Thai Naga Tattoos

Naga is a mythical creature which is generally regarded as a protector in Thai Buddhism as you may see them in front of sacred buildings in temples, as well as through Buddhist ceremonies, art, mythologies and folklores.

Thai people in the northeast of Thailand, especially in those areas that sit alongside Mekong river, hold the Naga in such high regard since they believe they have been having long and deep connection with the Naga, and been performing ceremonies related to the Naga for very long time.

Where did the Naga belief come from?

When and where did the Naga belief come from haven’t been 100% proved yet until these days but the root of this belief might have started since very long time back.

 

History has shown that "snake" had been well respected, and been part of ancient beliefs, rituals, and folklores throughout the world. Back then, a large scale of population still believed in superstition, meanwhile snake was often seen as mysterious creature and some groups of people also believed that it brought agriculturally abundance. As a result, snake had been held in high regard and been part of ancient rituals since.

 

In prehistoric Thailand, having snake as part of rituals also had been practiced in this region. Ban Chiang which was a prehistoric agricultural settlement, is considered the most important prehistoric settlement in Southeast Asia which is now located close to Mekong river, in Udon Thani province, in Thailand. People in Ban Chiang relied very much on Mekong river for living. However, duo to unstable raining, people might have often faced natural disasters which were either flood or drought. Back then people still much believed in holy spirit and superstition. So when they faced indescribable disasters, the solution might have been performing a ritual related to Mekong river which greatly supported their living. And in these rituals, snake had been paid high respect and been part of the rituals as we discovered snake painting on the vessels in Ban Chiang settlement.

Then from the prehistoric period to pre Thailand at some point, people that lived along side the Mekong river, might have gradually altered their belief for snake, from a well-respected figure to the holy spirit or their ancestors reborn who were there to protect the next generations.

 

Later on, big change had happed which was emerging of Buddhism and Hinduism from India. And from believing in nature spirit, people then embraced the new religions more. But instead of totally converting themselves to the new religions, people adapted their old beliefs to go along with the new one, and from snake which was believed as holy spirit, now transformed into Naga which was now held as demigod (a serpent with decorated head crest).

 

Now in Thailand, people in the northeast especially in 8 provinces that’s close to Mekong river still much believe in the Naga and continue performing rituals and ceremonies related to them until today.
