In Thailand and other parts of Asia, you will see many amulets on the dashboard of the vehicles.
One of the most popular amulets is the Luang Phor Thuad amulet.
What is the use of Luang Phor Thuad amulet?
Luang Phor Thuad was a Buddhist monk in Thailand a few hundred years ago. It was reported that he wanted to protect the people from untimely death due to accidents.
Even though that was a few hundred years ago, the legend of Luang Phor Thuad continued to fascinate people.
There are many reports and studies that reportedly show that people wearing Luang Phor Thuad amulets donot die from accidents.
With the advance of internet, we get to hear even more such urban legends. Some of these urban legends reportedly come from modern cities, such as Singapore, Guangzhou, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, in Asia, where people are highly educated, and not supposed to be superstitious.
I have read of some such experience, but I do not know how to verify the accuracy of the reports.
For example, a couple mentioned that on the first day that they wore Luang Phor Thuad amulets, their motorcycle was hit by a vehicle which had lost control, and spun across the lanes in the highway.
Their friends on another motorcycle died, but they did not even have a single broken bone. They had a few minor scratches.
They attributed their survival to the miracle of Luang Phor Thuad amulets which they wore on a necklace.
Asa result of such urban legends, the Thai temples consecrate Luang Phor Thuad amulets for the believers.
How true are those stories? I do not know. Even if I hear the stories from people who claim that they are sharing their life experience, I am too polite to ask for proof.
The only thing that matters is that I rather to be safe than sorry.
I have a Luang Phor Thuad amulet at home. I bring it out with me when I am travelling to a foreign country. I hope that I do not have a chance to test the effectiveness of such item, since the only way to test is to survive a nasty accident.
I certainly do not wish to get involved in a car crash, and survive intact, just to prove that Luang Phor Thuad amulet is good.
