Luang Phor Kram

Luang Phor Kram

by Jun Wei

Wat Phra Ngern of Nonthaburi Province is located at Talingchun Suphanburi Road, Klong Bangmuang Sud-District of Bang Yai. There used to be a former abbot of Wat Phra Ngern that is very well-known. That is Luang Phor Kram.

Luang Phor Kram is known to be the disciple of many guru monks. Just to name two of his teachers, they are Luang Phor Boon Wat Klang Bang Kaew and Luang Phor Parn Wat Bang Nom Kho.

Most of his amulet clearly shows an unique style of pim that indicated that he was a disciple of Luang Phor Parn. His amulets are highly distinctive, stylised and beautiful making most of them instantly recognisable. Although Luang Phor Kram had passed away more than 70 years ago these amulets are still in great demand and are highly sought-after by amulet collectors. A unique feature in many of his amulets is turtle or Phra Phaya Taoreun on the reverse. On top of that, some of his most popular pims are made from sacred black powder called Phong Phayataoreun, composed of baked soil and bailan powder. It is believed that these amulets are very efficacious and in particular for protection and boosting of luck, particularly in court cases and legal affairs. It has been rumoured that if a wearer of the amulet writes their name and birth date on a piece of paper and places the amulet upon the paper they could win their disputes or court battles.

Luang Phor Kram also consecrated many different amulets including Takrut.

Luang Phor Kram 是上一代Nonthaburi 的名僧,主要受業於 Luang Phor Parn Wat Bang Nom Kho Luang Phor Boon Wat Klang Bang Kaew.

除了重製Luang Phor Parn 的神獸牌外,他的作品常用龜符印當作標誌. 他的牌是以人緣、保護及幸運為人所知,尤其特別是,泰國人說他的牌可擋官非,牌友會把祈願單壓在他的牌之下,特別祈求化解官非,傳說將自己的名字與出生日期寫在紙上,和牌一起貼放,向佛及 Luang Phor Kram 祈求之後,就可以在官司當中獲勝或免災, 這當然是聽聽就好. 他一生製造了不少的佛牌,卻是供不應求,現在他的牌仍然是泰國最具知名度之一.
