Legend of Buddhist Alms Bowl:
The alms bowl (in Thai “Bat”) is a necessary tool for a Buddhist monk primarily used to collect food from laity in the morning alms round, and also a reminder of the renunciation from worldly life to complete monkhood.
After Prince Siddhartha attained the perseverance of becoming Buddha for 49 days, the two merchant brothers offered him food with pure faith. Although Buddha was welcome to get the offered food, he was concerned about the container for it. Buddha’s concern was heard by the four world guardian angels. So they all brought their bowls to Buddha to use as a container. When Buddha received those bowls, he made a wish to merge them into one. That was the beginning of the Buddhist alms bowl.
Buddhist alms bowl implies message from Buddha that whoever owns it will never find food scarcity and poverty.
Phiphek, Great Teacher of Astrology:
Phiphek (Vibhishana) is an interesting character in the legendary Indian epic Ramayana who is a younger brother of Thotsakan (Ravana), subsequently departing to Rama to fight against Thotsakan by using his excellent astrological ability granted by Lord Shiva. In Thailand, Phiphek is praised as the great teacher of astrology, said to thoroughly see the world, heaven and hell including the past and the future through his right eye.
Due to his incomparable astrology, the amulet with his image is believed to make good destiny.
