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.

Luang Por Sud, and his Amulets, and His famous Yant Takror and Takror Balls are amongst the Popular 'Niyom' Class of Preferred Guru Masters, of a High Class but with a still affordable pricetag, despite their ever increasing rarity and difficulty to encounter when seeking an item from this Master.
The Takrut is estimated to have been made at around 2490 BE. This Ancient Amulet, is said to have been the favor of the Great Highwaymen and Robbers, who used the Pha Yant and Look Hwaay Takror to Protect themselves. The Look Takror of Luang Por Sud is the subject of a Legendary story that is said to have helped a Thief Escape hundreds of Police, as he was surrounded, and slip through their hands with the power of the Magic Amulet assisting.
This is a very rare and Ancient Amulet for the collector of 'Thai Krueang Rang' (Buddhist, Occult, and Animist Charms), and is a matter of choice whether the owner wishes to preserve it in Museum Case or wear it for its Protective Powers. Please always Take Care with Authentic Sacred Ancient Amulets, and preserve their condition as best as possible, but also remember that amulets both Ancient and Modern, were designed and intended to be worn, more than they were intended to be kept in a Museum. This exhibit borders on being a Personal Museum Collection Piece to be worn perhaps in rare and fitting circumstances, otherwise to be placed on its own altar for worship, or in a showcase if you are a home museum showcase amulet collector.

Luang Por Sud was born in the year 2445 BE on the 7th of May. he ordained into the Sangha at the age of 16 as a Samanera Novice Monk. When he moved after becoming a fully fledged Bhikkhu to Samut Sakorn and stayed at Wat Ka Long, where he eventually became the Abbot through his long term diligence and meritorious acts. He became famous for his Wicha Yant Look Takror Whicker ball Yantra, which he had Mastered through the use of Khmer Sorcery methods. Luang Por Sud made many different kinds of amulets, but it is perhaps the Takrut, and hits Look Takror Wicha amulets (including the Pha Yant Takror) which are his most revered and famous for their Kong Grapan Chadtri and Klaew Klaad powers. Luang Por Sud became even more famous after his death in the year of his cremation in 2545 BE, when his body would not burn, and seemed impermeable to fire. So the temple committee was forced to give up trying to cremate him, and placed his remains in a glass coffin.
Luang Por Sud was the continuation of and the disciple in Magic of the Great Luang Por Rung (Wat Ta Graber) and Luang Phu Mao (Wat Klang Panom Prai). A great mark of respect was given to Luang Por Sud by the great Luang Por Rung, who asked Luang Por Sud to come and assist in the empowerment of Luang Por Rung's first edition Coin Amulet. Luang Por Sud passed away on the 14th of August 2526 BE, and it was then that his already great fame became legendary around the country, as the miracle of his Cremation Ceremony occurred before the eyes of thousands of Devotees
The event fulfilled the Prophecy which had happened in the Dream of his first apprentice, Luang Por Chalong, where Luang Por Sud had appeared and told Luang Por Chalong that it would not be possible to light the Funeral Pyre, and that Luang Por Sud would do it himself, but that his bones would remain, for they could not be burned. This is a strange thing, because this kind of miracle also happened with the Arahant Saributra in the times of the Buddha, and it is said that the bones of Saributra cannnot be burned until the Future Buddha Maitreya comes, who shall burn them with Kasina Fire energy.
