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

Pra Pid Ta Maekasit Hlang Hua Jai Pra Bpathamang – Luang Phu Bun Wat Klang Bang Gaew
An extremely rare Pra Pid Ta amulet of Luang Phu Bun, the Pra Pid Ta Hlang Tant Tu Sa Ma Ni, of Luang Phu Bun, of Wat Klang Bang Gaew. The Yant on rear face can be seen in the famous Pra Gleep Bua amulets of LP Bun, which were discovered some decades ago and found to be documented by the temple.
Below Exhibit – Pra Pid Ta Hlang Yant Tu Sa Ma Ni Nuea Maekasit See Tong Pla Hlai
Not all models of metallurgical amulets are fully documented, but from what information is accumulated to date, it is known that Luang Phu Bun made Pra Pid Ta, and Pra Pim Samadhi Gleep Bua meditating Buddha amulets in Maekasit metals, and in more rare and fewer numbers, also in other metallurgical alchemical alloys. The Pra Pid Ta is rarer than the Pra Pim Gleep Bua, which were primarily all made from Maekasit, whereas the Pid Ta is also found in Lor Boran forged alchemical bronze alloy.
The rear faces of these amulets are found to have a number of different designs on the rear face, and in the case of the Pim Gleep Bua lotus-petal shaped Maekasit versions, 7 different models are documented (which does not mean that there are no other models made, rather, that documentation is a continuous voyage of discovery, but by no means the be-and-end-all of a pantheon of amulets.
The Pid Ta Lor Boran and Gleep Bua Maekasit amulets were never released in any official edition, rather mostly handed out by Luang Phu Bun to his devotees himself, when they would come to pay respects and make merits. The documentation to date is constructed mostly from devotees who received amulets in their hand from LP Bun himself, and showed their amulets, but it coud be, that there are much more than the officially discovered, known and documented 7 Pim.
Below; A decades old publication showing various Pra Pid Ta of Luang Phu Bun
In fact, with olden days masters, one can almost always assume, that not all of their amulets were documented, as in ancient times, there was much less attention to documenting the amulets of every monk in every year of their lives. This is also why those authors who study and uncover new information, and publish that which is known are important contributors to the preservation of knowledge about Thai Buddhist Amulets and their Makers.
The Pra Pid Ta Khao Buang has many different appearances due to the olden days fcasting methods, and is still not fully documented as a pantheon. Not all models have yet been identified. However, for now, we can name and define at least seven models of Pim Pid Ta and Pra Gleep Bua.
Luang Phu Bun is said to have been a close accomplice, and often mutually visited with the Great Luang Phu Nak of Wat Huay Jorakhae, in Nakorn Pathom. LP Bun received the methodology and mastery of the Wicha Maekasit from LP Nak, which is the ancient science of Alchemical Metallurgy from the Dtamra Saiyawaet, used for casting powerful metallic magical amulets. For this reason, the majority of Luang Phu Bun’s Maekasit amulets have a dark black sheen to them, similar to Luang Phu Nak’s Maekasit. But in some very few exhibits one can see the see tong pla hlai greenish-golden sheen which is often also seen in the amulets of Luang Por Tap, of Wat Anongkaram in Nontaburi.
The seven major documented Pim are as follows; 1. Pra Pid Ta Maha Ud Hlang Agkhara Tu Sa Ma Ni (Hua Jai Pra Bpathamang***), 2. Pra Pid Ta Maha Ud Hlang Yant Dto, 3. Pra Pim Samadhi Gleep Bua Hlang Ppra Pid Ta, 4. Pra Pim Samadhi Gleep Bua Hlang Agkhara 4 Dtua (4 Khom Agkhara Syllables on rear face, seen to vary), 5. Pra Pim Samadhi Gleep Bua Sum Hlang Pra Pid Ta (Elongated pointed arch model), 6. Pra Pim Luang Por Dto Hlang Pra Pid Ta, and 7. Pra Pim Bua Met Hlang Yant Na Ma Pa Ta (with 4 Khom Pali Syllables on rear face NA MA PA TA representing the 4 Elements).
***Please note; The term ‘Hua Jai Pra Bpathamang, comes from the Dtamra Saiyawaet Magical Grimoires, but in Dhamma Sastra (Buddha Science), it has been falsely named by the amulet world as ‘Hua Jai Pra Bpathamang’ and lists the four syllables as ‘TU SA MA NI’ whereas if we list, the 4 Noble Truths in their proper order, and notice that ‘TU SA MA NI’, are the first syllables of each Pali Sanskrit word of the 4 Noble Truths (Hua Jai Pra Ariyasaj 4), then we can see that it should be ‘TU’ for ‘Tugkh; (Dhukkha – Suffering/Dissatisfactoriness), ‘SA’ for ‘Samutayaa’ (A Cause of Suffering/Dissatisfaction), then ‘NI’ for ‘Nirote’ (Nirodha – extinguishing of all external perceptions, and of Dhukkha/Dissatisfactoriness), and finally ‘MA” for ‘Maggha (The 8 Fold Path to the Cessation of all Suffering).

I is said that LP Nak himself was an adept master of alchemical metallurgy, and the Wicha Pra Pidta. It found in medium and small sizes (Pim Lek & Pim Yai) and has various models sch as the Pra Pid Ta Hoo Gradtay ‘Rabbit Ears’ model. It is believed that the Phra Pidta amulet of LP Nak has the power to protect its wearer from harm, bring good luck, and attract wealth and prosperity.

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

A Rare Loi Ongk Pra Pid Ta Thaan Sung (high Dais) Buddha Image Statuette amulet, in Nuea Pong Kluk Rak, with hand inscribed Yant Putto, and Khom Inscriptions, from the Great Luang Por Dam, of Wat Mai Nopparam, in Naratiwat Province, in the deep South of Thailand on the Malay border. Luang Por Dam was the first apprentice in the Wicha of Pra Pid Ta Magic, to the Great Luang Por Kron, of Wat Bang Sae. This exhibit differs from many, in the fact that it has had red Rak Chart Jeen Boran coated on the base.
The Pid Ta is made using the very same Muan Sarn Sacred Powders admixture, empowerment, and inscriptions, as those of the Great Luang Por Kron, and the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Dam himself, have now become legendary in their own right, and stand alone on their own merits as Pra Niyom master Class Category amulets.
Highly revered and collected by Looksit (Devotees) of his Mentor Luang Por Kron, a Buddhist Master Monk from Malaysia. Luang Por Kron was Abbot of Wat Bang Sae in the province of Kalantan.
He made many Pid Ta amulets which were so very preferred (‘Niyom’). It is said in Thai Amulet circles that, in the same way that we prefer the Pra Somdej Wat Rakang as a Niyom amulet, so, in Malaysia and even Singapore, the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Dam, and his Mentor Luang Por Kron, became just as sought after and beloved. Malaysians know Luang Por Dam very well, for his temple is very close to the Malaysian border in Naratiwat, which is one of the reasons LP Dam was able to be a close accomplice of LP Kron, and receive and continue his Wicha.
The Pra Pid Ta amulets of Luang Por Dam of Wat Mai Nopparam, have become ever more comparable and popular to those of his Mentor and Wicha Inheritance Kroo Ba Ajarn Luang Por Kron, for the fact that Luang Por Kron’s amulets are almost impossible to find anymore these days, and the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Dam have hence become the favored alternative, for they are considered to possess the magic of both Masters.
Below; Luang Por Kron – Wat Uttamaram (Kalimantan Malaysia)
As to Luang Por Dam’s Mentor, LP Kron, Malaysian Buddhists do not often call him Luang Por Kron as Thai people do, rather ‘Tok Racha‘, which means something similar to Thailand’s top Royal Monk always being called ‘Pra Sangkaracha’.
It is said that despite the fact that most of the surrounding households in the vicinity of Luang Por Krons temple were Muslim, that he earned their respect, and was an honored person. He was not called Luang Por Kronby Malays, as we call him in Thailand, rather, was named ‘Tok Raja’, which means ‘ as equal to the Sangha Raja’ .
The reason for this comes from a legend that the daughter of a powerful Sultan of Kalantan was cursed with a black magic spell, which caused his mind to become strangely affected, and even doctors and psychologists could not help to cure him, and even the Muslim witch doctors could not break the spell with their magic.
But Luang Por Kron was able to heal her, and return her to sanity. This caused LP Kron to recieve great respect from the Sultan who then gave him the honorary name of Tok Raja. His most preferred amulets are the Pra Pid Ta, which were mostly hand made molds, in Muan Sarn Sacred Powders with Lacquer (Nuea Pong Kluk Rak), some very few in carved wood, and a very few are sometimes seen in carved ivory.
Luang Por Kron began making Pra Pid Ta amulets sometime around the year 2480 BE onwards, mostly making hand molded clay models, resulting in each one having a very original appearance, some with very wide legs, others less so. Most were made in Nuea Pong Kluk Rak herbal powders with lacquer mixed into the clay, and hand molded, to form an inimitable effect that has made his Pra Pid Ta amulets so original in design.
Many of his hand molded Pid Ta do not have a dais and have very wide legs, whereas others have a more standard form with inscription, and less wide legs, and usually with inscriptions of Unalome and Yant on the surface of the image. His other highly preferred amulets among devotees, are the Rian Roop Dork Jik 1st edition coin of 2500 BE, and the second edition coin, the Rian Roop Khai of 2505 BE.

This Great Monk achieved his status through his Great deeds and his great Diligence in his Patipatā (Practice of Purity and Renunciation), and in his Great Attainments in Dhamma Pariyatti and Dhamma Patipatā. Luang Phu To was born on the 27th March 2429 BE in Ban Klong Bang Noi in Samutr Prakarn and passed away on 5th March 2524 BE. His many honorable awards of status reflect his great practice and diligence, since beginning to studdy the Dhamma Vinaya at Wat Pradoo as a Samanera Novice monk, through to become the Bishop of the Ta Pra Municipality (2463 BE), to becoming awarded the charge of being the Pra Kroo Sangka Wichit for the Abbot of Wat Maha Tat in 2457 BE.
In 2463 BE, Luang Phu To became ascended to the status of Pra Kroo Sanya Badtr Chan Dtri (Third Level, tantamount to Batchelor of Arts in Dhamma). In 2497 BE, Luang Phu then became promoted to Pra Kroo Sana Badtr Chan Toe (Second Level, tantamount to a Doctorate in Dhamma), of Royal Category. In the year 2500 BE, Luang Phu was then given the additional status of Upachaya Ordaining Officer.
In the year 2506 BE, Luang Phu attained the status of Pra Kroo Sanya Badtr Chan Ek (tantamount to a Masters Degree in Dhamma). In 2510 BE Luang Phu To was given the charge of being the Gammagarn treasurer of the Temples of Ta Pra Minicipality.Then, in 2511 BE, Luang Phu To was promoted once more to Pra Kroo Chan Kroo Pised (tantamount to an Honors degree in Dhamma).

In 2521, Luang Phu To received the status of Pra Racha Kana Chan Rach (tantamount to being an Archbishop of the Royal Decree).

Ancient Amulet Proudly Presents the all time classic Pra Pid Ta Pim Chalud Nuea Pong Jum Rak amulet of Luang Por Tong Sukh. An Ancient Pra Niyom Master-Class Amulet made using Sacred Yantra Powders, and ‘Jum Rak’ lacquer dipped. An eternal favorite of devotees around the world, from Luang Por Tong Sukh of Wat Sapan Sung
All editions of Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung are highly sought after. and seen as preferred Master Class category amulets (Pra Niyom), regardless from which Master they came from.
Pra Pid Ta Pim Chalud Luang Por Tong Sukk Wat sapan Sung Nuea Pong Jum Rak
The Pra Pid Ta Wat of Sapan Sung Temple, is a Dtamra (legendary series) that spans over various generations of abbots, all of whom have managed to gain equal fame and high repute for their Pra Pid Ta amulets, all of which preserve the style and methods of the original Wicha made so famous by Luang Phu Iam.
The Pra Pid Ta old amulets of Wat Sapan Sung is known in two major Pim (models), namely the Pim Chalud (Blind Man model), and the Pim Dtapap (Terrapin model). Mostly the amulets would be covered in Lacquer, with some very few exhibits in pure powders. Others can be found to have had the lacquer cleaned off them by devotees in later years. It is known that Luang Phu Glin, one of the Great Masters of the Wicha Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung, was allergic to Lacquer, and so his versions never had lacqer on them and were pure powders (except when a devotee applied the lacquer himself after receiving the amulet). Luang Por Tong Sukh and Luang Phu Iam however, would more often than not dip the Pra Pid Ta in lacquer as a protective layer.
All masters have followed the same design and method of lacquering, resulting in the amulets of each master being very similar in design, and mostly can only be differentiated by estimation of the age of the lacquer and Muan Sarn Sacred Powders in order to determine which Generation of Master the amulet came from.
Luang Por Tong Sukh Intasaro (Pra Kroo Nantagij Sope), was the abbot of Wat Sapan Sung during the years 2491 BE to 2525 BE, after Luang Phu Glin, and Luang Phu Iam. Much like his predecessors, he continued to preserve and nurture the Wicha Pra Pid Ta already made famous from this Temple by the great Luang Phu Iam, and Luang Phu Glin, and produced his own editions, using the Wicha bestowed upon him from his Kroo Ba Ajarn before him.
Luang Por Tong Sukh was born on the 11th March 2446 BE in the village of Nong Phai Hlueang in Petchburi and was the son of Mr. Kong and Mrs. Pae, and was the youngest of 5 sibliings. At age 11, he went to be educated at the temple of Wat Nong Wa in Petchburi, with Pra Ajarn Joy, Ajarn Say, and Ajarn Nim. When he reached age 13, he left with his uncle to help work to assist his family, and moved to work in Rachaburi.
Below; Luang Por Tong Sukh of Wat Sapan Sung
At age 20, he was called into the military service with the Infantry in Petchburi. After he finished his military service, he applied for a job in the Police force, and was employed as a Police Lieutenant in Petchburi for two years. After this, he was sent to work in the Southern Province of Naratiwat, and later to other Porvinces like Satun, Ban Pong, Rachaburi, Chayapum and Surin. He was eventually sent back to work in Petchburi, and after one single year working there, he began to develop immense boredom with the ways of the world, and left the Police force.
He ordained into the Sangha in the year 2470 at Wat Na Prohm in Petchburi. Pra Kroo Pit (Abbot) was his Upachaya Ordaining Officer, and Pra Ajarn Phong was his Gammawajajarn Prompt, and Pra Ajarn Up was his Anusawanajarn Witness. He stayed at Wat Nong Wa for one year, and then Pra Ajarn Peng of Wat Sapan Sung who passed by traveling on Tudong, invited him to join him to go stay at Wat Ta Gwian in Pak Kred in Nontaburi. Luang Por Tong Sukh stayed here for three years and then moved on to go study Pariyatti Dhamma at Wat Sapan Sung in the year 2474 BE.
At that time Pra Kroo Sopana Sasanagij (Luang Phu Glin) was the abbot, and his friend Ajarn Peng was the Pariyatti Dhamma teacher. In the year 2476 BE, Luang Phu Sukh gained his Doctorate in Dhamma studies, and Luang Phu Glin gave him the job of teaching Pariyatti Dhamma instead of Luang Por Peng.
Luang Por Tong Sukh then at this time began to study and practice the Dtamra Saiyawaet Grimoire of Buddha Magic and Occult Sorcery, and the various Kata which were pertinent to the Wicha of the Temple and Masters of Wat Sapan Sung, such as the Inscriptions for Takrut, the methods of making Pong Lob Yantra Powders, the Wicha of making Pra Pid Ta amulets, and Holy Water. He received all of these Wicha and Ritual methods from Luang Phu Glin, then the Abbot and Guardian Sentinel of the Wicha, passed down from Luang Phu Iam.
In the year 2482 BE, Luang Phu Glin passed away, and Luang Por Tong Sukh was given the emergency status of temporary Abbot until 2490 BE, after which he was officially instated by the Sangha Comittee as Abbot with full documentation and Royal decree. He performed his duties and continued the work of Luang Phu Iam and Luang Phu Glin, and was now the new Master and Guardian of the Wicha Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung, as the third important master of the lineage Wicha. In the year 2508 he was awarded status of Upachaya.
Luang Por Tong Sukh administrated the temple with great prowess, and brought many improvements to the enclave, and saw to the needs of the devotees. His kindness and strength of practice was legendary with the local devotees, for his strict adherence to the Dhamma Vinaya Buddhist Canon, and maintaining his purity as a Buddhist Monk.
His guidance to the younger Samanera novice monks was excellent, which led to the temple having only well practiced Monks residing, which brought even more reverence from the local community of devotees, for the temple was seen as a true place of practice, with only pure monks residing.
Luang Por Tong Sukh guided the fold and took care of the temple and its Bhikkhus with complete self renunciation for many years, serving the congregation, until he passed away on the 7th April 2525 BE at 8:00 am, at the age of 79 Years Old.
Luang Por Tong Sukh made the Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung throughout his trajectory, for devotees would come in throngs every day to seek out amulets, and so one can find Pra Pid Ta of this master coming from a range of time periods, ranging between about 2490 BE, up to his passing in 2525 BE, spanning a period of over 35 Years of amulet making.
His early era amulets will hence have similar appearance in ageing characteristics as those amulets from the latter Era of his Mentor Luang Phu Glin. It is hence a point of study to recognise the ageing characteristics of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders and Lacquers of the Pra Pid Ta Wat sapan Sung amulets, to separate a late Era Luang Phu Iam amulet from an early Era Luang Phu Glin, and a late Era Luang Phu Glin amulet from an early Era Luang Por Tong Sukh. To master this aspect of amulet study of the Pra Pid Ta Wat sapan Sung, is to Master the Dtamra of amulets of three Generations of Masters in its entirety.
Luang Por Tong Sukh’s amulets are manyfold, ranging from his famous Pra Pid Ta, to Rian Kanajarn Monk Coins, and many talismanic charms such as Takrut, Look Om, and Pha Yant. Amongst his most preferred amulets are of course the Pra Pid Ta, and the Roop Lor Luang Phu Iam, and Roop Lor Luang Phu Glin Loi Ongk Statuettes (released in 2500 BE). Other preferred amulets are the Rian Sema Block Ueam, the Rian Luang Phu Glin, and Rian Khaw Hlam Dtad, as well as various other Rian Sema type coins. Some of his amulets can fetch thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars for rare preferred block presses.
The Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Tong Sukh is a very poreferred and popular amulet, for its undisputed powers, which have been repeatedly confirmed over the years with so many stories in the newspapers about miraculous events happening to devotees who wore the Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung of Luang Por Tong Sukh. Luang Por Tong Sukh made the Pra Pid Ta exactly as passed down to him by Luang Phu Glin and his predecessor Luang Phu Iam.
Below; Luang Phu Glin, of Wat Sapan Sung
It is said that the Pra Pid Ta of Luang Por Tong Sukh is just as powerful and can be used instead of Pra Pid Ta by Luang Phu Glin or Luang Phu Iam, and the amulets of all three Masters are collected with equal fervency and preference by devotees, the only difference between the amulets of these three masters being the age and the price. Luang Por Tong Sukh would use old powders which were passed down from Luang Phu Gling, which Luang Phu Glin in turn had received from Luang Phu Iam.
It is said that Luang Por Tong Sukh made amulets from about the year 2490 BE onwards. Both the Pim Chalud and the Pim Tapap models are very highly revered and sought after, with his most preferred and rarest models being the Pim Sader Jun, and the Pim Sorng Sader (2 belly buttons), and the Pim Tapap (Terrapin Model).
The Pim Sader Jun is very rare, made in the year 2495 BE, and fetches very high prices on the marketplace, starting at about 1000$ and upwards. However, it is a fallicy that the Pim Sader Jun was only pressed in 2495 BE, as Luang Por Tong Sukh kept pressing the Sader Jun amulets with the very same block press until it broke sometime between the years 2510 BE and 2520 BE. The Pim sader Jun and Pim Sorng Sader remain his rarest and most highly valued models, fetching extremely high prices with collectors.
The Pra Pid Ta Wat Sapan Sung are highly renowned for their powers of Maha Pokasap Metta Maha Niyom Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri, to bring great wealth and protection to the wearer.

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

The amulets of this, perhaps the greatest of all Master Monks with Wicha Akom, are amongst the most sought after and valued in the world of Thai Buddhist Amulets. Be it his Rian Roop Muean, Somdej Rasamee and Somdej Prapa Mondon, or his Pra Pid Ta, Prok Bai Makham, Takrut, Prakam Rosaries, and other Talismanic Charms, the spiritual value and magical power is equally regarded as being of the most powerful and truly magical amulets one could afford.
Luang Phu Sukh is one of the greatest Magic Monks of all Thai History, for which reason this is an amulet more to keep and Bucha than anything else, although it is also a good investment as the price will become ever more expensive. This is already an extremely rare and hard to find amulet. A most sacred and desirable addition to anyones collection indeed. Few amulets at this price can compare considering the sacredness, the maker and the beauty and age of this amazing amulet.
Luang Phu Sukh, who was so famous for his Magical Powers and Miraculous Feats, which included having been seen to blow into Tamarind tree leaves and transform them into Bees, or turn Banana Flowers into live Rabbits, fly through the sky, and breathe underwater. Luang Phu Sukh was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of his Lordly Highness, Admiral Grom Luang Chumporn, who was an apprentice to Luang Phu Sukh in Sorcery, and one of his greatest Devotees.
Luang Phu Sukh had many Wicha such as the Wicha Suea Saming, able to transform into a Tiger, and the Wicha Look Pern Sakot, which was to perform incantations into a bullet of a single shot firing gun, and the bullet would always find its mark on target, without fail. One could say that Luang Phu Suk is one of the greatest masters of the History of Thai Guru Monks, and is one of the top Ten Legendary Monks of all time.
There are so any legends told about his miraculous powers and feats. His Mastery of Traditional healing and herbal Medicine has led his written works on the subject to become the greatest Thai Occult herbalism Recipe Grimoire in all existence. He was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of a great number of the most powerful Master Monks of the last Century, and his powerful Magic remains second to no other Guru Monk in Thai History.
It is said that Luang Phu Sukh became the Kroo Ba Ajarn of Grom Luang Chumporn, a Royal Courtier, an Admiral, and a Great Sorceror of his time. This happened as Grom Luang Chumporn’s navy boat had broken and he was forced to park the bloat close to Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao. Grom Luang went to make reverence to Luang Phu Sukh, by pretending that he was just a simple commoner, and not a member of the Lordly Family, but Luang Phu Sukh addressed him by his name, surprising Grom Luang Chumporn.

Below; Grom Luang Chumporn
Luang Phu Sukh told him that he saw his Aura approaching, and that it was brighter than that of the normal commoners, and that it told him already who he was. Grom Luang Chumporn asked to learn Wicha with Luang Phu Sukh, and was bestowed with many Magical Wicha, such as the ability to remain under the water for hours and breathe as if he was on land.
Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi (Pra Pid Ta Graduk Phii) – Pra Ajarn Hnoo, Wat Po Ta Dtian (Wat Chetupon)
The legendary Pra Pong Athi (Graduk Phii) amulet of Pra Ajarn Hnoo Wat Po Ta Dtian became famous during the second world wartime as a powerful protector against deadly dangers, and has remained famous to this day. It was during the second world war and Indo-Chiina wartime era that many powerful sorceror monks in Thailand began to come out and create amulets to distribute to soldiers and the common folk, to protect them against the deadly dangers of wartime. In that time, the Japanese were occupying Thailand as ‘forced allies’, and so Thailand was being bombed by the allied nations, who were attacking the Japanese military installations. Very often bombs would miss the Japanese target, and hit a local village instead,n and innocent Thai people were killed. And so it was in this era than we came to see amulets like the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii come into existence.
Pra Ajarn Hnoo of Wat Po Ta Dtian (Wat Chetupon)
Pra Ajarn Hnoo was a Master Gaeji Ajarn who was known for his intensive practice and mastery of Vipassana Kammathana, and Khmer Sorcery. he would not socialise with other monks, and only his most fearless and devote initiates would dare to enter his Kuti Hut, for it was known that he would ‘Liang Phii’ (take care of Ghosts in his hut). In the year 2485 BE, Pra Ajarn Hnoo, of Wat Po Ta Dtian (or, ‘Wat Pra Chetupon Wimon Mangkalaram’), created a powerful amulet, in secret, and with his own hands, to help people survive the war and prosper in life. This amulet was to become a legend that has maintained its status into the modern era, and is even the subject of a documentary.
Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi (Pong Graduk Phii) – Pra Ajarn Hnoo (Wat Po)
This amulet is of course the Pra Pid Ta Nuea Pong Athi (or better known as ‘Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii’ amulet. Pra Ajarn Hnoo was a Gaeji Ajarn of Khmer Origins, who possessed powerful Necromantic Wicha. He was not very old at the time, but already had a large following of respectful Devotees, who revered him for his powerful Magic. Pra Ajarn Hnoo liked to grow magical herbs around his Kuti Hut at the temple to use for making amulets and potions, holy water and bestowing blessings. Pra Ajarn Hnoo was often visited by devotees to perform spiritual healings with his holy water and herbal potions, and people would ask him for amulets and blessings. Pra Ajarn Hnoo hence began making amulets, in a very unusual manner compared to the usual Thai Buddhist Traditional methods, bringing in his Khmer Sorcery to add to the magical power of the amulet. He used ashes from the bones of cremated corpses, mixed with Puttakun Powders and Ittijae Powders, and Pong Wan Aathan (a mixture of powdered magical herbs and pollens)
The use of the ashes of cremated bones in the amulets came from Pra Ajarn Hnoo’s Khmer Necromantic Sorcery training, which holds to the premise that the ashes or bone powders, funereal earths and corpse oils of the dead, possess immensely powerful magic.
The ashes of Phii Dtaay Hoeng were used, according to the Dtamra Saiasart Khmer Grimoires of Necromantic Sorcery, which specifies that only the ashes of a Hoeng Prai Ghost can be used if the Wicha is to be powerful. A Hoeng Prai is often known as a ‘screaming ghost’ because the word means a person who died in an accident prematurely, or through unforeseen circumstances. So often this will mean a person who died screaming. Hoeng Prai spirits are in Limbo and often angry, possessing immensely powerful psychic energy. The sorceror appeases the spirit in Limbo by agreeing to a collaborative effort, where the ghost of the spirit in Limbo agrees to use its psychic powers to aid the human who owns the amulet made from its ashes, and accumulate good Karma to achieve eventual release from Limbo.
One of the many Pim Song models of the famous Pra Pong Athi Pra Pid Ta Graduk Phii
In addition, astrological Necromancy states that a Hoeng Prai Ghost must die on a Saturday and be cremated on a Tuesday, for the full formula of Lucky Fortunes Magic to come into effect.
Pra Ajarn Hnoo saw to it that he fulfilled al of these Ritual requirements, and gathered the sacred ashes until he had enough to press amulets with them, and mixed them with his other prepared Muan Sarn Sacred Powder ingredients, the Pong Puttakun, Pong Ittijae, and Wan Aathan. In addition, Pra Ajarn Hnoo then added his special ingredient, ‘Wan Pong’, or more commonly known as ‘Wan Graser’. Wan Graser is a very rare herbal plant found in the deep rainforests, and is said in Folk Legends to be a bloodsucking ‘Vampire’ plant. If an animal gets entangled in it, it is said the plant can slowly suck the blood out of the animal until it dies. This herb is a very difficult herb to cultivate, as its true habitat is in the deepest rain forests, but Pra Ajarn Hnoo had managed to cultivate some around his hut at the temple, and he used them for the making of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phi.
Pra Ajarn Hnoo made various different amulets from the Graduk Phii Hoeng Prai Ashes, including Pra Somdej, and Pra Pid Ta amulets.

In any case, despite the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders used by Pra Ajarn Hnoo to make the Pra Pid Ta Pong Athi amulets seeming very scary in their natural origins, Pra Ajarn Hnoo performed appeasement rituals and purification ceremonies over all the individual ingredients of the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders before the amulets were made, and removed any black magick or negative karmic influences and energies from them beforehand, leaving only the pure unstained magical power and energy remaining, to be re-empowered with its new purpose.
The power extracted through Necromancy was then imbued within the form of the Pra Pid Ta amulets, and blessed with Buddhist Blessings of the Buddha Abhiseka (Dhamma Chakra opening of the eyes of the Buddha), empowering the extremely powerful energies within the Muan Sarn Sacred Powders to be able to bring auspicious blessings and strong protective power to keep the wearer from harm, and lead to prosperity and happiness.
Pra Pid Ta Athi Nuea Pong Graduk Phii Exhibit B Pra Ajarn Hnoo – Wat Po
It is said of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii amulet, that its protective powers are incomparable, and that the traveller who wears one will pass through all his journeys safely. Another strange aspect of the magic of the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii, is that people noticed not only that one remained safe whilst traveling, but that when the traveler wearing a Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii gets off the vehicle alone, people would ask the traveler ‘and aren’t the others going? coming with you?’ (as if they couldn’t imagine the wearer being alone). This shows powerful Metta Maha Niyom Mercy Charm present within the amulet too.’
Pra Pong Graduk Phii Exhibit C – Pra Ajarn Hnoo – Wat Po
Many gamblers have found the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii to be an exellent Luckbringer to turn the tables and odds in their favour, and to ‘whisper’ in the ear of the gambler to hint as to what bets should be placed. This is known as ‘Prai Grasip’ Ghost Whisperer Magick. Pra Ajarn gave a rule to gamblers however for this amuletl That ‘If your winnings are within reason, you should not push your luck too far’.
A highly preferred amulet with those devotees who prefer less subtlety for a fast acting amulet that emanates Magickal Power without restraints, the Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii is a recommendable amulet, for protection, gambling and general prosperity. The Pra Pid Ta Pong Graduk Phii is by no means an easy amulet to find these days, and is a very powerful magickal amulet of great fame and renown in Thailand.
Ancient Amulet’s Top Recommendation for 2015 -Sacred Ancient Amulets from Luang Phu Tim (Wat Laharn Rai), and Luang Phu To (Wat Pradoo Chimplee).This now ever-increasingly famous and sought out 2516 BE edition, from Wat Sri Palotay, in Chonburi, has now become one of the most favored and hunted additions in recent times, especially in collectors circles, and with the Devotees of the two great master monks of the last half century; Luang Phu Tim (Wat Laharn Rai), and Luang Phu To (Wat Pradoo Chimplee).
Pra Somdej Kaiser 2516 BE Luang Phu Tim Wat Sri Palotay
The reason for this, is that News has now got out around the Nation, that these amulets were empowered and blessed by the Great Luang Phu Tim, and Luang Phu To, with Muan Sarn Sacred Powders from Luang Phu Tim being added to the sacred clay amulets.
Rear face Pra Somdej Kaiser Wat Sri Palotay
These amulets, have the obvious presence of Pong Prai Kumarn, and other famous Muan Sarn Sacred Powders, known to come from the hand of Luang Phu Tim. This edition is now slowly taking on immense preference and popularity, even faster than the Wat Pai Lom amulets.
Pra Somdej Prok Po Luang Phu Tim 2516 BE Wat Sri Palotay
This is due to the fact that since Luang Phu Tim’s first generation amulets became depleted, and only available to Millionaires, this subsequently, has caused the second tier of more commonly known amulets blessed by Luang Phu Tim, such as the Wat Pai Lom edition, to also suffer rapid depletion, and disappearance of the edition from the marketplace.
Rear face Pra Somdej Prok Po Luang Phu Tim Wat Sri Palotay
The Wat Sri Palotay edition was not recognised until 2011, and hence has till now escaped the speculators and collectors and evaded their hands, allowing these amulets to still be avaialable whilst they are still not featured in the Nationwide News.
This will however happen, and it is only a matter of time before this series of amulets blessed, empowered and with Muan Sarn Sacred Powders from Luang Phu Tim and Luang Phu To, is also only to be found in collector catalogies, competitions, and the showcases of millionaires.

The edition is highly recommended to colkect before they become yet another rarity that is eyond the affordable reach of the general devotee, and can be considered a definite future classic of World Famous Status.

The edition is however already being snapped up by collectors and devotees in Thailand, where news of Luang Phu Tim’s empowerment of the edition has already begun to become widespread, and is causing fervor in the collector communities. This edition is considered to be slowly taking over status from what is currently the most famous remaining edition of Luang Phu Tim’s pantheon of amulets, the Wat Pai Lom series edition, which is also now the top sought after series blessed by Luang Phu Tim. We highly recommend both editions as a wise choice of Sacred Amulets, that have a Grand Future and Highly Ascending Trajectory ahead of them.
Pra Pid Ta jumbo size sacred powder amulet from one of this Century’s most highly acclaimed guru masters of Sacred Buddhist Amulet making, and one of the most highly reverent and respected monks in living memory, Luang Por Pae, of Wat Pikul Tong (Singhburi).
This particular Amulet, is in super jumbo size, and is one of his most famous all-time classics and is especially sought after, for its individuality. This is largely due to the rainbow coloured sacred powders used for its making, we to lend it a very attractive visual appearance. Rainbow coloured sacred powder Amulets are most famous because of two famous masters one of them being Luang Por Pae, and the other of course, being Luang Por Koon of Wat Ban Rai in Nakorn Ratchasima.
Pra Pid Ta Sariga Nuea Pong Puttakun – Luang Por Niyom – Wat Takian Tia 2546 BE – extremely rare
Pra Pid Ta Luang Por Niyom Wat Takian Tia (Bad Tong)2546 BE
This gold leaf covered Sacred Power Pid ta is extremely rare to find, with only the normal powder version without gold leaf still sometimes appearing for rental. Luang Por Niyom is a Sak Yant Master and Adept Amulet maker of the Chon Buri district who passed away in 2552 BE. He was a very Kind and Friendly monk with a devout following, who, since his passing has become ever more popular for his amulets around the whole country.
Now though, the collectors are beginning to take an extreme interest and collect all of the rarer amulets of Luang Por Niyom, for they know that the future holds a great legend in its hands, and that his amulets will become amongst the rare Masterpieces of the foregoing Generation of Thai Guru master Monk amulets.
The amulet is made from visibly fine and rich Muan Sarn with a very high grade of Pong Puttakun, which can be seen rising to the surface as a fine white mildew powder.
The Amulets of Luang Por Niyom have become so sought after this last year or so that they have rapidly become extremely rare, and the older editions of his amulets that were still in the temple, have been locked into a glass case and are no longer for sale.
This shows how difficult it has become to obtain an authentic amulet from the time when Luang Por was still alive. Many of the Devotees of Luang Phu Tim are turning to Chonburi Master Luang Por Niyoms amulets as a powerful alternative to Luang Phu Tims Sacred powder amulets, for they are seen to be of great power and similar richness of composition of sacred powders, but still for now at a much more affordable price (for now).
The amulet comes with free Waterproof Casing included
We advise to collect and safeguard amulets by LP Niyom, as a safe investment and a worthy Sacred Amulet of true Buddhist Spiritual value, and collectibility.
The Pid Ta Sariga is one of Luang Pors more popular and famous amulets and gained fame due to many success stories both for Maha Lap (money and fortunes) and for Kong Grapan/Klaew Klaad (evasion of deadly accidents and invincibility blessing), making the amulet a proven and tested lifesaver and wealth increaser. Luang Por Niyom was a special Monk with special powers, who is only now becoming publicly heard of outside of his Province and in International Amulet Scene.
Many people get a very strong and good feeling just from seeing Luang Pors Image, which is another proof of the immense Maha Sanaeh and Metta charm aura which this great master of Chon Buri possessed.
