BE 2505 Luang Phor Thuad “Tao Reed” Amulet Made from Mek Phat Alloy:

The term “Mek Phat” is well-known among amulet collectors. This alloy is used to create amulets with great power and remarkable spiritual qualities. However, it’s surprising to learn that the Luang Phor Thuad “Taoreed” amulet, made from Mek Phat alloy in 1955, which should be the most expensive, is actually one of the cheapest. Why is this the case?

The term “Mek Phat” has often been misspelled and misunderstood. Many people write it as “Mek Phat” (เมฆพัตร) or “Mek Phrat” (เมฆพรรดิ์), which are incorrect according to the Thai dictionary. The correct spelling is “Mek Phat” (เมฆพัด).

Despite the amulet’s potent spiritual attributes and the revered nature of Luang Phor Thuad amulets, this particular version remains undervalued. The reasons behind this phenomenon are worth exploring for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

What is Mek Phat? Mek Phat is a type of metal obtained through alchemical processes based on ancient Thai texts. It is believed to be a magical element with inherent power. Mek Phat is produced by smelting a combination of lead, copper, and tin. According to traditional texts, the process involves smelting these metals for seven days and nights. During this time, various medicinal herbs, including sulfur, mercury, and several potent plants like black turmeric, disappearing tree, Moke wood, black ginger, black galangal, red soapwort, and blood soapwort, must be added to the mix.

These materials are thrown into the crucible while continuously chanting incantations for the entire seven-day and seven-night period. When completed, the result is a shiny black metal with a slightly bluish hue. The metal is very hard, but paradoxically, despite its hardness, it is also very brittle and can easily crack or break if dropped or subjected to strong impacts.

In ancient times, revered monks and teachers often used Mek Phat alloy to create amulets. Notable examples include Phra Khru Pachimthitborihan (Nak Chotiko) from Wat Huay Chorakhe in Nakhon Pathom, and Phra Ajarn Thap from Wat Anongkaram. Each of these Mek Phat amulets is valued at millions of baht due to their historical and spiritual significance. The Mek Phat alloy originated from the alchemical practices of ancient times.

The earliest known origins of Mek Phat seem to trace back to Nakhon Pathom. In ancient times, people engaged in alchemy believed that they could create gold, inspired by its yellow color. Without modern knowledge of chemistry, they thought that adding yellow substances to molten metals would produce gold. At that time, it was not understood that gold is a pure element and cannot be created by mixing other metals.

Desiring to produce their own gold, people experimented by adding various yellow substances to molten metals such as iron, copper, lead, and tin, hoping to create gold. For instance, they would add a yellowish substance called Suphanna, commonly sold in Chinese herbal shops, into the melting pot. However, instead of producing gold, they ended up with a new type of metal with a shiny black appearance and a bluish hue. This new metal, Mek Phat, thus first appeared and was subsequently used in amulet creation, with its initial use being notably recorded in Nakhon Pathom.

The substance known as “Suphanna” is actually sulfur. When sulfur is mixed with any metal, the resulting alloy, once cooled, will be hard but brittle and prone to breaking when struck or dropped forcefully. When sulfur is added to hot, molten metal, it reacts to form sulfuric acid and hydrogen sulfide gas. The hydrogen sulfide gas is dark in color, has a foul odor, and is toxic to humans. Sulfuric acid reacts with the molten metal to produce copper sulfate and iron sulfate, both of which have a deep blue color. This reaction gives the resulting alloy its characteristic shiny black appearance with bluish streaks, which is a distinctive feature of the Mek Phat alloy.

The metal “Mek Phat” is considered the supreme metal in the realm of occult sciences. In ancient times, it was commonly referred to as a “sacred metal.” This metal is created through an intricate process of melting various “minerals” together in a crucible, incorporating different kinds of herbal “wan” extracts. The entire process involves the recitation of incantations and blessings. When completed, the resulting alloy is believed to possess inherent sanctity and power, even without additional consecration rituals. It is said to offer protection against dangers, repel evil spirits, and counteract black magic and sorcery.

Mek Phat is also considered a powerful object for improving one’s fortune, turning bad luck into good, and providing unparalleled protection. In ancient times, Mek Phat was classified as a type of “Luk Bao” (lightweight object), which might be confusing to some. According to Brahmin and Khmer occult texts, if someone successfully smelts Mek Phat and holds it in their mouth, they would gain the ability to become invisible, fly, walk on the tops of grass blades, and walk on water, truly embodying the name “Luk Bao.” When used to create sacred objects, Mek Phat is believed to magnify its power a thousandfold, making it exceptionally potent and revered.

Luang Pu Thuad Dao Reed (Yai) Back Amulet in Mek Phat Alloy, Wat Chang Hai, created in 1962 (B.E. 2505). This amulet was commissioned by Prince Chaloem Phon Dikhamporn Yukhon (Middle Prince). Initially, the Mek Phat alloy was not intended for sale at the temple like other mixed metal amulets. Many mistakenly believe it was created simultaneously with other mixed metal amulets at Wat Chang Hai in Pattani, but this is not true. The Mek Phat alloy amulets were created earlier, with a gap of several months before the mixed metal ones.

The amulets in gold, Mek Phat alloy, navaloha (nine-metal alloy), and mineral alloy were initially made for the prince’s family. Only later did he decide to create amulets for Wat Chang Hai. It can be said that the initial batch was intended for personal use, with some eventually donated to Wat Chang Hai.

The metal amulets of Luang Pu Thuad that Prince Chaloem Phon Dikhamporn Yukhon made for his family include gold, Mek Phat alloy, navaloha (nine-metal alloy), and mineral alloy. Back in the day, Wat Chang Hai set the rental price for Luang Pu Thuad Large Iron-Kettle Back Amulets in Mek Phat alloy significantly higher than those in other mixed metals. This suggests that there is something particularly special about the Mek Phat alloy amulets, making them more valuable.

One worshipper that participated in the ceremony of casting the Mek Phat alloy amulets and who followed Prince Chaloem Phon at that time,stated that;  “during the making of the Mek Phat alloy amulets, Ajahn Tim was present at the ceremony. The spirit of Luang Pu Thuad, through Ajahn Tim, oversaw and directed the spiritual energy of the ceremony, ensuring the creation of exactly 999 amulets using three different molds. Unlike other metal amulets, the Mek Phat alloy amulets were cast one by one into the molds, not poured in clusters like the other mixed metal versions.”

After the 999 amulets were cast, Ajahn Tim performed the consecration. During this ceremony, a fragrance like jasmine filled the air, astonishing those present. After a while, Ajahn Tim opened his eyes and, in a voice reminiscent of a very old monk, said something profound that left a lasting impression on all attendees.

The merits of this consecrated amulet include protection against all dangers, such as malevolent spirits, wild animals, and even gods and goddesses cannot harm it. It safeguards against illnesses, fevers, stomachaches, and can alleviate discomfort when ingested. In times of danger, it can shield the body and ward off any peril, whether on land, in water, or in the air. If it has not expired, the wearer remains invisible to those with malicious intent. However, it should not be used for wrongful purposes or distributed recklessly, as it is potent enough for one person alone.
