Wua Thanoo Nur Krang Phutsa

Luang Phor Phut also learnt Wiccha from Luang Phor Noi, Wat Srisathong and has learnt how to make effective Khreung Rang amulets. His most famous Khreung Rang amulets are his Wua Thanoo, Rahu and Thakrud which are popular among the collectors. On top of it, he has also consecrated many types of amulets such as Rian which had a few batches.

Wua Thanoo (literally arrow-bull) consecrated by Luang Phor Phut is made of Nur Krang Phutsa. Krang Phutsa is a type of wax extracted from the Chinese date tree and is deemed auspicious by Luang Phor Phut for the making of Wua Thanoo amulets. The branch from where the wax is extracted from has to be facing the east and an auspicious time will be chosen to extract the wax and to recite incantations on it before use. The instructions given by Luang Phor Phut before inviting the Wua Thanoo into the house are as such:

1) 16 joss-sticks must be lighted to invite the Devas from 16 directions to bless the Wua Thanoo image.
2) 1 joss-stick must be lighted to ask the house spirits to protect the house.

The Wua Thanoo which has been properly blessed will protect the house and the family from all forms of danger. Many experiences have been shared by devotees who have faith in Luang Phor Phut's Wua Thanoo and all of them are convinced that his Wua Thanoo is a very sacred object. Not many monks have the ability to make effective Wua Thanoo amulets due to the long conseceration process involved and also the difficulty in obtaining certain special materials.

On the 13th of January, B.E.2542, after many years of hard work without rest, Luang Phor Phut was totally fatigued and had to stop all his work so that he can be taken care of.
