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 Somdej Khamin Sek Pasom Wan Ya Wasana Jinda Manee - Luang Phu Perm Wat Klang Bang Gaew
Ancient Amulet presents a Sacred Pra Somdej amulet in Sacred Nuea Wasana Jinda Manee Powders with Khamin Sek Sacred Cumin Powders, from four generations ago, and a most powerful and rare amulet of the Great Master Monk of Olden Days, Luang Phu Perm (2429 - 2526 BE) of Wat Klang Bang Gaew, in Nakorn Pathom.
An olden days classic, of immense rarity, from the second of the four Great Masters of the Wicha Luang Phu Bun Lineage, in sacred Ya Wasana Jinda Manee Powders. The amulets of Luang Phu Perm enjoy the same level of appreciation as those of is predecessor and Kroo Ba Ajarn, Luang Phu Bun, and are amongst the most highly sought after, and difficult to find.
Luang Phu Perm was the closest of all monks to Luang Phu Bun himself, being under his tutelage and in his service daily since his early ordination as a Samanera at the age of 8 years old. Luang Phu Perm hence remained also pure of the ways of the world, being a BHikkhu since childhood, and learning the Wicha of Luang Phu Bun since a very young age.
followed the World Famous Dtamra Wicha Saiyasart the Great Luang Phu Bun, of Wat Klang Bang Gaew, inheriting all of the Wicha from Luang Phu Bun, and Mastery of the fomulas of the special and famously powerful Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of Ya Wasanaa Jinda Manee, and Ya Khamin Sek. These two powders, along with a large number of classic Buddhist Amulet models, and of course the Bia Gae Cowrie shell amulet, are special Wicha, for which the temple of Wat Klang Bang Gaew, and the lineage of the four last abbots of the temple are all world famous for.
The Pong Ya Wasana Jinda Manee of Luang Phu Bun has become almost mythological in its fame for the powers it contains, and is one of the main Muan Sarn Sacred Powder substances used in the amulets of all Masters who came before and after Luang Phu Bun at the Temple of Wat Klang Bang Gaew, beginning with Luang Por Bun, Luang Por Perm, Ajarn Bai, Luang Por Juea, and onwards to the present Abbot, Luang Por Kong (Sanya).
The Wicha Pong Ya Wasana Jinda Manee is considered to be synonymous with the temple of Wat Klang Bang Gaew, and it is common knowledge that this is an inheritance from the great Luang Phu Bun. The Pong Ya Wasana Jinda Manee Muan Sarn Powders of Luang Phu Bun (also known as 'Pra Ya Horm') is a very aromatic Sacred Powder, which uses of course the famous 'Ya Wasana.
The word 'Wasana' (meaning Lucky Fortunes), along with Pong Khmain Sek (Enchanted Cumin) is the most famous Muan Sarn of Luang Phu Bun, and has become his Legendary 'Dtamra' (Traditonal Legend of Inheritance Wicha). The Wicha of Ya Wasana Jinda Manee was developed by Luang Phu from an Ancient Teaching through his Kroo Ba Ajarn, and has since his making the Muan Sarn famously powerful, has been inherited as a Wicha of Muan Sarn powder making for the amulets of the Wat Klang Bang Gaew lineage
The Legendary Wicha of Wat Klang Bang Gaew masters, began the legendary lineage sorcery with the Great Luang Phu Bun, followed by Luang Phu Perm, who succeeded Luang Phu Bun as new abbot after his passing, in 2489 BE.
Luang Phu Perm remained abbot of the temple until his passing in the year 2526 BE, and was succeeded by Ajarn Bai, who was then succeeded by the next abbot in this lineage Wicha of Wat Klang Bang Gaew, Luang Phu Juea Bpiyasilo. Luang Phu Juea also passed away some years ago, and has been succeeded by the 4th abbot, Luang Por Sanya (Kong).
Wat Klang Bang Gaew is an Ancient Temple in Nakorn Pathom. It is home to a Lineage History of these 4 great Ordained Masters, 3 who have Passed On (Luang Phu Bun, Luang Por Perm & Luang Phu Juea), and the Current Master, Luang Por Kong (Sanya). Luang Por Sanya is proving to continue in the same Trajectory as his Predecessors, and has created a long History of Deeds and released a large Pantheon of Amulets in the Lineage tradition of his Mentors, Luang Phu Bun, Luang Por Perm and Luang Phu Juea.
The Wat Klang Bang Gaew Master Lineage is a fantastic choice for Hunters & Collectors of Fine Master Class Amulets. This is because the Amulets of this Temple, and its Masters, range from the present Day master Luang Por Kong (Sanya), back through Luang Phu Juea, Luang Por Perm, and on, to the Great Luang Phu Bun.

A powerful continued Lineage of Masters have brought Wat Klang Bang Gaew to the Forefront of both the Ancient and the Modern Amulet Scenes, stretching back to the times of Luang Phu Bun, through the Era of Luang Por Perm, and the Great Luang Phu Juea Bpiyasilo, to its present Abbot, Luang Phu Sanya (Kong).
The Kata Pra Somdej is one and the same as the Kata Ārātanā Pra Krueang, which is the proper prayer to use.
Kata Aaratanaa Pra Krueang
Chant this Kata 3 times whenever you are about to place the chain over your head or put on the amulets, and also when you take them off. The Kata calls upon the power of the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha to be with you and protect and Guide you.
You can also use the Kata Jinda Manee Mont to invoke Maha Sanaeh Maha Lap power from the Ya Wasana Jinda Manee Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the amulet.
