Phra Pidta Pim Bua Chan Diaw Ner Samrit Luang Phu Iam
This Famous Classic Phra Niyom Master Class Ancient Amulet, is a revered item from the great Luang Phu Iam Suwannasarō of Wat Hnang and Wat Ko Non, the Phra Pidta Bua Chan Diaw. The amulet was created between 2375 and 2469 BE. This particular model is a single-tiered lotus leaf dais version called Ud Krang Channaroeng and features Channaroeng bee’s nest paste. Channaroeng, which utilizes the sticky material of stingless bees, has been considered a powerful ingredient for centuries in various cultures. In Thai Saiyasart Occult Practice, creating this paste using specific formulas and empowerment methods is a difficult and revered skill, mastered by only a few great masters throughout history, with Luang Phu Iam being one of the most well-known.
In the epoch when Luang Phu Iam presided as abbot of Wat Hnang, the Phra Pidta was unveiled, a wooden statue of the Buddha closing his orifices, entering the peaceful state of Nirodha. The Buddha was gracefully draped in a rich, black lacquer of herbal origin, a common preservation technique utilized in ancient times to extend the life of amulets.
It is whispered that the gifted artisan Luang Phu Iam began crafting hand-hewn wooden Phra Pidta statuettes sometime around 2448 BE, yet he had honed his amulet-making skills long before under the tutelage of his mentor, Luang Phu Rod, at Wat Ko Non. Even before his first release of the renowned and sought-after Phra Pidta Yant Yung and Phra Pidta Pid Tawarn at Wat Hnang in the early 2440s, Luang Phu Iam had already established a reputation for his amulet-making prowess. His later, famous and incredibly valuable Phra Pid Ta Yant Yung and Pidta editions, created from alchemical metals, were produced individually in the same traditional manner as the revered Phra Pidta Wat Tong of Luang Por Tap, the undisputed king of all Phra Pidta amulets.
Presenting a classic and pristine exhibit of a world famous Pra Niyom Category amulet, that is extremely rare to encounter, and highly renowned for its Maha Amnaj, Klaew Klaad, and Kong Grapan Magic, the world famous Takrut Hnaa Bpaag Suea Tiger Takrut, of Luang Phu Nak (Pra Pimontam), of Wat Arun Rachaworaram. As a point of interest, Wat Arun is also known as the Temple of the Dawn, also known as ‘Wat Jaeng’, because both ‘Arun’ and ‘Jaeng’, mean ‘the Dawn’). Luang Phu Nak was a Guru Master-Monk of immense Status in the eyes of the community, with Great Merits to his name, and was renowned for his powerful mind and meditative ability.
He was said to be both full of Spiritual Merit, but also highly endowed with Wicha powerful Magical abilities, which arise as side effects of the diligent practice of a meditative Monk of high purity of mind. He is considered to be the Master of all Tiger Forehead scroll Takrut of all history (arguably comparable by some, with the Takrut of LP Jong of Wat Na Tang Nork, LP Parn of Wat Bang Hia, and LP Bun of Wat Klang Bang Gaew).
It is It is said that in olden days during Luang Phu Nak’s time, his devotees would notice how when they passed a cowshed, even the Buffaloes would cower in fear at their sensing of the Magic of the fearsome Tiger emitted by the Takrut Hnaa Bpaag Suea of LP Nak. They would run to escape, as if a real tiger was hunting them.
Luang Phu Nak was extremely famous for various amulets, especially his Takrut, and above all, his Takrut Hnaa Bpaag Suea Tiger Forehead skin spell composed of Sinjana cord wrapped and lacquer covered skin of the forehead of a Suea Kroeng Tiger.
The Takrut Hnaa Bpaag Suea of Luang Phu Nak, is believed to posses immense Kong Grapan Chadtri Invincibility Magic of the Ancient Warriors, Maha Ud Gunstopper Magic, and Klaew Klaad Evasive Magic to Evade Death by Accidents, as well as powerful Anti Black Magic, and Metta Maha Niyom mercy Charm, with Maha Amnaj Commanding Power and Superiority Magic.
Biography of Luang Phu Nak (Wat Arun)
Luang Phu Nak was born on the 3rd of January 2415 BE, in Ban Bang Poon, in the province of Pathum Thani. His father was named Mr. Nuan, and his mother was named Mrs. Luean.
He only made a limited number, for handing out to his closest Devotees, which is one reason why the takrut Hnaa Bpaag Suea Luang Phu Nak is so rare to find, and therefore, also highly valued. Luang Phu Nak would not hand these Takrut out frivolously, and would choose carefully who he gave one to, and would only issue them in small numbers. This was because the Wicha Takrut Hnaa Bpaag Suea he had inherited from Luang Por Hwang of Wat Tian Thawaay, required the Takrut to be made and completed on occasions of 5th Lunar Saturdays only, which are rare, and therefore made it impossible to make his Takrut in any large numbers.
The Devotees of the time would go to buy Tiger skin from the Jao Grom Ber shop in fromt of Wat Sam Plerm, as in those days, hunters and collectors of animal hides, bone, teeth and the like would take their wares to sell through this shop. (hides and parts, many of which are now prohibited to sell, but which in those days was common to see on the market). Luang Phu Nak would usually make his Takrut somewhere between 1 to 2 Inches long, which allowed for only a few Takrut to be made from one forehead skin, which was why his Takrut were rarely seen over 2 Inches long.
He would first immerse the forehead skin in holy water to soften the dry skin, and then scrape off the fur, to leave bare skin, and then use the skin to wrap into Takrut scrolls, which he would inscribe and empower with Wicha Maha Ud. He would also then once the skin was soft through immersion, inscribe further Khom Agkhara Sanskrit spells, to invoke the spirit of the tiger, using the Wicha Akarn 32, and the Wicha Hnun Taat 4, to reanimate the power and spirit within the tiger forehead. Luang Phu would then tie the wrapped Hnaa Bpaag Suea hide scroll with holy Sinjana cords, to prevent the scrolls from unwinding as they dried over the decades. The Takrut are seen to be lacquered, many with flakes of gold leaf visible. Most will have the Sinjana cord wrapping, but there are also some exhibits which do not have the Sinjana cord binding too (rarer).
Once the Takrut had been made on a 5th Lunar Saturday, Luang Phu would then keep them to empower in his Kuti hut until the next 5th Lunar Saturday occurred (however long that may be). And then, he would give a final Buddha Abhiseka empowerment and blessing to the Takrut, and issue them to his devotees thereafter one at a time during visits. The Takrut Hnaa Bpaag Suea of Luang Phu Nak Wat Arun, os a very rare amulet to behold in this day and age, and is one of the most preferred Maha Ud Kong Grapan amulets of all time.
Pra Pimon Tam Luang Phu Nak passed away in the year 2485 BE during the reign of his Majesty King Rama 5 at the age of 72 years and 6 months. Luang Phu Nak remains perhaps the most well remembered and respected, and revered monk of Wat Arun in the minds of Thai people of the last Century.

Released in very small numbers, along with Bucha statues and Loi Ongk Roop Lor Statuettes, at Wat Kampaeng, in Buddha Abhisekha ceremony in 2534 BE, with the Abbot and lineage masters of Luang Por Plai present, to invoke the spirit and blessings of Luang Por Plai.
Already an extremely rare amulet to find, and a preferred alternative to the 2478 and 2485 ‘Lang Pha Cha’ cemetery restoration editions, and is a highly preferred rare amulet, which stands above the already highly popular (but easier to find) ‘Run Sam’ third edition Commemorative edition of 2555 BE. Many people mistake the Pim Wor Gor 3 amulet for the third edition (for indeed it was the third made), when in truth, the official ‘third edition’ ‘Run Sam’ series was released much later in 2555 BE.
The Rian Lor Job LP Plai Pim Gor Por 3 was released along with Loi Ongk Statuettes, and Bucha Statues of Luang Por Plai, and was issued in Nuea Tong Kam (solid gold) Nuea Ngern (solid silver), Nuea Nava (9 sacred metals), Nuea Ngern Yuang (ancient Chinese Silver), Nuea Tong Lueang (Brass), and Nuea Kong (Temple Gong).

The version with stamp on front face can hence not really be expected to encounter, for it is doubtful that any of the only 16 owners in the world would wish to part with it.
The amulets of Luang Por Plai of Wat Kampaeng (2408 – 2489 BE), are world renowned, for their powerful Kong Grapan Maha Ud magic, and highly preferred for their traditional classic style, as well as immensely revered for his Magical Powers. He was seen as an equal to the Great Luang Phu Iam of Wat Hnang.
The Rian Lor Luang Por Plai is one of the ‘Rian Yord Niyom’ preferred amulets of true appreciation society collectors and of course, the prized possession for protection and auspicious blessing, for the devotees of LP Plai. It was made in various editions during Luang Por Plai’s lifetime. and is sometimes remade on rare occasions to this day, as a ‘Yorn Yuk’ memorial replica amulet, by the temple of Wat Kampaeng, due to its immense fame and high demand from devotees.

This is because the Rian Lor amulets of Luang Por Plai carry so many stories of Miracles with them from the many occurrences over the decades. Hence, many people seek to wear one, despite the elevated price of many of his amulets. People’s belief in the protective power of all editions of the Rian Lor Luang Por Plai. Luang Por Plai was lovingly known in his day by devotees as ‘Khun Pol Haeng Fang Tonburi” which insinuates his immense power of Maha Amnaj, Maha Ud,Grapan and Klaew Klaad protective Magic.
Luang Por Plai was born in Bang Bon in Thonburi on a Tuesday in the year 2408 BE, the son of Mr Maekh and Mrs Hem (Surname; Tong Hluea). He had 9 siblings and helped his parents on the farm as a child. There came a time when the great Luang Por Kong of Wat Lawaek Pasi Jaroen came, to finance and perform restorations at the temple of Wat Kampaeng (at that time still named ‘Wat Sawang Arom). Luang Por Kong built a school-room to teach the local children. Luang Por Plai’s father thus took him to be educated under the tutelage of Luang Por Kong.
Luang Por Plai
Luang Por Plai had to both work on the farm and go to school, so was not always able to attend school every day, but with great effort and the fact that he was an intelligent child, he managed to advance faster than all the other children in his class.
This made Luang Por Kong of course love him very much for his great effort, and forged a bond between the teacher and the student. When Luang Por Plai reached the age of 20, he then went to Wat Kampaeng and was Ordained by Luang Por Kong himself as Upachaya ordaining Officer, and given the Ordained Surname of ‘Jantasaro’.
Luang Por Plai would help Luang Por Kong to teach the Samaneras and Orphans in the school and help with temple duties, until in the year 2430 BE, Luang Por Kong had reason to disrobe, and Luang Por Plai was asked to become the next Abbot of the temple.
Luang Por Plai continued to teach Samaneras and even visit other temples to teach, and even called in teachers from many different apprenticeship professions to teach the local children abilities that would give them a profession when they grew up, and not have to worry for sustenance.

Luang Por Plai released his first official edition of the Rian Lor alchemical metal Guru Monk coin amulets in the year 2478 BE, with three main models, as a Pim ha Liam 5 sided amulet, a Roop Khai oval shaped, and a Rian Job rounded arched shape.
Luang Por Plai was known to be possessed with powerful mastery of Wicha Akom, which he had received from Luang Por Kong, which was revealed to be extremely powerful after he began to release his alchemical metal Rian Lor Boran amulets.
In the year 2485 BE, a terrible storm flooded and destroyed the cemetery and funeral installations of the temple, so Luang Por Plai decided to raise funds with the making another edition, of the Rian Lor Boran, and repaired the cemetery, and built new installations.
During the ceremony, it was not possible to light any fireworks, and many devotees found that their guns were not able to shoot. This then made the ceremony legendary for the miraculous Maha Ud Gunstopper Magic for which Luang Por Plai’s amulets are so renowned.
Luang Por Plai passed away in the year 2489 BE. Since his passing, on special occasions of commemoration, an edition of Luang Por Plai amulets is released very rarely at Wat Kampaeng, all of which are highly prized collectors items and reside in the glass cases of personal museums, and around the necks of old local devotees and of course, wealthier collectors.

Pra Pid Ta Pra Pid Ta Hlang Baeb Nuea Pong Jum Rak – LP Kaew Wat Krua Wan
LP Kaew built Wat Krua Wan after arriving on Tudong in Chonburi Province, around the year 2365 BE, during the time when Pra Jao Thaksin Maharaj was restoring Siam to freedom from Invaders, and he found the ruins of a temple that had been destroyed during the wartime. It is said that LP Kaew was born as the son of a fisherman family in the year 2337 BE, in the province of Petchburi.
LP Kaew and his famous Pidta of Wat Pak Tale and Wat Krua Wan
After he came of age he ordained as a Samanera and stayed at Wat Pak Tale, until becoming a highly revered monk of the district. After many years, he traveled on Tudong Wanndering and came to pass through the shoreline areas of Chonburi Province, where he stayed in the forest.
The Local folk heard of the monk in the forest, and began to visit. They were filled with faith by LP Kaew’s Dhamma teachings, and he developed a large following, who then assisted him to raise up the temple we know today as Wat Krua Wan. The reason Luang Phu Kaew called the temple ‘Wat Krua Wan’ (also spelled ‘Wat Kruea Wan’), was because there was much Kruea Thao Hlong vines growing around the area of the temple.
An all time Pra Niyom High End Classic Ancient Amulet, renowned for its power and status from Luang Phu Kaew, who first began his legendary of Wat Pak Tale in Petchburi (Later moved to Wat Krua Wan in Chonburi), with certificate of authenticity included issued by the Samakom Song Pra Tae Mueang Siam Association of Amulets of Siam Thailand.

The Pra Pid ta Luang Phu Kaew, is known for its power being made from Luang Phu Kaew’s ancient and powerful sacred Muan Sarn. There is a famous tale of the Billionaire Chawapon Rerm Wanich, buying a number of Pra Pid Ta Pim Lek Hlang Riab (plain rear face small model) amulets of Luang Phu Kaew, for a sum of 10 million Baht each (about 350,000$US)!
It is said that the only thing harder to find than the Pid Ta of Luang Phu Kaew, is the Photo of Luang Phu Kaew himself. However, despite these true stories, that some millionaires pay immensely high prices for such amulets, the standard price which true collectors and aficionados consider to be universal ranges between the 1000$ for a less well kept or lesser preferred model with or without certificate, to 11000$ for a top class prizewinner.
Luang Phu Kaew was one of a group of Master Monks who all possessed and practiced the Wicha of making Pra Pid Ta, all of whom are famous names, such as Luang Phu Jeen of Wat Ta Lad, Luang Phu Pu (2351 -2361 BE), Luang Porn Daeng of Wat Ang Sila, and the great Luang Por Plord of Wat Pak Tale, who was the premiere apprentice to Luang Phu Kaew, and famous in his own right for his famous Look Om amulets which he made with the remaining powders inherited from Luang Phu Kaew, as well as adding powders of his other Kroo Ba Ajarn such as Luang Por Tong Sukh’s powders of Luang Phu Iam (Wat Sapan Sung).
Luang Phu Kaew was born around 2337 BE. This is known by devotees who met and worshiped Luang Phu Gaew as he appeared on Tudong wandering in Khao Bandai it district of Petchburi, to escape being asked to become abbot of Wat Pak Tale, as the current abbot had just passed away, and he preferred the forest wandering and meditation, to administration of the worldly aspects of running a temple. Luang Phu Gaew wandered onwards until he came to rest at Khao Luang Temple, and saw it was in total disarray.
He thus rounded up devotees to help and slowly restored the temple to original condition, and the local devotees begged him to be the abbot of Wat Khao Luang. But in the eyes of Luang Phu Kaew, this was tantamount to chasing him away, as he was not inclined to accept limitations on the practices and austerities of Tudong. So Luang Phu Gaew wandered off again and disappeared into the forests on Tudong.
Later after soome years of disappearance and no documentation of his life during those years, he later appeared at Wat Krua Wan, where he stayed, and became the great Master of Wicha Pra Pid Ta of the Chonburi Province who is conbsidered the top number one master of all, despite the absence of a full biography and a lack of knowledge about the full details of his life. His Wicha was passed to great Masters who he was associated with all of whom became Top Masters of Historical Fame in their own Right, with some of the greatest names being his apprentices.

Below; a Historical Photo of Luang Por Nueang, as he performs maintenance of the mortal remains of his Kroo Ba Ajarn, Luang Por Kong, of Wat Bang Gaporm
Luang Por Nueang studied hard and attained his Masters Degree in Dhamma in the year 2479 BE, and in this same time period had also developed immense mastery in Vipassana Kammathana practices, and Puttakom (Buddha Magic). He advanced very rapidlu due to extremely diligent efforts, and putting in his utmost perseverance in both his academic study and his manifest practices. He was also fortunate to have the Great Luang Por Kong of Wat Bang Gaporm as one of his Kroo Ba Ajarn in Buddha Magic, whose Rian Luang Por Kong Coin holds position within the Top Five ‘Benjapakee’ Monk Coin amulets of all time.
Apart from receiving Wicha from Luang Por Kong, Luang Por Nueang also received Wicha from both Luang Por Chaem at Wat Jula Mani, and the great Luang Por Jai, of Wat Sadej (maker of the world famous Takrut Look Om of Immortal Fame). And so Luang Por Nueang was able to become a Master of many Wicha from these greta Kroo Ba Ajarn, and through his own diligent practice was able to strengthen them with his own meditations.
Luang Por Nueang eventually became Abbot of Wat Jula Mani, and showed his prowess was not only in Wicha Akom, and his own practice, but that he was also able in worldly matters, by administrating and improving the temple facilities, which brought the temple of Wat Jula Mani to become the important and prominent temple it is today. For these achievements, he was awarded by Royal decree the status of Abbot Pra Kroo Gowit Samutrakun Sanyabadtr Chan To Superior Administrator, in the year 2496 BE. He was onece again raised in status to Abbot Pra Kroo Gowit Samutrakun Sanyabadtr Chan To Fai Vipassana Tura (Head of Vipassana Practice teachings) in the year 2517 BE.
Wat Jula Mani is an ancient temple, which was built around the period between 2172 BE and 2190 BE, in the time of the times of the great Ruler Jao Prasat Tong. It was originally called ‘Wat Mae Jao Tip’, and is a temple of Historical importance related to the Bang Chang branch of the Chakri Dynasty family lineage.

The temple originally was built with teak wooden buildings, which rotted over time, and so it was in the time of Luang Por Nueang when they were repeaired and replaced by much more long lasting constructions. This was also one of the factors which led to Luang Por Nueang becoming the most beloved and well remembered Abbot of Wat Jula Mani, and for which the local devotees loved him so much, for his merits.

There is a tale of Luang Por Nueang once attending an examination with one of his Kroo Ba Ajarn in his studies, where his examinining teacher asked him to write down some Numbers using Khom Agkhara and display his ability to predict lottery. Luang Por Nueang wrote some numbers onto a piece of parchment, and his examining teacher took the parchment and placed it inside the safe at the temple. When the day came for the lottery numbers to be published, he opened the safe and looked, and it turned out that the numbers which Luang Por Nueang had written were the first prize lottery winning numbers.

Luang Por Tob Wat Chang Phueak
Luang Por Tob was born on third of March 2424 BE. In the year 2445 BE, he came of age, and was ordained as a fully fledged adult Bhikkhu in the Buddha Sasanā, at Wat Silāmōng. Pra Kroo Mueang was his Upachāya, and Pra Ajarn Parn as his Pra Gammawājājārn, and Pra Ajarn Si as his Pra Anusāwanājārn.
He was given the Ordained name of ’Tammabanyõ’, which means ‘He who has Great Knowledge in Dhamma’. After his ordination as a Bhikkhu, he traveled to practice Vipassanā Kammathān and Buddha Magic (Wityākom/Wicha) with Pra Ajarn Parn, and once more excelled to the point of reaching adept mastery of the various Wicha taught to him by Pra Ajarn Parn.
After completing his studies of Wicha with Pra Ajarn Parn. Luang Por Tob then went on Tudong forest wandering, to practice solitude and develop his Kammathāna practice. During the time he spent on Tudong, he met many great Masters, and learned their Magical Wicha.
During the times of Tudong, Luang Por Tob met and became very close friends with the great Luang Por Khien Tamma Ragkhidto, who was one of the Great Famous Masters of the Petchaburn Province in that Era. Luang Por Tob and Luang Por Khien became very close friends and companions.
Luang Por Tob, made merits building temples, Sala Bprian Dhamma Halls, Uposatha Shrine Rooms for temples in need, and restored many shrines, buildings and delapidated temple facilities scattered around the province. He made countless merits both with worldly acts, and with the spiritual teachings of the Buddha-Dhamma, and the memory of his great deeds remains in the minds of the devotees to this day, and has passed into the living memory of the current generation of Devotees.
When Luang Por Tob went on Tudong to the municipality of Chon Daen, and stayed in the forest close to the locality, the local Buddhist Folk of Chon Daen came to pay reverence, and asked Luang Por Tob to build the temple of Wat pra Puttabat Khao Noi, which was at the time was only a small Samnak Songk Sangha station in the forest.
Luang Por Tob accepted and built Kuti Hut dormitories for the Monks, an Uposatha Shrine Room, a Sala Bprian, and improved the facilities of the temple, transforming it into a large and popular temple for the local community, which was then raised in official status from the status of ’Samnak Songk’ and registered as a ‘Wat’ (fully fledged Temple).
Luang Por Tob passed away on the 14th of March 2519 BE, on the fourth phase of the fourth lunar month, at the age of 95 years old, after 75 years of ordained life.
The current abbot of Wat Chang Phueak (Wat Chon Daen), Pra Kroo Wimol Pacharagij, who is a direct transmission lineage Looksit of Luang Por Tob, says that Luang Por Tob had given instructions before his death, that his body should not be cremated, because one day in the future, his body would become of use to the temple in some way.
So after his death, the Looksit of Luang Por Tob took his body, and placed it inside a glass coffin. The provincial offices then built a Roop Muean statue of Luang Por Tob, and a shrine area for its placement, so that Devotees could worship Luang Por Tob’s image and his Relics.
In the present Era, Wat Chang Phueak (Wat Chon Daen) is a place where Buddhists from around South-East Asia and the rest of the World come in Pilgrimage and to sight-see. Hundreds and Thousands of devotees visit the temple every day to pay reverence to the relics of Luang Por Tob, and beseech his blessings. Luang Por Tob’s body has not deteriorated, and has calcified to become stone over the years, and remains in the same condition as it was when he was first placed into the glass coffin.
Each year, the temple performs a ritual to change his robes. The used robes which are removed, are cut up into pieces and given to the Devotees to use as articles of Faith, Good Fortune and Protection of the Blessings of Luang Por Tob.

Highly preferred for his In Koo, Pra Rahu, and Pha Yant Sacred Geometry yantra Cloth Spells. Of the Pha Yant he was especially renowned for his Pha Yant Ma Saep Nang Lady-Horse images.
Luang Phu was born in 2434 BE, in the country into a family of farmers and market traders, In those days, the only way to get any schooling in the countryside was to stay in a temple and learn with the Monks, and so, at the age of nearly 9 years old, his father took him to live at the nearby temple, to learn to read and write. After about 3 years. Luang Phu could read and write fluently enough, and so he was able to ordain into the Sangha as a Samanera Novice Monk in the year 2445 BE
Luang Phu reached the age to be ordained as a fully fledged Bhikkhu in the Buddha Sasana in the year 2455 and was ordained on the 5th of May of that year as a Bhikkhu, at 13:15 hours at Wat Ban Baen Temple. Luang Phu then began to practice Khom Sanskrit Agkhara and Wicha, and within a very short period of time became so adept that he could chant every single line of Agkhara from memory with great aptitude.
Pra Kroo Gantiya was his Upachaya Ordaining Officer, and Pra Ajarn Bpan was his Pra Gammawājājarn (Prompter). Pra Atigarn Bpum was his Pra Anusawanājarn (Witness). Luang Phu was given the Chāyā (official Monks Name) of Prohma Sēno. Luang Phu Kroo Ba Wang then stayed on at Wat Ban Baen in Lampoon for a period of 2 years more. After this, Luang Phu Kroo Ba Wang then moved to stay at Wat Ban Hmueang Jee, which was in his home area where he was born.
Luang Phu then continued to study and practice Wicha Akom and Khom Agkhara, for a further three years, until he became inspired to take up the practice of Tudong Solitary Forest wandering, and gain experience in Kammathana.
Luang Phu then travelled through the thick forest area of Pha Teub, on is way towards Chiang Saen, and stopped in the forest to practice for 6 months. Once he reached Chiang Saen, he stayed around the area practicing for some years, until he decided to travel towards Prae Province, where he finally arrived and stayed at the temple of Wat Den Chai.
He stayed at this temple to master the various Sorcert Methods of the Region, so that he would be able to perform Powerful Incantations enabling him to cast spells and blessings to offer protection, happiness and prosperirty to the fold, and to send metta and merits to the Nature Spirits of the Nether Worlds, with Compassionate Mercy Magic.
Once he had mastered this Wicha, he then set forth once more, and practiced Tudong, until he came to rest at a very peaceful place in the forest called ‘Pha Den Gradtay’, which was very auspicious in energy. There was a small village nearby which was impoverished, and Luang Phu then decided to build a temple with the help of the locals. But Luang Phu was first called back by locals of the temple at Wat Dton Tong, so he agreed and went backl to assist the with their needs.
After one year helping them, he was able to return to Pha Den Gradtay, and built three Kuti Huts and invited some other monks to come and stay, and assist in developing the temple. Then in the yeat 2508 Luang Phu Kroo Ba Wang began to build the Uposadha Shrine Room and the locals of the surrounding areas began to hear of his merits, and flock to the temple to make donations and assist.
The Uposadha was then finished in the the year 2510 BE. Luang Phu became famous for both is great ability to finish the temple of Wat ban den in Miraclulously short timespan, and also for his many Wicha, including Horasart (Astrology), Amulet making, Maha Sanaeh and Metta Maha Niyom Maha Lap Magic, and his ability to use Candle Magic to eliminate Bad Karma.

Luang Por Guay’s amulets have reached the highest level of respect and collectorship in their history now, and are considered to have noticeable effects that are felt be everybody who owns and wears one of his amulets. The stories of confirmation of their power are more than can be counted, and his Great Patipata and Exceedingly Powerful applied methods of Sorcery are a large part of what attributes to their power.
His amulets are now extremely rare to find because those who already own any will never wish to part with them again, and they are hence becoming one of the rarest kind of amulets to find these days. Usually this happens because of speculation by the collector scene, but in the case of Luang Por Guay’s amulets, it has happened primarily for their Sacred Value, much much more than for their collectorship and artistic value, which is of course also extremely high.
Luang Por Guay is famous for his immensely diligent and complex manner of empowering (Pluk Sek) amulets, which involved daily empowerments at various times of day namely at dawn, morning, midday, afternoon, evening and midnight.
Luang Por Guay was the 6th abbot of Wat Kositaram until his passing on the 12th April 2522 BE, and remains one of the most popular Sak Yant Thai Temple Tattoo Masters and Amulet Makers in living memory. After his ordination in July 2467 BE, he spent his first early years preaching to the devotees. He would often preach the Vessantara Jataka story of how the Buddha attained the perfection of generosity.
Luang Por Guay empowering amulets at Wat Kositaram
It was a very sad story and he always told it so well, that the devotees would not sit in the Sala hall to listen, rather sit outside it under the trees. Some would sit and cry because of the things he would preach. Most preachers of the Vessantara Jataka would use jokes and anecdotes to soften the seriosity of the story, but Luang Por Guay was not inclined to joke around, and would tell the story in a serious manner. After a time Luang Por Guay realised it was not his vocation to preach to people, and slipped away to focus on learning magical Wicha.
He began by studying the magical art of herbalism, for healing and medicinal treatments, as well as for making Magical Sacred Muan Sarn Powderswith the Great Hmor Khien. Hmor Khien was a spirit doctor who was able to prevent epidemics and cure ‘Roke Ha’ (Cholera). In that time there was a massive Cholera Epidemic and most of the other doctors and healers of the region had died from the epidemic, and only Hmor Khien was able to assist and heal the people. So Luang Por Guay of course was extremely interested to attain the knowledge and mastery of his Wicha.
Later in the year 2472, Luang Por Guay traveled to Wat Wankhorn to study the Pariyatti Dhamma (theoretical Dhamma) to improve his understanding of the path to enlightenment and in his own practice methods, as well as to understand the deeper meanings of the Buddha-Dhamma, and penetrate them. He learned under the Abbot Luang Phu Ma, but just before reaching his doctorate, Luang PorGuay became very ill and was not able to finish his exams. Luang Por Guay saw no need to get the official qualification papers, for he had indeed learned what he had learned with or without the certificate of doctorate, so he decided that was enough Dhamma theory, and that he would set out once more to seek Wicha, and to begin the practice of Vipassana Kammathana and Tudong.
Lp Guay then later traveled to learn Wicha with Luang Por Sri at Wat Pra Prang in Singhburi, who was a Great Kammatana Master of Vipassana at that time, and considered the most adept practitioner in Singhburi Province. It was here that Luang Por Guay learned the Wicha Tam Hwaen secrets of making magical rings, which indeed is the Wicha Hwaen of Luang Por Sri. Under the belly of the ring, would be the Khom Sanskrit Agkhara letters ‘I Dti’ embossed, which is of course the famous Hwaen Yant Idti. Luang Por Guay learned various other Wicha as he was practicing under Luang Por Sri.
In continuation, Luang Por traveled on to Wat Nong Ta Gaew in Supanburi, where he planted a Dton Samor ‘Anchor Tree’ (Terminalia bellirica). It is told that the Great Luang Por Saman once went to stay at Wat Nong Dta Gaew, and took a cockerel and placed it in Luang Por Guays tree (chickens sleep in trees). Apparently, the Cockerel refused to sleep all night in this tree. Nobody knows what kind of Wicha Luang Por Guay placed into the tree, but for a Cockerel to refuse to sleep when it is sitting in its most natural sleeping habitat, reveals that there was something unnatural about Luang Por Guays tree.
Luang Por Guay remained practicing at the temple of Wat Nong Dta Gaew for about a year
After this, he moved on to stay for a year at the temple of Wat Nong Khaem in Chainat Province. Whilst he was there, he learned traditional medicine with Yome Buan, a Lay Master from Ban Nong Khaem, and he then continued his studies with Hmor Yai in Ban Bang Nam Pra, close by to Ban Nong Khaem.
The discovery of the Dtamra Grimoire;
Luang Por Guay made friends with a monk at Ban Bang Nam Pra temple called Lp Jaem. One day, Pra Jaem found an ancient black parchment grimoire (‘Samut Khoi’) in the wilderness. But he was not able to bring the book, because it had some kind of protective spell or Deity watching over it, and merely told the story to Luang Por Guay. So Pra Jaem invited Luang Por Guay to come and have a look to see with his own eyes. When the two monks arrived back at the location where the book was hidden beneath the tree stump, Luang Por Guay saw that Pra Jaem had told the truth, the Grimoire was indeed there.
There were signs of someone having brought flowers, incense and candles to make Bucha with to the Grimoire and placed them beneath the tree stump. So Luang Por Guay lit the candles and the incense, and prayed; “If the Devas who protect this book wish me to take it and preserve the Wicha, then let this incense stick burn out completely”. But the incense stick did not burn completely, so Luang por Guay began to pray out loud again, and this time spoke the words; “If you let me take the Dtamra with me, I promise I shall only use it for the benefit of the temple and help all Sentient Beings”.
This time, all three of the incense sticks burned completely to the ground. Luang Por then performed ‘Gruad Nam’ (the pouring of water to dedicate the fruits of ones merits to the dead – a story covered in Buddha Magic Issue 3), and dedicated the fruits of his merits to the Master of this Dtamra he had discovered, and the Deities who protected it. He then performed the ceremony to invite the Grimoire to come with him to the temple.
There was a story circulating after this, that someone once took the Dtamra home with them and put it in their room, but the household experienced much disaster, sickness and even death, so the person had taken it and placed it under the tree stump.
When he heard the story, Luang Por Guay opened the book and began to read it, and he found a passage which mentioned that it was forbidden to take into anybod’ys house at all, if not, there would be great loss and misfortune. Luang Por Guay then began to learn the various Yant and Wicha, memorizing and practicing the magic spells within the ancient Grimoire.
This is where he got a great deal of his powerful Wicha from. The Grimoire is still there at the temple. The cover says ‘Kroo Raeng’ in red on it.
Few people have been lucky enough to open this Dtamra, but It was written from someone who has opened it, that the Grimoire contains hundreds of Yant and magic Kata. One extremely powerful Kata within the Grimoire is the “Pra Pra Putta Jao Chana Marn” (Mantra of the Buddha Conquering Mara), which is a spell so powerful that it is forbidden for a layperson to recite. This Montr Kata has both ways to perform white magic and also harmful black magic.
Luang Por Guay was also a very famous Sak Yant Tattoo Master renowned for Kong Grapan Chadtri and Klaew Klaad powers. In addition, he would perform empowerments during the various ‘Reuks’ (Astrological Influentian moments).
This was done to bring total coverage of protection and fortuitous blessings to all who might wear and Bucha his amulets, namely the ‘Reuks Mongkol’ Buddhist Auspicious alignments, the ‘Reuks Jone’ (Gangster Alignments) Inauspicious Alignments, and the ‘Reuks Bun Paya Marn’ Demonic Influential Alignments. This means that it did not matter who wore his amulets, Good people would wear them, Gangsters would wear them, anybody could wear them without loss of magical effect.
Encyclopaedic work on the life and amulets of LP Guay
Luang Por Guay passed away, on the 12 April 2522 at the age of 75 years old. He passed on in peaceful recline. The year before he died, he fell ill, and was carried to Paya Tai hospital for examination. The examining Doctor concluded that Luang Por Guay was suffering from food deficiency since over 30 years, and gave him some protein supplements for a period of a whole month, which turned out to still not be enough for his physical needs.
But when Luang Por returned to the temple, he continued his habit of eating only one meal a day without paying attention to the warnings. It seemed that since his return from hospital though, that his casting of magic spells and empowerment of amulets had become even more effervescent and intense. He seemed very strong physically as far as outside appearances went. In the year 2522, Luang Por wrote down two notes in his calendar;
Pra Luang Por Guay marked the day he would become ill with blue pen, and the day he died was marked in red pen. The days were the 11th March, and the 11th April 2522 BE. Luang Por had written the Pra Kata Namo Dta Bord, and the words “I Pra Guay Na Dtandto Namo Dtandti Dtandti Dtandto Namo Dtan Dtan – will die on the 11th April
As the 11th came nearer, Luang Por Guay fell ill, but it was not possible to detect any fever or recognizable illness – he could not eat, and would even spit his rice out and refuse any more, instead grabbing a piece of Tagrud and inscribing spells. In the night he would hold the Sai Sincana cord and empower amulets. He would inscribe lottery numbers on the palm of his hand, and sometimes show to Looksit with Choke Lap who came to pay last respects. As the tenth arrived, everybody came to await his passing, but on the 11th he was still alive.
Some of the temple committee suggested that his Kuti was full of magic and even images of the Kroo, perhaps no Deities could enter to take him. So they moved Luang Por Guay to the chanting room, where he opened his eyes in farewell for the last time, placed his hands together, and then, something amazing happened; The temple bell fell down from where it was hanging, and crashed to the floor ringing out loud with a resounding echo. The Looksit then realised that Luang Por Guay had passed on in this moment, and tuned to look at the time. It was exactly 7:55 am on the 12th April.
The 12th of April every year is the date for paying reverence to Luang Por Guay at Wat Kositaram, where Looksit gather each year to pray to Luang Por Guay and ask for his blessings to continue to protect them and improve their lives.
