This video presents a few different editions from both the temple of Wat Bang Khun Prohm, and the temple of Wat rakang Kositaram, for your study and enjoyment.

Amulet Talk with Ajarn Spencer Littlewood

The video has a very entertaining and informative, narrative from Ajarn Spencer Littlewood, which accompanies this video slideshow of a number of classic Pra Somdej amulets from famous editions, of both the temple of Wat Bang Khun Prohm, and the temple of Wat Rakang Kositaram.

The practice of praying to Nang Kwak was adopted by the Thais as Buddhism and the Brahmin faith came to Thailand, and is as proliferant today as it ever was in ancient times! The Brahmins, who are practitioners of Kata in a very big way, brought the statues of Nang Kwak here with them, changing the posture of the statue from that of a lady sitting on a cart, to that of a lady sitting in a shop waving to beckon customers.

First of all before anybody, the Brahmins used it for their own business, but when they saw that people in Thailand believed in the powers of Nang Kwak, they began to make the statues here too, chanting and invoking the kata and blessing the statues to sell to other Thai Merchants for making Bucha. 

Nang Supawadee then received her new and more commonly know name, due to her sitting and waving position in the new statue form “Nang Kwak” (waving lady – Kwak means to wave and beckon with the hand).

How to Revere Nang Gwak

To Bucha Nang Gwak, One should use 5 incense sticks and offer flowers (preferably jasmine), red syrup drink (‘Nam Daeng’). Some water, and also some sweets and rice as offerings.

Light the incense, candles, and offer the flowers and drinks. Then Say “Namo Dtassa Pakawadto Arahadto Sammaa Samputtassa” 3 times, and bow three times to Buddha before you begin chanting Kata Nang Gwak.

Welcome back to Thailand Amulets blog – After a week or two of silence on the Thailand-Amulets.Net Blog Section we are happy to announce our return, after moving the store to a more efficient Hosting Company and faster server. It has taken us two weeks to finalize the transfer and we are now safely in the hands of our new hosting company, which offers a much more efficient server. A revamp of the navigation design and the site banner has also been made.

So now we can safely begin to post new articles and info pages again, and will soon be adding the latest additions upcoming to the store. As a small taster, here are some previews of the latest editions of amulets which are about to be added to the store in the coming 2 weeks.
Amongst the Most Attractive and Interesting of the Upcoming Releases of Thai Buddhist Amulets about to arrive in the store, are the Benja Baramee Edition of amulets from Wat Rakang/Wat Gaes Chaiyo – ‘Rian See Liam Grorp Roop Chalu Lay Yok Ongk’ Sacred Metal amulets from Wat Rakang, and Wat Gaes Chaiyo Temple. The series is a large range of Pra Somdej Dto Prohmrangsri Images, in rectangular or bell shaped frames, Pra Somdej Wat Rakang and Pra Somdej Wat Gaes Chaiyo amulets. All the coins were made in a vast number of different combinations of sacred and/or precious metals, with most elegant and finely honed decorative frames. In addition, some large 9 inch base Statues of Somdej Pra Puttajarn (Dto) Prohmrangsri were released and some Pha Yant (Yantra Cloths), with a special Benjapakee set of amulets in box set being an eye-catching addition to the series.

Blessed in Two Major Puttapisek Ceremonies of National and Historic Importance, the first Blessing being performed at Wat Rakang Kositaram in Bangkok, and the second Empowerment being performed at Wat Gaes Chaiyo temple in Ang Tong.

Above Pic; Second Blessing Ceremony of the Run Benja Baramee 2555 BE Edition Amulets at  at Wat Gaes Chaiyo

Most interesting for me of this series, are the nine inch gold leaf covered bronze statues of Somdej Dto Prohmrangsri, of which only 50 or more were made and are certain to become classic rarities, whose value will quintuple in a very short time indeed in my opinion, but whatever the value will always be a difficult thing to let go of, because it is a most excellent Bucha statue for the altar for personal practice. Money can be found anywhere, but an item like this can not.

The next interesting series of Sacred Buddhist Amulets and Bucha Statues is the Exquisitely Beautiful edition of  Thai-Chinese Taw Waes Suwan Statues, Coins and Amulets from Wat Plab Pela, which has been awaited with great Anticipation. Considered to be the most important release of Taw Waes Suwan amulets in Decades, and destined to become a classic Thai Buddhist Amulet of Connoisseur Status. a total of 96 Guru Masters attended the massive Putta Pisek and Tewa Pisek Empowerment Ceremony in a Large ceremony of National  and Historic Importance.

Taw Waes Suwan Wat Plab Pela 2555 BE

The edition includes 19 Inch and 4.5 Inch high Bucha statues in various luxurious finishes and sacred metals. Special Taw Waes Suwan Coils with Dragons were also included in the series.

Taw Waes Suwan statues are fashioned into a special 3 legged posture holding a dragon. The third leg is standing on a treasure chest holding it safe from thievery, and the dragon prevents floods and Tsunamis and natural disasters from occurring and causing havoc to the economy of the household, and indeed, your Nation.

Taw Waes Suwan

Specially designed and empowered using a complex set of Wicha which have been gathered and applied in order to protect Human Beings and the Nation, from Natural and Economic Disaster, to acquire more Wealth and to Keep what Wealth that has been Gathered already from slipping away and disappearing. This editions is chosen specially by Me (Thailand-Amulets.Net’s owner Ajarn Spencer), for i have studied and selected this edition as a very recommendable choice for the customers of the store.

Two versions of coin amulets were made, with a special two sided two posture version being the collectors Gammagarn model.

Some miniature Loi Ongk Statuettes ware also released in various sacred metals. A very Important and sacred Ceremony was performed with accurate Astrological Alignments and a host of Thailand’s great Master Monks to Empower and give Blessings.

The Style of Future Additions

As a result of having read various feedback mails and consulted some of you about what you feel as the store has grown, the main message i have got from all of you , is that, because you all love amulets and seek the best most powerful and sacred ones from the best masters, but not always do you yourselves know which those are. I have noticed that you expect me to not stock amulets or masters that i myself do not find to be powerful, and that i present only the best or the worthy ones to you based on what i feel are truly powerful amulets from capable masters

I have thus decided to do this, but that because some masters work well for people that i myself may not find so attractive, i think i shall still continue to offer and increase the widest choice of amulets possible, but that i shall have a special section of the store with my personal recommendations for the best amulets, and that i shall post honest blog articles about any particular editions or particular amulets i feel should be appreciated but which may not catch the eye unless you know

For example, one amulet whose title does not reveal the true power and greatness of the amulet, is the Takrut Maha Jakkapat from Wat Tham Wua Daeng, because it is in fact a product from the hand of the Great Living Master ‘Luang Por Simplii’ who performed a constant nine day vigil of empowerment on the Takrut. They are heavy old school leaden Takrut Tone, wrapped in strong cord with gold leaf and lacquer and are empowered by a Monk who has eluded International and National fame but who is for a small circle of people in the know an ‘Undeclared Arya Sangha’

For those of you who don’t know, an Arya Sangha is one who has entered and past stream entry and bvecome one of the eight types of Enlightened Beings. It is this kind of Practitioner who Masters the Abhinya Powers, and it is the amulets of such masters which have the true Miracle Power as read about in Legends of Old.

Takrut Maha Jakkapat Luang Por Simplii

This is therefore the amulet which i would recommend in this post as the ‘so good you’d never know it if i didn’t tell you’ amulet of choice. It is probably sold out soon but i hope to restock if i can find a number of them because i seriously believe in this Takrut and wish to provide it for customers.

Luang Por Juea 108 Takrut Sivali Lockets

Coming up in the next Month, is the most amazing selection of Lockets, Pra Pid Ta Amulets, and Wua Tanu Bucha statues (and loi ongk amulets) coming from Luang Por Juea of Wat Klang Bang Kaew of Nakorn Patom. This edition is released for the Suan Badibat Tam Po Sethee with the funds going to the construction of a large Pra Pikanesworn (Ganesha) statue sitting on a gold and silver Bee at the temple. The statue will bring wealthy blessings to devotees who pray to it at the temple, and will help to reduce poverty. The wealthy blessings of those who support the building of the Deity with these amulets are also to be expected.

All of the above editions are of the best sacred ingredients and blessed by powerful Masters, according to our close study and pre-investigation of  each edition before making the decision to choose and select them for our customers. The Lockets by luang Por Juea are made using the finest magical sacred muan sarn and are exceptional in their outstanding originality, and immensely concentrated power. The Lockets have either 108 Takrut with a Pra Sivali Loi Ongk statuette or 56 Takrut with Pra Sivali. The Pra Pid Ta Amulets have 28 or 16 Takrut. The Takrut themselves contain various Wicha which i shall document in the descriptions of each amulet when i add them to the store.

Wes shall also be stocking the ‘Rian Jao Sua’ amulets from this edition, which are Classic amulets of Maha Lap and Kong Grapan variety, and this edition looks set to become a classic from an Aged Master of the Generation of the Greats, with an immensely long and respectable trajectory of Practice and Merit accumulation behind him. An extremely collectible edition in my opinion, of the finest Artisanry.

A lot more  amazing amulets are of course on their way, including a host of occult Charms and Super Powerful ‘Chin Aathan’ carvings from Pra Ajarn Dtecharangsri.

Pra Somdej Pim Kanaen – Nuea Pong Puttakun – Luang Por Pae – Wat Pikul Tong – Stainless Steel Casing Included

Pra Somdej Pim Kanaen

Pra Somdej Luang Por Pae Wat Pikul Tong amulets are of the Niyom Classification (preferred by the reference class collector circles), Making this amulet Reference Class amulet.

This particular example is a small size ‘Pim Kanaen’ Niyom amulet, and is recommendable and apt for Ladies or Children to wear, due to its petite size, and delicate design features.

Pra Somdej Pim Kanaen

The soft white velvety surface texture of the Pong Puttakun sacred powder mixture gives the amulet a wonderful sheen which would look best perhaps encased in gold casing.

This is a Historical Classic amulet which can easily if perhaps arguably be included in the Benjapakee class of amulets under the Pra Somdej Category. This is because the Pra Somdej Category of Benjapakee Classics normally includes any top Classic which is widely accepted and has the correct Pedigree.

Pra Somdej Pim Kanaen

Pra Somdej Luang Por Pae are definitely amulets of High Pedigree. The stories of miracles and fortunate lifechanging experiences which have happened to Devotees of his amulets, that news of their magic power has travelled to many other countries where his amulets are revered highly, including Taiwan, Singapore, China and Malaysia. One more thing which makes Luang Por Pae amulets not only popular and rare, is the fact that Luang Por never made large numbers of amulets. He would not issue amulets very often, and would only ever make them in small numbers. The Muan Sarn ingredients used were always of the finest and most sacred ingredients possible to acquire, and the Puttapisek empowerment ceremonies were always attended by Great Master Guru Monks of high repute.

In a phrase; An all time classic, from a Great Guru Master whose attainments are undoubted, and whose amulets have seen many a story of life saving miracles or lucky windfalls circulating.

Recommended Ladies amulet! Price includes stainless steel casing with engraved pattern casing.

Pra Somdej Pim Kanaen – Nuea Pong Puttakun – Luang Por Pae – Wat Pikul Tong – Stainless Steel Casing Included

Pra Somdej 1519 BE – Luang Por Plad Kong – Wat Bang Lamung (Chonburi. This is a Pim Niyom amulet (preferred and officially accepted collectors item in the Amulet community). Made from Pong Puttakun Sacred Powders. This example is a particularly beautiful amulet with extremely elegant markings and surface texture.

Pra Somdej with LP Kong image on rear face 2519 BE Wat Bang Lamung

This amulet is a very revered item for the people of Bang Lamung, and is an ever rarer to find amulet on the collector scene. It is made from pure Pong Puttakun powders and has primarily Metta, Choke Lap and Kong Grapan/Klaew Klaad powers. Pure Buddhanussati (Remembrance of the Triple Gem), and a focus point of Faith and reminder of ones Dhamma practice in everyday life. To wear a Pra Somdej amulet blessed by a monk of worthy reverence such as Luang Por Kong, is always an inspiration and moral support in helping oneself to maintain diligence in ones practice as a Buddhist.

To know and believe in the purity of the maker of the amulet, and to see the Buddha image on the front, is to remind oneself and have shame before one is about to misbehave or break a precept, and this in itself is a powerful protector to help one resist the Maras, by inducing shame in oneself for the impure thoughts n the presence of an emblem of purity one carries on ones person, namely the Pra Somdej. Shame is a source of suffering, but even the Lord Buddha said that delusions and conditioned thoughts can also be put to positive use until they are no longer needed, or can be escaped from, and so shame in this sense (Moral shame), is a healthy delusion to maintain whilst one still suffers the impurity of harmful or selfish thoughts. To allow a Buddha amulet to assist the mind in shaming itself into refraining from negative actions, thoughts or speech, is to use it for its true purpose.

Of course, even if you have never thought of this aspect of pure Buddhist amulet wearing, there remains the mysterious powers of the Thai Amulet, which will protect you and generate your prosperity and happiness. All Thai amulets have magical properties, but those amulets that are pure Buddhist are also a tool for maintaining Morality and Virtue, and Abstaining from Harmful or Negative thoughts speech and actions, as part of the practice of keeping the 5 Buddhist precepts which are integral daily practice of the Buddhist.
