Hoon Payont Aatan Yot Hian

Hoon Payont Aatan Yot Hian - Luang Phor Dam, Wat Santitham, Sakaeo

Phra Sarin Dharmapalo (Luang Phor Dam) of Wat Suntitham, Sakaeo province, is a specialist in Khmer black magic sciences.

This Hoon Payont was created by Luang Pgor Dam in strict accordance with ancient  Cambodian black magic or "Wicha Saiyasaat" and sacred sciences, known as "Wicha Pook Hun"  Made from many sacred powders including; Pong Maha Poodti Lin Tong and Pong Aatan. 



This Hoon Payont is particularily powerful and will follow the commands of the owner. In addition it will help to increase Prestige  (Baaramee), increase popularity and charm (mâyt-dtaa má-hăa ní-yom), enhance fortune, luck (Chok Laap) and prosperity. Most importantly this potent spiritual force will  protect the owner from those that bear malice or from black magic

These amulets were blessed on the 24th October BE 2553 and is supplied with all the original temple packaging and kathas.

The Hoon Payont or Enlivened Effigy is a popular pim but relatively few people actually have a good understanding of this amulet or indeed realise that it is quite an old amulet and not a modern day pim as the name may suggest. (Today many people refer to these pims as robot amulets.)

The science to create Payont is highly specialized and based on archaic knowledge, A knowledge in fact based on the principles of the 4 or 5 cosmic elements, without which  it would not be possible to breathe life into the inanimate effigy

Blessed by Phor Tan Kloi , who is without question amoing the most famous monks having created this kind of amulet. 

These critical elemental components are

Din (soil),
Nam (water),
Fai (fire),


A fifth cosmic force is known as Akasha

All are thought to be essential to human life itself. In early belief physical properties are assigned to the elements: earth is solidity; water is cohesion; fire is temperature; air is motion; and space is the spatial dimension that accommodates the other four active elements.

In addition, the elements are correlated to different emotions, temperaments, directions, colors, tastes, body types, illnesses, thinking styles, and character. From the five elements arise the five senses and the five fields of sensual experience; the five negative emotions and the five wisdoms; and the five extensions of the body. They are the five primary pranas or vital energies.

They are the constituents of every physical, sensual, mental, and spiritual phenomenon.

Sacred kathas are also required to imbue the Payont with life-force or spiritual energy and thus giving what is essentially an inanimate object a consciousness and an intelligence of some kind.

Many Payont are believed to be potent spirit forces that are able to depart and return to the idol to do their masters bidding. It is common practice for  payont to be used for protection and often employed for example by farmers to safeguard crops or for protection of  business premises. Another popular practice is to carry a payont in the car as a means to prevent accidents

Payont can either  be carried on the person, taken with you wherever you go as a means of personal protection or can be stationed in a single location with a specific task.

Most Hoon Payont are made according to an ancient scared science known as Vicha Pook Hun. The creation of Hoon Payont amulets is quite old and not a modern amulet as many believe. In fact there are records of this type of amulet being create several hundred years ago.

Although the historical records are somewhat vague one of the very earliest accounts was during the reign of King Ajatasatru, when a monk known as Pra Mahākāśyapa was asked to gather relics of Buddha from various locations returning them to Rajgir City in the Indian subcontinent.

The relics were then buried in a pit dug into the ground and guarded by Hoon Payont, or effigies made of grass and sappanwood, made potent by magic incantation.

In 319 B.C., during the reign of King Asokaraj, Intharapatta City,  these relics were  recovered from the ground to distribute to 84,000 cities. Legends tell us that Indra himself had to assist in the process, releasing the Hoon Payont back to the elements from which they were created, otherwise access to the relics would have not been possible.

Over the course of time much of the information about Enlivened Effigies has been lost. However there are a number of Thai historical accounts and in particular from the Tale of Khun Chang Khun Paen. "Nang Thongprasri had taken her son to study with Khrua Ta Khong of Wat Khae until her son completed Khrua Ta Khong’s knowledge in Hoon Payont. Then he performed magic incantation to summon groups of enlivened effigies,Thronging out of their home, acclaiming and hollering in great activity Khun Phaen rode a horse to attack and slaughter the front line.All the Hoon ran as fast as wind, instantly overtaking the horse on both sides.Spells and magic filled the sky so much it became dark and hazy and shivered.The earth was as if it was being turned upside down because of the magic prayers…"
