Chuck is a good friend of mine residing in Arizona. Lately he was a little down in self confidence. He read about this site & asked for spiritual assistance, I mailed him this piece. Not exactly an aged oldie, but a beautiful image from Wat Rakang. Hope all will be well from here onwards.

Page 7 is now opened for suggestion/contributions. IF anyone wishes to participate in this local showcase, please mail Raymond Goh your images for "pre-qualification". Errr ... not exactly the term I like to use here but I think you do agree, some form of control to prevent over flooding of duplications is necessary But, I always encourage this form of sharing.

A personal gift for a friend in US.

Soomdej Keschaiyo for my China friends

A few weeks back, I brought a few China oil & gas business friends in to Penang. Visited the Wat Buppharam (met Stan Thong for the first time). The journey has amazed all of them (especially tried out the Lifting Buddha). As they knew I have given a very high quality Supanpuri Khun Paen to my primary Partner there; all of them were asking for amulets during this trip... I distributed all my LP Ngern , Nang Phrya, Soomkor and some LP Thuad to each of them and their family members. LATER, an "itchy -mouth" friend told them they should get a Soomdej for business..dead. Each of them left me with USD50-00.. and that is the budget I had. Fortunately, a guide that leads to to this pretty lady in Bangkok, landed me with some solution. Don't asked me how much I paid, all I can say is, bolih lah...

Soomdet Wat Rakhang
A new series of the late Guru, LP NAK of Wat Rakhang images sourced for a group of China friends as personal gifts (2495 with takrut, except for the third image). Here is a view on the Takrut and another view of the three images. LP Nak's Soomdej usually has a more rectangular shape, it is longer than standard version of Soomdej by Acharn Toh. The image has variation too. Older images may not have the Buddhist script behind but these were told by WRK staffs that it was made in 2495. The LP Nak image in smaller size shown below (far left) was 10 years earlier in 2485. Far right, Soomdet WRK. Sometimes, getting amulets for friends can be very pressurized as you have to ensure what you gave maintains a certain "standard" as well as they falls within an affordable price categories. I am broke now, hehe ...

NOTE:- Virtually ALL the images appear in this site have two dimensions in their respective display. I think most seasoned Thai amulet lovers probably possess a pair of hawk eyes second to the Jews in the diamond trades, so, it is the intention to provide a LARGER view of each thumbnail in order for everyone to enjoy, authenticate or verify their originality. The technique to fully explore the convenience of this display system is - even when the larger view appears on the browser, you should use your mouse to click again to see the actual explosive view. Please bear with the slower download time of those explosive views. Enjoy.
