Some of the what you are about to read is not documented in any reference books and is generally only known to monks who have studied and practiced this ancient art for decades….so please consider this privileged information:
 

Introduction
 

Leklai is probably one of the most famous sacred substances in Thailand.
 

It is believed that this particular sacred substance can release magic powers in a variety of ways but particularly in helping worshippers from danger and expelling dangerous enemies or animals.
 

Even today, there are not many people who can actually describe the properties of this sacred substance in much detail. But this has not prevented many powerful and rich businessmen obtaining amulets that supposedly contain leklai.
 

 

LEK-LAI (A Magical Metal Amulet)_01

     

The fact that we cannot see or cannot prove the existence of something does not mean it is not real.

Supernatural phenomena such as traces of a naga slithering down some places in the north-eastern provinces or photographs or video tapes that accidentally recorded an image of something like a ghost are what people doubt but cannot utterly deny.
 

In Thailand there is a substance that cannot be explained by the laws of science. Yet, some people have great faith in this amulet's protective power. It is leklai, which literally means fluid metal.
 

Moreover, it has been reported on many occasions that individuals have lost their lives in the quest to source this grail of substances, many in deep inaccessible caves hidden in dense jungles.

   

Some have even suggested that this material is an invention or creation of an over enthusiastic imagination

How strange it may sound that this material is so rare that there do not appear to be any consistent reports of its appearance or properties. Some say a rare alloy of metals, others say a kind of Thai plant, and others say mercurial in appearance.
 

One of the more credible theories about Leklai is that it is a kind of substance only obtainable from the air around us. But why you may ask, have I seen images of a mercurial liquid, which is probably the most popular interpretation.
 

The reason suggested is that the guru monk has sufficient powers to accumulate the gaseous leklai and condense the material into a liquid solid.
 

In contrast many senior monks have said  nothing can be added to leklai, it is a creation of mother nature alone,  it is neither reinforced by metal or by spiritiual power.
 

Old Thai beliefs say that Leklai was a mercurial solid found in deep forests or the mysterious caves, this theory is still supported by some countries such as China and Tibet, who strongly believe in the magic of Leklai, and you will often hear it called “The Heaven Metal”.
 

According to the Thai dictionary of the Royal Institute, lek-lai is a type of metal said to melt at candle temperature. It is also regarded as a rare magical metal that forms naturally and possesses biological properties.

The legend of lek-lai is described in ancient sacred books as follows. In the time as old as the Atlantis continent, there was an ascetic named Kalaikot, who attained a high state of serenity via meditation. This ascetic caused an element which could become either solid or liquid and could disintegrate or cohere to gather on the wall of the cave where he was inhabiting. Another ascetic, who reached the same level of meditation and whose name was Kassapa did the same thing.

 

Historically there are reports of the ancient Khmer having created amulets made from this substance which was brought to
them by a Tibetan monk.
 

The Malaysians also believe in Leklai, and they called it  “Buesi-Sue-lae” which has the same meaning as the Thai word Leklai. (moving metal)

The eternal belief in the powerful and mysterious leklai has grown throughout Asia for the last 1,000 years.
