The Sak Yant Ruesi Mor Yah is a healing Yant. In ancient times, a Mor Yah was a person skilled in traditional medicines, roots, minerals and herbs with healing properties.
The Ruesi were sages who spent much time in meditation, frequently as hermits. The Ruesi possessed psychic and supernatural powers which they used to cast spells, make love charms and to heal with the use of magical ingredients. In the West the Ruesi would probably be known as Wizards.
The design of the Ruesi Mor Yah sacred Buddhist tattoo has four distinct sections.
The upper part is known as a Unalome and represents a sacred or omniscient eye, a mark which is frequently seen on the forehead of images of the Lord Buddha.
The Middle, the circle, is the “Soon Jan Suri Yan”, representing the centre or core of the Sun and the Moon
The Lower crescent shape is the “Jan Kreung Sii Jan Trah” which represents the 4 phases of the moon.
At the bottom of the Ruesi Mor Yah Yant is a Mantra or Katha, written in an ancient Khmer script known as Khom:
The Ruesi Mor Yah is a Sak Yant for wellness and better health and is recommended for people who have been troubled throughout their lives with aches and pains, headaches, sickness and general ill health.
