Luang Phu Kroo Ba Gaew was trained in his early ordination under the lineage of Luang Phu Mun Puritatto, and is one of the great Kroo Ba Ajarn of the Northern Lanna Region, who was a very close companion of the Great Luang Phu Hwaen Sujjino, of Wat Doi Mae Pang.
Luang Phu Kroo Ba Gaew has somewhat of a mysterious past, because his biography was never officially documented, and Kroo Ba Gaew himself was not prone to talk about himself very much. This of course common with High Arya Sangha who have practiced and attained inner peace, and is in itself a sign of great attainments. Sadly however, this results in little being known about his early life as a monk in the lineage of Luang Phu Mun, leaving us with only a partial knowledge of his Biography.
But the miracles of this Great Monk have been told and retold over many decades, and by word of mouth, Kroo Ba Gaew became a Great Kroo Ba Ajarn of the region, on the merits of Miracles made. It is said, that once during the time Kroo Ba Gaew was still living, a Naga Serpent came up from the underworld near the temple, and was run over by a truck as it slithered across the road, and was hurt. The Naga crawled up to the temple and called Luang Phu Kroo Ba Gaew to come out and heal him with holy water.
Another famous legend is the tale of the three Buddha images in the Mae Nam Ping river, which were embedded in the stream. Luang Phu Kroo Ba Gaew performed a ceremony to invite them to rise up from the waters to perform miracles for humanity, and come to reside at the temple.
The statues rose up from the depths and were able to be transported to the temple, where they reside to this day. It is said these Buddhas can make the rain fall in the proper season to make the crops grow, which is a matter of life and death from many farming communities in the region. The Buddhas are hence extremely sacred for the local devotees, and Kroo Ba Gaew’s miracle of calling them, is perhaps his most famous legend.
Luang Phu Kroo Ba Gaew’s amulets are extremely rare, because he never ever really focused on making amulets of many kinds. he would only release mainly Buddhist amulets such as his monk coins, and ‘Roop Tai’ blessėd monk photos, and items of reverence and practice such as the Prakam Saksit Blessėd Rosary. Devotees of Kroo Ba Gaew like to wear his rosaries with one of his coin amulets attached for prayer and protection of the Guru. HIs devotees are very reluctant to part with their amulets of Luang Phu Kroo Ba Gaew, for they believe them to possess very powerful protection, and bring auspicious blessings.
The Wongarn Pra Krueang Lanna Northern Amulet Appreciation Society have registered the pantheon of amulets of Kroo Ba Gaew as residing within the Dtamrap Pra Krueang Lanna Yord Niyom ‘Top List of Most Preferred Amulets of the Lanna Region’.

Pra Pid Ta Putto Nuea Poon Sek Pim Yai Ongk Kroo Fang Met Pratat Insert Mae Chee Bun Ruean Wat Awut
An extremely rare and immensely revered Ongk Kroo version amulet with blessed Met Pratat Sacred relic insert, that is seldom seen, of the Great Thai Buddhist Nun, Mae Chee Bun Ruean, of Wat Awut; the Sacred Pra Pid Ta is inimitably fashioned in a manner that is instantly recognisable as that of the Mae Chee Bun Ruean Thai Buddhist Nun, and made from her famous 'Poon Sek sacred muan sarn ingredients, which are known for their Buddhakhun Magical Properties. This Ongk Kroo with Ruby Insert is a Pim Niyom Preferred Model and an essential rarity.
The rear face is 'Hlang Riab' smooth faced. The front face has an Blessed Relic Stone inserted as Ploi Sek Maha Pokasap, enclosed by the limbs of the Buddha (Ud Sap, meaning to allow influx but no outflow of wealth).
The Pidta were dfistributed to the closest devotees of Mae Chee Bun Ruean, for they were made in small numbers, and are hence very rare to encounter indeed. Kun Mae Chee Bun Ruean was famous for her 'Pra Putto Noi' amulet, Thung Khiaw Hniaw Sap treasure pouches, and Khaw Dtok Pra Ruang Sacred Elements. Her amulets and those in her image enjoy immense reverence with Buddhist Folk of every Province in Thailand, for her great healing powers and her Merits made for Buddhism, and her meditative prowess and teachings.
The amulet is empowered for protection, wish fulfilment by holding and praying to, and making wishes, and is a protector against black magick, as well as possessing healing elements.The amulet can be held in the palm of the hand when meditating too, for intensive practices.
Mae Chee Bun Ruean is perhaps the most famous of Thai Buddhist Nuns, which is underlined by the fact that a Buddhist Nun made such great impression and influence in the Thai Buddhist religion is a statement in itself of her great merits to propagate and preserve the Buddha's teachings, and to lead her devotees towards the true path of practice.
Who was Mae Chee Bun Ruean?
Kun Mae Chee Bun Ruean was a Buddhist Nun whose purity of practice was so exemplary that she became a Buddhist master in her own right in Thailand's Theravada tradition, which is highly unusual and a difficult task to acheive, in a Tradition where women are not permitted to ordain as a Bhikkhuni, and must remain in white as a Karavasa Holder of Precepts.
Despite these disadvantages, her great practice, Metta (Compassion) and her teachings, and Charitable Works for Buddhism, brought her to become the most highly beloved Buddhist Nun in the History of Thai Buddhism. She was known to practice and listen to the Dhamma mostly at Wat Sampant Wongs in Bangkok.

Her most famous amulet is of course the 'Pra Putto Noi' amulet, which was made in various kinds of sacred powder clay. The most popular model being the 'Pim Jumbo' large size model, in its white powder version.
The Pra Putto Noi was created in the year 2494 BE, with the Mae Chee Bun Ruean as the Organiser of the raising of the funds for their making and the Charitable Acts which were planned from the funds. The Pra Putto Noi amulet in its Pim Niyom model, if in pristine state, can fetch tens of thousands of dollars in the high end auction rooms of the Sian Pra Niyom.
Luckily there were many models, and some are still affordable in this time, but they are very far and few to discover for collection. The devotees who wear her amulets walk confidently in faith of the Metta Maha Niyom and Serm Duang Klaew Klaad Powers, and healing effects of the amulets of Kun mae Chee Bun Ruean. Devotees would rub the powders ointment onto giant centipede and snake bites and infected wounds, to heal them.
Her amulets are said to heal illnesses and to improve Karma. They are believed to be full of Puttakun Power to bring auspicious blessings and prosperity, because of Mae Chee Bun Ruean's life of charitable acts, and her practice of great generosity. They are full of Metta Maha Niyom from Mae Chee Bun Ruean's Equal treatment and Loving Compassion for all of her devotees regardless of their social or financial status. All were treated with the same Metta.
Her purity is believed to have made the amulets she created to be so powerful, and caused her Pra Putto Noi and other amulets to be extremely sought after amulets. She blessed the amulets in 2494 BE, with a ceremonial prayer for the Welfare of the Temple of Wat Awut, in Thonburi. The aim of the funds raised from the edition was to construct the Pra Putto Paas Chinarat Jom Muni, as the 'Pra Pratan' Main presiding Buddha Image of the Uposatha Shrineroom at Wat Sarnath Dhammaram temple, in Rayong.
She bestowed permission to Pra Ajarn Sanguan Kosago, the Abbot of Wat Awut Wikasitaram, who had already collaborated in the making of the Pra Putto Noi Amulets which were previously distributed during the Tord Pha Pha robe donation ceremony. Ma Chee Bun ruean also made extra batches to donate to the Monks at Wat Sampant Wongs, for them to give to their devotees who came to make merits.
Apart from the Pra Putto Noi amulet, Kun Mae Chee Bun Ruean made various other amulets which are also in extremely high regard for their Sacredness, such as the Pra Chaiyawat Putto Brass Votive Tablet of 2499 BE, and the Rian Pra Putto Jom Muni coin of the Pra Putto Yai Statue Installation Ceremony of 2499 BE.
Another very popular 'Krueang Rang' Talismanic Charm of Mae Chee Bun Ruean was the 'Thung Hniaw Sap" treasure glue purse (lucky purse to attract treasures and money like glue sticks to paper), made in 2497 BE. The treasure purse was made in various colours; white, blue, yellow, pink, red, black, and with various styles and designs. Som were made from sack cloth, others from fine cloths, some were large others small purses. The closures of the purses were also varied, ranging from zip to string closures.
Mae Chee Bun Ruean empowered the Thung Khiaw Hniaw Sap treasure attractor purses at the temple of the Buddha Footprint at Wat Pra Puttabat, in Sra Buri, where they were blessed in a large Buddha Abhiseka ceremony and released in early 2488 BE. Some purses actually had something inside of them, and others didn't. The purses are reputed for their Maha Pokasap power to increase wealth and professional success, but have also gained a reputation for powerful healing and protection powers too.
