The Amulets of Luang Por Chaeng Wat Bang Pang

Presenting a look at some of the most classic ancient amulets of the great Luang Por Chaeng, of Wat Bang Pang, beginning with the Pra Pong Nam Man series, which Thai Buddhist Folk of Olden days (and the present day), consider the best alternative choice to the incredibly expensive Pra Putta Jao pratap Sadtw Buddha Riding Animal Steeds amulets of the great Luang Por Parn, of Wat Bang Nom Kho; Namely the Pra Somdej Buddha Riding animals amulets of Luang Por Chaeng, of Wat Bang Pang in Nontaburi

Pra Somdej Khee Sadtw, is an ancient amulet of classic fame, released in the year 2484 BE, from one of the Great Guru Masters of the World War II and Indo-China Wartime Era, Luang Por Chaeng (2428 – 2500 BE), of Wat Bang Pang.

The Buddha riding animals series are considered to be his most popular amulets in present times, followed by the Pra Kring, and his famous Pra Sivali, and the Ganha Chali, which are also only rarely to find in the public auctions, as devotees and collectors have gathered most of the last remaining amulets in circulation..

The Pra Somdej Khee Sadtw Buddha Riding Animals amulets of Luang Por Chaeng are considered to be the perfect alternative to the much more expensive Pra Putta Jao Pratab Sadtw amulets of Luang Por Parn (Wat Bang Nom Kho), and are indeed seen to be equally powerful, but much less expensive.

Biography of Luang Por Chaeng Sīlapanyā, of Wat Bang Pang

Luang Por Chaeng, Silapanya was born on a Friday on the 18th December 2428 BE. He was ordained in 2440 at the age of 12 as a Samanera Novice Monk, and remained ordained until the age of 20, when he was then ordained up one level to the status of a fully fledged adult Bhikkhu Monk. Luang Por Chaeng was a Pra Gaeji Ajarn Master Monk of the second World Wartime, of great importance in Thai History. He was highly reputed Master of Vipassana Kammathana practice, whose Mastery was heard of far and wide.

Luang Por Chaeng was the second abbot of Wat Bang Pang, in Nontaburi, Bangkok, after his predecessor Luang Por Pra Atigarn Jaroen. His powerful psychic abilities to empower amulets was highly reputed within the Sangha on a National Level, and he was always an invited member of the greatest and most important ‘Putta Pisek’ (Buddha Abhiseka) blessing ceremonies in History, including the Great HIstorical Ceremony of empowerment of Magical Protective Yantra cloths and ‘Suea Yant’ Yantra shirts for the Thai Military.

 


Luang Por Chaeng Wat Bang Pang

In the times of the second world and Indo-China wars, there were a few great Monks who stood out above all others for their Kong Grapan Chadtri, Klaew Klaad and Maha Ud Magic, whom the Thai Buddhist Folk of all Provinces knew and revered, no matter how remote the village. These great wartime Era Monks of great Magical Power were of course, Luang Por Jong, of Wat Na Tang Nork in Ayuttaya, Luang Por Jad of Wat Bang Grabao Luang Por and the great Luang Por Chaeng, of Wat Bang Pang, Luang Por Juan, and Luang Por Opasi

During the Indochina War, the Thai Military was ordered into battle, and a great ceremony to make Pha Prajiad Sipsee Pan Tong of Luang Por Chaeng, and Yantra Shirts of Luang Por Jad to protect them in the War, was held with a great blessing ritual, empowered by four of thee great monks, Luang Por Jong, Luang Por Chaeng, Luang Por Jad, and Luang Por Chuan.

The famous Pha Yant Prajiad were given to some soldiers to test with three point blank range shots, all of which failed. these Yantra cloths of Luang Por Chaeng, and the Yantra Shirts of Luang Por jad (Wat Bang Grabao) were worn into battle, and became the famous story of the French Military seeing Thai soldiers shot with bullets, who were knocked to the ground by the bullets, and immediately stood up again and went back into battle as if nothing had hit them. The French Military then called the Thai Military ‘Taharn Phi’ (Ghost Soldiers).

Luang Por Chaeng held the Wicha of a number of Kroo Ba Ajarn, who bestowed him with their lineage secrets, including the Great Luang Por Parn of Wat bang Hia (Wat Klong Dan), ;ph Khai of Wat Cherng Lane, Luang Phu Chay of Wat Panan Cherng,, Pra Kanajarn Say (Luang Por Say), Luang Phu Sukh, of Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao, Luang Por Parn of Wat Bang Nom Kho, and the Great Luang Por Jong of Wat Na Tang Nork.

As Luang Por Chaeng was alive and abbot of Wat Bang Pang, he would receive many devotees each day with numerous requests, none of whom he would refuse. Some would come for Blessings, some for Amulets, and others to heal their Illnesses, and some devotees who had heard of his Magical Prowess, came to beseech the secrets of his Wicha, to become Sorcerors themselves, and help those in their hometowns.

Luang Por Chaeng would bless, distribute amulets, and heal his devotees without exception. As to those devotees who beseeched apprenticeship to learn to cast spells with Kata Akom Incantations, Luang Por Chaeng would always first make the Looksit learn to develop their meditative skill, and to allow them to develop moral fibre and the five precepts. Only then, when they had risen above the base temptations, would he allow them the secrets of the Incantations, their sequences and methods. He would teach his students how to cure ailments and banish curses, and expunge ghosts and spirits from possessed souls.

 


Luang Por Chaeng had a great respect for Luang Por Parn of Wat Bang Nom Kho, and had received a lot of influence from him in the art of amulet making. So when he would make his amulets, he would often make models which resembled and paid reverence to the famous Pra Pim Pra Putta Jao Pratap Sadtw Buddha riding Animals amulets. He made original designs which resembled those of Wat Bang Nom Kho, with differences in design to distinguish them. This caused his amulets to become very popular, as this was the preferred type of amulet at the time in Central Thailand.

Luang Por Chaeng made a large number of different amulets, ranging from the Buddha riding animals, and other sacred powder amulets in many forms, in small (Pim Lek), medium (Pim Klang) and large (Pim Yai), Monk Coins, the world famous Pha Yant Tong Yantra Flags, Sai Sek blessed sandgrains, the highly preferred and now rare Pra Kring, and Pra Chaiyawat Loi Ongk Statuettes, Pra Prajam Wan (Birthday Buddha amulets), Nang Kwak beckoning lady, Pra Putta Kwak beckoning Buddha, Pra Sam Lia, (triangular amulet), and of course, his famous and extremely popular Pra Sivali metallic Loi Ongk Statuette amulets, which were made in ancient casting methods, in various forms and sizes, for Bucha on the altar as well as for wear as amulets.

His sacred powder amulets were made from a number of different Muan Sarn substance clays, including Puttakun (Yantra Powders), Nuea Din (Earthen Clay), and Pong Nam Man (Oily Herbal Powders). The amulet appreciation society and the aficionados tend to prefer the Pong Nam Man Oily powder models above the other Muan Sarn Sacred Powders, but there is not a very large difference in their price compared to the difference in their rarity.

In the year 2484 BE, Many devotees gathered to officially ask Luang Por Chaeng to make some powerful amulets to protect them during the War. So Luang Por Por Chaeng made a very large release of amulets of different types, with extreme power and effort after many years of preparation.

Luang Por Chaeng Wat Bang Pang

 

He empowered them for Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad and Maha Ud to protect the Thai Buddhist people, in that time of Wars around South East Asia and the whole World. None of the multitudes of amulets blessed in the ceremony were rented out for money, instead, all were handed out for free to the devotees at the ceremony.

The Buddha riding animal amulets of Luang Por Chaeng are used as a second choice for those who do not possess the funds to obtain a Luang Por Parn Wat Bang Nom Kho model, and are said to be equally powerful protective amulets.

Luang Por Chaeng did not bake the clay in his edition, preferring to make them from an admixture which contained Poon Plueak Hoi (ground seashell), which results in a smoother and lighter colour and texture than Luang Por Parn’s clay models. Otherwise, his powder amulets contain the same 5 Sacred Yantra Powders Pong Bpathamang, Pong Puttakun, Pong Ittijae (sometimes called ‘Ittajae’), Pong Trinisinghae, and Pong Maharach. Luang Por Chaeng’s formula also included Gesorn flower pollens, Sai Sek enchanted sand, Khaw Suk cooked rice (from monks almsbowls)

Luang Por Chaeng passed away peacefully on 26th July 2500 BE at the age of 72 years old, after 52 years in the ordained Sangha. His body was cremated in the year 2501 BE after being moved to Wat Makut Kasatriyaram. A series of ‘Rian Khaw Hlaam’ four sided Monk coins with the image of Luang Por Chaeng were handed out to the devotees during the cremation ceremony as a sacred memento of Luang Por Chaeng.

His amulets have become a classic preferred sacred religious artifact of the pre 2500 BE Era, and a guaranteed auspicious Buddhist Votive Tablet that can be treasured and revered for generations to come. A truly sacred ancient amulet from one of the most powerful masters of the World War II Era.

Luang Por Chaeng was an important monk present called for the empowerment of amulets in many great ceremonies, particularly notable the Wat Rachabopit Indojin Ceremony of 2481 BE, considered to be the largest Blessing Ceremony of all History., the 25 Centuries of Buddhism Ceremony of 2500 BE (second of three largest ceremonies in History) and his presence was beseeched to assist in empowering the world famous historical edition of Pra Kring Wat Sutat.


Pra Somdej Pim Chedi Norn Wat Lakorn Tam by Luang Phu Nak of Wat Rakang, and Luang Por Supoj, of Wat Sutat

Presenting a new video with narrative by Ajarn Spencer Littlewood in our new series of videos ‘Amulet Talk’ which present you with the first of many insightful videos with narratives, to increase your awareness, and to bring interesting aspects of the topic of Thai Buddhist Amulets to you for your enjoyment. We hope this new series of videos provides you with useful study material. This episode of Amulet Talk provides a look at two Pra Somdej Pim Chedi Norn Wat Lakorn Tham, from two great master monks, which feature Buddha images seated over one of the horizontal ‘sleeping’ chedi stupas of Wat Lakorn Tam. We invite you to enjoy the HD Video and Narrative by Ajarn Spencer Littlewood, which gives a basic look at these two amulets which have a semi tenuous relationship to each other, but which are also completely distinct from each other. The Pra Somdej Chedi Norn Wat Lakorn Tham amulets of Luang Phu Nak (Wat Rakang Kositaram) and The Pra Somdej Hwaek Man Pim Chedi Norn of Luang Por Supoj (Wat Sutat).

The amulets represent the two chedi stupas at Wat Lakorn Tam temple, which were built and installed by the great Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri of Wat Rakang Kositaram. The two amulets are made by Luang Phu Nak of Wat Rakang Kositaram in the year 2495 BE (left side in white Puttakun Powders), and from Jao Khun Sri Sonti (Luang Por Supoj) of Wat Sutat, for the Indojin Indo-China Wartime Blessing ceremony, made in Nuea Wan Pasom Pong Gao. There were actually three different masters who made Pra Somdej Pim Chedi Norn, the third being Luang Phu Hin of Wat Rakang Kositaram, whose amulet is not shown in this vide, but which we will show when we obtain an example, in a future video.

Pra Somdej Pim Chedi Norn amulets by Luang Phu Nak of Wat Rakang, and Luang Por Supoj, of Wat Sutat

Both amulets from both masters (who were colleagues of each other), were made using broken pieces of ancient Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram amulets from the time of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri. The amlets are however distinct, and made at different times, with different designs, the only things in common truly being the Muan Sarn Sacred Powder content using ancient Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram, and the imagery of the sleeping Chedi Stupas of Wat Sutat. otherwise, the Buddha images and their outer arches, and daises, are distinct and apart from each other. For example, the Buddha on the Pra Somdej Chedi Norn Luang Phu Nak has a single tiered dais, whereas the Buddha on the Pra Somdej Chedi Norn Luang Por Supoj, has four tiered dais.

The Pra Somdej Lai Sen Edition is a very early era edition from Luang Por Pae, and a very rare model within his large pantheon of amulets. This exhibit is in pristine condition and an extremely attractive example, hence even more rare for its excellence. Its features and ageing characteristics are perfect for study and appreciation.

The rear face of the amulet has the Cameo image of Luang Por Pae (side view), with his signature underneath, in his handwriting, which is why this edition became known as the ‘signature’ edition. The base of the amulet has some Pong Wised Sacred Powder Paste inserted into the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the amulet, according to Luang Por Pae’s Traditional Wicha. This edition is highly revered for the presence of hair of Luang Por Pae within the sacred Clay mixture.

Ancient Amulet’s Top Recommendation for 2015 -Sacred Ancient Amulets from Luang Phu Tim (Wat Laharn Rai), and Luang Phu To (Wat Pradoo Chimplee).This now ever-increasingly famous and sought out 2516 BE edition, from Wat Sri Palotay, in Chonburi, has now become one of the most favored and hunted additions in recent times, especially in collectors circles, and with the Devotees of the two great master monks of the last half century; Luang Phu Tim (Wat Laharn Rai), and Luang Phu To (Wat Pradoo Chimplee). 

Pra Somdej Kaiser 2516 BE Luang Phu Tim Wat Sri Palotay

Pra Somdej Kaiser 2516 BE Luang Phu Tim Wat Sri Palotay

The reason for this, is that News has now got out around the Nation, that these amulets were empowered and blessed by the Great Luang Phu Tim, and Luang Phu To, with Muan Sarn Sacred Powders from Luang Phu Tim being added to the sacred clay amulets.

These amulets, have the obvious presence of Pong Prai Kumarn, and other famous Muan Sarn Sacred Powders, known to come from the hand of Luang Phu Tim. This edition is now slowly taking on immense preference and popularity, even faster than the Wat Pai Lom amulets.

Pra Somdej Prok Po Luang Phu Tim 2516 BE Wat Sri Palotay

 This is due to the fact that since Luang Phu Tim’s first generation amulets became depleted, and only available to Millionaires, this subsequently, has caused the second tier of more commonly known amulets blessed by Luang Phu Tim, such as the Wat Pai Lom edition, to also suffer rapid depletion, and disappearance of the edition from the marketplace.

The Wat Sri Palotay edition was not recognised until 2011, and hence has till now escaped the speculators and collectors and evaded their hands, allowing these amulets to still be avaialable whilst they are still not featured in the Nationwide News.

This will however happen, and it is only a matter of time before this series of amulets blessed, empowered and with Muan Sarn Sacred Powders from Luang Phu Tim and Luang Phu To, is also only to be found in collector catalogies, competitions, and the showcases of millionaires.

Various different models were released in this edition including various Pra Pid Ta, Pra Somdej, Pra Pud, and other amulets. Some mode,s, such as the Pid Ta, were made in different versions or sizes.

The edition is highly recommended to colkect before they become yet another rarity that is eyond the affordable reach of the general devotee, and can be considered a definite future classic of World Famous Status.

The edition is however already being snapped up by collectors and devotees in Thailand, where news of Luang Phu Tim’s empowerment of the edition has already begun to become widespread, and is causing fervor in the collector communities. This edition is considered to be slowly taking over status from what is currently the most famous remaining edition of Luang Phu Tim’s pantheon of amulets, the Wat Pai Lom series edition, which is also now the top sought after series blessed by Luang Phu Tim. We highly recommend both editions as a wise choice of Sacred Amulets, that have a Grand Future and Highly Ascending Trajectory ahead of them.

Pra Somdej 4000 Nuea Bai Lan – 3 Takrut & Powder filled – Luang Por Pae Wat Pikul Tong.
Fourth series of Pra Niyom Master Class Amulets in the ‘Pan’ (Thousands) Editions, which began with the Luang Por Pae Pan (1000) series, followed by the 2000 Series (Sorng Pan), the 3000 (Sam Pan) series, this 4000 (See Pan), series, which was followed by the Pra Somdej Luang Por Pae 5000 (Ha Pan) edition.

Each edition became more popular rarer, and more expensive as a new series was released, but all if the five series are now considered both ultra rare, as well as being viewed as classic Master Class Amulets, which carry great prestige, and a respectably high price category, fitting of an amulet of its status. 

It is indeed a rare opportunity indeed these days to find an example of Pra Somdej Pae 4000 in such Pristine Condition still available. Black Bai Lan Muan Sarn Sacred Powders are less commonly seen than the white powders and the Rainbow Ongk Kroo models.

 Luang Por Pae is respected for his rigid practice and purity of trajectory in his lifetime of practice. His amulets are of the finest grade of make and design and are considered top amulets that are equally attractive as many of their peers which cost many tens of times the price. They are hence considered to be highly attractive collection pieces because of the fact that they are so highly rated and regarded for their power, beauty and future speculative value increase.

TongThey are also known by those who study well, to be approaching the point where they are disappearing due to both Thai and International collectors & Devotees snapping them up as they dwindle and prices slowly but surely increase in tune with the dwindling numbers of amulets still left to be found available. 

Two Takrut, and Sacred Powders are inserted into three hollow holes in the base of the amulet. One Takrut in inserted into the top edge.

The Protective Kong Grapan Chadtri and Klaew Klaad power of this edition, which Luang Por Pae distributed to the Military during the Vietnam War, to keep them safe from danger and harm, has made this particular Pra Pid Ta one of the most popular of the Thai Amulet Pantheon.

It is truly amazing that this amulet despite its status, is still not holding a high price as much as others of the same status do such as Pra Pid Ta Luang Phu To Wat Pradoo Chimplee whose amulets now rise into the tens of thousands of dollars, and the Pra Pid Ta Luang Phu Bun of Wat Klang Bang Kaew, which also cost tens of thousands of dollars (US).

One day for certain this amulet will reach the same price value as those equally legendary amulets. which have arrived at the Millionaire Status earlier, but which do not necessarily have any more power or sacred value as this most inimitable, famous and certainly powerful protection against physical harm and danger.

 Luang Por Pae, or, better known as Somdej Sangkarach Pae, is one of the last half century’s most reverent and long-standing respected monks of the royal procession of stateesteemed monks, Who has excelled in both his behavioural practice as well as his academic studies and adepts applied practice of Vipassana Kammathana in the Thai Tudong Forest tradition.

The amulets of this great master, have been seen to dwindle from the public amulet markets, which is due to the fact that not only Thai people have been reverie and holding his Amulets over the last decade or so up, rather that all around Southeast Asia and even as far as western world, people have been snapping up and hiding and stashing away his Amulets like treasure that may never be found again, which is indeed going to be true pretty soon.

This has resulted in an accelerated depletion of his Amulets, despite the fact that classic Amulets made according to the official formulas, such as the Pra Somdej amulet, are making numbers of up to 84,000 per edition they have still managed to begin to disappear from the public view. They are now not only becoming classics but also extreme rarities and the next decade can expect to see these Amulets becoming immensely difficult to seek out.
