Yant Hah Taew ID NO 1
The Hah Taew Yant encircles all aspects of an individual’s life and, as a result is the most popular. Angelina Jolie’s first of many Yants (this being tattooed on her shoulder) was the Hah Taew.
This Yant represents 5 yants of magical spells. Yants are also called chants, or Kathas. These chants are usually repeated many times to invoke a distinct mental state. Each Yant is recited 108 times before an individual is able to enter into a high meditation level. All Yants are performed uniquely by way of magical spells, described below.
Each Yant is comprised of 5 lines, each representing a specific area of an individual’s life:
- Row 1 is used to prevent punishment that is unjust. It encourages life to lean in one’s favor when an area is uncertain. It also helps to protect and clean out unwanted spirits.
- Row 2 protects against bad fortune and horoscope constellations.
- Row 3 prevents the effects of black magic and other curses that are put on you.
- Row 4 encourages success, good luck and fortune in your life and future ambitions.

Yant Ta Kai Paetch :- Diamond Armor Yant also known as Diamond Back 5 line.
Yant Ta Kai Paetch, also known as diamond armor yant is used for protection against the perils of life, from enemies to other sources of danger. The diamond armor helps to reverse any moves your enemies may make against you. Five line yants are believed to be more powerful when lines connect each individual yant in a diamond-shaped pattern. Unalomes are always incorporated in the opening and closing of every diamond armor yant.
Unalome (Ascending spirals)
A Unalome consistes of a circle that exemplifies the life one lives, including the numerous distractions we face on a daily basis in our earthly lives. If we allow ourselves to be affected by and controlled by these things, we will spin in circles. We need to get rid of these things to avoid this never-ending spiral. The more you work to get rid of these things, the better your life will be. The spiral is symbolic of the brain and the thoughts and decisions that are made within it. The spiral circles around the scalp until it reaches the top center portion of it. The line that points straight upward symbolizes a straight path to true enlightenment.
These unalomes are used at the opening and closing of many yants as well as for decoration in many designs.
