Luang Phor Maha Surasak learn the traditional method of making Bia Gae direct from his master Luang Pu Cher of Wat Klang Bang Kaew, Nakhon Pathom Province.

The magic science to create Bia Gae amulets was known and inherited from the Ayuttaya Period or at least 400-500 years ago and many believe that the tradition is older than that.

Bia Gae (Cowrie/Cowry/Seashell, commonly filled with mercury and takrut) is a special kind of amulet which is widely use to avoid and protect from Black Magic, Evil Forces, Ghosts and Spirits.

Cowrie or Cowry shell is a very beautiful shiny tropical sea shell, it is humped back sometimes decorated with spots like a leopard skin. During ancient time in China, South East Asia and Africa, it was commonly used as coin or money. The Thai people called it Bia Gae and used it instead as a talisman for protection. The arched back of cowrie is like a shield and therefore it is believe that it could bounce off evil energy, similar to tortoise shell was employed by Feng Shui master in China for warding off bad energy. Mercury was also filled inside the cowrie, takrut then placed at the gap of the cowrie, and sealed tightly with special ingredients preventing it from leakage. Sometimes, it will be tied around with strings and painted with lacquer.

The wearer believes that he will be protected against: black magic, bad luck, evil forces and demons. Bia Gae are known to be effective for protection and in particular from evil influences and malevolent spirits. It is not uncommon for persons on their death bed to request such an amulet as protection from spirits that will endlessly disturb and torture the dying. It is said by some that such amulets will also help to set the soul free and give protection beyond the grave,ensuring a smooth passage into the next life.

Buccha Phra Sivali, Luang Phor Maha Surasak, Wat Pradoo, Samut Songkhram Province (B.E.2555)

Made : 300 pieces.
Number : 237 (in Thai Numerals)

Phra Sivali
In one of his past lives, Phra Sivali (Pāḷi: Sīvalī Thera) was blessed with the opportunity to see the Buddha Padumuttara (the 13th Buddha). At that time Buddha Padumuttara gave to a monk the honor of being foremost among his fellow monks obtaining the Four Requisites (1: food; 2: shelter; 3: robes; 4: medicine). Upon seeing the people offering an abundance of those Four Requisites to this particular monk, Sīvalī was deeply impressed and made a vow to attain a status in monkhood similar to that of the monk he had witnessed.

Buddha Padumuttara noticed Sīvalī’s earnest dedication and he told him that, in a future life time – at the time of Gotama Buddha – his strong determination to become foremost among the monks obtaining the Four Requisites would become reality.

Then, in the time of Gotama Buddha, Sīvalī was born as a prince. Legend has it that because of an unwholesome deed he had performed (as an unrighteous King creating a lot of suffering to his subjects) in one of his past lives, his mother had to carry Sīvalī in her womb for a period as long as seven years. When the seventh year had come his mother could not yet give birth for another six days. Then, on the seventh day she worried she might die soon, so she requested her husband – the King – to invite the Buddha and his disciples for a meal at the palace so that she could offer them food for their alms. The King conscented to her request, and took care of the preparation of the meal for the monks.

After the Buddha and his disciples had finished their meal they bestowed blessings upon the queen (Sīvalī’s mother), which caused her pains to cease. Then when the Buddha and his disciples had left the palace she give birth without any further problems. Thus a wealthy prince by the name of Sīvalī was born in this world. Remarkably, the pains and hardships of both royal family members and those of the people living in their Kingdom had ceased and made way for an abundance of food and wealth.

Later Sariputta would invite Sīvalī to join the monastic community to which the queen granted Sīvalī her permission to do so. Whilst his hair got shaven he contemplated on the 32 parts of the body and its impurities. Immediately after that Sīvalī attained liberation (Pāḷi: mokkha; Sanskrit: mokṣa - a synonym for nibbāna / nirvāṇa).

From that moment onwards, the monks started to notice that wherever Sīvalī went to travel, he and his fellow monks were never short of the Four Requisites. In fact, they were always given an abundance of offerings by the laity. The Buddha soon recognized that Sīvalī’s vow from the past had now come to fruition, thereby declaring him foremost among the monks obtaining the Four Requisites.

Apart from the fact that Sīvalī was an arahant disciple of the Buddha, and had played an essential role in taking care of the Four Requisites for the monks in the monastic community, Thai people worship Phra Sivali as an arahant with miraculous power to quickly attract an abundance of prosperity and wealth.

(The information about Phra Sivali is from others website. Just for reference.)


The below paragraph is Sivali mantra praying for good luck and fortune. Scale of success is based on your mind-power or will; the more concentrated, the more successful you are!!

"Sivali ja Mahathero Devatanarapuchito Soraho Pajjayatimhi Sivali ja Mahathero Yakkhadeva Puchito Soraho Pajjayatimhi Ahang Wanthami Tang Sathatassatherassa Aetang Khunang Sotthilabhang Bhavantumae."

Buddha's Footprint, Rian Kathin Pidta 1st Batch, Silver Material, Luang Phor Maha Surasak, Wat Pradoo (B.E.2553)

This medal was Chanted After Rain Retreat and Wai Khru Ceremony.

Buddha's Footprint - Amulet of Buddha's footprint symbolize Buddha's presence in his teachings - the dharma and enforce the fact that he was a mortal man who walked the earth. It reminds us that the spiritual life has its feet on the ground, and that while we aspire to 'transcendence', we should never lose awareness of the material plane of existence. At the same time, a disembodied foot speaks of Buddha's absence, the absence of the human personality, and by extension, his non-attachment to this life. 

Buddha's footprint, or Buddhapada is one of the anionic symbols of Buddhism - which is to say, it doesn't attempt to be a true likeness of the master. For years after Buddha's death - in keeping with the master's instructions (according to some believers) - his disciples kept Buddha's physical incarnation out of the teaching. Images like the lion, the dharma wheel, the begging bowl and footprint served to invoke the master's presence.

The first 'footprints' were engraved in stone. Traditionally, the toes of the feet are of equal length. These carvings bear the imprint of the Dharma Wheel at the centre of the sole. Other Buddhist symbols might have been applied as well. In some more elaborate versions of the footprint, an aspect or event in the Buddha's life is displayed. Sculpted images of the Buddha's footprints appeared long before any statues and carvings depicted the human form of Buddha, which came several centuries later. 

Buddha's footprint comes in another form called a 'relic'. These are naturally occurring rock formations in the shape of a footprint. One Japanese author has found 3,000 such relics throughout Asia, including 300 in Japan and 1,000 in Sri Lanka. Myths have grown up around some of the relics, including the Buddha's 'magical' visits to those countries that have perpetuated his teachings. Many of these 'natural' footprints have become places of pilgrimage for the devoted. The most famous are located in Sri Lanka, Thailand and China. 

Devotees treat the footprint as something to gaze upon and to touch with reverence. Others see it as a kind of magical object that is imbued with the Buddha's energy. Sculptures of the footprint are often protected in special temple structures, to which visitors pay homage with offerings and flowers. In religions and cultures around the world, people have long shown their respect and devotion by venerating the feet of deities, gurus, and saints - indeed, anyone who is held in high esteem. The practice, very much alive today, involves bowing to the ground and, with the head or fingertips, touching the feet of 'the holy one'.

Buddha's footprint is a powerful reminder that the ideas of a single individual can transform the world, that spiritual pursuits take place in a material world, and they may act to help a believer to 'follow' in Buddha's path and his teachings, literally by 'following in his footprints'. 


Effect: It has superb power of protection, prosperity, harmony, avoiding negative influences or chi, black magic, winning over business competition.

Somdej Phra Puttajarn Toh Phromarangsri Buccha (5" Lap), Wat Rakhang Kosittaram (Temple of the Bells) (B.E.253x).

Size: (5 x 5 x 8.5) inch / (length X width X height) 


SOMDEJ PHRA PUTTAJARN TOH PHROMARANGSRI (SOMDEJ TOH)


Somdej Toh was born in 17 April B.E.2331 in the 7th years of Groong Rattanagosin era of King Rama 1st. Even though Somdej Toh may act rather unfashionably but never capriciously he had been known as a highly eccentric monk. The legend has is that King Rama the fourth favord him a great deal. it was also known that King was a true expert on astrology and astronomy to the extent that he could even predict the solar eclipse in advance. The king together with his son along with the diplematic corps proceeded to WhaKoh in Prachaub and withnessed the solar eclipse - an event which surprised everyone-concerning his ability in mathematical and astrological prediction.

Before he ascended to the throne he was voted unanimously by the nobility to leave monkhood and became the King of Siam. Being a keen astrologer, he believed that the birthchart of Prince Issaresrangsarn, his younger brother, was excellent so he appointed him anohter king called "Phra Pinklauo". It was also believed that the birthchart of Somdej Toh was also examined by the king as Somdej Toh did but the king were displeased with such plagiarism.

According to his birthchart, it was known that Somdej Toh was a very intelligent and highly capable monk. At the time that he was born, the "Sri" or special merit was upon his ascendant. This means he would be well-known and well respected. His Mars would help him in terms of hard work. At the same time his Mars proved that he was simply an orphan so he turned to Buddhism. His Jupiter happen to be one of the highest point which certainly testifies to the fact that his intelligence was high whereas his Venus shows that he did not crave for any wealth, Saturn as well as Rahu Proved that he did not long for any possession and would live very long. His Majesty King Rama the fourth was well known for his prediction and treatise on astrology. He found that Somdej Toh's birthchart was amazingly good. In fact it would be far more scientific to suggest that the moment of conception would be the time when the influence of the planets would be more significant. King Rama the fourth also put forward his own interpretation for the planets without conflicting with any traditional astrological beliefs. Those who are interested in astrology may also try to interpret their signs according to King Rama the fourth's interpretation, they will be surprised that it is accurate and can explain the psychic nature that sees through to their real inner personality.



Judging from the signs as well as personality and character it is believed that Somdej To had attained a high degree of emlightenment and could perform prescience. Once he was asked in front of a stupa what would be stuck up inside the niche, he answered "Two frogs" and it turned out that the two frogs could not find the way out. The niche was then broken apart to let them go. His life was full of meritorius activities and he had been helping the poor all along. This is why the Thai people do find him a great and respectable monk. Somdej Puttajarn Toh was known to be a sagacious and intelligent monk and yet his conduct was rather eccentric. No one would act the way he did. At one time his disciples quarreled with each other and were about to use violence, if he should stop it, it would be natural but he did otherwise. He simply went to see the disciples bringing along candles and joss-sticks and prostrated himself, gave the disciples a deep bow and said "You all are very great. Allow me to be your simple disciple"

The disciples, upon seeing this, stopped the quarrel right away. Somdej Puttajarn Toh made another bow and said:-"I did not manage well and it's not your fault. Please put the blame on me." Somdej Puttajarn believed in the Buddhist way of conquering anger with non-anger. Once his disciples were playing Takraw, a ball of woven ratten strips. upon learning this incident he went up there with clothing folded upon his head and said "May I join this game." The players immediately stopped playing and there was sense of guilt among them. He often exchanged ideas and opinions with foreign missionaries. Once he was asked where the poles of earth are. He took the missionary to the ground and pointed at it. saying "It is right here". The missionary then asked him how he knew about it. He said the earth is round and if we draw the line across the earth it would simply be here with is another pole.



There had been a saying concerning him that he resided in AYUTTHAYA, came to stay at CHAIYO, grew up in WAT INDRA dad keeps Buddist precepts at WAT RAKHANG, denoting several places where he had lived. He built up Luand Poh To, a hugh image, at Wat INDRA but he passed away before the construction was completed. As for Buddha images that he created, it is believed that he should have known a number of royally sponsored artists or "Chang Sipmoo" who also helped him to design these images. His incantation used as magic spell or charm also came from Sri Lanka or Ceylon. People who chant his incantation are free from any discases and should also be happy with all the praises and blessings. Somdej Puttajarn Toh also translated and adapted the verses from Pali into Thai.

The stories and legends concerning Somdej Puttajarn Toh seem innumerable, especially known to be the king of all little Buddha images. Chao Phrya Srisuriyawongse (Cuang Bunnag) who had been Regent for some 5 years before King Rama the fifth became of age so his duty and work expired. The Regent was then raised to the position of Somdej Chao Phrya Barommahasrisuriya-wongse. However, the legend has it that he might betray the King which had been untrue. Somdej Puttajarn Toh walked with torch lit up during day time and went over to see the Regent asking directly "is it true of not true? If it should be true, i would ask you to stop it right away." The regent, ofcourse, agreed to end such rumor.



Somdej Puttajarn Toh had been very familiar with the Regent who asked him to give sermons from time to time. His sermons were full of examples and stories which today still remain easy for understanding. He was very sagacious and highly intelligent in the sense that he was truly a genius. When King Mongkut ascended to the throne at the age of 69, Somdej Puttajarn Toh was then 81 years old and became Puttajarn, an ecclesiastical title, for 3 years or so. He was then in the autumn of his life and asked a monk called Phra Puttabatpilan (Tad) to be the abbot of the monastery. M.L.Phra Maha Swang and Prom Suddipong drew some 21 scenes of pictures covering Somdej Puttajarn (Toh)'s lifetime based upon the explanation given by 88 years-old Chao Khun Phra Thammatavorn (Chang) as follows:- Once Prince Duang, King of Cambodia, graciously invited him to give a sermon. On the way to his residence, there were many tigers around. So he asked the tigers to take full rest, not harassing the people anymore. He journeyed to the prince's palace on a palanquin instead of being driven by cart led by buffalos or cows since he did not prefer that type of journey.

The sermon was then given to the prince and Cambodian people concerning unity. King Mongkut was pleased with this sermon. Somdej Puttajarn (Toh) decided to buld a monastery called Ketchaiyo. The construction was assisted by King Mongkut and Prince Pinklauo as well as foreign residents such as Indians,Farang,Cambodian,Lao,Mons and Chinese. This monastery become famous and was visited by a large number of people all the time. It had been widely known that Somdej Puttajarn (Toh), former about of Wat Rakhang, and King Rama the fourth who had been a monk also for a long time, had known each other well. When the king ascended to the throne, he would allow the Somdej to do what he liked and always found him a sagacious monk. Once King Rama the fourth held a boat decoration contest where different state agencies sent beautiful boats for the occasion Somdej Puttajarn also came in an ordinary boat, with a monkey staying there.

The King certainly found that the Somdej would never enter the contest since he was a monk who desired no power nor any other worldly things. Thai monks could merely have four pieces of personal belongings and could not amass wealth. Therefore he could never enter a decoration contest. He put the money on the boat to prove that such contest was nonsensical. The King could defrock him since it was in the days of absolute monarchy. In the past he already defrocked Phra Pavana of Thonburi. The King and the Somdej had a very good relationship for over a long time. Once the king graciously gave him a beautiful boat and asked that he should use it to go around giving sermons. But the boat was a big one so the people started calling him Somdej To or Somdej Big.

A couple of years later the Somdej passed away amidst sorrow and despondence among the people . What is most interesting is the legends about him that are still talked about even today.

[ THE MASTER TAUGHT ] YOUR OWN GOOD DEEDS NEVER HAVE BEEN CONDUCT. WHO WILL HELP YOU?

"Son, before you visit any master for blessing. You'll need your own supply for investment. which mean your own good karma to start. When your own is not enough, then you can borrow others help. Otherwise you'll not be able to survive on this nature because the deeds you've done is too much for your own."

"When you've done some good deeds karma, all this go back to those who you borrowed from. And what will left for you? and your next life?[start]. Alway conduct your own good action. Gods and heaven will sure help you"

"Do remember, if it's not the right time. Gods will not be able to help."

"Once it's time, nothing can stop you."

"Do never rush Gods."

"If your own good deeds never have been conduct. Who will help you?"

( This is the famous teaching for thai people, they passed down for generation by Chao khun Nor Wat Thepsirin. With full respect. )

This story said by Somdej Toh when he focus in nimitta ( vision by sitting meditation ): One night Somdej Toh woke up, he have seen a man who weared all white cloths. He is too fascinating to be any mankind or life on earth. In this world with full mystery he've realized with his own wisdom that the man is not human. He asked the mysterious man in the white cloths.

"Honorable sir. As i have meet you in this place. It is truly my good karma and honor. You have visiting my place. By any means i have make mistake or conducted anythong wrong regard the teaching from Lord Buddha. And if it's the case, please advise me to bring up enlightenment.

The God replied. "Tarn Toh. Your conductions here are similar to Phra.Samana Kodhom [Lord Buddha]. Only the way you've planned about amulets. You've planned to make them as memorial for people. Once you have start working, the process must be righteous.

The God continued. "Tarn Toh. You have live within spiritual world, then you should follow law of this nature.[souls society], The consecrate's process to bring up holy items, you'll need a correct way to build the ceremony."

Somdej Toh then replied "Honorable sir, I am open for anyone opinion. If you are willing to help me. Please advise."

The God then have taught on how to build the ceremony, in thai we called "Tevar Bunyad" or "Phromma Bunyad", It's the law of sacred ancients.

Before the God leave from his vision. Somdej Toh have focusing into mindfulness. Somdej Toh asked "Honorable PhraPhrom, what is your name?"

The God then answered."If you need help from me. I am a disciple of Aong Phra Mokalana (one of the first five disciples of Lord Buddha called 'Punjawakee'. I have enlightened during my life time on earth. I was 7 years old. But as i have designed to leave the world before nature time of life, by the cause of lust. I have an anxiety that women will break my precepts in life. I have to stay in Brahmaloka image.If Tarn Toh need help from me, then think of "CHINNABUNCHARA".

Anytimes when Somdej Toh consecrated holy items and amulets in ceremony. The God "CHINNABUNCHARA" alway appeared.

The legend pass down for generations, hundreds of years regards Somdej Phra Puttajarn Toh story. One of the best Thai guru monk who had enlightened many thai/siamnese people and have lessoned in many miraculous ways which none such recordable devices evidence can prove yet. His amulets "PhraSomdej WatRakhang" was called Emperor of Thailand amulets. [txt b.e.2550]

"Those who learn to pray may not fall" Somdej Toh said. "To pray Chinnabunchorn with mindfulness, they bring great protection to the prayer fortune. Can use them to consecrate anythings and any purpose prayer focus in their mind"
