering the beauty of both the idea, the image used and the product made. The wonderfully odd thing about having this demon at home is that one of the offerings is a piece of coal and that it should be given at midnight on the day of a full moon. It also loves flowers, certain fruits and water to quench its thirst after eating all those hot coals.  (The Thai Occult Book p432)
