Lucky Thai Buddhist Amulets - the power to stop bullets !

We’ve written about the Thai amulet business before on the Buddha’s Face blog and it is an area where age old traditions and superstitions combine with millennial old Buddhism to create a typically Thai amalgam. In fact Thai soldiers who went to fight in the Iraq War had special amulets created that were thought to have powers to ward off bullets - I wonder if Superman woar one ?

In the following You tube video is a great news report with English sub titles about this unusual and fascinating area of Thai-Buddhist culture.
