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).

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.

The Pra Pid Ta Wat of Sapan Sung Temple, is a Dtamra (legendary series) that spans over various generations of abbots, all of whom have managed to gain equal fame and high repote for their Pra Pid Ta amulets, all of which preserve the style and methods of the original Wicha made so famous by Luang Phu Iam.

The Pra Pid Ta Wat of Sapan Sung Temple, is a Dtamra (legendary series) that spans over various generations of abbots, all of whom have managed to gain equal fame and high repute for their Pra Pid Ta amulets, all of which preserve the style and methods of the original Wicha made so famous by Luang Phu Iam.

The Pra Pid Ta old amulets of Wat Sapan Sung is known in two major Pim (models), namely the Pim Chalud (Blind Man model), and the Pim Dtapap (Terrapin model). Mostly the amulets would be covered in Lacquer, with some very few exhibits in pure powders. Others can be found to have had the lacquer cleaned off them by devotees in later years. It is known that Luang Phu Glin, one of the Great Masters of the Wicha Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung, was allergic to Lacquer, and so his versions never had lacqer on them and were pure powders (except when a devotee applied the lacquer himself after receiving the amulet). Luang Por Tong Sukh and Luang Phu Iam however, would more often than not dip the Pra Pid Ta in lacquer as a protective layer.

All masters have followed the same design and method of lacquering, resulting in the amulets of each master being very similar in design, and mostly can only be differentiated by estimation of the age of the lacquer and Muan Sarn Sacred Powders in order to determine which Generation of Master the amulet came from.

Luang Por Tong Sukh Intasaro (Pra Kroo Nantagij Sope), was the abbot of Wat Sapan Sung during the years 2491 BE to 2525 BE, after Luang Phu Glin, and Luang Phu Iam. Much like his predecessors, he continued to preserve and nurture the Wicha Pra Pid Ta already made famous from this Temple by the great Luang Phu Iam, and Luang Phu Glin, and produced his own editions, using the Wicha bestowed upon him from his Kroo Ba Ajarn before him.

Luang Por Tong Sukh was born on the 11th March 2446 BE in the village of Nong Phai Hlueang in Petchburi and was the son of Mr. Kong and Mrs. Pae, and was the youngest of 5 sibliings. At age 11, he went to be educated at the temple of Wat Nong Wa in Petchburi, with Pra Ajarn Joy, Ajarn Say, and Ajarn Nim. When he reached age 13, he left with his uncle to help work to assist his family, and moved to work in Rachaburi.

Below; Luang Por Tong Sukh of Wat Sapan Sung

Luang Por Tong Sukh of Wat Sapan Sung

At age 20, he was called into the military service with the Infantry in Petchburi. After he finished his military service, he applied for a job in the Police force, and was employed as a Police Lieutenant in Petchburi for two years. After this, he was sent to work in the Southern Province of Naratiwat, and later to other Porvinces like Satun, Ban Pong, Rachaburi, Chayapum and Surin. He was eventually sent back to work in Petchburi, and after one single year working there, he began to develop immense boredom with the ways of the world, and left the Police force.

He ordained into the Sangha in the year 2470 at Wat Na Prohm in Petchburi. Pra Kroo Pit (Abbot) was his Upachaya Ordaining Officer, and Pra Ajarn Phong was his Gammawajajarn Prompt, and Pra Ajarn Up was his Anusawanajarn Witness. He stayed at Wat Nong Wa for one year, and then Pra Ajarn Peng of Wat Sapan Sung who passed by traveling on Tudong, invited him to join him to go stay at Wat Ta Gwian in Pak Kred in Nontaburi. Luang Por Tong Sukh stayed here for three years and then moved on to go study Pariyatti Dhamma at Wat Sapan Sung in the year 2474 BE.

At that time Pra Kroo Sopana Sasanagij (Luang Phu Glin) was the abbot, and his friend Ajarn Peng was the Pariyatti Dhamma teacher. In the year 2476 BE, Luang Phu Sukh gained his Doctorate in Dhamma studies, and Luang Phu Glin gave him the job of teaching Pariyatti Dhamma instead of Luang Por Peng.

Luang Por Tong Sukh then at this time began to study and practice the Dtamra Saiyawaet Grimoire of Buddha Magic and Occult Sorcery, and the various Kata which were pertinent to the Wicha of the Temple and Masters of Wat Sapan Sung, such as the Inscriptions for Takrut, the methods of making Pong Lob Yantra Powders, the Wicha of making Pra Pid Ta amulets, and Holy Water. He received all of these Wicha and Ritual methods from Luang Phu Glin, then the Abbot and Guardian Sentinel of the Wicha, passed down from Luang Phu Iam.

In the year 2482 BE, Luang Phu Glin passed away, and Luang Por Tong Sukh was given the emergency status of temporary Abbot until 2490 BE, after which he was officially instated by the Sangha Comittee as Abbot with full documentation and Royal decree. He performed his duties and continued the work of Luang Phu Iam and Luang Phu Glin, and was now the new Master and Guardian of the Wicha Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung, as the third important master of the lineage Wicha. In the year 2508 he was awarded status of Upachaya.

Luang Por Tong Sukh administrated the temple with great prowess, and brought many improvements to the enclave, and saw to the needs of the devotees. His kindness and strength of practice was legendary with the local devotees, for his strict adherence to the Dhamma Vinaya Buddhist Canon, and maintaining his purity as a Buddhist Monk.

His guidance to the younger Samanera novice monks was excellent, which led to the temple having only well practiced Monks residing, which brought even more reverence from the local community of devotees, for the temple was seen as a true place of practice, with only pure monks residing.

 

Luang Por Tong Sukh guided the fold and took care of the temple and its Bhikkhus with complete self renunciation for many years, serving the congregation, until he passed away on the 7th April 2525 BE at 8:00 am, at the age of 79 Years Old.

Luang Por Tong Sukh made the Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung throughout his trajectory, for devotees would come in throngs every day to seek out amulets, and so one can find Pra Pid Ta of this master coming from a range of time periods, ranging between about 2490 BE, up to his passing in 2525 BE, spanning a period of over 35 Years of amulet making.

 

His early era amulets will hence have similar appearance in ageing characteristics as those amulets from the latter Era of his Mentor Luang Phu Glin. It is hence a point of study to recognise the ageing characteristics of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders and Lacquers of the Pra Pid Ta Wat sapan Sung amulets, to separate a late Era Luang Phu Iam amulet from an early Era Luang Phu Glin, and a late Era Luang Phu Glin amulet from an early Era Luang Por Tong Sukh. To master this aspect of amulet study of the Pra Pid Ta Wat sapan Sung, is to Master the Dtamra of amulets of three Generations of Masters in its entirety.

 

Luang Por Tong Sukh’s amulets are manyfold, ranging from his famous Pra Pid Ta, to Rian Kanajarn Monk Coins, and many talismanic charms such as Takrut, Look Om, and Pha Yant. Amongst his most preferred amulets are of course the Pra Pid Ta, and the Roop Lor Luang Phu Iam, and Roop Lor Luang Phu Glin Loi Ongk Statuettes (released in 2500 BE). Other preferred amulets are the Rian Sema Block Ueam, the Rian Luang Phu Glin, and Rian Khaw Hlam Dtad, as well as various other Rian Sema type coins. Some of his amulets can fetch thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars for rare preferred block presses.

 

The Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Tong Sukh is a very poreferred and popular amulet, for its undisputed powers, which have been repeatedly confirmed over the years with so many stories in the newspapers about miraculous events happening to devotees who wore the Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung of Luang Por Tong Sukh. Luang Por Tong Sukh made the Pra Pid Ta exactly as passed down to him by Luang Phu Glin and his predecessor Luang Phu Iam.

Below; Luang Phu Glin, of Wat Sapan Sung

 

It is said that the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Tong Sukh is just as powerful and can be used instead of Pra Pid Ta by Luang Phu Glin or Luang Phu Iam, and the amulets of all three Masters are collected with equal fervency and preference by devotees, the only difference between the amulets of these three masters being the age and the price. Luang Por Tong Sukh would use old powders which were passed down from Luang Phu Gling, which Luang Phu Glin in turn had received from Luang Phu Iam.

It is said that Luang Por Tong Sukh made amulets from about the year 2490 BE onwards. Both the Pim Chalud and the Pim Tapap models are very highly revered and sought after, with his most preferred and rarest models being the Pim Sader Jun, and the Pim Sorng Sader (2 belly buttons), and the Pim Tapap (Terrapin Model).

 

The Pim Sader Jun is very rare, made in the year 2495 BE, and fetches very high prices on the marketplace, starting at about 1000$ and upwards. However, it is a fallicy that the Pim Sader Jun was only pressed in 2495 BE, as Luang Por Tong Sukh kept pressing the Sader Jun amulets with the very same block press until it broke sometime between the years 2510 BE and 2520 BE. The Pim sader Jun and Pim Sorng Sader remain his rarest and most highly valued models, fetching extremely high prices with collectors.

 

The Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung are highly renowned for their powers of Maha Pokasap Metta Maha Niyom Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri, to bring great wealth and protection to the wearer.

Pra Gleep Bua Amulet with Yant Trinisinghae Luang Phu To Wat Pradoo Chimplee

The Pra Pratan Gleep Bua Hlang Yant Trinisinghae Muan Sarn Sacred Powders amulet, was released after Buddha Abhiseka Blessing Ceremony at Wat Pradoo Chimplee in the year 2521 BE, blessed by the Great Luang Phu To who presided over the Grand Blessing Ceremony. This edition recieved 3 months of immersion in Holy Prayer Water with blessings from Luang Phu To throughout the whole Trimester. This model is rare for being in the much rarer Pong Gesorn Gae ANam Man oily pollens sacred clay.

The amulet was released in two ‘Pim’ (versions); Pim Yai (large, 22,875 amulets made), and Pim Lek (small, 20,805 amulets made). This amulet is in perfect condition, without any flaws or wear and tear, making it very eligible for show in competition.

This amulet is considered to be one of the more easily reachable (affordable) amulets of the Pantheon of Famous Classics, and is very popular amulet with middle and upper middle-class devotees of Luang Phu To, who seek an authentically blessed amulet of esteem and respectable value from this master, but that won’t necessarily cost them the deeds to their house to be able to afford.  The Sacred Yant Trinisinghae is Embossed on the rear face of the Amulet for Metta Mahaniyom and Maha Lap Blessings.

The amulet is a Pim Yai large version measuring 3.5 x 2.5 Cm,, and is in pristine condition. The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders are made from Puttakun Yantra Powders of Luang Phu To, with Gesorn Pollens and Incenses. The powerful magic and spellcasting abilities of Luang Phu To are of course one of the major influential factors as to why his amulets have become such priceless Masterpieces, and his special Muan Sarn Sacred Powders are another highly influential aspect of their popularity and fame. The Yant Trinisinghae was often inscribed on Yantra foils for devotees who would bring a foil with them and Luang Phu would inscribe it. The devotees would then take the foil home for Bucha, or roll it into a Takrut to wear as an amulet.

This Yantra was first used on the rear face of an official amulet edition, with the first edition Rian Run Raek Guru Monk Coins. The Yant Trinisinghae is not only powerful for Maha Lap and Serm Duang (improve fate and destiny), but also for being highly effective against Black Magick, Ghosts and Demons.

Luang Phu To is said to have been able to grab the Sincana cord which monks use to attach to amulets in blessing ceremonies, and sense immediately which monks along the line of the Sincana cords had psychic powers, and which ones didn’t. Luang Phu To Wat Pradoo Chimplee performing Nang Prok Meditation for Empowerment of Amulets

This resulted in Luang Phu always choosing the best most powerful Masters to invite to attend his empowerment ceremonies to assist in the Blessing of amulets and Buddha Images. Luang Phu To remains to this day one of the top 10 Guru Masters in the recorded History of Thai Buddhist Amulet making, and most certainly one of the top 5 Monks of recent History, on an equal Par with the Great Luang Phu Tim (Wat Laharn Rai).His amulets belong to the Master-Class status category, and carry immense status in the world of the amulet appreciation society, for their Authentic Sacred Power, and the Purity of the Monk who Blessed them.

The amulets of Luang Phu To are famed and revered by devotees around the country and around the whole world, for the proven history of Metta Mahaniyom Maha Lap Klaew Klaad Kaa Khaay power to bless the devotee with lucky fortunes, safety, success and prosperity. Luang Phu To began to make Muan Sarn Sacred Powders amulets first in the year 2470 BE, using the main ingredient of Pong Lob, which is the residue chalks fallen from the inscription of five rounds of 108 Sacred yantra spells, to create five different concentrates of Sacred Powders.

These five powders are of course known as; Pong Bpathamang, Pong Ittijae, Pong Puttakun, Pong Trinisinghae, and Pong Maharach. It is also known that Luang Phu To would use broken up amulets from Wat Plab, and also broken up pieces of Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram of the great Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri, are known to be present within the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of Luang Phu To’s amulets.

Other Muan Sarn used for the amulets include Pong Puttakun from Por Tan Klai (Wat Hongs, Thonburi), and of course Luang Phu To would bless the amulets in Nam Montr Prayer Water, using a Clay Holy Water bowl in his Kuti Hut, with a Dragon design on the bowl.

He would immerse the amulets in the holy water bowl, and When devotees would donate flowers to Luang Phu, he float the flowers in the prayer water bowl and use the offering to empower the amulets further. This in fact, is one of the reasons that some amulets have different holy water stains on their surfaces than others, due to the different flowers Luang Phu would immerse in the holy water bowl where the amulets were soaking.

Luang Phu would empower the amulets for the time of the Rainy season retreat (3 months), and repeatedly empower and bless them throughout this time. Some amulets were also released without immersion in prayer water. Of the 28,875 Pim Yai amulets made, 10,000 of them were donated to Princess Julaporn, to distribute as a gift to the people who made merits donating to build the Sirirat Hospital.

The Pra Pratan Gleep Bua Pim Yai and Pim Lek amulets are very popular with Devotees, for they are made from precisely the same Muan Sarn Sacred Powders as was used for the Pra Pid Ta Jumbo 2 Traimas Masterclass edition, which can cost up to even 40 times the price of a Pra Pratan Gleep Bua. It is hence obvious why this amulet is such a popular amulet with the devotee of Luang Phu This Votive Tablet is an Absolute Rarity and Eternal Classic, and extremely sought after spiritual item.The perfect choice for aesthetic beauty, spiritual value, and magic power, and top choice for the Serious Collector.

This beautiful amulet is most definitely a very fine acquisition, as a Sacred Votive Tablet of Pra Niyom Preferred Classic Category, that has been well looked after and maintained in its original state, and is a very well-kept amulet, that is worthy of competition entry for its clear features.

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.

Look Om Maha Gan amulet by Luang Por Kong Wat Bang Gaporm

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.

Pra Prajam Wan Amulet Luang Phu To Wat Pradoo Chimplee Traimas Edition Bailan Powders

Ancient Amulet Classics  amulet blog series presents The Pra Pim Pra Put Prajam Wan Hlang Yant Trinisinghae Birthday Buddha amulet for your study. The Pra Pong Pim pra Prajam Wan Hlang Yant Trinisinghaem is one more sacred and rare Pim of the pantheon of amulets of Luang Phu To (Wat Pradoo Chimplee), which is very seldom seen, and was part of the 2521 – 2523 BE three year Traimas empowerment ceremony, which came to be Luang Phu To’s most famous blessing ceremony, and which spurned some of the most preferred classic Pra Niyom category amulets within the scene.

The Pra Pim Pra Put Prajam Wan amulet was created by Luang Phu To in the shape of a Bodhi Leaf, inspired by the time he went to India and meditated under the Bodhi tree where the Buddha is said to have become enlightened. only 10,412 amulets were made in two different kinds of Muan Sarn Sacred Powders; Nuea Bailan, and Nuea Gesorn.

This amulet is shaped in the form of a Bodhi Leaf, and pressed from Black Bailan Powders, mixed with Gesorn Pollens, and has the image of a Buddha in Meditation on the front face (Thursday Buddha), with the sacred Yant Trinisinghae on the rear face, which is reputed to be one of the most powerful sacred Yantra spells in the Dtamra Yant 108.

Luang Por To, of Wat Pradoo Chimplee, was a Master who gained the respect and reverence of the Royal Family, and especially his Majesty King Bhumipol Adulyadej (Rama 9), and whose attaimnents both in the academic field of Pariyatti and of the on hands practice of Patipatā, were exceptional.

His powers and blessings were, and still are considered amongst the most powerful, along with the other greats such as Luang Phu Sukh ( Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao), Luang Por Vheun (Wat Mab Kha) Luang Por Parn (Wat Bang Nom Kho), Luang Phu Tim (Wat Laharn Rai), Luang Por Jong (Wat Na Tang Nork) and so many others.

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.


Khun Phaen Kru Tap Khaw 200 Year OId Hiding Place Amulet of Somdej Dto

Presenting an eminent and extremely rare Pim from the highly preferred and sought after Kru Tap Khaw amulet pantheon; The Pra Khun Phaen Pim Ha Liam Kru Wat Tap Khaw Sukhothai, of Somdej Pra Puttajarn Dto Prohmrangsri (Wat Rakang Kositaram). An amulet that is older than Somdej Dto’s Masterwork, the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang, which dates at about 40 years younger than the Khun Phaen Tap Khaw.

The Khun Phaen Kru Wat Tap Khaw, is considered an ‘Ongk Kroo’ (teacher model), for reference study of the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang amulet, and is evaluated as such for the following reasons 1. The amulet was almost certainly made by Somdej Dto Prohmrangsri, 2. This amulet is visibly older than the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang, and hence is a good teacher as to how sacred clay that is more than 150 – 200 years old should look under the eye loupe. And, 3. The Muan Sarn Sacred Clay is almost identical in its appearance and ageing characteristics to the clay found in the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang amulet.

Khun Phaen Kru Tap Khaw 200 Year OId Hiding Place Amulet of Somdej Dto

These amulets are compared to the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang of Somdej Dto Prohmrangsri , but are much more affordable in the current time. However, the Pra Kru Wat Tap Khaw series hiding place amulets are now becoming extremely rare, and have entered the Master-Class Pra Niyom Category. These amulets are yet another priceless possession of the devotee and collector of the Pra Dtragun Somdej Dto (Pantheon of amulets that are directly or indirectly associated with Somdej Dto in their making).

The Kru Wat Tap Khaw was discovered in 2480 by a Mr. Dteng (Surname not known), who found them whilst digging around the temple grounds. The Kru was found to have amulets buried which were made during three different Eras of History;

The first era was created in the Sukhothai Era, and were made from fine Nuea Pong Puttakun powders. A large number of different models were found, such as the Pra Pratan Porn, the Pra Ruang Nang, Pra Rueang Yern, Pra Lila. The amulets of this era have a creamy milky white clay hardened like stone, extremely similar in Muan Sarn to the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram and to the amulets of Wat Plab.

The amulets of the second era found were from the early Ratanakosin period (somewhere around the time of King Rama 3), and are hence roughly of an age between 150 and 200 years old. This group of amulets were also made from Nuea Pong Puttakun, which have an almost identical appearance with the sacred clay of the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri.

Below; Gallery of  Close up Macro Images of the Features and Aspects of the Muan Sarn Clay of the Khun Phaen Kru Tap Khae amulet

A very large number of different kinds of amulet designs were found in this batch, some in greater numbers than others. Amongst the many Pim found in this batch were the Pra Luang Por Dto, Pra Khun Phaen Ha Liam, Pra Khun Phaen Khai Pa Seek, Pra Sam, Pra Narai Song Pern, and Pra Ruang, which were all obviously made in reverence to the previous periods of Thai Buddhist Arts of History.

When all aspects of these amulets are considered and the amulets themselves are examined in all their aspects, it is the common conclusion with experts that the Great Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri of Wat Rakang Kositaram must have played a part in their making. Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri is known to have hidden amulets in temples around the country, mostly in Central Thailand and in the North, and the amulets themself do not differ in ‘Nuea Ha’ (content), to the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram. This makes the amulets of course a perfect reference study teacher model (Ongk Kroo) for training the eyes to recognise a true ancient Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram amulet.

These amulets have also been found in the Kru hiding place of the Kru Pra Yern Luang Por Dto of Wat Intrawiharn (Wat Bang Khun Prohm) of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri, which strengthens the evidence that Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsriwas responsible for their making. Below is a video in HD with an unbiased narrative on the Kru Wat Tap Khaw amulets, given by Ajarn Spencer Littlewood

The amulets found in the Kru which came from the third era, were made and hidden during the time of King Rama 6, reaching up to the time of His Majesty Rama 9. This amulets of this batch were found in many forms and reminiscent or straight replicas of amulets of the great Masters of those times, such as the Pra Pim of Luang Por Ao, and Luang Phu Phueak, of Wat Ging Gaew.

Khun Phaen Kru Wat Tap Khaw 200 Year OId Amulet

Khun Phaen Kru Wat Tap Khaw

The Muan Sarn Sacred Powder clay of this third group of amulets, do not have the same agédness or appearance to its substance as the previous two batches mentioned, and have a much younger appearance in the features of the sacred clay. Some amulets even copied the Pim Song (models) found in the previous two eras of amulets found in the Kru, which causes suspicion about this third batch.

Because of the much younger age and appearance of this batch which was buried at a later era, and the replicas found in the batch, confusion arose, causing the whole Kru Wat Tap Khaw find to come under scrutiny and suspicion about their true age, and for quite a long time the amulets were overlooked, due to the fact that few people realised that the amulets of the two other eras were indeed much more ancient.

Khun Phaen Kru Tap Khaw 200 Year OId Hiding Place Amulet of Somdej Dto Prohmrangsri Wat Rakang

The educated collector and student hence must have selectiveness when examining the amulets of the Kru Wat Tap Khaw, because of the three different batches found, which have similar Pim Song in all of them. An experienced collector should hence use his experience to estimate the age of the clay of the amulet to define which of the three batches/eras the amulet came from (especially between second and third eras).

One does not however need to have immense expertise to tell the difference, because the second era amulets (the ones assumed to be made by Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri), have a much older appearance, and a much harder stone-like clay. In the case of the Kru Wat Tap Khaw amulets, one should place higher value on recognising the age of the clay, than recognising the Pim Song (design model), because the model is found in more than one era batch. In short, the designs were replicated in all batches, but the age of each amulet cannot be replicated, and is the definitive measure.

The inner circle aficionados of this series of Hiding Place Amulets have various beliefs depending on which group of aficionados;
The main group assume that it was the Great Khrua Ta Saeng of Wat Mani Chonlakhant in Lopburi who made the first batch during the time or Rama the 3rd. Khrua Ta Saeng was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of the Great Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri, who encountered him on Tudong forest wandering in the Ayuttaya region.

Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri of Wat Rakang Kositaram

Somdej Dto with the famous Pra Somdej Gang Pla amulet of the Kru Tap Khaw Hiding Place Find

This was during the time that Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri went missing from Wat Rakang Kositaram and spent 15 Years in the forests around the Northern regions of Thailand and could not be found, and it was during this time that Somdej Dto received the Wicha Pra Somdej and other methods of making Sacred Powders from Khrua Ta Saeng, and Kata Akom for subduing Maras, Ghosts and Demonic Spirits.

Khrua Ta Saeng liked to make amulets in the ancient Sukhothai and Ayuttaya periodic styles of artistic interpretation. He would make many kinds of ancient amulets and hide them in Kru in temples around both Sukhothai and Ayuttaya Regions. One very famous and recognisable amulet of Khrua Ta Saeng is the Hlang Hoo Hai, which has two holes in the back face of the amulet. The first era batch of the Kru Wat Tap Khaw amulet find has also examples of Pra Luang Por Dto Hlang Hoo Hai, which is very rare and highly preferred.

Khun Phaen Kru Tap Khaw Amulet

The rarest amulet of all of the first era batch of Wat Tap Khaw from Khrua Ta Saeng is the Pra Somdej Pim Gang Pla, theTri Gaay (Pra Sam), the Pra Khun Phaen Ha Liam, Pra Khun Phaen Khai Pa Seek, and the Pra Narai Song Pern.

There is written documentation form Luang Phu Kam of Wat Amarint, who was a Gaeji Ajarn who lived at the same time as, and who was a close friend of Somdej Dto, that amulets had been made by these masters. It is written that Luang Phu Kam had asked Somdej Pra Puttajarn Dto to make some sacred powder amulets in the style and fashion that was known and popular to the people of Ayuttaya, Sukhothai and Lopburi.

The very same models (Pim Song) of amulet which were found in the Kru Wat Tap Khaw are mentioned in this documentation as having been made by Somdej Dto, and so there is little doubt remaining in the origins of the second era batch of the Kru Wat Tap Khaw.

Below; The written documentation from Luang Phu Kam regarding Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri’s involvement in the Kru Wat Tap Khaw amulets.

The Kru Wat Tap Khaw first and second era batch amulets are most certainly the best remaining chance to own an original amulet of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri, as well as being a perfect study reference pice, as Ongk Kroo teacher for the study of the Muan Sarn clay of the Immortal Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri, Wat Rakang Kositaram.


Pra Pruhnang Klueab - Luang Por An of Wat Prayat

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Khun Pantagij Rachadech

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.

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.

Luang Phu Sukh Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao

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.

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 Roop Muean Pim Jan Loi Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai

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.

Roop Muean Jantr Loi Luang Phu Tim

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.

Pra Pong Jantr Loi and Pra Khun Phaen Luang Phu Tim

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).





The Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn of Luang Phu Tim, is perhaps the most legendary and famous of all Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn in History, and is the prized possession of the high end collector, and devotee. The Look Om Luang Phu Tim is renowned for its Maha Lap, Metta Maha Niyom Maha Sanaeh anmd Maha Pokasap Power, to increase wealth and bring lucky fortunes and mercy charm, as well as providing immense Klaew Klaad and Kong Grapan Chadtri power to protect.

Below we can see a Highly preferred early-Era Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Pasom Gesa Ta Bronze Wanich Met Klang Niyom (2 Cm diameter medium size ball) – this exhibit is an especially attractive Look Om, highly eligible for entry in competition. This early edition exhibit is rather more highly preferred than the Wat Po Sampant edition of 2517 BE, and of a much earlier edition, with richer Muan Sarn Sacred Powders.

Look Om Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai Pim Klang

The all-time classic Original Wat Laharn Rai Sacred Powder Ball of the Great Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai, is one of the most legendary amulets of all time, and one of the most preferred amulets in Thai Buddhist Amulet Collecting.

The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai, 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 Pong Prai Kumarn powders famously contain Pong Gakoke Dek powdered skull bone of a Hoeng Prai Kumarn.

 

The Look Om came into existence because, after the pressing of Luang Phu Tim’s Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, Pim Yai, and Pim Lek amulets, there was much of the Muan Sarn Paste which had become too dry for it to be pressed into the finely detailed block press molds of the Pra Khun Phaen amulets.

And so this remainder of Pong Prai Kumarn Powder Muan Sarn, was then rolled into wishing ball amulets, as the powders were just too powerful and Sacred to dispense with without making them into amulets. And so it was, that the famous Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn came into existence.

 

The Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn of Luang Phu Tim is considered by most people to be the most famous Look Om Amulet of All Time. The Original Look Om of Luang Phu Tim 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 the Look Om With only in the editions he released through his own temple.

Other temple releases of his Look Om (i.e. Wat Po Sampant and others), 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 his own direct releases.

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.

The second reason for the Wat Laharn Rai Niyom versions being the most highly revered and preferred is more of a speculative one, which means they tend to win over other editions in competition, and are 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.

The Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim amulet, has has been one of 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 in any amulet emporium, except for the most elite showrooms, and at elevated prices.

However, the Look Om is perhaps the most affordable of the Old Classics of Luang Phu Tim when we consider the prices at which his Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn and other master Class Buddha Amulets demand, for which reason, the Look Om Luang Phu Tim is the most highly popular amulet with devotees who do not possess the finances to afford a Pra Khun Phaen Luang Phu Tim, which can cost many thousands of dollars, and even tens of thousands of dollars.


The Sacredness is equal to the 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 more highly priced Millionaire Amulets of his pantheon, and is one of the recognition factors used to identify his amulets..

This of course makes the Look Om the most affordable way to obtain an authentic study material to train the eyes as to the appearance of the Muan Sarn and Surface textures of his other Classics, to train oneself in recognising the authentic amulet, before risking thousands and tens of thousands of dollars on a Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim.

Hence, the Look Om 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 the Look Om Luang Phu Tim as a sound investment, and a rare chance to obtain and be the proud owner of an authentic Wat Laharn Rai release model of the Eternal Classic Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim.

Luang Phu used the Bronze Wanich used in this Look Om, to also paint the famous Nang Paya Plai Diaw, Nang Paya Plai Koo, and the Classic Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Amulets. This makes it a perfect study piece, a Perfect sacred Amulet for Bucha to receive certain Magical Power, and a perfect showpiece, three excellent reasons all rolled into one (no Pun intended).

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, which History has proved time and time again to be one of the most powerful and famous amulets in Thai Amulet History.

Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Early Era Luang Phu Tim

The making of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders Look Om 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.

Despite the fact that the Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai carried a much lower price than his famous Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, the power of the amulets is just the same as the Pra Khun Phaen, with the only difference being the lower price. The look om wwere always made using the remaining Muan Sarn Sacred Powders after the limited edition Pra Khun Phaen were all pressed. Any extra Muan Sarn would always be rolled into Look Om, and empowered by Luang Phu Tim in this form.

The Look Om is hence the 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 afford the price of the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim.

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.

Below you can see another authentic exhibit (small pim lek) in HD video from a slightly later edition (circa 2517), for comparison of the features and aspects of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders.

Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai

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.
