Bia Gae LP Kam Wat Po Bplam

Bia Gae amulets of  the Great Master Monk Luang Phu Kam, of Wat Po Bplam temple, in Ang Tong.

The Bia Gae of Luang Phu Kam of Wat Po Bplam, in Ang Tong Province, is counted as one of the five ‘Benjapakee’ Bia Gae of all time, along with the other 4 being the Bia Gae of LP Rod (Wat Nai Roeng), LP Bun (Wat Klang Bang Gaew), Luang Por Perm (Wat Klang Bang Kaew) and Luang Por Pak (Wat Bote). It is believed by devotees, that the Bia Gae of Luang Phu Kam, have immense power to ward off demons, ghosts and evil eye spells, as well as dissovle curses, and protect against poisonous beasts, and jungle fevers. They are said to also possess Maha Ud Gunstopper magic, and Metta Maha Niyom Mercy Charm, that recalls good luck into one’s life.

In the early era of his Bia Gae making, Luang Phu Kam would be able to get his ‘Bia’ cowrie shells from the local area around the temple, but after the year 2493 BE, as his Bia Gae became increasingly famous and renowned for their power, it became necessary to send devotees to places by the ocean, in order to find enough cowrie shells to satisfy the needs of devotees.

As to the Channaroeng and Krang Pastes used to seal the Bia Gae, it was taken from stingless beesnests found in the forest, or taken from Jom Pluak giant termite nests which were found in the vicinity around the temple. As the needs of devotees rose, there was not enough Muan Sarn available from these sources of magical ingredients, and Luang Phu Kam was forced to have to seek farther afield for the sacred ingredients necessary to continue making Bia Gae amulets in the numbers needed for his devotees.

The Bia Gae of Luang Phu Kam differ from those of other masters in their making method; Luang Pu Kam would smelt sacred leaden alloy in a pot until it liquified, and then pour it into the interior of bamboo sticks about one foot in length. The bamboo was then sealed with simple cloth, and the bamboo was quicly shaken and agitated. This would cause the cooling leaden sacred alloy to form into small pellets. These leaden pellets were then used to ‘feed’ the Parort Mercurial Metal. This caused the Mercury to make a different sound when shaking the Bia Gae, more like a rattle than a soft ‘thud’ from the mercury sliding around within interior of the Bia shell.

Luang Phu Kam would then take the Mercurial Alchemical substance and use Incantations to make the Parort Mercurial alloy flow into the Bia Gae shells. To do this, he would place the Bia Gae on a large tray, and use Ya Kaa grass to beat the tray whilst chanting Kata incantations, until the Parort Mercury would flow into the Bia shells of their own accord. Then they would be sealed with Chanaroeng, and a Takrut foil with Khom Agkhara inscriptions.

There are some special models, enclosed within a metallic casing, some oval with decorative borders, others shaped like a turtle. Very few special models (Dtua Kroo) were made, whereas most of them would be left bare, or cord wrapped with the shell poking out visibly. In the case of his Bia Gae that are not enclosed within metallic frames, the copper Takrut Tong Daeng is visibly affixed to the Channaroeng Paste which closes the mouth of the Bia shell. It is said that some devotees once removed the Parort Mercury, and that it was seen to glow with an aura, like neon light.

Once Luang Phu had finished the creation and primary empowerment process, he would take the Bia Gae into his Kuti hut and perform further solo empowerments in privacy.One can recognize the early, mid and later eras of Bia Gae, from the difference in Channaroeng paste found in the seal of the Bia.

Early era amulets will have Channaroeng paste from the stingless bee or the giant termite nests around the temple. Mid era ramulets have Channaroeng paste with Ya Ruea, a herbal paste often used by fishermen and sailors to seal their wooden boats against leakage with. The third and later era, is seen to be made from Ya Ruea mixed with Pong Ittijae Yantra powders.

Devotees would often take the Bia Gae of Luang Phu Kam to be specially framed at an artisan, and framed with gold, silver or other brazen metal type frames. The Artisans would always stamp the enclosure of the Bia Gae frame with the Thai letters ‘Hor Mor Ngor’ (หมง), or sometimes the word ‘Kam’ (คำ), or ‘Heng’ (เฮง). In the case of exhibits which have the word ‘Heng’ stamped on the frame, this was the name of the Artisan. In the case of exhibits that have the letters ‘Hor Mor Ngor’ (หมง), this was and still is the code stamp of the firm of the Hor Mor Ngor Artisans, who to this day still use the same Hor Mor Ngor stamp to encase amulets with custom metal frames.

Wat Sattahip is the temple that Luang Por Ee built with his own hands in the year 2442 BE, which is now well over a Century ago, and Luang Por Ee was the temple’s first Abbot when it was built. Luang Por Ee was well-known for his abilities in Samatha meditation and Vipassana mindfulness practices. He could enter, continue to remain in, and leave the Kasina and Jhanic mind states at will, as well as change his inner state of consciousness, to dwell in whichever state was appropriate for the practice.

He stood out for his skill, which was noticeably superior to that of his Sangha peers, and for his impeccable behavior. This was due to his ability to elevate his mind above the vedhana (emotions) and not allow them to flood his mind with anger, sadness, stress, suspicions, and all the other manifestations of emotional and mental impediments and hindrances that arise within the psyche of an ordinary unpracticed human being. He was able to extinguish negative emotions or afflictive emotions due to cold, heat, hunger, thirst, aches and pains, and self-created mental worries. Luang Por Ee is known to have never complained about anything or expressed dissatisfaction with anything. Even while he was sick, he never complained, moaned, or groaned, or even told anybody. He would always remain in the same peaceful, state of balance. Luang Por Ee acknowledged the value of a good education and built the Rong Rian Ban Na Sattaheeb public school for the citizens of Sattaheeb.

Throughout his vocation, Luang Por Ee produced numerous amulets and occult talismanic charms, including his legendary Palad Khik, which is considered co-leader of the status of top Palad Khik of all time, along with the Palad Khik of Luang Por Hluea. His Takrut, along with his Suea Yant (Yantra Shirts), Rian Kanajarn Monk Coins, Pra Pid Ta, ‘Pra Sam’ (Pra Tri Gaay), and ‘Pra Prohm See Hnaa’, are among the rarest and most pursued talismans (4 Buddhas in one votive tablet).

Lucky Goat Pae Maha Lap Luang Por Am

When speaking of the Pae Maha Lap lucky goat amulet, there is one name which stands above all others, and that is the name of Luang Por Am, of Wat Nong Grabork, in Ban Kaay Rayong. Luang Por Am was, along with Masters like Luang Por Horm of Wat Sak Hmak, Luang Por Rerm of Wat Juk Gacher, and Luang Por Chaem, considered among the top Masters of the Province, long before even the Great Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai acheived his fame. Luang Por Am was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of the Great Luang Por Lat (Wat Nong Grabork), who is famed in his own right for his powerful Pae Maha Lap Hand Carved Goat Amuletsม which he of course mastered under the tutelage of Luang Por Am.

The male Goat is known for the fact that it is able to keep a whole herd of dozens of females under his ownership, through merciful and protective influence. It is thus believed that who wears the Pae Maha Lap Khao Kwai Gae Sacred buffalo horn Goat amulets of Luang Por Am, will be an owner and controller of great possessions and wealth, with grand entourage.

Luang Por Am

Luang Por Am, or ‘Pra Kroo Taep Sittaa, was one of the Great Masters of the Central-Eastern Provinces during His Era, and the ex abbot of Wat Nong Grabork from 2431 – 2490 BE. He was rrespected and revered all around the Province, and had Great fame around the Nation for his Powerful Wicha. During his lifetime he became known as the top Master for carved Lucky Goat amulets. What is less known, and is of immense interest to investigate the lineage Wicha of the Pae Maha Lap, is the fact that Luang Por Am himself received this Wicha from Luang Por Dtaeng of Wat Ang Sila.

Luang Por Am was abbot of Wat Nong Grabork between the years 2431 to 2490 BE, being a Gaeji Ajarn of around 150 years ago, and was the Kroo Ba Ajarn teacher of many other great names of the time, such as Luang Por Rerm of Wat Juk Gacher, and Luang Por Lat of Wat Nong Grabork (his successor and apprentice in magick). The Pae Maha Lap Nuea Khao Kwai Gae of Luang Por Am, is believed to possess the power to absorb Black Magick and protect the wearer/devotee from being affected.

It can be said that the Pae Maha Lap of Luang Por Am, Luang Por Lat, and now Pra Atigarn Surasit Akkawaro, the current abbot (written 2562 BE), are considered the ‘cream of the crop’, by serious devotees of the Pae Maha Lap, along with those other Great Chonburi Masters whose names carry fame for this Wicha such as Luang Phu Tim, uang Por Sakorn, Luang Phu Sin.

The Pae Maha Lap of Luang Por Am, was almost always made by carving a goat from ‘Khao Kwai Fa Pha Dtaay’, which is the horn of a buffalo which died struck by lightning in a field. It is an ancient magical belief that the horn of a lightning-struck bull or buffalo has the power of angelic beings in it, for indeed, the angelic beings of the elemental realms who control the weather, are who control these divine forces of Nature.

After the carving of the shape of the goat, Luang Por Am would then empower the Goats with incantations, and invocations of elemental powers and angelic beings, with Buddhist Blessings on top. Sometimes he would immerse them in aromatic sacred oils to consecrate them, mixed with herbal oils made from herbs and vines and flowers of the forest, with magical, healing, protective, and attraction powers. He would rebless them again and again until he felt the amulets were completely stuffed as full with magic as possible, and unable to insert any more. The magic within the amulets was hence always filled to the brim before distribution.
