Pra Somdej Prok Po Ok Rong 5 Traimas Empowerments 2518 - 2523 BE - Nuea Pong - Luang Phu To Wat Pradoo Chimplee
The Pra Somdej Prok Po Bodhi tree Buddha amulet, was made in 2518 BE, but were released after 5 Years of consecutive Empowerment, with a final Buddha Abhiseka Blessing Ceremony at Wat Pradoo Chimplee in the year 2523 BE. These amulets were empowered and blessed by the Great Luang Phu To for five whole Traimas Empowerments (3 months of rainy retreats with nightly empowerments)who presided over the Grand Blessing Ceremony.
This edition recieved 3 months of immersion in Holy Prayer Water with blessings from Luang Phu To throughout each Trimester of the whole five Years of Traimas Blessings.Luang Phu would always say that this edition has the power to bring 'Kwaam Rom yen Bpen Sukh' (peace and happiness), and should be worn for this purpose. But it is said that all of Luang Phu's amulets also protect with powerful Klaew Klaad, and improve Business with Maha Lap and Metta maha Niyom.
The Somdej Prok Po amulet is one of four different Pim (models) which were made in 2518 BE, comissioned by Luang Pho To from Wat Mai Amataros (Bang Khun Prohm) temple, who were about to press an edition, and Luang Pho decided to collaborate in their creation. The temple of Wat bang Khun Prohm also released Pra Somdej of this model in the same year, using the same block press for the front faces.
This edition was to be the first edition made using the modern methods of block press, which the comittee at Wat Pradoo Chimplee did not yet have much experience in, and so, during the year 2517 BE, Luang Phu To asked Pra Kroo Wirojana of Wat Mai Amataros (Wat Bang Khun Prohm Nai), to arrange for the design, and creation of the block presses of the series.Various kinds of sacred powders were used, including Nuea Poon Hoi, Nuea Gesorn, Nuea Bailan, and Nuea Pong Nam Man.
Once Pra Kro Wirojana had finished making the series, he brought the batch to Luang Phu To at Wat Pradoo Chimplee for him to receive and bless for release. Luang Phu released some amulets in 2518 BE, but before having released many, it became aparrent that the amulets were too similar to the edition released at Wat bang Khun Prohm, so he decided to retract the edition and keep them for some years, to bless and spray with prayer water, and release them at a later date, to avoid confusion.
The four different models of Pra Somdej created in this 2518 BE series were; 1. Pra Somdej Prok Po Ok Rong (Buddha under Bodhi tree) 2. Pra Somdej Sam Liam Pim Kha Dto (Triangular Model with Table Leg Dais), 3. Pra Pong Pim Jantr Loi (small round lozenge shaped Buddha Amulet), and 4. Pra Pid Ta Maha Sanaeh Pointy Feeted Closed Eyes Buddha amulet).
But this is where the similarity ends, because those of Luang Phu To were taken and given 5 years of Empowerment, and they have his name and the name of Wat Pradoo Chimplee on the rear face, and received their special 5 x 3 Month immersion in Prayer Water Blessing from the Master. This amulet is in perfect condition, without any flaws or wear and tear, making it very eligible for show in competition.
This amulet is considered to be one of the more easily reachable (affordable) amulets of the Pantheon of Famous Classics, and is very popular amulet with the upper middle-class devotees of Luang Phu To, who seek an authentically blessed amulet of esteem and respectable value from this master, but that won't necessarily cost them the deeds to their house to be able to afford.
The amulet measures 3 x 2 Cm,, and is in pristine condition. The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders are made from the famous Puttakun Yantra Powders of Luang Phu To, which derive many of their powers from the Wicha of Wat Plab.
The powerful magic and spell-casting abilities of Luang Phu To are of course one of the major influential factors as to why his amulets have become such priceless Masterpieces, and his special Muan Sarn Sacred Powders are another highly influential aspect of their popularity and fame.
Luang Phu To is said to have been able to grab the Sincana cord which monks use to attach to amulets in blessing ceremonies, and sense immediately which monks along the line of the Sincana cords had psychic powers, and which ones didn't.

This resulted in Luang Phu always choosing the best most powerful Masters to invite to attend his empowerment ceremonies to assist in the Blessing of amulets and Buddha Images. Luang Phu To remains to this day one of the top 10 Guru Masters in the recorded History of Thai Buddhist Amulet making, and most certainly one of the top 5 Monks of recent History, on an equal Par with the Great Luang Phu Tim (Wat Laharn Rai).
His amulets belong to the Master-Class status category, and carry immense status in the world of the amulet appreciation society, for their Authentic Sacred Power, and the Purity of the Monk who Blessed them. The amulets of Luang Phu To are famed and revered by devotees around the country and around the whole world, for the proven history of Metta Mahaniyom Maha Lap Klaew Klaad Kaa Khaay power to bless the devotee with lucky fortunes, safety, success and prosperity.
Luang Phu To began to make Muan Sarn Sacred Powders amulets first in the year 2470 BE, using the main ingredient of Pong Lob, which is the residue chalks fallen from the inscription of five rounds of 108 Sacred yantra spells, to create five different concentrates of Sacred Powders. These five powders are of course known as; Pong Bpathamang, Pong Ittijae, Pong Puttakun, Pong Trinisinghae, and Pong Maharach.
It is also known that Luang Phu To would use broken up amulets from Wat Plab, and also broken up pieces of Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram of the great Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri, are known to be present within the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of Luang Phu To's amulets.
Other Muan Sarn used for the amulets include Pong Puttakun from Por Tan Klai (Wat Hongs, Thonburi), and of course Luang Phu To would bless the amulets in Nam Montr Prayer Water, using a Clay Holy Water bowl in his Kuti Hut, with a Dragon design on the bowl. He would immerse the amulets in the holy water bowl, and When devotees would donate flowers to Luang Phu, he float the flowers in the prayer water bowl and use the offering to empower the amulets further.
This in fact, is one of the reasons that some amulets have different holy water stains on their surfaces than others, due to the different flowers Luang Phu would immerse in the holy water bowl where the amulets were soaking. Luang Phu would empower the amulets for the time of the Rainy season retreat (3 months), and repeatedly empower and bless them throughout this time. Some amulets were also released without immersion in prayer water.
The Pra Somdej Prok Po amulet is very popular with Devotees, for they are made from precisely the same Muan Sarn Sacred Powders as was used for the 2521, 2522 and 2523 BE Pidta Traimas Masterclass edition, which can cost up to even 40 times the price of a Pra Somdej Prok Po 2518 BE It is hence obvious why this amulet is such a popular amulet with the devotee of Luang Phu To.
