Pra Pitda Phor Tan Mui

Amongst all of the sacred amulets blessed by Phor Tan mui, his Pitda Nam Mon Kwai amulets are by far the most famous and thought by many to be the most powerful. These amulets were personally blessed by him for years, never asking the assistance of others to help in the sanctification. All the power emanating from these pims is the pure energy of this great monk.

The amulets were made of two particularly auspicious components, namely; Pong Patamang or Patamang powder and quite uniquely, buffaloes’ milk. Phor Tan Mui used the milk as a binding agent for the various sacred powders, in fact in preference to cows milk which he had stated would not provide the durability and strength.

Patamang Powder

Patamang Powder was the most famous of all his sacred powders, just in the same way that for example Pong Prai Guman powder is famously associated with Luang Phor Tim

However this is a very difficult and complicated powder to create, because of numerous spells that must be written with Dinsorpong (Thai chalks) onto a black board, which are then erased and the chalk dust collected.

This was a widely known technique used by LP Toh, Wat Praduchimplee. It takes a considerable amount of time to collect sufficient powder with which to actually create the amulets.

Numerous spells must be chanted to create this powder including

Napagung Pintu
Namo Buddhaya
Ongkarn Uthai
Maha Wai
Maha Mek

Phor Tan Mui is known to have increased this list substantially to ensure the efficacy of his amulets. Also included were spells such as this one in particular called “Ongkarn Prapatamung”.

“Ohm Ongkarn Prapatamung Tung Tair Gumnerd
Mi Sukda Dechochai Yomtoklong Ti Nai Bunlai Nun
Dut Duang Pra Suriyun Lair Mekfon
Dai Sangote Asongkai
Yom Wun Wai Tung Loka”

This sacred spell is been highly respected for the multiple blessings that it would bestow upon the worshipper such as protection from danger, charm and fortune.

Actually documentation notes that this spell in particular when used by a monk can provide the power of invisibility and the power to conquer evil. Having said that this power can only be realized effectively by those that practice strict Dharma.

Sacred Powder

Interestingly these Pra Pitda Nam Mon Kwai amulets were only given to men, for women Phor Tan Mui had created Pra Pratarnporn amulets which he has said would increase fortune and charm

These amulets are now very scarce and sourcing original examples is not easy. Those that do own them generally will not part with such treasured possessions.

Prices of these pims whilst still affordable have been climbing for years.
