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 Nuea Daeng with Ruby Fragments - Luang Por Niyom - Wat Takian Tia Circa 2540 BE
Pra Somdej Nuea Daeng (Red Sacred Powders) with Lek Lai Fragments - extremely rare amulet from Deceased Chonburi Master Luang Por Niyom of Wat Takian Tia
This Sacred Power Pra Somdej amulet with 'Ploi Daeng' ruby fragments sprinkled into the Muan Sarn, is an extremely rare to find amulet from the pantheon of amulets of Luang Por Niyom. This amulet is a top recommendation as an amulet that is not only sacred, and from a great master considered to possess magical powers, but is also an amulet that has a very long future.
Luang Por Niyom is a Sak Yant Master and Adept Amulet maker of the Chon Buri district who passed away in 2552 BE. He was a very Kind and Friendly monk with a devout following, who, since his passing has become ever more popular for his amulets around the whole country.
Now though, the collectors are beginning to take an extreme interest and collect all of the rarer amulets of Luang Por Niyom, for they know that the future holds a great legend in its hands, and that his amulets will become amongst the rare Masterpieces of the foregoing Generation of Thai Guru master Monk amulets.
A series stamp (small round indent) is embossed in the lower edge side of the amulet, which is a mark of authenticity to take heed of with this edition.
The amulet is made from visibly fine and rich Muan Sarn with red ruby fragments. the Buddha Image sits on a 3 tiered dais in the samadhi meditation posture, with slim 'matchstick' head, and the elongated ears which are so recognisable in Pra Somdej of Luang Por Niyom, for their thin subtle appearance.
The rear face features the 'Yant Noon' Yantra, with Khom Agkhara inscriptions embossed around it.
The Amulets of Luang Por Niyom have become so sought after this last year or so that they have rapidly become extremely rare, and the older editions of his amulets that were still in the temple, have been locked into a glass case and are no longer for sale.
This shows how difficult it has become to obtain an authentic amulet from the time when Luang Por was still alive. Many of the Devotees of Luang Phu Tim are turning to Chonburi Master Luang Por Niyoms amulets as a powerful alternative to Luang Phu Tims Sacred powder amulets, for they are seen to be of great power and similar richness of composition of sacred powders.
They are expected by those in the know, to enter into the same category as the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Phu To (Wat Pradoo Chimplee), and are thus becoming ever rarer, as the speculative collectors and experts round up the last remaining examples, in anticipation of a future major price increase, as word gets out, and they become essential rarities.
We advise to collect and safeguard amulets by LP Niyom, as a safe investment and a worthy Sacred Amulet of true Buddhist Spiritual value, and collectibility.
Luang Por Niyom was a special Monk with special powers, who is only now becoming publicly heard of outside of his Province and in International Amulet Scene. He was a close accomplice and companion of both Luang Por Sakorn of Wat Nong Grub, and Luang Phu Sin of Wat Laharn Yai.
Luang Por Niyom was originally known as Pra Ajarn Gae, but hs Dhamma Sermons became so popular, that his name became changed over the years by popular cultural infuence, to the name 'Luang or Niyom', because 'Niyom' means 'Popularly Preferred'.
This amulet is a perfect recommendation for all ages and genders, Men, Women or Children. It is a perfect Family Heirloom amulet to pass on through further generations, as a Spiritual memento of Ancestors.
Many people get a very strong and good feeling just from seeing Luang Pors Image, which is another proof of the immense Maha Sanaeh and Metta charm aura which this great master of Chon Buri possessed.
