Pong Roop Muean Nang Sum Rakang Lek Berk Naedtr Edition 2514 BE Votive Tablet - Guru Monk Photo on Rear Face Luang Por Prohm Wat Chong Kae Only 500 Made
Pra Pong Luang Por Prohm Wat Chong Kae Pim Roop Muean Nang Sum Rakang Hlang Riab 2514 BE Pim Lek - Berk Pra Naedtr Edition (opening the eyes of the Buddha) - Released at Wat Chong Kae. Blessed also by many other great Masters including Luang Por To of Wat Pradoo Chimplee - this exhibit is extra special, because it has a Roop Tai Photo of Luang Por Prohm, of Wat Chong Kae on rear face. The Roop Tai is not present on standard versions of this amulet.
The presence of a blessed Roop Tai Photo of Luang Por Prohm on the rear face of the amulet, makes this a highly desirable and inimitable item for Bucha, and would be the pride of any true devotee and collector's showcase.
The amulet was released in Both the Chalong Monton Edition in 2514 BE, an d in the Berk Naedtr Edition of 2515 BE. During the Chalong Monton Release Blessing, Luang Por Prohm spent 11 days and 11 Nights empowering this edition. The amulets were also pressed again for the Berk Naedtr Edition, and were Blessed then by Luang Por Prohm at Wat Chong Kae in 2514 BE. It is hard to define which pressing of the two occasions the amulet is, for exactly the same block press was used to press them all, and some of them were kept to release in the other edition of the same year. Both editions hence used the same amulet, for which it is considered one and the same. This is indeed a classic Amulet of immense Metta Maha Niyom Serm Duang Power with Klaew Klaad Evasion of Dangers and Maha Lap Lucky Fortunes.
The front face features the classic image of Luang Por Prohm in meditative posture, which his inimitable tall sitting posture, which is instantly recognizable as being that of Luang Por Prohm. Luang Por Prohm sits within a bell shaped arch.
One can assume that this will have been of of a very few amulets which Luang Por himself will have blessed by hand during the ceremony which can be judged by the fact that a Roop Tai photo is manually attached to the front face, making this a special amulet with extra blessings from the hand of the master.
This is an extremely rare to find amulet, as is the case with all editions and all amulets of the Great Luang Por Prohm, who did not make too many editions of amulets, all of which have become high end Pra Niyom Classics of the Amulet Appreciation Societies and Collector Scene.
In any case, the small number of editions released by Luang Por Prohm, and the fact that he is one of the more prominently revered and sought after amulet Masters, means that between his true devotees and worshippers, and the Collector and Appreciation Societies, his amulets are far and few between to come by.
Story of the Berk Naedtr Edition
In the year 2514 BE around the dates of 23rd and 24th October, the Kana Gammagarn Comittees of various temples were present to discuss the arrangements for the upcoming Annual Kathina Robe Donation Ceremony to the Sangha at the temple of Wat Chong Kae, and the Comittee bestowed the duty of creating and sponsoring Muan Sarn Sacred Powders Amulets to Doctor Som Sukh Kong Urai, in order to have amulets at the ceremony to donate to the Committee Sponsors and Devotees who came to make merits and donations at the Kathina Ceremony.
The edition is called the 'Berk Pra Naedtr', which means 'Open the Eyes of the Buddha'. This refers to the Ceremony of Bringing Buddha Images to Life with the Chanting of the Dhamma Chakra (turning of the wheel of the Dhamma), which is the Buddhist Sutra which was given by Lord Buddha Sakyamuni when he first gave his First Sermon to the 5 Panca Vakee who became his first Monks of the Sangha. The Sermon explains the attainments leadiing to the Enlightenment of the Buddha, and is performed as a Ceremony to Empower Buddha Images and Amulets. With Buddha Images, the finalisation of the chanting is closed with the tracing of the eyes of the Buddha on the statue, which is then considered to mark the moment of the Buddha's Enlightenment and final Awakening, and hence 'Opens the Eyes' of the Buddha.
The amulets were blessed in the Year 2514 BE, by Luang Por Prohm at Wat Chong Kae in the final Buddha Abhiseka Cermeony, which performed the opening of the eyes of the Buddha Ritual on the Large Pra Pratan Buddha Image which had been created for donation to a temple in the Province of Prajinburi, which had not Pra Pratan Buddha image in the Uposatha Shrine Room, and this matter was passed on to Police Captain Gaj Bandit Chodtiyan, who brought the matter Luang Por Prohm at Wat Chong Kae to ask advice about how to get a statue for the Prajinburi Temple.
Luang Por Prohm was in favor of helping in this matter, and donated some Yantra Foils and Takrut to use in the smelting down of sacred Chanuan Metals to mix in with the Buddha Images which were to be created for the temples in need of Buddha Statues of Prajinburi. Luang Por Prohm gave instructions that once the Buddha Images were cast, they should be brought to Wat Chong Kae, so that Luang Por Prohm could perform the opening of the eyes of the Buddha statues.
The Piti Hlor Pra Pratan casting Ceremony of the Buddha Images was performed first at Wat Makasan in Bangkok, along with some editions of Sacred Amulets placed within the ceremony to receive the Blessings. In Buddha Image 2 Meter wide base was cast, and 9 Buddha Images with a Nine inch wide base were also cast, along with 84 Pra Kring Miniature Medicine Buddha Statuettes. 30 Great Master Monks attended the Ceremony to bless the statues and amulets, including some of the Legendary Great Guru Masters of the Time, such as Luang Por To of Wat Pradoo Chimplee, and Luang Por Tiam, of Wat Kasatra.
Once the Casting Ceremony had been performed, all of these statues and amulets were taken to Wat Chong Kae, for Luang Por Prohm to Bless, Empower and perform the Buddha Abhiseka on the Statues.The large Buddha Image was given the name of 'Pra Buddha Chodtigayan'. The Pra Kriing statuettes were given the name of 'Pra Kring Buddha Chodtigayan', and the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders amulets were given the name of "Pra Pong Run Berk Naedtr Buddha Chodtigayan' (Opening the Eyes of Chodtigayan Buddha Statue Edition).
