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.
Pra Putta Jao Pratap Sadtw 2527 BE Pim Song Phii Suea Niyom - Buddha Riding Garuda in Butterfly Posture - Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam
A very pristine condition competition class early edition preferred clay Buddha amulet, Pim Song Krut Phii Suea Bua Koo, featuring a Buddha Riding on Garuda, from LP Ruesi Ling Dam. This Model is the Pim Phii Suea (Garuda with Butterfly Wings Model) Thaan Bua Koo (double Lotus Dais), Ud Pong Wised (Sacred Yantra Powder filled). A Highly Sacred Clay Pra Kru Amulet of Preferred Class (Niyom), of the Great Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam, of Wat Ta Sung, in Utai Thani.
LP Ruesi Ling Dam, was the first and foremost comrade, and accomplice in Sorcery to the Great Luang Por Parn of Wat Bang Nom Kho, and a Master Gaeji Ajarn in his own Right and Standing, whose amulets have now become very rare, and have taken on an increasingly higher status, and begin to approach those of his Mentor, Luang Por Parn. Luang Por Ruesi received the Wicha of LP Parn in its entirety and inherited the Adept Level in the year 2480-2481 BE, after a final year of intensive practice.
Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam got his name from the fact that Luang Por Parn would call his three closest companions in the Sangha as 'Ling Khaw' (whit monkey), 'Ling Lek' (small monkey), and in turn, gave the name 'Ling Dam' (black monkey) to Luang Por Ruesi. The word 'Ruesi' was placed in front of 'Ling Dam', because Luang Por was a Ruesi Hermit Practitioner before he ordained as a Buddhist Monk (Bhikkhu), hence he gained the nickname of Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam.
Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam's amulets are seen as a total surety for a definite result, due to the true and pure practice and dedication of this Olden Days Buddhist Guru Master, whose teachings have led so many lay devotees and ordained Monks to a higher understanding of the Dhamma. His Abhinya Powers are irrefuted by Thai Buddhist People, and is amulets are seen as highly Sacred, and believed to possess Miraculous Powers.
When we speak of the amulets of Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam, the first and foremost amulet that would come to mind would usually be the Pra Kam Khaw, and the Pra Hang Hmaak Amulet. This is the Sacred Powder Amulet that can be found to be worn or kept in the house of almost every Devotee of Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam.
In addition however, Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam produced a very large number of other amulets, many of which also enjoy Internationally Acclaimed Fame and Status for their Sacred Power, such as the Look Gaew Sarapat Neuk, and the famous 'Pra Putta Jao Pratap Sadtw' , Buddha Riding on Animals amulets, which are of course the Wicha inherited from his Kroo Ba Ajarn, Luang Por Parn (Wat Bang Nom Ko). His Pra Rod amulets and Monk Coins are rarities which are highly revered with the true devotee of Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam.
The Pra Putta Jao Pratap Sadtw series was created using exactly the same formula as the original Wicha from LP Parn, who in turn received it from a mysterious Chee Ba Khaw. The complete Wicha was composed of six different Pim (at least
those which are accepted as Pra Niyom preferred category amulets).They
are found in various coloured clays ranging from beige, brown,
yellowish-white, reddish brown and terracotta red, as well as dark
gray/blackish color. Each Pim had various versions pressed from differing block presses (Block Mae Pim).
Rules for Bucha;
Firstly, before we undertake any of our duties or tasks each day, we must think of the Buddha and his Achievement, and to have deep respect in one's heart for the Buddha. If one does this in the moment before Praying to the amulet, and focus to pray maintaining this Respect and Wonder at the Buddha's Self Enlightenment as you pray. If you do this properly, then the amulet will emit powerful aura, full of Mercy Charm, and Bestow you with Blessings.
If we are able to focus on and believe strongly in the Buddha's Enlightenment and Call Upon His Merits to assist, then this is considered to be Buddhanusssati Kammathana - a Kind of Meditative state likened to, or equal to that known as 'Jhana' (absorption). This is the state of mind that is necessary to activate and call up Miracle Powers, and is tantamount to Pure Faith, which is also a kind of Focused One Pointed Concentration, Absorption, or 'Jhana'.
One should also of course think of Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam when Praying. It is this element of the Practice of Faith reverence in Guru Worship, that gives Classic Amulets from great masters the edge over many standard issue amulet. For it is the Faith that the Master instills in the heart of the devotee (the wearer of the amulet), that increases the Power of Absorption.
It is deducibly much easier to feel Faith and Confidence from an Amulet that was made by a Guru Master that we all know of and is Legendary, and whom we believe in his teachings. If we do this every day before undertaking our chores and duties, we will have Great Success and Achievements coming our way.
