Khun Phaen Prai Kumarn Pim Niyom 2515 BE Block 2 Nuea Khaw Hniaw Sukh 9 Takrut + Look Bat Gammagarn - Luang Phu Tim
Gammagarn version of the now Fully accepted and highly preferred Khun Phaen Pi 15, and indeed a now highly sought after Pra Niyom Master Class Amulet, The Pra Khun Phaen Prai Kumarn Pi 15 Pim Yai Block Tong Hlueang (Block 2) Hlang Dtok Dtaeng Niyom, in Nuea Khaw Hniaw Sukh Long Sai Rae Tong Kam, with 9 Takrut Sariga, and a Look Bat ancient bead in rear face, from the Great Luang Phu Tim, of Wat Laharn Rai.
This amulet was taken to Ajarn Pisek at the Luead Ban Kaay Amulet Society in Rayong for examination, and was confirmed to be 100% authentic by Ajarn Pisek, who declared it to be from one of the Gammagarn special models which were pressed in the period beween 2514 and 2515 BE. The Pra Khun Phaen 15 is in truth a series which includes amulets pressed during the years 2505 BE to 2515 BE, with a vast pantheon of different models and variations. For ease of definition, they are all mostly referred to as Pra Khun Phaen Pi 15. It is expected that time will see further subcategorisation as the series is slowly catalogued into different categories.
This exhibit is encased in solid silver custom casing included in the price. in excellent condition and well kept, with highly refined details and features, and worthy of show and is accepted for presentation in many official competitions. This exhibit is a Gammagarn version which according to Ajarn Pisek was made in 2514 and released with the 2515 BE series distributed as a Gammagarn amulet to major sponsors and close devotees of esteem, and is hence further admissible in competitions of its Genre, and highly eligible for prize winning if such were of interest to the owner.
The front face of the amulet has 5 Takrut Tong Daeng Sariga embedded in the Muan Sarn Sacred Powder Clay, and the rear face has a further 4 Takrut with a single Look Bat bead inserted into the center, These were special Gammagarn versions, of which many different ones were made to distribute to respected sponsors and temple committee members.
This exhibit is in excellent condition, which under close perusal under the eye loupe reveals the amulet to be made from a base of Nuea Khaw Hniaw Sukh blessėd sticky rice, and Prai Kumarn powders within the Muan Sarn. The greenish-white marbled effect seen in mixture of Prai Kumarn Powders and Khaw Hniaw Sukh is highly evident, shimmering through the fluffy golden sheen of the Sai Rae Tong Kam.
Since the confirmation of the reality of the Block 2 Khun Phaen Luang Phu Tim of 2515 BE, this edition has become one of the hottest prospects of the decade. Now is the time to study and collect, for the near and far future will make the Block 2 Edition as unaffordable as the Block Raek has become in the present day. In fact, the mainstream high end publications and many of the top entrepreneur collectors are now placing them in their showrooms at ever more highly elevated prices, since their general acceptance has become a reality.
Below; Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Pi 15 Amulets in the Famous Amata Siam Publication, which focuses on amulets of authenticity and high reputation, and has joined the ranks of those who 'cheer' the Pra Khun Phaen, and who are now auctioning and entering the amulets in competitions. Three major encyclopaedic works have already been released in the last 2 years to catalogue the full pantheon, and the amulets are now beginning to disappear from the streets as the collectors and speculators snap them up and put them away in their safes.
Above and Below; you can see the Khun Phaen Pi 15 already appearing in the famous 'Amata Siam' publication. Some showrooms are aldready showing prices of $5000 - $7000 for some models of Khun Phaen Pi 15.
It is important to look for the presence of Khaw Hniaw Sukh and Sai Rae Tong Kam/Tong Daeng, as well as Pong Prai Kumarn within all different types and colours of Muan Sarn sacred powders of Khun Phaen LP Tim, after one has perused the 'Pim' (visual design features) as first priority. The Pim (design features) itself is easy to forge with modern cgi, but the Muan Sarn Sacred Clay ingredients can not be affordably replicated in forgeries.
Hence, once one has developed the ability to recognise the edition and block press (pim) with the naked eye and under the eye loupe, the next and more important step, is to examine and confirm the presence of authentic Muan Sarn ingredients within the sacred Clay. The Block Tong Hlueang mold was created after the previous block press mold broke, the 'Block Hin Meed Gone', which was carved from the sharpening stones used by monks to sharpen their razor blades to shave their heads. Block Tong Hlueang is preferred over the Block Hin Meed Gone, and carries a slightly higher price-tag and eminent status to the Block Hin Meed Gone with the Wongarn Pra Niyom Collector Circles.
The all-time classic Original Wat Laharn Rai Release of the Sacred Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn of the Great Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai is one of the most famous amulets of all time, and highly renowned for its true power to bring prosperity and good business, power of attraction and mercy charm to the wearer. We guarantee authenticity with this item, as we do with all amulets in our showroom.
The reason this amulet became so world famous and popular, even in the time when Luang PhuTim was still alive, is because everybody who owned one, recounted that business and personal success and prosperity had increased constantly and steadily since wearing the amulet.
This particular exhibit has pristine features and is 'Ongk Kroo Doo Ngaay' - easily identifiable for its classic appearance, with no visual discrepancies, and the evident presence of authentic Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim, and small elements of Khaw Hniaw Sukh blessed sticky rice, which is an essential element to be found present within all Khun Phaen Prai Kumarn amulets from Luang Phu Tim.
The presence of Pong Prai Kumarn within the Muan sarn, and the fluffy flaky texture which arises from the Khaw Hniaw Sukh sticky rice, and Sai Rae Tong Kam Gold Leaf is unmistakable in this exhibit, making it easy to authenticate for its classic appearance, which cannot be properly replicated in forgeries.
The recent events with confirmed and respected living initiates of Luang Phu Tim coming out to confirm and reveal the full story of the making of the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, along with presenting photographic visual evidence of the facts, has served to dispel and doubts or confusion about the reality of the Pra Khun Phaen 15 series. This, and many other conclusive forms of evidence have served to open up the truth and reveal this edition, which has been deliberately, or through oversight, hidden from the public, by a few powerful monopolists for many decades.
The edition has stayed with the local folk, and did not fall into the hands of the speculators, who have controlled the information available about all the many models which were actually made by Luang Phu Tim. That era is now over, and the Khun Phaen Pi 15 has taken its rightful position amongst the ranks of Pra Niyom amulets of the Tamniab Official Pantheon of Luang Phu Tim.
Above; Ajarn Pisek of the Glum Anuraks Pra Krueang Luang Phu Tim speaks on National TV to break the News and destroy the Myths about the Pra Khun Phaen Prai Kumarn of Luang Phu Tim (created by Monopolists who only managed to get the 2517 BE edition in their possession, and 1. were unaware of the truth, as well as jealously blocking any editions they did not control, out of greed and prejudice). Luang Phu made other editions throughout the years between 2505 to his passing, with the 2515 BE edition now becoming the most preferred of all, overtaking the 2517 BE 'Block Raek' series
Ajarn Pisek has broken these myths, by revealing that Luang Phu Tim began to make and distribute Pra Khun Phaen in the year 2493 (Year of the Tiger). He then made his second edition in the year 2505 BE, and continuously distributed them throughout until his passing. But that in truth, the old devotees who grew up around Wat Laharn Rai (including Ajarn Pisek), did not wear the 2517 BE so called Pim Niyom edition, rather, that the true preferred edition of the local devotees who we close to Luang Phu, wear and collect the 2515 BE edition as the most preferred edition.

The Block Tong Hlueang was used to press Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn after the Block Hin Meed Gone broke. It was first used before the block press was given fine tuning, and then also again after having been filed down and carved to a more detailed and subtly styled detail, with the first pressings being known as 'Long Pim Block Tong Hlueang Gon Dtok Dtaeng'. The more refined version was then given the name 'Block Tong Hlueang Hlang Dtok Dtaeng (Niyom)'. The Block Tong Hlueang press is also known by local devotees of the Era as 'Pim Sum Khad' or 'Pim Sao Khad', and also other names. All of the different names refer to the very same Pim.

After the true Looksit and current mythbusters have revealed the truth, the most preferred edition is now becoming the 2514-2515 BE (Khun Paen 15). It is said that those who have tried to fake and ride on the back of Luang Phu, to make their riches with lies and fakery, must have their day of reckining. Luang Phu Tim is said to have gained stream entry and advanced beyond Sotapanna to become Anagami, and this in itself makes the abuse which has occurred over the years, a serious sin against an Arya Sangha, to try to discredit authentic editions which Luang Phu may have created.
The Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn is a preferred choice of both the wise investor and devotee, as well as the perfect choice for those Devotees who seek the immense power of Luang Phu Tim's now Legendary Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Pi 15. Since the confirmation of the reality of various previously undiscovered editions of Khun Phaen Luang Phu Tim, and 'coming out' of various Looksit Aek (direct initiates of LP Tim who were involved in the making of the Khun Phaen Prai Kumarn amulets between the years 2505 BE and 2515 BE, the amulet world has been taken by storm, and turned upon its head.
Below; Luang Phu Tim is seen with Ajarn Piarn Wit (left), thirtheenth direct initiate of Luang Phu Tim, during the time around 2514 BE when he was helping Luang Phu as a lay practitioner. Ajarn Piarn Wit and various other direct devotees and initiates of Luang Phu have now come out into Public to reveal the facts, for documentation and confirmation.
The 2515 BE Block 2 series was the first edition to come to light in this revolution, that was undiscovered by the Samakom Pra and the 'Chang Ga Buay Puttapanich' commercial monopolists (self claimed 'experts'), who forced acceptance of only the 2517 BE edition, and demanded the amulet world should only accept the amulets which they themselves possessed to be classified.
One big mistake the Chang Ga Buay Puttapanich and Samakom Pra had made, was to put the name of Ajarn Piarn Wit and Ajarn Sukhothai and other Ajarns such as Ajarn Maeng, into their catalogues and encyclopaedic publications, as being the Ajarns involved in the making of the Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn amulets of Luang Phu Tim. because after the denial of the 2515 BE edition, and statements that Ajarn Piarn Wit was the maker of a later edition in 2517 BE which Luang Phu did not bless were made.
Below; Ajarn Piarn Wit watches Luang Phu Tim perform a blessing on the car of a devotee circa 2514 BE
But then suddenly, Ajarn Piarn Wit came out to speak thorugh this provocation, and provided photographic evidence and official confirmations to show that firstly, Ajarn Piarn Wit was ordained and initiated by Luang Phu Tim in 2514 BE, and assisted in the ,making of the 2515 BE 'Sao Khad Block 2' edition with Luang Phu. he provided many pieces of evidence, and the fact that he was already stated to be the 13th direct initiate of Luang Phu Tim and directly involved in the making of the Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn
Above; Video interview conducted by Mor Grit, famous collector of Amulets of Luang Phu Tim, and Talkshow host, inquires with Ajarn Piarn Wit, the 13th direct Initiate of Luang Phu Tim, who ordained with Luang Phu and was one of his close assistants, about the truth of the 2515 BE and earlier editions of Pra Khun Phae, and receives direct confirmation of the facts, authenticating these editions. The beginning of the video shows photographic evidence of Ajarn Piarn Wit as a young man ordained with Luang Phu, as well as serving him as a Lay Practitioner over the years, helping Luang Phu to make amulets, and serving his needs.
Below; Locals of Ban Kaay in Rayong show their Pra Khun Phaen 15 amulets, and tell of their knowledge and experience of the true facts, as local devotees of Luang Phu Tim, who know the truth, much better than a load of so called experts from Bangkok and other Provinces, who happened to pass by decades ago, snap up a few amulets and try to make the whole remaining pantheon disappear, be manipulating public beliefs with their own self sponsoring publications, and influence with the media. Those days are over now in the days of the Internet, where communication has become much easier, and the new younger generation of amulet aficionados have applied their knowledge of internet to put the pieces of the puzzle back together, and reveal the truth to the world.

The Samakom Pra were dumbfounded when Ajarn Piarn Wit came out to confirm the edition which is as good as 'from the horses mouth'. In video interview with a famous expert and collector and TV star, he called Ajarn Sukhothai, the official expert who first catalogued all the officially accepted Khun Phaen into their respective series block presses, and named them. In the telephone conversation with Ajarn Sukhothai (who can be considered to be amongst the top 3 officially accepted people in the Know), Ajarn Sukhothai confirmed the existence and authenticity of the 2515 edition, and the previous editions which were made between 2505 BE and 2515 BE.

Below; Ajarn Piarn Wit reveals the truth of the pressing of the 2515 BE Khun Phaen 15, and that Luang Phu blessed them. He explains that the til now preferred 'Block Raek supposed 'first block' was actually the third block press development, and that the Block Sorng (2nd Block Press), preceded it. Ajarn Piarn Wit confirms the reality of the Khun Phaen 2515 BEwith great sincerity.

Since recent years, some of the aged looksit of Luang Phu Tim have revealed many unheard of facts about the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn of Luang Phu Tim, making public knowledge of the many different Pim and Block presses more widespread, and breaking the tight grip monopoly of the 'Sian Pra Niyom' Experts.

Below is an example of a Block 2 Pim Yai from a famous Amulet Auctioneer Magazine in Nuea Chompoo from some years ago now, which auctioned for 65,000 Thai baht (Roughly 1950$ US) - the Pi 15 amulets have already quadrupled the below price in various auction rooms and shows.
The block tong hlueang was then refined further, separating the two versions of the brass block mold into 'Gorn Dtok Dtaeng' (before refinement) and 'Hlang Dtok Dtaeng' (after further refinement - these are 'Pim Niyom' most preferred).
Below; screenshot of one of the major online auction rooms for Thai language devotees shows the Pra Khun Phaen 15 (พระขุนแผน 15) to be now commanding prices of 2000$ up to 6000$ per amulet.
Below; some more examples of the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn - these belonging to the Block Hin Meed Gone amulet, in a Samakom Pra amulet appreciation society encyclopedia. The block hin meed gone series preceded the block tong hlueang and was less refined, and was superceded by the block tong hlueang after the block hin meed gone broke.
The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim, are renowned for their power, made from the skullbone of a Hoeng Prai. Luang Phu Tim's Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, Pim Yai, and Pim Lek amulets are amongst the rarest and most highly sought after amulets in Thailand, and are very difficult to encounter, due to having been made in small number editions, which is nowhere near enough to provide for the masses of devotees around the world who seek such an amulet as this.
One can see a very fluffy and rich texture to the Sai Rae golden coating on the surface of the amulet, in reaction with the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders. It is a part of the amulet appreciation society expert's method of authentication to examine and study the appearance of how the Sai Rae Tong develops in surface texture, tonality and porosity of the surface, as well as the appearance of Luang Phu Tim's famous Pong Prai Kumarn which rises up and through the surface.
We ourselves feel that all of Luang Phu Tim's amulets are equally Sacred and Powerful in their own way, regardless of which edition or which temple he blessed them at, but we do, as do all Amulet Appreciation Fanatics, recognise the categories of preference within the hierarchies of different editions, which is for us one of the more subtle and fascinating parts of the study of high end amulets within the collector scene, and part of the fine art of learning how to recognise and value Sacred Amulets of High Preference and Rarity.
The Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim amulet, has has been one of the most popular amulets in the whole Pantheon of Thai Buddhist Amulets of the last century, and of all time, and is now almost impossible to encounter commonly anywhere in any amulet emporium, except for the most elite showrooms, and at elevated prices.
The Sacredness of the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn is legendary and unquestioned in Thailand, and its magical power is commonly accepted by all. The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn are considered to be amongst the most powerful powders to empower amulets in existence.
This amulet is a wonderful opportunity for devotees who seek the true power of a world class amulet from a world class edition, and a wonderful Ongk Kroo reference study exhibit to peruse under the eye loupe. The amulet is a perfect and authentic study material, to train the eyes as to the appearance of the Muan Sarn and Surface textures of the Classic amulets of Luang Phu Tim Hence, the amulet is also a perfect 'Ongk Kroo' reference study material for students of the Pantheon, and will increase your chances of spotting an essential rarity at the right price, and without danger of risking a fakery.
We highly recommend this amulet as a sound investment and an extremely rare opportunity to obtain and be the proud owner of an authentic Wat Laharn Rai release model of the Eternal Classic Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn 2515 BE, of Luang Phu Tim.
A highly attractive and rare Sacred Amulet, that is truly Powerful and stands as the Master Class Amulet of its Category, and is considered a Most Highly Prized addition to any Master Class Collector's Showcase, and more importantly, is 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.
The making of the Muan Sarn Sacred Pong Prai Kumarn powders Luang Phu Tim, came from the Wicha which Luang Phu had inherited through apprenticeship form one of his high Kroo Ba Ajarn, Kroo Ba Sangkh Tao, who was also his true Uncle. Part of the formula included Pong Prai Maha Phuudt, which was made from the Skull of a male Kumarn who died in the Womb, and who died on a Saturday and was cremated on a Tuesday. This is part of the ancient Khmer Necromantic Formula for Authentic Powerful Prai Occult Magic, as practiced in Ancient Times. It is said that Pra Kroo Sangkh Tao's Wicha Akom was so powerful that when he spat on the floor, the floor would crack where his spit would fall.
Due to the fact that Monks are not allowed to seek and find this Sacred and Extremely Powerful Necromantic Substance, Luang Phu would perform Korb Kroo Initiation for protection against Black Magic and the Phuudtaa Spirit Phantoms, so they could go forth to seek and find the substances to donate to him for the making of the Pong Prai Kumarn.
The Initiated Lay Devotees and Apprentices to his sorcery, would then wait for the news of the right circumstances of death of Kumarn Ghosts, and go out to collect the substances and prepare them as instructed with the Wicha. They would seek the permission of the relatives of the dead, to obtain the substances to enable the ghosts of the deceased to receive merits to free them from their Karmic residues by donation of their mortal remains to be made into amulets.
They would receive the ceremonial ritual liberation of their souls from Luang Phu Tim, who would speak with the spirits of the dead to receive their acknowledgement for the process of transformation through the Nibbana Sutra, and the Muan Sarn would then be prepared according to the Dtamra Saiyasart of Necromancy, to make the Pong Prai Kumarn.
Luang Phu instructed his apprentices and the relatives of the Funerals to take care not to incinerate the whole skeleton, but to keep the skulls to bring to Luang Phu to use them for the making of the Pong Prai Kumarn. This is one of the reasons why his Pong Prai Kumarn is so powerful, because it does not contain the skeleton bone powders, rather, only those of the skulls.
As a result, Luang Phu Tim's Pong Prai Kumarn has been recorded by experience of devotees to posses the highest Maha Pokasap Power of all Pong Prai Kumarn ever made, with Immense Metta Maha Niyom and Klaew Klaad Power, to induce Mercy Charm, Attract Lucky Fortunes (e.g. Lottery Winnings), and to Protect from Deadly Accidents and Disasters.
Below; pages from an encyclopaedic publication from the amulet appreciation society which defines a list of amulets which Luang Phu Tim blessed during his life, and which confirms the Block 2 series to be within his 'Tamniab' pantheon of amulets, and authentically blessed by LP Tim during his lifetime. This is in contrary to false rumors which were spread years ago, which caused the series to be ignored for decades until the information finally surfaced and was brought to light.
As a result, the Block 2 series is not one of the hottest topics of the amulet scene in the present era, and immense furor has arisen, raising the interest of devotees around the nation and further afield in foreign shores. This of course will result in a repeat experience of gradual depletion, as the collectors race to obtain and keep the amulets for their own collections and for Bucha.
Luang Phu Tim Isarago, is of course not only one of the most highly acclaimed and sought after Guru Monks for his amulets, he is the holder of the highest esteem in Thai Buddhist amulet history for Pong Prai Kumarn powders. Luang Phu Tim, is Internationally Acclaimed, for his famous Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, and Look Om powder balls. As to the classic 'Rian' type coin image amulets which have become all time favourites, and eternally, world famous classic amulets of the high end variety. His rian Jaroen Porn, and Rian Nakprok Paed Rorp are amongst the most highly sought after coin amulets of all
Since his passing, his devotees and apprenticed monks, have now become the world's top living masters for the making of Pra Khun Phaen Pong Pra Kumarn, and literally dozens of encyclopaedic books, have been printed, documenting both this great master monk, and his classic amulets of high esteem.
Buddhist monk coins with his image and others with Buddha images and other deities and imagery are amongst the most highly collected amulets and most expensive of all of the great Luang Phu Tim. He has various direct lineage apprentices, Who are continuing to progress and spread his most powerful and world-famous Wicha.
Of all of these masters, certainly the most famous, preferred and highly respected Looksit, was Luang Por Sakorn, of Wat Nong Grub, who is also now deceased, and whose amulets are fast becoming just as highly sought after.
In second place one could possibly estimate the great Luang Phu Sin, of Wat Laharn Yai, and in third place, possibly, Pra Ajarn Somkid, of Wat Beung Tata (Rayong).
