Pra Benjapakee – Top Amulets of the Five Major Regions of Thailand
The Benjapakee Amulet is a Pantheon of Ancient Amulets that carry Immortal Historical Fame and Legend in the Thai Buddhist Amulet World, and are perhaps the heart of all Thai Buddhist Amulets which have arisen in a myriad of forms based in the Benjapakee Collection of amulets. The Pra Benja-Pakee is a collection of five (the word ‘Benja’ meaning ‘Five’ in Sanskrit), top amulets of each of 5 regions (the word ‘Pakee’ meaning ‘Regions’ in Sanskrit)
The Five Benjapakee Amulets of Old are;
Pra Somdej, Pra Nang Paya, Pra Pong Supan, Pra Rod Lampun, Pra Sum Gor
However, there also are sub variations of these five Regional amulets which most people will also class within the Benjapakee collection, such as the Pra Kong Lampun, the Pra Beum Lampun, are alsop two pra Kru amulets of Lampun Province which are as highly valued as the Pra Rod.Each Region has its own ‘Benjapakee’ with its own top five amulets of its region. One can also find ‘Benjapakee’ collections of one single type of amulet, such as the ‘Benjapakee’ of Look Om Sacred Powder Ball amulets or the Benjapakee of Top Five Regional Pra Pid Ta Amulets.. This is of course a Folk Tradition and so one can find the word Benjapakee used in more than just the case of the classic historical Ancient Amulets known as the classic original Benjapakee Collection.

Luang Phu To made many amulets and released them in many temples, it is hence necessary to state that an amulet pantheon book is nbot a comlplete list of all amulets of any Master Monk, rather, is an attempt to document as many as possible of known and accepted proved amulets. However, the true number of amulets blessed by Masters of this calibre, have never all been documented all within the pages of one single book.
For example, Takrut and other charms from Luang Phu To are not mentioned, as well as other famous editions where he collaborated with another master such as LP Tim of Wat Laharn Rai, or temples where he released amulets in Buddha Abhiseka away from Wat Pradoo Chimplee (for example the editions he made and blessed at Wat Tham Singto Tong, a temple which Luang Phu To himself built).
