Phra Somdej Wat KhunIntraPramun, Angthong

August 1st, 2014

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?

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.

Ven. LP Thong 9″ bucha Wat Donyaipeuan.

July 24th, 2014

The photo above is Ven. LP Thong originally from Wat Tham Jakgajan Thong in Lopburi. But now Ven. is always with Ven. LP Seua of Wat Donyaipeuan.  Ven. LP Thong is Ven. LP Seua’s teacher, Ven. LP Seua is his chosen disciple. Even Ven. LP Thong passed away long ago but Ven. is always around to help and guide Ven. LP Seua. Venerable is someone we refer to as saksit keramat or sacred teacher. I still remember, even though we always invite Ven. LP Seua along with his lay disciple Ah Pui to our center in Kuala Lumpur. But one of our member whom have just joined us saw 2 monk instead with 1 lay disciple. I thought he was joking with me but he was serious he asked. When I showed him Ven. LP Thong’s photo and he regconised it was this old Reverend. Then I told him, Venerable passed away long ago,  his jaw dropped!!! But I assured him that he became a celestial or thevada now guiding Ven. LP Seua always.

Ven. LP Thong is highly respected by villagers in Singhburi, patrons of Wat Donyaipeuan, Ven. LP Seua and not to mentioned Ven. LP Pae of Wat Phikhunthong. When Reverend was still alive, he usually call Ven. LP Pae, Phrakru and Ven. LP Pae refer to Reverend as Archan. Reverend is highly respected by many because Reverend has helped many to fulfill their wished or get their problem solved.

This year we would like to sponsor 30 9″ Ven. LP Thong bucha to help raise Bot building funds for Wat Donyaipeuan. Each sponsor of RM1,500 will get one bucha. It will only be ready after pansa or kathina.

We get a skilled craftsmen to carve the mould. This 9″ bucha is the first time temple is coming out with.

Ven. LP Seua is admiring the sample mould.

Ven. LP is satisfied with the look of the bucha and approved the project. Ven. LP attithan jit with the bucha.

Don’t miss this opportunity!!! Book now.

It states here this coming 19th October 2014, Sunday. Any sole or joint sponsor of Kathin contribution of THB9,999, Venerable LP Seua will present them a 3 inch Ven. LP Thong bucha ( sample below). This batch of bucha just like our 9 inch, will be ploksek during pansa. After Ven. LP Seua ploksek in the morning at the chanting hall, Ven. LP Thong, himself will be present in spirit to ploksek too. The hall will be vacated after Ven. LP Seua finished his puthaphisek. This will be done during the entire pansa. This mini 3 inch can be placed both in the home for reverence and car for protection too!

This is Ven. LP Thong’s image in his viharn not far away from Ven. LP Seua’s kuti. Whenever Ven. LP Seua is busy or feeling unwell, if layties come to seek Ven. LP Seua to help solve their problems, Ven. will direct them to go to the viharn and lit 9 joss sticks and tell Ven. LP Thong their problems. Ask Reverend to help solve their problems and “gae bon” fulfill your promise by offering to lit fire crackers to Reverend outside his viharn.

This is the cave Reverend stays for his practise, Wat Tham Jakgajan Thong. Now beside this cave, there is a temple  now.

The stairs to track up to his cave. Along this path are some worn down kutis.

This is where Reverend passed away in one of this kuti, due to old age.

This Pu Reusi is right at the entrance of the cave. This Reusi image was made by Reverend.

This is where Reverend sits in meditation. It’s a very cooling and peaceful surrounding. It is said that whenever Ven. LP Seua visits this cave, there will be very loud wringing sound made by cicadas. It is in this cave that lives 2 tigers, mother and child when Reverend was staying here. Reverend said even tigers such as this two that lives with him has good barami and virtues not lesser than humans because the tigers will pay respect before leaving the cave for their activities.

Reverend sits facing this Big Buddha image, also made by Reverend. This is a very spiritual cave, people whom are sensitive enough will be able to sense that this cave has occupants. Not many people can come up here, not even the monks in the nearby vicinity can make use of this place as they like. I have asked Ven. LP Seua before what is in that cave, Reverend didnt really say exactly but he said it has some very ancient things here.

Maybe there will be some whom will ask, “Why and what is Ven. LP Thong bucha good for?” From our own experiences and those of villagers in Singhburi and Ven. LP Seua’s close laity diciples, Ven. LP Thong’s image is good for not only protection from danger but also to help solve our lives’ problem. That is why they call Reverend “saksit keramat” or sacred. One of Ven. LP Seua’s laity disciple was an average entrepreneur dealing with oil and gas. It is a very small business. 2 years ago he came to Ven. LP Seua for consultation. He wanted to enter into a business tender by PTT (Thai national petroleum company) but Ven. said his chances are not strong because other bigger competitors whom have many years of experience are entering into the tender too. He asked if Ven. LP Seua had any form of blessings to help him gain a better advantage. Ven. LP Seua asked him to revere to Ven. LP Thong at the viharn, tell reverend the issue at hand and asked him for his blessings. Ven. LP Seua instructed him to use our special joss-sticks (most saleable item in temple) everyday to reach Ven. LP Thong and ask him for his blessings. He emerged as the wining bidder, last year he made much donations and contributions to Wat Donyaipeuan. This year he sponsored for Ven. LP Seua’s birthday last May. His family’s livelihood had increased many folds positively.

According to Ven. LP Seua, Ven. LP Thong has reached the 10th level in Celestial realm, now in Thevada ( Celestial ) form.

Phra Somdej Bangkhungphrom Ven. Somdej Toh Phrommarangsi

July 2nd, 2014

This is the first Phra Somdej Bangkhungphrom I featured so far. There are some collectors out there that preferred to collect solid confirmed antique collections. Just like one of the very first Phra Somdej Phim Yai Wat Rakang we featured in 2009, it was taken immediately by a VIP after looking through the Thai Amulet magazine that featured the same piece that we had. Such a piece is really hard to find and it was confirmed a ‘real thing’. Nowadays, even if it comes with a certificate, you have to worry if it’s a real thing. But if it’s featured publicly in a popular Thai amulet magazine by a Sian Phra then it may be a different thing. If such a phim is not authentic, the Sian Phra’s reputation and his shop’s reputation will be on the chopping board.

Our Phra Somdej Bangkhungphrom (the first on the left) is also featured by this Thai amulet magazine years ago. We are proud owners that some of our phims are featured by Thai antique amulet magazines. We dont mind to divulge the history of ownership of this phim. It belonged to the Deputy Abbot of Wat Phikunthong, Singburi, Ven. Maha Sampann (photo below). Ven. said this before he got his piece from the Abbot of Wat Ketchaiyo. One day, Ven. dreamt that he got something precious from Ven. Somdej Toh in his dream in Wat Ketchaiyo. When Ven. got to Wat Ketchaiyo and relayed his premonition to the Abbot of Wat Ketchaiyo. Then the Abbot brought out this Phra Somdej and showed it to Ven. Maha Sampann. It was found up in the old chedi in Wat Ketchaiyo. That was how Ven. Maha Sampann came to own this piece.

Kaew Sarapat Nert means the Jewel that Fulfills yr Wishes. This batch is now available for booking. After booking period closed, prices will be higher.

Phra Somdej Phrokbo Wat Rakang II

June 23rd, 2014

Phra Somdej Phrokbo Wat Rakang I

Some collectors were asking for this phim that has not got any rak on it. Here it is. Below is the reference.

Phra Somdej Arahang, Ven. LP Thom, Wat Bang Klam, Songkhla

June 23rd, 2014

We had this phim more than a decade ago, we took from Ven. LP Thom by hand (upload photo later). Respond from those collectors whom wore them were fascinating, very saksit ( responsive to wishes). After such long while, we bump into this piece recently. Though chipped at the left corner but otherwise still in a very good condition. But according to Ven. LP Thom, Ven. accreditted the saksit-ness of this Phra Somdej to the pong. The pong was taken from a cave where once upon a time dwelled by an important person in Thai history that spent his last years practising there.

Phra Somdej Sivali 2521, Ven. LP Koay Wat Kosit, Chainart

June 23rd, 2014

This black colored piece is called Neur Bailan.

When it comes to popular Phra Sivali amulets, Ven. LP Koay Wat Kosit is definitely among the top Gaeji Archans who can make Phra Sivali amulets effectively.

Maha Sivali Thera

Why Phra Sivali? Phra Sivali, one of the Arahants, that is reckoned and declared by Gautama Buddha for his auspiciousness. Because Gautama The Buddha had great faith in Ven. Sivali. Quoting from our previous write-up “The Buddha, noticing that Sivali was fulfilling a previous aspiration, declared him “foremost among monks in obtaining requisites.” He instructed monks who were traveling on long, difficult journeys through uninhabited terrain to be accompanied by Sivali to ensure that they would have their requisites met.”

If during the lifetime of Buddha, Maha Sivali Thera is important. What more laities like you and me living in this mundane world! If we can only have the blessing from the barami of Phra Arahant Sivali, life would have been better.

At the back of the Phra Somdej image, is the image of Phra Arahant Sivali with the initial of Nak-Cak-Lik-Tik, symbolizing wealth creations .

Phra Benjapahkee : Phra Kamphaeng Somkor

June 19th, 2014

This is a set of Phra Benjaphakee, The Five Grand Buddha Amulets. We have featured them all from time to time. Generally,

1. Phra Somdej is for success

2. Phra Rod is for evading misfortunes

3. Phra Somkor is for wealth

4. Phra Nang Phaya is for metta and elite status

5. Phra Pong Supan is for weapon impenetrability and harm to our body

This post we will be sharing on an immaculate piece of Phra Somkor. Perfectly kept in a good condition.

As there are also many phims/blocks. This one featured in Nakmo magazines are likely from the same mould but ours are in a better condition. It was mentioned in this Nakmo magazine that in 2543 a beautiful piece could reach as high as THB10,000,000. But then there again, that is what most so-called SianPhra claimed. Just like Phra Somdej WatRakang, train yourself to see and identify it yourself and you will perhaps agree with us that there is more than meets the eye.

Among Kamphaengphet Buddha antique amulets, those featured in the article above belongs to the ThungSetthi group, ThungSetthi means millionaires’ that owns padi fields. And in within this group, Phra Somkor is the most sought after when it comes to amassing wealth.
