Phatalung Series 04

 ***信不信由你***


Featuring another little humble collection of mine. Pharyant Seur Yant Maha Amnaj Maha Khong Khraparn by late Luang Phor Moon of Wat Khao Daeng Tawarn Ork, Phatalung.

The only piece of Suer Yant of its kind was fully hand inscribed by late Luang Phor Moon in BE 2509/10 for his close looksik and was later given to the Pathalung old folk.



Below feature photos were taken from LP Moon's FB Close Group featuring another similar Seur Yant by late LP Moon. Both of the seur yants were fully hand inscribed and by making an in depth comparison, all 3 pieces seur yants are inscribed with 70% similar yantras.  The  depicted tiger and hanuman images are 100% hand inscribed by the same person- LP Moon. 


 


  ***信不信由你***


 

This only one piece of its kind of Suer Yant was fully hand inscribed by late Achan Nam BE 2518/19


Featuring 5 pieces ( all rounder or 108 usages ) Pharyants by late Achan Nam of Wat Donsala, Phatalung. These 5 pieces of PharYant (XXXL size, approximately 1m x 1/2m) were fully hand inscribed by late Achan Nam BE 2518/19 by using pencil.

According to the previous owner ( Kammakan ) of these Pharyants were only produced ONE PIECE for EACH phim of these PHARYANTS. Meaning to say that there would be no second piece for these pharyants.

Phra Pidnar Bhagawan Bai Pho by late Than Kong @ Khron Ratchanaren

***信不信由你***
 

 
 Sharing another little humble collection of mine. Phra Pidnar Bhagawan Bai Pho ( Bai Boddhi - with the shape of Boddhi leaf ) by our late Than Kong @ Khron Ratchanaren of Wat Uttamaram, Teresek, Repek Pasir Mas Kelantan.
 
This Phim is extremely rare and 100% hand made by our late Than Kong. According to Phor Luang Keaw ( Mor Keaw ) this Phra Pidnar Bhagawan Bai Pho was made in limited numbers ( as far as Phor Luang concern - only 3 or 5 pieces ) and only given to the close disciples especially Phor Mor. 
 

 Featuring the 4 different photos taken in 4 different dims of light. Some of the feature photos kinda shinny because of the light exposure reflecting on the dried coated janrak / latex.
 
FYI, this Phra Pidnar Bhagawan Bai Pho is actually  Phra Roobmeurn Than Kong Song Nar, Khang Lang Phra Pidnar Bhagawan - Phra Roobmeurn Song Nar ( double sided ) Khang Lang Phra Pidnar ( reverse side ) with Phra Pidta effigy. 

The FRONT VIEW of  the amulet is featuring the half effigy of our late Than Kong with the Chivorn Hnar ( thick robes ) and not Phra Pidnar.  The feature Phra Song Nar was fully coated with the original Janrak / Black Rengas latex - tapped from the Rengas tree planted by late Than Kong. Now the Rengas tree location was cleared. The tree was chopped down after the tree had been struck by the lightning and the wood is used to make the Maithaw Mahathera by Than Boon. Now the site is occupied with the gigantic Maikru Mahathera.
 

Do accept my sincere apologies as I could not share Than Kong's Roobmeurn Figurine openly here. Phor Luang Keaw used to advise me not to show / share this Song Nar openly as they might imitate / copy it to produce the fake / imitate version of this Phra Song Nar to scam / con naïve collectors.

  Side view of the Phra Roobmeurn Song Nar.
(** this side view is the best that I can share )
 
The amazing thing about this phim song nar is the weight. Although the phim is in XX size and the neur is completely  harden  and almost fossilised but the feature phra kreung is very light, amazing NEUR !

The feature photo on the left shows the perfect craftsmanship by our late Than Kong with the rough penknife marks and amazing fossilised NEUR ( composition of the materials ). The rough surface of the amulet shows the dried coated Janrak / Black Rengas latex. Besides coated with Janrak, Phor Luang Keaw added that Than Kong used the latex from BUNGA MELUR @ MELATI ( Jasmine) to rub his pidnar. Acording to Than Kong, the latex from Jasmine bud will protect and harden the neur. That is why most of the Than Kong pidnar surfaces are rough and fossilised  !
 
I used to see Phor Luang Keaw dipped this Song Nar into the PERIUK TEMBAGA ( Bronze cooking pot ) and BATIL ( Kelantanese dialek for batd namboon ) while performing ritual to make namboon ( holy water ).
 
Phor Luang Keaw's Periuk tembaga used as batd namboon.
 
When asked why have to dip the Song Nar into the water while preparing the namboon ? Phor Luang Keaw said that actually all Good Phra Kreung ( made of Neur Wanj ) can be used / dipped into the namboon. IF, if only we know how to use / dip. Otherwise, we will destroy / damage the neur. This is because, the  AURA of the amulet been used as a medium in consecrating the water from negative to positive energy. AURA is a field of subtle, luminous radiation surrounding a person or object like the HALO

 It is said that all objects and all living things manifest such an aura. The claim by Phor Luang Keaw is parallel with Emoto Masaru, a Japanese author, researcher and entrepreneur, who claimed that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. Emoto Masaru beliefs that water could react to positive thoughts and words, and that polluted water could be cleaned through prayer and positive visualization. Since 1999, Emoto published several volumes of a work entitled Messages from Water, which contain photographs of ice crystals and his experiments.
 
 
According to him, positive and negative thinking have a major impact on the surrounding environment. That concept is relatively easy to grasp, but this extremely tangible evidence of it is astounding.  ( Water, Namboon and Prayer will be discussed in-depth ).

Back to the Song Nar discussion. Another amazing thing about this Phim Song Nar is, the special  10, 4 and 2 Syllables Khatas.  According to Phor Luang Keaw, while giving away this Song Nar, Than Kong will teach the 10, 4 and 2 Syllables Khata. The khatas  were originally taught ( shared ) to Than Kong by a high rank notorious gangster leader from Thailand. The ex-gangster leader met Than Kong and requested for an ordination. A prior agreement before being ordained, the gangster leader shared his past SINS ( activities ) and how he committed crimes and violence.

The gangster head bowed and made the 5-point-prostration before handling  over his amulet ( Phra Ruang Ranpheung @ Phra Leela - made of lead - hung around his neck ) and put inside the Batd ( arm bowl ) before him. The conversation between the gangster leader and Than Kong goes on and nobody knows the real issues / contents of the conversation.

Phor Luang Keaw said, the gangster leader shared ( taught ) Than Kong the 10, 4 and 2-syllable khatas that he used  while committing crimes. The khatas should be recited in unique ways - THOI LANG ( reverse ways ). The feature khatas couldn't be shared here, not even the 1st syllable. The example of the recitation is as such......

1, 10, 2, 9, 3, 8, 4, 7, 5 and 6
6, 5, 7, 4, 8, 3, 9, 2, 10, and 1

1, 4, 2 and 3
3, 2, 4 and 1

1, and 2
2, and 1
 
The khata was once used by Bang Rajan fighters during their battlefield.  According to Phor Luang Keaw, Bang Rajan's leader will recite the khatas while their followers were marching at his back. After reciting the khatas, Bang Rajan's leader will point  his sword toward the enemies before commanding them to fight by shouting the last two syllables khatas !

The recited khatas will protect the whole troops ( gang members ) and they will fight fearlessly ! Phor Luang Keaw added that, the khatas also will help to SHIELD - protect ( Khamphaeng Qaew Jet Chan - 7 diamond shields - the powerful light flare from the body ) the leader and whole troops from voodoo, sharp objects, bullets and will make them invisible before enemies eyes - Gambang Ton !

Pla Phayun - Dugong !

***信不信由你*** 
 
 

Sharing another rare collection of mine - Than Kong's Pla Phayun Bone ( Dugong @ SeaCow ) of Phra Pidta Bhagawan Maha Ud and Phra Yod Khun Pon with Mae Nang Khuat ( reverse side ). These  Phra Pidta Bhagawan Maha Ud and Phra Yod Khun Pon were fully handcrafted by our great Than Kong @ Tok Raja.
 
These VVHTF and rare batch of Phra Kreung @ Kreung Lang were made in limited numbers and only given out to the high rank devotees. ( Thais High Rank Officer and  including arm forces ).

Pidta Bhagawan Maha Ud ( 6 Hands )

Buddha-Yod Khun Pon with Full Lotus @ Mahayana Meditation Position
 
These 2 pieces were obtained from 2 differ persons. The Yod Khun Pon was given to me by late Phor Mor Keaw and the Pidta Bhagawan Maha Ud was obtained from late Na Chau Thong's foster grandson in Tumpat.
 
Friends of mine, refuse to accept these 2 pieces as Than Kong's creation. They said that they never heard and seen these types of amulets before. They added that these types of CRAP and RUBBISH can be obtained easily from Hatyai, under bridge scam amulets market. Anyone ????

Another buddy added that, perhaps Than Kong or someone brought back the amulets or crafted the amulets and requested it to be re-blessed by late Than Kong before distributing it to the devotees. Anyone ????
 
Another friend of mine said that he used to come across the photos ( Pidta ) from other website claiming that the Pidta which was made of Dugong's bone and claimed to be handcrafted by our  late Khron Rachanaren. Anyone ????

Others claimed that the crafted image is not Phra Yod Khun Pon but Buddha instead. My answer to them was ........

"Phra Yod Khun Pon is  actually a Buddha figurine of preaching Abhidhamma in Tavatimsa Heaven. Sometimes, Yod Khun Pon also shows the posture of Great Buddha descending from Tavatimsa Heaven. That is why Phra Yod Khun Pon is depicted in 2 different postures -  sitting and standing"

Hahahahaha, so Phra Yod Khun Pon is Buddha. Only depicted in different  postures. The story about Phra Yod Khun Pon will be discussed in depth in the next blog posting.  Wait ya.................


DUGONG or DUYUNG ?
Dugong in Tagalog (a language spoken in the Philippines) means "lady of the sea."   The name refers to the fact that dugongs were the inspiration for mermaid legends among sailors in the age of exploration.  
The shape of the dugong, as sighted from a ship, may be mistaken for the outline of a human with a dolphin tail, while (allegedly) the female dugong keeps her head above water while giving birth, emitting high pitched sounds which may have been interpreted by sailors as mermaids singing.   A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Africa and Asia.

 Illustration on the right is the most strange and true report of a monstrous fish Illustration from an early printed report of a Mermaid sighting in 1604.
 
Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks and drownings. In other folk traditions (or sometimes within the same tradition), they can be benevolent or beneficent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans. 

In Malay folklore, custom and belief, the word 'dugong' is normally referring to 'duyung' or 'ikan duyung' but there is ongoing discussion / argument regarding the DUGONG and DUYUNG. They claimed that DUGONG is not DUYUNG and vice versa. DUGONG and DUYUNG are two different ENTITIES.

As for me, I'm firmly believe that Dugong and Duyung are two different entities. Dugong's name  perhaps derives from the Ikan Duyung @ Mermaid. Perhaps Ikan Duyung expect out there wanna share / clarify on this ?????

These 2 pieces of  hand crafted Nang Khuat are a good example of great craftmanship by our late Than Kong. The final works @ the design of the both amulets are superb and parallel with the fine craftsmanship.
 
The design of the hair-loop, squatting position, left hands position and the base for example, we can see clearly that the 5 loops of the hair, the sitting / squatting posture and the base are crafted by the same craftsman. 
 
Comparison between Mae Nang Khuat from Than Kong Pidta Ha Liam ( Lotus Yant Pidta ) and the Dugong's bone Mae Nang Khuat.

Personal experience of USING these Dugong's Bone Pidta Bhagawan Maha Ud & Phra Yod Khun Pon, these 2 pieces of  Phra Kreung are endowed with a supeb power of Metta Endu and Maha Amnaj.

There is a specific khatas for these Pidta Bhagawan Maha Ud & Phra Yod Khun Pon. Before wearing, you have to recite the khata and TOUCH your Hard Palate ( lelangit ) by using your right hand thumb and apply it ( Saliva ) onto the amulet or apply it onto your eyebrows. The khata read as below;

Jit Tik Suk Ngam,
Jit Tik Suk ........,
Jit Tik Suk .........

( incomplete verses, please do not recite )

The Very 1st batch of Than Kong's Bucha Statue

***信不信由你***
 
 
 Phra Vicaranayanmuni Nayaka Maha Thera
 
Featuring another stunning collection of mine.  Khron Rachanaren @ Phor Than Kong @ Tok Raja B.E. 2506 Bucha by late Cau Khun Chan and Than Mit. According to late Phor Mor Keaw, this statue was consecrated at Wat Pokok Sagu @ Wat Khosakaram in 1963. Cau Khun Chan and Than Mit, Na Cau Thong, Phor Mor Keaw and others Bangsek  lineage Phor Mors were involved in the making and Phuthapisek ceremonies.


This superb bucha was made as a commemoration of the demise of late Than Kong. Late Cau Khun Chan and Than Mit led the mission to make this superb bucha. This bucha was sponsored by few local Chinese Entrepreneurs  including some local Tanah Merah and Pasir Mas goldsmiths.

This awe-inspiring 06 Bucha was inserted with many sacred materials and then filled up with brown cement   instead of white clay. Approximately 4.6 kg in weight. Some with kring and some without.

The kring is actually a rough needle made of Satalohak - 6 types of minerals and a piece of hand inscribed takrut. According to late Mor Keaw, it was late Than Kong hand engraved takrut ! Extremely rare !  

According to Phor Mor Keaw this 06 batch bucha was made in limited numbers and was ONLY distributed among the close devotees. This bucha consists  of at least of 6 Phims;

1st   Phim - Straight head posture with tongkat on the lap.
2nd Phim - Straight head posture without tongkat on the lap.
3rd  Phim - Head leans to the right with tongkat on the lap.
4th  Phim - Head leans to the right without tongkat on the lap
5th  Phim  - Tongkat head / top on the left lap
6th  Phim - 100% cement  without tongkat on the lap.

Recently there were rumours spreading among the naïve Dollars & Cents collectors about this 06 Bucha. They spread the rumours / misleading information by saying that this 06 Bucha was made by Late Cau Khun Mit at Wat Peyaram in Tangkak, Johor.

Well, it is quite true that most of these 06 Buchas were owned by Johorean and Singaporean. Most of them rented this bucha from Late Cau Khun Mit at Wat Peyaram. Bear in mind that, most of the 06 bucha rented from Wat Peyaram were GILDED bucha ( with gold plated ) and not the brown copper ! Reverend Sri Wan ( Maechi ) in Wat Peyaram Tangkak was the person who led the gold plating project for this bucha.

Actually this 06 Bucha was made and consecrated in Wat Pokok Sagu @ Wat Khosakaram. After the Phithi and Phutapisek the statues were kept at Wat Uttamaram by late Cau Khun Chan. Late Phor Mor Keaw said that Late Cau Khun Chan did not distribute openly this 06 bucha to devotees. This bucha was only given specially for the main donors and sponsors. Most of the buchas were kept secretly in the Ubosot because.........

" Muloh ni ( Than Chan ) SAYE ( loves ) bucha ini dan SAYE nok lepas bui ore bucha ".            

Said Phor Mor Keaw.

After the demised of the late Cau Khun Chan. Than Mit brought all those 06 Buchas to Wat Tangkak. Cau Khun Mit emphasised that there were a few thefts cases ( before the grille installation at the staircase ) in Wat Uttamaram while he was away and resided at Wat Uttamayamunee in Singapore. That was the reason why Than Mit  had brought all of the precious stuffs ( Than Kong maikru, bucha 06, Rian kao, 139  silver based pidta and others ) to Wat Peyaram, Tangkak.

The photo above is the original Than Kong's 06 brown copper bucha before going through the gold painting / plating by late Reverend Sri Wan ( Maechi ) in Wat Peyaram Tangkak.
 
Why  brown copper and gilded buchas ? The brown copper bucha  is the original 06 Bucha which (mostly) only can be found in Kelantan whereas the gilded 06 bucha are mostly found in Johor and Singapore. The simple clarification are the brown copper was given away by Late Cau Khun Chan after the Phutaphisek in Wat Batu 5 and Wat Uttamaram, whereas the gilded bucha was rented from Cau Khun Mit from Wat Peyaram, Tangkak and Wat Uttayamunee, Singapore.

The real story behind this 06 Bucha.............

This 06 Bucha was originally made for only 2 blocks / moulds with 2 phims ( straight and leaning head postures - with and without tongkat on the lap ).

Late Cau Khun Mit's look yom and Phor Mor Keaw emphasised that those time - BE2506 ( 1963 ) it was diffilcult to gain and gather the materials needed to make this bucha. Gold, silver, copper, bronze were rare items. Money was another problem. The committees faced some difficulties to raise the fund. In order to solve those problem, the bucha was order / made in few times and by separate orders. According to Late Phor Mor Keaw this bucha was ordered / made in small quantities. The first order were only 30 buchas and followed by another 30 and 20 buchas later on. Late Phor Mor added that altogether the order was made in 3 separate orders.

" Dulu duit payoh. Tembaga payoh nok jupo. Puok tokey Cino odar sikit-sikit. Ada duit, ada bare baru odar ".            

Happened to be that all the 3 batches of orders were slightly different in designs. The dissimilarities are the head position - straight versus leans to the right. Another vast dissimilarity is the placing of the Maikru / Tongkat. Some of the maikru ( head / top ) was place on the right lap and some of the buchas came with the maikru ( head / top )  was on the left lap. The committees didn't realize the dissimilarities until the phutapisek was completed. The variances might  happened during the casting, pumping (the head) and wielding (the maikru) processes, perhaps ! 

 

Above photos are the samples of the dissimilarity between the 2 gilded buchas.  Straight head position with the maikru ( head / top )  is on the left lap and  head leans to the right with the maikru ( head / top )  is on the right lap.
 
Some naïve collectors claimed that the 06 Bucha with maikru on the left is fake and the one with maikru head on the right lap is genuine, rare and more powerful are baseless. Some even came out with their own theory that the straight head position is the 1st batch and head position which leaning to the right is the 2nd or the redo batch.  As mentioned above, there is nothing special about this dissimilarity.  It was only a slip-up or oversight during the casting, moulding, placing and wielding !
 
The 2 gilded phims with and without tongkat on the laps. ( photo  from unknown  internet sources )
 
About the 6th Phim - 100% brown cement 06 Bucha. So far I haven't seen one. The only 06 cement bucha that I saw was on late Phor Mor Keaw bucha altar. Late Phor Mor didn't mention about the quantity made. It was rough and easy to break statue.

  "Lepah baco tu muloh ni suruh pilih nok hok mano, aku napok doh, hok simen tu ".            
 
Another noteworthy / undisclosed secret embedded about this 06 Bucha is the embroidered DOT at the edge of the right eyebrow.


Close view of the undisclosed elevated DOT mark on the right edge of the eyebrow. Why the DOT  ? DOT or MOLE ? Accidentally or purposely ? Why at the right edge of eyebrow ? The answer is DUNNO ! Hahahahahaha.... Will talk in depth on that undisclosed DOT.
