天珠的传说:

3000 多年前,青藏高原的藏族先民正经历着一场空前的大瘟疫。瘟疫横扫高原,病痛折磨着众生。文 殊菩萨的前身曼殊室利佛正好经过喜马拉雅山脉上空,眼见这世间疾苦不甚悲悯,于是向凡间撒下 “天华”。

“天华”降到青藏高原的各个角落,百姓们将它捡起, 带在身边。奇迹发生了,凡是捡到“天华” 的人,病痛一天天地消除。最终,依靠这神奇的天降石,青藏高原恢复了一派生机。

Phra Ruang

Sukhothai Province  

ancient image 

Phra Ruang, the name of the dynasty of the monarchs that ruled the Sukhothai Kingdom and a name of hero in Thai legends, has evolved into a generic name for all ancient Sukhothai monarchs or rulers since 14th century. The word “Ruang” means prosperous or glorious. It is believed that Phra Ruang was a monarch who had accomplished a large amount of merit in his previous life, his words were sacred and wise, and with his great knowledge of arts and science, he managed to send out junks to trade with China, being married to the Emperor’s daughter and bringing back Chinese potters to produce ceramics in Sukhothai.

In the circle of votive tablet collectors, the name “Phra Ruang” has been used to call two different groups of votive tablets.

The first group depicts a standing Buddha image in the attitude of granting blessings. The well-known collections include, for example, the repository of Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat in Sukhothai, the repository of Maha Thera cave in Lop Buri and the repository of Nong Chaeng in Suphanburi. The Buddha image in this group shows a characteristic of the Khmer-influenced Bayon style.

The second group depicts sitting Buddha image. The characteristics and iconographic details are variable. Each is named according to the site it has been found. The Buddha style is characteristic of the Lop Buri and Sukhothai arts. The sitting Buddha in the style of the Lop Buri art is usually depicted in royal attire and, sometimes, seated inside a flame-like aureola, displaying both the attitude of meditation and subduing Mara while the one in the Sukhothai style is usually found displaying the attitude of subduing Mara and is not highly ornamented. The Buddha characteristics are the same as the votive tablets of the Sukhothai art that have been generally found.

It is assumed that the term “Phra Ruang” as given to the group of the standing Buddha image may derive from “Phra Ruang Rojanarit”, the standing Buddha image of the Sukhothai style that King Rama VI had it transferred from Si Satchanalai, restored and enshrined in the Vihan, north of the Phra Prathom Chedi in Nakhon Prathom. The reason is that the votive tablet collectors viewed that the Buddha style of both images shared similar characteristics.
