In the realm of mystical charms and spiritual treasures, there exists a rare and sacred magical charm known as the Ya Sen (Ya Soop). This enchanting muan sarn is sacred tobacco from smoking or chewing, by LP Songk, and used to make amulets, revered by devotees of the esteemed Luang Por Songk. The Ya Soop holds a profound significance in the spiritual realm of Thai Buddhist amulet aficionados. It is a testament to the divine connection between the wearer and Luang Por Songk, a Maha Thera Gaeji Ajarn whose spiritual mastery remains unparalleled.
The Sacred “Ya Soop” Tobacco
Look Om Ya Soop Luang Phu Songk Sacred Tobacco
The Ya Sen, also known as “smoking medicine” or “aromatic medicine,” manifests itself in two distinct forms—a spherical encasement of loose tobacco and as one of Luang Por Songk’s sacred cigar stubs. Within the sphere lies the highly sacred Ya Sen, a spiritual conduit that establishes a profound connection with Luang Por Songk through the practice of Gurunussati. The spherical Waterproof Casing of this exhibit classifies it as belonging to the sacred “Look Om” category. However, it is worth noting that the Ya Sen of Luang Por Songk can also be found in the form of his revered cigars.
The Great Luang Phu Songk was known for his Holy Prayer water and its ability to fend off even the most powerful black magic, and was reputed to be able to take Hnang Kwai buffalo skin (sacred magical substance), and Mitmor knifes into the stomach without any wounds or bleeding, and insert magical objects under the skin of a devotee, just by performing incantations.[/caption]
The Mystical Essence of Spirituality within the Ya Soop
The Ya Soop, or Magic Ya Sen, carries within it the very essence of Luang Por Songk’s spiritual practice and blessings. It possesses a divine potency believed to bring forth luck, protection, and spiritual elevation to those fortunate enough to wear it. The enchantments bestowed upon this sacred tobacco by Luang Por Songk create a powerful aura of positivity, shielding the wearer from negative influences while attracting auspicious energies.
Luang Por Songk’s Divine Influence
Luang Por Songk Chantasaro of Wat Jao Fa Sala Loi was revered not only for his Magic Ya Sen amulets but also for his profound ability to bless and heal through his Holy Prayer Water. His fame as an adept and his popularity as a spiritual guide extended across two regions—the Southern province of Chumphon and the bustling city of Bangkok. Devotees from far and wide flocked to Luang Por Songk’s humble abode, where they encountered a water bowl filled with the sacred Holy Prayer Water. This blessed elixir, infused with the energy of his nightly meditations, possessed extraordinary healing properties.

The life journey of Luang Por Songk Chantasaro was one intertwined with spiritual exploration, meditation, and unwavering service to others. Let us delve into some key milestones that shaped the extraordinary life of this revered master.
Birth and Early Years
Luang Por Songk Chantasaro entered this world on a sacred Tuesday, during the first phase of the sixth month in the Lunar Calendar of the year 2433 BE. Born in Swee Township, nestled amidst the fertile lands where his parents toiled as humble farmers, his path was destined for greatness.
Ordination and Forest Wandering
At the tender age of 18, Luang Por Songk embarked upon the path of enlightenment as a Samanera Novice Monk at Wat Swee. For two years, he immersed himself in the study of Dhamma Vinaya, the profound teachings of Buddhism. However, he temporarily disrobed to assist his family on the farm, a testament to his deep-rooted sense of familial duty.
Yearning to deepen his spiritual practice, at the age of 21, Luang Por Songk returned to Wat Swee seeking permission to re-ordain as a fully fledged Bhikkhu. His soul yearned for solitude, and he embarked on an extensive journey through forests and mountains. Under the guidance of esteemed masters, he delved into the teachings of Buddhism, honing his meditation techniques, and furthering his spiritual growth.
After years of unwavering dedication, rigorous training, and a relentless pursuit of wisdom, Luang Por Songk achieved the esteemed status of Maha Thera Gaeji Ajarn. His profound insights, exceptional healing powers, and extraordinary psychic abilities earned him the unwavering reverence of the monastic community and the general public alike.
Establishing Wat Jao Fa Sala Loi
Inspired by his spiritual calling, Luang Por Songk established Wat Jao Fa Sala Loi—a sanctuary of peace nestled amidst the serene beauty of Chumphon. This sacred abode became a beacon of hope for spiritual seekers, who sought solace, guidance, and the blessings bestowed by the enlightened master.
Legacy and Passing
Luang Por Songk’s physical presence may have transcended to the realm of eternal bliss in the year 2552 BE, but his spiritual legacy lives on, inspiring and uplifting the lives of countless individuals. His profound teachings continue to guide seekers on their path towards enlightenment, and his benevolent presence is felt by all those who seek his wisdom.
The magical amulets and blessings of Luang Por Songk continue to bless the lives of those who connect with his enchanted Ya Sen and other amulets many of which were sprayed and blessed in the sacred Holy Prayer Water of Luang Phu Songk. The magic of his divine blessings remains an eternal source of healing, protection, and spiritual elevation to those who revere this Great Khao Or Lineage Buddhist Master.
A rare and famous classic Thai Buddhist amulet from yester-year; of the ‘Krueang Rang’ talismanic variety The Look Om Maha Sanaeh in Nuea Tao Pong Yuk Wat Mai Phai (sacred powders from the Wat Mai Phai early era), with Pong Ittijae powders, from Supannburi Master Luang Por Sanguan, of Wat Phai Pan Mer, released in 2500 BE, the anniversary of 2500 Years of Buddhism.
Luang Por Sanguan, was a very famous master of his time by hearsay, for his reputation preceded him, by devotees telling their stories of his powerful amulets, and the successes they had with them, and from his great merits as a monk. He was famous for Metta Maha Niyom Magic above all, and is known to have made a large variety of different types of amulets, for, as was often the case with 19th and 20th Century Master Monks, he was an Adept in many Magical Wicha. But perhaps the most famous of his Wicha was the Look Om Tao, for its immense power to charm and enchant.
His many sacred powder amulets were considered extremely powerful, through Luang Por’s use of Sacred Pong Ittijae Muan Sarn Powders which were made by Luang Por Sanguan himself, over his whole lifetime trajectory, constantly rewriting the Sacred Pong Lob Yantra and repeating the empowerment on the powders. This repeated empowerment of the Ittijae powders over many years of his practice.
Luang Por Sanguan is known to have mastered all of the methods for all five of the ‘Pong Wised’ Sacred Muan Sarn Powders; Pong Bpathamang, Puttakun, Trinisinghae, Ittijae, and Maharach. He was especially known for his ability to mix these powders with sacred herbs and other ingredients. He would empower with Metta Maha Niyom and Maha Sanaeh Magical Power of Attraction.
His Look Om became legendary for its Maha Sanaeh power so much, that it gained the nickname of ‘Look Plaek Mae’, which means ‘Makes Son and Mother do not recognizer each other’. This of course is a folk nickname, and is slighly rude, but insinuates that the power of the Look Om Tao, was able to improve even the most unlikely of chances, of charming a person who would otherwise not be interested in you.
It is known that Luang Por would always rely on his Pong Ittijae powders created over a lifetime of practice, to ensure the power within his amulets. This was because he had developed a special affinity with the empowerment of Pong Ittijae. Every time he would release amulets, he would make Look Om sacred powder balls from the Pong Ittijae surplus. Apart from Pong Ittijae, he is also known to have included Rae Saket Daw (meteorite flakes), sacred earths from Wat Ban Krang, and sacred relic minerals found at the temple of Wat Phai Pan Mer.
If we look at the Look Om of Luang Por Sanguan, over his life trajectory, we can see that his early era Look Om were mixed with other ngredients, such as sacred earths, herbs, betal-areca nut paste, channaroeng stingless bees nest paste, and powdered flakes of meteorite.
However, if we look at the Look Om which were made at Wat Phai Pan Mer after his years of Tudong preceding, we can see the sacred clay to be much more uniform like the clay used for his Pra Somdej, resulting in a hard smooth surface that is easy to recognize, even for beginners in the art of studying amulets. Their appearance is very uniform with equally high distribution of Pong Ittijae in each amulet.
This is because towards the latter part of his life, he did not go out on Tudong to the forests anymore to collect other herbs and ingredients, and would use his own Pong Ittijae. It is said that there is a Takrut Maja Sanaeh hidden within the Look Om, intended to increase power of attraction, and good business sales and customer count. Luang Por Sanguan would always oversee the mixing of Muan Sarn to make the sacred clay, and instruct his apprentice monks at the temple in assisting to press the many amulets which were released in each edition.
It is officially accounted from many devotees who visited the temple, that they always witnessed Luang Por Sanguan inscribing Yantra every evening, using a Ruesi Chalk stick made from Yantra powders, to inscribe the hundreds of Sacred Yant used to make POng Lob powders, and keep reusing the chalk residues to make new Ruesi chalk stiicks and repeat the process, for years on end. He would constantly empower the powders he made with incantations, and prayers, taking them into the shrineroom for morning and evening prayers to receive the vibrations of the monks chanting. He would make Look Om himself by mixing the powders with prayer water and other mediums and roll them in his hand, and blow his spells into them, during his nightly withdrawal from the world.
The Great Luang Por Pae, of Wat Pikul Tong in Singhburi is known to have often lauded Luang Por Sanguan, saying ‘Ajarn Sanguan makes very powerful Ittijae powders’. Whenever Luang Por Pae would have a Putta Pisek (Buddha Abhiseka) blessing ceremony, he would always invite Luang Por Sanguan to attend, and send people to go and pick him up and bring him to the temple. In return, it is said that Luang Por Sanguan would always tell his students that Luang Por Pae was a Great and Meritorious monk, and that if they found themselves in Singhburi Province, they should go visit him and pay respects.

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’).
Look Om Chan Hmak Thak Chueak Tong Chart Luang Por Tob
The olden days folk of Pechaburn are said to have preferred the following three types of amulets of Luang Por Tob above all others;
Look Om Chan Hmak
See Pheung Metta Balm
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.
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.
Sacred Betel Areca Nut Wishing Ball Luang Por Tob
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)
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.
Luang Por Tob of Wat Chon Daen
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
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
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.
The Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn of Luang Phu Tim, is perhaps the most legendary and famous of all Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn in History, and is the prized possession of the high end collector, and devotee. The Look Om Luang Phu Tim is renowned for its Maha Lap, Metta Maha Niyom Maha Sanaeh anmd Maha Pokasap Power, to increase wealth and bring lucky fortunes and mercy charm, as well as providing immense Klaew Klaad and Kong Grapan Chadtri power to protect.
Below we can see a Highly preferred early-Era Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Pasom Gesa Ta Bronze Wanich Met Klang Niyom (2 Cm diameter medium size ball) – this exhibit is an especially attractive Look Om, highly eligible for entry in competition. This early edition exhibit is rather more highly preferred than the Wat Po Sampant edition of 2517 BE, and of a much earlier edition, with richer Muan Sarn Sacred Powders.
The all-time classic Original Wat Laharn Rai Sacred Powder Ball of the Great Luang Phu Tim of Wat Laharn Rai, is one of the most legendary amulets of all time, and one of the most preferred amulets in Thai Buddhist Amulet Collecting.
The Muan Sarn Sacred Powders of the Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai, are one and the same as the powders found in the extremely expensive Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn amulets of this Master. For this reason, are considered a perfect alternative (and more affordable,) to the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim. The Pong Prai Kumarn powders famously contain Pong Gakoke Dek powdered skull bone of a Hoeng Prai Kumarn.
The Look Om came into existence because, after the pressing of Luang Phu Tim’s Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, Pim Yai, and Pim Lek amulets, there was much of the Muan Sarn Paste which had become too dry for it to be pressed into the finely detailed block press molds of the Pra Khun Phaen amulets.
And so this remainder of Pong Prai Kumarn Powder Muan Sarn, was then rolled into wishing ball amulets, as the powders were just too powerful and Sacred to dispense with without making them into amulets. And so it was, that the famous Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn came into existence.
The Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn of Luang Phu Tim is considered by most people to be the most famous Look Om Amulet of All Time. The Original Look Om of Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai are known to differentiate themselves from other editions released by Luang Phu Tim at other temples. This is for his use of Bronze Wanich golden paint, to cover the Look Om With only in the editions he released through his own temple.
Other temple releases of his Look Om (i.e. Wat Po Sampant and others), are of course equally authentic and Sacred, but less preferred than the ones which came through direct release at the temple of Wat Laharn Rai. Half the reason being that Luang Phu would use a much more highly concentrated mixture of Pong Prai Kumarn in his own direct releases.
Whereas the related temples where he allowed release and assisted in the blessings, would also mix other Muan Sarn Sacred Powders into the mixture, which despite also being extremely sacred and powerful, would then allow for less quantity of Luang Phu’s highly prized and revered powerful Pong Prai Kumarn powders to be added.
It is hence considered that the Wat Laharn Rai release versions are believed to be much more powerful Maha Lap and Maha Sanaeh type Magic, which are two of the preferred powers with those who like to use Seduction for Love and Business, and Gambling, Lottery and Wealth Attraction.
The second reason for the Wat Laharn Rai Niyom versions being the most highly revered and preferred is more of a speculative one, which means they tend to win over other editions in competition, and are considered to have more aesthetic beauty to them for their high presence of Pong Prai Kumarn and the special high quality ‘Bronze Wanich’ golden coating.
It is a part of the amulet appreciation society expert’s method of authentication to examine and study the appearance of how bronze Wanich golden paint 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 of the fine golden painted 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 heirarchies 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 Look Om 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.
However, the Look Om is perhaps the most affordable of the Old Classics of Luang Phu Tim when we consider the prices at which his Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn and other master Class Buddha Amulets demand, for which reason, the Look Om Luang Phu Tim is the most highly popular amulet with devotees who do not possess the finances to afford a Pra Khun Phaen Luang Phu Tim, which can cost many thousands of dollars, and even tens of thousands of dollars.
The Sacredness is equal to the more expensive Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders are the same, and in addition, the Bronze Wanich, is also the very same which Luang Phu used to paint the more highly priced Millionaire Amulets of his pantheon, and is one of the recognition factors used to identify his amulets..
This of course makes the Look Om the most affordable way to obtain an authentic study material to train the eyes as to the appearance of the Muan Sarn and Surface textures of his other Classics, to train oneself in recognising the authentic amulet, before risking thousands and tens of thousands of dollars on a Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim.
Hence, the Look Om 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.
We highly recommend the Look Om Luang Phu Tim as a sound investment, and a rare chance to obtain and be the proud owner of an authentic Wat Laharn Rai release model of the Eternal Classic Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim.
Luang Phu used the Bronze Wanich used in this Look Om, to also paint the famous Nang Paya Plai Diaw, Nang Paya Plai Koo, and the Classic Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Amulets. This makes it a perfect study piece, a Perfect sacred Amulet for Bucha to receive certain Magical Power, and a perfect showpiece, three excellent reasons all rolled into one (no Pun intended).
A highly attractive and rare Sacred Amulet, that is truly Powerful and stands as the Master Class Amulet of its Category, and is considered a Most Highly Prized addition to any Master Class Collector’s Showcase, and more importantly, is a most powerful amulet to possess for Bucha, and receive its Blessings, which History has proved time and time again to be one of the most powerful and famous amulets in Thai Amulet History.
The making of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn 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.
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.
Below; Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn, side by side with a Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Pim Lek Luang Phu Tim, for visual comparison of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders
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.
The Look Om Luang Phu Tim were made with a few differing surfaces; Ta Bronze Wanich (painted with luxury bronze), Chup Bronze (bronze paint immersion), Wan Sabu Luead (with Blood Soap Herb Powders), and ‘Mai Chup Bronze’ (no bronze immersion)
Despite the fact that the Look Om Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim Wat Laharn Rai carried a much lower price than his famous Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn, the power of the amulets is just the same as the Pra Khun Phaen, with the only difference being the lower price. The look om wwere always made using the remaining Muan Sarn Sacred Powders after the limited edition Pra Khun Phaen were all pressed. Any extra Muan Sarn would always be rolled into Look Om, and empowered by Luang Phu Tim in this form.
The Look Om is hence the 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 amulets, but cannot afford the price of the Pra Khun Phaen Pong Prai Kumarn Luang Phu Tim.
Luang Phu Tim Isarago, 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 mage amulets which have become all time favourites, and eternally, world famous classic amulets of the high end variety.
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 encyclopaedic 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, perhaps the most famous, preferred, was Luang Por Sakorn, of Wat Nong Grub, who is also now deceased, and whose amulets are fast becoming just as highly sought after. In second place one could possibly estimate the great Luang Phu Sin, of Wat Laharn Yai, and in third place, possibly, Pra Ajarn Somkid, of Wat Beung Tata (Rayong).
Below you can see another authentic exhibit (small pim lek) in HD video from a slightly later edition (circa 2517), for comparison of the features and aspects of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders.
