Phra Ajahn Nong, the former abbot of Wat Saikhao created the very first Luang Phor Thuiad amulets at Wat Saikhao in BE 2514.

Ajahn Nong was the close disciple of Phra Ajahn Tim from Wat Chang Hai, also the first monk to create such amulets both in Thailand and at that temple in BE 2497. These amulets are nowadays so expensive that they are well beyond the pocket of the average collector, mosxt selling for excess of 1 million Baht.

Although Ajahn Nong was closely involved in the creation of these very first amulets he had never created any by himself until BE 2514. He did not want to compete with his predecessor, LP Tim As such you will understand the significance of this particular batch.

After Phra Ajahn Tim had passed away it was never really his intention to create such amulets until it was that that Phra Acharn Tim told him in his dreams to create a new series of amulets.

“If you don’t, then who will?” they were the last words that LP Tim spoke to Ajahn Nong before he woke. It was then that he decided to create this very first batch in BE 2514.

The sacred ceremony to consecrate the amulets was organized from 07.00pm, January 2, B.E.2514 to 07.20 am, January 3, B.E.2514, at Wat Saikhao. Many sacred monks participated. Phra Acharn Moon of Wat Khaodang, had told all the monks to recite a special sacred spell called “Karmvaja”

  Luang Phor Lamoon of Wat Sadet, Patumthani Province
  Phra Pairojnaratikun of Wat Bangnara, Naratiwas Province
  Luang Phor Jing of Wat Kokyam, Puttalung Province
  Phra Ajahn Rod of Wat Pradupattanaram, Nakornsridharmarach Province
  Phra Ajahn Kong of Wat Bansuan, Puttalung Province
  Phra Ajahn Num of Wat Donsala, Puttalung Province
  Phra Ajahn Mun of Wat Khaodang-ok, Puttalung Province
  Phra Pisarndharmarungsi of Wat Kuhasawan, Puttalung Province
  Phra Ajahn Nong of Wat Saikhao

Today these amulets are priced from a few thousand baht to many tens of thousands of Baht. They have become increasingly rarer to find.

All money that was gained from the original sale was used to support the construction of a giant sacred Buddha Image, situated on top of Sunkalakiri Mountain (or Saikhao Mountain). The stone laying ceremony was graciously presided over by HRH the Princess Mother Srinakarindra.

The giant Buddha Image was designed in a special style called Yamaka Patiharn (Pim of Miracle) , the design was also used to create some amulets in the BE 2514 series.

A number of different pims were created further divided according to the size, Pim Yai (big), Pim Klang (middle) and Pim Lek (small).

A further two pims were included in the box set namely Rian Medtang and Prapim Samliamlek amulets. These were not created by Wat Saikhao, but by Wat Chang Hai in BE 2508. They were included by Phra Ajahn Nong, who wanted to give the best amulets to worshippers.

Note Takrut Narai Plangroop embedded in base. (Hand Moulded not mechanical)

All pims created were embedded with a sacred takrut known as Narai Plangroop Takrut, (believed to protect the worshipper from all dangers, enemies and black magic power) those which were hand molded as opposed to those which were mechanically molded are the most valuable.
