Amulets and Talismans
In her article “Thai Buddhism and the Popularity of Amulets in Anthropological Perspective,” Moro argues that amulets in Thailand “primarily function as objects of actual power.” What do you think she means by this statement? Do you have any amulets or talismans that you carry with you or that you keep in your home? If so, what are they? If you do not, why not? Are talismans or amulets objects “of actual power” or do they serve as a “sign of pride” or a “personal reminder of faith?” What is the difference?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Choose one discussion post to respond to from a student that does have some sort of belief in talismans and amulets and another that does not.
