100 sheets of consecrated gold leaf from the venerable Luang Phi Kaweerat (Phra Khru Samut Kaweerat), abbot of Wat Satthayalai and the Holistic meditation Centre, Ban Had Nang Rum, Tambon Plutaluang, Amphoer Sattahip, Changwat Chonburi, Thailand.
The gold leaf has a size of approx. 2.5 x 2.5 cm, every leaf is inserted between two dividing sheets. This size is made especially for the temple. The gold comes from a small family manufacture where it is still "hammered" in traditional manner by hand (see photos).
The gold content amounts to information from the manufacturer to 98 – 100%.
With the acquisition of the gold leaf you acquire at the same time Tambun (religious salaries) because we offer the gold leaf as a mediator in the name of and by order of the venerable Luang Phi Kaweerat. The acquisition is to be looked as Dhana (donation) to the Wat Satthayalai.
The gold leaf was consecrated several times by the venerable Luang Phi Kaweerat, for the last time in the 8/25/2553 (2010) in Wat Katayutaram, Kiel, whose abbot he was up to the 8/31/2010.
Because no successor was found for Wat Katayutaram, this was closed in the 8/31/2010. The venerable Luang Phi Kaweerat who is the namesake and, so to speak, the "godfather" of the oldest daughter of our manager asked her husband, to take the holy objects from Wat Katayutaram and to lend (sell) them by order for the financing of the construction of Wat Satthayalai in Satthahip.
Strictly speaking one cannot buy Thai amulets, Buddha-statues and other holy objects from a Thai temple, one can “rent” them only for an indefinite time. Besides, the renting period can also continue about endlessly many generations. Nevertheless, the German right does not know this kind of renting, so that in our offers always a purchase price must be quoted and not a rental price (Bucha).
Luang Phi Kaweerat was active for more than 10 years in Germany as a monk, among other things as the abbot of Wat Luang Pho Sothon Germany in Kraihtal and of Wat Katanyutaram in Kiel. First he was on the move as a wanderings monk in the whole of Germany and the European foreign countries. Then later he founded Wat Luang Pho Sothon Germany and Wat Katanyutaram.
Now because of his experience which he has gained during his work, particularly with German and Dutch Thai Buddhists he builds up in Sattahip the Wat Satthayalai with meditation centre. There western Buddhists will also be able to ordain to the monk (Buat Phra) or to the „Buddhist nun“ Chi Pram (Buat Pram) without knowledge of the Thai writing and language in the future.
Luang Phi Kaweerat ordained in 1985 in the Wat Thamfad, Tambon Kao Noi, Amphoer Thamuang, Changwat Kanchanaburi, Thailand, to the monk. His teacher was the venerable Luang Pho Samlit, in his lifetime abbot and builder of Wat Thamfad, who belonged to the greatest monks of the province of Kanchanaburi. Then later he also instructed his friend, the venerable Luang Pho Watchara, the today's abbot of Wat Thamfad whom he also brought first sometimes to Germany.
