Luang Phor Ngern BE 2515 pims - A simple explanation to a complex subject


Luang Phor Ngern. Wat Bangklan is highly respected even to this day and in particular for his sacred power and amulets. Popular pims include his RoopLor Loy Ong the amulet for which he is best known but also other amulets such Pim Niyom, Pim Kidta, Pim Job Yai, Pim Job Lek, etc.

Luang Por Ngern was born in B.E.2351 during the reign of King Rama I at Bangklan Village, Pijit Province. His education began at Wat Tongpu (Wat Chanasongkram) in Bangkok where he was also ordained at the age of 20 years. He remained here to practice meditation.

During that time Somdej Pra Buddhachan Toh was still living and LP Ngern visited Wat Rakhang on many occasions to pay respect and also learn sacred sciences  

Thereafter he visited Wat Kongkaram in Pijit Province where he also spent considerable time tudong.
It was during this time that he was to visit  Wantago village where he planted three Bhoti tree saplings. Whilst in  payer  he promised to construct a temple on that spot should the saplings mature.

The rest is history, Wat Bangklan as it is was then known was built. The official name for this temple is Wat Hirunyaram. Luang Por Ngern passed away in B.E.2462, aged 111 years and having served the Buddhist faith for 90 years.


2515 Amulets

Its fairly common knowledge tthat LP Ngern amulets rate amongst some of the most popular ever to have been created. As a result many series of sacred pims have been created posthumously to satisfy this immense demand.

However without doubt the most successful series comprises those amulets blessed in the year BE 2515. In particular the Wat Bangklan batch with the ceremony to pour gold into the moulds being held at Wat Suthat in Bangkok before being blessed again at Wat Bangklan.

It was recorded that during this ceremony a particularly auspicious event occurred and that was a lunar eclipse making these amulets some of the most famous ever blessed.


Why the confusion

Although this account is by no means comnprehensive and no doubt contains erors, it will help to make this subject somewhat easier to understand

The BE 2515 pims can be very confusing often because vendors fail to provide sufficient information about the amulet.

Under normal circumstances this in itself would not be an issue, but the problem is that during that same year many other temples also created LP Ngern pims that naturally are referred to as BE 2515 amulets.

So its important that when you purchase a 2515 amulet that you understand from which temple it originated, because many other temples also held ceremonies at Wat Bangklan,

Dealers can and do obviously use this to their advantage. For example it would not be untruthful to say that a particular LP Ngern amulet was blessed  at Wat Bang Klan in BE 2515, but a knowledgeable dealer may be less than forthcoming about the true origin of the pim.

The following six temples all created LP Ngern amulets in BE 2515 pims and although not quite as valuable as the original LP Ngern Bangklan pims they are all worth collecting and are all considered equally as powerful.  Prices for all of these pims increase year on year and they all represent a good investment.

Interestingly all of the above pims were blessed together at the same ceremony at Wat Bang Klan as the Wat Bangklan pims so you will understand why they are all considered equally as sacred, and why I would recommend this pim from any of the above temples.

I think it is also common knowledge that the BE 2515 pim is heavily faked so its always worth qualifying your purchase with an independent certificate where possible.

One other important point of note is that many of the above temples also created more than one single design of  the  LP Ngern pim.

A good example would be Wat Tainam
