Phra Vicaranayanamuni (Tok Raja)

Phra Vicaranayanamuni พ่อท่านครน ปุณฺณสุวณฺโณ (Tok Raja)

Feeling good sharing in this year of Fire Rooster. Presenting the Phra Phakawam Phim Bao Phrakob Mee Hu by late Khron Ratchanaren of Wat Uttamaram Bangsek, Kampung Teresek Batu 3, Pasir Mas Kelantan. This Phra Phakawam Phim Bao Phrakob Mee Hu was one of the earlier batches of Phakawam that made and consecrated by Phor Than Kong. This Phra Phakawam was given only to close looksit – mainly to Phor Mor ( local Bomoh – white robe achan ).

This Phra Phakawam was presented to me ( together with the Black Look Om ) by Long Key ( Seng Kee ), my late guru who resided in Bukit Sireh, Kuala Krai. Long Key was one of the late Than Kong disciples. Before ordaining as monk in Wat Uttamaram, Long Kee is already a qualified Phor Mor. Long Key learnt his MOR Vicha from his grandfather. During the ordaination and his stayed in Wat uttamaram, Long Key was taught some rare Bangsek Vichah by Late Than Kong. Some of the great wichah that he learnt from Than Kong were Vicha Nang Kwai, Vicha ‘Air Palo Siku’ and Vicha ‘Nasi Kepal or Palo Nasi’. Friends of mine used to claim that this piece of phakhawam as A FAKE @ A FIRST CLASS IMMITATIONPIDNAR because of the ROUGH ( with scratch marks ) surface. He claimed that ALL Than Kong Phakhawan should be in SMOOTH ( scratch free ) surface. Hahahahahaha ! What a brilliant general statement to conclude the NEUR of the Phra Phakhawam by late Than Kong. Another friend of mine claimed that this piece of phakhawam is made by late Than Chan and Than Jerk of Wat Weng Nikhom. He said that the design and the body posture are parallel with the last batch of Phra Pidta 2530-33. When asked to clarify further, he said that…… FROM THE PHOTOS, I CAN SEE AND TELL YOU THE VAST SIMILLIARTITIES OF THE CHARACTERISTICS BETWEEN THE TWO ! Hahahaha, “from the photos” …….. superb bro ! I dun wanna place any comment over here, just look at the photos and decide. As wise saying goes, a picture paints a thousand words, implicitly and explicitly !
 

It’s not easy to identify the authenticity of Than Kong’s Phakhawam. It needs time and tones of experiences to learn and develop the skills. There are thousands of FAKES AND IMITATIONS of Than Kong’s Phakhawam in amulet markets. A lot of naïve collectors & newbies buy these fakes and imitations. Nowadays, these fakes and imitations are sold like a hot cake via websites and social media. Foreign buyers who have no knowledge on Bangsek’s stuffs can easily be prey of the unreliable online dealers.

Sharing my naïve knowledge regarding Than Kong’s Phakhawam – Correct me if I’m wrong ! Than Kong had made VARIOUS PHIMS of Phra Pidnar @ Phra Phakhawam. NONE of the PHIMS made FEATURES @ SHARES @ CONTAINS 100% of the SAME neur and design. Meaning to say that, each phim is different to one another. The uniqueness of the NEUR COMPOSITION and TEXTURE, the specific YANTRA used and the STYLE of how the khom / yantra are inscribbed are MOSTLY ALIKE but TOTALLY NOT 100% the SAME ! Thus, we can’t simply take @ use ONLY one particular phim of the phakhawam as a marking standard to compare and contrast for all phims phakhawam made. All ***** pieces of Phakhawam that I owned are made in differs years so the ***** pieces bear the contrast colours and texture and although the same formula is used to produce them. Whether we like it or not, it’s inappropriate for us to LABEL or CLAIM certain batches of Than Kong pidtas are fake by looking at the photos per se. The lighting effects, the resolution, the background, the colour of the background of the photos captured can be deceiving ! ( We are talking about the genuine Than Kong’s pidnar here, we are not referring to the 100% FAKE pieces. Fake is fake. You dun hafta crack your head to verify it ! ). In order to verify @ certify the 50/50 ( uncertain ) “genuinity” or “genuineness” of the phakhawan, we need more than our Superb Eagle Eyes skill to do so. The most crucial part of the authenticity processes that been practised by most of the Thai Amulets Experts is non other than PERSONAL HANDLING because as I mentioned earlier, PHOTOS CAN BE DECEIVING !

It’s really tough tasks indeed to learn on how to identify the genuine Than Kong’s Pidnar Phakhawam. As for me, if we ONLY use the 10x or perhaps 20x magnifying lens to magnify ONLY ONE phim of phakhawam in order to conclude the authenticity of ALL Than Kong’s Phakhawam. Absolutely, we are naive ! This is because there are wide range of imprints, materials, colours, textures, surface characteristics, yantra etc. We need some serious skills in order to differentiate these factors. Perhaps we also need the superb eagle eyes to differentiate and conclude everything that we saw under the magnifying lens. As for me, the simple do’s and dont’s in collecting Than Kong’s stuffs are……. 1. avoid the unknown or strange-look Than Kong’s stuffs, collect only a standard design @ phim 2. before collecting any, please study their imprints and characteristics thoroughly, 3. ask and ask around, if you are not familiar with the imprints, 4. gather in-depth information on the owner or the previous owner of the stuff 5. get @ buy it from the ethical and trustable dealers ! Don’t blindly trust what you hear because most of the times it’s only a making up @ propaganda story, use your brain instead ! 6. ask and keep on asking if you are doubt of any …… ! 7. if you are endowed with super meditating skill, try to COMMUNICATE with the pidta or even Than Kong to get the authenticity of the Than Kong Phakhawam. Many asking me bout the standard designs @ phims to be referred to and asked me to share the ONE so called FAKE & SCAM Tok Raja’s Phakhawam so that they can be aware off. Do accept my sincere apologises as I unable to share the fake & scam pidta photos openly here, I might be sued if I did so ! Orang Cari Makan, Janganlah Kita Masukkan Pasir Ke Dalam Periuk Nasi Mereka.

Back to the sharing of the Phra Phakawam Phim Bao Phrakob Mee Hu. This phakhawan NEUR are rough with SCRACTHING MARKS on all over the phakhawam body. These scratching marks was a natural marks due to the 2 occurrences; 1. Scratching marks during the final finishing using “DAUN MEMPELAS” – Tetracera Indica leaf. Those times sandpaper was a rare item and it was not easy to be obtained. As a substitute to the modern sandpaper, our late Than Kong used Daun Pelas @ Mempelas to SCRUB and POLISH the amulets. The mempelas leaves are harvested from the wild and used locally as a sandpaper, whilst the plant also has a range of local medicinal uses. For instance, the roots and leaves are used to treat itch. The finely crushed young shoots are made into a poultice and put on bites of poisonous snakes and the fruits are used as a treatment against common cold. If you are familiar ( used to use ) with the usage of “Daun Mempelas”, you will notice the natural scratch marks after rubbing or scrubbing using daun PELAS.

2. The second reason for the scratching marks is the ROUGH WEARING / STORING by the owner. This phakhawam was kept inside the tobacco plastic. This folded tobacco plastic was kept inside the “Rolled Top of the Sarong”. The rolling top creates a tight roll at the top that will hold the sarong in place at your waist to prevent the sarong to slip or loosen.

Sharing the 2 Than Kong Phakhawan Bao Phrakob and Look Om ( NOT parallel in colour and texture )

Next, sharing is regarding the black look om that originally given to me together with the pidnar. SOTONG ? Yupe, Most of Kelantan Amulet Experts and some friends of mine labelled this look om as fake @ imitate just because of its BLACK COLOUR. As for them, all Than Kong’s Look Om should be in BROWN COLOUR, parallel with most of the Than Kong’s Phakhawan Phim Phrakob Mee Hu. They added that, the black colour wanj is only for Pidta Phim Sam Liam a.k.a Pidta Dok Bua @ Lotus Pidta. There’s no as such black lookom. Okay, no hard feeling guys ! My only response to them is ………. Generally, Look Om is made from the left over wanj from the amulet of certain batches of amulet. In some instances look om can also be made from chewed betel nuts ( Chan Mark & Mark Tui ) from the prominent monks. Talking about Than Kong’s Look Om, the colour of the look om is determined by the left over wanj that used to make phra phakhawam. Differ batches of phra phakhawam will use and bear the differ texture of materials. Meaning to say that while making brown phakhawam, the look om made from this left over brown phakhawam will bear the same colour with the phra phakhawam. So on and so forth …….

Than Kong Sam Liam Pidta and Look Om ( parallel in colour and texture )

As a recap, the black look om is actually made from the left over wanj to make Phakhawam Sam Liam. No hard feeling ya ! By and by, Long Key used to share a great story of this phakhawam and the power of Yant Kropetch. Long Key used to say that Than Kong emphasized that by using his Phakhawam and reciting the certain verses of Yant Kropetch – each line / verse can be used for differ purposes ! For instances, if you recite the ( last ) 8th line of the Yant Kropetch – A Wik Suk Nut Sar Nu Tik in full concentration, you will be endowed the supernatural power of JANG NGANG & GAMBANG TON – Power to Stun @ Stupefy the enemy & Invincible before enemy eyes. Long Key emphasized that he used to MUM this phakhawam while reciting the 8th line of the Kropetch verses and his enemy couldn’t speak upon him and at the same time his anger was subduing Phor Luang Keaw used to share the same formulas of using the Yant Kropetch ( with certain secrets @ formulas to be followed ) for various purposes.

 

Below are the embedded secrets of the Kropetch verses ( Bear in mind that, the sharing is NOT following the Yant Kropetch order – email me if you wanna know more, TQ );
