Pra Somdej Thaan Singh 2495 BE Niyom Rare Master Class Amulet, of the Great Luang Phu Nak, Wat Rakang Kositaram.
The Pra Somdej Thaan Singh is one of the very rarest of all amulets of Luang Phu Nak, and this particular exhibit, is in Absolutely Pristine Condition. This exhibit possesses ‘Nuea Graeng’ (time-hardened and condensed Muan Sarn clay), which is considered by amulet aficionados an aspect of great importance in the Dtamra Pra Somdej of the lineage of Abbots and Guru Masters of Wat Rakang Temple.
An all time classic and extremely rare preferred Pim Niyom amulet of this Master. The famous and highly preferred Pra Somdej Thaan Thaan Singh Pim Yai Masterclass amulet of Luang Phu Nak, of Wat Rakang Kositaram, was made in 2495 BE, using old broken amulets and sacred powders from the repository of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri Wat Rakang Kositaram. This exhibit has a very marbled stone like relief and is highly condensed with defined relief, which is referred to in the special vocabulary of the amulet community as ‘Nuea Graeng Doo Ngaay’ meaning ‘stone hard and easily recognisable’. The front face of the Pra Somdej Thaan Singh features a Buddha image sat meditating on top of a very high and tapered escalating Dais, with three tiers, and decorative legs on each tier of the dais, which are known as ‘Thaan Singh’ meaning ‘Lion Dais’
The Pra Somdej amulets made by Luang Phu Nak contained a massive quantity of crushed up Pra Somdej amulets made by Somdej Dto Prohmrangsri of Wat Rakang, which LP Nak had collected over the years from Looksit who brought their broken amulets to return to the Temple, as well as a sackful he found in the roof of the Prayer Room (‘Bote’ in Thai). They are thus the second choice of those wishing to possess the magic of Pra Somdej Wat Rakang of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri, but who can neither afford, nor find such unreachable amulets, which are only seen hanging around the necks of Millionaires. Luang Phu Nak believed that the Pra Somdej amulets made by Somdej Dto had inimitable magical qualities and special power within the Muan Sarn (sacred powder used to make the amulets), and because of the meditative power of Somdej Dto who blessed them.
Therefore apart from being made by one of Thailands great Master Gaeji Ajarn, and being an authentic ancient Wat Rakang Amulet from one of the Great Abbots of this Temple, it is also Doubly Sacred, for the fact that it contains original Somdej Dto Wat Rakang Amulets in the Sacred Powder mixture too. It is said by many, that Luang Phu Nak made the Pra Somdej Thaan Singh in emulation of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri’s legendary Pra Somdej made for Wat Lakorn Tam Temple
