Phra Groo: The Ancient Buddha Amulets in Thailand

 

Phra Groo is a name of ancient Buddha amulets in Thailand usually more than 100 years old. Phra Groo amulets were made by Thai guru monks in ancient time to give people as a protective talisman from dangers. The material of Phra Groo can be earth or metal substance.

Phra Groo amulets were important. The monks would keep the amulets well in a safe place for example in the underground chamber or under the pagoda and Buddha statue in order to prevent stealing.

When time passed, those amulets were found by a monk in the temple or sometimes by people working in the related site of amulets.


>> These are some popular Phra Groo amulets in Thailand:

1.    Phra Groo of Wat Bang Gra-ting, Ayutthaya Province

2.    Phra Groo of Wat Krachai, Ayutthaya Province

3.    Phra Groo of Wat Chanasongkram, Bangkok


>> Let's see in details of each one:


  
Marnvichai style 
 Samathi style


1.    Phra Groo amulets of Wat Bang Gra-ting, Ayutthaya Province were created around 2300 in Ayutthaya Era. Found under Buddha statue and pagoda in the temple.

2.    Phra Groo amulets of Wat Krachai, Ayutthaya Province were created in the reign of King Ekathotsarot of Ayutthaya. Made of baked clay. In art of 'Marvichai' and 'Samathi'. These ancient Buddha amulets have been reputed for great protection, career progression and wealth.
