What is Tarkut?
Tarkut (Takrud) is a roll talisman sheet, sacred mantras, diagrams, pictures or magical words that were inscribed on a piece of metal ... like gold, silver and Tin (pronouced as Takua/ TaGua in Thai), palm leaf, wood, ivory, tiger skin, bone or other uncommon material.and people in Malaysia normally named it as "TangKai" (in Malay language).


Most of the Tarkut mainly consecrated for KongKraPan(mainly for protection purpose, take away all dangers suffer, protected the wearers from harm, accidents, black magic) or Metta (mainly for personal attractiveness, luck, wealth/business and protection) purpose.

After the tarkut has been written, it will be consecrated by the master himself thru special session. It is then normally rolled into a tube form with center empty, sometimes both end are sealed and rings are tied over it. Takrud is not that conspicuous, easy to carry and conceal. It is always hung over the neck, tied around the waist or kept in the pocket, and therefore favoured and worn by many top and senior army, police personnel and serious collector. Takrut made by famous monk are very rare and even harder to find than amulets.

Tarkut上经文,咒语,图腾 (Tarkut by Archan Deng,Wat Rai)


什么是Tarkut ?
Tarkut/Takrud("打固")是一种"符卷"(符管/符筒), 制作Tarkut的师傅多会亲自在素材上写上经文,咒语,图腾.常见用来制做Tarkut的素材像:金,银,锡(Takua),虎皮,棕榈叶,木材,象牙,骨头或其他少见的素材物质.在马来西亚这种"符卷"也称做"当盖"(马来语为"TangKai").Tarkut一般都用来増进人缘(metta) 或不能伤害 (KongKraPan)2个功用.

当制做Tarkut师傅在素材上写完经文后,都会经过一些特别的颂经加持的仪式而Tarkut才能算真正制作完成.

一般金属类或虎皮Tarkut都会卷成管状形,挂在脖子,绑在腰间,或放在口袋里.由于Takrud容易携带且容易收藏所,所以是军人,警察和收藏家的最爱.好的Takrut确实是非常罕见的,甚至会比佛牌更难寻获.
