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.


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

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.

Amulet Encyclopaedia of Luang Phu Tim Issarigo

Amulet Encyclopaedia of Luang Phu Tim Issarigo

This legend has come from the vast number of devotees who almost all say that since they owned an amulet of Luang Phu Tim, their lives changed for the better in rapid fashion, and then continued to improve on a constant basis.

Takrut Sariga Koo Nuea Tong Daeng Luang Phu Tim

The historical documentation of the Takrut Sariga of Luang Phu Tim records that the archbishop of Rayong invited four of the Greatest Monks of the Province, to make Takrut Sariga, each according to their own personal methods, which were all then placed together into a monks alms-bowl filled with prayer water, and each of the four monks then sat in meditation one by one, and empowered them with their psychic powers, and bestow their blessings continuously until the Takrut floated up from the bottom, to the surface of the holy water within the almsbowl of their own miraculous accord.

The first two Masters who sat to perform empowerment, were not able to make the Takrut rise up and float miraculously. The third Master who sat to empower was Luang Por Horm, of Wat Sak Hmak, who sat for an incredibly long time trying to make the Takrut float in the air, but was also unable to make the Takrut float.

The archbishop saw that there was still no success with his mission to empower with miraculous events, and called the fourth and final Master to come and attempt the feat. This fourth Master was of course, Luang Phu Tim Issarigo, of Wat Laharn Rai. Luang Phu came and sat before the almsbowl and entered into meditation….

Within only a few minutes of Luang Phu Tim sitting in meditation, the holy prayer water in the almsbowl began to form into a whirlpool, and the one of the Takrut began to float up towards the surface of the holy water within the almsbowl. Luang Por Horm was watching, but was not yet convinced that Luang Phu Tim had succeeded, and so asked Luang Phu Tim to continue and see if he could make the Takrut race around the circular edge of the almsbowl on the surface of the water, and said that if he managed it, he would offer his reverence to Luang Phu Tim.

Luang Phu Tim then stared at the Takrut which floated on the surface, and immediately, the Takrut began to revolve rapidly around the circular edge of the alms-bowl. All of those present including the other three Masters were astonished to witness this miraculous event, and the rumours of the event spread rapidly throughout the land.

It was from this point onwards the the name of Luang Phu Tim began to gain National Fame, and overtake the popularity of the other Masters of Chonburi and Rayong who were previously much more famous and preferred, such as Luang Por Horm of Wat Sak Hmak, or Luang Por Chern. This was the first event which brought Luang Phu Tim’s inimitable powers to public knowledge and paved the way for his great trajectory to become one of the greatest Masters in all recorded history of Thai Amulets.

When Luang Phu Tim would make Takrut Sariga, he would always seek out and choose the most appropriate astrological alignments for the day of empowerment, which always had to be on a Monday. He would prepare mostly copper Yantra Foils and sometimes Brass, Silver, Aluminium, Lead or even Gold foils, and cut them into tiny pieces, and then inscribe them and empower them only on Mondays. He would enter Meditation and begin to chant the Ongarn Kroo Master Spell in its full compendium of Incantations, until he could hear the sound of Sariga Birds on the Astral Plane, where the dimension of the Himapant Forest lies, which is the land of the Sariga Bird and other denizens, such as the Rachasri, Hongsa and other animal Deities.

When he would become able to hear the sound of the Sariga Birds he would begin the inscription of the Yant Sariga. He would only be able to make a limited number of Takrut in the space of one day, not more than 100 per session, because the Wicha demands that the Takrut must be completed before mid-day, otherwise the power will not remain within them. So he would always stop to make them when mid-day approached.

The Takrut Sariga of Luang Phu Tim is famed for its powerful Metta Maha Niyom Maha Sanaeh Maha Hlong magic to seduce, enchant, and induce helpfulness in the hearts of others.

Wicha Sariga

The Nok Sariga (or, ‘Salika’) is a Golden Tongued Heavenly Bird which is attributed with immense Metta Mahaniyom and Maha Sanaeh qualities, and is along with the Hongsa, one of the Best Devas to seek assistance in ‘Jerajaa’ Magic (convincing speech).

Jerajaa means ‘Discussion’. The Golden Tongued Sariga bird enchants and charms the listeners of he who possesses the Wicha, bringing a hypnotic and charming effect, to influence and convince, making people see things your way. Good Business is to be expected with the Sariga.

Magpies are known for their tendency to pick up shiny glittering objects, such as jewelry, and whisk them away to their nests, ad hoard them. This is no different when it comes to the tendencies of the Celestial Magpie, who is indeed just as attracted to treasures as any Magpie. The Wicha Sariga is a very popular type of magic with shopkeepers, and traveling salespersons.

So Luang Phu Rian cast some spells to make his gang invincible, and they set out to find the strangers. It turned out that, despite being only seven of them, they managed to chase off the twenty strangers even though they were attacked with large knives and were outnumbered, and that nobody had a scratch on them, even though their shirts were full of rips and holes from the knives of their enemies. He then realised that he possessed powerful magic when he cast spells, and decided to use his powers to develop Wicha.

Luang Phu Rian was Ordained into the Sangha on 1st July in the year 2470 BE, at Wat Khwan Mueang in Bang Grang, Nontaburi, with Pra Kroo Chum of Wat Pracha Rangsan as his Upachaya Ordaining Officer.

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.

Pra Somdej Thaan Koo Bang Khun Prohm 2509 BE

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.
