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.
Nang Kwak Supawadee Nuea Pong Nam Man Early Era Amulet - Luang Por Guay Wat Kositaram (2448 - 2522 BE)
An extremely well preserved and clear example of the Pra Pong Mae Nang Kwak Nuea Pong Nam Man (Oily Pollens, and Sacred powders), 'Yuk Dton' (Early Era Amulet) from the Great Luang Por Guay, of Wat Kositaram. The amulet is estimated to have been made roughly between the years 2480 and 2497 BE, for Luang Por Guay released these amulet continuously throughout this period. This exhibit is outstanding in its clear cut features, and an excellently preserved example that is hard to find in such pristine condition
The front face of the amulet bears the image of Nang Supawadee the Brahman Merchant's daughter, who brought her family to immense success and wealthy fortunes, through her Metta Maha Niyom Maha Sanaeh Maha Lap Maha Pokasap power, which she had received as a blessing through having listened to Dhamma sermons from two great Arahants. Nang Kwak is waving and beckoning customers to come to her father's market cart and buy their wares, and is successful in this endeavour, through the mercy charm and seductive aura she emanates.
Luang Por Guay's amulets have reached the highest level of respect and collectorship in their history now, and are considered to have noticeable effects that are felt be everybody who owns and wears one of his amulets. The stories of confirmation of their power are more than can be counted, and his gereat Patipata and Exceedingly Powerful applied methods of Sorcery are a large part of what attributes to their power.
His amulets are now extremely rare to find because those who already own any will never wish to part with them again, and they are hence becoming one of the rarest kind of amulets to find these days. Usuallly this happens because of specualtion by the collector scene, but in the case of Luang Por Guays amulets, it has happened primarily for their Sacred Value, much much more than for their collectorship and artistic value, which is of course also extremely high.
Luang Por Guay was famous and extremely respected for his immensely diligent and complex manner of empowering (Pluk Sek) amulets, which involved daily empowerments at various times of day namely at dawn, morning, midday, afternoon, evening and midnight.
In addition, he would perform empowerments during the various 'Reuks' (Astrological Influentian moments), to bring total coverage of protection and fortuitous blessings to all who might wear and Bucha his amulets, namely the 'Reuks Mongkol' Buddhist Auspicious alignments, the 'Reuks Jone' (Gangster Alignments) Inauspicious Alignments, and the 'Reuks Bun Paya Marn' Demonic Influential Alignments. This means that it did not matter who wore his amulets, Good people would wear them, Gangsters would wear them, anybody could wear them without loss of magical effect.
Luang Por Guay was born on 2nd of November 2448 in the year of the snake, in Soi 9, Ban Kae , Tambon Bang Khud, Sakburi, Chainat. His Patipata trajectory as a Buddhist Guru Monk is an amazing story that has enchanted Buddhist Folk to become his devoted followers all around Thailand, for his obvious extreme dedication to high empowerment methods using Occult Buddha Magic to create extremely powerful Sacred Amulets. He was also a Grand Master of Sak Yant Tattoos, which were highly reputed for their Kong Grapan Power.
