A very famous pim, easily identified and much sought after by collectors.

Luang Phor Aant (or Luang Por Un), the former abbot of Wat Prayatikaram, Ayudhaya Province, was without doubt the most distinguished devotee of Luang Phor Glaan, the sacred abbot of the temple, famous for his sacred sciences and amulets.




Whilst Luang Por Glaan was still alive, he would always appoint Luang Phor Aant to oversee the production of the amulets and after the amulets, which were finally blessed by Luang Phor Glaan himself.

After Luang Por Glaan had passed away, Luang Por Aant himself commanded much respect from the people as the natural successor to LP Glaan.

He created many amulets, having learnt the art from LP Glaan. Probably his most famous of all was his Phra Khun Paen Klurb, the amulet featured here. It is said that many high ranking officials sought his amulets due to the unique power to attract women.

One account given by a senior military official tells how he hung the amulet for the very first time, and was immediately followed by a beautiful girl to his hotel room

LP Aant made this Khun Paen by mixing the ground broken antique Khun Paen amulets of Wat YaiChaimongkol. One of the reasons that this amulet is so popular as it is as efficacious as the original antique one.   Wat Yai Chai Mongkol was one of the most famous and prosperous temples during Ayudhaya dynasty, but was burnt and destroyed by Burmese soldiers around B.E.2310.

There were several Pims (styles) of Phra khunpan amulets that Luang Por Aant obtained from Wat Yai Chai Mongkol:

1.Pim Kan On, amulets with an image of a bowed-arm Buddha to the front.

2.Pim Ha Lium Oke Yai, amulets with an image of a wide-breasted Buddha to the front with a frame shaped as a pentagon.

3.Pim Pra Somdej, amulets with an image of Lord Buddha sitting on a high base.

4.Pim Pra Nang Phaya, amulets in the style of Pra Nang Phaya, the design of which originated some 1,000 years ago.

Other sacred materials from many other temples were also incorporated into the sacred mix, including powders from Wat Takrai, Wat Bangnomko, wat Kooslot etc.
 
After all amulets were taken from the moulds they were blessed at a number of sacred ceremonies by the three sacred monks:

1. Three-month sacred-spell ceremony by Luang Por Aant himself

2. Three-day –three- night sacred-spell ceremony by Luang Por Jong of Wat Natangnok.

3.  Three-day –three- night sacred-spell ceremony by Luang Poo Si of Wat Sakae.

After the blessing ceremonies were completed, half of the amulets were placed in Jedis at Wat Phra Yatigaram, Ayuthaya, and Wat Rajburana(Wat Lieb), Bangkok. The other half were distributed to devotees who donated to help restore the two temples. He was actually requested to make these amulets by Luang Phor Chalerm, later to be appointed abbot of Wat Yaitikaram and Luang phor Niyom, Wat Rajburana.


Apart from this  series of Pra Khun Pan Klurb amulets, Luang Por Aant also created many other series of sacred amulets

LP Aant passed away in B.E.2512 at the age of 80.
