Pra Somdej Ok Rong, Wat Krabok, Rayong BE 2505
One Monks Power & Another Monks Magic

It would be my guess that the younger generation of collectors know considerably more than I do about modern day iconography and the latest fancy designs. But what I can tell you for sure is that the amulet that I am about to introduce is a genuine classic with few other amulets surpassing its power including most modern days amulets. This pim is unquestionably one of the greatest proven  love amulets ever created and whatsmore  the unusual thing is that it is a Somdej pim.

This is the ultimate amulet for  charm, mercy, popularity, attraction – whoever possesses it is extremely cherished

Metta Mahaniyom. (kindness or respect shown to you by the people around you, including your superiors or colleagues)
Maha Sanae (charm and opposite sex attraction)

Understand that in times past, an amulet such as this was not created specifically for the puposes of opposite sex attarction or as a “Love Amulet”, that is a modern day expression. Rather it was created to bestow multiple blessings upon the worshipper which in this case when combined result in an extreme efficacy. To understand why that is so we need to look at how and by whom it was created.  We can then appreciate why this pim is inherently unique and its status. as one of the truly great love amulets is well deserved.

One advanatage that older generation amulets have over their modern counterparts is access to the public dataset of shared knowledge and experiences over a considerable period of time. I can assure you that this and the other pims in the same series have distinguished themselves over decades and attributed with literally hundreds if not thousands of individual blessings  . It would appear that those worshippers that have sufficiently strong faith will be rewared.

This amulet is the ultimate combination of  one monks power and another monks great magic to essentially  create a sacred object exponentially more powerful than either of the two sacred sciences combined.


Seldom has the same degree of culminative efficacy been replicated. This in part is due to  exact mastery of sacred sciences and magic along with higher level meditative powers   However it is  clear that other intangibles had contributed, one of which was the known dedication and perseverence in the preparation  of  sacred powders  and scared green bees wax so unique that even today the  knowledge and skill to create it is in the hands of but a few select disciples,who act as dedicated caretakers of  an ancient occult wisdom and knowledge

Wat Krabok BE 2505

Luang Phor Tim helped bless a number of amulets created by Luang Phor Thap,many of which are today well known as powerful love amulets This particular series was blessed in BE 2505 and consisted of a variety of pims with the most popular being Pra Somdej (Pim Yai & Pim Lek), Khun Paen and LP Thuad

Ajahn Bpatom Aat Sakon was appointed consultant to help create many of the sacred powders used in the amulet

1.     Auspicious old powders collected by Luang Phor Thap during his lifetime
2.     Sacred powders donated by Luang Phor Tim
3.     Pong Pot Mang and Phong Itijay, donated by Ajahn Bpatom Aat Sakon
4.     Old Bailarn powder from LP Thap
5.     Sacred powders donated by LP Bunmee Wat Pan Sampan Chonburi
6.     Auspicious soils collected by LP Thap
7.     Pasom See Pheung Kieow (Charming Wax)

It is thought that See Pheung Kieow or Green Charming Wax, for which LP Thap is most famous, provides a signicant amount of the power for which this pim is most noted.  His sacred charming wax, was not just given to anyone. Devotees had to spend many nights at the temple just to obtain a small quantity, which was often hung around the neck prior to meeting a lover.

1st Blessing Ceremony

Luang Phor Taap blessed on Khao Phansa day

2nd Blessing Ceremony

Blessed at Wat Krabok by many famous monks of that era

Luang Phor Tim, Wat Lahnarai presided over the second blessing ceremony held at Wat Krabok. Amongst those present were many senior monks of the era including:

LP Tim, Wat Lahanrai
LP Hom, Wat SaakMaak
LP Yen Wat Bahnlaeng
LP Lat Wat Nong Grabok
LP Taap, Wat Nong Grabok

All remained in deep meditation from 6.00 pm until 2.00 am the following morning. Luang Phor Tim went on to bless these amulets by himself for a following 8 hours without a break, pouring ceremonial water over the amulets whilst reciting incantations to further increase the efficacy.

Luang Phor Thap
Wat Krabok

Luang Phor Thap, or Prakru Attakosol, was born in Rayong Province in B.E.2420 to the family of Mr.Uen Petnakorn and Mrs.Chim Petnakorn.

He enrolled in the military until the age of 24 when he turned to the Buddhist faith, and was ordained a monk by Prakru Samut Samarnkun, former abbot of Wat Parpradoo, Luang Phor Mark of Wat Natakwun, Luang Phor Ruam of Wat Banrang, who acted as Pra Upacha, Pra Karmavacharcharn, and Pra Anusavanacharn respectively.

Apart from Dharma, Luang Phor Thap studied sacred sciences under Prakru Samut Samarnkun, who himself was very famous for his sacred charming sciences and also highly respected by the locals of Rayong Province.

Five years after his ordination ceremony he travelled into the deep forests to practice higjher level meditation and it was here that he was to meet Luang Phor Tim of Wat Laharnrai, another famous monk of Rayong Province. They became close friends.

Luang Phor Thap also aquired knowledge of various sacred sciences from LP Mak and Charm Magic from LP Yao

See Pheung

See Pheung is probably the best known  examples of enchanted lip balm to have ever been created. It is made up of a secretive blend of ingredients chosen for the magical properties they imbue. The scarcity of the required ingredients and the complexity of the rituals and incantations tests a practitioner’s perseverance and makes the process very tedious. Luang Phor Thap’s See Phueng is famous for its Metta Mahaniyom. (kindness or respect shown to you by the people around you, including your superiors or colleagues) and Maha Sanae (charm)

Charming Wax LP Thap Wat Krabok

The Knowledge to create this wax was given to LP Thap by Kru Phu, a Ubon Ratchathani native, with whom he enrolled on bees wax course.  Th reality was that it was a course on the preparation and magic to create sacred powders such as , Patamang powder, Ittije powder and Trinisinghe powder. These powders were then combined with other powders to form pencils.  However the materials to create these pencils were exteremly rare and the collection of which required perseverance and patience as they comprised of many dozens of sacred plants.

The preparation of these materials also required a  rare wood with which to mix the honey, known as chicken sticks.   This rare wood  ” Kai Kook Wood ”  can actually be any kind of wood but it must be wood that a rooster pecks with his beak to trick a female into thinking he has found food , after ahew runs over to feed he then captures his  prize. This wood is considered  paranormal in so much it causes the female to run towards the male . The wood can only be used if the event is actually witnessed

2. When going to see people of the same age or servants, use the index finger to touch the wax on the mouth.
3. When going to see an elderly person or a widow, use the middle finger to touch the lip wax.
4. When going to see young women, use your ring finger to touch the wax on your lips.

The balm may be used to attract members of the opposite sex, but should only be used where justified, and responsibly. Using it as a tool to satisfy your libido, will quickly turn a compulsive flirt’s life to tragedy and misery. 

Greatest Love Amulets Sacralised – Past & Present
Article by Yanisar


Please note that the thoughts expressed in this particular article are personal opinion and not necessarily fact unless otherwise stated

Browse the internet and you will find thousands of amulets all claiming to be powerful love charms, but the reality is quite different to the rhetoric Whilst I am sure many indeed are genuine the obvious question is to what extent and what if any are the common denominators

We are interested in the most efficacious amulets and to get any kind of  perspective on what constitutes a great amulet or the validity of the claims we need to go back in time when commercialism was not such a determining factor and where we can reliably place a greater emphasis on historical data.

The purpose of this article is not to refute the claimed power of any amulet, that is for the individual to decide, but we are interested in the parameters that could help in the assessment process and those amulets that are genuinely recognized  as true “Love Amulets” that is to coin a contemporary phrase which in itself is very ambiguous to say the least. The truth is  that most of the proven love amulets are based on a select few sacred sciences with the arcane ‘Charm” magic  Maha Sanae being the most predominant. In most cases the term “love amulet” encompasses a lot more than opposite sex attraction.

Intuitively it would be my guess that many purchasing decisions are based on  aesthetics and  marketing  rather than actual efficacy and that may ineed be true, but  one thing experience has taught me on numerous occasions,  sometimes you accidentally get it right with little known monks and ajahns , so for sure I am not here to judge.

Essentially I am interested to find and  evaluate common strands whether it be composition, siyasat, monk, lineage, data, etc etc. Whilst this may not be entirely accurate or  empircal  it may allow us to make slightly better informed choices. As originally stated this article is simply a reflection of my personal thoughts and whether any of the information contained herein is of value would be for you to determine.

My thoughts on this subject are tainted by personal experience, limits of knowledge and preferences. I certainly do not profess to be an expert on this subject but take pleasure sharing some of what I do know and 30 years experience in collecting amulets with those that may have an interest to listen.

Actually anyone that professes to be an expert in Thai amulets is full of bullshit. Even the most highly experienced and knowledgeable collectors in Thailand ( known as “Sian”) are in the most part only expert in their field of interest whether that be certain monks, types of amulet etc etc. It is fact that  experienced collectors may have a significantly broader knowledge base. make fewer mistakes, but by no means can anyone claim to be an expert on the entire subject. Talking about the amulet experts “Sian Pra” as they are known, I hold my own very controversial views, and will comit those to an article later. Please subscribe to the mailing list and you will be notified as soon as new articles are published. I try to write where possible original content that is educational (in plain english without  the crap and the hype) and as such some of what i publish may be of interest.

As a side note it is always my advice to new collectors to try and contain themselves to a limited area of interest, for example amulets blessed by a particular monk. This way you build up genuine expertise in the least amount of time. Rush off in all directions ( we all do it, myself included)  it always ends up as a costly mistake. My personal expertise, is Luang Phor Daeng, and then only his powder based amulets.

Where to start?, no easy answer to that question, so lets just jump in and take a look at some of the better known and factually proven “Love Amulets” from the past in no particular order. Yes you would be correct I do not have any agenda, answers or conclusions at this point, I will simply see where all this leads! The initial list below and associated articles will gradually expand over the coming weeks and months, so check back often.

Love Amulets
An original essay by Yanisar  (part 1 of 2)

I am often asked what are the most powerful love amulets. There are many thousands of amulets which have been created specifically to increase and enhance charisma, personal magnetism, self-confidence, charm and sexual appeal., but very few are considered great or sufficiently proven to be any more effective than one another.

Often you will find that contemporary love amulets appear particularly attractive with appealing designs, but don’t be fooled, beauty does not equate to power. Some of the most effective love amulets appear surprisingly mundane in appearance.

This two part essay will illustrate and discuss what are generally thought to be some of the most powerful love talismans and charms ever created, These are amulets that have genuinely distinguished themselves over a period of time and have earned their reputation.

It is unfortunate that in general these amulets are only associated with those that are looking to attract the attention of members of the opposite sex, but it is important not to overlook the inherent characteristics which make this variant of amulet extremely effective for those  involved in public relations, sales or indeed any business affairs where a positive response from those we interact with is desired. As such the generic term ”Love Amulet” is somewhat misleading when these amulets should appeal to a much larger audience.


The Thai word for this type of amulet is ”Phra Maha Sanay”, which literally means charm amulets and thus encompasses all of the above

Love amulets can effect a natural harmony by increasing ambient positive spiritual energy, discharging the negative energy of anger and conflict etc. It is important to recognize that the universe is a fluid, ever-changing energy pattern, not a collection of fixed and separate things.  What affects one thing affects, in some way, all things, like ripples on the ethereal plane.

Do they work?

The second question most often asked is ”do these amulets work?”,  in short the answer to this is YES they do.  The authenticity of love amulets is not surprisingly questioned in the modern era and claims of  paranormal powers  are naturally met with varying degrees of acceptance or skepticism.

But the fact of the matter is that much of the power of an amulet is based on scientific fact not on the supernatural and requires little more than faith.

Indeed it is often suggested that love amulets have no direct effect on the target, instead they affect the user, increasing confidence and attentiveness which in turn makes romance more possible, but whatever you believe it is a  fact that these amulets do work, the extent to which depends on your own personal beliefs.

In its simplest form the amulet itself  becomes a constant reminder to the subconscious as to what we might want to accomplish in love or life, strengthening our power of positive thought, image projection and visualization. When you wear a ”love amulet” the psychology behind this concept can quickly be understood and appreciated by almost everyone, irrespective of the amulet, temple, monk or indeed your religion. This power of thought can create the necessary conditions for the subject becoming enamored, hence the term ”Love Amulet”

In essence this is the common denominator by which love amulets, and in fact all amulets, derive a proportion of their their power. but by no means all the power

What distinguishes one love amulet from another?

The positive thought or faith that is placed in an amulet by those who possess them is very powerful indeed, despite the fact that many are effectively just symbolic in nature invoking certain thoughts and ideas.

But this is not the only process at work and explains why one amulet is considered more efficacious than another. The ultimate power of an amulet is also derived in part from a combination of the natural energy of the amulet itself and the spiritual energy imparted to it during the consecration. These are probably the most difficult concepts to either comprehend or substantiate.

The consecration ritual, called PHUTTHA-PHISEK or PLUK-SEK in Thai, involves the proper recitation of Buddhist scripts by Kechi monks (monks with mystical power). PLUK-SEK means to arouse the power of a person or an object by the use of a spell or incantation, hence a consecration or a blessedness.

It is said that a person skilled in meditation who has reached the fourth jhāna stage of deep meditative absorption will gain five kinds of  knowledge and supernormal powers which are: (1) divine vision; (2) divine hearing; (3) the power of knowing other’s mind; (4) the power of performing miracle; and (5) the power of knowing past lives. 

These powers are thought to support the amulet consecration. Thus, consecration and kechi monks are the key elements to create apotropaic power and transfer it into the amulets

Through the discipline of meditation, many of the great Thai monks have mastered the the ability to move, transform or intensify energy and this is the basis upon which many believe power is imparted to the amulet and what makes one amulet more powerful than another.  This concept is not thought to be in anyway supernatural by many Thais, but considered  ‘wicha’ or magic,  a fundamental natural law of nature.

To find the the most potent love amulets you have to look to the past. In years gone by the great monks lived closer to the natural world with a more immediate sense of the larger forces shaping life and destiny.

The meditative power required to impart energy into an amulet involves a physical, intellectual, and ethical separation from the phenomenal world, something that today is much harder to achieve.


Modern day magic has been disconnected from the cycles and rhythms of nature, in fact most would agree, commercialized to the extent that there are even concerted efforts to spread superstition among the gullible for commercial ends. It is one reason why most of the amulets considered to be the best have been blessed by either the older generation or monks who have since passed away.

Natural Power

The component constituents that make up a love amulet play a vital role in providing a conduit for energy and determining its inherent natural magical powers, essentially defining its power. Exactly how these work is not known for sure other than its based on arcane magic.

Much of the magic of the natural world is not seen with the eye, but is experienced intuitively as everything possesses its own a unique energetic signature or molecular vibration.   This natural magic is derived from the relationship  between the world of spirits and nature, where spirits exist not only in humans but also animals, plants and rocks.

The monk consecrating the love amulet controls these forces through meditation, incantation and telepathy which in a cosmos where everything, including the stars, planets, humans, animals, plants, rocks and the dead are connected together via strands of energy,  brings into motion basic energies that have consequences beyond our own existence and thereby determining the power of the amulet.

The monk uses a variety of substances to achieve this such as  herbs, flowers, woods, crystals, certain metals, sacred powders, aromatic oils etc. Many of these components are in the modern age bereft of all meaning like many other desecrated values, underlining a useful but sadly forgotten knowledge.

This is somewhat of a difficult concept to explain or indeed understand and exactly how a love amulet works is very complex subject, but what we do know is that science has already established that everything in this universe is made entirely of energy which is  in a state of constant  flux and change, but beyond that we must rely on our own faith and belief, which ultimately is more important than trying to explain the physics of our existence and the cosmos.

Historical Perspective

From a historical perspective the Tibetans are known to have practiced magic and occultism since ancient times, and they might have been among the earliest Buddhists to have created sacred objects and amulets intended for protection and blessing. Early Thai literature abounds with references to the use of magic and charms, testifying to the fact that such practice had been known in the country for a long time.

Luang Phu In Khema Taewo, Wat Nong Meg, Surin.

Known as “The Science of Great Charm“, there are still many people who still do not believe that it truly exists. The curiosity and desire to learn by oneself whether or not the magical sciences were genuine was the catalyst for Luang Pu In  as a young man to  study and learn all that he could about the subject of “great charm”. He wanted to know the truth.

Luang Pu In said that “In the past, I wanted women to love and admire me but our household  was so poor no girl was interested.  So I decided to learn charm magic for myself.

At a young age, he was already a master of Wicha Maha Sanaeh (the charm and charm of wealth). As a layman, he enjoys practicing Maha Sanaeh magic. When ordained, because of his interest in making amulets, he sought out great masters to teach him their respective sacred sciences

As a layman, he was most successful in seducing the ladies and flirting with them, which made all the other men in the area jealous. That’s because he has the special Maha Sanaeh wicha. In 2497, he was ordained as a bhikkhu at Sasana Buddha, and continued his journey in search of Wicha Akom, passing through Tudong to Cambodia and staying for nearly ten years to practice and study various Wichas. He specialized in Wicha by Maha Sanaeh, Metta Mahaniyom, Choke Lap, Kaa Khaay.

Luang Pu In said that whilst in Cambodia he studied Wicha from Khmer texts considered the strongest and in particular sciences under the “Kampong Chnoua” line, believed to be the most powerful way to help people succeed in love, enhance kindness, charm and attraction. “Kampong Chanua” is a pure form of  magic and magic spells of the great charm and usually only taught to those with Khmer blood.

One of the many spells he mastered was singing in the leaves and turning them into “Ya Maha Sanaeh” (attraction potion). There are two ways to do this, one is to mix it before casting spells, and the other is to mix it and turn it into oil Nam Man Prai (known as `Nam Man Prai Long Hon`) who has great power in Metta Mahaniyom and Maha Sanaeh. When Luang Phu prepared Nam Man Prai, he first dried the leaves in the sun and then ground them into a powder (some, not all). Most of the time, Luang Phu grinds them by hand. Some of the herbs in the blend include; Prai Ongkachaat. Prai Dam, Prai Jampa and other important medicinal or sacred herbs. Some will be coarsely ground and left to dry, others will be pulverized and dried into powder.

With the ancient Khmer Wicha Gampong Jam and the Wicha Nia Kajia Maha Sanaeh that he mastered, he was also able to create and strengthen the legendary deity Taep Paetch Payatorn, known as one of the most powerful spells. The strongest attraction of all Khmer Charms. Wicha. His knowledge of sacred oils and herbs, along with Wicha Gampong Jam’s secret empowerment and summoning methods, he created amulets and invoked many gods Paetch Payatorn reside in talismans of his irresistible power.

After the dough dries and the mixing ritual begins, “Look Sawaat” is also mixed with the ingredients. Luang Phu then added Nam Man Prai Long Hon to the mix, which turned the sacred Luang Phu powder used in his amulet into an extremely powerful Maha Sanaeh mantra.

It is generally considered that there are four great masters of Charm magic, notably Luang Phor Chuen of Wat Ta Ee who is considered the strongest, closely followed by Luang Phor In. Next would be the owner of the famous sandalwood charm technique that being Luang Pho Koi of Wat Pa Daeng. Last but not least is  Luang Por Pan who posses Karen Khom Wisdom  and regarded by many as the ultimate master monk with  expertise in charm magic. It is unfortunate that LP Chuen has since passed away.
