Takrut - Luang Phor Prom – Wat Chong Kae, Nakon Sawan

(SPECIAL PRICE FOR QUICK SALE - WORTH WELL OVER DOUBLE THE ASKING PRICE)


Luang Phor Prom is regarded as one of Thailand’s most revered and sacred monks. Today his amulets are very valuable and highly sought after by collectors. It was firmly believed by many worshippers that he could see the future and was often referred to as the monk with the “Golden Mouth” after many of his predictions were realized.

This classic takrut, known as Takrut Tohn, is very rare indeed and we are fortunate to be able to offer this example. Typically you will only find the 5 inch version which even in the local Thai market will change hands for at least 300.00 USD.

This is the very much rarer and IMPRESSIVE 10 inch variant, made from rolled lead with knitted thread to both ends. An easy amulet to authenticate as it stamped to both sides with the bell shaped temple logo (which should be clear and precise) and is also hand inscribed with sacred katha by Luang Phor Prom himself. This takrut is guaranteed genuine for life

Takrut is believed to be exteremely powerful and in particular for protection from ones enemies, black magic and other forms of evil.

 


Background - Luang Phor Prom
 

Luang Phor Prom Thawaro was born on Thursday 12th April, BE 2426 in the year of the goat in Tambon Banphraek, Amphur Maha Rat, Ayutthaya province.

During his youth he was schooled by a local monk, learning to read and write both Thai and Khmer.

On the 15th March BE 2447  he entered the priesthood at a local temple, Wat Keanlai, where he received the alias Thawaro bestowed upon him by venerable monk Tomya, his Buddhist preceptor.

He studied under many illustrious teachers of that era including Ajahn Puang, disciple of Luang Poo Mah Wat Bahng Muang,  from whom he learnt meditation “wí-bpàt-sà-naa”,  and black magic “wí-chaa săi-yá-sàat”.  Ajahn Puang was himself the disciple of Luang Phor Mah, Wat Bahng Muang, the great monk that taught the former King of Thailand, Pra Jao Thaksin Maharaj (Rattanakosin period).


 




He also studied sacred sciences from Ajahn Poowon and in particular incantation or  “Katha Aakom. Ajahn Poowon was the disciple of Luang Phor Nin, Wat Keow Pah Sak. He also further studied higher meditation under Luang Phor Dam and sacred sciences alongside hiscontempories such as Luang Phor Doem, Wat Nong Pho etc

Luang Phor Prom went on pilgrimage all over Thailand including Myanmar, reaching as far as Yangon where he was known to have visited the Shwedagon Pagoda to pay respects to the relics of three previous Buddha’s.

On his return to Thailand via the jungles of Kanchanaburi, he reached Mount Chongkae, Amphur Takhil,  Nakhon Sawan where  he took up temporary residence in a cave to shelter a storm. He used the opportunity of solitude to practice meditation and maintain the Buddhist precepts.

Local villagers learning of his existence invited him down to Wat Chong Kae which at the time did not have an abbot, in fact the entire monetary was neglected. It was not long after that he was formally invited to take up the position of abbot in BE 2460.

 



He sold much of his family land to fund the repair and reconstruction of the temple. It was here that he first started to bless sacred amulets to help in the effort to raise funds. Many of his amulets are uniquely bell shaped or stamped with a bell.

He remained at the temple for some 54 years and passed away on the 30th January BE 2518 at the age of 91. His body was placed in a glass coffin in the sermon hall, where it remains to this day in an undecayed condition.
