The Luang Por Sotorn Buddha of Wat Sotorn in Bang Pakong, Thailand, was one of the Famous 5 Sacred Thai Buddhas found Miraculously floating down the river.
The Buddha was invited to reside in the Temple in an Official Ceremony according to Ancient Traditions. A Monk was found who knew the method of Inviting, and the Buddha was raised up to be installed within the Temple.
Once the Buddha was installed, it was seen to be a Buddha made in the Lan Chang Era. Because it was not overly large to steal, the Monks were worried about its safety and so made a thick outer casing of cement and covered it in gold, to make the Image larger and heavier, rendering impossible to steal.
The Image of the Luang Por Sotorn Buddha is one of the five most Sacred Buddha Images of Thailand and seen as one of the ‘Pra Koo Baan Koo Mueang’ (Nationally Favored and Connected to Culture) Buddha Images, and one of the most Highly Collected and Officially recognized amulets in Thai History.
The light-ray-like effect, and stiffness of the metallic surface of the amulet around the Buddha, forms an aura that is both beautiful to behold, as well as making the amulet impossible to forge or commit an act of fakery, for only the top quality sacred metals, and the best and most expensive form of block press mold casting, can reproduce this quality and effect on the surface sheen of an amulet.
All Amulets of this Genre become Rare Collectors Items as Time Passes and are seen as a Family Blessing to have in the House, as well as a very secure Investment for ones Children to Inherit.
Luang Por Sotorn Amulets have their own Niche Genre and Collector Circles, which has now become an International Scene. The casting and empowerment of the Luang Por Sotorn Amulets, was made according to the Traditional Method that has been practiced throughout all Generations of Pra Luang Por Sothorn Amulets and Buddha Images. The Chanuan Muan Sarn used for the Casting of the amulets was made from a grand selection of Sacred Alchemical metals, blessed by a Host of Guru Masters.

The Pra Luang Por Sotorn Buddha, is, much like the Buddha Chinarat, attributed to many lifesaving miracles which have happened over the years in the past and present, and considered to be a very powerful amulet for protection of oneself and one’s household, and especially good for protection when traveling (Klaew Klaad), to evade all deadly dangers. LP Sotorn is of course, also a Buddhanussati amulet, for practitioners of meditation and the followers of the teachings of the Buddha (Buddha-Dhamma) to remember their precepts through the act of wearing the amulet, as a reminder to remain mindful of one’s precepts.
The Buddhanussati (remembrance of Buddha’s Enlightenment), serves to inspire the practitioner in meditation and practice of the Buddhist Sammappadhāna (four right exertions), such as Dhāna (generosity practice) Marananussati (Mindfulness of the Uncertainty of Life, and when the moment of Death will come, as a reminder to remain skilful in one’s own deeds, for a karma-Free Conscience). It is a clear conscience that allows the mind to still itself through mindfulness of breath, and this is why Sila (Precepts, are one of the three important factors to develop and accumulate according to Lord Buddha’s teaching.
The Four Right Exertions (Sammappadhāna), are associated with the Noble Eightfold Path’s factor of “right effort” (sammā-vāyāma) and the Five Spiritual Faculties’ faculty of “energy” (virya – an attitude of gladly engaging in wholesome activities, to cause one to accomplish wholesome or virtuous actions.),and, are one of the seven sets of Qualities Conducive to Enlightenment.
