An all time ‘top 5’ classic amulet of the Benjapakee Family; Pra Pong Supan Pim Hnaa Gae, in Nuea Din, with certificate of authenticity in red sacred baked clay. A Master-Class status amulet of the High End Category of Pra Kru Hiding Place Ancient Amulets. The Pra Pong Supan amulet is known for its powerful Puttakun Metta Maha Niyom Merciful Blessings and Kong Grapan Klaew Klaad Protective Power.
This amulet comes with A4 size certificate of authenticity included. The Pra Pong Supan Kru Wat Pra Sri Mahatat is the Number One Amulet of all Time for the Province of Supanburi, and an eminent member of the top 5 Benjapakee Amulets of Historical Fame and Legend. The Pra Pong Supan of the highest preference is the Pra Pong Supan Nuea Din Phao baked clay amulet, made from sacred earths of the Supanburi Province, which were mixed with sacred magical herbal powders and bound into clay with holy water.
The amulets were baked until the clay became hard but smooth and dense like marble, which is a texture that modern ‘Nak Niyom Pra’ amulet aficionados call ‘Nuea Neuk Num Seung Jad’, which means ‘soft and smooth to the touch with highly refined features’.
There were also a very small amount (one potful) of leaden Pong Supan amulets found, which were found residing on the upper section of one pot, and are known as the Pong Supan Yord Tho, and are the rarest and most sought after of all Pra Pong Supan of the Kru Wat Pra Sri Mahatat.
Below; The extremely rare leaden Pong Supan Yord Tho Amulet
We shall be covering the documentation of the Pim Yord Tho in a different article on the pages of our website.
The method of baking the amulets resulted in a very hard and resilient amulet that does not break easily, which has contributed to its preservation over many centuries. The features of the Pra bordered edges and outer frame of the various models (Pim) of the Pra Pong Supan Amulet are highly varied, and cannot be said to fit any rigid form.
Some have four or five sided edges, some are completely cut to shape, some have wider edges, and others thinner edges, some are even others uneven. Some may be tapered, whereas others have the tapered top cut off flat.
The Pim is notable for its wide nose and slanted large eyes, with the tip of the nose almost reaching the subtly smiling mouth of the Buddha image. The ears have a notably humanlike shape with anomalous forms (‘Dtamni’), that reveal the authenticity of the amulet, through the inimitable idiosyncrasies of the block press, which are ever present despite the individuality of each amulet.
One thing most Pra Pong Supan have in common is the presence of thumb or fingerprint markings. Another classic and essential feature of the Pra Pong Supan Wat Pra Sri Ratana Mahatat is that due to being buried under the earth for centuries, the Kraap Kru earth residues which are seen stuck to the surface of the amulets within the deeper recesses such as the armpits and ridges between finer detailed features.
Below; Encyclopaedic work documenting the ancient find of the Kru Wat Pra Sri Ratana Mahatat amulets
These residues are completely affixed and one and the same with the clay, and cannot be removed by simply scratching it off with a fingernail.
The Pra Pong Supan is a perfect choice of Amulet for Ladies or Children, but is also a very preferred and popular amulet for Males to wear. We have before us a Sacred Amulet whose Religious Value is of course that of a True sacred Amulet from the Master Class Category.
The Pra Pong Supan amulet is an image of the Buddha seated in the Mara Wichai posture of conquering the Demon Mara in the style of the U-Tong Periodic Era. The Buddha Image is seated on a single tiered dais, with a large head, graceful arms and protruding chest. There are various Pim (Models) of Pra Pong Supan, ranging from the Pim Hnaa Gae, Hnaa Num, Hnaa Klang, and other lesser known forms.
The Pim Hnaa Gae (old face) has one single type of face model but still has many different appearances, because of the various stages of heat during the baking process, which caused some amulets to experience shrinkage or curvature, or other anomalous reshaping during the process. Some may even have similar triangular appearance to the Pra Nang Paya, another Benjapakee amulet of Immortal fame. Various other amulets were also found including the Pra Mahesworn, Pra Ta Maprang, Pra Patum Mas, Pra Pim Lila (many versions), Pra Nakprok (small and large), and the Pra Sum Rakang.
The Pra Pong Supan and Benjapakee Class Amulets are truly world class amulets that receives the esteem and faithful reverence of all Thai Buddhist People of all social strata, and which is considered part of the Cultural and Historical heritage of the History of Siam.
They are amongst the most difficult of all amulets to find at any price, and are mostly already worn since generations by the same family members as handed down family heirlooms of their ancestors. The rest lie in the hands of the lucky, and of course the high end collector showrooms of Thailand’s Amulet Societies and Non Profit heritage Associations, as well as the museums of the state and of major temples.

It is said that in the year 1265 BE, the Ruesi Hermit Pilalai decided to make a series of powerful amulets with truly effective powers. At that time the ruler of the Kingdom Pra Sri Tanmasokea Racha was a faithful devotee to the four great Ruesi Sages, who brought a large collection of magical herbs, minerals and summoned the angelic beings of the celestial realms to assist with the empowerment ceremony on the immaterial planes.
The great Pra Maha Thera Bpiya Dtassasisri Saributra was present to preside over the blessing ceremony, and assist with empowerment and the hand molding and pressing of the Pra Pong Supan. The muan sarn sacred clay was given the name of ‘Nuea Rae Sangkwanorn’.

The great Pra Maha Thera Bpiya Dtassasisri Saributra was present to assist with empowerment and the hand molding and pressing of the Pra Pong Supan. The amulets were blessed during three whole months of rainy retreat (Traimas Blessing) as was traditional in ancient times and is still the practice to this very day. Once the Traimas empowerment was completed, the amulets were buried within the Chedi Stupas of Supanburi
The rediscovery of the Kru
In the year 2456 BE, a Tudong Monk was passing through and asked for the whereabouts of the temple of Wat Pra Sri Radtana Maha Tat. He asked a young boy named Pin, who pointed him in the right direction. The boy Pin heard later that this Forest Wanderer monk had hired some Chiinese-Thai devotees to dig up some holes in the temple, and that a horde of treasures were found along with a large repository of hiding place amulets (Pra Kru).
The Monk himself found a solid golden bowl which he took for preservation, but left all the rest of the contents of the Kkru within the Chedi. However, many of the Chinese devotees who were working on the opening of the Kru did take a large number of amulets rainging from the Pra Pong Supan to the Pra Gampeng Sork.
Once the authorities and Sangha Office heard of this, they ordered the Chedi Stupa to be hermetically sealed to prevent further theft of National heritage treasures.
Later the same year Praya Suntorn Buri (Also knownn as ‘Ee Gan Suudt’), who was the Minister of the Province of Supanburi invited his Majesty Pra Mongkut Glao Jao Yuu Hua to come and open the Kru Chamber. Once the chamber was opened, many ingots of solid gold and silver with Khom Agkhara inscriptions were found, and a large repository of amulets. The King was given a large number of the Pra Pong Supan and other amulets to his Majesty.
In olden days when the Pra Pong Supan was still very common and easy to find, many of the bullfighting arena players would like to grind up broken Pong Supan amulets and mix the powders into the hay they would give their fighting bulls to eat. This was seen to make the bull who ate hay with Pra Pong Supan powders fight more fiercely, evade the horns of its opponent and be impenetrable when taking a hit.
A very hardly known but ancient traditional way to Bucha Pra Pong Supan Amulets, is to immerse the amulet in perfume and chant Puttakun Tammakun Sangkakun 108 Times, then chant the Kata Pahung 3 times. The perfume can then be used to smear on oneself for Mercy Charm and Protection. If one wishes to empower further, one can chant the following Kata;
Ka Dtae Lig Gae Garanang Mahaa Chayyang Mangkalang Na Ma Pa Ta Gi Ri Mi Dt Gu Ru Mu Tu Gae Rae Mae Tae Ga Ra Ma Ta
The Mystical Legend of Phra Kring: The Sacred Medicine Buddha
Phra Kring, also known as the Medicine Buddha or Phra Buddha Bhaisajayaguru, stands as a revered figure in the mystical lands of Mahayana Buddhist countries, such as China, Tibet, and Taiwan. Its presence in Thailand’s Theravada tradition can be traced back to the days when Chinese migrants and businessmen ventured into the enchanting Kingdom of Siam. Among their rituals, paying homage to Phra Buddha Bhaisajayaguru became a popular practice, seeking protection and prosperity for their journeys and ventures. As fate would have it, many of these Chinese settlers eventually made Thailand their permanent home.

As they embarked on long journeys far from their beloved land, they fashioned amulets bearing the likeness of Phra Buddha Bhaisajayaguru, known as “Yau Shi Fwo” or The Medicine Buddha, to accompany them on their travels. Legend has it that the resonating sound of a ball bearing within these amulets echoed the sacred chants of Mahayana, which employ bells. However, the creation of Phra Buddha Bhaisajayaguru amulets differed from the Thai tradition. According to the Mahayana tradition, the amulets were crafted by fusing the history of His Bodhisattvahood and Enlightenment with precious metals. In the Theravada tradition, a mandatory set of yant/takrut and preferably nava loha (9 sacred metals), were employed.
Phra Kring Wat Bovornives Early Era
The origins of Phra Kring in Thailand date back to the era of King Naresuan and Phra Somdej Panaret in Ayutthaya. The ancient scriptures, known as tamra, which detail the process of creating Phra Kring, state that to forge a truly potent and sacred Phra Kring, an extensive compilation of Yant designs, comprising more than 108 variations in takrut form, must be incorporated. Unfortunately, the tamra was lost during times of war, but it was later entrusted to Somdej Ma of Wat SamPloem, who safeguarded this sacred knowledge for decades. Eventually, Somdej Pavarit of Wat Bovorn inherited this precious wisdom, yet Phra Kring remained relatively unknown until the time of Phra Sangharat Pae, the abbot of Wat Suthat. Driven by his Teacher, Somdej Vanarat Daeng’s miraculous healing, achieved through holy water infused with a piece of Kring Pavarit, Ven. Sangharat Pae became enamored with the extraordinary healing capabilities of Phra Kring. With an unwavering determination, he devoted himself to the research and study of Phra Kring craftsmanship, ultimately leading to the fame and prominence of Phra Kring Wat Suthat.
Phra Sangharat Pae adamantly claimed that Wat Suthat crafted the most exceptional Phra Kring. This proclamation was substantiated by the fact that Wat Suthat Thepwararam, also known as the Temple in the Heavens, stands as one of Thailand’s six most revered temples. The principal Buddha statue of the temple, Phra Sisakayamuni, is positioned at the heart of the city, symbolizing the triumph over demons in alignment with Tamrab Mahapichaisongkram and the profound significance of Pang Marn Vichai Style. It is a realm guarded by celestial beings and benevolent angels. Furthermore, before the end of the year 2536, all the renowned Phra Krings of Wat Suthat were meticulously molded in the presence of the Bot, a sacred and mythical space overseen by Phra Sisakayamuni. It was within this sanctified environment that the Phra Kring amulets acquired their profound ‘Palang Saksit’, or spiritual power. However, in recent times, the practice of molding Phra Krings in such a sacred manner has diminished, and the whereabouts of their current creation remain a closely guarded secret. The enigmatic allure of these sacred objects has only grown with their elusive production.

The magic of Phra Kring is found in the presence of the twelve magnificent vows made by Phra Buddha Bhaisajayaguru upon attaining Enlightenment, as recorded in the sacred Medicine Buddha Sutra.

Through his luminous lapis lazuli radiance, he awakens the dormant minds of sentient beings, guiding them on the path to enlightenment.

The Illegalization of Phra Pidta Amulets in Singapore in the 1970s: An Affront to Religious Freedom
Singapore is world famous for its Human Rights impingements, but this Thai Amulet story puts the icing on the cake, to make the leaders of Singapore look like a bunch of total nincompoops, as well as revealing them as committing crimes against Religious Beliefs. In the 1970s, Singapore passed a law that made it illegal to wear or own Thai Phra Pidta amulets. This move was seen as an impingement on religious freedom and was met with worldwide criticism. The Phra Pidta amulet is a symbol of the Buddhist faith and is believed to offer protection to the wearer.
The Thai Pidta amulet features a monk sitting in a half-lotus position with his hands covering his eyes. The literal translation of “Pidta” means closed eyes, signifying the closure of the six senses where ultimate focus and peace can be attained. I do ponder perhaps if the Singapore Government were more afraid that criminals might perhaps truly have powerful magic that can beat their systems, more than being afraid of having to catch criminals wearing an amulet that they believe does not work! It seems to me, that the Singapore Government is afraid of the power of Thai amulets, for it empowers its people tto overcome the difficulties their own government set on them, and rise above the working class breadline level, to find true wealth and success.
The amulet is popular both in Thailand and around the world, with many top Thai monks producing their own versions. The value of Phra Pidta amulets fluctuates due to a handful of factors such as the materials used, the monk who produced them, and the rarity of the piece, with some fetching upwards of two million Thai baht (64,000 USD).
Despite the amulet’s popularity, the Singaporean government felt that it was inspiring youth to commit crimes without fear of getting caught. According to them, followers also believed they could get into fights without feeling pain, thus inspiring criminal acts and violence. However, this view is not shared by many, and the law was seen as an impingement on religious freedom and an affront to human rights.
It is not the object that is at fault but rather the wrong views of the criminal-minded wearer. In fact, one of the rules of wearing a Phra Pidta amulet is to keep the five Buddhist precepts, otherwise, the amulet is said to not work for evildoers. Moreover, in the case of criminals, most would commit a crime with or without such a Phra Pidta amulet.
The move by the Singaporean government to illegalize the wearing of the Phra Pidta amulet was seen as absurd by many. After all, there are endless objects that people may consider ‘invincibility’ inducing. Should we illegalize all of them? This law was a clear affront to religious freedom and the human right to wear an object of religious faith.
The Phra Pidta amulet is a symbol of Thai Buddhist culture and miniature Buddhist arts. It is a sacred object that holds deep meaning to the Buddhist faith. To illegalize its wearing is to deny the religious rights of individuals who hold this amulet dear to their hearts. The Singaporean government, in this case, failed to understand the significance of the amulet to its followers.
In conclusion, the illegalization of Phra Pidta amulets in Singapore in the 1970s was a clear affront to religious freedom and human rights. The move was seen as absurd by many, and it is not the object that is at fault but rather the wrong views of the criminal-minded wearer. The Phra Pidta amulet is a symbol of Thai Buddhist culture and miniature Buddhist arts, and to illegalize its wearing is to deny the religious rights of individuals who hold this amulet dear to their hearts. We must ensure that such a move is not repeated anywhere in the world and that religious freedom is respected at all times.

Phra Pidta amulets hold deep spiritual significance in Thai Buddhist culture. They are not just decorative items, but powerful symbols of protection and enlightenment. Through the centuries, people have turned to these amulets to ward off evil and connect with the divine.
In Buddhism, the state of Nirodha, or “cessation,” is the ultimate goal of spiritual practice. This state is achieved through the renunciation of craving and desire, leading to the cessation of suffering and the realization of Nibbana, a state of perfect peace and freedom from suffering. Phra Pidta amulets are believed to embody this state of Nirodha, representing the meditator who has achieved enlightenment and renounced desire.
Mahayana Buddhism goes even further, asserting that Nirvana is just the other side of Samsara. One who has realized this truth can achieve liberation from any form and transcend all duality, including the concept of liberation itself. In this sense, Phra Pidta amulets are not just symbols of protection, but of ultimate liberation.
Phra Pidta amulets are fascinating votive tablets, and spiritual objets d’art, that hold great spiritual significance in Thai Buddhist culture. They are believed to offer protection and connect the wearer with the divine, embodying the state of Nirodha and ultimate liberation from suffering. Whether you are a collector, a spiritual seeker, or simply curious about this fascinating aspect of Thai culture, Phra Pidta amulets are well worth exploring. By choosing an authentic amulet and caring for it properly, you can tap into the power and mystery of these miniature Buddhist arts.
The Pra Kam Khaw amulet is an inimitable Thai Buddhist amulet that has become world-famous due to its association with LP Lersi Lingdam, an Arya Sangha Guru Master of Wat Ta Sung.

The Pra Kam Khaw amulet is the most well-known amulet associated with LP Lersi Lingdam, and is widely believed to possess miraculous powers. The first edition of Pra Kam Khaw amulets was made in 2533 BE, and consisted of 10,000 amulets. The amulets are famous for their strong power of Lap Sakkara (honorable status, promotion, and wealth), as well as their powers of Metta, Klaew Klaad, and Kong Grapan. The Pong Puttakun (sacred powder) is visibly risen to the surface, making it recognizably authentic.
LP Lersi Lingdam’s Mastery of Muan Sarn
LP Lersi Lingdam was a master of Muan Sarn, the process of creating sacred powders, and was known to make Buddha statues from powdered dried rice from his alms bowl. According to LP Lersi Lingdam, Luang Por Parn advised him to keep the first handful of the most delicious meals and empower them with incantations. Luang Por performed this for four months, constantly keeping and empowering the dried rice wherever he travelled.
Even if he came to Wat Ta Sung, he had to keep the first handful of the meals and store the Muan Sarn because the Wicha only works if the rice is kept for a period of three months of daily collection. If a single day is left out, the Wicha does not work. When the period of three to four months was finished, Luang Por Parn used the Muan Sarn to grind into sacred powders and built a Buddha statue for the shrine room where the monks would pray together.
Sacred Powers of the Pra Kam Khaw Amulet
The Pra Kam Khaw amulet comes in its original box and condition from the temple of Wat Ta Sung. These amulets are highly sacred, and believed to possess miraculous powers. LP Lersi Lingdam’s amulets are seen as a total surety for a definite result, due to the true and pure practice and dedication of this Olden Days Buddhist Guru Master, whose teachings have led so many lay devotees and ordained Monks to a higher understanding of the Dhamma.
His Abhinyā powers are irrefutable by Thai Buddhist people. The Pra Kam Khaw amulet is a must-have for any devotee of LP Lersi Lingdam and is widely believed to bring protection, wealth, and good fortune to those who wear it.
The lengendary Alchemical Maekasit Amulets of the Great Luang Por Tap, of Wat Anongkaram
An Eternal Legend in the Elusive World of Thai Occult Amulets and Magical Alchemy
Luang Por Tap, a Master Monk of the previous Buddhist Century, was renowned for his Mastery of Alchemy and Kata Akom Spellcasting Methods. He produced the legendary metallic alchemical alloy known as ‘Maekasit’ using the Wicha Len Prae Taat. Luang Por Tap’s amulet pantheon is considered to be among the most powerful alchemical amulets of all Masters, and is highly revered for Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad Maha Lap Metta Mahaniyom Maha Ud power.
The Look Om Maekasit, Pra Pid Ta Maekasit, and Pra Pim Son Ha are the most famous and outstanding amulets of Luang Por Tap’s Pantheon. The Look Om Maekasit is found in various sizes, mostly being around 1.5 Cm diameter up to 2.0 Cm. Luang Por Tap made many models of amulets in Nuea Maekasit and Parort alchemical metals, some of the most well-known being the Pra Pid Ta Maekasit, Pra Pim Pang Son Ha, Look Om Maekasit, the Look Prort Gror, and Pra Chayawat.
Below; Luang Por Tap, of Wat Anongkaram
The Pra Pid Ta Maekasit was made in several small design variations, Pim Chalud and Pim Tammada models, both of which were made in Pim Lek, Klang, and Yai (small, medium, and large). Each model differs slightly depending on which block press, and regardless of each block press, the amulets were released in two forms, ‘Baeb Dtaeng’ (filed down into a smooth and eloquent outer border) and ‘Baeb Mai Dtaeng’ (unfiled with wider irregular borders).
The Pantheon is also split into subcategories of Pim Dtor (Dtaeng and Mai Dtaeng, in small, medium, and large), Pim Chalud (higher more tapered angular model), Pim Maha Ud (bowed arms and legs model), Pid Ta Nang Yong (squatting model), the very rare Pim Gradum (button shape), and the Pim Siarn Hlaem (pointy head model).
Luang Por Tap’s Maekasit amulets are known to have different tones of color which shimmer through the metallic surface, ranging from silvery to some most highly preferred exhibits with blue, golden or greenish metallic sheen. Some of the most highly prized, rare, and sought-after amulets of Luang Por Tap were made during the time when both Luang Por Tap and the then abbot, Luang Por Nuam Puttasārō, were alive and collaborating with amulets.
Luang Por Tap inherited the Wicha Hung Nam Man Montra Saksit for making Sacred Consecration Oil from his Kroo Ba Ajarn Luang Por Nuam (6th abbot of Wat Anongkaram). Luang Por Nuam’s amulets are even rarer to find than those of Luang Por Tap himself, but it is Luang Por Tap who gained more National and International Attention. The first edition Rian Run Raek of Luang Por Nuam is especially sought after and carries an immensely high market value in the present era. However, only a few were ever made, and so they are very rarely seen.
Luang Por Tap was also known to have been a close accomplice to Pra Sangkarach Pae of Wat Sutat and Luang Phu Sukh (Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao in Chainat). In addition to his expertise in alchemy and sacred oil making, Luang Por Tap was also highly skilled in the creation of sacred amulets, which are highly sought after by collectors and practitioners alike. His amulets are known for their powerful protective and auspicious qualities, and are believed to bring good fortune, success, and prosperity to their owners.
Luang Por Tap passed away in the year 2465 BE, leaving behind a legacy of powerful amulets and sacred knowledge. Today, his amulets are still highly revered and sought after by collectors and practitioners all over the world.
Pra Pid Ta Maekasit Hlang Hua Jai Pra Bpathamang – Luang Phu Bun Wat Klang Bang Gaew
An extremely rare Pra Pid Ta amulet of Luang Phu Bun, the Pra Pid Ta Hlang Tant Tu Sa Ma Ni, of Luang Phu Bun, of Wat Klang Bang Gaew. The Yant on rear face can be seen in the famous Pra Gleep Bua amulets of LP Bun, which were discovered some decades ago and found to be documented by the temple.
Below Exhibit – Pra Pid Ta Hlang Yant Tu Sa Ma Ni Nuea Maekasit See Tong Pla Hlai
Not all models of metallurgical amulets are fully documented, but from what information is accumulated to date, it is known that Luang Phu Bun made Pra Pid Ta, and Pra Pim Samadhi Gleep Bua meditating Buddha amulets in Maekasit metals, and in more rare and fewer numbers, also in other metallurgical alchemical alloys. The Pra Pid Ta is rarer than the Pra Pim Gleep Bua, which were primarily all made from Maekasit, whereas the Pid Ta is also found in Lor Boran forged alchemical bronze alloy.
The rear faces of these amulets are found to have a number of different designs on the rear face, and in the case of the Pim Gleep Bua lotus-petal shaped Maekasit versions, 7 different models are documented (which does not mean that there are no other models made, rather, that documentation is a continuous voyage of discovery, but by no means the be-and-end-all of a pantheon of amulets.
The Pid Ta Lor Boran and Gleep Bua Maekasit amulets were never released in any official edition, rather mostly handed out by Luang Phu Bun to his devotees himself, when they would come to pay respects and make merits. The documentation to date is constructed mostly from devotees who received amulets in their hand from LP Bun himself, and showed their amulets, but it coud be, that there are much more than the officially discovered, known and documented 7 Pim.
Below; A decades old publication showing various Pra Pid Ta of Luang Phu Bun
In fact, with olden days masters, one can almost always assume, that not all of their amulets were documented, as in ancient times, there was much less attention to documenting the amulets of every monk in every year of their lives. This is also why those authors who study and uncover new information, and publish that which is known are important contributors to the preservation of knowledge about Thai Buddhist Amulets and their Makers.
The Pra Pid Ta Khao Buang has many different appearances due to the olden days fcasting methods, and is still not fully documented as a pantheon. Not all models have yet been identified. However, for now, we can name and define at least seven models of Pim Pid Ta and Pra Gleep Bua.
Luang Phu Bun is said to have been a close accomplice, and often mutually visited with the Great Luang Phu Nak of Wat Huay Jorakhae, in Nakorn Pathom. LP Bun received the methodology and mastery of the Wicha Maekasit from LP Nak, which is the ancient science of Alchemical Metallurgy from the Dtamra Saiyawaet, used for casting powerful metallic magical amulets. For this reason, the majority of Luang Phu Bun’s Maekasit amulets have a dark black sheen to them, similar to Luang Phu Nak’s Maekasit. But in some very few exhibits one can see the see tong pla hlai greenish-golden sheen which is often also seen in the amulets of Luang Por Tap, of Wat Anongkaram in Nontaburi.
The seven major documented Pim are as follows; 1. Pra Pid Ta Maha Ud Hlang Agkhara Tu Sa Ma Ni (Hua Jai Pra Bpathamang***), 2. Pra Pid Ta Maha Ud Hlang Yant Dto, 3. Pra Pim Samadhi Gleep Bua Hlang Ppra Pid Ta, 4. Pra Pim Samadhi Gleep Bua Hlang Agkhara 4 Dtua (4 Khom Agkhara Syllables on rear face, seen to vary), 5. Pra Pim Samadhi Gleep Bua Sum Hlang Pra Pid Ta (Elongated pointed arch model), 6. Pra Pim Luang Por Dto Hlang Pra Pid Ta, and 7. Pra Pim Bua Met Hlang Yant Na Ma Pa Ta (with 4 Khom Pali Syllables on rear face NA MA PA TA representing the 4 Elements).
***Please note; The term ‘Hua Jai Pra Bpathamang, comes from the Dtamra Saiyawaet Magical Grimoires, but in Dhamma Sastra (Buddha Science), it has been falsely named by the amulet world as ‘Hua Jai Pra Bpathamang’ and lists the four syllables as ‘TU SA MA NI’ whereas if we list, the 4 Noble Truths in their proper order, and notice that ‘TU SA MA NI’, are the first syllables of each Pali Sanskrit word of the 4 Noble Truths (Hua Jai Pra Ariyasaj 4), then we can see that it should be ‘TU’ for ‘Tugkh; (Dhukkha – Suffering/Dissatisfactoriness), ‘SA’ for ‘Samutayaa’ (A Cause of Suffering/Dissatisfaction), then ‘NI’ for ‘Nirote’ (Nirodha – extinguishing of all external perceptions, and of Dhukkha/Dissatisfactoriness), and finally ‘MA” for ‘Maggha (The 8 Fold Path to the Cessation of all Suffering).
The Phra Pidta of LP Nak is a highly revered amulet created by the late great Thai monk Luang Phor Nak of Wat Huay Jorake temple in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand. The Phra Pidta, also known as “the closed-eye Buddha,” is a representation of the Lord Buddha in deep meditation, entering the state of Nirodha, and is believed to bring blessings of protection, good luck, and wealth to the wearer.
The Phra Pidta amulet created by LP Nak was made usually in Nuea Mekasit alcemical metal, but also in sacred loha chanuan bronze and other brazen metal mixtures (less often seen). I is said that LP Nak himself was an adept master of alchemical metallurgy, and the Wicha Pra Pidta. It found in medium and small sizes (Pim Lek & Pim Yai) and has various models sch as the Pra Pid Ta Hoo Gradtay ‘Rabbit Ears’ model. It is believed that the Phra Pidta amulet of LP Nak has the power to protect its wearer from harm, bring good luck, and attract wealth and prosperity. Some of the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Pu Nak possess hand inscriptions scratched onto the surface of the metal, with Khom Agkhara and Sacred Yant.
Phra Pidta amulet represents a meditating Buddha entering into the state of Nirodha. Nirodha is the third of the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths and refers to the attainment of the cessation of suffering. The image of a meditating Buddha is representative of the amulet’s ability to bring peace and block out all forms of inauspicious events and bad luck, protect against all dangers and black magic. The amulet is believed to have the power to block out negative energy and to protect the wearer from harm due to the reputation of the creator and his spiritual energy.

Background Info on Phra Pidta
Since very early times in Thailand, Pra Pid Ta amulets, as well as Pra Pid Ta in the shape of Pha Yant and Bucha sculptures, have been made as objects of adoration and protection. Using the Buddhist sculpture and art that was accessible at the time, the artisans of that era developed a variety of styles and interpretations. Various Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, or Deities are fashioned into the posture of Pra Pid ta, or Pid Tawarn (meaning “closing the orifices”), to create the Pid ta posture (‘Pid Ta’ means “covering the eyes”). Pid Tawarn can seal 7, or 9 orifices (the number 7 is referred to as Pra Pid Sadtatawarn, while the number 9 is known as Pra Pid Navatawarn). The Phra Pidta amulet, also known as “the closed-eye Buddha,” is believed to bring blessings of protection, good luck, and wealth to the wearer.
The Phra Pidta amulet, represents a meditating monk entering into the state of Nirodha. Nirodha is the third of the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths and it refers to the attainment of the cessation of suffering. In Buddhist teachings, Nirodha is understood as the state of being where all mental defilements, such as ignorance, greed, and hatred, have been completely eliminated. This state is reached through the practice of meditation and the cultivation of wisdom, and it is considered the ultimate goal of Buddhism.
The third of the four noble truths according to Buddhist tradition is defined as Nirodha Sacca (also spelt Nirodha Sacca in Pali; Nirodha Satya in Sanskrit). Sacca denotes “truth” or “reality,” whereas Nirodha means cessation or extinction. Therefore, the translation of nirodha sacca is generally “truth of cessation” or “truth of the cessation of suffering.” It explicitly refers to the cessation of Dukkha (suffering) and its causes; the resultant experience is defined as nirvana. Nirodha can indicate a variety of things, such as release, cessation, extinction, the end of dukkha, and “control or restraint.” The cessation of all unsatisfactory experiences and their causes in a way that prevents them from occurring again is what Nirodha Sacca means. It is their elimination, complete absence, cessation, and ceasing from existing.
The image of a meditating Buddha entering Nirodha, is representative of the amulet’s ability to bring peace and block out all forms of inauspicious events and bad luck. It is believed that by wearing the Phra Pidta amulet, the wearer will be protected against all dangers and black magic. The amulet is believed to have the power to block out negative energy and to protect the wearer from harm. Famouls for their Kong Grapan, Metta, Klaew Klaad, and Maha Lap Magic.

Presenting a rare opportunity to admire an extremely attractive, very well-preserved, and detailed Pra Somdej Gao Chan Hoo Bai Sri Hlang Bpam Yant Hmeuk, Buddha on 9 Tiered Dais Amulet, in Nuea Pong Puttakun, with Sacred Yantra Blue Ink stamp on rear face, from the great Olden Days Master, Luang Por Kee, of Wat Huchang.
Luang Phor Kee of Wat Huchang (also spelled as ‘Luang Por Gee’, ‘Wat Hoo Chang’), was a highly renowned monk in olden days, for his purity of practice. LP Kee, was born in the year 2444 BE (Budhist Era), into a family who were mainly employed in the medical, or natural healing profession. He already knew the Wicha for making holy healing prayer water long before he became a monk, because of his experience with the family practice of healing.
Below; the rear face of the amulet has blue ink stamp with Sacred Yant embossed, and the name of Luang Por Kee, and the Temple ‘Wat Huchang’
Luang Phor Kee was a Looksit of Luang Phu Ee, of Wat Sattaheeb, and usually used the wicha of LP Ee or the Wicha of his other Kroo Ba Ajarn Grom Jaab, one of the teachers of Luang Por Parn of Wat Bang Nom Kho. He taught all of his Wicha to the current abbot, also famous for Palad Khik, Luang Phor Tee, who was also extremely favored for Wicha Palad Khik, Taw Waes Suwan, Brahma amulets, and other talismanic charms such as the Bia Gae.
Below, Just some of the famous amulets of Luang Por Kee presented in encyclopedic works.
LP Kee is known to have spent a long time in the caves and mountains and forests, wandering, around thee land, and visit various masters and temples to exchange experience and seek out magical Wicha with other Masters. It was during this time that he came to know the Great Luang Por Ee, of Wat Sattaheeb in Chonburi, who was and still is considered by many as one of the top Masters of all time for Wicha Palad Khik.
LP Kee also accumulated a plethora of Magical Wicha from many other Masters, such as the Great Luang Phor Fak of Wat Nikom Prachasan, Luang Phor Hluea Wat Sao Chanoke, Luang Phor Glan of Wat Intarawat, LP Sawai of Wat Bridaram, LP Tim of Wat Laharn Rai, LP Yid of Wat Nong Jork, Luang Phor Ding of Wat Bang Wua, Luang Phor But, of Wat Prohm Wiharn, Luang Phor Soke of Wat Pak Klong Bang Krok, Luang Phu Maekh, and Luang Phor Kong of Wat Wang Sapparot.
Luang Phor Kee was constantly visited by masses of devotees daily in his time, for magical healing, amulets, removing curses and performing exorcisms. LP Kee was highly experienced in Wicha, for having received the secret teachings of the Great Luang Phor Ee of Wat Sattaheeb, Luang Phu Daeng of Wat Takian, The Great Luang Phor Parn, of Wat Bang Nom Kho, Jao Khun Bhodi, of Wat Chaiyapreuks Mala, and also practiced under Gong Jaab, Master Adept of the Samnak Wat Pradoo Song Tam in Ayuttaya, and teacher of some of the greatest Guru Monks of that Era, in Khom Agkhara and Spellcasting methods.
Even though Luang Por Kee is long since passed away, his amulets remain as popular today, as they were during his lifetime, as does the memory of his humility and diligent practice of purity, and the work he did helping the poor, healing the sick, and restoring and improving the temple of Wat Huchang. His Por ‘Khun Palad Khik’ were highly sought after even in his time, for his ritual that would make the Palad Khik rise up and stand up on their own when LP Tee would stroke the head of the Palad Khik, and chant “NA NA NA NA”
The Palad Khik of Luang Phor Kee became very popular with bandits and gangsters, as well as amorous casanovas, who love nocturnal activities to seduce lovers, who would stroke the head of the Palad Khik three times and chant ‘NA NA NA” before approaching a lady or before confronting an enemy. Luang Phor Kee is often confused with Luang Por Tee, also of Wat Huchang, because both passed their magical tests at Wat Pradoo Song Tam. It is the tradition at Wat Pradoo Song Tam to grab the hand of the apprentice, and force his hand to inscribe the Khom Agkhara spells, in exactly the same way with all students.
And so the inscriptions of Luang Por Kee and Luang Por Tee, both famous for Palad Khik, and both attributed to the temple of Wat Huchang, are very similar, and takes an expert to separate one from the other. One easier way to tell, is that LP Kee has slightly more graceful handwriting than LP Tee, and that LP Kee made small, and medium sized Palad Khik mostly, whereas those from LP Tee were often much larger, ranging as large as up to 6 inches.
The Palad Khik of Luang Phor Kee, and Luang Phor Tee, are equally classed by most groups of aficionados, as one of the top 4 Palad Khik of all time The Palad Khik of Luang Phor Kee, and LP Tee, of Wat Huchang, are both highly esteemed on a National and Historical level, to the point where they can be mentioned among the list of the great Palad Khik of the greatest Masters in recorded history.
The Palad Khik, and other amulets, such as the immensely rare and preferred ‘Pra Somdej Hlang Ma A U‘, Bia Gae, and Takrut of Luang Por Kee became very popular, because many market traders and other devotees who received one of his amulets, all recounted high business success and improvements in quality of life, or stories of gun-stopper magic, and evasion of deadly accidents.
Luang Por Kee’s amulets became hence, a common folk tale, not only with local devotees, but also throughout the country. This made the successes of devotees wearing his amulets well known, and LP Kee came to be recognized across the country, as a Master Monk of National Fame and Status, with Powerful Magical Prowess He was often visited for help by devotees for his Wicha in healing illnesses and exorcising ghosts, demons and possessed people. His Coin and Sacred Powder Amulets, Takrut, Bia Gae, and Palad Khik remain amongst the hardest to find amulets, and of course, his World Famously Powerful Palad Khik. Of his Palad Khik, some hold a very much higher price for their rarity when carved in ivory or coral, instead of wood.
Luang Phor Kee remained Abbot of Wat Huchang for many yeaes, serving his devotees, the community, the temple and contributing to Buddhism, as well as develping his Magical Powers throughout his trajectory, until his passing, on the 10th March 2522 BE at the age of 78. His amulets remain among the most preferrred and sought-out, especially with Thai Buddhist Devotees of Paklad Khik, Takrut, and those adherent to the great Wat Prasat 2506 Ceremony, for his Pra Somdej U A MA amulets.
Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Nuea Wan Plai Dam Pim Bai Sema Amulet – Luang Phu Tim Issarigo, Wat Laharn Rai (Rayong)
This amulet, is a classic original Khun Phaen Bai Sema early era design, which is extremely rare, and known only to those who have studied the amulets of Luang Phu Tim with great fervor, and to those older devotees of the area around Wat Laharn Rai. This amulet comes with Certificate series No 1449 of the 11th August 2562 BE Luead Ban Kaay Luang Phu Tim Amulet Conservation Association Meeting. The amulet was entered for certification, but not competition, due to lack of other competitors with the same amulet (This was the only one in the whole show).
This exhibit allows viewing of all the fine details of the design, and is visibly authentic to the naked eye. The Muan Sarn Sacred Powder Clay is Highly Attractive to the Eye. An amulet of great beauty, and rarity, and in the highly preferred, and rare to find black Plai Dam powders, for serious collectors/devotees of the amulets of Luang Phu Tim. Perhaps a once in a lifetime chance to find this extremely rare Pim Bai Sema.
This exhibit is in excellent condition and well kept, with highly refined details and features, and most certainly worthy of show in the allocated competitions of its genre. The surface texture of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders has developed the classic fluffy appearance that reveals high Pong Prai Kumarn content within the black Pong Wan Plai Dam Sacred clay.
Our proprietor Ajarn Spencer, states that this is the first and only exhibit he ever managed to find, during his years collecting and studying in the Chonburi-Rayong area around Wat Laharn Rai, and that he considers it perhaps the rarest one he has had to seek out. This Pim is a very well preserved exhibit, of a highly sought after Pra Niyom Master Class Amulet, that is now extremely rare to find, since the massive revival in interest in Luang Phu Tim’s amulets, after the truth of his early amulet editions, and the now famous Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn 2515 BE Edition ‘forbidden history’ amulets were revealed to the Public.
Most of the amulets of Luang Phu Tim which were previously untalked of, and unheard of, due to lack of documentation till recently, have been snapped up during recent years, since their dramatic discovery and appearance in the international public eye.
It is very rare to find Luang Phu Tim’s Nuea Wan Plai Dam black powder Khun Phaen amulets, because many people take a great preference to the appearance of the Khun Phaen in black color, and more so, because of the famously powerful magic found within Pong Plai Dam Black Sacred Magical Earths, which is also mysteriously magnetic. Nuea Wan Plai Dam is known for both power of attraction, and Kong Grapan invincibility magic.
This all-time classic Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn of the Great Luang Phu Tim, of Wat Laharn Rai, is one of the most famous amulets of all time, and highly renowned for its true power to bring prosperity, good business, power of attraction, and mercy charm to the wearer. The reason this amulet became so world famous and popular, even in the time when Luang PhuTim was still alive, is because everybody who owned one, recounted that business and personal success and prosperity had increased constantly and steadily since wearing the amulet.
Luang Phu made other editions throughout the years, and most definitely made between 2505 BE, right up to his passing in 2518 BE. The early era and especially the 2515 BE Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn edition, are now the most preferred of all, overtaking the 2517 BE ‘Block Raek’ series, which is now considered by most to have been made by conmen. We must however add, that the official document of permission signed by Luang Phu Tim for the Bangkokian Association Owners, did list all the famous amulets we know from this edition, but that the Pra Khun Phaen was not on the list, and omitted. This means that Luang Phu gave permission for them to make (and take most back to Bangkok with them to monopolize).
We believe that Luang Phu Tim began making amulets at least 35 years before he passed away (which would be around 2483-2485 BE), as most Master Monks begin distributing their amulets around age 50 if not long before (usually long before), and it is not credible to believe the Bangkokian Monopolists, that Luang Phu Tim only made Pra Khun Phaen amulets in 2517, the final year before he passed away (Impossible!). This is underlined by the fact that there is photographic evidence that Luang Phu Tim was already a notionally acclaimed Master, invited as one of the 245 top masters to bless amulets in the Wat Prasat 2506 BE 4th biggest blessing ceremony in the history of Thai Buddhism, and many other important ceremonies in the years from 2500 BE onwards.
It is hence impossible that if Luang Phu Tim was already being asked to assist with other Great Masters ike Luang Phu To Wat Pradoo Chimplee, Luang Por Jong, Por Tan Klai, Luang Por Ngern Wat Don Yai Horm, and the like, that he would not already have attained fame for empowerment with his own amulets beforehand. It is merely that the bangkokian Monopokist showroom owners and book publishers, only first ever heard news and traveled to Wat Laharn Rai when it was already almost too late, in the final year of Luang Phu’s life. This is also proved by the fact that these Bangkokian 2518 BE-Only monopolists publish books showing Luang Phu Tim’s first edition Samanasak Monk Coin, from 2510 BE, as he was given a Royally Decreed Title of Pra Kroo, which is an act of State Recognition of his merits and a raising of status to be a Royally Accepted and Decreed Monk.
Hence, if Luang Phu Tim was elevated to a Royal Decree status in 2510 BE, and count were made to celebrate the occasion, how can the Bangkokian Monopolists dare to claim that Luang Phu Tim only ever made amulets in 251`7, and that the only Pra Khun Phaen he made were in 2517, the last year of his life. This makes no sense, considering, the reason the Bangkokians sponsored the 2517 BE edition, was because Luang Phu’s fame for his mastery of Wicha Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn had reached their ears.
For it to reach their ears sitting on their butts in Bangkok, it seems to have taken at least 17 to 35 years at least for them to actually get the wax out of their ears. Lazy traders in lazy seats in lazy Bangkok showrooms. They do not travel all the time, and they were not at the temple of Wat Laharn Rai through all the years Luang Phu was there. These Bangkokains merely turned up in Luang Phu’s final year and sponsored an edition, and used book publishing to suppress knowledge of the previous editions they never got to monopolize (by buying them all and waiting till they get rare, sitting on them to speculate).
The Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn is a preferred choice of both the wise investor and devotee, as well as the perfect choice for those Devotees who seek the immense power of Luang Phu Tim’s now Legendary amulets. The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim, are renowned for their power, made from the skullbone of a Hoeng Prai. Luang Phu Tim’s Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, Pim Yai, and Pim Lek amulets are amongst the rarest and most highly sought after amulets in Thailand, and are very difficult to encounter, due to having been made in small number editions, which is nowhere near enough to provide for the masses of devotees around the world who seek such an amulet as this.
One can see a very fluffy and rich texture of the clay visibly on the surface of the amulet, in reaction with the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders. It is a part of the amulet appreciation society expert’s method of authentication to examine and study the appearance of how the Muan Sarn Sacred Powder develops in surface texture, tonality and porosity of the surface, as well as the appearance of Luang Phu Tim’s famous Pong Prai Kumarn which rises up and through the surface.
We ourselves feel that all of Luang Phu Tim’s amulets are equally Sacred and Powerful in their own way, regardless of which edition or which temple he blessed them at, but we do, as do all Amulet Appreciation Fanatics, recognise the categories of preference within the hierarchies of different editions, which is for us one of the more subtle and fascinating parts of the study of high end amulets within the collector scene, and part of the fine art of learning how to recognise and value Sacred Amulets of High Preference and Rarity.
The Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim amulet, has has been one of the most popular amulets in the whole Pantheon of Thai Buddhist Amulets of the last century, and of all time, and is now almost impossible to encounter commonly anywhere in any amulet emporium, except for the most elite showrooms, and at elevated prices. This Pra Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Pim Bai Sema, is even rarer than the Pra Khun Phaen 15, and a highly desirable exhibit, that is among the rarest amulets in the pantheon of this master.
The Sacredness of the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn is legendary and unquestioned in Thailand, and its magical power is commonly accepted by all. The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn are considered to be amongst the most powerful powders to empower amulets in existence. This amulet is a wonderful opportunity for devotees who seek the true power of a world class amulet from a world class Master-Monk, and a wonderful Ongk Kroo reference study exhibit to peruse under the eye loupe. The amulet is a perfect and authentic study material, to train the eyes as to the appearance of the Muan Sarn and Surface textures of the Classic amulets of Luang Phu Tim Hence, the amulet is also a perfect ‘Ongk Kroo’ reference study material for students of the Pantheon, and will increase your chances of spotting an essential rarity at the right price, and without danger of risking a fakery.
The making of the Muan Sarn Sacred Pong Prai Kumarn powders Luang Phu Tim, came from the Wicha which Luang Phu had inherited through apprenticeship form one of his high Kroo Ba Ajarn, Kroo Ba Sangkh Tao, who was also his true Uncle. Part of the formula included Pong Prai Maha Phuudt, which was made from the Skull of a male Kumarn who died in the Womb, and who died on a Saturday and was cremated on a Tuesday. This is part of the ancient Khmer Necromantic Formula for Authentic Powerful Prai Occult Magic, as practiced in Ancient Times. It is said that Pra Kroo Sangkh Tao’s Wicha Akom was so powerful that when he spat on the floor, the floor would crack where his spit would fall.
Due to the fact that Monks are not allowed to seek and find this Sacred and Extremely Powerful Necromantic Substance, Luang Phu would perform Korb Kroo Initiation for protection against Black Magic and the Phuudtaa Spirit Phantoms, so they could go forth to seek and find the substances to donate to him for the making of the Pong Prai Kumarn. The Initiated Lay Devotees and Apprentices to his sorcery, would then wait for the news of the right circumstances of death of Kumarn Ghosts, and go out to collect the substances and prepare them as instructed with the Wicha. They would seek the permission of the relatives of the dead, to obtain the substances to enable the ghosts of the deceased to receive merits to free them from their Karmic residues by donation of their mortal remains to be made into amulets.
They would receive the ceremonial ritual liberation of their souls from Luang Phu Tim, who would speak with the spirits of the dead to receive their acknowledgement for the process of transformation through the Nibbana Sutra, and the Muan Sarn would then be prepared according to the Dtamra Saiyasart of Necromancy, to make the Pong Prai Kumarn.
Luang Phu instructed his apprentices and the relatives of the Funerals to take care not to incinerate the whole skeleton, but to keep the skulls to bring to Luang Phu to use them for the making of the Pong Prai Kumarn. This is one of the reasons why his Pong Prai Kumarn is so powerful, because it does not contain the skeleton bone powders, rather, only those of the skulls. As a result, Luang Phu Tim’s Pong Prai Kumarn has been recorded by experience of devotees to posses the highest Maha Pokasap Power of all Pong Prai Kumarn ever made, with Immense Metta Maha Niyom and Klaew Klaad Power, to induce Mercy Charm, Attract Lucky Fortunes (e.g. Lottery Winnings), and to Protect from Deadly Accidents and Disasters.
Luang Phu Tim Issarigo, is of course not only one of the most highly acclaimed and sought after Guru Monks for his amulets, he is the holder of the highest esteem in Thai Buddhist amulet history for Pong Prai Kumarn powders. Luang Phu Tim, is Internationally Acclaimed, for his famous Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, and Look Om powder balls. As to the classic ‘Rian’ type coin image amulets which have become all time favorites, and eternally, world famous classic amulets of the high end variety. His Rian Jaroen Porn, and Rian Nakprok Paed Rorp are among the most highly sought after coin amulets of all.
Since his passing, his devotees and apprenticed monks, have now become the world’s top living masters for the making of Pra Khun Phaen Pong Pra Kumarn, and literally dozens of encyclopedic books, have been printed, documenting both this great master monk, and his classic amulets of high esteem. Buddhist monk coins with his image and others with Buddha images and other deities and imagery are amongst the most highly collected amulets and most expensive of all of the great Luang Phu Tim. He has various direct lineage apprentices, Who are continuing to progress and spread his most powerful and world-famous Wicha.
Of all of these masters, certainly the most famous, preferred and highly respected Looksit, was Luang Por Sakorn, of Wat Nong Grub, who is also now deceased, and whose amulets are fast becoming just as highly sought after. Following this Master one could possibly estimate the great Luang Phu Sin, of Wat Laharn Yai, Luang Por Rat of Wat Pha Hwaay, Luang Por Foo of Wat Bang Samak, and Pra Ajarn Somkid, of Wat Beung Tata (Rayong).
Presenting a rarely-seen Master-Class Amulet of the Great Luang Phu Hmun; the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders Variety, the Pra Sivali Ruay Tan Jai Pim See Liam Hlang Yant – Nuea Pong Puttakun Pasom Wan 2543 BE. Only about 3000 amulets were made in this series, which considering the popularity of Luang Phu Hmun’s amulets and the passage of time since their release, means that almost all of them already reside with devotees who refuse to part with them.
This is hence, a rare chance to admire the highly prized limited edition Pra Sivali Hlang Yant amulet. of LP Hmun Tidtasilo (Wat Ban Jan), in Nuea Pong Pasom Wan. This is a very perfectly well preserved exhibit, which was released during the famous 2543 BE ‘Ruay Tan Jai’ (Rich as Your Heart Desires) edition, at Wat Pha Nong Lom.
The front face of the amulet depicts Pra Sivali (also called ‘Pra Chimplee’ in Thai Buddhist Etymology), carrying a Glod Umbrella and Alms-Bowl, on Tudong, wandering through the forest.

The Rear Face of the amulet has a Sacred Yant embossed upon it, with the Sacred Kata Hua Jai Heart Mantra of Pra Sivali, in Ancient Khmer Sanskrit (Khom); ‘NA CHAA LEE DTI’. Below the Yant, are the four elements invoked, with the syllables ‘NA MA PA TA’

Luang Phu Hmun was born in the year 2437 BE, and was ordained as a young boy aged 14 into the Sangha, as a Samanera Novice. He was later then ordained as a fully fledged Bhikkhu, when he came of age, in the year 2460 BE. He remained Ordained throughout his life.
Luang Phu Hmun was a Maha Thaera Guru Monk of great age and who received Great reverence and Respect from the people of Tambon Ban Jan for his Diligence and Purity in practicing the Vinaya as a Buddhist Monk.
His predictions and instructions for ceremonial empowerment of amulets after his physical death, have been followed to the letter since his passing, for he gave special instructions to inform as to when and how he would return with his spiritual presence to empower amulets posthumously.
His Miracle Powers are Legendary, with so many stories of Miraculous events related to this Monk, who has seen the Reign of Five Kings in his Lifetime. For this reason he is known as the ‘Pra Maha Thaera Ha Phaen Din’ (Great Senior Master-Monk of 5 Kingdoms)
Luang Phu passed away. on the 11th March of the year 2546 BE, at the age of 109 Years old, after 87 years in the Sangha, serving Buddhism throughout almost his complete lifetime.
It is said, that just before the moment of his passing, LP Hmun was heard to recite these words;
“Whoever wears my amulets, and has an ethical life andf profession, will see their assets increase steadily, have luck and good fortunes in Busines. Gain fame and respect in the profession, and high likeability socially. The Devas will smile kindly upon you and protect you, and point the way forward to success and happiness.
But these blessings will only come to those who do good, think good, and have good intention, and respect the Buddhist Precepts”.
The word ‘Hmun’ means to turn and increase (revolve). Luang Phu Hmun always foretold that those who Bucha his amulets, would turn their luck and fortunes around, and increase their Business Success.
Luang Phu is known to have foretold. that those who Bucha his amulets will be protected from ‘Dtaay Hoeng (premature deadly accidents), and that the Devas will Protect the wearer of his amulets.

A Rare Loi Ongk Pra Pid Ta Thaan Sung (high Dais) Buddha Image Statuette amulet, in Nuea Pong Kluk Rak, with hand inscribed Yant Putto, and Khom Inscriptions, from the Great Luang Por Dam, of Wat Mai Nopparam, in Naratiwat Province, in the deep South of Thailand on the Malay border. Luang Por Dam was the first apprentice in the Wicha of Pra Pid Ta Magic, to the Great Luang Por Kron, of Wat Bang Sae. This exhibit differs from many, in the fact that it has had red Rak Chart Jeen Boran coated on the base.
The Pid Ta is made using the very same Muan Sarn Sacred Powders admixture, empowerment, and inscriptions, as those of the Great Luang Por Kron, and the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Dam himself, have now become legendary in their own right, and stand alone on their own merits as Pra Niyom master Class Category amulets.
Highly revered and collected by Looksit (Devotees) of his Mentor Luang Por Kron, a Buddhist Master Monk from Malaysia. Luang Por Kron was Abbot of Wat Bang Sae in the province of Kalantan.
He made many Pid Ta amulets which were so very preferred (‘Niyom’). It is said in Thai Amulet circles that, in the same way that we prefer the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang as a Niyom amulet, so, in Malaysia and even Singapore, the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Dam, and his Mentor Luang Por Kron, became just as sought after and beloved. Malaysians know Luang Por Dam very well, for his temple is very close to the Malaysian border in Naratiwat, which is one of the reasons LP Dam was able to be a close accomplice of LP Kron, and receive and continue his Wicha.
The Pra Pid Ta amulets of Luang Por Dam of Wat Mai Nopparam, have become ever more comparable and popular to those of his Mentor and Wicha Inheritance Kroo Ba Ajarn Luang Por Kron, for the fact that Luang Por Kron’s amulets are almost impossible to find anymore these days, and the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Dam have hence become the favored alternative, for they are considered to possess the magic of both Masters.
Below; Luang Por Kron – Wat Uttamaram (Kalimantan Malaysia)
As to Luang Por Dam’s Mentor, LP Kron, Malaysian Buddhists do not often call him Luang Por Kron as Thai people do, rather ‘Tok Racha‘, which means something similar to Thailand’s top Royal Monk always being called ‘Pra Sangkaracha’.
It is said that despite the fact that most of the surrounding households in the vicinity of Luang Por Krons temple were Muslim, that he earned their respect, and was an honored person. He was not called Luang Por Kronby Malays, as we call him in Thailand, rather, was named ‘Tok Raja’, which means ‘ as equal to the Sangha Raja’ .
The reason for this comes from a legend that the daughter of a powerful Sultan of Kalantan was cursed with a black magic spell, which caused his mind to become strangely affected, and even doctors and psychologists could not help to cure him, and even the Muslim witch doctors could not break the spell with their magic.
But Luang Por Kron was able to heal her, and return her to sanity. This caused LP Kron to recieve great respect from the Sultan who then gave him the honorary name of Tok Raja. His most preferred amulets are the Pra Pid Ta, which were mostly hand made molds, in Muan Sarn Sacred Powders with Lacquer (Nuea Pong Kluk Rak), some very few in carved wood, and a very few are sometimes seen in carved ivory.
Luang Por Kron began making Pra Pid Ta amulets sometime around the year 2480 BE onwards, mostly making hand molded clay models, resulting in each one having a very original appearance, some with very wide legs, others less so. Most were made in Nuea Pong Kluk Rak herbal powders with lacquer mixed into the clay, and hand molded, to form an inimitable effect that has made his Pra Pid Ta amulets so original in design.
Many of his hand molded Pid Ta do not have a dais and have very wide legs, whereas others have a more standard form with inscription, and less wide legs, and usually with inscriptions of Unalome and Yant on the surface of the image. His other highly preferred amulets among devotees, are the Rian Roop Dork Jik 1st edition coin of 2500 BE, and the second edition coin, the Rian Roop Khai of 2505 BE.
A Top Master-Class amulet, from LP Dam, first apprentice of Malaysia’s Greatest Master of the Wicha Pra Pid Ta
The Pid Ta can be used as a Loi Ongk Statuette on the altar for Bucha, or be worn as an amulet encased. This exhibit is highly recommended to use for altar worship, as it has a wide sturdy base, and is fitting for placement on flat surfaces.
The Pra Kring Upakut Muang Ngay Loi Ongk Statuette Buddha was released in the year 2512 BE, at Wat Pra Singh, in Chiang Mai, North Thailand. The Pra Kring Upakut was cast and forged in Sacred Chanuan Alloy, along with the equally famed and sought-after Pra Ruang Rang Pern, Rian Somdej Pra Naresuan Maharaj Royal King Coin, and Pra Chayawat Naresuan amulets. At that time, the blessing ceremony for these amulets became the largest mass blessing ceremony of Northern Thai Lanna Amulet History, funded and organised by Commanding Police officer, and Mayor of Chiang Mai Province, Pan Tamruaj Aek Nirand Chaynam. In addition, His Majest King Bhumipol Adulyadej Rama 9 attended the ceremony to perform the ‘Te Tong’ gold pouring ceremony part of the forging ritual of the amulets.
Many Great Master Monks from around Thailand were invited to come and assist in the empowerment and blessing of the amulets, which were made in order to raise funds to build the Pra Naresuan Stupa Chedi Reliquary as a Memorial Monument to the first King of Thailand, who united the Kingdoms of the various city states to defeat the Burmese, and unite the nation. Once the funds were raised after release of the amulets, a Chedi Stup was built dedicated to King Naresuan Maharaj, at Mueang Ngay In Chiang Daw, as a monument of the city. The statuettes were made from Nava Loha (9 Sacred Metals), in numbers of 2512 amulets only, making these amulets extremely rare to find in the present day. The Grand Putta Pisek (Buddha Abhiseka), was performed on the 15th January 2512 BE at the Worawiharn Pra Singh Wora Maha Wiharn shrine-room in Chiang Mai.
Among the great number of 40 Powerful Master-Monks present to empower the amulets in the Putta Pisek ceremony, were; Oor Tan Klai of Wat Suan Khan, Luang Por Nam of Wat Don Sala, Luang Phu To of Wat Pradoo Chimplee, Luang Por Nor, of Wat Ta Ruea, Luang Por Tiam, of Wat Gasatrirat, Luang Por Tong Yoo, of Wat Mai Nong Pra Ongk, Luang Por Tiang, of Wat Khao Roop Chang, Luang Por Pring, of Wat Bote Goeng Tanu, Kroo Ba Wang, of Wat Ban Den, Luang Por Chaem, of Wat Wang Daeng Nuea, Luang Por Chern, of Wat Dtamnak Nuea, Luang Por Mueang of Wat Ta Haen, and the great Luang Por Tim, of Wat Chang Hai.
For this reason, this edition of mulets is seen as highly sacred and powerful, for the blessings of these Great Masters and many others, with a powerful and Grand Ritual Ceremony. The Pra Kring Naresuan, Upakut, are seen as the number one Pra Kring amulets of the Lanna Region of this Era. The Pra Kring Naresuan is known around the Nation for its power and sacred blessings, and rarity, and is revered, and soigh-after by many Thai Buddhist People. Although for most, this is a mere hope and dream, for the chances of encountering one, are far and few between, due to the small numbers made of each amulet.
Pra Ajarn Sawai (Abbot of Wat Racha Nadda in Bangkok), was the Monk presiding over the Putta Pisk Ceremony. Before the Forging of the Sacred Chanuan Metallic Alloys, and Casting of the amulets, a host of Gold, Silver and Bronze Yantra Foils were inscribed with Magical Spells in both KHom and Agkhara Lanna script, within ancient Sacred Geometry designs, which were distributed to the most powerful monks around the Nation, and blessed during a whole year, before returning them to Wat Pra Singh, for the forging ceremony, to empower the Sacred Chanuan Metals. T.ese Yantra Foild were smelted together with many other kinds of Sacred Metallic Artifacts,

Before making a choice with Pra Niyom amulets from World Famous Masters, it is important to study, and know which editions and which block mold pressings are the preferred amulets, in order to know which ones are carry a higher price tag and which ones a lower price. In principle, any amulet blessed by the same Master should be equally powerful and Sacred. However, the Pra Pid Ta 2521 – 2523 BE three year Blessings series is of course, for those whose budgets can afford it, a most recommendable amulet for both protection and wealth.
The Pra Pid ta Jumbo 2 is also very useful for Practitioners of Buddhism, as Buddhanussati Buddhist Remembrance to practice the Mindfulness Taught by the Buddha, and especially useful meditation amulet for those who are practicing Dhyana Meditation, and seeking Nirodha, the extinguishing of all suffering.

However, due to certain editions having Miraculous Events in the News making them more famous and popular, as well as the Collectorship Scene and the Appreciation Societies who Value and Catalogue the various editions, have caused certain models and series editions to become extremely expensive for their Master Class Status.
Below; The ‘gesa’ (Hairs) of Luang Phu To are visible in the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the amulet. this is an essential aspect of investigating the Muan sarn of Luang Phu To Pra Pid Ta amulets, which always have a certain quantity of the hair of Luang Phu To in their mixture and visible on the surface to greater or lesser extent.
It is therefore not necessary for somebody who merely seeks a powerful amulet, to buy the more expensive models, and with a bit of effort to study and make wise decisions, one should choose always what is within one’s own budget.
For those who seek a Sacred Powerful Amulet blessed by this Master, there are many more affordable alternative editions to the Pra Niyom Master Class editions, which we hope to provide ever increasingly along with detailed explanations of each edition and series, so that you can distinguish the differences and make your choices accordingly.

The Sangkati Sash drapes over the left forearm of the Buddha Image with clearly defined lines, and blends with the chest in subtle fashion. The fingers are clearly defined and elongated.
The surface of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders has developed a very fluffy texture from the Holy Water sprayed over it, increasing the beauty of the amulet, which is a classic effect of the changing humidities of the atmosphere, and this has given the amulet is distinguished look of authenticity.
Those who seek Sacredness but do not wish to speculate on increasing value, or enter into show competitions for first prize, do not need to spend their money on a Master Class Level Series Amulet, rather, can seek alternatives blessed by the same Master at lower price.
