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.

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.

The Pra Pid Ta of the temple of Wat Sapan Sung are known for their powerful magic, with 4 Generations of Great Master Monks as Abbots continuing the Dtamra of Pra Pid Ta amulet making, which consists of one of the most complex methods of making sacred powders in the Dtamra Saiyasart Ancient Grimoire of Sorcery. Luang Phu Glin was thr first inheritor of the Dtamra to receive the Wicha Pra Pid Ta directly from Luang Phu Iam, which was soon after also passed on to Luang Por Tong Sukh. The Pra Pid Ta of Luang Phu Glin are considered equally powerful to those of his Mentor Luang Phu Iam, because during that time when LP Glin was making the amulets, he would always invite Luang Phu Iam to assist in the empowerment of the amulets, which means that both masters performed blessings in the Luang Phu Glin Series of Amulets.
Pra Pid Ta Pim Chalud Yai LP Glin Wat Sapan Sung
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. 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. Luang Phu Iam Passed away in 2439 BE, leaving Luang Phu Glin as the new abbot and caretaker of the temple
Pra Pid Ta Wat sapan Sung Pim Chalud Yai Long Rak Daeng Luang Phu Glin
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 lacquer on them and were pure powders. His devotees would then have them treated with lacquer of their own accord after receiving the amulet, and also sometimes the Samanera Novice Monks would help and perform the task of lacquering the amulets
his successor Luang Por Tong Sukh and his predecessor Luang Phu Iam however, would more often than not dip the Pra Pid Ta in lacquer as a protective layer themselves.
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.
A most attractively designed Rian coin type amulet in Nuea Tong Daeng, that has become a classic favoured amulet of the devotees of many masters, all of who were involved in the empowerment of this amulet. The amulet is however officially contained within the Tamniab Pantheons of Luang Phu To and of Wat Ko Non, despite so many other masters being involved in the empowerments made in two ceremonies at Wat Hnang and Wat Ko Non.

The Pidta amulets were taken from Wat Hnang to be re-blessed and re-released during the 2514 BE Look Nimit Arahant Ball burial Ceremony Celebrating the New Uposatha Shrine Room at Wat Ko Non.
