Sunday Post about a rock in this picture

Some one brought a random $12 rock like this below and compared to true Leklai from Wat Thamfad.

They are never the same, does not work the same and will never be the same!

The unique think about Leklai from Wat Thamfad it is from the holy cave, blessed by master and its name make the world know about Leklai existence.

Please take note for those who want a piece from the original Wat Thamfad.

Out there you might see rocks like below but they are not from Wat Thamfad the origins of Leklai.

Original Leklai from Wat Thamfad:

:) They made Leklai name well known throughout the world
:) They come from a cave that have devas residing in it.
:) They are harvested only at certain auspicious timing, date and ceremony
:) They have been blessed by Leklai master LP Samrit and LP Watchara
:) They radiate rainbow colour when light shine on them
:) They require devotees to feed with honey to bring in good luck and turn more beautiful
:) They are unique for each piece will never look the same.

You might see this below out in crystal shops or streets. They are another type of rock.

Original Leklai from cave at Wat Thamfad has no relations with the rock below.

When finding amulets afraid of being cheated, when asked question get reprimanded, when comment get scolding, I am too difficult, asked about price then I might get reprimand again, I am too difficult!

We tried to translate the below as close as to the Chinese words to share that there is a new uprising concern in the amulet market. For new or not so new buyers they may have this on their head or going through a series of questions that might take them into from one circle to another. Let us break down above paragraph for you.

Afraid of being cheated? It is encourage to find reliable, credible sellers who have been in this field for 10 years or more. Credibility can be proven based on seller reviews, knowledge, expertise. True and long term sellers can assure you on authenticity of the amulet but never on the experience portion. Not even Thai Masters will give assurance on experience due to every one exposure, environment, people they meet and luck is different. For amulet wearing experience, it is mainly collected by those buyers who have tried and shared with their respective sellers.

Buy amulets only when there is trust and confidence form between buyer and seller.

Do not buy first then start worry about authentic or not, good or bad experience which will be too late by then!

Prefer to keep this post as clean as possible for readers so all other comments can be via PM.

Continued from...

Buyers have the rights to enquire on the price before commitment. They might not understand what is the exact market rate and need guidance for sellers to provide an indicative rate.

When seller choose a open price, he or she will get responses or quotes that might not be in line from the selling price in mind. It is a good practice for sellers to give a comfortable price range and let buyers make a suitable offer. If the price is right, both reach an agreement to deal. If not, both parties can disagree and thank each other politely for their time. There is no need to have hard feelings, grievances or scolding from any sides just because a transaction did not go through.

If the amulet is a competitive piece, seller can choose to discuss with buyer by private message to work on a negotiable price. We once had a client who just said expensive. In actual fact he wanted a better rate and we learnt of that after discussing with him further and we managed to strike a common agreement right after. So buyer can ask if price is negotiable or not. Respect the seller or buyer if the answer is a No.

Respect is a two way thing between the buyer and seller. Remember no body want to feel ashame or be shame by others!

This post is written to help to build a good culture between buying and selling environment.

Amulet Price & Perception
--------------------------------------------
Expensive or cheap is a perception form by an individual. The individual can be a seller thinking that the selling price is cheap while to a buyer it can be expensive. There is no right or wrong as each of them have their own point of view call perception.

Those who are new or not into this hobby will wonder why pay hundreds, thousands or even higher for metals, clay and powder amulets or statues. They might not understand how the word value applies to the amulet hobby concept and have their own set of belief. Some of the belief could be is it more expensive better? Is it cheaper no good? And yes the list of belief can go on and on as every one of us think differently.

For a start, we need to see this amulet hobby is based on demand and supply. Demand strong will result in weak supply. That lead to a long queue of people willingly pay more to own it and result in price surge.

Just an example only
A seller put a price tag of $1.6k on an amulet. Buyer feel the price is steep or expensive. Now if the seller acquired the supply at $1.5k at first and profit margin is $100. Now if another seller price it at $3k then the first seller going at $1.6k is consider cheaper now.

Not every thing from Thai is cheap and does not mean from SG is expensive. Due to the recent economy throughout the world, we start to notice SG might have a more competitive rate.

With that, we like to encourage to buy at a price rate that he or she is comfortable with. The good thing about this amulet hobby is there are always plenty of options out there.

Enjoy this hobby and take care!

What is E-Amulet seller?

E-Amulet Seller in this post refers to sellers who buy from Thai suppliers via website and do not or rarely go to temple runs. The traditional method for acquiring amulets for sellers is to travel from one temple to another. This practice is now declining due to rising cost and competition.

E sellers have lesser temple run photos to build up their portfolio as their focus will be on sourcing for more supplies to be shipped.

Traditional sellers will have 4 components that influence their amulets selling price. Their cost are flight, accommodation, time and effort involved. E sellers will have 3 components which are stocks available, courier cost and risk of parcel lost.

If we compared both of them by putting dollars and cents, the cost for traditional sellers will weigh much higher than E sellers. E sellers have the leverage of courier fees much lower than flight tickets, no need to pack amulets in luggage and just wait for the goods to be ship over.

E rely their trust, confidence and knowledge from Thai sellers and relate them to the end customers. That may also result incomplete and inaccurate information as they did not personally know the system. Just imagine if supplier give fakes to them, then they will end up providing fake amulets to end customers. In short, E sellers save money, time, effort but run a risk of given with fake goods. This mean they only able to examine the goods when they have been shipped over.

Fake goods refer to amulets made out from factories without any official blessings by the masters (original creator).

With that, our advice for buyers is always seek for a credible, reputable, positive reviews sellers before you get an authentic amulet. No one like buy an amulet and start worrying if it's a fake or real status.

Thank you.

Takruts can save a person life and protect them from danger. The man in picture is holding a takrut by LP Eaum.

Many Takruts out there have a protection effect so it is definitely one of the must have type of amulet in this culture!

This are the normal and common MINERALS which people out there also CALL them Leklai but never the same as original and real Leklai.

Let me share with you their common traits below:
They are easily mined
They are common and readily available
Found in large quantities or in kilos
Mono colour tone black & dull appearance
Colour always stay the same
Lower frequency & vibes
Do not have mountain devas blessing
Did not have any masters to bless
Sold in crystal shops or online merchants

This sharing is to build more awareness and let people understand the difference between the minerals versus real Leklai.
It is to address more on minerals being Called Leklai which might not be an exact or appropriate name compared to a real piece.

The intention to create this post is more on conveying information.

Good day to members who read here.

Thanks.

How Chris got to know about Leklai?

We get in touch with Leklai because we have met a real life business owner who first got in touch with Leklai 20 over years ago. This business owner started from food & beverages (F&B) industry but met many hinderances and obstacles. It was then friends recommended the business owner to approach the master specialise in Leklai to seek guidance and help and it changed the owner life completely.

The owner encountered improvement with the first Leklai amulet and eventually decided to change from selling food at stall to sell Buddha amulets in shop. This happened during the time when people read newspapers about thai amulets and rituals. There was no Facebook and chrome back then.

The owner sell Leklai to many customers since over 20 years ago. Most of them have received improvement in their lives and benefit from it over the years as they come back with repeated purchases and make plenty of donations too.

Those who believe in this or searching for this, we hope this information will help you to understand about this natural cave material better.

Thank you.

02 Why do we believe in Leklai?

The owner shared one of the real life example of the client. The client was an elderly who had problems walking normally. The elderly had seek for many medical help but there was no improvement despite going through medication, surgery and therapy. That was when the elderly chance upon about Leklai through newspaper. Elderly came to the owner for help and owner get the Leklai master to help with an ritual that involves using a Leklai Material mitmor to press on the top of head. The master knew that the elderly had some karmic debts and did 4 rituals in a year. After a year, the elderly was able to walk and lead a life as a normal person again.

Sharing
The world is big so frankly even a 21st century are not documented well enough for people to understand on amulets. Many of the times information found on social media would be taken as the truth, or by some hear said think it become a fact. Reader never doubt on reading the source, authenticity of information which was put up on forum, Facebook or even websites. This information will then take as a default knowledge and end up spreading around from one to another.

This sharing not only applies to amulets but many things we know in our lives. Take what you can Google as a guide but it should not be a end stop and limit one own learning cave. Time will tell who know and who don't.

End this short post with quote below as well. Thank you.
