What we have here is a Phra Kring amulet, made by monks and blessed by monks over a 3 month period. The item is made by pressing clay, mixed with flora (dried herbs), pollen, and oils, into a mold based on the Phra Kring image. It makes a little strange bell sound when you shake it. People wear the Phra Kring for health and protection.

The Phra Kring is a statuette in the image of a meditating Buddha, which is only made in Thailand. The Phra Kring is essentially a Mahayana-style Buddha image, despite the fact that Thailand adheres to Theravada Buddhism. The beliefs about the powers of the Phra Kring are that the Phra Kring is the image of Pra Pai Sachaya Kuru (พระไภษัชยคุรุ Bhaisajyaguru, 藥師佛 Yàoshīfó, in Chinese, or in Japanese 'Yakushi'). Pra Pai Sachaya Kuru ('guru') is the medicine, Buddha. The image is normally in the posture of sitting and holding an alms bowl or guava, gourd or a vajra. This was a fully enlightened Buddha, who achieved purity of body and mind, and who was a great teacher of human beings, who has the miracle that he who hears his name in passing or see his image, will be healed, and live a long healthy and prosperous life with wealthy standing. The Phra Kring Buddha or Bhaisajyaguru is one of seven Bhaisajayagurus and is said to have two Bodhisattvas under him Pra Suriya Bprapaa Potisat (Suriya Bhrapa Bodhisattva), and the Pra Jantra Bprapaa Potisat (Chandra Bhrapa Bodhisattva). Of all the other Buddhist countries that revere it, only Thailand is responsible for its making. The Phra Kring in most cases (except in the odd example where Muan Sarn powders prevent the sound), will have a rattling bead inside it. The reason for this rattle sound, made by a sacred bead of Chanuan Muan Sarn or other relics, is that it is the name of the medicine Buddha resounding, as you pass along your way, healing and blessing you with safety, health, prosperity, metta for auspicious friendly loving kindness. Some Phra Kring however do not make a sound that is audible to humans, but still have a piece of Chanuan within, which emits the name of the medicine Buddha silently, only audible on the spiritual plane.
Do not wear Buddhist amulets under the waist. For most amulets, wear it on the neck or above the waist. This tradition is to show respect to the Buddha. Takrut (without a monk or Buddhist image) can put inside your pants pocket.
Do not put a Buddhist amulet in a bedroom if you expect to engage in sex there.
Pray before and after wearing an amulets.
Remove amulets when bathing.
It is not necessary to wear an odd number (1,3,5) of amulets around the neck for balance and symmetry; it is not required.
Vandana: Namo tassa bhagavato arahato samma sambuddhassa: This is a prayer to honor to the blessed one, the exalted one, the fully enlightened one. People usually say this prayer three times before and after wearing on the amulet. Saying this prayer, means showing absolute respect to the Buddha. This prayer can also be said before and after meditation.
There is a special mantra or prayer in Pāli for praying to amulets to beseech blessings, called Kata Ārātanā Pra Krueang, which goes like this: Puttang Ārātanānang Tammang Ārātanānang Sangkang Ārātanānang (make a wish or prayer, and continue with, Puttang Bprasittimē Tammang Bprasittimē Sangkang Bprasittimē.
ABOUT THAI AMULETS: A Thai Buddha amulet (Thai: พระเครื่อง; RTGS: phrakhrueang), often referred to academically as "votive tablet", is a kind of Thai Buddhist blessed item. It is used to raise funds to help the temple producing the amulets. Worshippers can obtain an amulet or Thai Buddhist monk blessing by simply donating money or offering oil to the temple. After the donation, the monk will give them an amulet as a gift. The amulets no longer simply are considered a "gift", but a tool to help enhance luck in different aspects of life. People use amulets to improve their marriage, wealth, health, love and relationships.
It is a Thai tradition to place amulets under a stupa or other temple structure when it is built. When the structure collapses, many amulets may be found. Some can be over a century old.
Almost every Thai Buddhist has at least one Thai amulet. It is common to see young or elderly people wear one or many amulets around the neck in order to get closer to the Buddha.
Amulets are made using the Buddha image, an image of a famous monk, or even an image of the monks who made the amulets. Amulets vary in size, shape, and materials such as plaster, bone, wood, or metal. They may include ash from incense or old temple structures, or hair from a famous monk to add protective power to the amulets. After the amulets are made, the maker will then ask the monks who live in temples or monks from other temples join together and practice will, chant, pray and bless the amulets. This process may take from a week to more than three years.

#1) Haunted Dolls are for Adult Collectors, not children. Please do not buy anything haunted for children. I will not sell to those under the age of 18
#2) Spirits are just like people. When you purchase a haunted doll from me, it is an adoption. Give it some time, and lots of love, and you will get back exactly what you put into the relationship. Your experience will depend on many factors, I suggest researching haunted dolls and the phenomena surrounding them to be sure you are ready for the commitment. I can not and will not guarantee that your doll will "perform" for you.
#3) I am not responsible for any paranormal activity you may experience when you invite a spirit into your home. Please research prior to adoption.
I can hold dolls, jewelry, or anything for up to 6 weeks on Reserve. I will have you put the item in your cart and I will change the first photo to a sign that says "Reserved" and I will put your name and the date on the title. If you need more time, or chance your mind, just email me. The most important factor, to me, is that the spirit and caregiver make the proper connection. If you are not feeling it, please UNRESERVE and give that spirit a chance to find the right connection.
No layaways or payment arrangements. We no longer do lay-away or payment arrangements as of 3/1/2017. However, we do reserve dolls for up to 6 weeks or longer, and we can also do custom orders
