phra pidta protection buddha
The Phra Pidta amulet is an image of a Buddha closing its eyes
(Phra = Buddha Pid = Close Ta = eye).


It is mainly an amulet believed to "hide its wearer from danger",
buts its powers can vary a lot depending on the material that compose it
and also on its shapeand specific blessing / magic.

Since the magic of the Phra Pidta is designed to "hide" its wearer, it is not advisable
that anyone who need to be seen wear one. For example a seller,
or someone who go for a job interview,
or an actor really should avoid to wear a Phra Pidta when going to work.

The Phra Pidta amulet is one of the most famous and popular amulets in Thailand
and is also very popular in Malaysia, but it became avalaible
only around 1850and there are no "antique" Phra Pidta to be found.

3 wise monkey
Maybe the idea behind this "Buddha hiding its eyes" come originaly from the "3 wise monkey".

One of my customers told me that :

"Yes, Phra Pidta really hide one from danger, each time i wear it,
the people i dont want to see seem not to notice me (like if i was invisible),
or if i go to some place
where they usualy are...they are not there this day !
It is a very useful and gentle magic.

Here are a few examples of the many variations of the Phra Pidta amulets.

Some Phra Pidta amulets can have more than two harms,
here are examples with four and six harms,
but some amulets can show Phra Pidta with eight or more,
hiding various parts of his body (eyes, ears, private parts...).

Such multi-harms Phra Pidta are called Phra Pidta Mahahut and are invulnerability amulets.
