When people ask the locals about who are the guru monks in Samut Songkhram Province? The locals would answer back by saying that Luang Phor Kaew Wat Phuang Malai is one of the guru monks in Samut Songkhram Province. Luang Phor Kaew is the former abbot of Wat Phuang Malai. In fact, Luang Phor Kaew was born in Samut Songkhram Province in the year BE 2393. Luang Phor Kaew is a guru monk that is very knowledgeable about Wicha. He consecrated many amulets when he was alive and the wearer of his amulets has also experienced protection against harm and danger. Nowadays, Luang Phor Kaew’s amulet is regarded as precious and hard to be seen among amulet collectors. As Luang Phor Kaew passed away in BE 2462 at the age of 69 having spent a total of 49 years in monkhood.

One of the famous amulets consecrated by Luang Phor Kaew would be his Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn. Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn is an amulet that is over a century old and is considered a member of the ‘Gao Yang Tee Kuan Mee Dtid Gaay’ (Nine Sacred amulets which one should wear for perfect blessings) of olden days, which was a famous proverbial saying of devotees of amulets in Thailand in olden times. Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn is also considered one of the top nine Krueang Rang of all time. As it is known for its Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad and Metta Maha Niyom.

Luang Phor Kaew will consecrated his Takrut Bailan by using the Bailan that came from the village of Bang Pern, whose name means ‘Block Guns’ and is part of how he began the empowerment of Maha Ud and Kong Grapan Chadtri within the parchment scrolls before inscription. Luang Phor Kaew would asked his devotees that who is willing to go Bang Pern to cut Bailan parchment for Luang Phor Kaew to inscribe but the devotees would ask him this question “ Why does we need to travel to a far place to get the Bailan parchment when there are nearby places that also has Bailan parchment ?” Luang Phor Kaew would reply by saying that if one wants the best of the best, sometimes it is required to travel far and wide to find it but if one does not go to get it then one won’t likely have the chance to have the good thing in life.

After collecting the Bailan parchment, Luang Phor Kaew would inscribe the Bailan parchment with a Khom letter “MI” and encircle it with the inscriptions of Khata Hua Jai Suea Saming Were Tiger Invocation (Phū Pi Phū Pa) in sacred Khom Agkhara characters. The Hua Jai Suea Saming is also known as the Hua Jai See Sahaay (four friends heart Mantra).

One strange thing would happen as Luang Phor Kaew gathered the materials in his Kuti to inscribe the Takrut, the birds in the forest would make lots of noise chirping and calling out. But as soon as Luang Phor Kaew began his inscriptions, they all fell silent. As he finished the last one and closed the ceremony, the birds would begin to resound with loud calls and start singing again.

Luang Phor Kaew then declared this to be a confirmation and sign that the spell within the Takrut possessed Maha Ud, to silence (guns and enemies). Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn is especially well-known for Kong Grapan Chadtri but in addition is also highly regarded for Klaew Klaad and Maha Lap Serm Duang Metta Maha Niyom.

This indicated that Luang Phor Kaew knew that the Bailan parchment from Bang Pern had special powers which is not found in all Bailan fields and that the village of Bang Pern did not get its name for no reason as the earth powers within this municipality defeated the powers of gunpowder, through a high presence of gunstopper minerals in the earth.

Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn is one of the most ancient forms of Takrut, and is considered to have protection against all forms of danger, including physical harm against sharp objects that pierce the skin (Kong Grapan Chadtri), Anti Ballistic Weaponry (Maha Ud), evade accidents (Klaew Klaad), against poisonous wild animals (Pongan Sadtw Raay), Anti Black Magic (Gae Aathan) and Evil Spirits (Gan Phuudt Phii Pisaj).
