The feature tongkat was named Mai Thaw Mahathera. The official name of Tok Raja’s tongkat. The word Mahathera was adopted from the Tok Raja’s Buddhist name;
PHRA VICARANAYANAMUNI, KHRON PUNNASUVANNA MAHATHERA.
The name of the building, on top of the main entrance to the Tok Raja’s main hall .....
This Mai Thaw Mahathera was made around year 2002/2003 ( BE. 2546/47 ). The creation were associated with chief monk 71st birthday. The number of this Mai Thaw Mahathera created was unknown. It was a superb new creation of small and tiny tongkat. By donating ( Thambun )RM100, devotees will get this superb Mai Thaw Mahathera. The specific and special khatas paper was given along to the devotees.
Due to its popularity, the Mai Thaw Mahathera was out of stock and then the fake n imitation of this Mai Thaw Mahathera were produced by wat committees without this chief monk knowledge and the number of this imitated Mai Thaw Mahathera was huge and almost out of control. The materials and ingredients used were beyond devotees expectation ! Later on the imitate tongkat prices flung from Thambun of RM 100 to RM 200 per piece.

There’s a friend of mine….came straight away from Penang just to own this superb Mai Thaw Mahathera. He went to the wat and collected two pieces of this Mai Thaw Mahathera ( one phim each ). He put these 2 tongkat on his car dashboard while browsing around Tumpat to visit other wats. Reached my home, he was hailing and yelling non stop upon reaching my doorstep. Yelled and shouted because the one of phra pidta attached to the tongkat was separated from the tongkat due to the high temperature while parking his car when visited other wats.I had shared with him some info about the tongkat. In his disbelieved, he disassembled both the top and bottom of the tongkat and shocked to see the materials inserted !
If u were one of the unlucky guy who already rent out this imitate Mai Thaw Mahathera, stop hailing…. yelling ….and shouting…... BEAR IN MIND that, wat chief monk nothing to do with this imitate version of Mai Thaw Mahathera, he doesn’t know and absolute innocent ! Jus consider that your RM 200 or RM 300 were a kind hearted thambun to the wat. Shadu ! Shadu !
Why we need to be more sensitive and selective about the tongkat….
FYI, the real great sacred tongkat; Can be used as…….
• Superb tool for Phor Mor / Achan
- To dispel / discard ghost and evil forces.
- To cure exorcism.
- To make nambun ( holy water ).
• Tool to protect the wearer / owner.
- General safety from bad luck and unlucky star
- Avoiding mishap / fatal occurrences
- Possess of Amnaj power
• Safe guard your house from;
- Break-in / thief
- Fire / danger
- Evil spirit – evil forces
In a nutshell, the real sacred tongkat power is absolute and no suitable words to describe its. As my grandpa said………
“Absolute 108 purposes and you don’t know the power of the tongkat, unless you own it”.
FYI, imitate tongkat …….
• Cannot protect the wearer.
• No absolute powers as the real sacred tongkat
• It’s just a piece of wood that means nothing to the wearer / owner
or more specifically, a piece of decorative wood !
“ Beautiful to see, nice to hold.once you used, you will know ! “
Shadu ! Shadu !
sabbe satta sukhita hontuk !
