Filed under: Katha — saengthai @ 6:21 pm

This piece belongs to the boatman who use to ferry Ven. LP Pae across the river which now Ven. had built a connecting bridge. If you were to scrutinize this phim above properly you will be able to spot gold takruts on the surface. At the base of the phim you can actually see the gold takrut. Ven. inserted 3 takruts; gold, silver and copper, at it’s base.

Bucha Ven. LP Pae, Wat PhiKhunThong 2508

Filed under: Katha — saengthai @ 2:43 pm

The 1st , 2nd and 3 rd batch is from the same mould but only the 1st batch (roon raek) writes PhraKru Si ( LP Pae), Ven.’s  Buddhist name. Ven. was 60 years in age at that time. This is also moulded in temple. At the base are covered with earth and it was believed that Ven. inserted takruts of gold, silver and copper, just like Ven. has inserted into His Phra Somdej. But don’t take our words for it because Ven. didn’t inform us neither was it stated in the references that was made public. But we heard it from close associates when Ven. was making the bucha together with them.

Can Phra Saksit (Sacred Amulets) help me overcome my problems?

Filed under: About Amulets/Talisman,Katha — saengthai @ 1:37 pm

Phra Khun Paen PhraiGuman, Ven. LP Tim Wat LahangLai.

At the back is Takrut Salika and Phra Kring bell balls.

Thank you for the response over the last few days on my postings on Ven. LP Phrom collections. Well it’s either I haven’t updated my blog for sometime, so much that some of you misses me or it’s the attraction on Ven. LP Phrom collections. I guess it the latter!

I personally think it’s a very good question posed. I have answered that before in another posting but will share my opinions again here.

Let’s take for example, I have mentioned in my posting that Phra Ven. LP Phrom Wat ChongKae is saksit, one of the very sought after high-end amulet collections. Does that mean that all whom wears his images or collections will be bestowed with miracles that changes their lives for the better? No, in my opinion. It’s very simple, if it is then the world would not have poor people or disaster. It’s all about Karma and your affinities with the Teachers. That’s why in SaengThai, we always advise amulet enthusiasts not to forget the very important amulet that you must own…the amulet of Barami (merits) . To us, this is utmost important and it goes hand in hand with the amulets you wear dearly. This is one amulet that no one can take away or destroy. And its value will only appreciate with your earnest and sincere practise. If you sincerely hope that your amulets you wear will response as you wish, then earn by practising the Dhamma which the Teachers hold very dear to their lives. Strive to cultivate virtues, meditations and merits. The energies that amulets are endowed with can still be affected negatively by the interplanetary movements or improper handling of amulets but the Amulet of Barami rises above them.

Whether you can get to wear good Teachers collections is another matter. We have seen many well to do people whom can afford for eg. a genuine piece of Phra Pidta Ven. LP Kron Wat Bangsek but the pieces he hung over his neck are fakes. And he can still be proud of it. People with their own cup full ego are difficult to add anymore tea of enlightenment, it will just overflow. So we kept quiet and let him be happy. That is why I say affinity, it’s something not just money can buy.

So in our opinion, earn to help you favorite amulet to  response as your wishes by practising:

1. Accumulating merits. Perform dana regularly and sincerely.

2. Observe your precepts. Observe all 5 would be great, if not at least 2, if not 3.

3. Daily chantings. Even simple Namo Tassa… will do if one does with with great concentration and reverence.

4. Meditations. Regular practice even if it’s just a couple of minutes after your chantings.

5. Invite your amulets before wearing over you neck : Eg

Namo Tassa…3x

Puthang Arathananeng

Dhammang Arathananeng

Sangkhang Arathananeng

Khapachow Khor Arathana Khun Praputhachow, Khun PhraDhammakchow, Khun PhraSangkhakchow, Khun Bida Lek Manda, Kruba Archan Saksit Thang Lai, ( then follow with

mentioning the names of your amulets eg. Pothan ChaoKhun Wat bangsek or LP Phrom Wat ChongKae ), then just wish before wearing over your neck.

Locket Phisek 2516, made 9 pieces only.

There were many inquiries among our members why do we fascinate Ven. LP Phrom images or collections and why is it that Ven.’s collection are high in value. Well to share just a bit of info. Ven. LP Phrom is a very well respected Gaeji Archan then till now because Ven. is Wachasit (sacred mouth). During His time and even now if there’s ever a qualifying blockbuster of the top Gaeji Archan in Thailand. Ven. will be in Top 10. In Thailand among Ven. LP Phrom fans will know this incidents that happened that garnered much respect and reverence from laities:

1. There was this Mae Chee (nun) that wanted to return to household life after practising for years. She has fallen in love and wants to get married.  She visited Ven. to seek His blessing but Ven. said no need to give up her practise of years. But she went ahead anyhow…then one night when she was being intimate with her lover. Her lover got a fright of his life!….he saw that she had a male genitalia! But of course she is a normal healthy 100% female.

2. A quite good looking girl always travel to and from work using a regular route and kidnapped by a rapist. The rapist left in a shocking lurch at the midst of the struggle in the bushes because he couldn’t find the female genitalia…(where it should be!).

3. A well and prominent business was kidnapped at gunpoint. Being locked away in cuffs, he prayed very hard to Ven. LP Phrom, chanting his heart mantra (will provide later) . The cuffs miraculously snapped open! Dressed only in his boxers, he ran for his life and escaped!

4. There was this incident that his lay disciple gave out PhaKhaoMa (Thai Batik) to patrons whom requested. But he didn’t take from Venerable’s hand or get His permission to buy and let Ven. bless them first. The lay disciple just bought from market and handed to the patrons. When Ven. found out the matter, Ven. chidded him “Ba! (Crazy!) and true enough, his lay disciple lost his mind eventually.

5. A lady ChaoKoayTeow seller just right in front of the temple is a regular patron whom make offerings to Ven. LP Phrom. One fine day, Ven. told her, “Yom (dear householder), why billionaires like you still work so hard?” She laughed heartily and said, ” Venerable Father, please don’t tease me. I am just a noodles seller!”  Ven. LP asked why she don’t wished to be a billionaire? She said she don’t even dared to imagine…but then she re-quipped…being millionaire, I don’t mind at all. Then Ven. said OK, you will be a millionaire then. True enough, she struck a fortune and became a millionaire!

These are just some of Ven. true life incidents that has made Ven. so popular till today. Do bear in mind, not all amulets can be speculated years after years with value increasing. Amulets without great substance in energy and sacredness seldom make it into list of highly demanded or sought after.

And the other reason why we loved Ven. collection much is because Ven. has said himself before: Other than people talking bad behind you, which his amulets cannot prevent. His amulets encompass everything, from luck to protection, all a laity would desire. And from our decades of experience with Ven. collections…..how true it is!

You may see more of our Ven. LP Phrom collections (still have yet to update all of them…keep reading) at www.myphrasomdej.blogspot.com .

Phra Phim Rasami Mondop Waek Man Roon Kerd Suk, Ven. LP Boon Kerd Wat KhaoDin

Filed under: About Amulets/Talisman,Katha — saengthai @ 1:37 am

 

This phim dark brown in color is made from Wan MahaMongkhun.

 

This phim white in color is made from Pong Buddhakhoon.

Rasami means radiance of bright light,

Mondop is a structure of a throne,

Waek man means unveils the curtain of the throne.

This amulet’s iconography represents the bright radiance light from an Enlighthen One. The radiating brightness of Him reveals and shine forth. This amulet is useful especially for those whom are going through tough times or lack of luck. It is made by Ven. LP Boon Kerd Wat KhaoDin, Chainart.

This is Ven. LP being helped by one of us , Khun Ae, also his disciple whom have now returned to lay life.

 

Ven. LP Boon Kerd is of Ven. LP Gop lineage ( refer to locket on the left, the photo of Ven. LP Gop is at top left corner, Ven. LP Obasi is at top right corner and Ven. LP Boon Kerd at the center. ). He is direct disciple of Ven. LP Obasi ( refer to photo of locket on the right.) For those whom haven’t met Ven. before will find Ven. rather strange because Ven. may just suddenly talks to nothing in the air. No!, Ven. is not a mental but Ven. is just like his Teachers, Ven. LP Obasi and Ven. LP Gop, they can see celestial beings from other realms and communicate with them. Strange but true. We often receive phrataps sadet/relics borne from air, from Ven. . The photo above shows one of us helping Ven. down to his kuti, Ven. actually descended from the mountain cave above to collect the relics. From time to time, celestials beings will inform Ven. that they have brought him relics and kept in the mountain above.

At the back of this amulets are Yant Budh and Nak Mak Pak Thak or Earth, Fire, Water and Wind. It symbolize completeness. And at the bottom is written Kerd Suk which also means happiness is born.

E Rak Ja Kha Tha Rak Sa, Thi Hang Jak Tho Ro Thi Nang, Phi Sam Ra Ro Bu Sa Bu… commonly knows as the Katha of Eight Directions and also Yant Kropetch (The Diamond Shield).

Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru or Phra Kring

Filed under: About Amulets/Talisman,Katha — saengthai @ 4:56 pm

 

Solid Gold Phra Kring Wat Suthat 2536, last batch being moulded in front of Wat Suthat’s Bot

Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru, commonly known as Phra Kring or The Medicine Buddha is widely and popularly revered in Mahayana Buddhist countries like China, Tibet or Taiwan. Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru made its way into Thailand’s Theravad tradition due to the influx of Chinese migrants or businessmen whom travelled to Siam Kingdom then. It is a popular practise then, when they were to travel afar, these Chinese will pay visit to Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru for safety and business prosperity. As we all have known, many Chinese then have subsequently migrated to Siam Kingdom and settled for good.

Photo above: Rooplor Phra Kring Na Chin (Chinese look) and Na India (Indian look) .

Due to long trips away from home, eventually, amulets of Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru were made for Chinese to carry when they are away abroad for long. They called it ‘YauShiFwo’ or The Medicine Buddha. According to some reference the ball bearing that rings inside the amulet emulates the Mahayana chantings that uses bells. But the Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru is made different as compared with Thailand. According to Mahayana tradition, the history of His Bodhistavahood and Enlightenment was inscribbed and melted together with the metals to make the amulets. In Theravad tradition, a complusory sets of yants/takruts and preferably navak metals are used.

The history of making Phra Kring in Thailand dates back to King Naresuan and Phra Somdej Panaret’s time in Ayuddhaya. The tamra or scripture of making Phra Kring states that in order to make an effective or saksit Phra Kring; a few sets of yants must be included, there is more than 108 types of yants in takruts form. However the tamra was lost in wartimes but this ancient scripture was inherited by Somdej Ma of Wat SamPloem decades later. Then it was Somdej Pavarit of Wat Bovorn that has inherited the the knowledge of making a good Phra Kring. But then too, Phra Kring wasn’t as popular until Phra Sangharat Pae of Wat Suthat revived the tradition and strive to seek the knowledge of making Phra Kring saksit.

Photo above : Phra Kring Pavarit, made less than 100pieces only.

How Phra Sangharat Pae started was because of his Teacher, Somdej Vanarat Daeng, was miraculously healed by holy water prepared with a piece of Kring Pavarit. Ven. Sangharat Pae was very enthusiastic with the effective healing abilities of Phra Kring and had set upon a firm mind to research and study the makings of Phra Kring. And Phra Kring Wat Suthat set to became famous under his makings.

Phra Sangharat Pae did claim that only Wat Suthat make the best Phra Kring. Ven. said so was because Wat Suthat or in full,  Wat Suthat Thepwararam is one of Thailand’s six most important temples. Phra Sisakayamuni is the principal Buddha Statue of the temple. This Buddha Statue is placed over the heart of the city in correspondence with Tamrab Mahapichaisongkram and the meaning of Pang Marn Vichai Style, that is the victory over the demon. The name Wat Suthat Thepwararam means the temple in the heavens, where celestial guardians and angels protects. Plus the fact that before the end of 2536, all the famous Phra Krings of Wat Suthat was moulded in front of the Bot, a sacred and mythical space oversee by Phra Sisakayamuni. That is why the Phra Krings were all very saksit, but now they no longer mould them as such. In fact they seldom reveal where they mould them now.

Photo above: Phra Kring 3 inch bucha Navakloha 2542, this is made in accordance to the formula of Phra Sangharat Pae. It was not sold as per during launch in 2542 in Wat Suthat, but you must have collected a certain sum of new Phra Kring collections and you are only entitled one! Very long queue!!!

Photo above illustrates the materials used and also Phra Kring Phra Sangharat Pae was included as a raw item.

The 12 vows of Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru or Phra Kring

In accordance to Medicine Buddha Sutra, Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru made 12 great vows. He is attended to by two bodhisattvas symbolizing the sun and moon respectively: Suryaprabha and Candraprabha.

The Twelve Vows
The Twelve Vows of the Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru upon attaining Enlightenment, according to the Medicine Buddha Sutra;

  1. To illuminate countless realms with his radiance, enabling anyone to become a Buddha just like him.
  2. To awaken the minds of sentient beings through his light of lapis lazuli.
  3. To provide the sentient beings with whatever material needs they require.
  4. To correct heretical views and inspire beings toward the path of the Enlightment.
  5. To help beings follow the Moral Precepts, even if they failed before. Especially those whom are in jail and repented.
  6. To heal beings born with deformities, illness or other physical sufferings.
  7. To help relieve the destitute and the sick.
  8. To help women who wish to be reborn as men achieve their desired rebirth.
  9. To help heal mental afflictions and delusions.
  10. To help the oppressed be free from suffering.
  11. To relieve those who suffer from terrible hunger and thirst.
  12. To help clothe those who are destitute and suffering from cold and mosquitoes.

Katha Phra Buddha Bhaisatjayaguru or Phra Kring (In Pali)

Namo Bhagavate Bhaisatjayaguru Vaithuraya Phrabharajaya Tathagata Yarahate Samyak Sambuddhayak Om Bhaisajye Bhaisajya Samuragate Sawahak.

Preparations of the making of Phra Kring Theravad Tradition

These are only parts of the yants/takruts. There are many more compulsory yants to effectively make Phra Krings. Yant Kamchat is a good example, it is yants for dispelling anything that is undesirable to you.

Those big bulk of metals are navakloha, yants, old Phra Krings or the tree branches either from Somdej Pavarit or Phra Sangharat Pae and takruts.

Navakloha metals are preferred because according to Somdej Panaret ( King Naresuan’s Teacher ). Navakloha metals when immersed into clean water for 4 hours or more will energised the water with healing abilities.
