Brief HistoryPreviously the Pra kring amulet amulet was known as or called “Click” and it is assumed that this name originated from the sound that the amulet made when shaken, because of the round seed that it contained in the base. Later it was popularly called “Kring”, although it is not certain when this new term was first used.
The Phra Kring amulet can be made from a number of different materials including metal, powder with pollen, baked clay with powder, tuberous plant with powder, powder with palm leaves and minerals, There have been many different beliefs about the Phra Kring amulet and why it was created. Historically it is believed that it was created for the purpose of making merit.
The Thai name “Phra Kring” literally means “ringing Buddha”. The word “Kring”, is pronounced similarly to the English “ring”, and both are approximations of the sound of a ringing bell.With regards to the meaning of the word “Kring”, The Patriarch Pae (Wat Suthat) had often stated that “Kring” came from “Kue Kusalo” meaning ‘Nirvana’. He had also said that the round seed contained within the image meant non-self and that everything in the world was non-self just as the round seed of the Kring.
This idea was similar to the ideas of Ajarn Sathien Pothinantha who talked about the “Kring in the amulet” offering two conclusions;Firstly that the Kring is a symbol of the Buddha’s condition whose qualification is Anathi, non-self does not appear at the beginning nor at the end, so it turns to be a round seed.
Secondly, the common belief that hearing the ring from the Phra Kring amulet can bring good luck and fortune, possibly the very reason for its unique design. The degree of good luck would depend on the number of times that the Kring was shaken.
Essentially the Phra Kring amulet and the round seed contained inside differentiated it from other amulets in that they were specifically designed to bring about mindfulness to creators and possessors, to make them think of the gratitude of the Buddha, the Buddha’s kindness including the ultimate truth that is the highest level of Buddhism.
Another objective is to make them think of a number of important characteristics of the Buddha, impermanence, suffering, and non-self. The round seed inside the amulet emphasizes “non-self” as mentioned above.
