Sak Yant – Paed Dan – Eight Sided Yant » Thai Guide To Thailand



The Sak Yant design Paed Dan or Eight Sided Yant is a sacred geometric design similar in meaning to the Paed Tidt Eight Direction Yant. The Paed Dan Yant gives protection to the bearer when traveling in every direction. Whereas the Paed Tidt Yant design contains eight representations of the Lord Buddha, The Paed Dan Yant has 2 sets of Eight Buddha symbols around the outer circumference. As with the Paed Tidt yant, the Paed Dan yant contains 8 Mantras or Kathas but a major difference is that while the Mantras on our Paed Tidt yant are written in the ancient Khmer script known as Khom, Phra Ajarn Gamtorn‘s (Sak Yant – Chiang Mai) design of the Paed Dan Eight Sided yant contains the same Mantras but written in Lanna script. Chiang Mai was at one time the capital of the Kingdom of Lanna in the Northern part of Thailand.

Sak Yant-Paed Dan

The Mantras or Kathas in the Paed Dan Yant actually serve a triple purpose. Firstly they protect you when traveling. Secondly, the Mantras may be used when paying homage to the Buddha of the day. In Thailand, there is a different Buddha image assigned to each day of the week with 2 on Wednesdays, one for the morning, one for the evening. Thirdly, the Mantras for the day may be recited by people born on that day of the week.
