Phra Pidta Maha Larp with Por Pahn (พ) behind, Luang Phor Yen, Wat Saparian, Chainat Province (B.E.2536).

Luang Phor Yen live a long life from B.E.2445 to B.E.2539 and passed away at the age of 94 years old. LP Yen was ordained at the age of 21 and it was said that he further his higher Dhamma studies and vicha at Wat Rakang Temple (Bangkok). 


One day, he met an old monk who visited Wat Rakang and needed some help, seeing the old monk looked helpless, the young LP Yen offered to assist selflessly and in return the old monk asked young LP Yen what he wanted most? LP Yen replied that he wanted to rebuild his hometown village temple, Wat Saparian in Chainat Province. 

The old monk handed over a Goat look-alike item called Por Pahn Khao Maethi (พ) to young LP Yen and at the same time handed over to LP Yen the artistry and wicha of making this Por Pahn (พ), and told young LP Yen that this Por Pahn (พ) could help him rebuild Wat Saparian. LP Yen started his efforts to rebuild Wat Saparian in B.E.2507 and completed it in B.E.2522 and these Por Pahn (พ) were given out to devotees who had helped and donated to the cause. It was later said that the old monk who taught LP Yen the art of making this Por Pahn (พ) is none other than the legendary Luang Pu Thep Lord Udon.

龙婆烟(瓦萨帕联)是一位备受泰国人尊敬的一位高僧,以制做一种名为“波”的圣物而闻名。 据说是一位天神传授于龙婆烟(与阿赞农的那莱邦路符管极为相似),利用香支与白线绑成像骆驼或绵羊形状的圣物。后期,师傅也利用了圣粉或铜料制作,有些还印在金属牌上与圣物等。 

只要有“波”的佛牌圣物一经过龙婆烟开光后,效果都相同。配戴者如有守5戒,或时常行善者,都能得到祖先和天神的庇佑,在遇到任何危险或不好的状况都能迎刃而解,顺利过关。 龙婆烟的“波”是用白线和香支所捆绑的,看似像骆驼或绵羊的形状,但制作“波”用的白线和香支相当讲究与慎选。

白线是经过龙婆烟长年累月念经所用,而香支是泰国的皇室成员和达官贵人或大法会拜佛所用过的香支, 以便配戴者能够藉此得到无上的福气与贵气。 也有一些说法龙婆烟曾经发愿,凡有缘的配戴龙婆烟的"波”的信徒如诚心祈求,一定会“愿望成真”。

帕比达佛 ( Phra Pidta ) 或又称为掩面佛,可以帮助佩戴者把一些不利的事、物等阻挡在体外,使之不能进入身体影响人们的心灵与运气。同时,在挡灾避险,避小人,招人缘贵人运,及提升自身运气与财运等都有一定的灵验,更可以调整人的磁场,使之正气随
身。
