There are some remarkable Ajarns in the viscinity of Chiang Mai and I am slowly discovering where they are and what aspect of magic they are best at. This pair of amulets (yes, 2 for the price listed) are made from carved one eye coconuts by the local Master of Rahu, Ajarn Jack of Lampang. These are stunning Rahu! Ajarn Jack carves and blesses all his Rahu galaa himself, making them in pairs, which is the Lanna way, to the Sun and the Moon and are especially active on fthe full moon or an eclipse.
This pair is the large version.
The front is hand carved to show the head of Rahu eating a globe and the back is both gilded and etched with the relevant kata for either the sun or the moon. These are known in the region as Tau Mia and Tau Puu, male and female versions of Rahu that are often referred to as husband and wife. There are 2 kata with this but not too difficult and I have cased them in two halves with a flat back on one ring, so they sit as one amulet but can split apart so you can see the inside.
These amulets feel alive and they tingle the whole of the body, a sign that the quality of Serm Duang is strong in these. Serm Duang 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 main days of the phases of the moon (4 per month) and on Buddhist holy days, when he enjoys black foods and candles, the details of which will be given to the buyer - or can be found in my book - The Thai Occult, which is now also available as a pdf. I love Rahu as he is an extremely rewarding deity if praised correctly.
These measure 2.75" and come with Ajarns kata.
This is stunning work from a Rahu Master!
A Superb Pair of Rahu Galaa Amulets to the Sun and Moon by Ajarn Jack
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.
I offer a 30 days return policy with a refund on receipt of the item but for some items I cannot do that as they need blessing again by the maker, some of whom I do not know personally. This is a problem with spiritual items but I will always endeavor to help where I can.
