Yant/Katha Hua Jai Ven. LP Pae Wat PhiKunThong

 

This is a common yant found in most of Ven.’s collections. This yant is a result of much learning with many Teachers especially in his years of studies in Wat Suthat.

It says,

Buddho Budhadhak Buddhak Laphang Chew Ha Suwannang Mudhu Chitthang Piyang Ma Mak .

One can chant as often as one needs with good mindfulness. If offers protection and blessings in many ways.

Katha Puja Phra Somdej

There has been much request for a katha that is suitable for Phra Somdej enthusiasts. Here is a good katha called Katha Puja Phra Somdej. Suitable for any Phra Somdej that resembles that of Ven. Somdej Toh’s work of art. Hardly heared of people teaching this now. The photo above is an other phim Phra Somdej Wat Khun In called, Phim Phrakthan Mai Mi PhaThip.

Start by recalling Ven. Somdej Toh to mind, and the Teacher whom consrecated your Phra Somdej other than Ven. Somdej Toh. Recite Namo Tassa… followed by:

Tosentowaradhammena Tosatthaneasiwaray Tosangagasijantunang Tosachitthangnamamihang (Click here to listen)

What should you do before chanting parittas or khatas?

There has been many enquiries with regards to what should one do before chanting. I believe different Teachers may have their own practise, therefore one shouldn’t be too rigid with such customs.

In my personal opinion, it should be ideal that before we start every chanting sessions, one should always clean ourselves first. Like a Teacher that I have much admirations to Archan PraChuop of Pattalung, he always make it a practise to bathe himself before beginning any chantings. If we are in front of our Buddha’s altar, always lit a pair of candles and incense smoke. Generally 3 sticks of incense sticks, representing the Triple Gems or if ones parent have passed away, 5 sticks, representing Triple Gems, father and mother. Do ensure that candles and incense sticks remain lit throughout the session.

One should make an effort to calm his mind and regain mindfullness. Samadhi for a short while then recall Triple Gems to mind. Follow with our parent and Teachers ( which we call Krus ). Then begin your chantings.

My Teachers

It is important that we have our Teachers at heart. In my opinion, a Teacher can help to anchor our mindfullness and establish our faith. In this world of ours…chaotic it may seems at times, no matter how strong we are or how successful we are. When we reach deep into ourselves in our solitary, we will realise how small we can be. We must realise at times there’s something bigger than ourselves.

One of my most revered Teachers are my Master Rershi(s). I was introduce to adopt Rershi as my Teacher many years ago and I have never stop since.

It can be quite a miracle for those whom revers them faithfully.

One of the great Rershi(s) I have came across is Pothan Sompann Rershi of Tham Nai Dao of Nakorn. Don’t underestimate such a plain statue! This Teacher have many a times grant my and others wishes. He reside in a cave called Tham Nai Dao in Nakorn. I have once brought a friend to this cave. He is very sensitive to unusual paranormal energies, he couldn’t even get near Pothan Sompann’s altar until I asked of his permission to bring a friend to revere him.

Master Rershi(s) are Teachers, Gautama the Buddha’s Teachers are Rershi(s) too. One of the very first amulets found, Phra Rod, was made by Rershi Narod. It may sound ridiculous but some Rershi(s) aged over a thousand years of age!

Maybe at a later postings, I will share with our dear readers on the offering requisites and kathas with regards to revering Master Rershi(s).

Somdej PhraBuddhacharn Toh’s Katha(s)

We thank you all whom have trusted us and our recommendations on Phra Somdej Wat Khun In. According to the feedbacks from some of our members and colletors from abroad, these batch especially the phim niyoms have brought much good factors or influences to sincere bearers. As a result, we have many enquiries for kathas from or of Somdej Toh. Most knew of PhraKatha Jinnabanchon, I have featured before, but most take time to master it. Here we would like to share with you all kathas of and from Somdej Toh. ( It will all be archived in About Kathas section later.)

Takrut MahaRakngap MahaChakapat

Earlier we were talking about ‘Pong Jindamanee’ prepared by Somdej Phra Panarat of Wat Pah Kaew for King Naresuan. Now we will share with you another  great gift by Somdej Phra Panarat to King Naresuan, the ultimate takrut and the King of all takruts, Takrut MahaRakngap MahaChakapat. King Naresuan wore his at all times and especially during warfares. He regconised its effectiveness and requested Somdej Phra Panarat to make one for all his platoon leaders to enhance their skills and lead them to victories.

‘MahaRakngap’ means power to stop or obstruct or defeat. Whereas ‘MahaChakapat’ means the ultimate King. Therefore the main purpose of Takrut MahaRakngap MahaChakapat is to stop or defeat any factors that may affect the bearer or owner negatively. Example; If one carries it, he will be safe wherever he goes or if he has to meet his enemies or competition, he will win over them or win them. If is is kept in the premise, it will safeguard the premise against robberry, buglary and other disturbances to the premise or occupants.
Because it is also MahaChakapat, it is endowed with great energy of Mahalap, MahaMetta, MahaSanae, MahaNiyom, Pokasap, Klaewkard and others. There was an ancient saying that says the value of Takrut MahaRakngap MahaChakapat is more valueable than a gift of diamond from heaven.

However it is hard to find a skillful Teacher who can make this takrut. Any unqualified practisioner whom attempts to write this takrut will lose their mind. Therefore since Ayuddhaya time till now, very few was heard of mastering this takrut. The grand Teacher of this takrut is non other than Ven. LP Boon Thiam, then Ven. LP Salikho but he has passed away last year. Ven.  LP Salikho is very effective too, that is why his Takrut MahaRakngap at present is easily above RM2,000. Even when you can afford higher few are willing to part with such a hard to come by collection!

 

 

Since last year, we were requesting Archan Vicharn of Wat PotthiPakkai in Ayuddhaya to make for us. And there has been much request from our members since but this Takrut is hard to make therefore just writing one piece take much time. An average Takrut MahaRakngap MahaChakapat is about 1feet (12 inches) in lenght and 0.75 inches in diameter. It weighs approximately 1kg. It is decorated with gold leaves when preparing for poksek ceremony.

The Teacher whom makes this takrut must be a person of great patience because the yants on this takrut must be ‘rig nam’ or made potent by means of incantations before he began inscribbing them. We will show you part of the yants below:

It isn’t like an average takrut where the yants or kom writing are few or simple. After writing is completed, it will be rolled and decorated with gold leaves. Then it has to be poksek again. That is the reason why Archan Vicharn seldom make much, only when requested.

There were many enquiries about why is the takrut so long. Those days when people use to built their own homes, this Takrut MahaRakngap MahaChakapat is tied to their main pillar when they construct their home. It is common to use this takrut to protect the home and occupants and at the same time vibrates harmonious and prosperity vibes thoughout their homes.

It is suitable for homes and business premises because it provides;

  • protection
  • prosperity
  • harmony
  • avoiding negative influences or chi
  • black magic
  • winning over business competition
  • many more…

However, it would be ideal if the owner or bearer chant its katha for better energy. It will be ideal if we can chant them according to the power of the day. Eg Monday, the power is 15x, then we chant the katha 15 times and in a week we would have achieved 108 times.

The real Dok Mai Thong

You may have heard much about takrut Dok Mai Thong but few have really seen the real thing. The dried flower shown above is Dok Mai Thong. It is rare and difficult to plant. Most places are cautious about planting them because when the flower blooms it creates a sensual aura of sexual intimacy.

This Dok Mai has been blessed by Ven. LP Sanie Chan of Wat Huay Chod. Of course naturally it is endowed with energy Metta and Sanae but with Ven. LP’s blessing, it works even better.

For those whom favors, Metta Oil but are worried that some irresponsible traders may add a little of Nam man Prai (coprse’s oil) to spice it up for greater strenght but may bring grave results subsequently.

You can add your own favourite fragrant oil (natural without alcohol) into a glass bottle with this flower in it. If the bottle is exposed to air, not only will it smells wonderful but it carries positive energy of Metta and Sanae. Or you may keep it at home but dab a little of this oil on the tip of your nose and run it up to your forehead, 3 times before you go out to work or meet someone.

 

You may chant:

U ba sam ba, ba so u cha, metta khunang arahang metta. 9 times

It is 100% natural and you don’t have to worry of any side effects! Some people finds Metta oil more effective because we naturally have oil in our body and if we just put a dab on to us, it covers our entire body.

Suitable for :

  • If you are still single and look forward to find a suitable partner.
  • Businesses that caters for romantic moods of couples may want to air up their premise with sensual mood.
  • Lovely couples whom are looking to spice up their love-life.
  • People whom lacked Metta.
  • Sales professional whom meets people all the time. You may chant this additional katha called;

Katha Kha Khai Dee ( Prosperous business/selling )

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammasambuddhassa  x3

Puthak Pahung Caknanang Ehi Jit Thang Ehi Manuksanang Ehi Laphang Ehi Metta Chomputipae Manuksanang Etiyo Burikso Jit Thang Panthang Ehi.

Phra Phrom, The Great Brahma

 

Since the period of more than 5,000 years ago, the disciples of Brahman had paid homage to Phra Phrom as one of their highly esteemed God in their religion. The Brahman religion was known to be one of the religion that had the longest history. This religion was mainly symbolised by 3 major God i.e. God Brahma, God Vishnu and God Shiva, which also form the main body of the religion. The originality of this Trinity was that the Brahman religion believed that these 3 Gods combined their powers to create this Buddhist world (the Earth is part of it).
1. BRAHMA: Creator of the world and all things.
2. VISHNU: Preserver of all things.
3. SHIVA: Destroyer that makes all things exist and perish according to natural cycles.

In Buddhist Literature, Brahma was also described as the great Brahma. During such time, though, Buddhism was prevalent, the prac¬tices of Brahman religion were also accepted by Buddhism, and as a result both were able to exist in harmony.
The feature of Great Brahma was a God with 4 faces and 4 pair of hands. Many ignorant people knew him as the 4-face Buddha. In fact in the record of Buddhist literature, he belongs to the class of God and not Buddha, therefore it will be more proper to call him as 4 face God or the Great Brahma.
The significance of the 4 faces of the Great Brahma was to offer help to all cry from all directions, to attend to any slightest request for help, to see to it that everything was just and fair, to release all mood and gloom of the human behaviour as wished.

 
It was also believed that there were specific significant in the religious items held by the hands and the posture. Each religious item significance was interpreted as follow:-

  1. Book: Represents knowledge
  2. Bead: Represents Control Karma
  3. Spear Stick: Represents will power
  4. Flower Vase: Represents Blessing water (All Requests are fulfilled) 
  5. Conch Shell: Represents offer of wealth
  6. Mystic position of hand placed on chest: Represents offering compassion
  7. Flying wheel: Represents clearing of disaster and calamities, suppress evil, release all gloominess and worries; Cakka 
  8. Cinta Mani: Represents Almighty power of Buddha.

As for the legends about Brahma there are more than the total number of legends of his partners. Among them, some are glorifying while some are destructive libels that make everyone condemnes, and some are delibrate exaggerated mystery.
One of the exaggerated mystery known of as commonly used by the tourist guides who tried to use it as propaganda and even a movie, “Demons Rearing” shown here before, also has the same portray in the script.
It said that if one hope to have the wishes fulfilled, then one should get a female strip-tease dancer in front of God Brahma as offer. This was not only misleading, also it was sinful, offensive and disrespect to God Brahma. It is hope that all merciful and ever responsive Great Brahma will extend to these people, his generous pardon and forgiveness.
In many places in Asia, many people like to pay homage to Brahma and in recent years, because of the prosperous developments of commerce and industry in Hongkong and Singapore, and also due to the Thai Buddhism religious culture being widespread, many people who have been to Thailand have brought back Buddhist image for worship and Brahma is one of those favourite being worshipped. Other than Hong Kong and Singapore, Brahma can be seem in many places in Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei etc. Now, Brahma is no longer restricted to be worshipped in Indian temples only.
The power of Brahma: Give help to important duty, preservation of land and properties, rescue when life is in danger, prosper industry.
Method of worship for request: Have the intention written on paper and place it under the image, as most suitable. Any kind of languages is acceptable.
