Somdej Toh Pims – What You Should Knowadmin
The Sad Truth
I have always found it to be rather sad that that most collectors are under the illusion that amulets blessed by Pra Somdej Buddhachan Toh are expensive and well beyond their means, but I can tell you in absolute honestly nothing could be further from the truth. His amulets are far more common than most people realize and that includes experienced collectors.
Its not uncommon to hear the indoctrinated express a desire to own an amulet blessed by Somdej Toh but realistically were unlikely to ever be able to afford the multi-million Baht price ticket.yet sitting on my website are more than a few GENUINE Somdej Toh pims at less than 300.00 USD
Naturally one might suspect authenticity…Believe me when I say its all a marketing illusion, a slight of the hand honed over decades of practice by the elite or a small group of individuals often referred to as Sian Pra.who work in collusion with most major amulet societies who knowingly or otherwise continue to perpetuate the lies and myths, deceiving those that they supposedly serve. Such is their stranglehold many myths have becomes truths and those that dare to say otherwise are more often than not labeled charlatans.
You do not need to be any kind of expert in amulets to realize just how extensive this practice, and will continue to do so as long as we are taken in by the deception. In short this is commercial buddhism in its extreme
You only need to take the time to familiarize yourself with the well documented life and history of Somdej Toh to appreciate that much of the circumstantial evidence for blessing pims at other locations other than Wat Rakangs overwhelming.
As the years go by those that have a vested interest in the distortion and manipulation of historical fact, such as the main amulet societies, are loosing their stranglehold albeit painfully slowly
