Sak Yant – Mae Tap – Commander-in-Chief » Thai Guide To Thailand

The Sak Yant design Mae Tap is one of the great universal Sak Yant designs. Mae Tap means Commander-in-Chief and this gives us the first clue as to the meanings behind this Powerful and Sacred Sak Yant Buddhist Tattoo design. Mae Tap is sometimes referred to as the Guardian Yant. The benefits which the Sak Yant Mae Tap can bestow include the following:

Maeta ma hah niyom – This will bestow great popularity on the wearer. Benefits include charm, good luck, luck in love and the ability to find true love.

Oopatae: This will ensure that in whatever enterprise or business activities the wearer is involved in they will have the ability to do the work correctly and ensures that everything will run smoothly.

Klaeoklad: Most people at some time will have an accident. This benefit ensures that the wearer will not suffer serious injury.

Ma hah Amnat: This will give the wearer great power, authority and control over other people.

Ma hah Taba Daecha: This will give self confidence, self-assuredness as well as courage and the mental strength to cope with adversity.

The Mantra or Katha included in the Mae Tap design is written in Khom, the ancient Khmer language.

Gan ha nay ha
A sang wi su loh pu sa pu pa ma a oo

We would like to thank Phra Ajarn Tanawiiro (Sak Yant Chiang Mai) for allowing us to photograph his work and for his help in translation of the Mantra.

    you have to find someone who can take you to a city called Nakon Pathom (1 hour from Bangkok) in the temple Wat Ban Phra. this is THE temple for sak yant! but bring someone who speak thai, not so many tourist there!

    This is the temple where all the people who have sak make some meeting once a year. But you can go there every normal day (beware of buddha days, there are a lot).
    The tattoo cost 200 baht, a box of cigarettes and a flower. u can buy it at the entrance.
    I did it in september 2011 and recommend it!
