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 Prok Po Fang Khaw Sarn Sek Silver Frame LP Tim & LP To Released at Wat Sri Palotay 2516 BE
Pra Somdej Prok Po Nuea Pong Ittijae Fang Khaw Sarn Sek (Sacred Yantra Powders Buddha Under Bodhi tree Image Votive Tablet, with blessed rice grain embedded in rear face), with solid silver casing with Ya Rachawadee colored enamels, from Wat Sri Palotay in Chonburi. This 2516 BE Edition was blessed by Luang Phu Tim, and Luang Phu To, of Wat Pradoo Chimplee.The Pra Prok Po represents the Buddha in the moment of his Enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree.
This edition has come to be known as the Pra Chud Wat Sri Palotay 2516. This now famous and ever increasingly sought out 2516 BE edition, from Wat Sri Palotay, in Chonburi, has now become one of the most favored and hunted additions in recent times, especially in collectors circles, and with the Devotees of the two great master monks of the last half century; Luang Phu Tim (Wat Laharn Rai), and Luang Phu To (Wat Pradoo Chimplee). The amulets are very popular because their price level is much lower than amulets of LP To and LP Tim which come directly from Wat Pradoo or Wat Laharn Rai, but which have the same powerful blessings from both Masters.
The rear face of this exhibit has a grain of Khaw Sarn Sek blessed rice inserted into the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders Clay. Luang Phu Tim donated some of his famous Sacred Powders for this edition, making it doubly Sacred, not only for the empowerments of Luang Phu Tim and Luang Phu To, but for the presence of Luang Phu Tim's Pong Prai Kumarn and Pong Ittijae powders in the Muan Sarn.
The reason for this, is that News has now got out around the Nation, that these amulets were empowered and blessed by the Great Luang Phu Tim, and Luang Phu To, with Muan Sarn Sacred Powders from Luang Phu Tim being added to the sacred clay amulets.
These amulets, have the obvious presence of Pong Prai Kumarn, and other famous Muan Sarn Sacred Powders, known to come from the hand of Luang Phu Tim. This edition is now slowly taking on immense preference and popularity, even faster than the Wat Pai Lom amulets.
This is due to the fact that since Luang Phu Tim's first generation amulets became depleted, and only available to Millionaires, this subsequently, has caused the second tier of more commonly known amulets blessed by Luang Phu Tim, such as the Wat Pai Lom edition, to also suffer rapid depletion, and disappearance of the edition from the marketplace.
The Wat Sri Palotay edition was not recognised until 2011, and hence has till now escaped the speculators and collectors and evaded their hands, allowing these amulets to still be avaialable whilst they are still not featured in the Nationwide News.
This will however happen, and it is only a matter of time before this series of amulets blessed, empowered and with Muan Sarn Sacred Powders from Luang Phu Tim and Luang Phu To, is also only to be found in collector catalogies, competitions, and the showcases of millionaires.
Blessed in 2516 BE, at Wat Sri Palotay in Chonburi, with the great Luang Phu Tim and Luang Phu To presiding over the Buddha Abhiseka Blessing Ceremony. The amulets were distributed to local Devotees, but were mostly hidden for later unearthing and distribution.

Various different models were released in this edition including various Pra Pid Ta, Pra Somdej, Pra Pud, and many other amulets. The edition is highly recommended to collect before they become yet another rarity that is beyond the affordable reach of the general devotee, and can be considered a definite future classic of World Famous Status. The edition is however already being snapped up by collectors and devotees in Thailand, where news of Luang Phu Tim's empowerment of the edition has already begun to become widespread, and is causing fervor in the collector communities.
This edition is considered to be slowly taking over status from what is currently the most famous remaining edition of Luang Phu Tim's pantheon of amulets, the Wat Pai Lom series edition, which is also now the top sought after series blessed by Luang Phu Tim. We highly recommend both editions as a wise choice of Sacred Amulets, that have a Grand Future and Highly Ascending Trajectory ahead of them.
