LUANG PHOR DAENG PIM GANMALI - 1st Gen Black Somdej (Rare)

It is not often that you will see any top class Luang Phor Daeng amulets on the internet so its a great pleasure to show this first generation amulet, known as Pim Ganmali. This is the black variant which is rare in itself but in addition very much rarer in comparison to the white variant of the same pim. 

In fact LP Daeng blessed 4 different types of black pim, namely; Neua Dam, Neua Dam Pong Tabai, Pim Ganmali and Pim Disco. Pim ganmali is one of many pims that are considered amongst the very best and often win at competition.

Note how the composition differs from the standard pims with many different inclusions, but most importantly high concentrations of rae and ganmali stalks giving the pim its very characterstic appearnace. Pim disco on the other hand only contains rae and other minerals making it almost metallic in appaearnce and hence its common name Disco, referring to the reflective balls often seen hanging from the ceiling in dance halls.

All pim ganmali have this same appearance and compositioon and a very easy amulet to authenticate.

Although amulets such as this are listed as BE 2513 first generation, they were in fact blessed as early as BE 2509 and can almost be considered the prototype amulets to the mass produced version that were officially released in BE 2513.




Prapong Yantvilas amulets are without question the most famous series of amulets created by this great monk. In fact the sanctification of these pims took almost three years to complete.

Amulets consecrated by Luang Phor Daeng are known to have help save many lives from road accidents. It is reported that no victims of road deaths have ever been found to have been wearing LP Daeng's amulets

Another well reported event was the incident of a parachutist who jumped from a plane, but his chutes failed to deploy. Inexplicably the strong prevailing wind blew him into safely  into a swamp and survived. he wearing the LP Daeng Somdej amulet.

Petchburi province in Thailand was known to be violent, with many conflicts settled with guns. It was said the LP Daeng Somdej amulet acted as an invisible force or bullet proof jacket with bullets being unable to penetrate human flesh. Miraculous incidents were widely reported and prices rose rapidly. 

One of the most accurate accounts of these pims was written in the Apiniharn Magazine published in February BE 2517, the very month after the death of Luang Phor Daeng who passed away on the 16th January BE 2517.

1. Pra Pong Yanvilas amulets were created by the three individuials, Luang Phor Boonsong, current abbot of Wat Khaobandai-it, Mr. Jerm Promprasit and Lt Prasong Jermporn.

2. The sacred powders to create these pims were collected during the period B.E.2489- B.E 2509.

3. Production of the pims commenced in BE 2509 and completed in BE 2511. This is one of the reasons that you will see some magazines list these amulets as BE 2509 or BE 2511 as it is known a number of pims were distributed in both these years to committee members of the temple.

4. The amulets were sanctified at more than 250 sacred ceremonies held at a  similar number of temples.

5. Luang Phor Daneg continued to bless these amulets for a further 2 years during the period BE 2511 to BE 2513.

6. Although the amulets are commonly refrerred to as BE 2513, they were not actually released to the public until October BE 2514, and as such it would be quite accurate to describe them as first batch BE 2514.  The following document held at Wat Khao Bandai-it is a letter from the Abbot of Wat Prachanamit, Korat requestiung help. Funds were required to build a crematorium and confirtms that the amulets would be released to the public on the 23rd and 24th October. The hand written note by LP Boonsong confirms that amulets were dispatched.

Other Important blessings: 

Apart from the 250 ceremonies, and the ceremony organized by LP Daeng etc these amulets were also specially blessed by the following sacred monks:

-Jaokhun Nor of Wat Thepsirin, who transferred sacred power into the amulets on April 25th, B.E.2513 and December 5th, B.E.2513

-Luang Phor Mi of Wat Sing, who transferred sacred power into the amulets on August 9th-17th, B.E.2514

-Luang Phor Song of Wat Jaofasalaloy, blessed the amulets on September 29th, B.E.2514                                                                                     

Committee Batch

 The  Karmakarn version amulets or Pim Teun were created in order to give to the temple committee. 

Committee batch amulets are generally made from  a finer mix than the standard pims which generally have quite a distinctive/rough appearance.

In B.E.2514 the amulets were introduced to the Thai public and Luang Phor Daeng sprinkled Pong Tabai Tong powder onto the amulet surface, and in doing so the amulets gained a new addition to their name.  

Pong Tabai Tong powder is actually gold powder collected from Wat Suthat, a famous Thai temple in Bangkok. Interestingly a number of pims were retained at the temple where they would be blessed further.





In fact during the year BE 2517, three years after they were officially released to the public a number of these amulets were blessed again by Luang Poo Waen of Wat Doimaipang, who transferred sacred power into the amulets on January 9th-10th.

The Gold filings when present on the surface of the BE 2513 amulets often makes then very easy to identify.  Note that some of these amulets were also sent to Wat Bowin.
