Kata Chants for Praying to Shiva (Kata Bucha Pra Isworn)

Kata Incantations, Psalms and Prayers to Lord Shiva (Pra Isworn), and Shiva related Thai Buddhist Amulets.

The Lord Shiva is a Brahman Deity who Thai Buddhists also Revere, for indeed, Thai Buddhism and Hinduism are inextricably interwoven in the Thai Buddhist Cosmological Pantheon. The Lord Buddha never Denied the Existence of Such Godly Entities, maintaining only that the worship of Deities is not a direct cause of Ultimate Enlightenment or Liberation from Samsaric Existence, but in fact, even mentioned the Brahma Deity who he had met, and also has said that one of the reasons of the downfall of a Nation or Empire or Culture, was often due to neglecting to pay respects and offerings to the Local Devas.

Apart from Thai People Praying to Lord Shiva, the Thai Ruesi Sages Revere Lord Shiva, as the Root Guru and Highest of all Ruesi Sages. Lord Shiva is the Ruesi of all Ruesi, and is the reason for which the Ruesi like to wear a Tiger Skin in his honor.
