Phra Pidta Mahalap, Luang Pu Toh, Wat Pradoochimplee, Bangkok, B.E.2522
In the year B.E.2522, Than Phrakru Viroj Kittikhun arranged to create a batch of Phra Pidta amulets which consists of 2 styles. They were namely "Phra Pidta Lai Kanok Khu" and "Phra Pidta Lang Yant Nak Tha Nak", both of which were made of sacred powder. Luang Pu Toh consecrated this batch of Phra Pidta amulets along with Phra Chaiwat Pawared and Phra Sangkachai Loy Ong Nur Nawaloha.
All the amulets from this batch were arranged neatly in a big container during the consecration ceremony which lasted 1 day. There was a fire caused by the Thian Chai (auspicious candle) which burned the front of the main altar table during the ceremony. Phrakru Viroj Kittikhun mentioned that the sacred chanting thread (Sai Sin) which was used to tie the main Buddha image on the altar to the amulets container was miraculously unburnt even though it was in the way of the fire. When the fire started spreading towards the container which contained the Phra Pidta, Phra Chaiwat and Phra Sangkachai amulets, Luang Pu Toh seemed to chant something which caused the fire to miraculously extinguish by itself when it touched the container. The attending devotees who witnessed this miraculous event, both young and old, were absolutely amazed and agreed with one another that this batch of amulets was definitely of an extremely powerful nature. When the amulets were distributed to the public, many devotees who wore this batch of amulets shared with one another of their countless miraculous experiences, especially stories about wealth and fortune which seemed to be bestowed on them miraculously (Chok Lap). Many also shared their experiences on how they narrowly escaped dangerous and life-threatening situation (Kleaw Klaad) and also on how they seem to be much more respected by others (Metta Mahaniyom).
Phra Pidta Kanok Khang, Nur Phong Bailan, 2 Thakrud inserted, made less than 4,000 pieces
Phra Pidta Lai Kanok Khu, or also known as Kanok Khang, was made in a special form that was generally different from the earlier batches of Luang Pu Toh's Pidta amulets. Both sides of the Phra Pidta image has a "Kanok", which is a classical Thai design and which is how the name came about. The approximate measurement is 2.7cm width by 2.1cm height and thickness 0.7cm (of which the thickness can vary from pieces to pieces). The quantities made are as follows:
1. Nur Phong Kesorn, no thakrud inserted, 1,500 pieces
2. Nur Phong Bailan, no thakrud or 2 thakrud inserted total 10,000 pieces (2 thakrud inserted less than 4,000 pieces)
3. Nur Phong Kesorn, Phim Kammakan (committee mould), 1 gold thakrud and 1 silver thakrud inserted, 5 pieces
4. Nur Phong Bailan, 1 gold thakrud and 1 silver thakrud inserted, 100 pieces
5. Nur Phong Bailan, Phim Kammakan Piset (special committee mould), 2 gold thakrud inserted, 40 pieces
Phra Pidta Lang Yant Nak Tha Nak, Nur Phong Bailan, 2 Thakrud inserted, made less than 7,740 pieces
Phra Pidta Phim Lang Yant Nak Tha Nak (back with Yant Nak Tha Nak), all pieces were inserted with 2 thakrud. The quantities made are as follows:
1. Nur Phong Kesorn, 2,750 pieces
2. Nur Phong Bailan, 7,740 pieces
3. Nur Phong Bailan, Phim Kammakan (committee mould), 1 gold thakrud and 1 silver thakrud inserted, less than 100 pieces
4. Nur Phong Bailan, Phim Kammakan Piset (special committee mould), 2 gold thakrud, less than 10 pieces
Due to the positive experiences recounted by the devotees, Phra Pidta amulets from this batch are always sought after by both devotees and collectors. The amulets were already unavailable in the temple after distribution and the imitations found today look almost identical to the genuine pieces.
