New Released! Phra Khun Pean amulet by Archan Sarkon

New batch of Phra Khun Pean amulet by Archan Sarkon just released few days ago. I was told that this will be the final batch of Prai Guman Khun Pean by Master SarKon but i dont know how true is this information.

几天前才出庙的 Archan Sarkon 念经严制的坤平佛牌. 据说这将是师傅的最后一帮 Prai Guman坤平佛牌.

由于Archan Sarkon 制的坤平佛牌 都有掺入他的师父 Luang Phor Tim (Wat LaHanLai) 留下的 Prai Guman 粉, 所以 Archan Sarkon 制做的佛牌渐成为新马一带佛牌收藏家的新宠.

Lok Gork - The Baby Ghost 人胎鬼仔



After seeing the Hong Kong cable show “Guai Tan” I have decided to compile some more information about lok gork.

Guman Thong (กุมารทอง), the baby ghost spirit has special power and greatly beneficial to the owner. The most well known one was from the Thai literature "Khun Chang Khun Pean" (คุณแปนคุณชาง) that Guman Thong was one of the most powerful sacred possessions that Khun Pean own, beside his famous sword "Daab Fa Fuen' and greyish SiMohk horse..


Other than the well known Guman Thong, the baby ghost spirit, there is another type of baby ghost spirit that is well known as well in Thailand and that is Lok Grok.

Lok Grok is actually a stillborn/unborn baby, very small in size and it seems that not all the organs are fully formed. Thai people believe that whomever take this stillborn baby and care for it; then Lok Grok by means of black magic in the spiritual form, will help them in many ways such as helping to protect the owner and will warn him if dangers were near, and would also bring many fortunes in various ways.



During those good old days, having faith or believing in Lok Grok was very common, however it is rare in this day and age, but still exists. If you’re interested in seeing one, it’d be very difficult to find, not like back then where it’d be in many homes in the village. Today, you might even find yourself looking at animal Lok Grok, such as dog or cat that aren’t as powerful as human, but at least it’s still Lok Grok, I think by having one, you have nothing to lose.

在看了香港有线电视节目"怪谈"系列 - 台灣不思議手記后 我激起我想去汇集更多些关于Lok Gork ("路过", 人胎灵童或俗称人胎鬼仔...听上去蛮可怕的但其实并不) 的信息资料.

我们就打从Guman Thong(古曼童, 俗称鬼仔,金童)说起吧,Guman Thong 是拥有特殊神力/能力的灵婴,古曼童会帮助他的供养者去达到他们想要达到目的。Guman Thong闻名源自于泰国的文学著作 "Khun Chang Khun Pean" (昆昌昆平). 泰国古时名将Khun Paen(坤平/昆平将军)拥有3大圣物:

那就是灰马SiMohk, 名剑 Daab Fa Fuen 还一个就是帮他出计避险的 Guman Thong.

除了众所周知的Guman Thong外 另一类型的灵婴要属在泰辽闻名的Lok Gork(路过)了.


Lok Grok实际上是经过特别仪式跟处理的婴儿的尸体(干尸) (p/s: 现在有些师傅已经取婴尸的型来代替了原有真正的婴儿尸体来制做这类护身符).

Lok Grok实际看上去很小而且所有的器官尚未完全成形。泰国人认为要是谁拥有Lok Grok; Lok Grok将多方面帮助他的主人,比方说保护他,并帮主人避险 以及以不同的方式给主人带来财富.

新马知名佛行老闆的猫Lok Gork
Cat Lok Gork

在以前, 崇信及拥有Lok Grok是司空见惯的事. 时过境迁到了现今的社会, 如果你要找个真正的 Lok Grok 却是蛮难办到事. 现今如果你有看到动物的Lok Gork,比如说狗或猫Lok Gork 虽然说狗或猫Lok Grok没有像人胎Lok Gork拥有那么强的灵力 但毕竟是难的一见的宝物所以拥有一件也算是美事一桩…而且nothing to lose!

The Powerful Talisman - TarKut

Tarkut made by various monk (list from up to bottom in sequence ) - Luang Phor Kalong, Luang Phor Kalong, Luang Phor Joy, Luang Phor Kaew, Archan WuTai, Luang Phor Thong.

What is Tarkut?
Tarkut (Takrud) is a roll talisman sheet, sacred mantras, diagrams, pictures or magical words that were inscribed on a piece of metal ... like gold, silver and Tin (pronouced as Takua/ TaGua in Thai), palm leaf, wood, ivory, tiger skin, bone or other uncommon material.and people in Malaysia normally named it as "TangKai" (in Malay language).


Most of the Tarkut mainly consecrated for KongKraPan(mainly for protection purpose, take away all dangers suffer, protected the wearers from harm, accidents, black magic) or Metta (mainly for personal attractiveness, luck, wealth/business and protection) purpose.

After the tarkut has been written, it will be consecrated by the master himself thru special session. It is then normally rolled into a tube form with center empty, sometimes both end are sealed and rings are tied over it. Takrud is not that conspicuous, easy to carry and conceal. It is always hung over the neck, tied around the waist or kept in the pocket, and therefore favoured and worn by many top and senior army, police personnel and serious collector. Takrut made by famous monk are very rare and even harder to find than amulets.

Famous Monk of Making Tarkut
There are many monk that are very efficious in making Takut, such as Luang Phor Sook/ Suk MaKhamThao (Wat MaKhamThao - Takut by Master Sook is the most sought-after lucky charm among tarkut aficionados and antique collectors), Archan Nong (Wat SaiKow), Luang Phor Cham Long (Wat Chedi Deng), Luang Phor Kalong (Wat KaoLaem), Luang Phor Tad (Wat Chai Na), Luang Phor Thong (Wat ShamPoChey), Luang Phor Koon (Wat Bahn Rai/Wat Ban Rai) and Lung Phor Pern (Wat Bang Pra) and etc.

Tarkut上经文,咒语,图腾 (Tarkut by Archan Deng,Wat Rai)


什么是Tarkut ?
Tarkut/Takrud("打固")是一种"符卷"(符管/符筒), 制作Tarkut的师傅多会亲自在素材上写上经文,咒语,图腾.常见用来制做Tarkut的素材像:金,银,锡(Takua),虎皮,棕榈叶,木材,象牙,骨头或其他少见的素材物质.在马来西亚这种"符卷"也称做"当盖"(马来语为"TangKai").Tarkut一般都用来増进人缘(metta) 或不能伤害 (KongKraPan)2个功用.

当制做Tarkut师傅在素材上写完经文后,都会经过一些特别的颂经加持的仪式而Tarkut才能算真正制作完成.

一般金属类或虎皮Tarkut都会卷成管状形,挂在脖子,绑在腰间,或放在口袋里.由于Takrud容易携带且容易收藏所,所以是军人,警察和收藏家的最爱.好的Takrut确实是非常罕见的,甚至会比佛牌更难寻获.

Tarkut名师
说到Tarkut名师要属 Wat MaKhamThao 的Luang Phor Sook หลวงปู่ ศุข (Sook MaKhamThao) 了. 由于师傅的Tarkut年代久远..现在已经非常罕见了.其他著名的Tarkut名师有 Archan Nong (Wat SaiKow), Luang Phor Cham Long (Wat Chedi Deng), Luang Phor Kalong (Wat KaoLaem), Luang Phor Tad, (Wat Chai Na), Luang Phor Thong 龙婆通 (Wat ShamPoChey), Luang Phor Koon 龙婆坤 (Wat Bahn Rai/Wat Ban Rai) and Lung Phor Pern 龙婆本 (Wat Bang Pra).

A Wat Rakang Somdej Worth How Much? 8 million baht!?

Click the above image and read the full Story

Pattaya Mail News : Phra Somdej Amulet (Somdej Wat Rakhang by Somdej Toh) estimated worth nearly 8 million baht. A district police officer, stands accused of robbery, attempted murder and threatening a person’s life with a weapon. The police officer tried pointed his Gun at the man's head (the amulet owner) and pulled the trigger twice. But the gun failed to fire.

Archan Toh 的 Somdej 佛牌(Somdej Wat RaKang)市值估价近800万泰铢!!?

巴提雅邮报 : 一区部警务人员被控: 抢劫,企图谋杀以及威胁他人生命等罪刑。事发当时该名涉罪警员欲图劫杀一名61岁男子 , 试图抢走该名男子身上的一枚顺德佛牌(Sondej 佛牌) 并朝事主头上开了2枪, 但神奇的是子弹并没射出.

Somdej Toh of Wat RaKang


Somdej Pra Bhuddhachara Toh Prohmarangsri (we called him as Somdej Toh or Archan Toh among amulet collector) the most famous and beloved monk in the nineteenth century in Thailand. Somdej Toh was born during the reign of King Rama, morning of the 17th April, B.E.2331 (A.D.1788). Somdej Toh was named "Toh" before his monkhood and then "Phomarangsi" as his ordination-name. His mother, Gade, daughter of Chai, lived at Tambon Tarr-It, Amphur Tarr-Poh (now Amphur Muang) in Uttaradit Province. His father’s name was unknown to the public; they only knew that he came from other province.

When Somdej Toh was young, he studied at ChaoKhun Arunyik Institute, Wat Intarawiharn in Bangkok. At the age of 12 in B.E.2343, he was ordained novice by ChaoKhun Bowonwiriyataera. Later he had moved to Wat Rakang to study Pra-Pariyuttidham which means the study of the words of Buddha.


Somdej Toh studied the Buddhist scriptures of the Pali Canon with several Buddhist masters. After becoming a well-known monk, he became the preceptor for Prince Mongkut, later King Rama IV, when Mongkut became a monk. During Rama IV's reign Somdej Toh was given the ceremonial name Phra Buddhacharn Toh "Phomarangsi".

He was noted for the skill of his preaching and his use of Thai poetry to reflect the beauty of Buddhism, and for making amulets call "Somdej". The amulets were blessed by himself and other respected monks in Thailand.

Another contribution of Somdej Toh is the Chinabunchorn (Jinnabunchorn/JiNaPaJaRa) Katha. The Pra Katha Chinabunchorn was an ancient Buddhist katha, inherited from Langka city, and was found in an ancient book by Somdej Toh. The Katha was improved and rewrite by Somdej Toh of Wat RaKhang. The Pra Katha Chinabunchorn is very powerful katha and believed to be the supreme Buddhist spell because the words of this katha invite the magic power of Lord Buddha Somdej Pra Sammasambuddhachao, other Lord Buddhas and Pra Arahuntaras (supreme monks who're nearly enlightened ) to protect the worshipper from their heads to their toes in addition to dispelling all evil.

Somdej Toh was sick and died on Saturday the 22, June in B.E2415 B.E at the age of 85.

** Somdej Toh also appears in many versions of the story of Nang Nak.
