In his last year he became ill, and after a lifetime of smoking cigs he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, which was deemed inoperable. Luang Phor then spent his remaining time passing the necessary jobs to the other monks, and then he settled to meditate through his own death. He attained Arahant hood (a state where one is totally detached from the material world), which is akin to becoming a Buddhist Saint, on November 14th, 2545 (2002) at 05.14 hours, and passed away the next day. As he had used Prai throughout the time he was a monk, he left permission for his body to be used in support of his temple, Wat Sanomlao.
These were released 5 years ago by his Temple after a huge ceremony with important monks. It is a Dao that is made of a mix of silver and platinum and it carries some of the bone powder of Luang Phor Pina himself. Phra Ajarn Chalerm asked me to add real rubies, which is what I did and it is now an important item, the rubies make the difference. This addition is nothing new as Luang Phor's top items always carried real gems but to find these Dao at all is now almost impossible. The Dao is his Star amulet, with an 8 pointed star on one side and a five pointed star on the other. There is a total of 15 real rubies in these, 7 x 2mm and 8 x 2.8mm and the real rubies makes the difference rather than lad made ones because true beauty needs flaws.
This simple amulet is for those who want a direct line to the great Luang Phor Pina. Having them can bring anything you want because he is still helping people in return for merit. Like any of his personal works, he likes offerings of red bull and cigarettes because he virtually lived on both. It will come with the kata to him and there are only a handful of these amulets.
It measures a nudge over 1.65" and comes with the kata to him, which is a highly unusual idea that he got in trouble for, along with using dead nuns in his works.
It comes with the original temple case.

A Relic of Luang Phor Pina - a Silver, Platinum and Ruby Dao + his remains
In his last year he became ill, and after a lifetime of smoking cigs he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, which was deemed inoperable. Luang Phor then spent his remaining time passing the necessary jobs to the other monks, and then he settled to meditate through his own death. He attained Arahant hood (a state where one is totally detached from the material world), which is akin to becoming a Buddhist Saint, on November 13th, 2545 (2002) at 05.14 hours, and passed away the next day.
Luang Phor Pina is thought of as one of Thailand’s greatest meditation Masters, having learned from perhaps the greatest Master of all time, Luang Pu Man. He was said to be able to reach the higher spiritual realms and was taught Wicha for the 42 years he was a forest monk. The teaching passed on by his Kruba Ajarns and his potent Samathi (focus) enabled him to create what are considered to be some of the most powerful amulets ever made. Luang Phor Pina spent years meditating on death with the dead bodies he encouraged all monks to see to truly understand the nature of being human. It may be due to this fact that within the famous amulets by LP Pina he often included a high percentage of flesh from supernatural corpses, which included some nuns that died in accidents. This actually became his most famous work, a series of amulets that included Mae Nua Hom - the lady of the sweet smelling flesh, and yes, it smells sweet. Having been lucky enough to sit in rooms of his amulets there is often the distinctive smell of death, but with the Mae Nua Hom it was different. There are some Wicha that is only used when a corpse already smells sweet, and this may be the case due the spiritual purity of the nuns who died, but Luang Phor’s blessing was also believed to be able to arrest the rotting process. Even with the amulets that did smell of death, the rotting seemed very slow or the piece would have disintegrated long ago.
