Phra Khreung Roon Wat Maiamataros, Luang Pu Toh, Wat Pradoochimplee, Bangkok, B.E.2518



In the year B.E.2517, Wat Pradoochimplee hired the technicians who produced the amulets for Wat Mai Amataros, Bangkhunprom to do the production for 4 moulds of powdered amulets. They were namely:


1. Phra Pidta Roon Metta Mahasaneh
- Nur Phong Kesorn 33,000 pieces
- Nur Phong Bailan 3,000 pieces

2. Phra Somdej Prok Po Phim Ok Rong
- Nur Phong Kesorn 33,000 pieces

3. Phra Somdej Phim Sam Liam Kha Toh
- Nur Phong Kesron 3,000 pieces
- Nur Phong Bailan 3,000 pieces

4. Phra Phong Phim Chan Loy (Pim Klom – round shaped)
- Nur Phong Kesorn Phim Raek less than 5,000 pieces
- Nur Phong Kesorn Phim Song 30,000 pieces

These 4 powdered amulets were produced in the year B.E. 2517 and were brought to LP Toh to bless for 1 full year before distribution. During that period, no one had the knowledge of powder mixing and pressing amulets at Wat Pradoochimplee. Luang Pu Toh was very old so he was not involved in the production but he assigned this task to Phrakru Viroj Kittikhun, who contacted the technicians and also aranged for the amulets distribution.

The powder formula of Wat Mai Amataros was already famous for good powder mixture in the amulet market. The mixture consists of Tang Ew oil, shell cement, white cement water, soft coconut sugar and various powder of dried plant stems. After Phrakru Viroj Kittikhun learned the formula of producing such powder amulets, he started producing powdered amulet for Wat Pradoochimplee. Starting from Phra Somdej Roon Yeuan India B.E.2519 (Visit to India Batch), he subsequently produced many more Phims of Phra Pidta amulets by using powder formula of Wat Mai Amataros. When he wanted to produce Phra Nur Phong Bailan (burnt palm leaves), he would use old rotten palm leaves and coconut shells which were burnt and ground into powder mixed with dried stamens powder. This mixture will make the content of amulets soft but glossy in appearance.

There are Thai words which were embossed at the back of all the amulets in this batch - “Luang Pu Toh Wat Pradoochimplee”


Phra Pidta Nur Phong Roon Metta Mahasaneh


Phra Pidta Metta Mahasaneh, Nur Phong Kesorn, 33,000 pieces, B.E.2518

This Phra Pidta was the 1st batch of Phra Pidta produced under the name of Wat Pradoochimplee. Wat Mai Amataros was invited to mix the powder and press the amulets.

Phra Somdej Prok Po Phim Ok Rong


Phra Somdej Prok Po Phim Ok Rong, Nur Phong Kesorn, 33,000 pieces, B.E.2518

This batch of Phra Somdej was not very popular as they were similar to those that were produced at Wat Mai Amataros B.E.2517. Because of this, the temple kept this batch of amulets with Luang Pu Toh and he blessed this batch of Phra Somdej amulets continuously until he passed away in B.E.2524. He blessed this batch of Phra Somdej for a total of 5 years. This batch of Phra Somdej is also sometimes referred to as "Phra Somdej Roon Ha Trimas" (chanted for 5 rain-retreats).


Phra Somdej Phim Sam Liam Kha Toh


Phra Somdej Phim Sam Liam, Nur Phong Bailan, 3,000 pieces, B.E.2518

This batch of Phra Somdej Phim Sam Liam was produced in both Nur Phong Kesorn and Nur Phong Bailan. In B.E.2519, the temple produced another batch of Phra Somdej Phim Sam Liam using the same mould and pressed this batch of amulet for another 5,000 pieces in Nur Phong Kesorn but with a thakrud inserted at the base.


Phra Somdej Phim Chan Loy


Phra Somdej Chan Loy Phim Song, Nur Phong Kesorn, 30,000 pieces, B.E.2518

The measurement of this Phra Somdej Phim Chan Roy is 1.8 cm. in diameter. There were 2 moulds used to produce this batch of Phra Somdej which resulted in 2 different results. Phim Raek (1st mould) has the distinct feature where the rim of the Phra Somdej amulet is curved and convex in appearance. Phim Song (2nd mould) is different from Phim Raek at the rim, where it is flat and looks sharper than Phim Raek.
