Pra Kroo Aphai Sopon (Por Tan Daeng), formerly the Abbot of Chana District in Songkhla Province, hails from Kelantan, Malaysia. He is a direct disciple of Luang Por Kron from Bang Sae Temple, Malaysia. Por Tan Daeng has gained renown for creating highly revered amulets over the years, all of which are considered rare due to his status as the first apprentice (Looksit Aek) of the esteemed Luang Por Kron. He possesses a profound mastery of the magical Wicha associated with the Phra Pid Ta amulets of Wat Bang Sae in Malaysia.
The Pra Pidta Bang Sae comes in various types, made from sacred Muan Sarn powders and various models (Pim). These amulets are renowned for their potent magical properties and serve as excellent alternatives to the now exceedingly rare Pra Pid Ta amulets created by Luang Por Kron. They are not only powerful but also considered exquisite pieces of miniature sacred art. Collectors and aficionados hold the Pra Pid Ta Pim Wat Bang Sae in high regard, thanks to the powerful consecration ceremony conducted at Khok Sai Temple. The ceremony witnessed the participation of numerous revered monks, including Por Tan Daeng, Ajarn Sri Ngern (abbot of Wat Don Sala), Por Tan Khun Thong, Luang Por Sukh of Wat Duyong, Por Tan Chin of Wat Mueang Yala, Luang Por Hwaan, and many other esteemed monks from the Southern Provinces.
Luang Por Tan Daeng has since passed away, leaving behind a legacy of reverence. He was known for his straightforward nature and unwavering compassion. Whether conducting ordinations or rituals, he maintained strict adherence to the sanctity of Buddhist clergy. Por Tan Daeng also held the position of preceptor (Upachaya Ordaining Officer), a special designation granted to monks allowed to ordain others at their discretion.
Por Tan Daeng was renowned for his diligence and rigorous assessment of individuals seeking ordination as monks. He scrutinized their intentions, safeguarding the purity of Buddhism (Buddha-Sasana) by preventing those with ulterior motives from ordaining. Only those with sincere intentions were permitted to undergo the ordination ceremony, which required them to practice as lay practitioners in white clothing for an extended period to prove their commitment. Por Tan Daeng is revered as the Lineage Continuance Master of Luang Por Kron from Wat Bang Sae, ensuring the preservation and propagation of the Wicha Pra Pid Ta of Wat Bang Sae, initially established by Luang Por Kron.
About Luang Por Kron;
Luang Por Kron was referred to as ‘Tok Raja’ by Malays, a title signifying equality with the Sangha Raja. This name stemmed from a legend where a powerful Sultan of Kelantan had a daughter afflicted by a malevolent black magic spell. Despite seeking help from doctors and psychologists, her condition remained unchanged. Even the Muslim witch doctors failed to break the curse with their magic.
However, Luang Por Kron possessed the ability to heal her and restore her sanity. This miraculous act earned him the honorary title of Tok Raja from the Sultan, signifying his equal status with the Sangha Raja. Luang Por Kron’s preferred amulets include Pra Pid Ta Nuea Pong Kluk Rak and the Rian Roop Dork Jik coin amulet.
Pra Pid Ta amulets, as well as Pra Pid Ta in the form of Pha Yant and Bucha statues, have been crafted as objects of reverence and protection in Thailand for centuries. Artisans of that era created various styles and interpretations, drawing inspiration from different periods of Buddhist art and sculpture. Various deities were incorporated into the Pra Pid Ta posture, symbolizing the act of ‘covering the eyes.’ These amulets could close 7 or 9 orifices, with the former referred to as ‘Pra Pid Sadtatawarn’ and the latter as ‘Pra Pid Navatawarn.’
The Pra Pid Ta is renowned for its ‘Maha Ud’ (invincibility) and ‘Kong Grapan’ (gunstopping) properties. It is also crafted as a wealth-bringing amulet, referred to as ‘Pra Pid Ta Maha Lap.’ To enhance its resonance for wealth attraction and auspicious blessings, ancient artisans sometimes incorporated the image of the Sangkajjaiyana Buddha of riches and happiness into the Pid Ta posture.

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.

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.

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.
Rian Job Luang Por Plai Nuea Ngern Code Wor-Gor-3 2543 BE Wat Kampaeng. Sacred Guru Monk Image of Luang Por Plai, in Solid Silver Magical Alchemical alloy made from ancient sacred silver artifacts, smelted with mercurial substance, with code Wor-Gor 3 stamp on rear face. 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.

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 solid silver version of the Rian Lor Job Gor Por 3 was released in two versions, distinguished by the code stamp, of which only 16 amulets were stamped with the Wor-Gor 3 on the front face, with the remaining amulets in silver receiving the Wor-Gor 3 stamp on the rear face. 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.

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 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.

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.
In the year 2513, time caught up with Luang Phu and he became ill, and began to weaken with age, and became unable to travel, and stayed for the rest of is life until his passing at Wat Ban Den in the year 2516 BE
A rare item indeed from the Great Luang Phu Jiam, Khmer Master Monk of the Surin Province – Four pairs of Takrut (totalling 8) bound onto a cord belt to wear around the waist, for Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud Protection, with the Power of Prayer Water Immersion in Traimas (3 month Trimester) Blessing imbued within.
This compendium magic belt is composed of four pairs of two Takrut Yantra Foil scroll spells measuring 2.5 Inches each in length, which were immersed in Holy Water for 3 Months, receiving Incantations throughout their traditional Traimas empowerment blessing.
The amulets of Luang Phu Jiam (especially his monk coins and Takrut), became very popular with the Thai Armed Forces, after various incidents of soldiers who wore the amulet having escaped death in unexplainable circumstances, which caused the Takrut to receive news coverage.
Above Image;Batallion Commander shows his 2522 BE Second Edition Takrut Koo Rian Luang Phu Jiam amulet off as he tells that the whole regiment wear this amulet as their preferred protector, due to their faith in Luang Phu Jiam and his powers of Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud. Another soldier is seen below in a parade, wearing Luang Phu Jiam’s famous ‘Takrut Koo Rian Luang Por Jiam Run Sorng Chae Nam Mont’ amulet.
The Takrut See Koo (Takrut Paed Dork), is bound to a cord belt for easy wearing, and to cover all eight directions of time and space, covering and protecting you from all directions at the same time. The takrut are covered with a transparent tube but left open ended for the magic to flow into the skin, and the cord which passes through it shall carry its energies into the skin of the devotee. This is the method used in traditional olden days fashion, where the amulet should touch the skin directly, or through a suitable medium (such as the cord). This derives from the fact that olden days folk believed to allow the power of the amulet to work with maximum power, through skin contact (‘Sampat Phiw’).

Biography and Patipatā of Luang Phu Jiam Adtisayō, Wat Intarasukaram (Wat Nong Yaw), in Surin Province.
The legendary Luang Phu Jiam Adtisayō (Pra Kroo Udom Worawaet), was a Surin Province master monk, who was incorruptible in his diligence of practice of the Dhamma Vinaya, and the ascetic life of the mendicant monk.
He disassociated himself from all worldly attachments, focusing on the truth of impermanence, the unsatisfactoriness of refuging in impermanent things, and the not-self nature of all things, to attain enlightenment through liberation of the awakened wisdom mind. He was endowed with powerful psychic abilities which arose through his diligence of practice, and was revered by a massive congregation of devotees.
Luang Phu Jiam was born in Ban Don Rung, in Pratia Nia municipality of the County of Mangkalaburi in the Prpvince of Pra Dtabong, in Kampuchea. He was born on New Years Day the 1st january 2454 BE, which was a monday in the 13th phase of the lunar ascension of the second lunar month, in the year of the pig. He was the oldest child, and had two brothers and one sister.
Luang Phu Jiam’s primary education was at the state school in Mangkalaburi, where he was able to study Khmer and French language according to the traditional Kampuchean (Khmer) laws.When he finished his primary education and started secondary school, he had to stop after a period of only 3 months into his first year. This was due to the poverty his family were experiencing and also because of the effect the Civil War was having on his country. He then worked hard to help his family by doing farming jobs and selling wares on the markets, and raised his family’s standard of living to keep them sustained throughout the time of difficulty.
When he reached the age of 26, he was married to a young girl and had four children over the years that came. As he was a lover of his country and was very sad to see what was happening to it as it was currently suffering the French Invasion and Rule, he decided to help to do something about it, and bring his country back to a state of independence. And so he moved closer to the Khmer-Thai border with his family, and joined up with a group of rebels who were forming to go and fight against the French army.
But as they fought on, and time passed, they began to receive heavy damages from the French attacks, and were forced to flee over the border into Thailand, to avoid being defeated and killed. He planned to stay in Thailand for the group to reform and return to fight a renewed struggle against the French. He entered Thailand into the province of Surin in the year 2485 BE, traveling with a Khmer monk by the name of Pra Kroo Dee. The slept outside in the forest and by the waysides as they traveled, until they reached Sangka municipality. They remained around this area and sought work doing odd jobs,and eventually ended up coming to stay at the temple of Wat Taksin Waree Siri Sukh, in Ban Lam Duan.
He offered his services and requested to be a devotee of the abbot, Luang Por Wang Tammachodto. He devoted himself to serving the needs of Luang Por Wang, and eventually, in the year 2501 BE, became so beloved by the abbot and the monks of the temple, that the abbot offered to be his sponsor and ordain him as a Bhikkhu. At this time he was already 47 years old. He was given the ‘Chāyā’ monk name of ‘Adtisayō’.
Luang Por Wang was a famed Master of Wicha Akom (Buddha Magic), and bestowed his Wicha and their methods to Luang Phu Jiam, including the methods of empowering holy water, Takrut and other kinds of amulets. Once a year, Luang Phu Jiam would travel to learn and advance his magical Wicha with the great Luang Por Bprao Puttachodti of Wat Suwana Radtana Poti Wanaram. He learned how to bestow powerful blessings onto devotees with the spells he learned with this great Kroo Ba Ajarn of Surin.
He developed the ability to ease the sufferings of the folk with his blessings, healing illnesses, and raising the poverty stricken into prosperity with Maha Lap blessings. The faith of the people in Luang Phu Jioam himself began to rise, and his popularity spread around the province, as devotees told stories of how their lives had improved after receiving his blessings.

Luang Phu Jiam had now mastered his Wicha, and found his path, and so took off on Tudong forest wandering to gather his powers and fopcus them through the solitude of the forest and the detachment of constantly moving around, and not settling in one place. He traveled through the fegions of Northern Thailand, the North-East, the central and West-Central Regions, and around the forests of Laos, always avoidiing the settlements, and staying close to the mountains and caves in the forest.
During these years of Tudong, he met many great Tudong Forest Masters on his travels, who became his Kroo Ba Ajarn and bestowed him with the knowledge of their Wicha. He learned from many discussions and shared experiences, how to apply the proper methods of Samatha and Vipassana Kammathāna Meditation and Introspective Mindfulness practices.
These are the true practices taught by the Buddha Sakyamuni, which lead to Enlightenment, and Arahantship. He spent a full 13 years developing his practice in this way, until one rainy retreat, he came to the temple of Wat Taksin Waree in the ear 2512 BE
Building of Wat Intrasukaram (Wat Nong Yaw)
After his stay at Wat Taksin Waree, on the 27th April, he returned to is practice of Tudong wandering, and as he was in the vicinity of Nong Yant village, the faithful devotees of the area came to where Luang Phu was meditating in the forest, and begged him to build a temple at Nong Yaw in Udom district of Choke Chai township, Sangka County of Surin Province. At fist of course he stayed in a sparse hut and developed a small ‘Samnak Songk’ Sangha Office.
As the temple grew in size and its facilities, what was once a small Samnak Songk forest temple, had become a true temple with all the necessary installations to serve the community and the Monkdom. The temple was officially registered legally as a temple with the name of ‘Wat Intrasukaram’. Luang Phu Jiam devoted himself thereafter to teach the congregation to keep the 5 precepts of not killing, stealing, lying and slandering, adultery and intoxication, which are all unskilful acts and causes of future suffering, and to spread the Buddha-Dhamma to the folk.
Amulets (Notable Editions)
Luang Phu Jiam being a Khmer monk, who possessed the many Wicha of the Tudong Masters, was often beseeched to make amulets for the congregations. So he made his first edition of amulets, the ‘Takrut Tone’ with a Rian Roop Muean coin in his image, and a Pra Gaew Morakot emeral Buddha amulet attached together on a cord as a compendium of Magical Spells and Buddhist Blessings. He would give them the amulets he would make, to increase their peace of mind, and bring them protection and prosperity.
Within a short period of time, the Legend of his amulets began to take hold, as it became apparent that the people who possessed them, were experiencing Miraculous events. This caused people to abound at the temple queuing up in throngs to beg Luang Phu Jiam for one of his Takrut with amulets attached to wear as a necklace. Luang Phu would inscribe each yantra foil individually and empower it and bind it to his amulets and give them to the devotees, to wear around their necks. Then people began to ask him to perform the exorcism of black magic curses and evil spirits, forest phantoms and ghosts, by spraying his Holy Water, so highly reputed for its Abti-Black-Magick powers.
Apart from this, many soldiers would come to ask for his Takrut and monk Coin necklace to wear into battle for Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud protectio in their duty guarding the borders of the Nation. Luang Phu’s amulets became the talk of the nation, and entered the news for the many miraculous tales told by devotees who wore them. Luang Phu was then overwhelmed with the needs of the many devotees.
And so in the year 2515 BE, Luang Phu gave permission for the Kana Looksit comittee of devotees of the temple, to create an official edition of amulets for Metta Mahaniyom, Maha Lap, Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud Kaa Khaay Magic to help both those in need of protection, and those in need of prosperity, The Rian Roop Muean 1st edition Monk Coin was created iin numbers of 7000 amulets, with 7000 Takrut on cords for attachment to the coins.
In the year 2522 BE, the second edition Rian Sema was released, along with the Takrut Tone Koo Nuea Tong Daeng, so jealously guarded by the Devotees of this Inimitably pure and diligent monk, Luang Phu Jiam.
In the year 2537, Somdej pra Nang Jao Pra Boroma Rachininath Her Majesty the Queen of Thailand traveled to visit Luang Phu Jiam in a personal manner to discuss the Dhamma. On that occasion, Luang Phu Jiam gave a Pra Kring Roop Muean ‘Run Rap Sadej’ (Royal Visitation Edition) amulet to Her Majesty as a Memento, from the edition he had made for this occasion.
IN the year 2546, Luang Phu Jiam gave permission once more to create a new edition of amulets, called the ‘Run Munlaniti Adtisayō’ (Adtisayo Foundation Inauguration Edition).. This edition was marked especially of interest, as it which was made in the ancient ‘Lor Boran’ method of alchemical metallurgy.
Below; Her Majesty the Queen with Luang Phu Jiam, with his famous Takrut amulets in the foreground.
When counting the official editions made by Luang Phu Jiam himself, and those made by his Devotee Comittee, somewhere around 50 different editions of amulets can be confirmed to exist. His amulets are far and few to come across these days, and are highly treasured by those who have the good fortune and honour to possess one of the amazing amulets of Luang Phu Jiam Adtisayō.
On Friday 1st September 2549 BE, Luang Phu Jiam passed away, and the Monks of Wat Intrasukaram sounded the gong to let the devotees know that they had lost their beloved Kroo Ba Ajarn, who had passed on to the next Realm of existence.He was cremated after a 15 day period of mourning where he was placed on show in a glass coffin for his devotees to bid farewell and receive his blessings from beyond the grave.

A Most sacred and rare Old Guru Monk Amulet in fine Muan Sarn Powders, of the Luang Phu Moon Pantheon which no true devotee or collector should be without.
Presenting you with a very rare chance to see this powerful and popular animist charm from the year 2518 BE, released at Wat Khoeng Khaw in Chiang Mai, with blessings from a Host of Great Master Monks including the Great Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam, of Wat Ta Sung, in Utai Thani, and Luang Phu Kam Saen.
The legend of the sacred Wua Tanu of the temple of Wat Khoeng Khaw, Comes from the fact that Luang Phu Kam Saen of Wat Sri Don Moon, and Luang Phu Bun Rat of Wat Khoeng Khaw were very close friends, and in the year 2518 BE, at Wat Pha Don Moon, LP Kam Saen bestowed the Dtamra Grimoire Secret Methods of the Wicha Wua Tanu upon Luang Por Rat, as well as demonstrating the methods of making the sacred chanuan muan sarn materials and the magical methods of forging and casting the images with alchemical metallurgy.
Wua Tanu Wat Khoeng Khaw 2518 BE Blessed by LP Ruesi Ling Dam and KB Kam Saen
LP Kam Saen was very old already, and was afraid to die without passing on the secrets of the Wicha, which would be a loss to the world, and become one more lost Wicha that has not been preserved.
In this case of the first demonstration, he showed him the method used by those who did not have access to metallic forges, and so constructed and empowered a Wua Tanu effigy using Mai Hwaay Pha Seek, which is a magical form of Rattan wood, which are split into strips and used to weave the form of the effigy.
He carved it and shaped it into the form of the Wua Tanu and completed the invocations, inscriptions and incantations necessary, and handed it to Luang Phu Bun Rat. Luang Phu Kroo Ba Rat later also received the Wicha Wua Tanu of the Great Kroo Ba Chum of Wat Wang Mui, which Luang Phu Bun Rat said resembled the Wicha of Luang Phu Kroo Ba Kam Saen in every detail.
Luang Phu Bun Rat thus began to make Wua Tanu amulets using the Wicha given from the Dtamra of both these two Great Lanna Masters. Luang Phu Bun Rat took all of his Wua Tanu to give to Kroo Ba Kam Saen at Wat Pha Don Moon, for him to perform solo empowerment. After this empowerment session was performed, Kroo Ba Kam Saen told Luang Phu Bun Rat that he should not distribute the Wua Tanu yet, and should keep them first for a time, because in the future, a time will come when many people will come to seek the Wua Tanu. So for this reason, Luang Phu Bun Rat kept the Wua Tanu in his keeping, but took them to a number of other Kroo Ba Ajarn for solo empowerment from each Master, including Luang Phu Kroo Ba Chum of Wat Wang Mui, LP Kam Saen of Wat Suan Dork, Luang Phu Kroo Ba Dhamma Chai of Wat Tung Luang, Kroo Ba Chaya Wongsa of Wat Pra Puttabat Huay Dtom.
He even took them down to Bangkok to ask Luang Phu Seng of Wat Kanlayanamit (The Master of the Dtamnan Bam Montr Bua Ban Flowering Lotus Holy Water Wicha), for him to perform empowerment over the Wua Tanu.
Above and beyond these events, the Great Luang Por Ruesi Ling Dam took these amulets and blessed them in a large number of Buddha Abhiseka blessing ceremonies around Thailand, because he would travel to Wat Khoeng Khaw every year for the Kathina robe giving ceremonies, and so would take them back and forth each time he visited.
The amulet is most often presented in Thai amulet circles as being the Wua Tanu of LP Ruesi Ling Dam, but is in fact the Wua Tanu of Wat Khoeng Khaw, which has the blessings and empowerment of so many great Masters of the time, that the amulet has become a popular member of the pantheon of all of the monks and temple involved with its empowerment.
Devotees of any or all of these Masters can safely regard the amulet as being in direct spiritual connection with their chosen Master, as well as being sure that this Wua Tanu must have immense magical power to protect your household and wealth, and fend off black magic, demons and ghosts, and bring prosperity and good fortune, and happiness to your family household and prosperity to your business.
Kata Wua Tanu
How to use Wua Tanu
You can use Wua Tanu to watch over your house,or mark a safe area around the house, or any place where there is strong Magic. To do this, you need four Wua Tanu, and a bowl of pure water in a Khan Nam Montr vessel.
Then take the Wua Tanu and place them in the Khan Nam Montr (prayer water bowl). Then focus your mind into meditation, and think of the Buddha Dhamma and Sangha, the Deities and Kroo Ba Ajarn, and Ajarn Somrach, and empower the prayer water by chanting the Kata into it and projecting your thoughts into the water as you blow three times into the bowl.
Take the four Wua Tanu, and bury them in the Earth in the four Cardinal directions. If it is a house, that has no earth to be able to dig, then the Wua Tanu should be placed in the four outer corners of the house,and the prayer water should be sprinkled around the area to be protected. If you have a Kuman Tong or other forms of Phuudt or Prai which you make Bucha offerings to in the house, then you must tell the Wua Tanu by stating who is allowed to enter and leave the protected area and who not.
It is a good idea to also state that any ghosts or beings that are benevolent and will bring help or auspicious blessings should be allowed to enter. In truth the Wua Tanu is a kind of ‘Hun Payont’ Golem, but in animal form, instead of Human. Instilled with powerful Anti Black Magic and Protective spells to prevent thieves, demons, sorcery and curses from entering the household or vicinity around them. The Wua Tanu also Possesses the Magical power to help attract Business, Gambling and Lottery success. They possess multiple powers, ranging from protection against black magick and deadly dangers, ward off enemies, and Seduce Others. Animist spirit assistants of this type work as a kind of invisible guardian and valet, who cares for your safety and well being, protecting and nourishing.

If you want to make Nam Montr to remove the power of magic from a person place or object, or to banish demons and spirits, or exorcise a person who is possessed, then you must make the Nam Montr in the same way as previously explained. But this time you need to use only one Wua Tanu. Then hold the Wua Tanu in your hands and enter Samadhi meditation, focusing as strongly as possible on the Merits of the Buddha.
Chant Na Mo Dtassa Pakawadto Arahadto Sammaa Samputtassa 3 times, and ask for the Power and grace of the Triple Gem the Angels and Deities and Brahmas, Kroo Ba Ajarn (your teachers), and the power of the Mythic Wua Tanu to make the prayer water powerful and endowed with the ability to remove all forms of black magic and evil influence (you can specify particular purposes if you wish to be more detailed in the function of the Nam Montr).
Once you have chanted the Kata of empowerment, you should breathe deeply inwards and blow three times on the Wua Tanu, and lower it into the Khan Nam Montr until it is submerged under the surface of the prayer water.
Then you can use the water for drinking, cleaning yourself and the like to remove any magic spells or unlucky influences. You can wear or carry the Wua Tanu with you, or put it in your vehicle as a protection from accidents of all kinds. If there are ever any visitations or experiences with contacting dark entities, all you need to do is dedicate some of the fruits of your merits to them, and think of Wua Tanu, and they will disappear.
Kata Wua Tanu
(always chant ‘Namo Dtassa pakawadto Arahadto Samputtassa 3 times before any other Kata)
Then Chant the Hnun Taat See (Invocation of the four elements)
Na Ma Na A – Nor Gor Na Ga – Gor Or Nor A – Na A Ga Ang (3 times)

Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm Amulet Hoo Mee Jud Thaan Koo Niyom with Authenticity Certificate of Authenticity
The Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm 2509 BE Edition amulets were blessed by the following Masters; 1. Tan Prakun Pra Taep Sittinayok (Luang Phu Nak) of Wat Rakang Kositaram, in Bangkok 2. Luang Por Te Kong Tong, the master of Wicha Kumarn Tong and abbot of Wat Sam Ngam temple, in Nakorn Pathom 3. Tan Jao Prakun Pra Rachatammaporn (Luang Por Ngern) of Wat Don Yai Horm, in Nakorn Pathom 4. Tan Pra Kroo Prasat Wityakom (Luang Por Nor) of Wat Klang Ta Ruea 5. Tan Jao Kun Wimon Gijjaraks (abbot of Wat Chana Songkram) 6. Tan Pra Kroo Wisai Sope (Ajarn Tim), of Wat Chang Hai in Pattani 7. Tan Ajarn Ampon abbot of Wat Prasat Bunyawas, in Bangkok 8. Tan Ajarn Satid of Wat Vachira Tamma Sathit in Bangkok 9. Tan Ajarn Dtaem , of Wat Pra Loi, in Supanburi 10 a large group of monks from Wat Sutat to assist in the chanting of the Buddha Abhiseka, with Pra Kroo palad Wisuttiwat presiding over the chanting.
Each Pim of the 12 Major models had various block press molds with each mold possessing slightly different designs. This means that despite only nine Major Pim being made, each Pim has multiple block press molds, and hence the pantheon extends down to the various sub-designs of each of the many block presses. Some block presses are much more highly preferred by collectors to others.
Four different artisans were commissioned for the design and creation of the various block press molds;
1. Lung Chaem Bua Plien Si – the block press mold designs made by this artisan replicated the classic design opf Wat Bang Khun Prohm amulets, with the slight difference that the images were slimmer than previous designs, and a few Special Pim block press molds were made by this artisan.
2. Kun Manit Bpathapi – this artisan made block press molds according to classic models which were removed from the Kru Chamber in the Chedi Stupa, from original Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri (Wat Rakang Kositaram), and also made some special design block press molds
3. Chang Kasem Mongkol Jaroen – this artisan stepped in during the latter part of the creation, to help finish the remaining block press molds on time for the ceremony. This artisan was a highly skilled artisan, and the amulets made from the block press molds of his making are considered exquisite, and highly sought after
4. The Block Gammagarn mold makers; This means the people who possessed original Wat Bang Khun Prohm Pra Somdej amulets of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) in their possession, and used them to create new block presses. The amulets of these block presses resemble the ancient Pra Somdej Kru Wat Bang Khun Prohm originals most of all, with the only real visible difference being that they are slightly smaller in size.
Police Commisioner Prapas Jarusathiarn, the vice minister of the Thai Parliament, in collaboration with Lady Sawai Jarusathiarn sponsored the building of all the installations built between 2501 and 2509 BE, and commissioned the amulets to be made for release in celebration of the success of these projects.
On the 4th of January 2509 BE Comissioner Prapas Jarusathiarn lit Incense and Candles in the Shrined to Bucha the Triple Gem, and Police Captain Krit Siwara read out the list of sponsors of the edition comittee. He then addressed the Sangha (Monks), to begin chanting the Buddha Abhiseka. The Victory candle to inaugurate the Buddha Abhiseka Ceremony was lit, and the ceremony began.
Four of the Monks took their positions for ‘Nang Prok’ meditative empowerment on their respective daises, and held the Sinjana cords which led to the amulets, coming down from the ceiling of the Uposatha Shrineroom, and began to empower the amulets.
On Wednesday 4th January 2509 BE at 15:55 pm, Police Commisioner Prapas Jarusathiarn began to hand out the amulets to devotees who came to make merits and pay reverence at the temple, and also stored a large number of amulets in a batch within the Kru hiding place of the Chedi Stupa for posterity.
On Thursday the 6th, Friday the 7th, and Saturday the 8th of January 2509 BE, theLook Nimit Arahant Balls were retrieved from beneath the Uposatha, and a gold pasting ceremony was performed as is Traditional in Thai Buddhism, and the amulets were distributed once more during this ceremony, to devotees who came to make merits.
On Sunday the 9th January 2509 BE, the Sila Reuks main cornerstone of the Uposatha Shrineroom was laid by His Majesty the King Bhumipol Adulyadej, and initiated the Pitī Te Tong Gold Pouring Ceremony to add Gold to the Casting Mold of the Buddha-Rupa statue for the Uposatha, which was cast in Sukhothai Era in the Mara Wichai conquering Mara posture, with a 16 Inch wide base.
In addition a statue of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri of Wat Rakang Kositaram was also cast with a 29 Inch wide base for installation in the shrine at Wat Bang Khun Prohm, with a further 109 smaller 5 inch wide base statues made for distribution to the public.
On Monday the 10th of January 2509 BE at 19:30 pm, 84 Ordained Members of the Sangha performed the chanting of Jaroen Pra Putta Mont within the Uposatha. At 21:01 Somdej Pra Wanarat of Wat Chetupon performed the Pitī Phuug Putta Sima Ceremony to officially inaugurate the Panta Sima Dais for the placement of the 29 inch wide statue of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri.
The statue was placed on the Putta Sima under and arched edifice next to the large Chedi Stupa of Wat Bang Khun Prohm (the one where the famous Kru Bang Khun Prohm hiding place amulets of Soomdej Dto were found). A carved stone table with the insignia of His Majesty the King was placed into the shrine to mark the occasion of His Majesty’s presence.
The Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm 2509 BE series amulets hence were made over a period of many years before they were all completed, beginning in 2501 BE and completing the series in 2508 BE, when the final batches of the total 84,000 amulets of the edition were mixed into clay and pressed with the block presses.
The amulets were pressed inside the Uposatha Shrineroom which had been built and completed, with Luang Por Chom being the monk who pressed the first amulets in the Pathoma Reuks initiation ritual. Then the Gammagarn Sponsor Committee members, and many devotees who came to assist in the pressing, all took turns in helping to press the amulets, until they were all done.
There were two kinds of amulet presses made during this ceremony
1. Pra Banju Kru – these amulets were rented to devotees at 1 Baht each, for the devotee to make merits by placing the amulet inside the Kru Chamber of the Chedi Stupa for posterity. These amulets had the word ‘Banju’ (meaning to put inside the Chedi), embossed on the rear face. 84,000 Pra Somdej amulets were made for this purpose with the word ‘Banju’ on rear face
2. Bucha – these amulets were made for Bucha reverence and for Devotees to wear and take home with them.
These amulets were distributed to the Public for Bucha at 10 Baht each, except for the Sayasana reclining Buddha model, which was ‘rented’ for Bucha at 25 Baht each. Some sets of 11 Pim Song Models were also distributed to devotees who wished to donate more funds (all models except the Sayasana), at 100 Baht a set. These amulets had the rubber ink stamp with the Chedi of Wat Bang Khun Prohm stamped on the rear face, with 84,000 amulets pressed in this type. However, after removing any broken or defective amulets from the batch, only 72,518 amulets were actually intact and distributed.
The Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm were made using the broken Pra Somdej taken from the 2500 BE Chedi Stupa Hiding Place opening, mixed with Puttakun Yantra Powders from great Master Monks around the country, from the past and present, with Poon Khaw, Poon Plueak Hoi (powdered sea shell), Pollens from Bua Luang Lotus and Dork Pikul Flowers, and Nam Man Tan Iw (Tang Oil).
There were numerous Block Mae Pim block presses for the amulets, with some block presses to spare in case any of them broke during the pressing. Some were made from plaster of paris, others made from cement, and others from dential cement. As the amulets were being pressed over a period of time, the block presses would break, and a new one would be taken and used in its stead, one after the other.
This process continued until all the amulets were finished,. because eaxch block press had slight differences in the way they were carved by each artisan, there are a large number of differences to be found in various examples of the same Pim Song model, with each block press defining slight differences in details of design.
This is why one cannot look at an example of a Pim in a magazine, and compare it with another of the same Edition and Model, because even if the amulets are both the same Pim (e.g. a Pim Sen Daay), they will still have differences in features if they were pressed by two different block presses.
To compare, one has to find an amulet for comparison which came from exactly the same block press, of which there were many. this is where one’s studies of the historic facts, and ability to recognise which Block press Mold an amulet comes from, is essential study for students and aficionados of the Wat Bang Khun Prohm 09 series (and any series for that matter).
To give an idea as to how many different block presses there were, we can take a look at the fact that merely the Pim Yai (Pim Pra Pratan) model, had a total of 27 Block Presses made and used to finish pressing the whole series. The Pim Gaes Talu Sum model, was orginally pressed as a Pim Yai Block Press, but the Block Press broke where the tip of the Buddha’s topknot touched the arch.
The artisans reworked the block press and it became a design with the tip of the topknot piercing the arch, to cover up the broken part of the Block Press. And this brought the Pim Gaes Talu Sum model to be added into the series.
The 12 Pim Song Models of the Wat Bang Khun Prohm 2509 BE Series edition are as follows;
1. Pim Yai (Pim Pra Pratan)
2. Pim Sen Daay
3. Pim Song Chedi
4. Pim Gaes Bua Dtum
5. Pim Sangkati
6. Pim Prok Po
7. Pim Thaan Koo
8. Pim Thaan Saem
9. Pim Ok Krut
10. Pim Sayasana
11. Pim Kanaen
12. Pim Jantr Loi
In addition to the Pra Somdej models, there were the Pra Pong Pim Pra Sivali and Pim Roop Muean Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri also released in this edition.
All the amulets which were not distributed to the public at the time were placed in the large Chedi Stupa Kru Chamber at Wat Mai Amataros (Wat Bang Khun Prohm). For the series, a water tank sized chamber was constructed within the Chedi for the storage of the amulets, with ten ventilation holes in it, with sand in the base to absorb any water which may enter from flooding.
The amulets were then filled into the chamber, with six silver foils in layers between each pile of amulets, with the words ‘Banju Pi 09’ on them, so people who may discover them in the far future will know which year they were buried in, and from which edition they came from. It is because of how the amulets were well stored and protected against the weather and elements, that the Pra Somdej Kru Wat Bang Khun Prohm 09 edition is more attractive that the 2500 BE Kru Chamber opening edition.
The earlier editions removed from the Chedi always suffered floods and climatic changes, and all have much more Kraap Kru growth on the surface of the amulets. Whereas the 2509 BE Pra Somdej Wat Bang Khun Prohm series amulets are pristinely preserved and kept, without any damage from floods or other weather related disasters or climate influenced events.
For this reasons, the Wat Bang Khun Prohm 2509 BE series is one of the most preferred editions of Pra Somdej, and perhaps the most highly p[referred edition from Wat Bang Khun Prohm after the original amulets from Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri found in the Chedi years before.
Rian Run Sam Hlang Yant Trai Saranakom Nuea Tong Daeng third edition Guru Monk Coin amulet, with the Triple gem Yantra on rear face. A most highly sought after Pra Niyom Preferred category Master Class Amulet of the Pantheon of Luang Por Guay of Wat Kositaram. This edition featured two different versions, of the same shape, but differing designs on the rear face; 1. Rian Hlang Yant Trai Saranakom with the Triple Gem Yantra on rear face, and 2. the Rian Hlang Yant Hanuman Chern Tong Vanora God with Victory Flag Yantra on rear face.

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.
