Another buddy added that, perhaps Than Kong or someone brought back the amulets or crafted the amulets and requested it to be re-blessed by late Than Kong before distributing it to the devotees. Anyone ????
Others claimed that the crafted image is not Phra Yod Khun Pon but Buddha instead. My answer to them was ........
"Phra Yod Khun Pon is actually a Buddha figurine of preaching Abhidhamma in Tavatimsa Heaven. Sometimes, Yod Khun Pon also shows the posture of Great Buddha descending from Tavatimsa Heaven. That is why Phra Yod Khun Pon is depicted in 2 different postures - sitting and standing"
Hahahahaha, so Phra Yod Khun Pon is Buddha. Only depicted in different postures. The story about Phra Yod Khun Pon will be discussed in depth in the next blog posting. Wait ya.................
In Malay folklore, custom and belief, the word 'dugong' is normally referring to 'duyung' or 'ikan duyung' but there is ongoing discussion / argument regarding the DUGONG and DUYUNG. They claimed that DUGONG is not DUYUNG and vice versa. DUGONG and DUYUNG are two different ENTITIES.
As for me, I'm firmly believe that Dugong and Duyung are two different entities. Dugong's name perhaps derives from the Ikan Duyung @ Mermaid. Perhaps Ikan Duyung expect out there wanna share / clarify on this ?????
Personal experience of USING these Dugong's Bone Pidta Bhagawan Maha Ud & Phra Yod Khun Pon, these 2 pieces of Phra Kreung are endowed with a supeb power of Metta Endu and Maha Amnaj.
There is a specific khatas for these Pidta Bhagawan Maha Ud & Phra Yod Khun Pon. Before wearing, you have to recite the khata and TOUCH your Hard Palate ( lelangit ) by using your right hand thumb and apply it ( Saliva ) onto the amulet or apply it onto your eyebrows. The khata read as below;
Jit Tik Suk Ngam,
Jit Tik Suk ........,
Jit Tik Suk .........
( incomplete verses, please do not recite )
