A Rare Tao Samlee from Kruba Wong

This is a type of relic that is now rarely seen. It is what is known as a Tao Samlee, which literally translates as 'Cotton Wool Turtle', and the ones from Kruba Wong are very highly valued. They came in two forms, this one, which has the hair and chang mak within, and a higher grade one that has blessed candle wax and gold leaf (I have that one). These came out a long time ago but the odd one turns up second hand, which are instantly recognisable.

Kruba Wong is one of the three great Kruba's of this region, along with Kruba Sri Wichai and Kruba Khaopi, who all resident in the same area and had a mutally strong psychic connection. Kruba Wong is praised by the Karen people of the area he lived as Wat Phrabat Huai Tom provided the teaching and support they needed. Their bond holds to this day.

Arahant monks have exceptional Samathi, and this item can help the bearer in their pursuit of it. It  calms the mind, and comes with exceptional levels of Metta Mahaniyom, and bringing support from the people close by, which leads it to being great for business success. The original listing also said that it helps with the gambles in life, brings wealth and good fortune, and protection from above.

A classic item that measures 1.9" in its simple silver case and needs praising as a high deity, one level below the Buddha. These cannot be recased due to their nature and my craftsman made a great job of edging it with thick silver.

This is one of my favourite amulet types.

A Rare Tao Samlee from Kruba Wong

  • Important relics include any part of the monk's body, but his hair, teeth, saliva and tears are what are most sought after. It is an old practice, and these items should be valued above all others to get us through the coming times. These work for us and we do not intrude on that process, they are there to help, as monks are in life.
