The rear face shows the presence of all the classic features and muan sarn ingredients of a true Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm of Somdej Dto, with Kraap Kru on the front face revealing it to have been placed within the larger Chedi Stupa of the 2500 BE Opening. The Kru Gao (Chedi Yai) amulets are more highly preferred than the Kru Hmai (small Chedis) amulets, which were found later within the nine smaller Chedi Stupas surrounding the main central Stupa.
Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm is one of the classic Pra Somdej amulets available and is along with Pra Somdej Wat Gaes Chaiyo perhaps the next in line to the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang amulet as far as popularity, beauty, sacredness of Puttapisek ceremony and price range.
Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm Kru Pra Chedi Yai (Large Chedi Kru amulets)
The Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm amulets classified as a Kru Pra Chedi Yai, have 9 different Pim Song, and were made in the period between 2411 and 2413 BE. Not all of the Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm were placed in the Kru, it took many years to create and press them and many would be in a receptacle in the Kuti and would be handed out by him during the time he created and empowered them.
This explains the absence of Kraap Kru in some exhibits, as well as being purely logical and the most probable chain of events to have occurred. The Thaan Saem is one of the 5 Pim Song of Pra Somdej, which exist in both the Kru Wat Rakang and Kru Bang Khun Prohm amulets. Pra Somdej Wat Rakang have Five major category of Pim Song, whereas the Pra Somdej has four more Pim Song, making it nine major Pim in all.
These 9 Pim are; Pim Yai, Pim Sangkati, Pim Song Chedi, Pim Prok Po, Pim Gaes Bua Dtum, Pim Thaan Koo, Pim Sen Dai, Pim Ok Krut.
History records that, in the year of the Dragon 2411 BE, Samian Tra Duang Tongoses made restoration work Wat Bang Khun Prohm Nai (Wat Mai Amataros), and renewed the temple along with the building of a new Chedi Stupa, in order to place Pra Somdej amulets, which Samian Tra Duang invited Jao Prakhun Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Toh) Prohmrangsri, of Wat Rakang Kositaram to place there, as well as to empower. The amulets were made in the Pra Somdej Traditional formula of 84,000 pieces (same as the number of suttas of the Pra Tammakhant).
After Somdej Dto had blessed and empowered them, Samian Tra Duang was allowed to place then in the Kru hiding place within the Chedi Stupa behind the Upopsadha shrine room. During the time from then, the Chedi was sometimes accessed and amulets were removed from time to time, and even some thieves dug holes and stole some.
This became so bothersome that the Kru had to be broken open officially on 24th November in 2500 BE.
The opening took all day, until at approximately 8 pm, the very last Pra Somdej amulets were removed. Many of them were very thickly coated with ‘Kraap Kru’ (residues and growths). The amulets were allowed to be rented out by devotees, until the year 2509. The total amount of money raised from the rental of these amulets amounted to about 4 Million Thai Baht.
This money was used to construct the new Uposadha shrineroom, and the renovate and restore the old Chedi Stupa, as well as making a bronze statue of Tan Jao Prakhun Somdej Toh, which was completed and celebrated in 2509 at the same time as celebrating the building of the Putta Sima (temple walls), and the burial of the ‘Look Nimit’ (all Uposadha shrine rooms must have a Look Nimit ball buried under it).
Micro Chipped Certificate of 3rd Prize Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm Pim Sen Daay Kru Gao
The depletion of this series led to the creation of yet another immortal legend of the Pra Somdej Niche in 2509, namely the Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm 09 Edition, which is in itself one of the most highly collected amulets of serious collectors and devotees, and also carry relatively elevated prices.
This Classic edition of Somdej Bang Khun Prohm, are considered to have extremely powerful Buddha magic in them due to the richness of sacred powders and powerful blessings contained within from great master Somdej Dto.
Khiaw Gae Suea Jarn Mer Sacred Carved Tiger Amulet made from tooth, with hand inscription by the Great Luang Por Parn of Wat Klong Dan Previously ‘Wat Bang Hia’) – Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Amnaj Talismanic Amulet of Master Class Status.
The amulet has a beautiful ochre Patina on the surface from aging through the many decades of time that have passed, and thorugh contact with the skin of devotees, and is a most pristine example of a suea Luang Por Parn.
Suea Gae Luang Por Parn Wat Bang Hia
Luang Por Parn is arguably the number one Master Gaeji Ajarn of all Living Memory when it comes to Wicha Khiaw Suea. Many Masters hold a high status for carved Khiaw Suea, but nobody in living memory has attained the same status as Luang Por Parn, except his famous apprentice, Luang Por Nok, of Wat Sangkasi.
Khiaw Suea are full of Maha Amnaj, Kong Grapan Chadtri and Metta Mahaniyom-Maha Sanaeh Magick, and possess Anti Black Magick Forces in their very nature. An excellent Status Increase Talisman to Impose your Superiority and Status and Rank over others, and to protect you from deadly Dangers and Weaponry, as well as to Increase Seductive Charm and Chances of Promotion.
The temple of Wat Kong Dan (Wat Bang Hia), is of course a World famous Historical Temple of Monumental Status in the Amulet Scene for the fact that this was the temple of Luang Por Parn, Master Wicha holder of making famous Tiger Tooth and Carved Tiger amulets, whose amulets are now of the ‘Maha Sethee’ Master Class, highly favored and collected by the wealthy collector, which has caused these amulets to become amongst the most expensive of their genre.
The tiger teeth of Luang Por Parn are perhaps the most sought after and rare of all Tiger Tooth amulets even more so than those of his predecessor Luang Por Ruean (also of Wat Bang Hia), especially those which are of the ‘Suea Kroeng’ tiger (large male tiger). Some circles of collectors may charge as much as 50,000$ for one, as can be seen in the below news article from the newspaper ‘Kom Chad Leuk’.
However, we wish to dispose of such exaggerated prices, which are indeed seen to be perpetuated, and certain marketplaces do continue to declare these prices, and get them from rich millionaires. But we do not pertain to such practices of price manipulation at such exaggerated levels, and maintain a realistic approach based on our ability to discover and obtain such items of authenticity at reasonable affordable prices.
Luang Por Parn – Wat bang Hia (Wat bang Bor)
Such prices are manipulated and highly exaggerated, despite their continued success in maintaining the myth of mega millionaire price tags. A tiger tooth from Luang Por Parn is indeed expensive, as are all tiger teeth from olden days masters, but not as expensive as such circles of aficionados like to insinuate.
Many people think that Luang Por Parn of Wat Klong Dan is a different Master to the Luang Por Parn of Wat bang Hia, but this is a Myth, that is perpetuated by people’s ignorance of the fact, that wat bang Hia, in Bang Bor, Samut Prakarn Province, is a different temple to the temple of Wat Klong Dan. The truth is however, that the word ‘Hia’ which means both ‘monitor lizard’ (which is the true reason for the temple being named Wat Bang Hia, due to a lot of Monitor Lizards being around in those days), also is a swear word, meaning ‘very bad person’. Because the name of the temple of Wat Bang Hia was seen as Inauspicous to some people’s ears, it was changed to ‘Wat Klong Dan’
This is why much confusion has occurred with those who have not studied the Dtamra of Luang Por Parn and related Masters of this Temple, may believe there are two Masters famous for Tiger Teeth both named Luang Por Parn, tow Masters famous for tiger teeth named Luang Por Say, for they are both sometimes stated to be of ‘Wat Bang Hia, and sometimes as coming from ‘Wat Klong Dan’
Luang Por Parn was one of the Great Master Guru Monks of his Era (2368 – 2543 BE), and the originator of the Wicha for Tiger Amulet empowerment of this Lineage, using the Wicha of Wat Bang Hia.
Size; 4 Cm Long x 1.5 Cm thick
Wat Bang Hia is of course a World famous Historical Temple of Monumental Status in the Amulet Scene for the fact that this was the temple of Luang Por Parn, Master Wicha holder of making famous Tiger Tooth and Carved Tiger amulets, whose amulets are now of the ‘Maha Sethee’ Millionaire master Class.
It was the Great Luang Por Parn who was the Mentor and Teacher in Wicha to Luang Por Nok of Wat Sangkasi, who is a Classic Olden Days Master of Legendary Status in his own right, and whose Tiger Teeth Talismans also carry immense Serm Baramee and Maha Amnaj Power.
Luang Por Nok practiced the Mastery of Wicha Saiyasart Buddha Sastra Occult magic under Luang Por Parn himself. He fast became Luang Por’s most elite apprentice for his fast wittedness, ease of learning and good memory.
Because of this he recieved the teachings and attained Mastery of the methods of Luang Por Parn in a very short space of time, and was soon considered to have a level of Mastery and Understanding that Thai people call ‘Dtaek Chan’, which means to Master a subject to the poin where one excels above all other practitioners.
Carved Tooth Tiger Amulet for Protection LP Parn
Luang Por Nok often followed Luang Por Parn out into the forest when he would wander on Tudong Practice. This is where Luang Por Parn revealed and taught the Master Wicha of the ‘Khiaw Suea’ Tiger tooth amulet. The Wicha of Luang Por Nok became so powerful, because he was receiving Wicha from perhaps the greatest Master in Living Memory for Tiger Tooth Talismans.
One can say that Khiaw Suea from Luang Por Parn and from his Apprentice, the Great Luang Por Nok, can be considered the top preferred Masters for this kind of Talismanic Charm. They are both immensely rare, and most often completely beyond availability. We pride ourself in our diligent quest to search far and wide to find the remaining exhibits around the country, to present them for your admiration and study, and to place some available to those who wish to possess one.
Luckily we are patient and vigilant, and try our best to seek both beautiful, sacred and authentic example that are also affordable. It can not happen very often, for good things are hard to find, and far and few between. The Powers of the Tiger Tooth are reputably said to possess Kong Grapan Chadtri, Klaew Klaad, and Maha Amnaj (commanding power and influence), as well as powerful Maha Sanaeh attraction power and Metta Mahaniyom Mercy Charm.
The hand inscription is inimitably inscribed in the handwriting of Luang Por Say, and hence easily recognizable for its style of Agkhara lettering, noticeabe for its ‘lightning flash’ like Agkhara inscription, which is ubiquitously present with tiger teeth of Luang Por Parn.
The tooth can be encased if desired in waterproof casing for attachment as a pendant. One could say that this exhibit is an extremely pristine and beautiful example of Khiaw Suea Kroeng, with most beautiful features, and highly visible inscription, revealing the authentic evidence of the hand of a preferred artisan of the great master Luang Por Parn

The yellow patina which has developed through aging on the surface of the tooth, brings character and excellence to the amulet, revealing its evident age and distinguished status, adding to the Magick of Maha Amnaj Commanding Power, Dominion and Influence in its visual effect, which is Imposing in Itself at First Glimpse.

One of the more famous types of ‘Krueang Rang’ talismanic amulets of the Great Luang Por Tob (Wat Chon Daen), is the Look Om Chan Hmak Gesa, Sacred Areca-Betel Nut powder ball with Monks hairs, which was most commonly distributed with a cover wrapped in cord with a cord pendant hoop. Most would be wrapped with plain coloured cord, but some special ones were wrapped in tricoloured cords (red white and blue for the Thai Flag), which is known as ‘Trairong’, or ‘Tong Chart’ (meaning ‘National Flag’).
Look Om Chan Hmak Thak Chueak Tong Chart Luang Por Tob
The olden days folk of Pechaburn are said to have preferred the following three types of amulets of Luang Por Tob above all others;
Look Om Chan Hmak
See Pheung Metta Balm
This is because the folk of olden days noticed the effects of these amulets almost immediately after wearing them, and the effects of the amulet were highly noticeable above any doubt of coincidence.
Look Om Chan Hmak Luang Por Tob (Early Era)
It is said that whoever manages to possess all three of these sacred items, is blessed with extremely powerful blessings and will experience immensely luck and good fortunes.
The Look Om Chan Hmak of Luang Por Tob has many legends of miraculous events with devotees who used the Look Om, such as the story of the great Gangster Suea Kam Mee, who was a feared gunman of Hlom Sak District, who was shot with M16 by the police, and the bullets did not pierce his skin or kill him.
When Suea Kam Mee became old and gray, eventually his Look Om Luang Por Tob fell off (the cord ring broke), and he stopped wearing it. Within a few days of not wearing the Look Om he was shot again by enemies, and killed. Suea kam Mee’s grandson one day decided to open the cord wrapping of Suea Kam Mee’s Look Om to see what was inside, and found it to be made of Chan Hmak Betel Areca Nut with Monks hairs mixed in, with a Takrut inserted within it.
Luang Por Tob made Look Om over many years, so the Look Om of Luang Por Tob can be found from various eras. he made them in various ways with various appearances, such as bare powder balls rolled with the hand, others wrapped with cords, and even sometimes molded into the shape of Buddha amulets.
Luang Por Tob would mix his Chan Hmak chewed betel-areca with Nam Mont Holy Prayer Water, and add some monk hairs, and roll the paste up into a ball, and wrap it with various kinds of woven cords, depending on which kind of cords were available to him at the time. He would allow his devotees to help him to bind the Look Om with the cords, resulting in some people wrapping them left-handed, and others wrapping them right handed fashion. Some devotees would wrap a single weave, others double or triple weave, resulting in the Look Om of Luang Por Tob having a a large variation of appearances as far as the cord wrapping is concerned.
Sacred Betel Areca Nut Wishing Ball Luang Por Tob
But the actual Loom Om when finished had the rule that there had to be a pendant hoop attached, and fully enclosed with cord, with the weave having the appearance of a honeycomb pattern
In the mid and later era of his trajectory, Luang Por Tob began to use See Pheung to coat the Look Om with before wrapping them (and those which were not wrapped too). Some Look Om can be seen visibly to have some See Pheung leaks on the surface of the Look Om, or the cord wrap, which would indicate that the Look Om came from the mid or later era, not the early era where Luang Por did not yet use See Pheung to coat the Look Om with.
Luang Por Tob Wat Chang Phueak (Wat Chon Daen)
The See Pheung he would use would have to be previously empowered before using to coat the Look Om. A Ceremony was made for the See Pheung to be boiled with constant incantations. Luang Por Tob’s apprentices (Luang Por Tong, Pra Giang and Samanera Nid), would assist to collect the residues of the chewed betal-areca and roll them into Look Om, or even into the shape of Buddha amulets.
Luang Por Tob would only perform such a ceremony to make these amulets once every few years, because it was difficult to collect enough Muan Sarn to be able to perform the ceremony properly, and this took a long time to gather enough chewed betel-areca, and the ingredients for the See Pheung
When he would perform these ceremonies, some devotees would sit and wait for them to finish and ask for look om fresh from the ceremony (still not dry), and others would come later to ask for one after they were dried out.
Luang Por Tob of Wat Chon Daen
The Look Om were always amongst the most popular amulets with his devotees, because they were small and easy to carry/wear, and because of their undoubtable power.
The Looksit of Luang Por Tob value the Look Om Chan Hmak very highly, because they believe that when Luang Por used to chew the betel-areca nuts with his eyes closed in meditation, that he would enter the Jhanic states of absorption. It is considered to be a fact that true empowerment of amulets is performed by the attainment of arupa jhana (formless state of absorption), and so the Looksit believe that the Look Om of Luang Por Tob were properly and poerfully blessed using the correct and powerful method of empowerment
Whoever was able to visit Luang Por Tob and ask for some of his Chan Hmak chewed betel-areca is considered extremely lucky, because Luang Por Tob would only spit it out if asked, and would otherwise always swallow it all, making the Chan Hmak a rare thing to obtain. His Looksit would sit watching him meditate and wait to ask him for some Chan Hmak, in fear of blinking in case he swallowed it before they could ask.
If Luang Por Tob would chew betel in the night time, he would sometimes spit the betel-areca out onto the cliffside near his hut, and when the sediment had accumulated enough, he would ask his apprentices to collect it and gather for later to make amulets with. This was because the number of devotees who had begun to ask for Look Om had become ten times more than the amount he was able to make during the day, and was ever increasing, so Luang Por had to look for ways to increase the amount of Chan Hmak he was able to make for the devotees.
Look Om Chan Hmak See Pheung Luang Por Tob
The Look Om became famous over the years because of the large number of miraculous stories of devotees experiencing life saving miracles, with Klaew Klaad and Kong Grapan Chadtri protection involved.
Many people would travel to the temple from far afield to ask for Look Om Chan Hmak,and the number of devotees were ever increasing. So Luang Por decided to find a way to provide more to the people, and ordered his looksit to begin a new admixture that was easier to make larger quantity of, by mixing Betel-Areca with the Bai Plu leaf, the chewing cement (Poon Hmak), and mix with his Ya Chun rolling tobacco and other sacred ingredients, which were then mxed into a larg mound of sacred clay and given to Luang Por Tob on a tray to empower the sacred clay in solo.
The samaneras and other apprentice monks of Luang Por Tob would then take the tray of clay and mix it all together again in a large mortar bowl with the previous trays they had made for Luang Por to empower, and keep repeating the process until they had enough of the clay to make a complete edition with.
Then they took the final admixture and returned it to Luang Por Tob for a second empowerment to ensure the power of the Muan Sarn Clay to be as powerful as possible, They then molded the clay into balls and wrapped them with cord, to make them durable against the weather and wear and tear. Once the Look Om were all made, they were placed on a receptacle and returned once more to Luang Por Tob for a further empowerment session.
Look Om Chan Hmak Thak Chueak Early Era Luang Por Tob
The Look Om which were not wrapped in cord were taken and dried out in the sun. The apprentices would take the still wet clay and lay them out to dry and wrap them in a piece of cloth and tie it up. This is why some of Luang Por Tob’s Look Om are found wrapped inside a piece of cloth, instead of woven cord.
Some apprentices would take a piece of rattan and place the Look Om inside it, and seal the rattan with some Krang Putsa paste, or some candle wax from sacred candles, or even tree sap. Ther apprentices would roll the Chan Hmak into a tiny ball and cover it in Krang Putsa resinous paste and apply flame to the Krang Putsa to seal it around the Look Om. After some time the Krang Putsa paste ran out, so the apprentices would use Khee Pheung Borisut pure forest beesnest beeswax, which was used for making See Pheung, and heat it to make it malleable, and cover the Look Om with it
They would wrap them in cords, and dip the cord wrapped Look Om in Melted beeswax to seal them up and prevent water or insects from being able to get inside. After this, they then began to distribute the Look Om to devotees, and the rest, is History.

Luang Por Kong (3rd April 2407 – 6th February 2486 BE)
Luang Por Kong Wat Bang Gaporm is a name that devotees have been uttering for over a century now, and which is a name that resounds with fame for Patipata (Purity of Practice) as well as for Wityakom (Wicha Saiyasart Buddha Magic Sorcery).
Luang Por Kong was one of the abbots of Wat Bang Gaporm in Amphoe Ampawa in Samut Songkram, whose Rian Kanajarn Monk Coins are said to be the second most popular monk coins of that era, after Luang Por Gaew of Wat Puang Malai. His Rian Tong Daeng holds fourth position in the most popular coins of all time of the Benjapakee Coin Amulet Family (Most Popular Monk Coins of the Five Main regions of Thailand). His famous Run Badtr Dtan 2486 BE coin in silver with Rachawadee enamels, is very famed for the number of persons who had miraculous events occur whilst wearing the amulet.
Luang Por Kong was Ordained into the Sangha in 2427 BE in the month of August with Pra Ajarn Duang as Upachaya Ordaining Officer, and Pra Ajarn Jui as his Gammawajajarn Prompting Officer and Ajarn Tim of Wat Mueang Mai as his Anusawanajarn Witness. Plus 25 Ordained Monks of the temple attended as witnesses. He was given the ‘Chāyā’ Monk’s Name of ‘Tammachōdtō’, which means ‘He who Advances in Dhamma’
Once he had Ordained, Luang Por Kong began to study and master Pali Sanskrit Grammar, which he found himself to have a great affinity for. He spent 13 years studying and mastering the translation of many Kampira Grimoires with his Kroo Ba Ajarn, and developed immense ability and fluency in Khom Pali Sanskrit. He also took intense interest in the Wicha Prawaet Wityakom (Buddha Magic and Occult Sorcery). He began to practice Magic right from the very beginning of his ordination starting with Pra Ajarn Duang, his Upachaya, who taught him to master the Wicha Tam Pong Lob Sacred Yantra Powder making ritual method. Luang Por Kong continued to gather Wicha from Luang Por Dtard of Wat Ban Wan Tong, who was a Master Adept of the Wicha Na Bad Dtalord. It was said that Luang Por Dtard was able to blow a Yantra spell through the crown of the head of a devotee sat on a blackboard, and make the Yantra pass through, and appear on the blackboard the devotee was sitting on.
This Wicha which Luang Por Kong Mastered, was the very same Wicha which the great Gaeji Ajarn Luang Por Tong Sukh had also learned from the very same Master. Luang Por Kong also was bestowed Wicha by Luang Por Hrun, of Wat Chang Phueak, who was a monk who possessed supernatural abilities, and who is famed for having passed away seated in meditation.
In his 21st Year of Ordination, the folk of the Municipality Invited Luang Por Kong to accept the position of Abbot of Wat Bang Gaporm, and perform the duty of caring for the temple and its development, and the faith of the devotees of the temple. Luang Por Kong built various edifices to improve the temple in his lifetime, as well as creating the Pra Pha Lelai Buddha statue, and perform many restorations within the temple enclave. His practice and teachings were a source of hope and inspiration to the local Thai Buddhist Folk, for he was always ready and willing to come to the aid of his congregation when asked for help.
Luang Por Kong became ill in the end because he never stopped doing his endless duties, be it building Buddha statues, restoration works on temple buildings, creating and blessing amulets, and attending to the calls of the congregation. In the 4th Month of each year, he would take his Glod (Umbrella with Mosquito Net), and stay in the cemetery at the side of the temple. He would practice Tudong 13 there for a period of 1 Month each Year. He considered this a self purification practice after spending the whole year busy with the needs of the world, and a withdrawal from the world to reflect on his own practice.
The Miraculous Passing of Luang Por Kong
On the 6th February 2485 BE, Luang Por Kong was seated performing the chanting of the instalment of a Buddha-Rupa image of a local shop in the township, when, just as he had finished blessing the Topknot of the Buddha statue after opening the eyes of the Buddha, he became dizzy and fell to be caught by other Bhikkhus. He was able to regain his awareness and asked to be helped into the meditation posture, where he sat then and entered meditation, and passed away silently.
His devotees remained seated in silence for a long time before they realised he had passed away, and even longer before they could bring themselves to bring Luang Por Kong’s body down from the shop premises.
And so it was that Luang Por Kong passed away in Meditation after blessing a Buddha-Rupa, on 6th February 2485 BE, at age 78, after 58 years of Ordained Life.

Dtua Por Pan Pitsadarn by Luang Phu Yen, of Wat Sra Bprian (21/3/2445 BE – 12/5/2539 BE)
It is said, that Luang Phu Taep Loke Udorn gave the method of making this Spell to Luang Phu Yen, who then shared it with his friend Luang Phu Yai, who passed it then onwards to both of their Looksit respectively, on to reach the current Wicha Holder, Luang Por Tong.Luang Phu Yen was a very famous Master for his Powerful Hun Payont effigies, which he would make in the shape of a Thai letter ‘P’ (Por Pan).
The Hun Payont Por Pan Pitsadarn is empowered with the Lineage blessings of Luang Phu Taep Loke Udorn and prayer to the Hun Payont Por Pan Pitsadarn will call the miracle powers of the Great Master down through the lineage and emanate from the amulet.One should ask both Luang Phu Yen and Luang Phu Taep Loke Udorn for the blessings you wish when praying.
The Por Pan Pitsadarn is a type of Hun Payont Effigy of the ‘Say Bon’ veriety (higher path – sai lang and say bon are the lower and upper paths, meaning white, or black magic). The meaning of the Por Pan effigy is ‘Triple Gem’ of Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha. It is therefore not simply an Animist Charm, but is in fact a Buddhist Sacred Artifact of the New Era.
The Por Pan Pitsadarn emits Countless Magical Properties, including Klaew Klaad, Kong Grapan, Maha Lap, Metta Mahaniyom. The letterPstands for ‘Por’ (father) and the great father of all Buddhists is of course the Lord Buddha.

Todays post brings you a look at a classic amulet from the Great Luang Por An, of Wat Prayat, with Muan Sarn Sacred Powders from the Kroo Ba Ajarn of Luang Por An, Luang Por Glan, preceding Abbot of Wat Prayat.
The Pra Pruhnang Amulet is a Historic Buddha Image of immensely tasteful artistic design, and made using sacred clay with added powders of Luang Por Glan, and a host of other ancient amulets from the Ayuttaya period broken down into the powders. Luang Por An was the Looksit Aek first Initiate of Luang Por An inherited the Sorcery Wicha of Luang Por Glan (Wat Prayat), and his special Muan Sarn Sacred Powders, and who blessed these amulets with the invocations of his Lineage Master Luang Por Glan.
Pra Pruhnang Luang Por An Wat Prayat
Luang Por An was one of the Great Gaeji Ajarn Masters of His Era, considered one of the Great Ayuttaya Master Monks, whose amulets are extremely favoured throughout all circles of collectors. The Pra Pruhnang Klueab, along with the Pra Khun Phaen Klueab glazed baked Sacred Clay amulets are amongst his most famous and preferred amulets of the pantheon. Most devotees of Wat Prayat will collect and Bucha amulets from both Luang Por An, and his Kroo Ba Ajarn Luang Por Glan (hard to find), for the magic of both Masters is seen to be second to none for Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Metta Maha Niyom power.
Close up of Pra Pruhnang Amulet
Luang Por Glan was the abbot of Wat Prayat in Ayuttaya, and the Kroo Ba Ajarn of the Great Luang Por An, who succeeded Luang Por Glan as abbot of Wat Prayat after his passing. In turn, Luang Por An was also a Great Master of Olden Days, whose amulets were immensely famous during the Wartime Era, for their Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad power. Luang Por An inherited and learned most of his Wicha from Luang Por Glan, who was one of the top ten Masters with the most powerful psychic powers of his Era.

The Pra Pruhnang, which features an image of the Buddha in Mara Vichai (subduing Mara), is seated touching the earth, calling the Dharani Earth Goddess as his Witness. The two Savaka Pra Mokkhallana and Pra Saributra are standing to either side of the Buddha, who is surrounded by a decorative Arch.
The Pra Pruhnang Amulet is an ancient Amulet of the Ayuttaya Kingdom which is a Historical Artifact, and a Highly revered Votive Tablet. The original Pra Pruhnang is found at Wat Putai Sawan and was discovered hidden at other Temples in the Ayuttaya Region too.
Pra Pruhnang Leaden Amulet, Ayuttaya Era
It is a famous fact that both the Great Khun Pantagij Rachadech (creator of the Jatukam Ramathep Amulet) and his Unkillable Enemy the Bandit ‘Suea Fai’, were both known to highly rever the Pra Pruhang amulet, and wore more than one of them on the same neck chain around their necks.
Even after retiring from hunting Bandits, Khun Pan still wore the amulets for protection until his old age. The Pra Pruhnang is one of the most famous amulets for its power of Kong Grapan Chadtri and Klaew Klaad protective magic, and also for its healing powers.
The Pra Pruhnang is one of the more highly prized amulets of collectors and devotees of Luang Por An, and of Thai Buddhist People everywhere, for its beauty, and the presence of three Arahants, in one amulet. The muan sarn clay was made from an admixture of various ancient amulets of the Ayuttaya Era, such as Pra Nai Putsa, Pra Wat Tagrai, Pra Kring Klong Takian, Pra Kone Samor, Pra Luang Por Dto Wat Bang Grating, Pra Luang Por Parn, and amulets from Wat Koo Salort, as well as a large number of other Ancient Pra Kru hiding place amulets from around the Ayuttaya province.
Luang Por An was born in the year 2435 BE, and ordained into the Sangha at Wat Prayatigaram on the 26th May 2456 BE, with the Great Luang Por Glan Tammachoti as his Ordaining Upachaya,Luang Por Chaay (Wat Dtong Pbu) as his Gammawajajarn prompting officer. The name of his Anusawanajarn witness is no longer recorded, but most devotees assume it to be Pra Ajarn Rod Widtuyo of Wat Ayotaya (also called Wat Gasankh), or a few historians believe his Anusawanajarn witness to have been Luang Por Lueang, of Wat Pradoo Song Tam.
The Great Luang Por An passed away in 2512 BE as he was on travels visiting Wat Pra Singh in Chiang Mai, for a Buddha Abhiseka Blessing. His body was kept for devotees to worship at Wat Prayat for 25 years before he was cremated in the year 2536 BE.
Presenting a classic all time famous amulet of immense repuite for Maha Lap and Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad powers, and a Pra Niyom Master-Class Category amulet of the Highest Status and Esteem. Pra Pid Ta Pim Pung Bpong potbellied Nirodha Buddha amulet of the Legendary Luang Phu Sukh, of Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao, in Nuea Pong Kluk Rak.
The Pra Pid Ta Pim Pung Bpong was made by hand pressing by Luang Phu Sukh in the years 2460 BE to 2463 BE, to be handed out in the Funeral Ceremony of Luang Phu Sukh’s Mother. The artisan’s design shows itself to be the work of a local artisan, for its basic appearance. The Buddha has a pot belly and two hands raised to cover the face. The amulet is made from Nuea Pong Kluk Rak Muan Sarn Sacred Powders mixed with herbal lacquer. This edition has identical Muan Sarn clay to the ‘Jaek Mae Krua’ edition. The examination of the Pra Pid Ta Pung Bpong is not performed by looking at the Pim Song (design) because the hand made nature means that each amulet is slightly different in appearance, so the standard method of confirming its origins, is to look at the Muan Sarn Clay, and to know its appearance and textures

The rear face is curved from the curvature of the thumb or finger that pressed it, and this is a noticeable feature of all Pra Pid Ta Pim Pung Bpong amulets.

The amulets of this, perhaps the greatest of all Master Monks with Wicha Akom, are amongst the most sought after and valued in the world of Thai Buddhist Amulets. Be it his Rian Roop Muean, Somdej Rasamee and Somdej Prapa Mondon, or his Pra Pid Ta, Prok Bai Makham, Takrut, Prakam Rosaries, and other Talismanic Charms, the spiritual value and magical power is equally regarded as being of the most powerful and truly magical amulets one could afford.
Luang Phu Sukh is one of the greatest Magic Monks of all Thai History, for which reason this is an amulet more to keep and Bucha than anything else, although it is also a good investment as the price will become ever more expensive. This is already an extremely rare and hard to find amulet. A most sacred and desirable addition to anyones collection indeed. Few amulets at this price can compare considering the sacredness, the maker and the beauty and age of this amazing amulet.
Luang Phu Sukh, who was so famous for his Magical Powers and Miraculous Feats, which included having been seen to blow into Tamarind tree leaves and transform them into Bees, or turn Banana Flowers into live Rabbits, fly through the sky, and breathe underwater. Luang Phu Sukh was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of his Lordly Highness, Admiral Grom Luang Chumporn, who was an apprentice to Luang Phu Sukh in Sorcery, and one of his greatest Devotees.
Luang Phu Sukh had many Wicha such as the Wicha Suea Saming, able to transform into a Tiger, and the Wicha Look Pern Sakot, which was to perform incantations into a bullet of a single shot firing gun, and the bullet would always find its mark on target, without fail. One could say that Luang Phu Suk is one of the greatest masters of the History of Thai Guru Monks, and is one of the top Ten Legendary Monks of all time.
There are so any legends told about his miraculous powers and feats. His Mastery of Traditional healing and herbal Medicine has led his written works on the subject to become the greatest Thai Occult herbalism Recipe Grimoire in all existence. He was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of a great number of the most powerful Master Monks of the last Century, and his powerful Magic remains second to no other Guru Monk in Thai History.
It is said that Luang Phu Sukh became the Kroo Ba Ajarn of Grom Luang Chumporn, a Royal Courtier, an Admiral, and a Great Sorceror of his time. This happened as Grom Luang Chumporn’s navy boat had broken and he was forced to park the bloat close to Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao. Grom Luang went to make reverence to Luang Phu Sukh, by pretending that he was just a simple commoner, and not a member of the Lordly Family, but Luang Phu Sukh addressed him by his name, surprising Grom Luang Chumporn.

Grom Luang went to make reverence to Luang Phu Sukh, by pretending that he was just a simple commoner, and not a member of the Lordly Family, but Luang Phu Sukh addressed him by his name, surprising Grom Luang Chumporn. Grom Luang Chumporn asked Luang Phu Sukh how he knew who he was?
Below; Grom Luang Chumporn
Luang Phu Sukh told him that he saw his Aura approaching, and that it was brighter than that of the normal commoners, and that it told him already who he was. Grom Luang Chumporn asked to learn Wicha with Luang Phu Sukh, and was bestowed with many Magical Wicha, such as the ability to remain under the water for hours and breathe as if he was on land.
Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi (Pra Pid Ta Graduk Phii) – Pra Ajarn Hnoo, Wat Po Ta Dtian (Wat Chetupon)
The legendary Pra Pong Athi (Graduk Phii) amulet of Pra Ajarn Hnoo Wat Po Ta Dtian became famous during the second world wartime as a powerful protector against deadly dangers, and has remained famous to this day. It was during the second world war and Indo-Chiina wartime era that many powerful sorceror monks in Thailand began to come out and create amulets to distribute to soldiers and the common folk, to protect them against the deadly dangers of wartime. In that time, the Japanese were occupying Thailand as ‘forced allies’, and so Thailand was being bombed by the allied nations, who were attacking the Japanese military installations. Very often bombs would miss the Japanese target, and hit a local village instead,n and innocent Thai people were killed. And so it was in this era than we came to see amulets like the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii come into existence.
Pra Ajarn Hnoo of Wat Po Ta Dtian (Wat Chetupon)
Pra Ajarn Hnoo was a Master Gaeji Ajarn who was known for his intensive practice and mastery of Vipassana Kammathana, and Khmer Sorcery. he would not socialise with other monks, and only his most fearless and devote initiates would dare to enter his Kuti Hut, for it was known that he would ‘Liang Phii’ (take care of Ghosts in his hut). In the year 2485 BE, Pra Ajarn Hnoo, of Wat Po Ta Dtian (or, ‘Wat Pra Chetupon Wimon Mangkalaram’), created a powerful amulet, in secret, and with his own hands, to help people survive the war and prosper in life. This amulet was to become a legend that has maintained its status into the modern era, and is even the subject of a documentary.
Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi (Pong Graduk Phii) – Pra Ajarn Hnoo (Wat Po)
This amulet is of course the Pra Pid Ta Nuea Pong Athi (or better known as ‘Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii’ amulet. Pra Ajarn Hnoo was a Gaeji Ajarn of Khmer Origins, who possessed powerful Necromantic Wicha. He was not very old at the time, but already had a large following of respectful Devotees, who revered him for his powerful Magic. Pra Ajarn Hnoo liked to grow magical herbs around his Kuti Hut at the temple to use for making amulets and potions, holy water and bestowing blessings. Pra Ajarn Hnoo was often visited by devotees to perform spiritual healings with his holy water and herbal potions, and people would ask him for amulets and blessings. Pra Ajarn Hnoo hence began making amulets, in a very unusual manner compared to the usual Thai Buddhist Traditional methods, bringing in his Khmer Sorcery to add to the magical power of the amulet. He used ashes from the bones of cremated corpses, mixed with Puttakun Powders and Ittijae Powders, and Pong Wan Aathan (a mixture of powdered magical herbs and pollens)
The use of the ashes of cremated bones in the amulets came from Pra Ajarn Hnoo’s Khmer Necromantic Sorcery training, which holds to the premise that the ashes or bone powders, funereal earths and corpse oils of the dead, possess immensely powerful magic.
The ashes of Phii Dtaay Hoeng were used, according to the Dtamra Saiasart Khmer Grimoires of Necromantic Sorcery, which specifies that only the ashes of a Hoeng Prai Ghost can be used if the Wicha is to be powerful. A Hoeng Prai is often known as a ‘screaming ghost’ because the word means a person who died in an accident prematurely, or through unforeseen circumstances. So often this will mean a person who died screaming. Hoeng Prai spirits are in Limbo and often angry, possessing immensely powerful psychic energy. The sorceror appeases the spirit in Limbo by agreeing to a collaborative effort, where the ghost of the spirit in Limbo agrees to use its psychic powers to aid the human who owns the amulet made from its ashes, and accumulate good Karma to achieve eventual release from Limbo.
One of the many Pim Song models of the famous Pra Pong Athi Pra Pid Ta Graduk Phii
In addition, astrological Necromancy states that a Hoeng Prai Ghost must die on a Saturday and be cremated on a Tuesday, for the full formula of Lucky Fortunes Magic to come into effect.
Pra Ajarn Hnoo saw to it that he fulfilled al of these Ritual requirements, and gathered the sacred ashes until he had enough to press amulets with them, and mixed them with his other prepared Muan Sarn Sacred Powder ingredients, the Pong Puttakun, Pong Ittijae, and Wan Aathan. In addition, Pra Ajarn Hnoo then added his special ingredient, ‘Wan Pong’, or more commonly known as ‘Wan Graser’. Wan Graser is a very rare herbal plant found in the deep rainforests, and is said in Folk Legends to be a bloodsucking ‘Vampire’ plant. If an animal gets entangled in it, it is said the plant can slowly suck the blood out of the animal until it dies. This herb is a very difficult herb to cultivate, as its true habitat is in the deepest rain forests, but Pra Ajarn Hnoo had managed to cultivate some around his hut at the temple, and he used them for the making of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phi.
Pra Ajarn Hnoo made various different amulets from the Graduk Phii Hoeng Prai Ashes, including Pra Somdej, and Pra Pid Ta amulets.

In any case, despite the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders used by Pra Ajarn Hnoo to make the Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi amulets seeming very scary in their natural origins, Pra Ajarn Hnoo performed appeasement rituals and purification ceremonies over all the individual ingredients of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders before the amulets were made, and removed any black magick or negative karmic influences and energies from them beforehand, leaving only the pure unstained magical power and energy remaining, to be re-empowered with its new purpose.
The power extracted through Necromancy was then imbued within the form of the Pra Pid Ta amulets, and blessed with Buddhist Blessings of the Buddha Abhiseka (Dhamma Chakra opening of the eyes of the Buddha), empowering the extremely powerful energies within the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders to be able to bring auspicious blessings and strong protective power to keep the wearer from harm, and lead to prosperity and happiness.
Pra Pid Ta Athi Nuea Pong Graduk Phii Exhibit B Pra Ajarn Hnoo – Wat Po
It is said of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii amulet, that its protective powers are incomparable, and that the traveller who wears one will pass through all his journeys safely. Another strange aspect of the magic of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii, is that people noticed not only that one remained safe whilst traveling, but that when the traveler wearing a Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii gets off the vehicle alone, people would ask the traveler ‘and aren’t the others going? coming with you?’ (as if they couldn’t imagine the wearer being alone). This shows powerful Metta Maha Niyom Mercy Charm present within the amulet too.’
Pra Pong Graduk Phii Exhibit C – Pra Ajarn Hnoo – Wat Po
Many gamblers have found the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii to be an exellent Luckbringer to turn the tables and odds in their favour, and to ‘whisper’ in the ear of the gambler to hint as to what bets should be placed. This is known as ‘Prai Grasip’ Ghost Whisperer Magick. Pra Ajarn gave a rule to gamblers however for this amuletl That ‘If your winnings are within reason, you should not push your luck too far’.
A highly preferred amulet with those devotees who prefer less subtlety for a fast acting amulet that emanates Magickal Power without restraints, the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii is a recommendable amulet, for protection, gambling and general prosperity. The Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii is by no means an easy amulet to find these days, and is a very powerful magickal amulet of great fame and renown in Thailand.
Presenting a pristine exhibit of the Pra Roop Muean Pong Prai Kumarn Ta Bronze Wanich Nuea Pong Prai Kumarn Hlang Yant Ha (Yant Ongk Pra on rear face) first edition amulet of extreme rarity, of Luang Phu Tim. Only 96 of these amulets were made in first edition 2518 BE release. This exhibit is an especially attractive example, with Bronze Wanich coating, and highly refined features.
This amulet is in excellent pristine condition, and highly eligible for entry in competition. The front face features the image of Luang Phu in meditative contemplation. The fluffy Pong Prai Kumarn powders are revealed through the surface of the golden Bronze Wanich.
The rear face features the Sacrted Yant Ha of Luang Phu Tim, and is also covered with Luang Phu Tim’s inimitable Bronze Wanich. This is the all-time classic Original Wat Laharn Rai first edition 2518 BE Release of the Pim Jantr Loi, which saw only 96 amulets made in various block presses. This particular exhibit has pristine features and is ‘Ongk Kroo Doo Ngaay‘ (easily identifiable for its classic appearance, with no visual discrepancies, and the evident presence of authentic Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim).
The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the Roop Muean Jantr Loi Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim, are one and the same as the powders found in the extremely expensive Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn amulets of this Master. For this reason, are considered a perfect alternative (and more affordable,) to the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim.
The famous Pong Prai Kumarn powders of Luang Phu Tim are considered by most people to be the most powerful Muan Sarn powders of All Time for Maha Lap Maha Pokasap and Maha Sanaeh Metta Maha Niyom power. The Original amulets of Luang Phu Tim which were released at Wat Laharn Rai, are known to differentiate themselves from other editions released by Luang Phu Tim at other temples. This is for his use of Bronze Wanich golden paint, to cover only amulets in the editions he released through his own temple.
Other temple releases of his amulets are of course equally authentic and Sacred, but less preferred than the ones which came through direct release at the temple of Wat Laharn Rai. Half the reason being, that Luang Phu would use a much more highly concentrated mixture of Pong Prai Kumarn in the editions he released at his own temple at Wat Laharn Rai.
Whereas the related temples where he allowed release and assisted in the blessings, would also mix other Muan Sarn Sacred Powders into the mixture, which despite also being extremely sacred and powerful, would then allow for less quantity of Luang Phu’s highly prized and revered powerful Pong Prai Kumarn powders to be added.
It is hence considered that the Wat Laharn Rai release versions are believed to be much more powerful Maha Lap and Maha Sanaeh type Magic, which are two of the preferred powers with those who like to use Seduction for Love and Business, and Gambling, Lottery and Wealth Attraction. In addition, Luang Phu Tim’s amulets are world famous for Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad Protection.
The second reason for the Wat Laharn Rai releases being the most highly revered and preferred above other editions which Luang Phu blessed and released at other temples, is more of a speculative one. By this, we mean that the Wat Laharn Rai release editions tend to win over other editions in competition. They are also considered to have more aesthetic beauty to them for their high presence of Pong Prai Kumarn and the special high quality ‘Bronze Wanich’ golden coating.
It is a part of the amulet appreciation society expert’s method of authentication to examine and study the appearance of how bronze Wanich golden paint develops in surface texture, tonality and porosity of the surface, as well as the appearance of Luang Phu Tim’s famous Pong Prai Kumarn which rises up and through the surface of the fine golden painted surface.
We ourselves feel that all of Luang Phu Tim’s amulets are equally Sacred and Powerful in their own way, regardless of which edition or which temple he blessed them at, but we do, as do all Amulet Appreciation Fanatics, recognise the categories of preference within the heirarchies of different editions, which is for us one of the more subtle and fascinating parts of the study of high end amulets within the collector scene, and part of the fine art of learning how to recognise and value Sacred Amulets of High Preference and Rarity.
The amulets of Luang Phu Tim, are amongst the most popular amulets in the whole Pantheon of Thai Buddhist Amulets of the last century, and of all time, and is now almost impossible to encounter commonly anywhere except the high end emporiums, and around the necks of the rich and famous. The Pim Jantr Loi is a very rare amulet of Luang Phu Tim, which was only made in extreme limited number of 96 amulets of this 2518 BE fist edition block press, and is a seriously sought after acquisition for the serious collector of Luang Phu Tim’s Pantheon of Amulets. The powerful Pong Prai Kumarn powders are undoubted for their immense Maha Sanaeh Maha Lap power, which has made the amulets of Luang Phu Tim so highly regarded not just for their Master-Class Status, but for their Magical Power to Invoke Prosperity and Invincibility, Luck and Mercy Charm.
The Sacredness is equal to the somewhat more expensive Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders are the same, and in addition, the Bronze Wanich, is also the very same which Luang Phu used to paint the Pra Khun Phaen Amulets of his pantheon, and is one of the recognition factors used to identify his amulets..
This of course makes this amulet a perfect acquisition as both a Master-Class Exhibit and Powerful Amulet of World Fame, but also to use as ‘Ongk Kroo’ (teacher) amulet to obtain an authentic study material, to train the eyes as to the appearance of the Muan Sarn and Surface textures of Luang Phu Tim’s amulets. With time and patience viewing the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders under the eye loupe, you will be able to train yourself in recognising the authentic amulet when coming across one in future. Notice the full fluffy texture of the surface, and the greeny-white marbled Pong Prai Kumarn powder rising up top the surface. This is one of the most difficult effects for forgers to reproduce, and assists you in authenticating his amulets, to know the difference.
Hence, the amulet is also a perfect ‘Ongk Kroo’ reference study material for students of the Pantheon, and will increase your chances of spotting an essential rarity at the right price, and without danger of risking a fakery.
We highly recommend this amulet, as a sound investment and a last chance to obtain and be the proud owner of an authentic 1st Edition Wat Laharn Rai release model of the Eternal Classic Roop Muean Pong Jantr Loi Pong Prai Kumarn of Luang Phu Tim.
Luang Phu used the Bronze Wanich used in this amulet, to paint the famous Nang Paya Plai Diaw, Nang Paya Plai Koo, Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn, and the Classic Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Amulets for which he became so famous. A perfect study piece, and an incredibly Sacred Amulet for Bucha to receive guaranteed Magical Power.
A highly attractive and rare Sacred Amulet, that is truly Powerful and stands as the Master Class Amulet of its Category, and is considered a Most Highly Prized addition to any Master Class Collector’s Showcase, and more importantly, is a most powerful amulet to possess for Bucha, and receive its Blessings. History has proved the amulets of Luang Phu Tim time and time again to be one of the most powerful and famous amulets in Thai Amulet History.
The making of the Muan Sarn Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim, came from the Wicha which Luang Phu had inherited through apprenticeship form one of his high Kroo Ba Ajarn, Kroo Ba Sangkh Tao, who was also his true Uncle. Part of the formula included Pong Prai Maha Phuudt, which was made from the Skull of a male Kumarn who died in the Womb, and who died on a Saturday and was cremated on a Tuesday. This is part of the ancient Khmer Necromantic Formula for Authentic Powerful Prai Occult Magic, as practiced in Ancient Times.
Due to the fact that Monks are not allowed to seek and find this Sacred and Extremely Powerful Necromantic Substance, Luang Phu would perform Korb Kroo Initiation for protection against Black Magic and the Phuudtaa Spirit Phantoms, so they could go forth to seek and find the substances to donate to him for the making of the Pong Prai Kumarn.
The Initiated Lay Devotees and Apprentices to his sorcery, would then wait for the news of the right circumstances of death of Kumarn Ghosts, and go out to collect the substances and prepare them as instructed with the Wicha. They would seek the permission of the relatives of the dead, to obtain the substances to enable the ghosts of the deceased to receive merits to free them from their Karmic residues by donation of their mortal remains to be made into amulets.
They would receive the ceremonial ritual liberation of their souls from Luang Phu Tim, who would speak with the spirits of the dead to receive their acknowledgement for the process of transformation through the Nibbana Sutra, and the Muan Sarn would then be prepared according to the Dtamra Saiyasart of Necromancy, to make the Pong Prai Kumarn.
Luang Phu instructed his apprentices and the relatives of the Funerals to take care not to incinerate the whole skeleton, but to keep the skulls to bring to Luang Phu to use them for the making of the Pong Prai Kumarn. This is one of the reasons why his Pong Prai Kumarn is so powerful, because it does not contain the skeleton bone powders, rather, only those of the skulls.
As a result, Luang Phu Tim’s Pong Prai Kumarn has been recorded by experience of devotees to posses the highest Maha Pokasap Power of all Pong Prai Kumarn ever made, with Immense Metta Maha Niyom and Klaew Klaad Power, to induce Mercy Charm, Attract Lucky Fortunes (e.g. Lottery Winnings), and to Protect from Deadly Accidents and Disasters.The power of the Pra Roop Muean Jantr Loi amulet is said to be just the same as the Pra Khun Phaen, with the only difference being the design.
The Roop Muean Jantr Loi is hence a preferred choice of both the wise investor and devotee, as well as the perfect choice for those Devotees who seek the immense power of Luang Phu Tim;s amulets, but cannot find or afford a Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn. One can consider this exhibit to be an extremely rare opportunity to acquire one of Luang Phu’s rarest amulets, of which only 96 were ever made in first edition, and a powerful Master-Class amulet of the highest esteem from one of the Greatest Thai Buddhist master Monks in History
Luang Phu Tim Isarago, is of course not only one of the most highly acclaimed and sought after Guru Monks for his amulets, he is the holder of the highest esteem in Thai Buddhist amulet history for Pong Prai Kumarn powders. Luang Phu Tim, is Internationally Acclaimed, for his famous Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, Pra Kring, Rian (coins) and Look Om powder balls. As to the classic ‘Rian coin image amulets, many have become all time favourites, and eternally, world famous classic amulets of the high end variety.
Since his passing, his devotees and apprenticed monks, have now become the world’s top living masters for the making of Pra Khun Phaen Pong Pra Kumarn, and literally dozens of encyclopaedic books, have been printed, documenting both this great master monk, and his classic amulets of high esteem.
Buddhist monk coins with his image and others with Buddha images and other deities and imagery are amongst the most highly collected amulets and most expensive of all of the great Luang Phu Tim. He has various direct lineage apprentices, Who are continuing to progress and spread his most powerful and world-famous Wicha.
Of all of these masters, perhaps the most famous, preferred, was Luang Por Sakorn, of Wat Nong Grub, who is also now deceased, and whose amulets are fast becoming just as highly sought after. In second place one could possibly estimate the great Luang Phu Sin, of Wat Laharn Yai, and in third place, possibly, Pra Ajarn Somkid, of Wat Beung Tata (Rayong).
Pra U-Tong Awk Seuk – Jong Ang Seuk Edition 2510 BE – Wat Pra Sri Radtana Maha Tat (Supanburi)
The ‘Pra U-Tong Awk Seuk’ amulet, was made and first blessed in the year 1510 BE in a large Buddha Abhiseka Blessing ceremony at Wat Pra Sri Radtana Maha Tat temple, in Supanburi. One can see that the amulet is indeed the same features as the classic Pra Kru Pong Supan, ancient Pra-Kru hiding place amulet of Supanburi Province, whose original archeological find of U-Tong Era amulets was of course also at Wat Pra Sri Radtana Maha Tat. This is of course intentional, but in the case of this edition, was given the special name of Pra U-Tong Awk Seuk’
The amulet is known as the ‘Jong Ang Seuk’ edition, because a large number of them (25,700 amulets) were sent to distribute to the soldiers who had travelled to fight in the Vietnam War, to protect them in battle. The remainder of the amulets which were not sent to the warriors on the front lines, were not distributed at first, and were passed through a further 2 Buddha Abhiseka blessing ceremonies. The first of those further two ceremonies was held between the 2nd and 10th March 2511 Be, and the second extra blessing ceremony was held on the 13th April 2511 BE. Thereafter, most of the remaining amulets were distributed to civil servants and those in governmental offices, and the last remaining amulets were then kept stored away in the Kru Hiding Chamber in the year 2512 BE
The Pra U-Tong Awk Seuk is a classic and historically famous edition of Wat Pra Sri Radtana Mahatat, in Supannburi, that is modelled in similarity to the Pra Pong Supan’Pim Hnaa Gae’ Benjapakee amulet of Supreme Fame and Reverence. Although this edition is commonly known to have the Pim Hnaa Gae Nang Samadhi Khat Paetch Meditating Buddha Image (both hands clasped together facing upwards on the lap), there were actually also some models made, which have a Buddha Image seated in the Mara Vichai (Conquering Mara) Posture, with one hand reaching down to touch the earth.
The Muan Sarn and features of the amulet are rich in Nuances, and provide and excellent exhibit for viewing as study material for the Pra Pong Supan Pim Hnaa Gae type amulet, and its features.
Klaew Klaad Maha Amnaj, Serm Yos, Kong Grapan Chadtri, Maha Ud Power for those in lines of duty where the ability to instil confidence and trust, convince others of your will, and survive great dangers, increase status and chances of promotion. Such are the powers of the Pra U-Tong Awk Seuk Jong Ang Seuk Pong Supan amulet, and all Pra Pong Supan of the Benjapakee Class family of amulets.
Monks present in the ceremony included Luang Por Mui (Wat Don Rai), Luang Por Thin (Wat Pa Lelai, in Supanburi), Luang Por Khom (Wat Rong Phai Wua, Supanburi), Luang Por Huad, (Wat Don Po Tong), Luang Por Pae (Wat Pikul Tong), Luang Por An (Wat Prayatikaram, Ayuttaya), Luang Por Tim (Wat Pra Khaw, Ayuttaya), Luang Por Ngern (Wat Don Yai Horm),and Luang Por Noi (Wat Dhamma Sala, Nakorn Pathom), amongst a total of 69 Guru Masters present in all.
