A closer look, with Macro Photography at the features of the famous classic ancient amulet Pra Wanta Sema 2463 BE, of Luang Phu To (Wat Pradoo Chimplee).

Made from broken pieces of the original Ancient Wat Plab amulets (from which the original Wanta Sema design was taken).

This edition was released in 2463 BE. Classed within the classic pantheon of the first ever 13 Somdej Type amulets of Luang Phu To, which is one of his Great Pantheons of Millionaire Class Amulets of Ultimate Esteem and International Fame.

The amulet is seen by some as the Sayasana Buddha (Reclining), and others pray to it as an image of King Rama 1 praying to the temple wall at the Royal palace, with Lotus flower in hands (part of ritual ordination), as he was ordained for the traditional practice of Thai Males to become a Buddhist Monk for a time.

In those days, the Strategic Infantry Command Regiment were the main sponsors of the amulets created for Luang Phu To to bless, and this design was commissioned for Luang Phu To to press and bless, in the 2463 Edition.

The amulet is reminiscent of the original Pra Wanta Sema Wat Plab by Somdej Pra Sangkarach (Suk). Pra Wanta Sema Wat Plab by Somdej Pra Sangkarach (Suk) has some discussion about the image and what or who it represents. The most common legends say, that it depicts a sleeping Buddha in the Saiyasana posture.

But those who are more well studied believe the image to be a depiction of His Majesty the King Rama 1, holding the lotus of ordination, as a Monk and praying to the temple wall, before ordaining into the Sangha for the traditional period which Kings must ordain for. This is most likely the true meaning of the image.

Wat Plab is one of the 10 official temples of the Dtamra Pra Somdej for its Muan Sarn Sacred Powders which belong within the Dtamra of Pra Somdej of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri Wat Rakang Kositaram.

A clear visual close up of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders can serve the student well to examine and take note of the many different ingredients, and the appearance of the surface, its dryness, porosity, and the secrets of the interior content (where cracks reveal the inner substance).

This type of clear-to-recognise features make the amulet a ‘Pra Tae Doo Ngaay’ (Easy to see as Real). The surface of the amulet has a crinkled effect to it, where the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders have dried, and shrink inwards closing the gaps between the particles of powder, and tiny cracks have formed all over the surface as the amulet has shrunk from within over time, as it dries and hardens.

The rear face is always the most important surface area for study once the front face features (Pim) have been confirmed to one’s satisfaction, and authenticated.

Examination of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders and surface features of the rear face, allows a much more accurate and detailed study of the content of the Muan Sarn, without obstruction of any design to obscure sight of the uniform raw surface features.

The rear face surface shows a fine gossamer layer of mildew formation, which ranges in tonality from black, to brown, to light gray.

This is also an important aspect of examining the ‘Kraap’ mildew on the surface of ancient amulets; Namely, that most authentic amulets will have a non-uniform surface tonality to the Kraap Kru Mildew, and that Fake amulets, tend to have a Uniform colour and tonality to the surface mildew.

This is because it is almost impossible to spray a fake mildew onto an amulet, and make it have hundreds of different colours and tones to it, which is something that only happens with natural aging and atmospheric weather changes over many years of time.

Fake mildew is more uniform, and the true authentic mildew is far more complex in its appearance. Please take note of this when examining amulets, and use the ‘Kraap Kru’ mildew as one of your authentication reference tools.

Once one has examined front and rear face of an amulet, one should then continue on to peruse and examine the edges of the amulet, which will reveal its aging.

One should peruse the cracks arisen through contraction, one is able to determine if the front and rear face surface appearance fits with what the edges reveal, as far as atmospheric changes, and under which conditions the amulet has been worn or kept over the years.

For example, if the edges reveal that the amulet has contracted over a long time of constant dryness, but the surface of the front and rear reveal moisture exposure, then something would be amiss wouldn’t it?

If the front face and rear face say the amulet has experienced multiple changes of moist to dry atmospheres, then the edges should also state the same. Of course, this is not an easy art to train the eye in, and you need to examine many amulets over many years to be able to see what the expert sees.

Wat Plab has always been a temple that Luang Phu To was afilliated with and whose Muan Sarn Sacred Powders he always used in the making of his famously priceless amulets. The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders for the Pra Wanta Sema Luang Phu To, are indeed also composed of mainly broken pieces of original Wat Plab amulets, along with the other Sacred Ingredients which Luang Phu To would ubiquitously mix into the Muan Sarn, for all his amulets.

Wat Plab amulets are a sacred powder type amulet using a mixture of ground sea shells, pollens and flowers, incense powders, temple wall bricks. The mixture used by Somdej Pra Sangkarach (Suk) was the basic formula of Pra Somdej made before any other ever, and is thus the keystone of Pra Somdej amulet making, and the origin of the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang.

The Pim Wanta Sema 2463 Luang Phu To was released in the classic famous 13 Pra Somdej First Edition. The 13 Famous Pim, were made by Luang Phu To with the greatest passion and Highest Effort through Pure Intention, and had the intention to make them as Truly powerful as was possible.

He spent a long time with much effort to find the rarest, most powerful and sacred herbs, woods and relic ingredients for the Muan Sarn used in the making of the Sacred Powders used for his Amulet.

Most Pim were pressed by Luang Phu himself with his own hand, but he had help in assembling the Muan Sarn and many menial tasks from the Samaneras and the Lay Masters of Wat Plab temple. This is of course part of the reason that the Amulets of Luang Phu To possess Sacred Powders of Wat Plab in them too.

The Great Masters of Wat Plab in Bangkok Yai revealed their secrets to Luang Phu, about the mixing of Muan Sarn. It is a hardly known inner secret, that, all of the Great Masters with great Wicha, passed through Wat Plab, to receive the Wicha and secrets of the Mastery of the Pra Piti Haa (5 Piti Jhana Control).

They revealed to him the secrets of making ‘Pong Lob’ Sacred Powders, according to the Dtamra Pra Somdej of Ajarn Saeng, who is reputed to have taught the Dtamra of Pra Somdej making to Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto_ Prohmrangsri (Wat Rakang Kositaram).

It is Pra Ajarn Saeng, who some groups believe is the True Discoverer of the Hin Sila stone with the Dtamra Somdej hidden within it. The debate on this issue may continue forever, for proof is unfound.

One other major base ingredient of the Muan sarn used in this first edition of Luang Phu To’s Amulet Trajectory, was a type of ‘Pong Wised’ (Special powder) or ‘Pong Puttakun), which was colected over many years by Luang Phu To, as he wandered on Forest Tudong. Often he would travel together with Luang Por Sodh (Wat Pak Nam Pasi Jaroen), and another Famous Monk of that time whose name has been lost from all documentation.

Luang Phu To of Wat Pradoo Chimplee was one of the greatest Masters of the Last Century, and a Highly revered Monk around the whole Kingdom of Thailand. he was Respected and revered by His Majesty Our great King, who was a close friend and companion.

This Great Monk achieved his status through his Great deeds and his great Diligence in his Patipatā (Practice of Purity and Renunciation), and in his Great Attainments in Dhamma Pariyatti and Dhamma Patipatā.

His Blessings are believed to possess the most powerful protective power, and to increase success and prosperity. His amulets are both highly revered for their sacred Power of Protection and Prosperity, but also as a connection and Buddhanissati reminder of the Great Guru master, to beseech his blessings through the amulet.

 

Pra Kru Luang Por Ngern Amulets found at Wat Khao Pra Dtai

Presenting you with knowledge about Ancient Amulets with the 2553 BE discovery of Pra Luang Por Ngern Hiding Place amulets in a Find from the Temple of Wat Khao Pra Dtai. The edition is officially accepted, and assumed to have been placed under the pillars of the Sala Mai Gao temple salon in 2462 BE. Luang Por Ngern is one of Thailand’s Top ten Most Revered Buddha-Monk Images, for whom the Blessings of Riches and Protection are the most Highly Reputed for their Miraculous Power.

25 different Pim of amulets, were found buried in ‘Hai’ ancient clay pots, in the 2533 BE discovery dig at the temple of Wat Khao Pra Dtai.

They are assumed and officially accepted by the temple and the collector scene as having been buried and hidden there in the year 2462 BE, as LP Ngern was at the temple to inaugurate the Sala Mai, and due to the fact that a few examples of amulets in the pots had the date 2460 stamped on the base of the amulets.

The amulets were mostly quite badly damaged, with only about a third of them being made from cast metal, and the remaining two thirds being made from sacred powder and clay. Hence, only a limited number of these amulets were able to be restored. There were a number of different types metal substances in the amulets found, including Sacred Alloys based in Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper, Iron, and Lead. The versions found made in ‘Nuea Loha’, are highly preferred.

A very few of them were found in some examples to be ‘Piak Tong’ (wet gold effect), which instantly became ‘Niyom’ (preferred) amulets and the price of them rose much higher than other models. This golden coating method was a method used applying a specific method used in the early Ratanakosin Era of the Ayuttaya Kingdom. It is not used anymore in its particular method.

Some of the amulets were kept with the ‘Kraap Kru’ earth and mildew growths on the surface of the amulets. Others were cleaned to reveal their design features and the metallic sheen, leaving just enough Kraap Kru to enhance their beauty, and reveal their origin.

Pra Kru Luang Por Ngern Wat Khao Pra Dtai Archeological Find

The amulets were discovered as the ‘Sala Mai Gao’ wooden shelter salon was removed to build a new one, and some pots were uncovered under the pillars of the Sala Building, as well as hidden underneath the Main Buddha Image within the Building.

We have sourced a few of these rare amulets, and are adding them to the storefront showroom as fast as time permits. We have spent a long time studying and researching to authenticate and deliver proper reference information about the amulets, which we highly recommend as an ultra affordable amulet for those who seek an alternative to the Pra Luang Por Ngern Pim Niyom Wat Bang Klan First edition Amulet, which are both no longer affordable, nor easily available to anybody except millionaires.

The temple of Wat Khao Pra Dtai has released an official book of this find and documents the edition and its 25 or so different Pim (models), and confirms in its historical records, that Luang Por Ngern himself came to install and bless the Sila Reuks Foundation Stone at the temple and built the Sala Mai Gao building, which explains well, how the Luang Por Ngern amulets got placed under the feet of each pillar, under the foundations of the building.

None of us were present back there in 2460+ BE to witness the events, and so, as always, it is a matter of personal faith as to what oneself concludes as to the origins of an ancient amulet of esteem, but with all the information gathered, and the reputability of the sources of the information (The Temple Itself), makes this recent discovery of what are almost certainly original Luang Por Ngern Wat Bang Klan Amulets from the Hand of the Master Himself, and are Master Class Amulets that are for now, the best alternative to the first edition Pra Luang Por Ngern Roop Lor and Rian Job amulets of World Famous Status, and Millionaire Price-Tags.

This find has become a Classic and Highly revered Edition as it falls ever more into the eye of the General Public. Its rise in popularity is now incremental to the rapid speed with which news of its existence is spreading like wildfire, due to the modern age of social networking, and devotees of LP Ngern are sharing their experiences and knowledge on the internet, which has in turn caused this edition to explode in the speed of its rise to popularity and obtain its Master-Class Status.

The Pra Luang Por Ngern Kru Wat Khao Pra Dtai, is just as Sacred and Powerful, and Beautiful, as the Millionaire Price-Tag Models, except they do not carry such a large Price-Tag. For this reason, Who would not wish to own one of these amulets, before they also become unavailable, and carry a Millionaire Price-Tag of their own. The Pra Luang Por Ngern Pim Khee Dta is a perfect Heirloom Amulet to keep in the family for generations, and a Sacred Memorial of Luang Por Ngern Wat Bang Klan, that is still very affordable considering its origins.

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).

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.

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.
