Pra Khun Paen B.E.2506 (Reun Piti Sadet klap)
Possibly one of the greatest Khun Paen amulets ever
In B.E.2506 a number of sacred ceremonies were arranged to sacralise around 84,000 amulets created by Luang Poo Supha Guntasilo, Ajahn Chum Chaikiri, and Ajahn Uthai Dujsrivut.
The sacred amulets included Pra khun Paen (later called “Pra khun Paen B.E.2506 Reun Piti Sadetklap”), Pra Rod, Luk Pra Kum (created according to LP Kong’s sacred science), Pah Yant , Pah Yant Singha, sacred charming oil, etc.

Luang Phor Supha
Luang Poo Supha Guntasilo, aged 69 years, served the Buddhist faith for 49 years, working hard to help develop Buddhism in the Thai Kingdom. He enjoyed travelling all over the country and participated in the construction of over 33 temples.
Despite many offers he never accepted the position of Abbot, preferring to remain away from the limelight and concentrate on his work, often with long periods of absence and solitary existence practicing high level meditation in the jungles of Thailand.
He is also known to have travelled abroad to India, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Burma, etc, learning ancient sacred sciences and collecting some of the most sacred ores and plants known to man.

He found a small population of 600, all of whom were unable to speak the Thai language. He remained there for a considerable time teaching the locals Thai language and Dharma, departing a highly respected monk.

Ajahn Chum immediately agreed and over a considerable period they gathered together all the materials that would be required to create these amulets which included:
