The words ‘Lek Lai’ can be translated to ‘Fluid or flowing Metal’ or ‘Steel Eel’. Lek Lai is also called ‘The Heaven metal’ and the ‘Black Jewel of Thailand’. It is believed that Lek Lai is indestructible and totally immortal. Old beliefs from Thailand say that Lek Lai is found in deep forests or mysterious caves and many people believe this.
Many people believe that Lek Lai is not an ordinary mineral but a type of fluid or liquid animal that can swim across mountains! Lek Lai is one of the most famous sacred substances in Thailand and it is believed that a spirit lives in Lek Lai and the spirit will release its magical powers in many different ways. Lek Lai will make its wearer invincible, it will protect its wearer from any danger and it will destroy any evil spirits, enemies and dangerous animals Even today there are very few people who can describe the properties of Lek Lai correctly, Lek Lai is a true special gift from nature, it cannot be altered or changed, it cannot be improved in an artificial way and it is very powerful. Many healers believe that Lek Lai increases their healing powers and when using a Lek Lai amulet it speeds up all healing. A Lek Lai amulet should be worn around the neck and it should be treated with respect and honoured. If it is not cared for or respected it will simply vanish. Even nowadays there are Lek Lai masters who will insert small pieces of Lek Lai under the skin of a disciple for their protection!
Lek Lai Nam Rong has been mixed with other sacred ingredients and made into amulets for many centuries as well as being worn in its natural state.
Searching for Lek Lai: According to ancient texts to find Lek Lai you have to search in very quiet and desolate places for very clean caves that do not have the droppings of any animals. The temperature in the cave should be very cool and refreshing. If you believe that an area in the cave contains Lek Lai then you should shoot a gun at that area, if the area you are shooting at does contain Lek Lai then no bullets will fire from your gun! When you have found the area that contains Lek Lai before cutting the Lek Lai out of the cave you have to pray to the spirit of the cave and the spirit of the mountain or jungle or the god that protests that area. Once you have found the Lek Lai a Sai Sin cotton string should be tied around the Lek Lai before it is cut out of the cave. By doing this you will be protected.
