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.

Their popularity came from their fame for rapid results in wealth increase, lottery wins, business expansion and even lifesaving miracles.

Turtle amulets have of course the special magical quality of generating long life. All achievements will come steadily, if perhaps not rapidly but surely and secure growth will be certain.
The Tao Ruean, is a very special Turtle, for it represents the Lord Buddha in one of his past lifetimes, as he was born as a Turtle. It is recounted in the 'Ha Roi Chati' (500 Lives of Buddha) story. The Buddha was alive as a turtle, who lived on a desert island on top of a mountain, practicing purity and morality.

The turtle grew so large to be as big as the size of a house over the years. One day some sailors were shipwrecked on his island, and began to starve. They tried to eat the Areca nuts, which are of course inedible, and then when one of them died, they trussed the dead man up and roasted him to eat his flesh for survival.
But this did not feed them for long, and they began to starve again. As time passed and they got desperate and looked like they were going to begin killing each other and turn cannibal, the turtle looked down from the mountain and was filled with mercy. He thought 'I do not have anything to give these poop humans to eat, except for my own body. May i donate my large body and its meat for these humans to survive, and may i attain Nibbana one day for this deed'.
The turtle then threw itself off the cliff, and fell bouncing down hitting the walls of the cliff, breaking its shell open, to land dead at the foot of the mountain on the beach in front of the sailors. The sailors then celebrated and paid respects to the great Paya Tao Ruean Turtle for his Mercy and Self Sacrifice, and survived until they were rescued by a passing ship.
When the people got safely back to port and came home, they began to fashion turtles from clay or metal or carved from wood and place as an object of reverence in their homes, to pay respect and as a memorial of the Paya Tao Ruean who saved their lives, and to remind them to practice compassion, and to keep them protected from Danger, and bring them Long Life.
Think of the Buddha and all the Enlightened Buddhas of all the Three Times in the Three Worlds, and their Great Attainments, and call upon their merits to Portect and brinbg you Prosperity, Health, Happiness, Wealth and Long Life.
Chant the Maha Namasakara 3 times before the Kata for the amulet, to Revere and Invoke the Buddha first. This is necessary to perform before chanting any Kata to any Buddhist amulets.

Luang Por Sanit was born on 28th April 2468 BE in Sri Maha Po in the Province of Prajinburi, with the name 'Sanit Mee Pongs'. He ordained at the age of 23 in 2491 BE, and was given the Ordained Name of 'Yasintaro'. Luang Por Sanit Yasintaro was a 'Pra Aryasongk' (Thai term for an ascended Arya Sangha), who liked solitude, and would spend most of his time on Tudong solitary forest wandering and the 13 austerities of Tudong Practices, and meditate in the forest with Vipassana Kammathana Mindfulness methods, to develop his insights and Wicha.
He was known to have avoided gathering possessions and remained ready for 'light travel', and was unattached to material things. He was well known for his great compassion (Metta) and readiness to receive and assist devotees with their problems in life, and selflessly serve Buddhism. He would always welcome all people equally, regardless of their status or wealth, or lack of it.
Luang Por Sanit was an Adept in many Magical Wicha, including his famous Wicha Jorakhae crocodile amulets, and his Ga carved crow amulets. and was also able to heal people with ailments, and remove curses and black magick spells. The popularity of his amulets is also derivative of the fact that ppeople say that he who wears one can notice the effects very easily, which of course makes it easy to feel confidence and faith in the amulet.
Luang Por Sanit was also said to be able to foresee when somebody was coming to see him, and would know how many people would be coming, as well as knowing why they were coming to ask for help. When he made predictions, they always came true, which of course made him extremely popular with Devotees seeking their future, and raised his name and the reputation of his to the Legendary Status.
Luang Por Sanit passed away on the 14th March 2542 at age 74, after 51 Years of Ordained Life. His remains were preserved for many years within a glass coffin for Devotees to Pay Reverence and Beseech Blessings, because his remains did not rot or disseminate, which is considered a Miracle to Thai Buddhist Folk. His hair has on occasions sprouted and grown and turned into Pratat Crystalline Relics. However, Luang Por Sanit's Remains have now finally recveived their due cremation for his further ascension, and the relic is no longer in the glass coffin in the present era.
