Phra KhunPaen Phim ThrongPonYai Than Bua Neua Din (Earthen Base)

Filed under: About Amulets/Talisman,Available for Collectors — saengthai @ 11:55 pm

According to history, this batch of Phra KhunPaen should be over 600 years of age by now. Though immaculate condition but previous owner washed this antique piece to verify the amulet. It’s originally black lacquered as shown in the reference above. Luckily he did not washed it off entirely, still leaving some remnants of black laquer. He applied a coat of shellac over the amulet, that is why it looks new and shiny. It is definitely not suitable for those whom are not familiar with this phim because the original condition has been tempered with. But for the experts, it is an easy piece…and beautiful too.

It has very well balanced energy, from Kungkaphan (impenetrateability) to Maha Sanae ( Attraction), Mahalap (Luck), Maha Metta (Loving-Kindness) to Klaewklard (Avoiding danger). For those whom likes to wear one amulet only…one beautiful and powerful in all areas.

Ven. LP Tim Wat LahangLai’s Phim Phiset amulets

Filed under: About Amulets/Talisman,Available for Collectors — saengthai @ 1:35 pm

Rian Charoenporn (Progressive Blessings) 2517, Ven. LP Tim 85 years old. Rian Solid Gold. Special Gold casing. Ven. LP Tim made 16 pieces only, 14 belonged to very close luksits and 2 outsiders booking. All have numbers, codes and LP hand writing. Ven. LP wrote khom “Sak” which means success. But due to Ven. LP’s old age, his handwriting is very faint. Ven. LP Tim bless this piece for 7 days and 7 nights.

This is a special combination of LP’s original photo, kesa (hair), Phra KhunPaen Phraiguman Phim Lek, 3 pieces of Phra Pidta and 2 pieces of Phra Naaphrok. All which are Ven. LP Tim’s amulets. This collection is not meant for those whom likes to collect base on popularity of phim and acceptance of phim because this was decorated by luksit the way he like to wear them and then pluksek by Venerable again. Both are very strong in Choklap (luck) and Phokasap (wealth) factors.

I hope to share with those whom loves Phra Somdej amulets and Phrakatha Jinnabanchon on some information I have read from a book published from Phrakatha Jinnabanchon Chanting Society soon. So keep following.

Warnings! Beware!!!

Filed under: Katha — saengthai @ 12:35 pm

There has been numerous websites or weblogs that have hijacked our amulet photos and claim that it’s theirs. It has been for quite awhile already. I thanked all our Singaporeans and fellow Malaysians readers for bringing this up earlier.

But just to clear the air, we, SaengThai has never been affiliated with anybody nor have we authorised anybody to do any trading on our behalf or represent us!

I always believe in Karma and I came across this car sticker one day that says…” If you do not believe in God, you better be RIGHT!”.

This is just one thing that I never really liked about the amulets’ circle…much bickering and dishonesty.

We have always warn readers and potential collectors to never make empty promises on amulets but yet from time to time we have such people running into us. It is not about us, we share about things that we like. We enjoy meeting good people.  We profile collectors during our first few meetings, so we know what to expect from you. We have met and dealt with all sorts of people. But we don’t like the idea that collectors run into trouble…spiritually. One of such collector that we knew passed away due to such just this year itself. When one ran into such problems, it is as bad as hurting oneself with black magic. Whatever you do, isn’t good, problems here and there. Pain here and there. Restless sleep. So please, beware. We believe in the sacredness of all our collections, so please handle with care.

Venerable LP Thong Saksit (sacred) Wat Donyaipeuan

Filed under: About Amulets/Talisman — saengthai @ 2:07 pm

This incident was shared with me by Ven. LP Seua himself. The driver of this pickup, Khun Somchai (not his real name) visited Viharn LP Thong in Wat DonYaiPeuan and made a vow to quit drinking alchohol but returned to his old ways in less than a week. Thereafter he was involved in a very bad accident the same week. His wrecked pickup was sold for only THB50,000. When he was retrieved from the wreckage inside, he was still shaken and  seen hugging Ven. LP Thong 3inches image. He cheated death with just an eyebrow abrasion.

This 3 inches mini bucha was made by Ven. for tamboon this Kathina, chanted the entire pansa (3 months) both Ven. LP Seua, then Ven. LP Thong in His divine spirit. Ven. LP Seua advised, ” Please never take your vow or promise with Ven. LP Thong for granted! Ven. LP Thong is a sacred divine entity, he will punish those whom disrespect him. This is a good example that just happened, not to mention those that has happened before this!

The latest update as per last week on the progress on Ubosot of Wat DonYaiPeuan. Things are progressing well despite the economic setbacks in Thailand, all none the least, may the virtues and barami of Ven. LP Thong and Ven. LP Seua and of course the Triple Jewel bless their devotees and fellow disciples for their earnest effort in helping the building of this Ubosot. Special thanks to my Teacher, the Charoenporn family, SaengThai members, Ian Fay (Canada), Robby Chandra (Indonesia) and Mr. Chan Wai Leong (Australia). May all of them be bless with good health and prosperity in their lives.

Phra Pidta Roon Raek Raek, Pothan Kron Wat Bangsek

Filed under: About Amulets/Talisman,Available for Collectors — saengthai @ 12:43 pm

This phim has hand written yant on its base, just like an average Phra Pidta Pothan Kron would have.

The collectors’ market knew very little about this Phra Pidta. This Pidta was made when Pothan Kron was still practising in Songkhla Province, before Reverend became the Abbot of Wat Bangsek. Roon raek raek means very early batch. When we introduce this to our members about 5 years ago, most didnt dare to accept because it was not known then. We too did not post it in our website because we did not want others to go grabbing them. Now even in Thailand, they have found out this piece and publicize it, confirming our claim.

We SaengThai was the first one whom brought Phra Pidta Pothan Kron to KL some 20 over years ago when everyone was still collecting TaiSakphan (under the bridge amulet hawkers) things. How can we not know!  We are always the one whom brought phims that are not known yet into KL market eg. Ven. LP Phrom Wat Chongkae and others. Then others so call Sian Phra whom had very little knowledge claims that this or that are fakes only to eat their own words later. We are very low profile because we need not compete with the other traders whom does business. We are more of an antique amulet appreciation center with wide knowledge and experience. There is one famous outlet whom carries the most Phra Pidta Pothan Kron (displayed) in current market, came to visit us when nobody was around (afraid of being regconized) to certify that his Phra Pidta Pothan Kron is authentic or not! He claimed that he wants to wear for himself! I wonder what is the difference between those whom he displayed in his shop and the one he is holding?

Coming back to this phim abovementioned, now this phim has gotten light even in Bangsek but prices have steadily increased! And will go up further because very limited.

Phra Somdej Wat KhunIntraPramun, Angthong

Filed under: About Amulets/Talisman,Available for Collectors — saengthai @ 2:22 pm

When we first visited Wat Khun In, this big sleeping Buddha is all it has. Surrounded by large piece of greens. Monks and nuns will come and meditate here. That was about 5 years ago. And now…

In less than 3 years, this beautiful Bot…a very expensive Bot, stands grandly behind The Sleeping Buddha and also other building structures like the Hor Rakang, the Bell Tower and other have also been built. All this grand monuments and buildings are built from the proceeds from antique amulets of Phra Somdej Wat Khun Intrapramun discovered years ago. Though there are some parties that dont accept them as makings of Ven. Somdej Toh of Wat Rakang. That is because they have conflict of interest, they are so called experts and amulets traders for Phra Somdej Wat Rakang. If they were to accept that would mean that they may lose business. But any how, they didn’t say it wasn’t makings of Ven. Somdej Toh but they say that there isn’t enough evidence to support. But this group has been known by medias and serious Phra Somdej collectors and associations that they regularly make statements that slaps their own face. History tells, its a matter of whether you choose to listen or find them out yourself.

So you come to a point of juncture that you must ask yourself,” Are you collecting base on ears only or your own eyes too?” All this developments in Wat Khun Intrapramun send a very clear message… you can don’t accept but there are many that do. If this batch of Phra Somdejs are not good, you think so many people will want collect them and the status of Wat Khun In is officially a Wat because it now has a Bot. An important building to qualify to become a Wat status. This is what we call “Barami” or Perfection, quality of the Great Triple Gem. Imagine if you were to wear an amulet of such great Barami, would it have elevated your luck or status now?

Inside of this beautiful Bot.

The main Buddha altar in the Bot. These photos were taken early April 2014.

This is Phra Somdej Kruk Khun Intrapramun Phim Yai

This is Phra Somdej Kruk Khun Intrapramun Phim PhraPrathan

The image of the left is the one and only reference from the foundation that oversees this batch of antique amulets and inside this reference there are many photos of all the Phra Somdej Kruk Khun Intrapramun that belongs to ministers, high chief ministers and even ex-president of Thailand. In Thailand, they are expected to declare their assets to the government. That is why they have written proof but permission have been obtained by the foundation from the owners before they publish this reference. The image on the right is the value of Phra Somdej Phim PhraPrathan, in 2552 it was already valued at THB30,000. Recently, one of our member went to Wat Khun Intrapramun in Angthong himself to inquire himself, temple itself is already giving out at THB40,000 if there’s still any.

So you are either one of such lucky ones to have collected while it was still reasonable then or you have been left out.

Here’s two pieces of each Phim mentioned above. There are also many phims but this are the two which this official reference published.

Phim PhraPrathan (front)

Phim PhraPrathan (back)

This is also another Phim PhraPrathan ( front and back)

This is Phim Yai (front and back)

The above is also another Phim Yai. All these are unwashed.
