 Pra Paa La Tai Lang Liep, BE 2497 (PIM YAI)  Pra Paa La Tai Lang Liep, BE 2497 (PIM YAI)

A large and impressive amulet blessed by Ajahn Chum Chaikiri in BE 2497. These pims are very rare and well worth collecting, they will be worth a small fortune in a few years.  



The design of this pim is very similar to the original ancient amulets discovered in the province and is referred to as Pra Paa La Tai or simply Pra Sam.

About four different variants exist, the most common being that with a plain back. There is also another version with the Sam Yant impresssion  to the reverse which is also fairly common.

The other two variants are the version offered here which is very rare  and features an impression of Phra Leela to the reverse.

The rarest is Pim Kamakan and only five of these are thought to have been blessed. The reverse of this exceptionally rare pim features 3 x Chedi Meuang Nakhon seals and 4 x Yant Na Khao Ha (the same yant as seen on the Khun paen)

Phra Kru Nang Dtra are ancient amulets that were recovered from Amphur Tha Sala, Nakon Sri Thamarat. They were thought to have been originally created in BE 1500 and provided the inspiration behind the series blessed in BE 2497.

This series of pims created in BE 2497 were made from neua din mixed with auspicious herbs and sedges, very much the same as same as the composition of the original pims.

Blessing Ceremony

A total of 84,000 pims were consecrated on the 14th September BE 24597 at Wat Baromothat , Nakhon Sri Thamarat. The ceremony itself was concluded on the 12th October, (Phansa Day)  The actual blessing ceremony itself was divided into a number of 7 days periods.  Each 7 day period was used to emphasize a particular attribute, for example

Grapan Chaadtree …Invulnerability  (7 days)

Maha Ut...Protection from weapons  (7 days)
Bpong Gan Satraai… Protection from animals (& days)
Bpong Gan Rohk Pai Kai Jep… Protection from illness (7 Days)
Poot Pee …Protection from malaevolent spirits etc (7 days)

The ceremony itself was presided over by Jao Khun Prapatmunee, Abbot of Wat Baromothat. In attendance were  Ajahn Pan, Ajahn Chum and 108 other sacred monks including amonst others:

These amulets were chanted for 7 seperate purposes each for seven days, namely; Personal charm and attractivemess, Kongkrapan (Body Protection), Maha Utt (Protection from arms), Protection from wild animals and insects, Protection from evil spirits & ghosts and illness.


For protection you should use the following katha every night before sleep:

Namo tassa
Na ma pa ta
Na ma na a
Nor gor na ga
Goror nor a

Na a ga hang

The amulets were also soaked in rat & cat oil and cat & dog oil. These two sets of oposing forces are brought together in unison, increasing the power of the amulet.

In addition the amulet was blessed for invulnerablity (kong Krapan) against weapons and furthermore may in fact be used when handling weapons and the power is invoked through the use of a different katha:

Na long hai ma ha khao ha
najit thanh manit ma ma

Jit tang manit ma ma (x3)
