Wat Pak Nam emblem


An original first bacth of Wat Pak Nam by L P Sod
It is more than half century since the great guru Luang Phor Sodh was decease but his teachings and spirits live on, manifesting the righteous truth. But to most public who may not be practicing the technique, one of the easiest way is to interrelate possession of his creation of amulet that may channel his spiritual power for safety, protection as well as satisfying personal aspiration in business objective. Although in terms of historical background, Wat Pak Nam images are not entirely considered to be very aged as compared to many other established Thai amulet forms such as Soomdej, Soomkor, Nang Phaya, Phra Rod etc., where with the current version evolved at its 7th generations as at 2006, it is approximately translated to be a new batch in every 10 years of cycle. However, over the last few decades,many incredible local legends and success stories have lead the many Thai public to think Wat Pak Nam images are great for such intention/purposes.

I first had mine back in late '80 (to be exact - it was my second amulet after the Nang Phaya), without going into details, I have enjoyed some personal experience which had me convinced this is truly a great image for businessman. Frankly, I had little knowledge in relation to its background until half a few years ago where I would assume many others who may also face the same dilemma in half-baked knowledge on this unique image form - probably this is the main reason which has prompted me to take advantage of a recent trip to Bangkok to allocate some spare time to take a visit to Wat Pak Nam so as to use the web to provide a visual journal for those who may has an inner desire to find out more with the Legendary Guru Monk, his creation in amulet form, his wisdom thinking as well as featuring this important Thai Buddhist landmark where it had all began with.

Quick Time Movie link   Wat Pak Nam distributes two VCD collections which contain MP3 (recording of chanting) as well as a series of movie clips of the late Luang Phor. I have edited a few clips for you to take a view of the late Guru in "live" state while he was still acted as a living legend in Thailand. The purpose is more on educational merit where the movie conveys a realism of a legend which is tangible via a modern method in motion video clipping. Apple's Quick Time (544k) or AVI file (399k) for PC user. You can actually buy directly from the temple, I think (the link and address of Wat Pak Nam is published at the bottom of the first / fourth page.
