Tao Wessuwan- Thailand Amulet - Wealth

Tao Wessuwan, Lord of Demons and Malevolent Spirits

Who is Tao Wessuwan?

Tao Wessuwan is the leader of all ghosts and demons in Thai culture. He carries a staff called "grabong" in Thai, which symbolizes his power over evil spirits. It is said to have the ability to be thrown into the air and smash the heads of a thousand ghosts with a single blow. Wessuwan is said to have the power to completely destroy ghosts if he wishes, but due to his good nature he only damages their heads to teach them a lesson. The image of Thao Wessuwan can often be seen printed on cloth above the entrance to houses in Thailand to keep thieves and ghosts out.

In the Buddhist and Brahmanical cosmological pantheon, the four cardinal points of the compass have a deity assigned to each direction. The god who rules the north is called Tao Wessuwan or "Taw Guwern", or Lord Taw Waes Suwann.

In Buddhist tales and fables, he is known by his Pali name Waes Suwann or Waisarawan.

In the Thai "Ramayana" and in the original Brahmanical epic "Ramayana" (the word "Ramayana" meaning "Rama's journey"), Lord Guberan is referred to as Taw Guberan (or Taw Waes Suwann).

Apart from that, this god has other names: Tanesworn, Waisarawan, Yanksaraja, Raaksentorn, Ratanakan and Aitawita (son of Itawata).

The Tao Wessuwan is not a very common amulet to find in amulet shops, but they are only produced by a few temples. Perhaps the most famous is Wat Sutat, in Bangkok. Tao Wessuwan amulets are generally rare and can be expensive. Statues of this deity are almost always placed at the gates of temple enclaves and are considered a Dharma protector.

The image of Tao Wessuwan is often found imprinted on "Pha Yant" fabrics, along with spells and images of protection.

This Pha Yant is normally obtained during the "Swod Pan Ghosts or Demons" ceremony, which normally takes place after the rainy season, when the monks can once again undertake their wanderings. Ghosts or demons are summoned during this ceremony, as well as Tao Wessuwan who protects against all evils, malevolent beings, thieves, and purifies those who have passed karma."

Jambhala is a god of wealth

In Tibet, he is known as the deity of Tibetan Buddhism, he is called Vaiśravaṇa or Jambhala.

Jambhala is a god of wealth in Tibetan Buddhism. He is portrayed as portly and covered in jewels. Vaiśravaṇa is also known as the king of the north, and as one of the worldly Dharma protectors. The fruit helps distinguish it as an icon of Kubera depictions. His mount is a snow lion, and his right foot is usually suspended and supported by a lotus surmounted by a conch.

Tibetan Buddhists view the Jambhala sense of wealth as providing the freedom through prosperity to focus on the path or spirituality rather than the materiality and temporality of that wealth.
