Nang Kwak is the Thai goddess of wealth. She is extremely popular in Thailand. This goddess brings money and prosperity.

Her right hand seems to be waving. This is beckoning motion is believed to attract wealth and customers.

Not all will choose a statue. In some shops and homes, you may find they prefer to have a picture of this goddess of wealth hanging on the wall.

Nang Kwak Legend
The story of how this goddess came to be is not set in stone. Some say she is the incarnation of the old Thai rice goddess called Mae Phosop. Rice has always been connected to wealth. As an incarnation of the rice goddess, Nang Kwak takes the wealth attraction business to a higher level.

Another popular legend is that Nang Kwak once was a young woman named Supawadee.

She lived with her parents in a small town in Northern India about the time Buddhism started to gain followers.

Her parents were merchants and not very successful. They struggled hard to keep their business above ground and barely made enough to support their family.

Supawadee would often accompany her father on his business trips. It was on one of these trips she found herself listening to a sermon on Buddhism.

The words of the sermon seemed to make perfect sense and she immediately converted to Buddhism.

Supawadee became a very devoted Buddhist. Gasaba Thaera had for a long time noticed the sincerity of Supawadee and was very much impressed. As it happened Gasaba Thaere was an Arahant, one who had been pronounced worthy, a perfect person.

According to Buddhism, he had special powers. Gasaba Thaere used his powers to bless Supawadee. The blessing she received would be connected to good fortune.

As a result, her family became very wealthy. Rumors of Supawadee’s connection to prosperity brought people from near and far to her home. All were eager to be blessed by this fortunate woman.

Supawadee was to become the spirit or goddess of wealth known as Nang Kwak.

ABOUT THAI AMULETS: A Thai Buddha amulet (Thai: พระเครื่อง; RTGS: phrakhrueang), often referred to academically as "votive tablet", is a kind of Thai Buddhist blessed item. It is used to raise funds to help the temple produce the amulets. Worshippers can obtain an amulet or Thai Buddhist monk blessing by simply donating money or offering oil to the temple. After the donation, the monk will give them an amulet as a gift. The amulets no longer simply are considered a "gift", but a tool to help enhance luck in different aspects of life. People use amulets to improve their marriage, wealth, health, love, and relationships.

It is a Thai tradition to place amulets under a stupa or other temple structure when it is built. When the structure collapses, many amulets may be found. Some can be over a century old.

Almost every Thai Buddhist has at least one Thai amulet. It is common to see young or elderly people wear one or many amulets around the neck in order to get closer to the Buddha.

Amulets are made using the Buddha image, an image of a famous monk, or even an image of the monks who made the amulets. Amulets vary in size, shape, and materials such as plaster, bone, wood, or metal. They may include ash from incense or old temple structures or hair from a famous monk to add protective power to the amulets.[3] After the amulets are made, the maker will then ask the monks who live in temples or monks from other temples to join together and practice will, chant, pray and bless the amulets. This process may take from a week to more than three years.
