Amulets of LP Tim
* Phra Khun Paen Guman Plaai* is one of the most famous amulets created by Luang Phor Tim of Wat Lahanarai. His amulets are very popular and expensive, but for good reason. A popular account has been well publicized around the internet. This is an updated and somewhat more accurate version. Phra Khun Paen Pong Plaai Guman of LP Tim Isarigo, a senior monk of Wat Lahanrai, Rayong province, is respected as one of the most sacred amulets consecrated in modern times. A genuine Phra Khun Paen Guman Plaai amulet is probably the hardest to find, and fakes abound everywhere. This amulet is well proven in Metta Mahaniyon, Metta Mahasaneh, business success etc. The actual methods used to create this amulet follow the ancient traditional ways. Only a few guru monks are known this century to be able to create such an amulet, namely Luang Phoo Tim himself, and Luang Phor Tae of Wat Sahm Ngam. The most popular series "the first block") containing both Pim Yai and Pim Lek, some with sacred takruts and others without. It is generally believed that LP Tim had asked a disciple to make the amulets for him and on a daily basis he would bring newly made amulets to the temple and then LP Tim would gradually recite the sacred spell for each and every amulet. Indeed it was recorded that 30-40 of the Pim Yai amulets and around 100-200 of the Pim Lek amulets were brought to him daily. The disciple responsible for making the amulets was known to have stated that only a single mould was created for both the Pim Lek and The Pim Yai amulets. LP Tim did not make further moulds and as such it's highly likely that only a single series of these amulets were ever created. Many dealers may claim to possess amulets that have originated from different series, but be warned you are most likely being deceived. One of the reasons that such a low quantity of these amulets were produced was no doubt due to the difficulty and danger associated in production. As stated previously it was well known amongst experts of the black magic sciences that only a few monks possessed the ancient knowledge required to produce such an amulet. Mr. Lap Choicharoen If lesser persons attempted such a process it is highly likely that they would themselves become possessed with demonic spirits or harmed in some way. Luang Phor Tae of Wat Sam Nagm was the only other living monk who possessed the knowledge.
How Khun Phen Plai Kuman are made?
Mr. Lap Choicharoen, a close disciple of LP Tim had said that he was instructed to locate the corpse of a pregnant woman who had passed the cremation ceremony on a Tuesday. Furthermore he was to bring the burnt head bone of the dead foetus to LP Tim. This was required in order to create the sacred powders used in the preparation of the Phra Khun Paen Pong Plaai Guman amulets Luang Phoo Tim chanted a special black magic spell or Katha for one week in order to control the soul and also prevent the spirit departing from the Plaai Guman. Once completed, his disciple was instructed to pound and grind the material into a fine powder, which he commenced to do. It was not long however that he became somewhat disturbed by sparks emanating from the mortar. He had to burn incense and ask for forgiveness before this phenomena abated. Luang Phoo Tim took the Plaai Guman powder and mixed it with a number of other sacred powders including, Itijeaepattamung powder, Jindahmanee powder, Prawai and 108 different herbs and sedges. The mixture was chanted for days on end before being pressed into the moulds.
