When speaking of the Pae Maha Lap lucky goat amulet, there is one name which stands above all others, and that is the name of Luang Por Am, of Wat Nong Grabork, in Ban Kaay Rayong. Luang Por Am was, along with Masters like Luang Por Horm of Wat Sak Hmak, Luang Por Rerm of Wat Juk Gacher, and Luang Por Chaem, considered among the top Masters of the Province, long before even the Great Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai acheived his fame. Luang Por Am was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of the Great Luang Por Lat (Wat Nong Grabork), who is famed in his own right for his powerful Pae Maha Lap Hand Carved Goat Amuletsม which he of course mastered under the tutelage of Luang Por Am.
The male Goat is known for the fact that it is able to keep a whole herd of dozens of females under his ownership, through merciful and protective influence. It is thus believed that who wears the Pae Maha Lap Khao Kwai Gae Sacred buffalo horn Goat amulets of Luang Por Am, will be an owner and controller of great possessions and wealth, with grand entourage.

Luang Por Am, or ‘Pra Kroo Taep Sittaa, was one of the Great Masters of the Central-Eastern Provinces during His Era, and the ex abbot of Wat Nong Grabork from 2431 – 2490 BE. He was rrespected and revered all around the Province, and had Great fame around the Nation for his Powerful Wicha. During his lifetime he became known as the top Master for carved Lucky Goat amulets. What is less known, and is of immense interest to investigate the lineage Wicha of the Pae Maha Lap, is the fact that Luang Por Am himself received this Wicha from Luang Por Dtaeng of Wat Ang Sila.
Luang Por Am was abbot of Wat Nong Grabork between the years 2431 to 2490 BE, being a Gaeji Ajarn of around 150 years ago, and was the Kroo Ba Ajarn teacher of many other great names of the time, such as Luang por Rerm of Wat Juk Gacher, and Luang Por Lat of Wat Nong Grabork (his successor and apprentice in magick). The Pae Maha Lap Nuea Khao Kwai Gae of Luang Por Am, is believed to possess the power to absorb Black Magick and protect the wearer/devotee from being affected.
It can be said that the Pae Maha Lap of Luang Por Am, Luang Por Lat, and now Pra Atigarn Surasit Akkawaro, the current abbot (written 2562 BE), are considered the ‘cream of the crop’, by serious devotees of the Pae Maha Lap, along with those other Great Chonburi Masters whose names carry fame for this Wicha such as Luang Phu Tim, uang Por Sakorn, Luang Phu Sin.
The Pae Maha Lap of Luang Por Am, was almost always made by carving a goat from ‘Khao Kwai Fa Pha Dtaay’, which is the horn of a buffalo which died struck by lightning in a field. It is an ancient magical belief that the horn of a lightning-struck bull or buffalo has the power of angelic beings in it, for indeed, the angelic beings of the elemental realms who control the weather, are who control these divine forces of Nature.
After the carving of the shape of the goat, Luang Por Am would then empower the Goats with incantations, and invocations of elemental powers and angelic beings, with Buddhist Blessings on top. Sometimes he would immerse them in aromatic sacred oils to consecrate them, mixed with herbal oils made from herbs and vines and flowers of the forest, with magical, healing, protective, and attraction powers. He would rebless them again and again until he felt the amulets were completely stuffed as full with magic as possible, and unable to insert any more. The magic within the amulets was hence always filled to the brim before distribution.
Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Nuea Chompoo Fang Takrut Ta Tong 2517 BE Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai
Special version Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn with Takrut Insert, of which only few were made, from the 2517 BE Edition blessed by Luang Phu Tim, at Wat Po Sampant.
What is less known about this famous edition, is that the amulets were also blessed by other great Guru Monks, who were present along with Luang Phu Tim to assist in the Buddha Abhiseka Ceremony, and included; Luang Phu To ( Wat Pradoo Chimplee), Luang Por Rerm (Wat Juk Kacher, in Bang Lamung), and Luang Por Chern (Wat Mab Kha).
The Look om were released in various versions; 1. With code stamp and with Takrut 2. Without code stamp but with Takrut, 3. With code stamp and without Takrut, and also 4. A pink powder version with Takrut was released all with or without 'Ta Tong' bronze finish. All versions are now extremely rare, for the fact that various groups of Devotees from the various Guru Masters present in the ceremony all became fervent collectors of this amulet.
This amulet has taken on a big increase in popularity during the last decade, and is now no longer to be encountered commonly anywhere in the amulet emporiums, except for the most elite showrooms. It can be expected that this amulet becomes a priceless treasure that is no longer logically affordable during the next decade, for which we highly recommend it as a sound investment and a last chance to obtain and be the proud owner of an authentic Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim, with the added blessings of Luang Por Rerm, Luang Por Chern and Luang Phu To as extra faith instilment.
A Takrut spell is inserted in this Master Piece pink powders (Wan Sabu Luead) Model, making it a highly attractive and rare Sacred Amulet that would be a welcome addition to any Master Class Collector's Showcase, and more importantly, would be a most powerful amulet to possess for Bucha, and receive its Blessings, which History has proved time and time again to be one of the most powerful and famous amulets in Thai Amulet History.
History of the Edition
When Luang Por Bun Mee Atha Banyo passed away on the 24th April of the year 2516 BE, Pra Prasit Prasittigo, who was given the charge of adminsitrating the temple instead of the deceased Abbot, and who was a direct apprentice to Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai, went to see his Guru at Wat Laharn Rai. Luang Phu Tim then bestowed the Wicha Takrut Tone, giving him the instruction to cut leaden Yantra foils at a length of around 11.7 Cm, and inscribe a series of Khom Agkhara spells onto the leaden Takrut Tone scrolls.

He then gave the formula of Muan sarn Ingredients to make the Pong Prai Kumarn Powders and other powders for amulets, and instructed Pra Prasit Prasittigo to gather and prepare these ingredients for the making of the Look Om, according to the given formula.
Some of the Muan Sarn which was used included; Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim, Sincana Cords from Buddha Abhiseka Blessings, and Abhidhamma Funeral Ceremonies, Pong Ittajae, Pong Dtrinisinghae, Pong Bpathamang, Hair from Luang Phu Tim (Gesa), Nam Man Look Prakam Oil, Nam Man Pra jao Taksin Oil, Broken Down Ancient Sacred Amulets from a host of Sacred Temples, and Pong Puttakun Powders from Luang Phu Bun Mee, the recently deceased Abbot of Wat Po Sampant.
These ingredients were then then bound together using the Wicha given by Luang Phu Tim. Because a lot of powder was left after making the limited editions of each kind of Look Om, the remainder of the powders were used to cover the Takrut Tone amulets with Because of the various coarse elements of Muan Sarn, each Look Om and Takrut of the Wat Po Sampant edition may have differing elements visible within the powders, such as Gaesa (hair) of Luang Phu Tim, and Sincana cord threads. The Look Om were covered with a bronze coating, and some were empowered with insertion of Takrut Sariga spell (1 - 3 Takrut per Look Om).
The Look Om have a different appearance in surface texture to the editions released at Wat Laharn Rai and are defined and differentiated easily for their distinction in coloration and surface texture. The Muan Sarn is much drier and harder, and condensed that the batches of Wat Laharn Rai, and are much harder to the touch. They were made in many different sizes, ranging from 0.5 Cm, right up the the size of a Fist, and were blessed on 2 different separate occasions;
1. The first Blessing Ceremony was held at Wat Po Sampant, in 2517 BE with Luang Phu To of Wat Pradoo Chimplee, Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai, Luang Phu Sim, of Wat Tham Pha Plong, Luang Phu Kram of Wat Wang Hwaa, Luang Phu Mon, of Wat Nern Ta Mak, Luang Por Rerm of Wat Juk Kacher, and Luang Por Chern of Wat Mab Kha present, amongst a large number of other monks who came to assist in the ceremony.
2. The second empowerment occurred by Pra Luang Por Prasit taking the whle batch from Wat Po Sampant, and depositing them with Luang Phu Tim at Wat Laharn Rai, who empowered the Look Om in solitary every night for a period of 8 Months, whereupon Luang Phu Tim became ill, and was admitted into Hospital, where he was kept in care for a period of 23 days, after which, Luang Phu passed away after return to the Temple at 23:00 hours, on the 16th at the Prayer Room of Wat Laharn Rai
The Wat Po Sampant edition Look Om are amongst the amulets at the temple which received Luang Phu's last 8 months of blessings, and is an immensely important edition, and also the very last edition he empowered right up to his passing, along with some other editions which were also deposited and in stasis at the temple to receive his blessings before release.
