There was never a ceremony to invite the Devas so majestic as the ceremony performed by Mae Chee Bun Ruean, which included not only the ubiquitous incenses, puffed rice, flower garlands in 7 different colors, but also a total of 375 Kinds of Food Offerings! The Benja and 9 Saewadta Chadtras offered, 5 sork high (‘sork’being a Thai form of measurement, meaning ‘5 elbows’, slightly over 2 Feet per ‘sork’). Five Golden and Silver Bai Sri were place in offering, also 5 sork high in stature.
The chanting ceremonyn to bless the holy water with the assistance of the attendiing Devas, was then mixed with the sacred powders used for the muan sarn clays of the amulets. Many great and psychically attained monks were invited to empower and bless the sacred ingredients for the amulets, and the amulets themself after their pressing;
1. Pra Prohm Muni (LP Phin Suwajo), of Wat Bovornives Vora Viharn, 2. Pra Worawaet Kunajarn (LP MIan Bpappasaro), of Wat Pra Chetupon Wimon Manghalaram, 3. Pra Maha Racha Manghalajarn, 4. Pra Kroo Winaiton (LP Fueang Yana Bpaheebpo), 5. Pra Sa-Ard Apiwattano, of Wat Sampant Wongs, 6. Pra Kroo Nor, of Wat Klang Ta Ruea, in Ayuttaya, 7. Pra Ajarn Bung, of Wat Mai Nong Sen, and 8. Pra Luang Por Chorp Sammajaree, of Wat Awut Wigasitaram in Thonburi, as well as the prior and later blessings and empowerments made by Mae Chee Bun Ruean Herself.
In Addition, during the Deva Abhiseka, the Ruesi Yogi Ajarn Rerb (Ajarn Chern Jantr Paetch), who was a very powerful and famous Ruesi of the Era, assisted in empowering the amulets.
Then a second empowerment session was performed, with the amulets pressed and placed covered with 7 layers of 7 green and 7 white cloths covering them, placed upon an altar in the center of the shrine room.
Many people in the amulet world have been interested in knowing what was used in the making of the sacred powder admixtures, and so we find it impportant to document and list them in this article, for posterity and study;
1. Sacred Powders from a Host of Great Masters of that Era and Previous Eras, through the lineage of each Master who donated and empowered the powders.
2. Powders from Wat Chetupon, Wat Sri Totsataep, Wat Sampant Wongs(Wat Sampantawongs).
3. Broken powdered pieces of ancient sacred amulets.
4. Powdered up herbal ingredients with magical properties, ground up to make a brownish herbal powder.
5. Earths from 7 Prosperous Ports, and the banks of 7 Sacred Lakes. 6. Powders made from taking ancient Kampir Grimoires of Sorcery (Sacred in themself), of both the Bailan Beige Parchmnent variety, and the Samut Khoi black Parchment variety of Grimoire, and burn them and grind into powders, with 5 repetitions of admixture, adding powders from previous editions of amulets.
6. Earths from sacred Pilgrimage Places of the Life of the Buddha in India, brought back to be used for the admixture, to bring Sacred Buddhakhun Power to the amulets, with earths from the important places of the Buddha’s Life, such as the Buddha’s birth, earths from around the Bodhi Tree where the Buddha’s Enlightenment occurred, the place where he gave his first sermon in Varanasi (the Dhamma Chakra), and earths from the place of the Buddha’s Passing into Nibbana.
7. Earths from important places where the Buddha performed great Sermon, or Important Events in his Life occurred, and which are to this day, all sacred places and shrines to the Buddha.
8. Pong Poon Khaw Hin Rachaburi powders.
9. Sacred Talcs invoked with Negative Space inscribed Yantra Spells.
10. Nam Oy Sugarcane Juice.
The amulets are made from a Muan Sarn Sacred Powders composed of a large variety of sacred clay earths, herbal pollens and powders, and Puttakun powder. Herbs and Sacred ingredients with all sorts of different blessings and powers were added to give a complete range of blessings.
All these Muan Sarn ingredients were ground into fine powders, and separated into different admixtures, and mixed with holy water from the first Buddha Abhiseka and Deva Abhiseka Blessing Ceremony. The amulets were pressed as the Pra Somdej Pra Putta Mongkol Maha Lap (Buddha Manghala), Pra Nakprok, Pra Putto, and other forms such as various kinds of Pra Somdej, Nang Kwak, and other amulets.
Above and beyond this, the amulet is a Sacred Artifact of Buddhanussati, an authentic Sacred Buddha Image Votive Tablet, blessed and made in 2499 by Kun Mae Chee Bun Ruean, in two ceremonies held at Wat Sampantwongs and Wat Sarnath, both Mae Chee Bun Ruean Lineage Temples.
The amulets were handed out to devotees during a later ceremony who came to donate and support the installation of the Putta Sima temple boundary of Wat Sarnath, and many of the amulets were of course held for burial within shrine rooms and Chedi Stupas of choice, for later distribution, or accidental rediscovery long into the future.
This is a common practice with amulets, where they are placed in a hiding place chamber (Kru), or buried under the ground or under the floor of sacred places, as a way of preserving the fact that there was once a Buddha who walked upon this earth. Hiding Place amulets are also stored in Kru Chambers as a repository to use for fundraising by removing a number and distributing them to devotees who donate to the temple (Note; The placement and removal of amulets from Kru for providing a method of creating fundraisers only became a practice during the last century, after Buddhist amulets became a source of fundraising).
According to the written documentation of Luang Phu Tet Nitesago, the Pong Solos powders made by Mae Chee Bun Ruean to make the amulets, were made using the Wicha Prohmasat (Brahma Sastra), which invokes High Brahmas and Ariya Sangha (Enlughtened Beings), of the Sutawas celestial level, to empower the powders. They were made to distribute to devotees, and fund the installation of the Pra Putto Chinarach Jom Muni Buddha statue of Wat Sarnath.
The amulets have become very famed for their miraculous powers, due to many stories of miraculous events connected with devotees and the amulets. Mae Chee Bun Ruean invoked the spiritual Connections of the angelic beings of the Buddhist, Christian and Islamic Faiths to imbue their blessings, to protect people of all religions, who keep the precepts of goodness and abstention from evil acts. The real name of the powders is ‘Pong Maha Prohm Ariya Bodhisattva Phuu Bpen Jao’ (Powders of the Enlightened Brahmas who are Lords of their Existence’).
This was because of Ajarn Seng, who taught and revealed that all three religions, speak of the same one Super-consciousness or ‘God’ (Buddha-hood for Buddhists), but which different cultures over time split and adapted into their own social structures, and changed them according to their needs, but that all three are derived from the same fact that enlightened beings gave teachings to unenlightened humans, and were worshiped for it as messiahs, prophets, or gods, and became founders of these religions.
The great Luang Por Lee is said to have found the 2499 BE Somdej Mongkol Maha Lap so powerful that he basked for some of the broken ones to be given to him to mix into the sacred clay of his famous sacred Pra Bai Po Jak amulets of the 2500 BE 25 Centuries of Buddhism Mega Nationwide Amulet Ceremony.
According to the Pra Tamma Khant, all Somdej amulets must be made in numbers of 84,000, but it is rumored that the Pra Putta Mongkol maha lap amulets were made in much less numbers, which is an unconfirmed rumor, and would be dubious considering Mae Chee Bun Ruean’s tendency to be a stickler for proper ritual and adhere to the dtamrta of the Wicha.
The Pra Putta Mongkol Maha Lap amulet is often used as a substitute for the Pra Pong Solos of Luang Phu Tim (much more difficult to find and much more expensive). Luang Phu Tim himself was also invited to perform Nang Prok meditative empowerment on thje amulets, as he was 70 years old. Considered one of the best amulets of the 2500 BE Era of Thai Buddhist Amulets.
Hwaen Pirod 2460 BE Ancient Warrior Ring of Invincibility Luang Por Muang Wat Ban Tuan
The world famous Hwaen Pirod Ancient Warriors Ring of Luang Por Muang, made from Corpse Cloth Yantra Sinjana Cords with Lacquer Ancient Amulet. An immensely rare and sought after amulet of Luang Por Muang, of Wat Ban Tuan. Estimated Circa 2460 BE or earlier. Luang Por Muang Jantasaro of Wat Ban Tuan, Amper Ban Tuan, Kanjanaburi Province, is an Old Gaeji Ajarn Guru Monk of Great Fame who was in his Heyday during the First World War. He was around in the same era as the Great Luang Por Ngern of Wat bang Klan and was a very famous and revered Master during those days.
His most famous and sought after ancient amulets were and are now more than ever, his Rian Pum Luang Por Muang (differing faces Hnaa Hnum and Hnaa gae/Young Old Face) of 2460 and also his Waen Pirod Warrior Rings of Protection, which are even more extremely rare to find these days. Even during the time he was still alive, is Waen Pirod were a most sought after item, and anybody who owned one would be unable to convince to part with it.
Nowadays, his Waen Pirod are amongst some of the rarest items to be found in Thai Amulet collectorship, in the 'Krueang Rang' (Occult Talismans) Category of Amulets. Serious Collectors and Devotees of Essentially Rare amulets and Talismans in the Thai Collector scene are known to be very fervent about wanting to own a Waen Pirod of Luang Por Muang, which are so difficult to find, as to make them the dream of many a collector.
Most 'Sian Pra' (expert collectors and traders) will not sell their Waen Pirod, but will only place it in competition or on show for admiration, but hardly ever are prepared to part with them for any price.
This is because those in the know, are aware that Luang Por Muang did not make so many of these rings, for the fact that his method of making them adhered to the Ancient Wicha and that this meant, that the extremely complex methods used limited the amount he was able to make. So he never made that many, and would also not hand them out easily to just anybody, because he never made them in any mass quantities
In those days, Guru masters would not allow their devotees to assist in making mass productions, and so each amulet would pass only through the hands of the master and be self made and self empowered (this rule of course, does not apply to the case of smelted coins of course, and is specifically true for talismans, Takrut and similar hand made amulets). Luang Por did not make them for fundraising or other reasons, and would only make them for special reasons in special circumstances, for specific persons or reasons.
Their magic power is also unquestioned, for the way that Luang Por Muang would perform his Ritual Method of creating and empowering these rings of power in the ancient traditional method of applied Wicha (Sorcery).
He would use 'Pha Hor Sop Dtaay Hoeng' (cloth used to wrap Hoeng Prai corpses who died in sudden circumstances - a prerequisite for Prai Necromantic Sorcery power to be at its most powerful) cloth for their making. He use the full and complete 'Dtamra' (formula of legend) of the Wicha used during the Ancient Ayuttaya period, which he had received passed down to him from his lineage Masters, which was used by the first Kings of Thailand (Pra Naresuan Maharaj).
Once he has made and bound the rings into their shape and form, he would then perform Invocations and Ritual Methods of Empowerment, and then throw the rings into the blazing ritual fire. If the ring would burn, then he would destroy it and not use it, for this would mean that not enough Samadhi Meditative Concentration had been applied, and would begin again and make a new ring. Only the rings which did not burn in the fire, would be used. Those rings which proved through the fire test that they possessed true power, would be taken and covered in herbal lacquer to make them last for centuries (Pirod means burning flame, hence 'Waen Pirod' means Flaming Ring - and is fireproof).
Luang Por would use a reddish lacquer similar to Chinese lacquer which was used in those days, but which turns black in time. He would dip the rings many times to get a thick coating, but this kind of lacquer would slowly crack and form small openings as the years passed by, which is part of the immense beauty and attraction of the Waen Pirod of Luang Por Muang.
To authenticate and know what a real Waen Pirod (for indeed such a sought after item has many forgeries around) one should know to examinig the lacquer and see the slight cracks and the beige brownish sinjana cord and corpse cloth within that is visible through the cracks of the lacquer. One should also notice small areas of reddish tints where the original red lacquer color still resonates through the darkened lacquer surface.
Kata Waen Pirod
Om Pra Pirod Khord Pra Pinai
(Chant 9 Times when placing the ring on or hanging it on your neckchain for wearing)
Om Pra Pinai Klaay Pra Pirod
(Chant 9 times when removing the ring, or taking of your neck-chain or pendant holder)
Luang Por Muang's famous Waen Pirod is reputed to have many magical powers, among them are said to be invincibility and safety in dangerous situations, as well as in the olden days, as people would have to enter the deep jungle, that the ring will protect against all sorts of dangerous animals, ghosts and demons, and poisonous beats such as cobras, scorpions and hunting animals such as the tiger.
Demons and Prai Hian Ghosts will not dare to approach. Maha Ud (Gun-Stopper), and protection agains all sorts of weaponry. This is a truly ancient amulet, and is is roughty one century old.
