Lucky Goat Pae Maha Lap Luang Por Am

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

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.

The rear face shows the presence of all the classic features and muan sarn ingredients of a true Pra Somdej Wat Rakang of Somdej Dto

The contents of the Muan Sarn Sacred Clay reveal the necessary aspects and content expected from an authentic Pra Somdej Wat Rakang. The design of the front face is exquisite, as were all the block presses carved for Somdej Dto by the artisan Luang Sittigarn, one of the royal artisans of the Chang Sip Moo group of artisans.

Pra Somdej Wat Rakang is one of the classic Pra Somdej amulets of Somdej Dto, along with Pra Somdej Wat Gaes Chaiyo, and the Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm amulet as far as popularity, beauty, sacredness of Puttapisek ceremony and price range. Thereafter come other amulets which were found in the hiding place Kru chambers of various temples such as Wat sadter, Wat Tap Khaw, and Wat Kanlayanamit, which are despite their authenticity, much more affordable than those attributed to having been issued directly from Wat Rakang.


The Pra Somdej Wat Rakang amulet is the Keystone and Master amulet (Ongk Kroo) for all other Pra Somdej amulets. It is an image in the likeness of the Buddha sitting on a Dais, which was essentially created by Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri, of Wat Rakang Kositaram. There are various different ‘Pim’ (models) with varying design features.

The Pra Somdej Wat Rakang, are considered to have extremely powerful Buddha magic in them due to the richness of sacred powders and powerful blessings contained within from great master Somdej Dto. Its general appearance is that of an oblong about 2.4 cm wide up to 4 cm high (varies between these sizes), made from white sacred powders mixed together. The Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram Pim Gaes Talu Sum is Similar to the Pra Somdej Pim Pra Pratan, but has the ‘Pra Gaes’ Topknot piercing the arch at the top of the amulet. The Pim Jarod Sum (this model) just touches the arch or approaches it.

Below: serious diligent study of the rubbly roughened edges and the hardness, and contraction over long periods of time becomes evident when examined under the eye loupe, authenticating the true agedness of the Pra Somdej, which is hard and dense as stone, which is impossible to reproduce with forgeries.

The main Ingredients of the amulets (Muan Sarn Samkan) were made from a base of sea shells, dried rice left from alms round, the five sacred magic powders of Somdej Dto, and ‘Nam Man Dtang Iw’ (special oil for mixing). Nam Man Dtang Iw (Tang Oil).


Tang Oil, 'Tung' Oil in English, is a preferred oil for mixing and curing amulets with, for it is superior to any other oil as far as water resistance is concerned (one reason why Pra Somdej amulets can be soaked in water without going soft). The oil is much more resistant to mold than its derivatives, such as linseed oil.

The Dtamra must be made by creating exactly 84,000 amulets, equal to the number of Suttas of the Tripitaka. There are different Pim Song (shapes and sizes) of Pra Somdej Wat Rakang, but those which are officially recognized and listed by the ‘wongarn Pra Krueang’ as far as Somdej Wat Rakang amulets are concerned, basically consist of the following officially recognised Pim of Pra Somdej amulets; Pim Pra Pratan, Pim Chedi, Pim Prok Po, Pim Gaes Bua Dtum, Pim Gaes Talu Sum, and Pim Thaan Saem.

These Pim are then subdivided into various Block Press models and defined individually, for example with the Pim Yai, may be a Pim Yai Gaes Talu Sum, or a Pim Yai Gaes Jarod Sum, and so on.

There are also many Pim which are so varied, that they enter one single category called 'Nork Pim' which means 'doesn't fit into any of the regulated categories'. But this does not mean that Nork Pim amulets are not authentic, rather, they are less expensive and less preferred by high end collectors due to the difficulty in defining each of the many unusal models which were made.


In fact, we hope to be also presenting some Nork Pim category amulets of various masters to show, for they are just as authentic and sacred, and powerfully blessed, as many of their much more expensive models. To name one example would be the Pra Somdej Gaes Chaiyo Pim Prok Po Dtum (button Bodhi leaves), of Somdej Dto, which is much more affordable than the Somdej Gaes Chaiyo Jet Chan or Hok Chan Niyom.


Nork Pim amulets are becoming slowly categorized and filed within the official pantheons of many amulet societies in the present day, which means that they will also become much more highly valued in the future, and attain similar prices as Pim Niyom Competition Class Models such as this one.
