Luang Phor Pina is my spiritual hero and this amulet was made to commemorate him includes his death in 2002. The front shows the classic image of Luang Phor as he meditated through his own death and the back holds an earth and prai mix into which has been pressed his Phra Sut amulet and a lightning stone to bring the power of nature. It is an exquisite amulet that can no longer be found and is from my old collection.
Luang Phor Pina was a tough man, utterly fearless and he made some of the best prai amulets of recent decades. For his Tudong, which is when a monk will walk the wilds and test their Samathi, he walked to India, and this was in the 60's through the jungles and dangerous places at that time. After a long life in support of his devotees and building 31 temples, he was finally diagnosed with terminal lung cancerin 2001 and he settled down to sort out his affairs and then meditate through his own death, which is the famous image on the front of this large enamel locket. Word quickly spread about this and the fact that he was sat next to a date on a board that foresaw the time of his death and he was announced as an Arahant (a Buddhist Saint) shortly before his passing.
One of his instructions was that his body should be kept and used in support of his temple, Wat Sanomlao and the large statues there contain part of him. A huge one has now been made, which will carry most of his remaining skeleton because others there already contain his leg bones.
The amulet provides connection to the Old Master Monk and brings great fortune, protection from malicious forces and from all harm. It is the last I have been able to find and have had this for a couple of years. A classic of its type. When I wear mine the doors open in Thailand as they love people who understand these pieces and the access to the community that they grant.
Measures 2.15" in its nice silver case and comes with the kata to him.
Sathu! Sathu! Sathu!
