By closing its eyes, it is not exposed to the evil surrounding it. Neither does one care about evil and the misdeeds it inspires. Therefore, one does not indulge in rumours, profanity, wrongdoing, or any type of crime. We remain safe from infamous acts, and are thus protected from all sorts of apprehensions and misfortunes as a result.
Phra Pidta is known for bringing good fortune. It is also known to protect from evil.
