No matter when, if Supawadee did not follow them to the market’s place, the sales were pretty meager. So her parents decided that their sales will be best if they had their daughter Supawadee with them on their sales trips, because they believed that the good sales has to do with the blessings and merits granted to her.
Supawalee had brought great fortune upon the family, that in a short time they became extremely wealthy merchants. Supawalee father was very well-liked because he was known to be a kind and generous person. He would always offered and asks people’s whom he met along his way if they are going to the same way and wished to hitch a ride along.

The legend of Supawadee spread to Thailand at the time Buddhism and the Hindu Brahmin faith were spreading into Siam as Thailand was then called. The Brahmins brought with them statues of Supawadee in the form of a young girl sitting on a cart. Thai people noticed that the Bhramins appeared to be more successful in business and quickly adopted Supawadee for their own, changing the name to Nang Kwak, and also changed the form of the statues into a lady sitting with her right hand raised and beckoning to customers with and her left hand holding a bag of gold or resting on her lap.

Supawadee received good teachings from this master, and thus became well-versed and knowledgeable in Dharma. Phra Sivali bestowed blessings of metta (loving kindness) upon her for her diligent efforts in the study and practise of Dharma. Remember the boon that is granted to her earlier by Phra Gasabatera. Now with Phra Sivali teaching, Supawadee luck and metta increases exponentially when she sets her heart in the practise of Dharma. As the result, Phra Sivali is endowed with exceptionally strong psychic powers. When he concentrated all his mental power and efforts to bestow the metta blessing upon Supawadee, the result was an especially strong effect of the blessing.
