The rear face shows the presence of all the classic features and muan sarn ingredients of a true Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm of Somdej Dto, with Kraap Kru on the front face revealing it to have been placed within the larger Chedi Stupa of the 2500 BE Opening. The Kru Gao (Chedi Yai) amulets are more highly preferred than the Kru Hmai (small Chedis) amulets, which were found later within the nine smaller Chedi Stupas surrounding the main central Stupa.

Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm is one of the classic Pra Somdej amulets available and is along with Pra Somdej Wat Gaes Chaiyo perhaps the next in line to the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang amulet as far as popularity, beauty, sacredness of Puttapisek ceremony and price range.

 

 

Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm Kru Pra Chedi Yai (Large Chedi Kru amulets)
The Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm amulets classified as a Kru Pra Chedi Yai, have 9 different Pim Song, and were made in the period between 2411 and 2413 BE. Not all of the Pra Somdej Bang Khun Prohm were placed in the Kru, it took many years to create and press them and many would be in a receptacle in the Kuti and would be handed out by him during the time he created and empowered them.

 

This explains the absence of Kraap Kru in some exhibits, as well as being purely logical and the most probable chain of events to have occurred. The Thaan Saem is one of the 5 Pim Song of Pra Somdej, which exist in both the Kru Wat Rakang and Kru Bang Khun Prohm amulets. Pra Somdej Wat Rakang have Five major category of Pim Song, whereas the Pra Somdej has four more Pim Song, making it nine major Pim in all.

 

 

These 9 Pim are; Pim Yai, Pim Sangkati, Pim Song Chedi, Pim Prok Po, Pim Gaes Bua Dtum, Pim Thaan Koo, Pim Sen Dai, Pim Ok Krut.

History records that, in the year of the Dragon 2411 BE, Samian Tra Duang Tongoses made restoration work Wat Bang Khun Prohm Nai (Wat Mai Amataros), and renewed the temple along with the building of a new Chedi Stupa, in order to place Pra Somdej amulets, which Samian Tra Duang invited Jao Prakhun Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Toh) Prohmrangsri, of Wat Rakang Kositaram to place there, as well as to empower. The amulets were made in the Pra Somdej Traditional formula of 84,000 pieces (same as the number of suttas of the Pra Tammakhant).

 

After Somdej Dto had blessed and empowered them, Samian Tra Duang was allowed to place then in the Kru hiding place within the Chedi Stupa behind the Upopsadha shrine room. During the time from then, the Chedi was sometimes accessed and amulets were removed from time to time, and even some thieves dug holes and stole some.

 

This became so bothersome that the Kru had to be broken open officially on 24th November in 2500 BE.

 

The opening took all day, until at approximately 8 pm, the very last Pra Somdej amulets were removed. Many of them were very thickly coated with ‘Kraap Kru’ (residues and growths). The amulets were allowed to be rented out by devotees, until the year 2509. The total amount of money raised from the rental of these amulets amounted to about 4 Million Thai Baht.

 

This money was used to construct the new Uposadha shrineroom, and the renovate and restore the old Chedi Stupa, as well as making a bronze statue of Tan Jao Prakhun Somdej Toh, which was completed and celebrated in 2509 at the same time as celebrating the building of the Putta Sima (temple walls), and the burial of the ‘Look Nimit’ (all Uposadha shrine rooms must have a Look Nimit ball buried under it).

The depletion of this series led to the creation of yet another immortal legend of the Pra Somdej Niche in 2509, namely the Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm 09 Edition, which is in itself one of the most highly collected amulets of serious collectors and devotees, and also carry relatively elevated prices.

This Classic edition of Somdej Bang Khun Prohm, are considered to have extremely powerful Buddha magic in them due to the richness of sacred powders and powerful blessings contained within from great master Somdej Dto.

The Pra Pid Ta Wat of Sapan Sung Temple, is a Dtamra (legendary series) that spans over various generations of abbots, all of whom have managed to gain equal fame and high repute for their Pra Pid Ta amulets, all of which preserve the style and methods of the original Wicha made so famous by Luang Phu Iam.

The Pra Pid Ta old amulets of Wat Sapan Sung is known in two major Pim (models), namely the Pim Chalud (Blind Man model), and the Pim Dtapap (Terrapin model). Mostly the amulets would be covered in Lacquer, with some very few exhibits in pure powders. Others can be found to have had the lacquer cleaned off them by devotees in later years. It is known that Luang Phu Glin, one of the Great Masters of the Wicha Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung, was allergic to Lacquer, and so his versions never had lacqer on them and were pure powders (except when a devotee applied the lacquer himself after receiving the amulet). Luang Por Tong Sukh and Luang Phu Iam however, would more often than not dip the Pra Pid Ta in lacquer as a protective layer.

All masters have followed the same design and method of lacquering, resulting in the amulets of each master being very similar in design, and mostly can only be differentiated by estimation of the age of the lacquer and Muan Sarn Sacred Powders in order to determine which Generation of Master the amulet came from.

Luang Por Tong Sukh Intasaro (Pra Kroo Nantagij Sope), was the abbot of Wat Sapan Sung during the years 2491 BE to 2525 BE, after Luang Phu Glin, and Luang Phu Iam. Much like his predecessors, he continued to preserve and nurture the Wicha Pra Pid Ta already made famous from this Temple by the great Luang Phu Iam, and Luang Phu Glin, and produced his own editions, using the Wicha bestowed upon him from his Kroo Ba Ajarn before him.

Luang Por Tong Sukh was born on the 11th March 2446 BE in the village of Nong Phai Hlueang in Petchburi and was the son of Mr. Kong and Mrs. Pae, and was the youngest of 5 sibliings. At age 11, he went to be educated at the temple of Wat Nong Wa in Petchburi, with Pra Ajarn Joy, Ajarn Say, and Ajarn Nim. When he reached age 13, he left with his uncle to help work to assist his family, and moved to work in Rachaburi.

Below; Luang Por Tong Sukh of Wat Sapan Sung

Luang Por Tong Sukh of Wat Sapan Sung

At age 20, he was called into the military service with the Infantry in Petchburi. After he finished his military service, he applied for a job in the Police force, and was employed as a Police Lieutenant in Petchburi for two years. After this, he was sent to work in the Southern Province of Naratiwat, and later to other Porvinces like Satun, Ban Pong, Rachaburi, Chayapum and Surin. He was eventually sent back to work in Petchburi, and after one single year working there, he began to develop immense boredom with the ways of the world, and left the Police force.

He ordained into the Sangha in the year 2470 at Wat Na Prohm in Petchburi. Pra Kroo Pit (Abbot) was his Upachaya Ordaining Officer, and Pra Ajarn Phong was his Gammawajajarn Prompt, and Pra Ajarn Up was his Anusawanajarn Witness. He stayed at Wat Nong Wa for one year, and then Pra Ajarn Peng of Wat Sapan Sung who passed by traveling on Tudong, invited him to join him to go stay at Wat Ta Gwian in Pak Kred in Nontaburi. Luang Por Tong Sukh stayed here for three years and then moved on to go study Pariyatti Dhamma at Wat Sapan Sung in the year 2474 BE.

At that time Pra Kroo Sopana Sasanagij (Luang Phu Glin) was the abbot, and his friend Ajarn Peng was the Pariyatti Dhamma teacher. In the year 2476 BE, Luang Phu Sukh gained his Doctorate in Dhamma studies, and Luang Phu Glin gave him the job of teaching Pariyatti Dhamma instead of Luang Por Peng.

Luang Por Tong Sukh then at this time began to study and practice the Dtamra Saiyawaet Grimoire of Buddha Magic and Occult Sorcery, and the various Kata which were pertinent to the Wicha of the Temple and Masters of Wat Sapan Sung, such as the Inscriptions for Takrut, the methods of making Pong Lob Yantra Powders, the Wicha of making Pra Pid Ta amulets, and Holy Water. He received all of these Wicha and Ritual methods from Luang Phu Glin, then the Abbot and Guardian Sentinel of the Wicha, passed down from Luang Phu Iam.

In the year 2482 BE, Luang Phu Glin passed away, and Luang Por Tong Sukh was given the emergency status of temporary Abbot until 2490 BE, after which he was officially instated by the Sangha Comittee as Abbot with full documentation and Royal decree. He performed his duties and continued the work of Luang Phu Iam and Luang Phu Glin, and was now the new Master and Guardian of the Wicha Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung, as the third important master of the lineage Wicha. In the year 2508 he was awarded status of Upachaya.

Luang Por Tong Sukh administrated the temple with great prowess, and brought many improvements to the enclave, and saw to the needs of the devotees. His kindness and strength of practice was legendary with the local devotees, for his strict adherence to the Dhamma Vinaya Buddhist Canon, and maintaining his purity as a Buddhist Monk.

His guidance to the younger Samanera novice monks was excellent, which led to the temple having only well practiced Monks residing, which brought even more reverence from the local community of devotees, for the temple was seen as a true place of practice, with only pure monks residing.

 

Luang Por Tong Sukh guided the fold and took care of the temple and its Bhikkhus with complete self renunciation for many years, serving the congregation, until he passed away on the 7th April 2525 BE at 8:00 am, at the age of 79 Years Old.

Luang Por Tong Sukh made the Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung throughout his trajectory, for devotees would come in throngs every day to seek out amulets, and so one can find Pra Pid Ta of this master coming from a range of time periods, ranging between about 2490 BE, up to his passing in 2525 BE, spanning a period of over 35 Years of amulet making.

 

His early era amulets will hence have similar appearance in ageing characteristics as those amulets from the latter Era of his Mentor Luang Phu Glin. It is hence a point of study to recognise the ageing characteristics of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders and Lacquers of the Pra Pid Ta Wat sapan Sung amulets, to separate a late Era Luang Phu Iam amulet from an early Era Luang Phu Glin, and a late Era Luang Phu Glin amulet from an early Era Luang Por Tong Sukh. To master this aspect of amulet study of the Pra Pid Ta Wat sapan Sung, is to Master the Dtamra of amulets of three Generations of Masters in its entirety.

 

Luang Por Tong Sukh’s amulets are manyfold, ranging from his famous Pra Pid Ta, to Rian Kanajarn Monk Coins, and many talismanic charms such as Takrut, Look Om, and Pha Yant. Amongst his most preferred amulets are of course the Pra Pid Ta, and the Roop Lor Luang Phu Iam, and Roop Lor Luang Phu Glin Loi Ongk Statuettes (released in 2500 BE). Other preferred amulets are the Rian Sema Block Ueam, the Rian Luang Phu Glin, and Rian Khaw Hlam Dtad, as well as various other Rian Sema type coins. Some of his amulets can fetch thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars for rare preferred block presses.

 

The Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Tong Sukh is a very poreferred and popular amulet, for its undisputed powers, which have been repeatedly confirmed over the years with so many stories in the newspapers about miraculous events happening to devotees who wore the Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung of Luang Por Tong Sukh. Luang Por Tong Sukh made the Pra Pid Ta exactly as passed down to him by Luang Phu Glin and his predecessor Luang Phu Iam.

Below; Luang Phu Glin, of Wat Sapan Sung

 

It is said that the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Tong Sukh is just as powerful and can be used instead of Pra Pid Ta by Luang Phu Glin or Luang Phu Iam, and the amulets of all three Masters are collected with equal fervency and preference by devotees, the only difference between the amulets of these three masters being the age and the price. Luang Por Tong Sukh would use old powders which were passed down from Luang Phu Gling, which Luang Phu Glin in turn had received from Luang Phu Iam.

It is said that Luang Por Tong Sukh made amulets from about the year 2490 BE onwards. Both the Pim Chalud and the Pim Tapap models are very highly revered and sought after, with his most preferred and rarest models being the Pim Sader Jun, and the Pim Sorng Sader (2 belly buttons), and the Pim Tapap (Terrapin Model).

 

The Pim Sader Jun is very rare, made in the year 2495 BE, and fetches very high prices on the marketplace, starting at about 1000$ and upwards. However, it is a fallicy that the Pim Sader Jun was only pressed in 2495 BE, as Luang Por Tong Sukh kept pressing the Sader Jun amulets with the very same block press until it broke sometime between the years 2510 BE and 2520 BE. The Pim sader Jun and Pim Sorng Sader remain his rarest and most highly valued models, fetching extremely high prices with collectors.

 

The Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung are highly renowned for their powers of Maha Pokasap Metta Maha Niyom Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri, to bring great wealth and protection to the wearer.

Pra Gleep Bua Amulet with Yant Trinisinghae Luang Phu To Wat Pradoo Chimplee

The Pra Pratan Gleep Bua Hlang Yant Trinisinghae Muan Sarn Sacred Powders amulet, was released after Buddha Abhiseka Blessing Ceremony at Wat Pradoo Chimplee in the year 2521 BE, blessed by the Great Luang Phu To 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 the whole Trimester. This model is rare for being in the much rarer Pong Gesorn Gae ANam Man oily pollens sacred clay.

The amulet was released in two ‘Pim’ (versions); Pim Yai (large, 22,875 amulets made), and Pim Lek (small, 20,805 amulets made). 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 middle and 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 Sacred Yant Trinisinghae is Embossed on the rear face of the Amulet for Metta Mahaniyom and Maha Lap Blessings.

The amulet is a Pim Yai large version measuring 3.5 x 2.5 Cm,, and is in pristine condition. The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders are made from Puttakun Yantra Powders of Luang Phu To, with Gesorn Pollens and Incenses. The powerful magic and spellcasting 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. The Yant Trinisinghae was often inscribed on Yantra foils for devotees who would bring a foil with them and Luang Phu would inscribe it. The devotees would then take the foil home for Bucha, or roll it into a Takrut to wear as an amulet.

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. Luang Phu To Wat Pradoo Chimplee performing Nang Prok Meditation for Empowerment of Amulets

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. 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.

The Pra Pratan Gleep Bua Pim Yai and Pim Lek amulets are very popular with Devotees, for they are made from precisely the same Muan Sarn Sacred Powders as was used for the Pra Pid Ta Jumbo 2 Traimas Masterclass edition, which can cost up to even 40 times the price of a Pra Pratan Gleep Bua. It is hence obvious why this amulet is such a popular amulet with the devotee of Luang Phu This Votive Tablet is an Absolute Rarity and Eternal Classic, and extremely sought after spiritual item.The perfect choice for aesthetic beauty, spiritual value, and magic power, and top choice for the Serious Collector.

This beautiful amulet is most definitely a very fine acquisition, as a Sacred Votive Tablet of Pra Niyom Preferred Classic Category, that has been well looked after and maintained in its original state, and is a very well-kept amulet, that is worthy of competition entry for its clear features.

Luang Phu To of Wat Pradoo Chimplee was one of the greatest Masters of the Last Century, and a Highly revered Monk around the whole Kingdom of Thailand. he was Respected and revered by His Majesty Our great King, who was a close friend and companion.

During the Indochina War, the Thai Military was ordered into battle, and a great ceremony to make Pha Prajiad Sipsee Pan Tong of Luang Por Chaeng, and Yantra Shirts of Luang Por Jad to protect them in the War, was held with a great blessing ritual, empowered by four of thee great monks, Luang Por Jong, Luang Por Chaeng, Luang Por Jad, and Luang Por Chuan.

The famous Pha Yant Prajiad were given to some soldiers to test with three point blank range shots, all of which failed. these Yantra cloths of Luang Por Chaeng, and the Yantra Shirts of Luang Por jad (Wat Bang Grabao) were worn into battle, and became the famous story of the French Military seeing Thai soldiers shot with bullets, who were knocked to the ground by the bullets, and immediately stood up again and went back into battle as if nothing had hit them. The French Military then called the Thai Military ‘Taharn Phi’ (Ghost Soldiers).

Luang Por Chaeng held the Wicha of a number of Kroo Ba Ajarn, who bestowed him with their lineage secrets, including the Great Luang Por Parn of Wat bang Hia (Wat Klong Dan), ;ph Khai of Wat Cherng Lane, Luang Phu Chay of Wat Panan Cherng,, Pra Kanajarn Say (Luang Por Say), Luang Phu Sukh, of Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao, Luang Por Parn of Wat Bang Nom Kho, and the Great Luang Por Jong of Wat Na Tang Nork.

As Luang Por Chaeng was alive and abbot of Wat Bang Pang, he would receive many devotees each day with numerous requests, none of whom he would refuse. Some would come for Blessings, some for Amulets, and others to heal their Illnesses, and some devotees who had heard of his Magical Prowess, came to beseech the secrets of his Wicha, to become Sorcerors themselves, and help those in their hometowns.

Luang Por Chaeng would bless, distribute amulets, and heal his devotees without exception. As to those devotees who beseeched apprenticeship to learn to cast spells with Kata Akom Incantations, Luang Por Chaeng would always first make the Looksit learn to develop their meditative skill, and to allow them to develop moral fibre and the five precepts. Only then, when they had risen above the base temptations, would he allow them the secrets of the Incantations, their sequences and methods. He would teach his students how to cure ailments and banish curses, and expunge ghosts and spirits from possessed souls.

 


Luang Por Chaeng had a great respect for Luang Por Parn of Wat Bang Nom Kho, and had received a lot of influence from him in the art of amulet making. So when he would make his amulets, he would often make models which resembled and paid reverence to the famous Pra Pim Pra Putta Jao Pratap Sadtw Buddha riding Animals amulets. He made original designs which resembled those of Wat Bang Nom Kho, with differences in design to distinguish them. This caused his amulets to become very popular, as this was the preferred type of amulet at the time in Central Thailand.

Luang Por Chaeng made a large number of different amulets, ranging from the Buddha riding animals, and other sacred powder amulets in many forms, in small (Pim Lek), medium (Pim Klang) and large (Pim Yai), Monk Coins, the world famous Pha Yant Tong Yantra Flags, Sai Sek blessed sandgrains, the highly preferred and now rare Pra Kring, and Pra Chaiyawat Loi Ongk Statuettes, Pra Prajam Wan (Birthday Buddha amulets), Nang Kwak beckoning lady, Pra Putta Kwak beckoning Buddha, Pra Sam Lia, (triangular amulet), and of course, his famous and extremely popular Pra Sivali metallic Loi Ongk Statuette amulets, which were made in ancient casting methods, in various forms and sizes, for Bucha on the altar as well as for wear as amulets.

His sacred powder amulets were made from a number of different Muan Sarn substance clays, including Puttakun (Yantra Powders), Nuea Din (Earthen Clay), and Pong Nam Man (Oily Herbal Powders). The amulet appreciation society and the aficionados tend to prefer the Pong Nam Man Oily powder models above the other Muan Sarn Sacred Powders, but there is not a very large difference in their price compared to the difference in their rarity.

In the year 2484 BE, Many devotees gathered to officially ask Luang Por Chaeng to make some powerful amulets to protect them during the War. So Luang Por Por Chaeng made a very large release of amulets of different types, with extreme power and effort after many years of preparation.

He empowered them for Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad and Maha Ud to protect the Thai Buddhist people, in that time of Wars around South East Asia and the whole World. None of the multitudes of amulets blessed in the ceremony were rented out for money, instead, all were handed out for free to the devotees at the ceremony.

The Buddha riding animal amulets of Luang Por Chaeng are used as a second choice for those who do not possess the funds to obtain a Luang Por Parn Wat Bang Nom Kho model, and are said to be equally powerful protective amulets.

Luang Por Chaeng did not bake the clay in his edition, preferring to make them from an admixture which contained Poon Plueak Hoi (ground seashell), which results in a smoother and lighter colour and texture than Luang Por Parn’s clay models. Otherwise, his powder amulets contain the same 5 Sacred Yantra Powders Pong Bpathamang, Pong Puttakun, Pong Ittijae (sometimes called ‘Ittajae’), Pong Trinisinghae, and Pong Maharach. Luang Por Chaeng’s formula also included Gesorn flower pollens, Sai Sek enchanted sand, Khaw Suk cooked rice (from monks almsbowls)

Luang Por Chaeng passed away peacefully on 26th July 2500 BE at the age of 72 years old, after 52 years in the ordained Sangha. His body was cremated in the year 2501 BE after being moved to Wat Makut Kasatriyaram. A series of ‘Rian Khaw Hlaam’ four sided Monk coins with the image of Luang Por Chaeng were handed out to the devotees during the cremation ceremony as a sacred memento of Luang Por Chaeng.

His amulets have become a classic preferred sacred religious artifact of the pre 2500 BE Era, and a guaranteed auspicious Buddhist Votive Tablet that can be treasured and revered for generations to come. A truly sacred ancient amulet from one of the most powerful masters of the World War II Era.

Luang Por Chaeng was an important monk present called for the empowerment of amulets in many great ceremonies, particularly notable the Wat Rachabopit Indojin Ceremony of 2481 BE, considered to be the largest Blessing Ceremony of all History., the 25 Centuries of Buddhism Ceremony of 2500 BE (second of three largest ceremonies in History) and his presence was beseeched to assist in empowering the world famous historical edition of Pra Kring Wat Sutat.


Pra Pruhnang Klueab - Luang Por An of Wat Prayat

Todays post brings you a look at a classic amulet from the Great Luang Por An, of Wat Prayat, with Muan Sarn Sacred Powders from the Kroo Ba Ajarn of Luang Por An, Luang Por Glan, preceding Abbot of Wat Prayat. 

The Pra Pruhnang Amulet is a Historic Buddha Image of immensely tasteful artistic design, and made using sacred clay with added powders of Luang Por Glan, and a host of other ancient amulets from the Ayuttaya period broken down into the powders. Luang Por An was the Looksit Aek first Initiate of Luang Por An inherited the Sorcery Wicha of Luang Por Glan (Wat Prayat), and his special Muan Sarn Sacred Powders, and who blessed these amulets with the invocations of his Lineage Master Luang Por Glan.

Luang Por An was one of the Great Gaeji Ajarn Masters of His Era, considered one of the Great Ayuttaya Master Monks, whose amulets are extremely favoured throughout all circles of collectors. The Pra Pruhnang Klueab, along with the Pra Khun Phaen Klueab glazed baked Sacred Clay amulets are amongst his most famous and preferred amulets of the pantheon. Most devotees of Wat Prayat will collect and Bucha amulets from both Luang Por An, and his Kroo Ba Ajarn Luang Por Glan (hard to find), for the magic of both Masters is seen to be second to none for Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Metta Maha Niyom power.

Luang Por Glan was the abbot of Wat Prayat in Ayuttaya, and the Kroo Ba Ajarn of the Great Luang Por An, who succeeded Luang Por Glan as abbot of Wat Prayat after his passing. In turn, Luang Por An was also a Great Master of Olden Days, whose amulets were immensely famous during the Wartime Era, for their Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad power. Luang Por An inherited and learned most of his Wicha from Luang Por Glan, who was one of the top ten Masters with the most powerful psychic powers of his Era.

The Pra Pruhnang, which features an image of the Buddha in Mara Vichai (subduing Mara), is seated touching the earth, calling the Dharani Earth Goddess as his Witness. The two Savaka Pra Mokkhallana and Pra Saributra are standing to either side of the Buddha, who is surrounded by a decorative Arch.

The Pra Pruhnang Amulet is an ancient Amulet of the Ayuttaya Kingdom which is a Historical Artifact, and a Highly revered Votive Tablet. The original Pra Pruhnang is found at Wat Putai Sawan and was discovered hidden at other Temples in the Ayuttaya Region too.

It is a famous fact that both the Great Khun Pantagij Rachadech (creator of the Jatukam Ramathep Amulet) and his Unkillable Enemy the Bandit ‘Suea Fai’, were both known to highly rever the Pra Pruhang amulet, and wore more than one of them on the same neck chain around their necks.

Even after retiring from hunting Bandits, Khun Pan still wore the amulets for protection until his old age. The Pra Pruhnang is one of the most famous amulets for its power of Kong Grapan Chadtri and Klaew Klaad protective magic, and also for its healing powers.

The Pra Pruhnang is one of the more highly prized amulets of collectors and devotees of Luang Por An, and of Thai Buddhist People everywhere, for its beauty, and the presence of three Arahants, in one amulet. The muan sarn clay was made from an admixture of various ancient amulets of the Ayuttaya Era, such as Pra Nai Putsa, Pra Wat Tagrai, Pra Kring Klong Takian, Pra Kone Samor, Pra Luang Por Dto Wat Bang Grating, Pra Luang Por Parn, and amulets from Wat Koo Salort, as well as a large number of other Ancient Pra Kru hiding place amulets from around the Ayuttaya province.

Luang Por An was born in the year 2435 BE, and ordained into the Sangha at Wat Prayatigaram on the 26th May 2456 BE, with the Great Luang Por Glan Tammachoti as his Ordaining Upachaya,Luang Por Chaay (Wat Dtong Pbu) as his Gammawajajarn prompting officer. The name of his Anusawanajarn witness is no longer recorded, but most devotees assume it to be Pra Ajarn Rod Widtuyo of Wat Ayotaya (also called Wat Gasankh), or a few historians believe his Anusawanajarn witness to have been Luang Por Lueang, of Wat Pradoo Song Tam.

The Great Luang Por An passed away in 2512 BE as he was on travels visiting Wat Pra Singh in Chiang Mai, for a Buddha Abhiseka Blessing. His body was kept for devotees to worship at Wat Prayat for 25 years before he was cremated in the year 2536 BE.

Pra Pid Ta Pim Pung Bpong potbellied Nirodha Buddha amulet of the Legendary Luang Phu Sukh, of Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao, in Nuea Pong Kluk Rak.

The Pra Pid Ta Pim Pung Bpong was made by hand pressing by Luang Phu Sukh in the years 2460 BE to 2463 BE, to be handed out in the Funeral Ceremony of Luang Phu Sukh’s Mother. The artisan’s design shows itself to be the work of a local artisan, for its basic appearance. The Buddha has a pot belly and two hands raised to cover the face. The amulet is made from Nuea Pong Kluk Rak Muan Sarn Sacred Powders mixed with herbal lacquer. This edition has identical Muan Sarn clay to the ‘Jaek Mae Krua’ edition. The examination of the Pra Pid Ta Pung Bpong is not performed by looking at the Pim Song (design) because the hand made nature means that each amulet is slightly different in appearance, so the standard method of confirming its origins, is to look at the Muan Sarn Clay, and to know its appearance and textures

The amulets of this, perhaps the greatest of all Master Monks with Wicha Akom, are amongst the most sought after and valued in the world of Thai Buddhist Amulets. Be it his Rian Roop Muean, Somdej Rasamee and Somdej Prapa Mondon, or his Pra Pid Ta, Prok Bai Makham, Takrut, Prakam Rosaries, and other Talismanic Charms, the spiritual value and magical power is equally regarded as being of the most powerful and truly magical amulets one could afford.

Luang Phu Sukh is one of the greatest Magic Monks of all Thai History, for which reason this is an amulet more to keep and Bucha than anything else, although it is also a good investment as the price will become ever more expensive. This is already an extremely rare and hard to find amulet. A most sacred and desirable addition to anyones collection indeed. Few amulets at this price can compare considering the sacredness, the maker and the beauty and age of this amazing amulet.

Luang Phu Sukh, who was so famous for his Magical Powers and Miraculous Feats, which included having been seen to blow into Tamarind tree leaves and transform them into Bees, or turn Banana Flowers into live Rabbits, fly through the sky, and breathe underwater. Luang Phu Sukh was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of his Lordly Highness, Admiral Grom Luang Chumporn, who was an apprentice to Luang Phu Sukh in Sorcery, and one of his greatest Devotees.

Luang Phu Sukh had many Wicha such as the Wicha Suea Saming, able to transform into a Tiger, and the Wicha Look Pern Sakot, which was to perform incantations into a bullet of a single shot firing gun, and the bullet would always find its mark on target, without fail. One could say that Luang Phu Suk is one of the greatest masters of the History of Thai Guru Monks, and is one of the top Ten Legendary Monks of all time.

There are so any legends told about his miraculous powers and feats. His Mastery of Traditional healing and herbal Medicine has led his written works on the subject to become the greatest Thai Occult herbalism Recipe Grimoire in all existence. He was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of a great number of the most powerful Master Monks of the last Century, and his powerful Magic remains second to no other Guru Monk in Thai History.

Luang Phu Sukh Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao

It is said that Luang Phu Sukh became the Kroo Ba Ajarn of Grom Luang Chumporn, a Royal Courtier, an Admiral, and a Great Sorceror of his time. This happened as Grom Luang Chumporn’s navy boat had broken and he was forced to park the bloat close to Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao. Grom Luang went to make reverence to Luang Phu Sukh, by pretending that he was just a simple commoner, and not a member of the Lordly Family, but Luang Phu Sukh addressed him by his name, surprising Grom Luang Chumporn.

Grom Luang went to make reverence to Luang Phu Sukh, by pretending that he was just a simple commoner, and not a member of the Lordly Family, but Luang Phu Sukh addressed him by his name, surprising Grom Luang Chumporn. Grom Luang Chumporn asked Luang Phu Sukh how he knew who he was?

Luang Phu Sukh told him that he saw his Aura approaching, and that it was brighter than that of the normal commoners, and that it told him already who he was. Grom Luang Chumporn asked to learn Wicha with Luang Phu Sukh, and was bestowed with many Magical Wicha, such as the ability to remain under the water for hours and breathe as if he was on land.

Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii Pra Ajarn Hnoo

Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi (Pra Pid Ta Graduk Phii) – Pra Ajarn Hnoo, Wat Po Ta Dtian (Wat Chetupon)

The legendary Pra Pong Athi (Graduk Phii) amulet of Pra Ajarn Hnoo Wat Po Ta Dtian became famous during the second world wartime as a powerful protector against deadly dangers, and has remained famous to this day. It was during the second world war and Indo-Chiina wartime era that many powerful sorceror monks in Thailand began to come out and create amulets to distribute to soldiers and the common folk, to protect them against the deadly dangers of wartime. In that time, the Japanese were occupying Thailand as ‘forced allies’, and so Thailand was being bombed by the allied nations, who were attacking the Japanese military installations. Very often bombs would miss the Japanese target, and hit a local village instead,n and innocent Thai people were killed. And so it was in this era than we came to see amulets like the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii come into existence.

Pra Ajarn Hnoo of Wat Po Ta Dtian (Wat Chetupon)

Pra Ajarn Hnoo was a Master Gaeji Ajarn who was known for his intensive practice and mastery of Vipassana Kammathana, and Khmer Sorcery. he would not socialise with other monks, and only his most fearless and devote initiates would dare to enter his Kuti Hut, for it was known that he would ‘Liang Phii’ (take care of Ghosts in his hut).  In the year 2485 BE, Pra Ajarn Hnoo, of Wat Po Ta Dtian (or, ‘Wat Pra Chetupon Wimon Mangkalaram’), created a powerful amulet, in secret, and with his own hands, to help people survive the war and prosper in life. This amulet was to become a legend that has maintained its status into the modern era, and is even the subject of a documentary.

Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi (Pong Graduk Phii) - Pra Ajarn Hnoo (Wat Po)

Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi (Pong Graduk Phii) – Pra Ajarn Hnoo (Wat Po)


This amulet is of course the Pra Pid Ta Nuea Pong Athi (or better known as ‘Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii’ amulet. Pra Ajarn Hnoo was a Gaeji Ajarn of Khmer Origins, who possessed powerful Necromantic Wicha. He was not very old at the time, but already had a large following of respectful Devotees, who revered him for his powerful Magic. Pra Ajarn Hnoo liked to grow magical herbs around his Kuti Hut at the temple to use for making amulets and potions, holy water and bestowing blessings. Pra Ajarn Hnoo was often visited by devotees to perform spiritual healings with his holy water and herbal potions, and people would ask him for amulets and blessings. Pra Ajarn Hnoo hence began making amulets, in a very unusual manner compared to the usual Thai Buddhist Traditional methods, bringing in his Khmer Sorcery to add to the magical power of the amulet. He used ashes from the bones of cremated corpses, mixed with Puttakun Powders and Ittijae Powders, and Pong Wan Aathan (a mixture of powdered magical herbs and pollens)

The use of the ashes of cremated bones in the amulets came from Pra Ajarn Hnoo’s Khmer Necromantic Sorcery training, which holds to the premise that the ashes or bone powders, funereal earths and corpse oils of the dead, possess immensely powerful magic.

The ashes of Phii Dtaay Hoeng were used, according to the Dtamra Saiasart Khmer Grimoires of Necromantic Sorcery, which specifies that only the ashes of a Hoeng Prai Ghost can be used if the Wicha is to be powerful. A Hoeng Prai is often known as a ‘screaming ghost’ because the word means a person who died in an accident prematurely, or through unforeseen circumstances. So often this will mean a person who died screaming. Hoeng Prai spirits are in Limbo and often angry, possessing immensely powerful psychic energy. The sorceror appeases the spirit in Limbo by agreeing to a collaborative effort, where the ghost of the spirit in Limbo agrees to use its psychic powers to aid the human who owns the amulet made from its ashes, and accumulate good Karma to achieve eventual release from Limbo.

In addition, astrological Necromancy states that a Hoeng Prai Ghost must die on a Saturday and be cremated on a Tuesday, for the full formula of Lucky Fortunes Magic to come into effect.

Pra Ajarn Hnoo saw to it that he fulfilled al of these Ritual requirements, and gathered the sacred ashes until he had enough to press amulets with them, and mixed them with his other prepared Muan Sarn Sacred Powder ingredients, the Pong Puttakun, Pong Ittijae, and Wan Aathan. In addition, Pra Ajarn Hnoo then added his special ingredient, ‘Wan Pong’, or more commonly known as ‘Wan Graser’. Wan Graser is a very rare herbal plant found in the deep rainforests, and is said in Folk Legends to be a bloodsucking ‘Vampire’ plant. If an animal gets entangled in it, it is said the plant can slowly suck the blood out of the animal until it dies. This herb is a very difficult herb to cultivate, as its true habitat is in the deepest rain forests, but Pra Ajarn Hnoo had managed to cultivate some around his hut at the temple, and he used them for the making of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phi.

Pra Ajarn Hnoo made various different amulets from the Graduk Phii Hoeng Prai Ashes, including Pra Somdej, and Pra Pid Ta amulets.

In any case, despite the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders used by Pra Ajarn Hnoo to make the Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi amulets seeming very scary in their natural origins, Pra Ajarn Hnoo performed appeasement rituals and purification ceremonies over all the individual ingredients of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders before the amulets were made, and removed any black magick or negative karmic influences and energies from them beforehand, leaving only the pure unstained magical power and energy remaining, to be re-empowered with its new purpose.

The power extracted through Necromancy was then imbued within the form of the Pra Pid Ta amulets, and blessed with Buddhist Blessings of the Buddha Abhiseka (Dhamma Chakra opening of the eyes of the Buddha), empowering the extremely powerful energies within the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders to be able to bring auspicious blessings and strong protective power to keep the wearer from harm, and lead to prosperity and happiness.

It is said of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii amulet, that its protective powers are incomparable, and that the traveller who wears one will pass through all his journeys safely. Another strange aspect of the magic of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii, is that people noticed not only that one remained safe whilst traveling, but that when the traveler wearing a Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii gets off the vehicle alone, people would ask the traveler ‘and aren’t the others going? coming with you?’ (as if they couldn’t imagine the wearer being alone). This shows powerful Metta Maha Niyom Mercy Charm present within the amulet too.’

Many gamblers have found the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii to be an exellent Luckbringer to turn the tables and odds in their favour, and to ‘whisper’ in the ear of the gambler to hint as to what bets should be placed. This is known as ‘Prai Grasip’ Ghost Whisperer Magick. Pra Ajarn gave a rule to gamblers however for this amuletl That ‘If your winnings are within reason, you should not push your luck too far’.

A highly preferred amulet with those devotees who prefer less subtlety for a fast acting amulet that emanates Magickal Power without restraints, the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii is a recommendable amulet, for protection, gambling and general prosperity. The Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii is by no means an easy amulet to find these days, and is a very powerful magickal amulet of great fame and renown in Thailand.

Pra Somdej Pim Chedi Norn Wat Lakorn Tam by Luang Phu Nak of Wat Rakang, and Luang Por Supoj, of Wat Sutat

Presenting a new video with narrative by Ajarn Spencer Littlewood in our new series of videos ‘Amulet Talk’ which present you with the first of many insightful videos with narratives, to increase your awareness, and to bring interesting aspects of the topic of Thai Buddhist Amulets to you for your enjoyment. We hope this new series of videos provides you with useful study material. This episode of Amulet Talk provides a look at two Pra Somdej Pim Chedi Norn Wat Lakorn Tham, from two great master monks, which feature Buddha images seated over one of the horizontal ‘sleeping’ chedi stupas of Wat Lakorn Tam. We invite you to enjoy the HD Video and Narrative by Ajarn Spencer Littlewood, which gives a basic look at these two amulets which have a semi tenuous relationship to each other, but which are also completely distinct from each other. The Pra Somdej Chedi Norn Wat Lakorn Tham amulets of Luang Phu Nak (Wat Rakang Kositaram) and The Pra Somdej Hwaek Man Pim Chedi Norn of Luang Por Supoj (Wat Sutat).

The amulets represent the two chedi stupas at Wat Lakorn Tam temple, which were built and installed by the great Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri of Wat Rakang Kositaram. The two amulets are made by Luang Phu Nak of Wat Rakang Kositaram in the year 2495 BE (left side in white Puttakun Powders), and from Jao Khun Sri Sonti (Luang Por Supoj) of Wat Sutat, for the Indojin Indo-China Wartime Blessing ceremony, made in Nuea Wan Pasom Pong Gao. There were actually three different masters who made Pra Somdej Pim Chedi Norn, the third being Luang Phu Hin of Wat Rakang Kositaram, whose amulet is not shown in this vide, but which we will show when we obtain an example, in a future video.

Pra Somdej Pim Chedi Norn amulets by Luang Phu Nak of Wat Rakang, and Luang Por Supoj, of Wat Sutat

Both amulets from both masters (who were colleagues of each other), were made using broken pieces of ancient Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram amulets from the time of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri. The amlets are however distinct, and made at different times, with different designs, the only things in common truly being the Muan Sarn Sacred Powder content using ancient Pra Somdej Wat Rakang Kositaram, and the imagery of the sleeping Chedi Stupas of Wat Sutat. otherwise, the Buddha images and their outer arches, and daises, are distinct and apart from each other. For example, the Buddha on the Pra Somdej Chedi Norn Luang Phu Nak has a single tiered dais, whereas the Buddha on the Pra Somdej Chedi Norn Luang Por Supoj, has four tiered dais.


Pra Kru Wat Geng Jeen Amulets Ayuttaya Period

The Pra Kru Wat Geng Jeen amulet find was discovered in the year 2515 BE (approximately), in the old deserted temple of Wat Geng Jeen, in Rayong Province. Despite the fact the temple was in disrepair and without any resident monks, the history of this temple is known and documented. It is known hence, from historical reasearch, that Pra Ajarn Geng was the abbot at the time of the burial of the amulets and made them in over 70 models, all made from cast alchemical lead artifact alloy.

The Pra Kru Wat Geng Jeen amulet find occurred around the year 2515 BE, at the abandoned temple of Wat Geng Jeen, in Rayong, when a large batch of leaden amulets were discovered at the temple. The amulets were created towards the end of the Ayuttaya period, just before the Ratanakosin Era. The amulets were created by Pra Ajarn Geng, who was then the abbot of Wat Geng Jeen. The amulets were found in many different designs and images, numbering over 70 different Pim in all. Some are very common to find still, and others are much rarer.

The Kru Wat Geng Jeen amulets are known for their ‘Sanim Daeng’ reddish beige rust forming as ‘Kraap Kru on the front, and that most of them were originally coated in gold leaf in manu cases. The rear faces of the amulets have a fine layer of white cement from the Kru chamber adhering to the surface, which is one of the criteria used for recognising this particula Pra Kru, for they all have some to greater or lesser degree on the rear face.

The rarer and more highly sought after models include the Pim Mara Wichai Thaan Pha Tip, the Pim Samati Thaan Song Chan, the Pim Mokkhallana or Saributra (Pim Sawok – praying monk listening to the Buddha – can be seen as either Maugalyayana Arahant, or Sariputra Arahant), and the various models of which only few were found, and are extremely rare, such as the Pra Sangkajjai, Prajam Wan Birthday Buddhas, Pim Pra Nakprok, and the Pim Pra Pratan Thaan Tip.

Pra Ajarn Geng, the maker of the amulets back in the late Ayuttaya period, was a famous Kammathana Master Monk of his time. It is believed by experts that Pra Ajarn Geng, the maker of the Pra Kru Wat Geng Jin amulets, was the original Kroo Ba Ajarn who bestowed his magical Wicha onto some of the Great Masters of Olden days we know, such as Luang Por Dto of Wat Khao Bor Tong, Luang Por Am, of Wat Nong Grabork, the Great Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai, and Luang Por Tarb of Wat Nong Grabok Kheun Pheung.

The words ‘Pra Sawok’ means ‘Savaka’, or ‘disciple’ of the Buddha. It refers in this case to the Arahants Sariputra and Mokkhallana (also called Maugdalyāyāna, and Maha-Moggallana).The image can indeed be used for either of these Arahants, as they are both mostly featured in this sideways praying posture seated either side of the Dais the Buddha sits on under the Bodhi tree.
