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’
Pra Somdej Thaan Singh Luang Phu Nak Wat Rakang Kositaram
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

The Ceremony of the 118th Anniversary Edition was initiated by Somdej Prayan Sangworn Pra Sangarach Head Monk of Wat Bovorn and the Thai Sangha, with his Holiness performing the Lighting of the Victory Candle of the Buddha Abhiseka Chanting Ceremony (Dhamma Chakra), which is the Ritual of the Opening of the Eyes of the Buddha Image.
The Ceremony was performed on the 22nd of May, with his Holiness Prayan Sangworn Sangarach sitting in ‘Nang Prok’ Meditation to Emanate Metta within the Uposatha Shrine Room of Wat Rakang Kositaram .
The Purpose of this edition was to assist the Somdej Pra Puttajarn Toh Prohmrangsri Foundation to restore the Sala Bprian edifice which was built in the Ayuttaya Kingdom Era, bringing it back to its original condition, and to improve the Public Facilities within the enclave of the temple.
This edition also served to raise the funds available within the Somdej Pra Puttajarn Toh Prohmrangsri Foundation to enable it to keep up with its projects as was originally planned when the Foundation was formed. In addition, funds were needed to build a public utilities hall (Sala Anek Prasongk – Multi-Purpose Building), to use for the various needs of Buddhism, be it for visitors to rest in, hold Dhamma Sermons, or other purposes.
For these purposes, the permission to create this 118th Anniversary Edition was given by the Gammagarn Comittee of Wat Rakang Kositaram and 89 great Kanajarn Guru Master Monks were invited to perform Nang Prok Empowerment over the amulets, with some very great Monks present for this now Historic and Classic Edition;
