 举世闻名之~拍颂德越拉康佛牌,(佛牌之王 ) 乃是妇孺皆知, 家喻户晓的实录! 系于150~170年前 (泰国第四世皇至第五世皇间之朝代 )由泰国圣僧 颂德拍普塔曾多碰玛朗诗 所制造诵经加持而发颁于泰国曼谷越拉康佛寺 。  尤其是佛教界的信徒朋友们, 更是梦寐以求的佛界至宝 。。。。。相信佛牌具有超凡法力,有超灵感 , 逢凶化吉, 护身~避险~除邪 , 人缘六合 , 财源不绝 , 避灾挡祸 ,预感先兆 ,不逝天日~ 等~等 ~ 的神奇功能和感应 。

由于拍颂德越拉康佛牌具有以上所陈述的神奇功效和许多所发生过的无数实际案例记录, 故举凡有传出某地某人拥有拍颂德越拉康佛牌, 必被人以高价求购之, 因此佛牌价格也跟着水涨船高, 以近年市场价值, 如保存完美的一级大模佛像, 其价值可达壹佰万美金以上, 令人咋舌。 而目前所知拥有拍颂德越拉康者, 都是些非富则贵的皇亲贵族, 高级将领, 达官商贾等。

又拍颂德越拉康佛牌的流传也已超过百年以上, 在早期没把佛牌用来交易, 只是自佛寺取得之后又辗转相赠予人结缘, 或收藏上的不当, 又或某些家庭和信仰上的变迁而流失和损毁等诸多因素, 数量因此相对的减少, 就因为如此几乎很难见到完美的拍颂德越拉康佛牌, 而市面上所流通的大都是些有损伤或经修复的佛牌,有些更不是圣僧 颂德菩塔曾多 所制造, 而是一些彷制膺品 !或是其他庙寺的佛牌,有心人用来张冠李戴 。 所谓 :智慧出 ~ 有大伪 。

正因为如此~拍颂德越拉康佛牌在泰国五方佛牌里是属年龄最轻, 但又能冠上五方佛之首 ~ (佛牌之王 ) 而被视为佛教界之稀世珍品, 绝非偶然的 !

拍颂德越拉康佛牌本身是可辨认出来的, 就是其模子的原有特点, 和土质的分别等等 ! 根据记载,圣僧 颂德多 采用来制造佛牌的材料有 ; 榖类,贝壳, 经粉, 圣土, 花果类, 花蜜, 香灰和酥油等等等 !

圣僧  颂德拍普塔曾多碰玛朗诗 生于17-04-1788  ~  卒于22-06-1872 , 佛历2331 ~ 佛历2415 享年 85 岁 。
