The 5 grand amulets are the top of the cream of amulets. They all come from different areas and also eras. It symbolized that Buddhism survived many centuries in Thailand. These amulets are not only potent in terms of barami (boonyarit) and also power (iitirit), as each of them are categorized in terms of their efficacy.  Ownership of class and prestige.

I have been waiting for an opportunity to come across this for some time now, true enough this opportunity presents to me by itself. I have always reminded amulet enthusiasts to be careful when it comes to certificates.Now more than ever in Thailand such Sian Phra Somdej ( Somdej amulets specialist) calling themselves Archan ( Teacher). The Archan or his group that certifies this Phra Somdej batch is also very popular in Thailand and has many followers. Their Somdejs that come with the certificates shown above are not expensive, generally  ranging from as low as RM5,000 to RM20,000 depends on condition. With some even lower or higher. But even though certified by them but if you were to bring to another Somdej Wat Rakang group that is also very popular, they may reject. But their collections are premium with values exceeding hundreds of thousand to millions. But they both are popular and have many followers (mostly accessible on YouTube). So now the ball bounces back into your court! Which group are you following? Do you want to be a victim of such amulet politics? Or are you serious enough to consider only the knowledge of identifying a genuine Somdej?

Mai Tao Pothan Dam, Wat Mai Naparam, Tak Bai

This set of mai tao are early batch made by Pothan himself, those whom whent to visit Pothan and collect from his hand will agree with me. Look at the brasshead, the skin of sort-of rust developed, tells the age of it. This was when Pothan isn’t really famous yet in the mid 90s. For those whom wants to see for yourself, Pothan’s hand writing yant, remember it for yourself. Now many simply claimed that its Pothan’s but learn to see it and identify for yourself. It comes in a set of two. Only for serious collectors only. This is made from Mai Sak, Sak means power!

Many people asked me how good is Pothan Dam’s Mai Tao. In my opinion, it has to be good because they are frequently being seek out. Ever since being disciple of Archan Phrachuab, Samnak KhaoOr Pattalung, I only carried the Mai Tao my teacher gave me ( for your information mai tao is from KhaoOr. Khao Or teachers usually carry a mai tao, a luk phrakan (108 beads) and meed mor). But from my experiences of my collector’s, the feedback was;-

a. good in terms of enhancing aura of superiority of a person. My collector had lesser staff problems with it.

b. one successful(now) developer of KLCC condominiums, went through a bad stage in business life. We brought him to visit Pothan Dam. It was Pothan Dam’s holy bathe that helped him and the mai tao. He is s strong follower of Tibetan Buddhism but he carried Pothan’s mai tao all this while. So I guess, it had to mean something to him.

c. One local bomoh in kelantan, had ever used Pothan’s mai tao for exorcism. The victim recovered with just one session of treatment. (it could be a mild case, i didn’t asked)

I will provide the katha and instruction of use and care, only to the new owner.

Rishis, what or who are they?

rishi2

I have always wanted to write about Rishis but have never gotten down to. Friends close to me knew I have always been a enthusiast collector for Rishi amulets and buchas. The following sharings are mainly from Ven. LP Seua’s teachings and a recorded conversation and experientials teachings between a disciple and his teacher, a saint, in India. Some wrote it as Reusee or reusi but it is basically referring to the same being. Rishi literally means Seer. A seer who sees with the divine eye of perception, who hear with the divine ears, everything that has happened in the past. Anything that a Rishi sees or perceives becomes a reality.

rishi3Rishis are very different from ordinary humans like you and me. They are immortal beings who lives for spans of time which are almost inconceivable to us humans. Rishi is an ethereal being of the highest class, one who is almost totally unlimited, who can travel anywhere in the cosmos and do anything at all. They can even play about with genes and chromosomes.

In the Vedic ages, each Rishi will have their own Gotra or in our current term, lineage. Their members in the gotra share the same genes and chromosomes which enables them to easily succeed at a particular variety of sadhana (mode of practise). As civilizations sets in and people have gotten more materialistic and as time passes by it has become more difficult to transmit one’s spiritual lineage to one’s child via the gotra system. So the kula system is now preferred. Kula means family of the like minded shadakas or practitioner whom follows a similar path toward reality.

A Rishi image inside the cave where Ven. LP Thong practised for more than a decade. It’s a complete forest then with no electricity, water not to even mention people. But according to Ven. LP Seua, Ven. LP Thong has informed him that in this cave lives a very ancient being that is not to be disturb. Ven. LP Thong lives in harmony with this ethereal being for decades. Until now, this cave is unhabited.

Waikhru rituals with Ven. LP Seua of Wat DonYaiPeuan, Singhburi is similar with the kula systems, where we establish a connection with all the Rishis in the universe and our ancestral teachers on a regular basis for those whom are sharing a common mode of practice. I still remember last year waikhru in 2015, a new young man was brought in to be initiated too because some being was very adamant into taking his as his disciple. The young man refused to but was given a hell lots of problems. Ven. LP Seua invited the ethereal being to come into the young man to straighten things up. A Rishi came into the young man’s body. He thanked Ven. LP Seua for the waikhru rituals for the teachers and said he was very happy to participate  and spoken with Ven. LP what he wanted of  the boy. Maybe because we are in the urban livings now or there could be a karmic linked between this boy and the Rishi but Rishi can create a body for himself whenever he pleases and whenever he is through with that body, he can dissolve it. In this way a Rishi can know every particle of every dimension because he knows every characteristic of and has experienced every possible womb. That is also why a Rishi is an embodiment of motherliness and why there is so much to learn from a Rishi, if you can ever locate one.

There was a craze many years ago about this strange monk named LuangPu Suang in Sakaew, if I have not mistaken. Nobody knew where he came from but almost 4 generations of people in the village have seen him. He lives in a hut in the middle of a padi field. If the rumuors are true he could be at least 300 years of age, died 3 times but cameback alive again 3 times. LuangPu have passed away and  has not cameback since decades ago though. People referred him as Thevada Lern Din Pu Rishi Dabot. He has been rumoured to be another Rishi. Archan Suthorn, a famous amulet magazine writer told me last year thathe met LuangPu Suang couple of times and he isn’t a normal being but a psyhic.

Rishis are great scientist. Many of their findings are documented in the Vedas, without sophisticated telescopes and space rockets. Rishis have mentioned the nature of the planets and their influences on all beings on Earth and Earth herself. Below is an image of a Rishi that was in India and his achievements on the medical field.

Though we do not know why, but Rishis upon coming to Earth, they have somehow chose to reside in India, especially the Himalayan areas. I believe some are still on Earth, especially in places far from human’s community. One of my close associates in Thailand have been to Cambodia with Archan Dam (previously Ven. LP Dam of Wat SanThitTham) to the Phnom Kulen mountain. Initially when Archan Dam was starting to built his temple in Sak Kaew more than a decade ago, we SaengThai was the first to sponsor him. In his initial years, Archan Dam never dabble into human bones mixing them into amulets. The initial powders he used was given by this Rishi Khao Kulen, a powerful and strong powders . He called it Pong MahaPuth.

Phra Ruesi Khao Kulen Loi Ongk Statuette with original temple boxIt was believed that Archan Dam used to spent several months in the Phnom Kulen mountain region in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. The Phnom Kulen mountain range has special historical significance to Cambodians, because this is the place where King Jayavarman II (c. 770-835) founded the ancient Khmer Empire (802-1431) to declare independency from the Sailindra dynasty (c. 750-850) from Java, Indonesia. To this day Phnom Kulen is an important pilgrimage site for the people of Cambodia. Likewise, the holy mountain is considered an auspicious place for Buddhist monks and Brahmin ascetics to practice austerities and renunciation. During his stay in Phnom Kulen, Archan Dam dedicated his time to intense meditation practice in the cave of the sacred mountain. In the dark nights of his solitary retreat, Luang Por Dam was reportedly visited by Rishi Khao Kulen; i.e., the mystical guardian of Phnom Kulen.  Though in later years, Archan Dam focussed more into human bones mixtures of amulets ( after being poisoned his mind by irresponsible amulet traders in Kuala Lumpur. ) but I have to admit that his Waikhru is very extensive and delibrate, usually 3 days and 3 nights. I believe Archan Dam did received knowledge from this Rishi because his amulet energies are very different.

rishi1

Rishis are in charge of the universe.  In the beginning of times, very ancient Vedic times, Lord Brahma (The 4 faced Brahma God also popularly known as  ???), the Lord of Creation, created several divine beings to assist Him in Creation of the world we now know today. Among these divine beings, are the Sapta Rishis, seven of them namely;
1. Rishi Mareesi
2. Rishi Atthiri
3. Rishi Aangiras
4. Rishi Brighu
5. Rishi Pulasthiyar
6. Rishi Siruthu and
7. Rishi Vashistar
The Navagrahas (the 7 planets;Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Saturn, Mercury,Jupiter and 2 shadow planets; Ragu and Kethu), 9 planets are descendants of these Sapta Rishis, they are blood relatives.  These Navagrahas were created by Lord Brahma to exercise control over all beings, mortals or immortals on Earth. The Chinese were known to be strong believers of Bazi (the mysterious destiny codes of date and time of birth of an individual), it all stems from these Navagrahas.

Rishis are very advanced in spirituality. Rishis sees the truth. This perception of truth spontaneously manifests in the form of mantras.For those who loves to learn and practise mantras, we have the Rishis to thank.I still remember in my early years with Ven. LP Seua, I used to place figurines of Rishis in my centre as decors. Ven. LP discouraged me from such practise. Ven. LP advised that I should either revere it properly on the altar or seal it away. Ven. LP said Rishis are our teachers, whenever Ven. LP himself runs into Rishis images, he too has to raise his palms to venerate Rishis.
On Earth, Rishis has a strict code of conduct in their spiritual life. They will begin before dawn by practising samadhi, perfect equilibrium of consciousness in which is utterly still and inactive for 3 hours. At dawn 3 hours of meditation, concentration and the withrawal of senses. And for 3 hours until noon, pranayanam (yoga breathing) and asana (yoga postural practise). 3 hours after noon are reserved for food, for conversation and interaction with other beings. At evening twilight, Rishis will perform certain rituals. And after night fell, he will enjoy another meal or have intimacy with his wife and sleep. Almost all of the ancient Rishis on Earth are householders and that is why Rishis will always understand and have compassion for us humans and our plights.

Natural potential for spiritual development becomes valuable only by careful cultivation, nothing happens by mere prayers or wearing amulets. It comes with serious and regular practise.  Therefore Rishis understood our problems and challenges in life and in their great magnanimity, they have created sadhanas (methods of practises) by which we can extricate ourselves from our limitations and make progress. They have created many types of sadhanas because there are so many types of people. I will not share on sadhana as this could be lenghty.

To wrap up my write-up on Rishis. Rishis are the puppeteers, and all other beings in the universe, mortals and immortals, are their puppets. The Rishis go around creating karmic debts for people to work off, to bind people down or help them progress. If you want to quit being a puppet, you must perform sadhana. And for those whom have always been curious of my fascination of Rishis, this is just a tip of the iceberg. Om Nama Shivaya

This phim is a phim niyom made of Thong Daeng, copper. It is not cleaned or unwashed, so it’s surfaced is practically untouched. The plastic casing has a crack, so it is not so perfect but it’s a small issue. Other than that, this piece is an immaculet collectible. I tried to take a few more close caption of the amulet’s surface because of the amulet’s casing, it’s difficult to take a sharp photo.

10 Chandeliers (Light) of Perfections

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the interior of Ubosot (Bot)  Wat DonYaiPeuan. Few years ago we advised our members and friends to offer dana of RM1,000 to have their names of family members and their birth details to be written on a ‘paen duang’ or birth chart. So here it is, all filled up underneath the main Buddha image of the Ubosot.

Can you all see the chandeliers on the ceilings? There are 10 of them, we call it the 10 Chandeliers (Light) of Buddha’s Perfection. What is it?

The Ten Perfections of Lord Buddha

  1. Generosity (Dana)
  2. Morality (Sila)
  3. Renunciation (Nekkhamma)
  4. Wisdom (Panna)
  5. Effort (Viriya)
  6. Patience (Khanti)
  7. Truthfulness (Sacca)
  8. Determination (Adhitthana)
  9. Loving-Kindness (Metta)
  10. Equanimity (Upekha)

These are the 10 qualities of Perfection that Gautama The Buddha has to achieve over countless lifetimes before emerging victoriously as The Buddha of Supreme Enlightenment. The Goddess of Earth said that the barami of cultivating such great perfections over many lifetimes by Boddhisattva Gautama was likened to the water she wrung out of her long hair which drowned Mara and his armies like a mighty ocean.

This is also the same set of disciplines or qualitites that Lord Buddha professed that Buddhist practises in our everyday lives.

3 of this chandeliers have been booked and paid for, left with 7 still waiting for sponsors. It is THB50,000 per chandelier. Ven. LP shared with me that such dana can help to brighten up one’s prospect in life and also increases one’s Metta in attracting good benefactors that could help in time of need.

Those whom are interest to sponsor the remaining chandeliers, kindly call me, Derrick at 012 692 1233 or Whatsapp ID Pu Reusi Porgae or Wechat ID Porgae or LINE ID Porgae.

Recently there have been requests, so I am uploading this rare collection. This entire mai tao/ mai kru is made of silver. Many ask if its Pothan Kron’s hand! I leave it to those whom are looking for Pothan’s mai tao to answer it himself. If this question pops up in your mind and you don’t have the absolute answer yourself, then it is not for you. And need not enquire from me also. This is for hardcore followers of Pothan’s collections because only they will know (if they trail Pothan’s collections over these few decades.) If any collector, keen, sincere and able to collect this collection but ask for our assurance on this piece AND AGAIN we thank you for your keen interest and sincerity but it is still not for you because it clearly shows you still have no confidence and knowledge of it’s history and to save you all your troubles and worries.

I hope to garner my website followers and collectors’ understanding on this issue because majority of our local collectors, collect base on eyes and ears only…sadly. Information are mostly from traders or websites, mostly many hands information and no verification of the so called ‘truth’. And that is why, I have always mentioned it on my site here, “Don’t believe all you read here. Go and fact find yourself!”

From socializing and observing the behavioral aspects of amulets collects, I have seen alot…nowadays I learn to laugh about it. There is this professional engineeer that I know, by profession he should be good in identifying soils and earth matters because he runs his own business. He loves to collect antique amulets from a wandering monk whom would hang his chivon robes on the same clothesline with ladies clothes and worst…lingeries. Despite my advise, he loved his Luang Phor and proud of his expensive collections!  Funny, right? But it happens and that is why I believed in Karmas. Their path could have been laid in lives before this and crossed again this life.

Those whom are interested to collect, kindly call me. Derrick at 012 692 1233 or Whatsapp ID Pu Reusi Porgae or Wechat ID Porgae or LINE ID Porgae.
