Lucky Car Windows

When you buy a new car in Thailand, one of the first things you do is invite a Buddhist monk to bless the vehicle with mystical yan drawings. The monks typically create them on car ceilings, but in this taxi the sacred symbols and calligraphic text are on the windows. I wonder if the driver of this cab will ever be able to wash the glass. All it would take is a few spritzes of window cleaner and all of the good luck would be gone.
