There are many steps involved, and many skills to be mastered by would-be masters of the arcane arts. One of the first skills the aspiring spiritual adept must learn however, is the art of creating and consecrating various kinds of sacred powder, a cornerstone of their rituals. The process begins with moulding various grounded materials (white clay filler) into a stick of chalk, which is then used to inscribe letters on a special type of board. This board is known as Kradan Chai

or Kradan Kru
. It made from the trunk of a papaya tree. The trunk is soaked in water until it begins to rot. The softened wood is spread out, covered in Rak
, and then left to dry. The resulting panel is polished smooth, and then framed with additional pieces of wood. This board be made by hand, and the entire process must be personally undertaken by the aspiring sorcerer.

Before any esoteric studies can commence however, a Krop Kru

(Thai sacred ceremony for the indoctrination of pupils) must be conducted, in which the pupil must prepare the appropriate offerings, and undergo the correct method of worship, as required by his master. This ceremony is a show of respect and blessing from teachers, the lineage teachers as well as the guardian deities, and serves to sanctify their forthcoming pursuit of knowledge. After completing the Krop Kru ceremony, the student may commence his tutelage.

 

The art of making sacred powders, is the first skill he is tasked with mastering. The crafting of these powders is closely associated with the practice of meditation, as it requires focus and intense fine-motor skills. 3 aspects of the aspiring adept are honed in the process;the physical, when he uses his hands to inscribe the sacred characters, speech; through the incessant recitation and invocation of spells during the writing process, and the mind; as intense focus is required to ensure that no mistakes are made, and that the protocols are followed to the tee. Any missteps could render the entire process futile, and the resulting powder, powerless.

There are 5 broad categories of powder, Pattamung, Ittijay, Maharach, Puttakoon, and Trinisinghay. They stem from the same raw material, and the same set of powder goes through the process of 5 different consecrations consecutively to derive Pattamung, Ittijay, Maharach, Puttakoon, and Trinisinghay.

Creating the chalk
The chalk used in the inscriptions, is made up of the following ingredients:

  1.  Din Jed Pong
    (soil from seven salt licks)
  2. Din Jed Tah
    (soil from seven harbours, or watersides)
  3. Din Sao Lak Muang Jed Lak
    (soil from seven City pillars)
  4. Kee Tao Sai Tien
    (the ashes from wick of a candle used to worship the Buddha)
  5. Dok Kalong
    (Kalong flower) Snowy Orchid, Bauhinia acuminata L.
  6. Yod SaWad
    (the topmost shoots of the Sawad tree) Caesalpinia bonduc
  7. Yod RakSorn
    (the topmost shoots of Rak Sorn tree) Giant Indian Milkweed / Crown Flower
  8. Kee Klai SayMah
    (scurf from the boundary marker of a temple)
  9. Kee Klai Pratoo Wang
    (scurf from Palace gate)
  10. Kee Klai Sow Taloong ChangPeuak
    (scurf from a post to which a White Elephant is tied)
  11. Rajapruek
    (Cassia fistula)
  12. ChaiyaPleuk
    (Java Cassia)
  13. Plu Ruam Jai
    (betel leaf)
  14. Plu Sorng Hang
    (betel leaf with twin lobes in the same leaf)
  15. GraJehTaNow
    , otherwise known as Thanaka
  16. Namman Jed Ros
    (seven flavors of oil)
  17. Din Sor Phong
    (white clay filler)

 

Mix all the material, and grind thoroughly. The resulting powder is mixed with a little water, before being moulded into chalk. The components of the chalk may vary from school to school.

Chalks for creating Phong Wiset

 

The powder must be made within the confines of a holy place, such as a temple. Before commencing the ritual, novices should always make offerings to the Buddha as tribute, and then anoint their bodies with holy water. The spirit of their teacher, dead or alive, should be invoked, to amplify the sanctity of the ceremony. The first class of powder usually attempted by novices, is Phong Pattamung

.

1. Phong Pattamung

Pattamung is the introductory scripture in the study of Thai magic, akin to a elementary school education. The ancient Pattamung scripture is suspected to have existed since the Ayutthaya

period, as it was described in detail in the literature of the era. The skills involved in making Pattamung powder have also made appearances in Thai literature surrounding Khun Chang Khun Paen
, such as descriptions of him learning to make the powder at the age of 15.

 

The Pattamung scripture describes the legend of the world’s creation, summarised below.

In the beginning, there was a great void, a stark emptiness staring through time and space. And then there was water. Endless deluges of it, flowing into the emptiness of existence. The water began to dry up, and land began to appear. Thao Sahumbodee Phrom

gazed down from the heavens, and saw 5 lotus flowers emerging from the depths, each labeled the characters “Na, Mo, Put, Ta, and Ya”
(Refer to our article on Na Mo Put Ta Ya). This symbolism drives him to a state of fervent reverence, and he christens the aeon ‘Phattharakap’
, professing that 5 Buddhas would appear to bestow enlightenment.

 

With a deft sweep of the hand, he sowed the grass that would bind the land, across the 4 corners of this burgeoning domain. The water continued to recede, and from it, emerged fragrant verdant fields.
Drawn down from the heavens by the wafting aroma of creation, the Brahma deities descended to feast upon the soil and its bounty, chaining themselves to this mortal realm in the process, never to return. They settled into this new frontier, becoming the ancestors of modern-day humans. (For further reading, refer to the Aggañña Sutta of Theravada Buddhism)

The patron deity of sacred powders, as a result, is Thao Sahumbodee Phrom, the first deity to appear during the inception of our universe. The Katha to invoke his blessings is as follows:

ongkarn phinthu nathung, oop pun nung, phromma sahumbodee namung, aata kap pae, su aa kha to, panja pathummung thi sa wa, na mo phut tha ya, wan ta nung, sit thi kit jung, sitthi kam mung, sitthi ka ri ya ta tha ka to, sitthi la pho nirun tarung, sitthi tae cho cha, yo nit jung, suppha kammung, prasit thi mae, suppha sitthi phawantumae

 

The spell for crafting Phong Pattamung begins with “Na Phin Thu”

, which is inscribed using the chalk. The resulting inscription is swept aside, and the resulting powder is stored. The process is repeated for “Na Mo Put Ta Ya”, “Ma – A – U”
and all other verses prescribed in the text’s entire sequence, ending with Nippan
. Attaining full competence in this art, is a prerequisite for all other forms of Wicha.

It has a quadrilateral shape, most of them is rectangular, but there are some trapezoidal shapes, which refer to the land of the Noble Truths. There is an arc within a rectangle frame, meaning the ignorance that covers the world. The base and monk are in a triangular form representing Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha.

 

After the Phong Pattamung powder is completed, fragrance may be added through the addition of Kritsana

(Agarwood), Kralampak
(Euphorbia antiquorum L.), Khon Dok
(rotten log), Phimsen
(borneol), Chamod
(Cynogale bennettii), which is incorporated in small, gradual quantities. Pattamung powder focuses on enhancing Kongkrapan Chatree
, shelter from harm, become invisible, disappearing, dispelling black magic and impending harm, and Metta Mahaniyom
.

 

The most important step in using Pattamung for Kongkrapan Chatree is the addition of bile from a black chicken, boa, turtle, wild cow or tiger, dew, or the water from a melting hailstone. The consecrated powder is used to tattoo the characters “Na Pattamung Phin Thu”

in the middle of the forehead. In ancient times, this was believed to render an individual invulnerable to stabs and cuts.

 

2. Phong Ittijay

 

Ittijay

also goes by numerous phonetically-similar names, such as Itthajay
, or Athijay
. It is created from the scraps left behind from Phong Pattamung production. The remaining nubbins of chalk are mixed together, and re-formed into full pieces. These new chalks are then used to inscribe characters, in a manner prescribed by texts detailing the protocols for crafting Ittijay. It begins with a Wai Kru
, or offering to the teacher, usually consisting of some permutation of 5 flowers, 5 incense sticks, 5 candles, a boar’s head, Kraya Buad
(food containing no fish or meat), and money. The requisite Katha and incantations for worships offering are recited before the process begins.

 

There are many formulas for Ittijay, but the key is to follow the ”itha iti iti atsa uthung ahung akkhung ahung ahung ithung amma atsa”

formula. Successfully following ”ii tha jay ta so than hung khan ha hi tha ma sa”
, results in Ittijay powder.

 

The resulting Phong Ittijay may be mixed into perfume or lip balm, or put in food meant for the target of the spell. The powder should be mixed with nipple blood in order to become exceptionally potent. Some texts describe the romantic enchantments resulting from the application as exceedingly potent, breakable only in death. A minute waft of this powder onto himself renders the owner incredibly fascinating to the object of their affections. It is considered the ultimate form of supernatural charm. The Katha for the application of Phong Ittijay is:

Ji jay ru ni, na cha li ti, na ma pha tha, phuk jit phuk jai, jong long, ram phueng khlueng khlao nung fao pak thang, nung yiem na tang, khruang khram tha win, ying gin ying long, chai gin chai ngong, phit sa wad long lai, na fueng, hua jai, phut tha, ao e nan ma, mao som soo, ya yu duay gan jon tua dtai

 

Phong Ittijay may also be mixed with herbs, and used to treat certain diseases. It is also a popular ingredient in amulets, as it is imbued with Metta Mahasaneh

, Klaew Klad
, and Kongkrapan Chatree
. The intrinsic power of the powder itself however, is mainly focused on charm.

 

3. Phong Maharach

The scripture ‘Maharach’ describes the protocol for the creation of Maharach powder. It is an invaluable book for cultivating Metta, useful for both genders. To make Maharach, Ittijay powder is molded into chalk and is then consecrated in a similar inscribe-erase-bless fashion, in accordance with the procedures for Maharach.

The most popular method for creating Maharach powder, involves the “setting” of 5 names; Chao

, Nang
, Or
, Sapphechana
, and Phahuchana
. Each of these serves as shorthand for a full katha. While inscribing these characters, the full katha have to be recited. After each syllable is written, it is erased and collected, until all 5 are completed. The chalk is then used to inscribe “Na Mo Put Ta Ya”, which is erased, and kept, before “Ma – A – U” are inscribed, erased and kept. This is followed by the syllable U-Ong-Karn
;

This is the core of the Maharach scripture, a magical character often used as the emblem of the King in days gone by.

The resulting powder is believed to help your charm to flourish, in addition to supporting you in all other aspects of your life. Through enhancing your charm, inadvertently influences all other pursuits in a positive manner. It is especially efficacious for people engaging in trade and industry, as well as for people looking to expand their social circle, as the judicious application will magically cause people to regard you with increased mercy, empathy, and familiarity.

4. Phong Puttakoon

 

Puttakoon is molded from the remaining chalk leftover from Maharach production. In much the same manner as earlier examples, it is consecrated by the Puttakoon formula by inscribing characters, erasing them, and storing the resulting powder. To make this powder, the spell ii ti pi so pha kha wa

should be inscribed in its entirety, ending with pa kha wa ti
, before the first round of erasing and storing is done. Subsequent steps involves similar treatment of Na Mo Put Ta Ya, Ma-A-U, ii sa wa su
, so tha ya
and finally Ong Phra
, all the while accompanied by Sek
(chanting, reciting with concentration) of Katha Phutthanimit
. The remaining chalk is then used to inscribe descriptions of the life and virtues of the Buddha until it is entirely expended.
Ong Phra

Phong Puttakoon, by virtue of its association with the Lord Buddha, is considered highly potent. It offers comprehensive protection from everything, ranging from calamity to misfortune to black magic. It has especially powerful Klaew Klad, safety, and offers enhanced Metta Mahaniyom.

5. Phong Trinisinghay

 

As with all earlier classes of powder, Trinisinghay is molded from the scraps remaining from Puttakoon creation. The requisite formula for Trinisinghay is used. This particular powder, however, is closely associated with angels.

In its inscription, however, auspicious numbers relating to specific Katha are invoked. This form of talisman is known as Yant Trinisinghay

. The numbers that appear in the Yant Trinisinghay sequence are divided into 4 sets of 3 numbers each. The final result of each set is divisible by 15; 375, 465, 195, and 285. The composition and sequence of each number used, correlate to a specific efficacy in life, as specified by the texts. Through careful adherence to these instructions, Trinisinghay powder will be created.

 

It is believed that Trinisinghay powder protects users from weapons, injury, and the supernatural. It is also used to shield homes from calamity, including protecting the occupants from diseases and misfortune. It repels all bad things through overwhelming power.

Although the steps used in the creation of each powder are cast in stone, each school may choose to focus on their own specific forms. Although all the powders possess their own unique qualities, their inherent spiritual power means that in a pinch, they may be pressed into service for the enhancement of marginally similar aspects of life, spanning the gamut of their owner’s personal needs.
