Buddha Magic Ezine - Issue 1 Out Issue 2 in progress

My bi-monthly e-zine "Buddha Magic" is now out on sale as a pdf e-zine
Issue 1 has over 70 pages of articles about famous monks, temples, a heavy influence on Thai Sacred amulets, Buddhist art and sculpture, Thai Buddhist legends and Animist practices, Necromancy, Sak yant tattoos, and lots more fascinating topics.

The Ezine is an ideal reading material for amulet collectors and lovers. The articles on amulets will be informative, have depth of penetration into the backgroound information, and be detailed enough for readers with academic interests, as well as useful for people seeking to expand their knowledge about Thai amulets. Not only the famous amulets and masters will be investigated and revealed, but also many great ancient and/or sacred amulets from great masters who have simply not been given any interest by those who steer the market and the publicity of amulets and their makers. Sometimes the reason a great ajarn doesnt get in the magazines or get talked about in legendary stories (by the steerers of the market, using forums and the like who wish to start rumors off in the 'Chinese whispers' way), is sometimes as simple as the fact that the people marketing amulets in the popular scene might not live near enough or have a decent connection to the ajarn to be able to obtain amulets easily enough. So the small villages and outer provinces will have many great ajarn who don't get in the news or spoken about on forums etc, but believe me, they are there.
