Description

Pra Somdej, Pim Ket Bua Toom,
Wat Rakang, Pra Somdej Buddachan Toh


Amulets blessed by Somdej Phra Buddacharn Tho Phromrangsi are highly sought after by collectors, with many reaching values in excess of a million Baht.

Somdej Toh was born on the 17th April 2331 BE at Angthong Chaiyo. At the age of 122 he was adopted by the royal palace and made him a novice at Wat Intarawiharn, Bang Khun Prom, Bangkok. He entered monkhood at the age of 21. King Rama I announced him to be royal naga and sent him to Wat Rakang Kosittaram in BE 2350. It was here that he made his first batch of amulets in 2352 BE. These are now known as the early age pims and were crafted by village craftsman who lived in the Bannchanglor area close to Wat Rakang.

It is unfortunate that commercialism has often prevented these pims being recognized by sians (amuet experts) as authentic, referring to them as “Pim Talok”

Somdej Toh went on to create and bless more amulets during what is known as the middle age (2nd age) during the period of King Rama IV . These pims were far more durable and attractive being crafted by skilled craftsman from Wang Na, Wang Lang and Wang Luang. The addition of cement powder, referred to as “porcelain” cement greatly improved the strength and integrity. These craftsman also often used thuak, chart, rak and namthong as paint to protect the pims from cracking.

It is this paint when worn off that has led to the many distinctive surface patterns which are referred to commonly as Nga, Sangkhalok, Khai Prot and Nang Charakae to name a few.

Somdej pims from the last age were blessed during the reign of King Rama V around BE 2407 – BE 2415 with many hundreds of pims created by royal craftsman , especially Luang Wicharnchiaranai. Amuletrs made during the last age are easy to identify with the Buddha image being magestic with chest and shoulders dignified.

 

Even today it is extremely difficult to enter Somdej Toh pims into competition due to commercialism.  In fact most Somdej Toh pims are refused entry as a way to keep prices high. As such it is a pleasure to offer this superb pim with a FIRST PLACE competition certificate.

Somdej toh

The somdej powder or Pong Krittiyakom was made from at least 28 different main base components including:

Clay
Alumina rich clay
Cooked rice or flower
Banana or jack fruit meat
Flowers, rhizomes, stems and leaves of wahn (herbs)
Flowers use at the the alter, pollensd, stalks and leaves
Lead and various other metals
Candles, candle tears
Burned palm leaves
Resins and boat oil
Shell rock

Apart from the above components hundreds of other different auspicious and sacred materials have been used and in particular powder of sacred pencils (or Din Sor Mahachai), which can be sub-divided into 5 different varieties of sacred powder

Pong Pattamang(Kong Krapan) Invulnerability from bullets, knives, etc. Business will never make a loss
Pong BuddhakhunHappiness and blessings
Pong Tri Ni SinghaeEscape from disaster, protection on voyages
Pong Itti JaeCompassion and charm, business connections
Pong MaharatPower, protection from enemies . Control of subordinates

These white powders were mixed with sacred water that was squeezed from the leaves of seven kinds of Thai plant including

Baitumlueng
Yod Sawat
Yod Kalong
Yod Rakson
Chaiyapuek
Rach Puek
Jasmine

All of the constituents were mixed with other kinds of auspicious powders called Dinpong and Klisema, already having passed a blessing ceremony.

Kaeji Ajahns have known of the individual merits of these sacred powders for a long time, but Somdej Toh was the first with the ability to combine them all together. Pra Somdej Wat Rakang are ideal for multiple blessings and are thought to be highly efficacious and magical

Many other constituents of the Muan San (sacred mixture) are also known to have been used, for example:

Broken Pra Somkor
Broken benjapakee pims
Broken pra somdej amulets
Fragrant rice
Meteorite powder
Gold and silver peg powder
Joss stick powder
Ash and charcoal
Pollens
Pong Klai Saema
Klai Sao Taloong (white elephant powder)
Gold and silver sand powder
Mineral ore / Semi precious stone powder
Coloured rocks from Aunhui city in China

Pra Somdej Wat Rakang were created on three separate occasions across the reign of four monarchs.

a. The earliest pims were blessed during the reign of King Rama II and III 2352-2393, a total of 41 years.
b. The middle age batches were created using the skill of the Sib Moo craftsmen during the period of King Rama IV 2393-2407 BE.
c. The final batches were created using the skill of royal craftsman during the period IV and V 2407 – 2415, a period of 8 years.
d. The final batches were created using the skill of royal craftsman during the period IV and V 2407 – 2415, a period of 8 years.


Other Wat Rakang Pims

Pra Wat Kes, Angthong were created 3 times in three periods. The first batch being blessed at Wat rakang and kept at Wat Keschaiyo in 2393 BE. The second batch was also blessed at Wat Rakang to replace the missing Somdej pims looted after the chamber collapsed. The third batch blessed at Wat Rakang were also created to replace stolen amulets after a thief dug his way into the Kru

Interestingly as a lot of confusion over the amulets persisted some experts pronounced them as all fake.. In addition excess pims were also stored at Wat Phokriab which although identical to those at Wat Kes were also pronounced fake. Its a funny world where commercialism reigns.

Pra Somdej from the Kru at Wat Bang Khun Prom Mai Amatarot were blessed during a religous ceremony of the Thanakosate family held by Samien Tradung Thanakosate in 2413 BE, Somdej Toh was chairman of the monks and placed various pims in the Kru.

Marshall Praphat Charusatien reopned the Kru on the 28th November 2500 BE and only 2500 pims were recovered. Most of the original 84,000 pims has already been stolen. The stolen pims are referred to as “Pra Kru Kao”  and there is no logo on the reverse. The recovered pims were stamped with a logo  of Wat Mai Amatarot  and are referred to as “Pra Kru Mai”

There are also Pra Somdej pims of Wat Wang Na PraKaew made by Krom Phratchawangborworn Wichaicharn Chaowangna on three occasions. The third ceremony was dedicated to King Rama V when he ascended the throne in 2411 BE and was attended by Pra Somdej Toh, Luang Phor Lok Udon and Kaeji Ajahn from all over the country. Hundreds of thousands of pim were created  over a period of 12 months.
