Phae, Luang Phor Lard, Wat Nong Krabok, Rayong
Luang Phor Lard, Wat Nong Krabok, Rayong, was a disciple of both Luang Phor Wong, Wat Bahn Khai and Luang Phor Um, Wat Nong Krabok, both of whom were considered the top guru monks of Rayong province in the province's history.
Phae amulets are a very special and difficult type of Khreung Rang amulets to create. The conditions for a piece of suitable horn material usually involves a buffalo that has to be naturally struck dead by lightning which is not a very common occurence and a few other stringent criterias. The reason as to why buffalo horn is needed is because the buffalo is known to be a very tough and strong animal which is almost impervious to physical harm (Khong Krapan Chatri). In Thailand, the goat is known to be a very attractive animal in the animal kingdom within its own species because the male goat will always be accompanied by many female goats when relatively compared to other animals. The female goats will very often fight among themselves for the attention of the male goat and hence the belief that the goat has extremely great charisma and opposite sex attraction (Metta Mahaniyom / Metta Mahasaneh). Hence, it is very commonly believed that people who are involved in occupations involving sales will be the ones greatly benefitting from Phae amulets.
Luang Phor Um, one of the master of Luang Phor Lard, was famous and is the undisputed No.1 for his Phae amulets, which have proven to be so effective that it is quickly snapped up if it is a genuine piece. However, due to the high price (usually amounting to hundreds of thousands of baht), there are more imitation pieces available than the genuine ones. Luang Phor Lard who was a disciple of Luang Phor Um mastered all the skills and incantations required directly from Luang Phor Um to consecrate effective Phae amulets. After Luang Phor Am passed away, Luang Phor Lard was appointed the abbot of Wat Nong Krabok and remained in his appointment from B.E.2495 until he passed away in B.E.2531. Luang Phor Lard was the only disciple to inherit the instructions manual to create effective Phae amulets from Luang Phor Um. Luang Phor Lard was also one of the teachers of Luang Pu Sinn, Wat Lahanyai, Rayong.
The very early batches of Phae amulets are extremely popular because of the similarities to Luang Phor Um pieces and it is very common that they are passed off as Luang Phor Um's. The piece shown above is an early batch piece and measures only 2cm tall by 2cm wide. There are also many imitations of Luang Phor Lard's early batch Phae amulets.
