This is to bring to your attention to the some of you that one of Ven. LP Seua’s lay disciple has brought these speculated batch of Phra Somdejs to be certified of its authenticity . I agree that they are good genuine amulets based on our experiences. Ven. Somdej Toh had more than 70 phims of Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang but the experts only accept a few as mainstream collections. There are still many unseen phims which are real genuine ones. However if we are gonna listen to ONLY the big boys whom controls the markets with their so called Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang, a very obvious conflict of interest as to what is acceptable or not acceptable. Then by all means, nothing wrong just matters of preference. But we choose to follow what we learn and study, we collect with our eyes, analytical mind, our research from our studies, not just hearsay.
However if you were to ask me how valid are these certificates these days, I honestly said not very. Because if they are means banks or pawn shops or goldsmith shops can take them as guarantee for a loan…afterall it is Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang. If you and I are to agree that this is not going to happen then you and I should also know that such so called “Certificate of Authenticity” are only played among some groups . However to those of you , if even such claims matters then it is good news for you. For us in SaengThai, we believe in seeing the real thing not the paper. Afterall nowadays many syndicates are targeting Non-Thais.
