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.
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.

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