Nak Mor Phut Thak Yakh,
Nak Makh Phak Thak,
Chakh Phak Kha Sakh
Chakh Phak Kha Sakh is a common khata chanted by many Teachers. It may be chanted for many purposes, may it be for luck or protection. It all depends on what you wish and how firm and strong your mind on such purpose. Chanted by many but little does people knows what does it represents.
This khata came about when one day, Ven. Sariputra seek upon Buddha concerning future generations’ faith on the Dharma. Ven. Sariputra ask the Buddha what if the future generations cannot grasp the Traibidok. Buddha then taught Ven. Sariputra the essence of The Dharma on noble living, called Hua Jai Korani.
Chakh - ChaJaThutYaNangBangSakGang. It means; • Don’t mix with unwholesome people. • Don’t mix with people with ill-wills or destructive thoughts. • Don’t mix with lazy people. We are habitual creatures. Like it or not, we usually conform to the enviroment that we live in…subconciously. Habits die hard, therefore Buddha advised us to abstain from people stated above.
Phak - BhaYaSadhuSaMaGaTang. It means, • Mix with wholesome people. • Associate with intelligent people. • Associate with people whom are productive in their lives with positive thoughts. • Mix with wise people. • Be with people whom cares about the welfares of others sincerely. Only when associating with such people mentioned above, can one think out of the box in their daily life. Surround ourselves with good people above will enrich our lives.
Kha - KaRaPunYaMaHoRatThang. It means, do good day and night. Do good doesn’t mean donating money all the times. Taking care of our parent, the Arahants in our home, carrying out our duties as children is a very good deed. Taking care well of our spouse and our children is another good example. Or we can start from; Thinking good, then we will do good. Doing good will produce good results. With good results, we will feel good. When we feel good, we will automatically think good. It is a cycle. Sometimes the best deed is to start doing good to the people around us.
Sakh -SaRaNitChaMaNicchaThang. It means we should contemplate on Impermanence at all times. Because of the fact that we held strongly to a certain idea, people, things or events, we became attached to it. And when circumstances changed we cannot let go or choose not to let go, suffering arises. We shall share about Dhu Sa Ni Ma, a very popular katha later. Generally, if you wear good prak/amulet and practise noble living with ChaBhaKaSa, you would experience good living.
