This is a beautiful piece of Phra Somdej Wat Rakang, look at its body, substance and the old rak (resin) . Many have speculated if the Phra Somdej we featured here are really from Somdej Toh of Wat Rakang. May I say…that’s for me to know and for you to find out but for those whom collect merely by hearsay, i doubt you will know for sure.
The fallacy that genuine Phra Somdej Wat Rakang only belonged to elite Sian Phra group, isnt true. That idea was successfully ingrained into amulet enthusiast’s mind for a long time now. But we now live in an era where information is easily available and there are also many factions in the amulets circles. Many Phra Somdej seasoned collectors have come forward and publish their views and knowledge. We encourage collectors to collect base on knowledge, not just mere belief. Even with us for that matter. Recently this year, a public figure, popular entertainer and TV host collected a piece of Phra Somdej Wat Rakang for THB6,000,000 from a well known Sian Phra. Only to find out that it was a fake! It has become talk of the town now when it comes to amulet’s circle..
We too, learn from trial an error, but over the years we have gotten more confident. Especially when our collectors feedback to us on the ‘arsakchan’ or amazing results they have experienced. It is no wonder why Ven. LP Pae of Wat PhikhunThong, a fervent collector of Phra Somdej Wat Rakang. Amazed by the efficacy of it, Ven. fixed his determination to learn and create Phra Somdej just like those of Somdej Toh’s.
But just like anything in life, nothing is what it seems to be. Will wearing Phra Somdej Wat Rakang suffice to make your wishes come true? Yes and No.
