Crystalake : Thai Buddhist Amulet
I have heard about its perceived strength, and this is usually one of the goals in a Thailand trip besides their fabulous shopping (Hangover 3!!!). It has to be chanted by the monk to be effective, and one just donates an amount to the temple. Till today, I seldom see cars with these amulets getting into accidents. Or it could be I am not aware of the rest. I heard that one has to treat it with respect, and should not put in trousers pocket as it is considered under the belt.
