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.

His first amulets were mostly Pra Somdej and the Pra Kring Klong Takian amulet, which is now also becoming ever more impossible to find, due to the fact that the local people of Paetchburi are not prone to sell their amulets from this great master. Those who do have one tend to stay quiet about it, and do not sell them or show them around.

It was a commonplace saying, that any true Gunwielding Pistolero of Paetchburi should have to wear the Pra Kring Klong Takian of Luang Por Plern, and this was indeed seen to be truly worn by most of the Historical Gunmen of Fame. It was said by them, that the Pra Kring Klong Takian caused guns to refuse to fire, and swords and daggers to refuse to draw blood.
