A classic and original keris from the heydays of the legendary Javanese Majapahit empire. The characteristic model of this ancient keris is called ‘dapur Sajen’. Foreign research studies on this type of keris often use the general term ‘keris Majapahit’ for this kind of dapur. Yet one must take notice, that this term is rather inaccurate to describe the various shapes and sizes a keris Sajen can have. But for the sake of convenience, the name ‘keris Majapahit’, in fact, still occurs among European keris collectors who may use this particular term to refer to a specific kind of keris which is made during the tangguh Majapahit era (13th–15th century).
The blade of this keris Sajen has all the authenticity marks you may expect from an antique pusaka heirloom keris. It shows obvious signs of a centuries long aging process, and yet it is still in excellent condition after all these years. When looking at the iron used for the forging of the blade, its extraordinary quality and refined detail is evident, and speaks for itself.
This old and sacred keris Sajen comes with a warangka sheath, which is hand carved from teakwood. It is shaped in the model of a warangka Sandang Walikat, thereby making this precious pusaka item complete, and ready to use as a powerful tool for performing rituals and ceremonies.

Some of Indonesia’s most respected mystics are those coming from Banten. These masters are renown for their powerful skills in Islamic magic. It is, however, certainly not easy to find and approach the Islamic mystics from the area, for they are most of the time engaged in performing various intensive austerities. Moreover, on the rare occasion that they do go out and show their face in public, this will be mostly within the compounds of the local mosque.
Hence, it goes without saying, that these seclusive Muslim masters devote a great deal of their time and effort to their spiritual practice. The mysterious powers which are born naturally from extensive periods of spiritual practice, are applied by the Banten masters to consecrate various ritual tools and religious items. These mystical objects primarily serve to instill faith in the One and Only God. This, of course, brings both fellow spiritual practitioners and brothers in religion closer together and strengthens their conviction.
The black cloth features various gold colored patterns and symbols. However, when we examine the deeper meaning behind the mysterious Islamic geometric designs and the characteristic Arabic letterings which are used to empower this Muslim shawl, it soon becomes clear that the power of its magic spells should in no way be underestimated. For it contains some of the most essential principles and core teachings of the Quran.
Thus, it is believed, that wearing this sacred Muslim shawl will bring the faithful believer countless blessings of peace, love, physical health and financial wealth. Furthermore, when used for ritual prayer and meditation, one will soon begin to notice the advancement of one’s spiritual practice. The powerful magic spells will also offer protection from danger, such as attacks from malevolent spirits (‘djinn’) and black magic (‘guna-guna’).

Rae lek lai is a adamantine stone that can be found in caves in Southeast Asia. This sacred substance is a rare mixture between meteorite and iron. Legend has it, that lek lai is a fluid substance (note: lek lai means ‘flowing metal’ in Thai), and that it is inhabited by khodam spirit. Hence, only the most adept masters in meditation are able to obtain this mysterious flowing metal material from a holy cave, for they have to subdue the inhabiting khodam spirit first before they can actually cut the sacred lek lai from the cave.
This particular rae lek lai stone is obtained by the renown Buddhist monk Luang Por Ong of Vihara Deva Singha in Ubon Rachathani, Thailand. Southeast Asian Buddhists believe that Luang Por Ong has attained supernatural powers. And it is said, that by using his miraculous power according the traditional meditation method, Luang Por Ong successfully obtained the rae lek lai stone from a holy cave he passed by during his solitary wanderings through the dense forests in Laos.
One can use the rae lek lai stone for enhancing one’s spiritual practice, i.e. asking the khodam spirit for guidance in meditation. However, its magical qualities make the stone ideal for traditional healing purposes, too. For instance, one can also make holy water with the rae lek lai stone. This can be done by immersing the magical stone in water and leave it soaking in the bowl over night whilst it is charging the water with its esoteric powers. Then, the following day, one can take and use the holy water for various purposes depending on the personal needs of the individual.
As can be seen from the picture, this rare piece of rae lek lai is wrapped in a (transparent) plastic casing with openings on the front and the back of the stone, so that when one wears it on a necklace it touches the skin of one’s body. Hereby the mystical energies of the rae lek lai are transmitted onto the human skin. In this way, then, one will continuously receive the blessings from the inhabitant khodam spirit, who will bestow blessings of good health, increased luck, and offers protection from danger.
