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.

This amulet is only found in circulation in the circles of devotees of Luang Phu Hwaen of Central Thailand, making its rairty rather extreme, due to the fact that Luang Phu Hwaen is a Northern Master of Chiang Mai Province, but who released the amulets to assist the Temple of Wat Plab Pla in Nontaburi, and for this reason, is a very difficult to find amulet in the Northern Regions, where Luang Phu Hwaen amulets are generally sought after the most of all.
Luang Phu Waen Sujinno (Thai: หลวงปู่แหวน สุจิณโณ, also known as Pra Ajarn Waen Sujinno, popularly known as Luang Phu Waen meaning Venerable Grandfather; 16 February 1887 – 2 July 1985) is one of the longest living students of Phra Ajahn Mun Bhuridatta and was a very popular monk in Thailand. Another true ascetic at heart, he led the Tudong life of Forest Wandering Ascetisim, until the point where he could not physically travel any more and had to settle in a forest monastery in the Chiang Mai region. Luang Phu Waen was a revered monk, highly skilled in Samadhi Meditation, and Dhamma.
The most remarkable characteristic of Luang Phu Waen, was his dislike of crowded places. He loved to live alone in the forests away from people and urbanized areas just like his teacher, Ajahn Mun Bhuridatta. Some people say that Luang Phu Waen had achieved Arahantship. Tahn Jao Khun Nor had in fact mentioned that "There is a Pra Arahant, but he lives far away, in the forest", and that this referred to Luang Phu Waen.
