The World Famous Hun Payont amulet, of Ajarn Loi Po Ngern, Great Ayuttaya Master and direct lineage continuance of the Wicha of Luang Por Glan of Wat Prayatigaram. The Hun Payont of Ajarn Loi, are said to be the number one Hun Payont amulets of all time, and are the most sought after and desired items by devotees of this kind of amulet. Unfortunately, the amulets of this great olden days Master. Perhaps the number one Hun Payont in Historical Documentation, ancient and highly reputed for its power, the Hun Payont of the Great Ajarn Loi Po Ngern, Great Olden  Days Lay Master of the Ayuttaya Province.

Ajarn Loi was born in the month of February 2454 in Nakorn Sawan, but later moved to live in Bang Prahan in Ayuttaya. He became the apprentice of Luang Por Glan of Wat Prayat. After the passing of LP Glan, Ajarn Loi continued his practice of Magic with Luang Por Bpaen of Wat Sao Tong Mai in Ayuttaya.

Ajarn Loi learned many Wicha with Luang Por Bpaen of Wat Sao Tong Mai, who was well versed in Wicha Saiyasart, but Ajarn Loi himself was also Adept in Artisanry of the Chang Sip Moo Fine Arts level of prowess. He thus taught Ajarn Loi all of his Wicha, and methods of weaving the spellbound Hun Payont, Takrut and other amulets, and Ajarn Loi would make them in the finest fashion. Ajarn Loi was a fine artisan of the Chang Sip Moo group, and received Wicha from Luang Por Bpaen, Luang Por Glan, and other masters, but was the most Adept of all at weaving the Hun Payont Golems with his Artistic ability to make the effigies in all sorts of postures, and dress them with all kinds of regalia.

 

The Hun Payont comes from the word ‘Payont’ which means an effigy that has been brought to life by Sorcerous Magick. Hun Payont may be made in various forms, such as the form of a Human, or some other Magickal creature, or animal, depending on the needs of the user and intended uses of the Adept who makes them. Hun Payont are made from various substances, such as the Hun Hyaa Saan (Hay/Straw), Hun Gan Bai Mai San (leaves), Hun Thao Wan (magical vines), Hun Dtakua (mercurial lead), Hun Khee Pheung (wax), Bai Mai Ta (leaves), Hun Gae Salak (carved wood), Hun Daay (cord wrap), Hun Pha (cloth bound), Hun Din (molded claay), Hun Din Phao (baked clay), Hun Hin (carved stone), Hun Krabueang (ceramic), Hun Poon (cement), Hun Ngern/Tong (silver or gold), Hun Loha (Iron)

The Hun Payont, is an amulet that is found to date back to the times of the Kassapa Buddha. The Kassapa Buddha, is said to have made a Payont effigy, to protect his Relics, before he himself passed into Nibbana.

200 Years Later, King Asoka opened a shrine, to remove and preserve the relics, but the shrine was inhabited by a Hun Payont. King Asoka was forced to invoke and summon the God Indra, who manifested as a Brahman, and performed Incantations, enabling King Asoka to enter and remove the Saririkadhatu Relics.

In the world of Sorcery, all lineages believe in the existence of different kinds of spirits, which can be imbued within effigies or controlled, or beseeched to perform a multitude of tasks.

Hun Payont Ya San Mad Daay Daeng Akom Ajarn Loi

There are many Animist and Necromantic amulets which use different types of spirits which are Hoeng Prai Ghosts, Devas, Bhuta, Kumarn Tong, Rak Yom, In Jantr, Phu Some, In Gaew, Mae Takian, Ma Hoeng Prai, and many others such asYaksa Monsters, to inhabit an effigy.
Great Adepts are the only ones able to create Hun Payont Golem Effigies, which are then brought to life with Necromancy and imbued with any of a number of kinds of spirits.  All Hun Payont must be empowered by a Master who has Mastered the Wicha Akarn Sam Sip Sorng 32 invocationss of the 32 elements within a living being, to make the effigy able to displace itself (move around), and to emit magickal Miracles to protect wealth and possessions within its enclave. If intruders enter, the Hun Payont will create illusions that drive the thieves away, and will also scare away all kinds of demons and ghosts that enter the household to cause any havoc. Hun Payont are very protective of the belonging within the home and for this reason excellent guards.


Hun Payont differ from Kumarn Tong, in the sense that the Kroo Ba Ajarn would give life to the Hun Payont himself without necessity to call upon an existing spirit, whereas a Kumarn Tong is reanimated by calling a Bhuta, a Deva or Child Ghost to inhabit the effigy, to help humans, in exchange for an auspicious rebirth in the heavens after its lifetime within the Kumarn.

The Hun Payont is also renowned to be able to bring wealth and attract good business, and is open to being asked for favors and to perform missions, such as chasing away your enemies. It is also believed to possess Metta Mahaniyom ‘Great Preference’ Magick, which we know in English, as ‘Mercy Charm’, as it is reputed to attract the compassion and favor, of those who approach and interact with you.

According to the ancient tradition, a Hun Payont should be rewarded and appeased through the Gruad Nam water pouring ceremony when performing prayers and Bucha.


A very rare exhibit of the Pra Kru Wat Suwan amulet find blessing ceremony, an ancient burial place amulet, classed as an official model of the pantheon of amulets attributed to the great Luang Por Niam of Wat Noi. This exhibit is the Pra Pim Nakprok Klong Takian Nuea Chin Takua Sanim Daeng, A very valuable addition for collectors of the Pra Kru Wat Suwan Hiding Place Find amulet, and Luang Por Niam. The amulets were blessed at Wat Suwan along with the series he made at Wat Noi (which are in truth, one and the same and of equal value, and only differ academically, but otherwise, are equal to each other).

 

Luang Por Niam was the number one Kroo Ba Ajarn and Ordaining Officer of the great Master Monk Luang Por Parn of Wat Bang Nom Kho, who was witnessed to have died in complete happiness and relaxation, in meditative bliss, as an attained ascended Master. For this reason, Luang Por Noi has many faithfull devotees around the world, who worship him and his teachings, and revere his attainments, and wish to wear one of his blessed amulet.

Luang Phor Niam

Luang Por Parn is worshiped as one of the Top 10 Greatest Guru Monks of present-day in Thailand & many worshippers all around the world. He was the closest disciple of Luang Por Niam

KATA PRA NAKPROK

Kata Pra Nakprok, and the chanting it to Pra Nakprok amulets and Buddha statues, is the Thai Buddhist Method for Praying to the Pra Nakprok Naga Canopy Buddha. Pray to on Saturdays or for those Born on Saturday.This Bpaang is of the Buddha sitting in Samamadhi (concentrative meditation), on top of a Naga, the Naga’s head is raised over Buddha’s to form a canopy. It is known as “Bpaang Nakprok”

The Buddha remained in blissful rapture under the Acabhalanikaroda for seven days, whereupon he moved to the Mucalinda tree to the Southeast side of the Bodhi tree. A terrible rainstorm began, pouring down on the forest for a whole seven days without stopping. Payanaga Mucalinda, who was King of the Nagas, came up from the naga Realm in the underworld and coiled himself underneath the Buddha, making a cushion seven stories high, to keep him dry.

He rose up and leaned his head over the Lord opening his neck canopy to shade the Buddha from the rain, as well as keeping watch to protect him from all sorts of parasitic, poisonous and preying animals and creatures. As the rains ceased to fall, the Naga King uncoiled and changed into a Human form and raised his hands in reverence to Buddha.

In this moment, the Buddha uttered the following Kata (words);
Sukhoewiwego Dtudtassa Sudtadhammassa Bpassadtoe Abhayaabpach-chang Sukhang Loke Bpaanapuudtesuu Sanyamosukhaa Wiraakadtaa Loke Gaamaanang Smadtiggamo Asmimaanassa Winayo Edtang We Bparamang Sukhang.

 

“Tranquility is the pleasure of he who has listened to and understood the Dharma intently, who sees conditioned things for what they really are, and does not seek to harm others. Of he who has abolished his passions and cravings, lust and desires, he who has stepped beyond all craving for sensual pleasures and endured in his efforts to do away with self conceited attitudes, has the greatest pleasure”.
The statue of Buddha sitting on seven coils of the Naga King snake was created to remember this occasion of the Naga paying reverence to Lord Buddha, and the representation of him sitting on top of the coils as if seated upon a royal throne is used for two reasons; 1. Aesthetics, 2. Brahmin influence.

 

A more authentic and historical version of this Buddha image is sometimes seen in the form of the Nagas coils wrapped around and covering the Buddha’s body with four or five coils around him. The only part of the body visible being Lord Buddha’s shoulders, neck and head, which is also semi enclosed by the head and canopy of the Naga leaning over him.

Luang por Niam, was responsible for blessing the many amulets found in the Kru Wat Suwan in Ang Tong, and added his own amulets from Wat Noi,, which are despite being the same amulets, received a second blessing (making their slightly cheaper price hard to understand). The two different releases are easily and visibly different, due to the surface effects from being hidden within a Kru Chamber.. This exhibit of the Pra Sangkajjai is evidently a direct release from Wat Noi, due to the slightly greenish-black tone, with white Kraap mildew, whereas the exhibit which he buried at Wat Suwan.

The Pra Gru Wat Suwan Series

The Pra Kru Wat Suwan Pantheon of amulets were discovered, around the Year 2500 Buddhist Era, and were found at Wat Suwan, located in the Province of Ang Tong, above Ayuttaya, and adjacent to Lopburi and Singhburi Provinces in North Central Thailand. The amulets were then also reblessed in celebration of the find, and the great Luang Por Niam of Wat Noi in Supannburi was invited to preside over, and empower the amulets during the 2506 Kru Discovery amulet find Celebration Ceremony.

 

The natural appearance of an authentic Pra Kru Wat Suwan leaden amulets, is that they have a fine layer of Kraap Kru arising on portios ofthe surface, showing red rust from oxidisation. It is also important to note that the Pra Kru Wat Suwan amulets did not have their edges filed off into perfect frames, and have rough unfiled edges because of this factor. This is one of the first things to look for when collecting authentic Pra Kru Wat Suwan artifacts.

According to historical records, the great master Monk of Wat Noi in Supannburi, Luang Por Niam, was invited to assist in the making, casting, and empowerment of the additional amulets which were being made. This makes the Pra Kru Wat Suwan enter into the Pantheon of aficionados of this Monk and his Amulets, and their popularity has become ever more legendary, to the point where the Pra Kru Wat Suwan is now a piece of National Historical Heritage.

 

The age of the ancient burial find models ranges up to 700 years to 1000 years old, and the edition added by Luang Por Noi is dated around the Mid-Ratanakkosin Era, making them past the Multi-Centenarian level (more than a few Centuries Old).

Many different Pim (models) of amulets were found in lesser and greater numbers, all differing slightly, due to the ancient casting methods used during olden days, making it impossible to make thousands of identical amulets as seen in the modern era, with modern block press engineering technology. The amulets were cast from ancient mercurial leaden sacred alloy, & also were found in reddish baked Eearthen sacred clay. The amulets exist in many forms;

Such as the Pra Upakut, Pra Sangkajjai, Pra Rod Lampun, Pra Ruang Rang Pern, Pra Lila Laweng, Pra Lila Kampaeng Gaew walking Buddha votive tablets, Pra Pratummaas, Pra Supann Hlang Pra,Pra Mahesworn Nuea Chin Ngern silver leaden amulets, Pra Pong Supan Benjapakee amulets, identical to those found at the Kru Wat Pra Sri Mahatat find, Pra Lor Pim Pra Pratan Buddha Immages (in small and large sizes), and Pra Paruhnang Loi Ongk Buddha statuette amulets, Pra Pim Mokkhala Saribut (Maugdalyayana and Saributra) Buddha amulet, the Pra Tham Suea Ruesi Amulet in both Pim Hnaa Gae and Pim Hnaa Ruesi, Pra Kum Nakorn Khosa, Pra Pim Wat Rachadesa, Pra Put Pim Siarn Hlaem pointed head Buddha votive tablet in leaden alloy, The Pra Kong Lampun Benjapakee amulet, all versions of the Khun Phaen Ban Krang earthen amulets in all models, such as the Pim Khaen Orn, Pim Bai Mayom, Pim Pra Pratan, Pim Lueay, Pim Song Pon Yai, Pim Plai Dtat Diaw, Pim Plai Koo, Khun Phaen Pim Pha Seek, and so on.

 

 

This amulet is highly recommended for those born on Saturdays, as their auspicious ‘Birthday Buddha’ to increase Good Karma (Serm Duang). The front face of the amulet features the Buddha sat in Meditation on a coiled 7 headed Naga Throne, depicting the moment a Naga rose over the buddha to make a canopy for him to shelter from the rain.

 

The rear face of the amulet has the typical Yant Dtp found on Ayutthaya Kru find era Klong Takian odel type amuets.

Luang Phu Mun Puritatto

Rian Lai Ganok Sacred Guru Monk Coin with ‘Ganok’ flamed embellishments around the edges, and the Image of Luang Phu Mun Puritadto, of Wat Pha Sutawas emblazoned. This is a limited series Gammagarn version, with series code stamp, which is seen on the Sangkati sash of the Guru Monk, bearing the Code Met Nga Sesame seed shaped stamp, with a Khom Sanskrit Letter embossed.

Luang Phu Mun Thai amulet

The amulet has the images of an almsbowl, a kettle and a Glod Umbrella, the basic traveling necessities of the Thai Tudong Forest Tradition Lineage of LP Mun. The amulet was released in 2520 BE, and is first edition, after Luang Por Kinaree released his own first edition coin with his own image in the year 2519 BE. This series of amulets were fashioned in the same shape, but with the image of Luang Phu Mun Puritatto, blessed by Lineage Master, and Abbot of Wat Gantasilawas, Luang Por Kinaree Jantiyo, in Grand Buddha Abhisekha ceremony. The ceremony was held directly at Wat Gandtasilawas in Nakorn Phanom, with a host of other great Tudong Masters of the Luang Phu Mun Thai Forest Tradition.

The amulet has the Kata ‘namo Wmudtaanang Namo Wimudtiyaa’ on the rear face below the almsbowl, the Kata of LP Mun, representing the heart of the Tudong Kammathana Practice. The amulet is forged from Nuea Tong Daeng Sacred Copper Brazen Alloy, and was blessed on the 13th April 2520 BE after Traimas three month nightly empowerments at the temple beforehand. The amulet has the words ‘Puritadto’ on the front of the base of the amulet, with Luang Phu Mun seated in meditation above.


The amulets were released in the year 2513-2514 BE in a very special Buddha Abhiseka, at the temple of Wat Gantasilaram, with a large number of some of the greatest Guru Masters of the time present to empower, from the lineage of Luang Phu Mun

Ajarn Mun Bhuridatta Thera (Thai: มั่น ภูริทตฺโต, rtgs: Ajarn Mun Phurithatto; Lao: ຫຼວງປູ່ມັ່ນ ພູຣິທັຕໂຕ), 1870–1949, was a Thai bhikkhu of Lao descent who is credited, along with his mentor, Ajarn Sao Kantasīlo, with establishing the Thai Forest Tradition or “Kammaṭṭhāna tradition” that subsequently spread throughout Thailand and to several countries abroad. Ajarn Mun was born in Baan Kham Bong, a farming village in Ubon Ratchathani Province, Isan.
Ordained as a monk in 1893, he spent the remainder of his life wandering through Thailand, Burma, and Laos, dwelling for the most part in the forest, engaged in the practice of meditation. He attracted an enormous following of students and, together with his teacher, Sao Kantasīlo (1861–1941), established the Thai Forest Tradition (the kammaṭṭhāna tradition) that subsequently spread throughout Thailand and to several countries abroad. He died at Wat Suddhavasa, Sakon Nakhon Province.

We would like to share a passage written by Luang Por Thanissaro Bhikkhu (Ajarn Geoffrey de-Graaf), who wrote a most explanatory essay of the role of the Great Ajarn Mun in the revival of the true Buddhist Practice and the Rise of the Thai Tudong Kammathana Forest tradition;

Throughout its history, Buddhism has worked as a civilizing force. Its teachings on karma, for instance — the principle that all intentional actions have consequences — have taught morality and compassion to many societies. But on a deeper level, Buddhism has always straddled the line between civilization and wilderness. The Buddha himself gained Awakening in a forest, gave his first sermon in a forest, and passed away in a forest.

The qualities of mind he needed in order to survive physically and mentally as he went, unarmed, into the wilds, were key to his discovery of the Dhamma. They included resilience, resolve, and alertness; self-honesty and circumspection; steadfastness in the face of loneliness; courage and ingenuity in the face of external dangers; compassion and respect for the other inhabitants of the forest.

These qualities formed the “home culture” of the Dhamma.
Periodically, as Buddhism spread and adapted to different societies, some practitioners felt that the original message of the Dhamma had become diluted. So they returned to the wilderness in order to revive its home culture. Many wilderness traditions are still alive today, especially in the Theravada countries of Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia. There, mendicant ascetic monks continue to wander through the remaining rainforests, in search of Awakening in the same environment where the Buddha found Awakening himself.

Among these wilderness traditions, the one that has attracted the largest number of Western students, and is beginning to take root in the West, is the Kammatthana (Meditation) Forest tradition of Thailand.

The Kammatthana tradition was founded by Ajarn Mun Bhuridatto in the early decades of this century. Ajarn Mun’s mode of practice was solitary and strict. He followed the Vinaya (monastic discipline) faithfully, and also observed many of what are known as the thirteen classic dhutanga (ascetic) practices, such as living off almsfood, wearing robes made of cast-off rags, dwelling in the forest, eating only one meal a day.

Searching out secluded places in the wilds of Thailand and Laos, he avoided the responsibilities of settled monastic life and spent long hours of the day and night in meditation. In spite of his reclusive nature, he attracted a large following of students willing to put up with the hardships of forest life in order to study with him.
He also had his detractors, who accused him of not following traditional Thai Buddhist customs. He usually responded by saying that he wasn’t interested in bending to the customs of any particular society — as they were, by definition, the customs of people with greed, anger, and delusion in their minds. He was more interested in finding and following the Dhamma’s home culture, or what he called the customs of the noble ones: the practices that had enabled the Buddha and his disciples to achieve Awakening in the first place.

This phrase — the customs of the noble ones — comes from an incident in the Buddha’s life: not long after his Awakening, he returned to his home town in order to teach the Dhamma to the family he had left six years earlier. After spending the night in a forest, he went for alms in town at daybreak. His father the king learned of this and immediately went to upbraid him. “This is shameful,” the king said. “No one in the lineage of our family has ever gone begging. It’s against our family customs.”
“Your majesty,” the Buddha replied, “I now belong, not to the lineage of my family, but to the lineage of the noble ones. Theirs are the customs I follow.” Ajarn Mun devoted many years of his life to tracking those customs down. Born in 1870, the son of rice farmers in the northeastern province of Ubon, he was ordained as a monk in the provincial capital in 1892. At the time of his ordination, there were two broad types of Buddhism available in Thailand; Maha Nikkaya and the Dhammayut Movements.

The first can be called Customary Buddhism — the mores and rites handed down over the centuries from teacher to teacher with little, if any, reference to the Pali canon. For the most part, these customs taught monks to live a sedentary life in the village monastery, serving the local villagers as doctors or fortune tellers. Monastic discipline tended to be loose. Occasionally, monks would go on a pilgrimage they called “dhutanga” which bore little resemblance to the classic dhutanga practices. Instead, it was more an undisciplined escape valve for the pressures of sedentary life. Moreover, monks and lay people practiced forms of meditation that deviated from the path of tranquillity and insight outlined in the Pali canon. Their practices, called vichaa aakhom, or incantation knowledge, involved initiations and invocations used for shamanistic purposes, such as protective charms and magical powers. They rarely mentioned nirvana except as an entity to be invoked for shamanic rites. The second type of Buddhism available at the time, was Reform Buddhism, based on the Pali canon and begun in the 1820’s by Prince Mongkut, who later became King Rama IV (and still later was portrayed in the musical The King and I).

Prince Mongkut was ordained as a monk for twenty-seven years before ascending the throne. After studying the canon during his early years as a monk, he grew discouraged by the level of practice he saw around him in Thai monasteries. So he reordained among the Mons — an ethnic group that straddled the Thai-Burmese border and occupied a few villages across the river from Bangkok — and studied Vinaya and the classic dhutanga practices under the guidance of a Mon teacher. Later, his brother, King Rama III, complained that it was disgraceful for member of the royal family to join an ethnic minority, and so built a monastery for the Prince-Monk on the Bangkok side of the river. There, Mongkut attracted a small but strong following of like-minded monks and lay supporters, and in this way the Dhammayut (lit., In Accordance with the Dhamma) movement was born.

In its early years, the Dhammayut movement was an informal grouping devoted to Pali studies, focusing on Vinaya, the classic dhutanga practices, a rationalist interpretation of the Dhamma, and the revival of meditation techniques taught in the Pali canon, such as recollection of the Buddha and mindfulness of the body. None of the movement’s members, however, could prove that the teachings of the Pali canon actually led to enlightenment. Mongkut himself was convinced that the path to nirvana was no longer open, but he felt that a great deal of merit could be made by reviving at least the outward forms of the earliest Buddhist traditions. Formally taking a bodhisattva vow, he dedicated the merit of his efforts to future Buddhahood. Many of his students also took vows, hoping to become disciples of that future Buddha.

Upon disrobing and ascending the throne after his brother’s death in 1851, Rama IV was in a position to impose his reforms on the rest of the Thai Sangha, but chose not to. Instead, he quietly sponsored the building of new Dhammayut centers in the capital and the provinces, which was how — by the time of Ajarn Mun — there came to be a handful of Dhammayut monasteries in Ubon.
Ajarn Mun felt that Customary Buddhism had little to offer and so he joined the Dhammayut order, taking a student of Prince Mongkut as his preceptor. Unlike many who joined the order at the time, he wasn’t interested in the social advancement that would come with academic study and ecclesiastical appointments. Instead, his life on the farm had impressed on him the sufferings inherent in the cycle of life and death, and his single aim was to find a way out of the cycle. As a result, he soon left the scholarly environment of his preceptor’s temple and went to live with a teacher named Ajarn Sao Kantasilo (1861-1941) in a small meditation monastery on the outskirts of town.

Ajarn Sao was unusual in the Dhammayut order in that he had no scholarly interests but was devoted to the practice of meditation. He trained Ajarn Mun in strict discipline and canonical meditation practices, set in the context of the dangers and solitude of the wilderness. He could not guarantee that this practice would lead to the noble attainments, but he believed that it headed in the right direction.
After wandering for several years with Ajarn Sao, Ajarn Mun set off on his own in search of a teacher who could show him for sure the way to the noble attainments. His search took nearly two decades and involved countless hardships as he trekked through the jungles of Laos, central Thailand, and Burma, but he never found the teach
er he sought.

Gradually he realized that he would have to follow the Buddha’s example and take the wilderness itself as his teacher, not simply to conform to the ways of nature — for nature is samsara itself — but to break through to truths transcending them entirely. If he wanted to find the way beyond aging, illness, and death, he would have to learn the lessons of an environment where aging, illness, and death are thrown into sharp relief. At the same time, his encounters with other monks in the forest convinced him that learning the lessons of the wilderness involved more than just mastering the skills of physical survival.

 

He would also have to develop the acuity not to be misled by dead-end sidetracks in his meditation. So, with a strong sense of the immensity of his task, he returned to a mountainous region in central Thailand and settled alone in a cave.
In the long course of his wilderness training, Ajarn Mun learned that — contrary to Reform and Customary beliefs — the path to nirvana was not closed. The true Dhamma was to be found not in old customs or texts but in the well-trained heart and mind. The texts were pointers for training, nothing more or less. The rules of the Vinaya, instead of simply being external customs, played an important role in physical and mental survival. As for the Dhamma texts, practice was not just a matter of confirming what they said. Reading and thinking about the texts could not give an adequate understanding of what they meant — and did not count as showing them true respect. True respect for the texts meant taking them as a challenge: putting their teachings seriously to the test to see if, in fact, they are true. In the course of testing the teachings, the mind would come to many unexpected realizations that were not contained in the texts. These in turn had to be put to the test as well, so that one learned gradually by trial and error to the point of an actual noble attainment. Only then, Ajarn Mun would say, did one understand the Dhamma.

 

This attitude toward the Dhamma parallels what ancient cultures called “warrior knowledge” — the knowledge that comes from developing skills in difficult situations — as opposed to the “scribe knowledge” that people sitting in relative security and ease can write down in words. Of course, warriors need to use words in their training, but they view a text as authoritative only if its teachings are borne out in practice. The Canon itself encourages this attitude when it quotes the Buddha as teaching his aunt, “As for the teachings of which you may know, ‘These teachings lead to dispassion, not to passion; to being unfettered, not to being fettered; to divesting, not to accumulating; to modesty, not to self-aggrandizement; to contentment, not to discontent; to seclusion, not to entanglement; to aroused persistence, not to laziness; to being unburdensome, not to being burdensome’: You may definitely hold, ‘This is the Dhamma, this is the Vinaya, this is the Teacher’s instruction.'”
Thus the ultimate authority in judging a teaching is not whether the teaching can be found in a text. It lies in each person’s relentless honesty in putting the Dhamma to the test and carefully monitoring the results.
When Ajarn Mun had reached the point where he could guarantee that the path to the noble attainments was still open, he returned to the northeast to inform Ajarn Sao and then to continue wandering.

 

Gradually he began to attract a grassroots following. People who met him were impressed by his demeanor and teachings, which were unlike those of any other monks they had known. They believed that he embodied the Dhamma and Vinaya in everything he did and said. As a teacher, he took a warrior’s approach to training his students. Instead of simply imparting verbal knowledge, he put them into situations where they would have to develop the qualities of mind and character needed in surviving the battle with their own defilements. Instead of teaching a single meditation technique, he taught them a full panoply of skills — as one student said, “Everything from washing spittoons on up” — and then sent them into the wilds.
It was after Ajarn Mun’s return to the northeast that a third type of Buddhism emanating from Bangkok — State Buddhism — began to impinge on his life. In an effort to present a united front in the face of imperialist threats from Britain and France, Rama V (1868-1910) wanted to move the country from a loose feudal system to a centralized nation-state. As part of his program, he and his brothers — one of whom was ordained as a monk — enacted religious reforms to prevent the encroachment of Christian missionaries. Having received their education from British tutors, they created a new monastic curriculum that subjected the Dhamma and Vinaya to Victorian notions of reason and utility.

 

Their new version of the Vinaya, for instance, was a compromise between Customary and Reform Buddhism designed to counter Christian attacks that monks were unreliable and lazy. Monks were instructed to give up their wanderings, settle in established monasteries, and accept the new state curriculum. Because the Dhammayut monks were the best educated in Thailand at the time — and had the closest connections to the royal family — they were enlisted to do advance work for the government in outlying regions.
In 1928, a Dhammayut authority unsympathetic to meditation and forest wanderers took charge of religious affairs in the northeast. Trying to domesticate Ajarn Mun’s following, he ordered them to establish monasteries and help propagate the government’s program. Ajarn Mun and a handful of his students left for the north, where they were still free to roam. In the early 1930’s, Ajarn Mun was appointed the abbot of an important monastery in the city of Chieng Mai, but fled the place before dawn of the following day.

He returned to settle in the northeast only in the very last years of his life, after the local ecclesiastical authorities had grown more favorably disposed to his way of practice. He maintained many of his dhutanga practices up to his death in 1949.
It wasn’t until the 1950’s that the movement he founded gained acceptance in Bangkok, and only in the 1970’s did it come into prominence on a nationwide level. This coincided with a widespread loss of confidence in state monks, many of whom were little more than bureaucrats in robes. As a result, Kammatthana monks came to represent, in the eyes of many monastics and lay people, a solid and reliable expression of the Dhamma in a world of fast and furious modernization.
Buddhist history has shown that wilderness traditions go through a very quick life cycle.

 

As one loses its momentum, another often grows up in its place. But with the wholesale destruction of Thailand’s forests in the last few decades, the Kammatthana tradition may be the last great forest tradition that Thailand will produce. Fortunately, we in the West have learned of it in time to gather lessons that will be help in cultivating the customs of the noble ones on Western soil and establishing authentic wilderness traditions of our own.
Perhaps the most important of those lessons concerns the role that the wilderness plays in testing and correcting trends that develop among Buddhists in cities and towns. The story of the Kammatthana tradition gives lie to the facile notion that Buddhism has survived simply by adapting to its host culture. The survival of Buddhism and the survival of the Dhamma are two different things. People like Ajarn Mun — willing to make whatever sacrifices are needed to discover and practice the Dhamma on its own terms — are the ones who have kept the Dhamma alive.

Of course, people have always been free to engage in Buddhist traditions in whatever way they like, but those who have benefited most from that engagement are those who, instead of reshaping Buddhism to fit their preferences, reshape themselves to fit in with the customs and traditions of the noble ones. To find these customs isn’t easy, given the bewildering variety of traditions that Buddhists have spawned over the centuries. To test them, each individual is thrown back on his or her own powers of relentless honesty, integrity, and discernment.

There are no easy guarantees. And perhaps this fact in itself is a measure of the Dhamma’s true worth. Only people of real integrity can truly comprehend it. As Ajarn Lee, one of Ajarn Mun’s students, once said, “If a person isn’t true to the Buddha’s teachings, the Buddha’s teachings won’t be true to that person — and that person won’t be able to know what the Buddha’s true teachings are”.

Luang Por Heng

Luang Por Heng, of Wat Khao Din, was born in Ban Maha Po, Nakorn Sawan, as the son of Mr Sangkh, and Mrs. Biam. he was given the name ‘Heng’ which is an auspicious word, because of the meaning in Chinese (and Thai Colloquial), being ‘Good Luck’, or ‘Good Fortune’.

Luang Por Heng Wat Khao Din

Even as a child, he was always showing Mercy and Compassion to animals, and liked to do good deeds to alleviate their suffering. It was sometimes even a problem, when his Father sent him to watch over the farm fields. The birds would come to steal the rice, but the young Heng would not chase them away or shoot at them, because he considered it an act of Generosity to the Birds, to let them eat. The young boy Heng loved to educate himself, and would often travel to see Luang Por Tap at Wat Maha Po temple, to learn various Wicha with him, including the Wicha Paet Boran Traditional Medicine, Wicha Akom, and the Wicha Kochasart.

The Kocha Sastra (Kochasart), is an ancient Wicha found in the Wicha Dtrai Taep of the Brahman Hindu Faith. The Wicha Kochasart is related to Elephant Magic, and is Used for Protecting the Kingdom. The Dtamra is found to be split into two major Kampira Grimoires, as separate categories;

1. Dtamra Kochalaks – which deals with Invocation of the Tendencies and Character Powers of the Elephant, both the good and the bad parts, the merciful and the destructive.

2. Dtamra Kocha Gam – this Dtamra deals with Kata Waetmont Incantations to invoke various powers or magical effects, for various purposes, such as catching elephant, controlling an elephant, healing of ailments, or banishing evil curses and forest spirits, in order to protect elephants.


The Wicha of the Dtamra Kochasart tells of the Chang Mongkol which was created from the lotus which rose from the navel of Pra Narai Vishnu Avatar, when he gave birth to the Golden Kumarn, which he gave to Shiva at the beginning of Time. The elephant was split into four families of Magical Elephants, each with its own special qualities.

  1. The first elephant was made by the God Brahma, and was endowed with the power to bring success and prosperity and Glorious Achievements to the Nation and its People.
  2. The second elephant family was made by the God Shiva, and was endowed with the power to bring great Achievements of Powerful Status and Influence to the Kingdom or Nation, and fill its Coffers with Wealth.
  3. The third elephant was made by the God Vishnu himself, and was endowed with the power to bring Victory against all Enemies and Opponents, and will cause the Rains to fall at the proper time and season, without drought or flooding, and the harvest to be plentiful and ripe.
  4. The fourth elephant was made by the God of Fire, Agni, which was endowed with the Power to bring Plentiful Resources to the Nation, and Protect the Land and its Ruler from all forms of danger and disasters.

This was just one of the many powerful Wicha which Luang Por Heng learned to Master from a young age under his first Kroo Ba Ajarn long before he Ordained. Once the young boy Heng reached the age of 12 years old, his parents took him to be ordained as a Samanera Novice Monk at Wat Maha Po, where he remained and intensified his study and practice as an Ordained member of the Buddhist Sangha. After 4 years, he disrobed again, to help his parents on the farm. When he came of age, he reordained as a fully fledged Bhikkhu in the year 2423, once more at the temple of Wat Maha Po. Pra Kroo Gim, the abbot, was his Upachaya Ordaining Officer.

 


After his ordination, he studied the Dhamma Vinaya Buddhist Canon, Horasart (Astrology), and Wityakom (Occult Sciences), with ever increasing fervency, under the supervision of Luang Por Gim as Kroo Ba Ajarn. Wat Maha Po (Dtai) had one of the largest Bibliotheques of Kampira (Grimoires of Sorcery), and was an excellent place for Luang Por Heng to expand and develop his knowledge in Wityakom Occult Sciences. In addition, the Uposatha Shrineroom was imbued with Maha Ud, perfect for empowerment of amulets and talismans, and was very sacred, over 300 years Old. Luang Por Heng found himself in the perfect environment for developing his now Adept Skills.

 

Wat Maha Po Dtai lay on the banks of the rive Mae Ping, which meant that many Tudong Forest monks would pass by on their travels, to stay and practice (and teach their secrets). And so Luang Por Heng was able to access and receive Wicha from a large number of great Tudong Monks over the years, until one day, he decided to go on Tudong himself.

 

Luang Por Heng wandered in solitary through the wilderness, forests and caves of Thailand, Burma, Laos and Cambodia many times repeatedly over many years. He slept in the forest, the caves, the delapidated cemeteries, and meditated to develop his resilience of mind, and the powers which accompany such resilience developed their strength and intensity.

 

His mastery of the many Animist Wicha such as the Kochasart, allowed him to understand and intuit the true nature of animals, and he became able to call the spirits of dead animals to enter into carved or molded effigies, and inhabit them with their powers.

Below; Hand Written Spells in Khom Agkhara are visibly inscribed on the base of the Paya Kochasri Amulet

 

During his years of diligent Tudong Practice in the deep Jungles, he learned about the Magical foces within ivory, imbued with the four Magical Properties of the Dtamra Kochasart, and the Chang Mongkol of the Gods Brahma, Shiva, Vishnu and Agni. he mastered the knowledge through intuition and meditation, that this Elephant Magic within the Ivory has two branches of influence;

  1. Nga Gam Jad is the Ivory from a Bull Elephant who was in Mating Season Anger and attacked a tree breaking his tusk on the tree
  2. Nga Gam Jaay is ivory from an elephant who fought with another Bull for the leadership of the troupe, and broke his Tusk in the fight, in the depths of the Jungle.

Luang Por Heng would always collect and gather all the Magical ivory he found in the forests and Jungles during his years of Tudong, which had fallen from the two scenarios of Elephants in Rage, to use their powerful substance later, to shape into animist charms and talismans. Mostly his amulets are carved into the form of Suea (Tigers) Kochasri (elephant Head Lion Himapant Animal), Hmuu Pha (Wild Boar), and his own image. A few other forms are also found on rare occasions.

Luang Por Heng passed away in 2485 at the age of 83, after 63 years in the Ordained Sangha, leaving his pantheon of Krueang Rang for us, the Devotees and Aficionados, to appreciate, and be protected and prosper through their blessings.

Luang Por Heng possessed a special ability for Wicha using his magical ivory, and bone collected in the forests, and his immensely advanced and long trajectory in Buddhist Sorcery, making his amulets and talismans amongst the most highly sort after in this Genre. It is not possible to speak of ivory tiger amulets without mention of Luang Por Heng, who stands at the pinnacle of the Genre, along with the Great Luang Por Parn, Luang Por Derm, Luang Por Say and Luang Por Nok. His carved Ivory amulets are the most highly sought after, and considered to be powerful Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad Protective amulets, with added Metta Mahaniyom, Maha Pokasap, and Maha Amnaj (commanding power and influence).

Luang Por Sud was born in the year 2445 BE on the 7th of May. he ordained into the Sangha at the age of 16 as a Samanera Novice Monk. When he moved after becoming a fully fledged Bhikkhu to Samut Sakorn and stayed at Wat Ka Long, where he eventually became the Abbot through his long term diligence and meritorious acts.

He became famous for his Wicha Yant Look Takror Wicker ball Yantra, which he had Mastered through the use of Khmer Sorcery methods. Luang Por Sud made many different kinds of amulets, but it is perhaps the Takrut, and his Look Takror Wicha amulets (including the Pha Yant Takror) which are his most revered and famous for their Kong Grapan Chadtri and Klaew Klaad powers.

 

Luang Por Sud became even more famous after his death in the year of his cremation in 2545 BE, when his body would not burn, and seemed impermeable to fire. So the temple committee was forced to give up trying to cremate him, and placed his remains in a glass coffinThe Takrut contains a vast compendium of blessings, ranging from protection to wealthy fortunes, with strong leanings towards Klaew Klaad and Kong Grapan Chadtri beng the most prominent form of magic present. Luang Por Sud made Takrut throughout his lifetime as a Sorceror Monk.

Luang Por Sud, and his Amulets, and His famous Yant Takror and Takror Balls are amongst the Popular ‘Niyom’ Class of Preferred Guru Masters, of a High Class but with a still affordable pricetag, despite their ever increasing rarity and difficulty to encounter when seeking an item from this Master.

The Takrut of Luang Por Sud is said to have been the favor of the Great Highwaymen and Robbers, who used the Takrut, Pha Yant, and Look Hwaay Takror of this great Master to Protect themselves.

 

The famous Look Takror Wicker Ball of Luang Por Sud is the subject of a Legendary story that is said to have helped a Thief Escape hundreds of Police, as he was surrounded, and slip through their hands with the power of the Magic Amulet assisting.

Luang Por Sud of Wat Ka Long

Luang Por Sud was the continuation of and the disciple in Magic of the Great Luang Por Rung (Wat Ta Graber) and Luang Phu Mao (Wat Klang Panom Prai). A great mark of respect was given to Luang Por Sud by the great Luang Por Rung, who asked Luang Por Sud to come and assist in the empowerment of Luang Por Rung’s first edition Coin Amulet.

 

 

Luang Por Sud passed away on the 14th of August 2526 BE, and it was then that his already great fame became legendary around the country, as the miracle of his Cremation Ceremony occurred before the eyes of thousands of Devotees

 

The event fulfilled the Prophecy which had happened in the Dream of his first apprentice, Luang Por Chalong, where Luang Por Sud had appeared and told Luang Por Chalong that it would not be possible to light the Funeral Pyre, and that Luang Por Sud would do it himself, but that his bones would remain, for they could not be burned. This is a strange thing, because this kind of miracle also happened with the Arahant Saributra in the times of the Buddha, and it is said that the bones of Saributra cannnot be burned until the Future Buddha Maitreya comes, who shall burn them with Kasina Fire energy.

Luang Phu Bun was a close friend and accomplice in Wicha with the Great Somdej Pra Sangkarach (Pae) of Wat Sutat fame, whose amulets belong to the priceless treasures category and are only to be found in the possession of wealthy, and high ranking persons of state importance, and a few lucky extreme collectors and devotees who have kept them throughout the generations, or inherited them as heirlooms from their family members. Almost anybody who owns such an amulet will be hard pressed to part with it in any circumstances.

The amulet can be encased in Waterproof Transparent Acrylic Casing, Steel Capped, or Gold Capped Transparent Tube Casing, or can be strapped to a waist cord if you prefer to wear the amulet touching your skin.

 

Luang Phu Bun was extremely famed for his Wicha of making Ya Wasana Jinda Manee. This Wicha was developed by Luang Phu from an Ancient Teaching through his Kroo Ba Ajarn, and has since his making the Muan Sarn famously powerful, has been inherited as a Wicha of Muan Sarn powder making for the amulets of the Wat Klang Bang Gaew lineage throughout the ages from Luang Phu Bun, to Luang Por Perm, to Pra Ajarn Bai, to Luang Phu Juea, and now the present holder of Luang Phu’s now ancient Wicha, Luang Por Kong (Sanya) at Wat Klang Bang Gaew.

The Bia Gae of Luang Phu Bun is considered the most famous and difficult to find of all Bia Gae that are of Master Class status. All following Masters of Luang Phu Bun’s temple have become famous Bia Gae Masters, and continue to rise in procession in line and following after those now immensely unaffordable Bia Gae from Luang Phu Bun. The famous Pong Ya Wasana Jinda Manee, and Pong Khamin Sek Muan Sarn Powders of Luang Phu Bun (also known as ‘Pra Ya Horm’), carry legendary status for their immensely powerful magical properties. These are two very Sacred Powders within the Dtamra, with Pong Khamin Sek having a pungent aroma, with Powers of Protection and Wealth Increase, and the legendary Pong Ya Wasana Jinda Manee having an aromatic Sacred Powder, which uses of course the famous ‘Ya Wasana (‘Wasana’ meaning Lucky Fortunes).

Tiger Takrut LP Bun

Pong Ya Wasana, and Pong Khamin Sek are the most famous Muan Sarn powders of Luang Phu Bun, and have become his Legendary ‘Dtamra’ (Traditonal Legend of Inheritance Wicha). For the sake of lineage magic preservation, and continued equal respect to all following lineage masters of Wat Klang Bang Gaew, It must be noted, that despite the fame of his world famous predecessors at Wat Klang Bang Gaew, LP Bun, LP Perm, Ajarn Bai, and Lp Juea, the present Wicha Holder LP Kong Sanya of Wat Klang Bang Gaew, now holds a Wicha that has been passed through a long lineage of already Great and Famous Guru Masters. All Masters inherited this Wicha from the Great Kroo Ba Ajarn Luang Phu Bun, and who have all passed away in sequence after their long lives and trajectory.

 

We are thus gazing avidly at an amulet of a True Olden Days Master, who is already 4 -5 generations the predecessor of the current Wicha holder and Sentinel of the Wicha, making his amulets truly worthy of the title ‘Ancient Amulet’.

Lucky Goat Pae Maha Lap Luang Por Am

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

Pae Maha Lap Lucky Goat amulets of LP Am

Pae Maha Lap Lucky Goat and other carved amulets of LP Am

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

Below; Luang Por Am, of  Wat Nong Grabork

Luang Por Am

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

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

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

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

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

The Pra Somdej of Somdej Dto are the number one amulets of all time, be they from Wat Rakang, Wat Bang Khun Prohm,or Wat Gaes Chaiyo. Made in the period between 2411 and 2413 BE, three years before the passing of Somdej Dto himself, and buried in the Stupa until their distribution in 2500 BE

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.

Carved Tooth Tiger Amulet LP Parn Wat Bang Hia (Wat Bang Bor)

Khiaw Gae Suea Jarn Mer Sacred Carved Tiger Amulet made from tooth, with hand inscription by the Great Luang Por Parn of Wat Klong Dan Previously ‘Wat Bang Hia’) – Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Amnaj Talismanic Amulet of Master Class Status.

The amulet has a beautiful ochre Patina on the surface from aging through the many decades of time that have passed, and thorugh contact with the skin of devotees, and is a most pristine example of a suea Luang Por Parn.

Suea Gae Luang Por Parn Wat Bang Hia

Suea Gae Luang Por Parn Wat Bang Hia

Luang Por Parn is arguably the number one Master Gaeji Ajarn of all Living Memory when it comes to Wicha Khiaw Suea. Many Masters hold a high status for carved Khiaw Suea, but nobody in living memory has attained the same status as Luang Por Parn, except his famous apprentice, Luang Por Nok, of Wat Sangkasi.

 

Khiaw Suea are full of Maha Amnaj, Kong Grapan Chadtri and Metta Mahaniyom-Maha Sanaeh Magick, and possess Anti Black Magick Forces in their very nature. An excellent Status Increase Talisman to Impose your Superiority and Status and Rank over others, and to protect you from deadly Dangers and Weaponry, as well as to Increase Seductive Charm and Chances of Promotion.

The temple of Wat Kong Dan (Wat Bang Hia), is of course a World famous Historical Temple of Monumental Status in the Amulet Scene for the fact that this was the temple of Luang Por Parn, Master Wicha holder of making famous Tiger Tooth and Carved Tiger amulets, whose amulets are now of the ‘Maha Sethee’ Master Class, highly favored and collected by the wealthy collector, which has caused these amulets to become amongst the most expensive of their genre.

The tiger teeth of Luang Por Parn are perhaps the most sought after and rare of all Tiger Tooth amulets even more so than those of his predecessor Luang Por Ruean (also of Wat Bang Hia), especially those which are of the ‘Suea Kroeng’ tiger (large male tiger). Some circles of collectors may charge as much as 50,000$ for one, as can be seen in the below news article from the newspaper ‘Kom Chad Leuk’.

However, we wish to dispose of such exaggerated prices, which are indeed seen to be perpetuated, and certain marketplaces do continue to declare these prices, and get them from rich millionaires. But we do not pertain to such practices of price manipulation at such exaggerated levels, and maintain a realistic approach based on our ability to discover and obtain such items of authenticity at reasonable affordable prices.

Luang Por Parn – Wat bang Hia (Wat bang Bor)

Such prices are manipulated and highly exaggerated, despite their continued success in maintaining the myth of mega millionaire price tags. A tiger tooth from Luang Por Parn is indeed expensive, as are all tiger teeth from olden days masters, but not as expensive as such circles of aficionados like to insinuate.

Many people think that Luang Por Parn of Wat Klong Dan is a different Master to the Luang Por Parn of Wat bang Hia, but this is a Myth, that is perpetuated by people’s ignorance of the fact, that wat bang Hia, in Bang Bor, Samut Prakarn Province, is a different temple to the temple of Wat Klong Dan. The truth is however, that the word ‘Hia’ which means both ‘monitor lizard’ (which is the true reason for the temple being named Wat Bang Hia, due to a lot of Monitor Lizards being around in those days), also is a swear word, meaning ‘very bad person’. Because the name of the temple of Wat Bang Hia was seen as Inauspicous to some people’s ears, it was changed to ‘Wat Klong Dan’

This is why much confusion has occurred with those who have not studied the Dtamra of Luang Por Parn and related Masters of this Temple, may believe there are two Masters famous for Tiger Teeth both named Luang Por Parn, tow Masters famous for tiger teeth named Luang Por Say, for they are both sometimes stated to be of ‘Wat Bang Hia, and sometimes as coming from ‘Wat Klong Dan’

Luang Por Parn was one of the Great Master Guru Monks of his Era (2368 – 2543 BE), and the originator of the Wicha for Tiger Amulet empowerment of this Lineage, using the Wicha of Wat Bang Hia.

Wat Bang Hia is of course a World famous Historical Temple of Monumental Status in the Amulet Scene for the fact that this was the temple of Luang Por Parn, Master Wicha holder of making famous Tiger Tooth and Carved Tiger amulets, whose amulets are now of the ‘Maha Sethee’ Millionaire master Class.

It was the Great Luang Por Parn who was the Mentor and Teacher in Wicha to Luang Por Nok of Wat Sangkasi, who is a Classic Olden Days Master of Legendary Status in his own right, and whose Tiger Teeth Talismans also carry immense Serm Baramee and Maha Amnaj Power.

Luang Por Nok practiced the Mastery of Wicha Saiyasart Buddha Sastra Occult magic under Luang Por Parn himself. He fast became Luang Por’s most elite apprentice for his fast wittedness, ease of learning and good memory.

Because of this he recieved the teachings and attained Mastery of the methods of Luang Por Parn in a very short space of time, and was soon considered to have a level of Mastery and Understanding that Thai people call ‘Dtaek Chan’, which means to Master a subject to the poin where one excels above all other practitioners.

Luang Por Nok often followed Luang Por Parn out into the forest when he would wander on Tudong Practice. This is where Luang Por Parn revealed and taught the Master Wicha of the ‘Khiaw Suea’ Tiger tooth amulet. The Wicha of Luang Por Nok became so powerful, because he was receiving Wicha from perhaps the greatest Master in Living Memory for Tiger Tooth Talismans.

One can say that Khiaw Suea from Luang Por Parn and from his Apprentice, the Great Luang Por Nok, can be considered the top preferred Masters for this kind of Talismanic Charm. They are both immensely rare, and most often completely beyond availability. We pride ourself in our diligent quest to search far and wide to find the remaining exhibits around the country, to present them for your admiration and study, and to place some available to those who wish to possess one.

Luckily we are patient and vigilant, and try our best to seek both beautiful, sacred and authentic example that are also affordable. It can not happen very often, for good things are hard to find, and far and few between. The Powers of the Tiger Tooth are reputably said to possess Kong Grapan Chadtri, Klaew Klaad, and Maha Amnaj (commanding power and influence), as well as powerful Maha Sanaeh attraction power and Metta Mahaniyom Mercy Charm.

The hand inscription is inimitably inscribed in the handwriting of Luang Por Say, and hence easily recognizable for its style of Agkhara lettering, noticeabe for its ‘lightning flash’ like Agkhara inscription, which is ubiquitously present with tiger teeth of Luang Por Parn.

The tooth can be encased if desired in waterproof casing for attachment as a pendant. One could say that this exhibit is an extremely pristine and beautiful example of Khiaw Suea Kroeng, with most beautiful features, and highly visible inscription, revealing the authentic evidence of the hand of a preferred artisan of the great master Luang Por Parn

An extremely rare and powerful Maha Amnaj Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Pokasap ‘Krueang Rang’ Talismanic Animist Charm Amulet from the great Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai in Rayong. The Suea Gae is hand carved from the jawbone of a ‘Chang Name’ (Water Elephant) Walrus. The amulet is intended for Kong Grapan Chadtri Invincibility, Metta Maha Niyom Mercy Charm, Klaew Klaad Evasion of Enemies, Maha Amnaj Commanding Power, and Serm Yos Status Increase.

Graam Chang (elephant jawbones) and Graam Chang Nam (walrus jawbones) are seen to be powerful magic according to the ancient Dtamra Saiyawaet of Animist Sorcery, and the Grimoires of Formulas of Powerful Magical Ingredients. The Graam Chang Nam Walrus Jawbone is carved into the shape of a tiger seated in regal poise looking out over his Kingdom, and keeping watch. The Graam Chang Nam can be seen to be ancient and have the typical porosity to its substance as is expected in authentic carvings of Graam Chang Nam amulets.

Graam Chang Nam is mnuch rarer to encounter than Graam Chang elephant jawbone, and it is said that Luang Phu Tim received the piece of Graam Chang in only small quantity, so not many of these amulets were carved in total. Luang Phu Tim was and remains one of the Greatest and most highly famed Guru Masters, right up to the present day, many decades after his passing. His amuletd are eminent members of the top master-class category amulet pantheons of all history, including his famous Rian Guru Monk Coins in many editions, and of course his Pra Khun Phaen and Look Om and other Pra Pong Prai Kumarn amulets, which are the stuff of legend.

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 Kring Chinabanchorn, his Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, and Look Om powder balls.

Takrut Tone Kong Grapan Chadtri Metta Luang Por Yid Wat Nong Jork

Takrut Tone Tong Daeng Sacred Copper Yantra Foil scroll spell with yellow cord wrapping, for Kong Grapan Chadtri and Metta Maha Niyom, early era amulet from Luang Por Yid, of Wat Nong Jork. The Takrut measures 5 Inches long, weighing 25 Grams. This Takrut has used a long strip of Sacred Copper Yantra foil scroll, and contains a mass of incantations to empower with a large compendium of spells, for Metta Maha Niyom, Kong Grapan Chadtri, Klaew Klaad, Serm Yos, and Maha Lap.

 

Luang Por Yid made a great many amulets in his pantheon, but was most famous for his powerful Palad Khik amulets. Luang Por was famous for being able to chant and empower Palad Khik to the point where they stand up and dance around of their own accord, and has been seen to do this a hundred times or more with devotees witnessing the event.

 

One of Luang Por Yids close devotees, Ajarn Chaiya Am Sam Aang, who assisted him during his years as an ordained monk at the side of Luang Por Yid, and who published the book of Luang Por Yid’s Biography and catalogue of the Dtamra of his amulets, tells that he saw many occurrences of miraculous events as he was resident at Wat Nong Jork assisting Luang Por Yid.

 

He saw Luang Por make the Palad Khik and other Amulets, shake and even jump into the air on their own accord. At that time the only other Monk who was able to perform this show of power was Luang Por Phaew of Wat Tanode Luang, who was famous for having allowed testing of Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri with the shooting of a 11 MM Gun that was shot until the whole magazine was empty, without any damage coming to the wearer of the Palad Khik at all.

 

successfully empowered them with great Kong Grapan Chadtri and Klaew Klaad Evasion Magic Powers. Both Luang Por Phaew and Luang Por Yid’s amulets are hence seen as equally powerful as protective amulets, in addition to the obvious Maha Sanaeh and Maha Lap Powers that are attributed to Palad Khik amulets.

As Ajarn Chaiya was at Wat Nong Jork around 2533 BE, he observed Luang Por Yid constantly with fascination, and great expectant hopes to see some Miraculous behavious. But after around 5 days had passed, he had not yet seen anything unusual and so asked to return back to his temple of residence.

 

Before the day he was to leave, at around 2 a.m. in the morning, hje heard some loud noises coming from Luang Por’s Kuti Hut room, which sounded like a cat catching mice. So he decided he would get up and go have a look, but when he tried to get out of bed, he was frozen paralysed rather like he was being smothered by the ‘Phii Am’. ‘Phii Am’, is an effect where you wake up, and cannot move and are completely paralysed, which Thai people blame on a kind of ghost that smothers you by sitting on top of you in the bed).

So Ajarn Chaiya then remained frozen in the same position until morning time, after which he was able to move, and got up to go and ask the other monks in the temple about his experience. They then told him that the previous evening was when Luang Por Yid was empowering amulets, and that this was why he had been so affected by strange power of paralysis.

Ajarn Chaiya says that it sounds incredible to believe when one hears that a Palad Khik can jump around of its own accord in the hand, and that one might think that it is a fictional story, and that Luang Por was using a trick or technique with is hand. But Ajarn Chaiya tells that the Palad Khik wold even still jump around when placed on the ‘Pan Kroo’ tray that was placed at a distance from Luang Por Yid.

Ajarn Chaiya says that he wished there had been mobile phones with cameras in those days as we have now, for he would have filmed it to show the proof. He says that if that had been possible, that Luang Por Yid would now be world news for the amazing ability.

 

Luang Por Yid’s ability is one which many other supposed Masters have tried to emulate but were not able to perform this effect from afar without touching the Palad Khik as Luang Por could do. Luckily, thanks to Ajarn Spencer’s Buddha Magic Project, we have some footage for you to enjoy, and witness the event for yourselves;

Look Om Chan Hmak Mid Era Luang Por Tob

One of the more famous types of ‘Krueang Rang’ talismanic amulets of the Great Luang Por Tob (Wat Chon Daen), is the Look Om Chan Hmak Gesa, Sacred Areca-Betel Nut powder ball with Monks hairs, which was most commonly distributed with a cover wrapped in cord with a cord pendant hoop. Most would be wrapped with plain coloured cord, but some special ones were wrapped in tricoloured cords (red white and blue for the Thai Flag), which is known as ‘Trairong’, or ‘Tong Chart’ (meaning ‘National Flag’).

The olden days folk of Pechaburn are said to have preferred the following three types of amulets of Luang Por Tob above all others;

  1. Look Om Chan Hmak
  2.  See Pheung Metta Balm
  3. Takrut

This is because the folk of olden days noticed the effects of these amulets almost immediately after wearing them, and the effects of the amulet were highly noticeable above any doubt of coincidence.

Look Om Chan Hmak Luang Por Tob (Early Era)

It is said that whoever manages to possess all three of these sacred items, is blessed with extremely powerful blessings and will experience immensely luck and good fortunes.

The Look Om Chan Hmak of Luang Por Tob has many legends of miraculous events with devotees who used the Look Om, such as the story of the great Gangster Suea Kam Mee, who was a feared gunman of Hlom Sak District, who was shot with M16 by the police, and the bullets did not pierce his skin or kill him.

When Suea Kam Mee became old and gray, eventually his Look Om Luang Por Tob fell off (the cord ring broke), and he stopped wearing it. Within a few days of not wearing the Look Om he was shot again by enemies, and killed. Suea kam Mee’s grandson one day decided to open the cord wrapping of Suea Kam Mee’s Look Om to see what was inside, and found it to be made of Chan Hmak Betel Areca Nut with Monks hairs mixed in, with a Takrut inserted within it.

Look Om Chan Hmak Luang Por Tob

Luang Por Tob made Look Om over many years, so the Look Om of Luang Por Tob can be found from various eras. he made them in various ways with various appearances, such as bare powder balls rolled with the hand, others wrapped with cords, and even sometimes molded into the shape of Buddha amulets.

Luang Por Tob would mix his Chan Hmak chewed betel-areca with Nam Mont Holy Prayer Water, and add some monk hairs, and roll the paste up into a ball, and wrap it with various kinds of woven cords, depending on which kind of cords were available to him at the time. He would allow his devotees to help him to bind the Look Om with the cords, resulting in some people wrapping them left-handed, and others wrapping them right handed fashion. Some devotees would wrap a single weave, others double or triple weave, resulting in the Look Om of Luang Por Tob having a a large variation of appearances as far as the cord wrapping is concerned.

But the actual Loom Om when finished had the rule that there had to be a pendant hoop attached, and fully enclosed with cord, with the weave having the appearance of a honeycomb pattern

In the mid and later era of his trajectory, Luang Por Tob began to use See Pheung to coat the Look Om with before wrapping them (and those which were not wrapped too). Some Look Om can be seen visibly to have some See Pheung leaks on the surface of the Look Om, or the cord wrap, which would indicate that the Look Om came from the mid or later era, not the early era where Luang Por did not yet use See Pheung to coat the Look Om with.

Luang Por Tob Wat Chang Phueak (Wat Chon Daen)

Luang Por Tob Wat Chang Phueak (Wat Chon Daen)

The See Pheung he would use would have to be previously empowered before using to coat the Look Om. A Ceremony was made for the See Pheung to be boiled with constant incantations. Luang Por Tob’s apprentices (Luang Por Tong, Pra Giang and Samanera Nid), would assist to collect the residues of the chewed betal-areca and roll them into Look Om, or even into the shape of Buddha amulets.
Luang Por Tob would only perform such a ceremony to make these amulets once every few years, because it was difficult to collect enough Muan Sarn to be able to perform the ceremony properly, and this took a long time to gather enough chewed betel-areca, and the ingredients for the See Pheung

When he would perform these ceremonies, some devotees would sit and wait for them to finish and ask for look om fresh from the ceremony (still not dry), and others would come later to ask for one after they were dried out.

The Look Om were always amongst the most popular amulets with his devotees, because they were small and easy to carry/wear, and because of their undoubtable power.

The Looksit of Luang Por Tob value the Look Om Chan Hmak very highly, because they believe that when Luang Por used to chew the betel-areca nuts with his eyes closed in meditation, that he would enter the Jhanic states of absorption. It is considered to be a fact that true empowerment of amulets is performed by the attainment of arupa jhana (formless state of absorption), and so the Looksit believe that the Look Om of Luang Por Tob were properly and poerfully blessed using the correct and powerful method of empowerment

Whoever was able to visit Luang Por Tob and ask for some of his Chan Hmak chewed betel-areca is considered extremely lucky, because Luang Por Tob would only spit it out if asked, and would otherwise always swallow it all, making the Chan Hmak a rare thing to obtain. His Looksit would sit watching him meditate and wait to ask him for some Chan Hmak, in fear of blinking in case he swallowed it before they could ask.

If Luang Por Tob would chew betel in the night time, he would sometimes spit the betel-areca out onto the cliffside near his hut, and when the sediment had accumulated enough, he would ask his apprentices to collect it and gather for later to make amulets with. This was because the number of devotees who had begun to ask for Look Om had become ten times more than the amount he was able to make during the day, and was ever increasing, so Luang Por had to look for ways to increase the amount of Chan Hmak he was able to make for the devotees.

Look Om Chan Hmak See Pheung Luang Por Tob

Look Om Chan Hmak See Pheung Luang Por Tob

The Look Om became famous over the years because of the large number of miraculous stories of devotees experiencing life saving miracles, with Klaew Klaad and Kong Grapan Chadtri protection involved.

Many people would travel to the temple from far afield to ask for Look Om Chan Hmak,and the number of devotees were ever increasing. So Luang Por decided to find a way to provide more to the people, and ordered his looksit to begin a new admixture that was easier to make larger quantity of, by mixing Betel-Areca with the Bai Plu leaf, the chewing cement (Poon Hmak), and mix with his Ya Chun rolling tobacco and other sacred ingredients, which were then mxed into a larg mound of sacred clay and given to Luang Por Tob on a tray to empower the sacred clay in solo.

The samaneras and other apprentice monks of Luang Por Tob would then take the tray of clay and mix it all together again in a large mortar bowl with the previous trays they had made for Luang Por to empower, and keep repeating the process until they had enough of the clay to make a complete edition with.

Then they took the final admixture and returned it to Luang Por Tob for a second empowerment to ensure the power of the Muan Sarn Clay to be as powerful as possible, They then molded the clay into balls and wrapped them with cord, to make them durable against the weather and wear and tear. Once the Look Om were all made, they were placed on a receptacle and returned once more to Luang Por Tob for a further empowerment session.

Look Om Chan Hmak Thak Chueak Early Era Luang Por Tob

Look Om Chan Hmak Thak Chueak Early Era Luang Por Tob

The Look Om which were not wrapped in cord were taken and dried out in the sun. The apprentices would take the still wet clay and lay them out to dry and wrap them in a piece of cloth and tie it up. This is why some of Luang Por Tob’s Look Om are found wrapped inside a piece of cloth, instead of woven cord.

Some apprentices would take a piece of rattan and place the Look Om inside it, and seal the rattan with some Krang Putsa paste, or some candle wax from sacred candles, or even tree sap. Ther apprentices would roll the Chan Hmak into a tiny ball and cover it in Krang Putsa resinous paste and apply flame to the Krang Putsa to seal it around the Look Om. After some time the Krang Putsa paste ran out, so the apprentices would use Khee Pheung Borisut pure forest beesnest beeswax, which was used for making See Pheung, and heat it to make it malleable, and cover the Look Om with it
They would wrap them in cords, and dip the cord wrapped Look Om in Melted beeswax to seal them up and prevent water or insects from being able to get inside. After this, they then began to distribute the Look Om to devotees, and the rest, is History.
