This Yantra was first used on the rear face of an official amulet edition, with the first edition Rian Run Raek Guru Monk Coins. The Yant Trinisinghae is not only powerful for Maha Lap and Serm Duang (improve fate and destiny), but also for being highly effective against Black Magick, Ghosts and Demons.
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.

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. Of the 28,875 Pim Yai amulets made, 10,000 of them were donated to Princess Julaporn, to distribute as a gift to the people who made merits donating to build the Sirirat Hospital.
