This is virtually pritine Gai Phayanak Buddha Amulet by Luang Phor Pina from 1990, which is rare now but it does have a slight casting fault. Each side of the amulet shows a seated Buddha and an animal below him, a chicken on one side (Gai) and a type of Buddhist snake on the other (Phayanak).
There were many simple Buddha amulets produced by Luang Phor during the early 90's as he was at the height of his fame but this is a rare one, although in my opinion although they all carry a similar potency. These are Luang Phor's Phuttakhun Amulets using pure Buddha magic although he also made many with a crazy prai content too.
It is a common Thai practice to bury amulets in the grounds of a temple to absorb the earth element and become stronger over the years as they are in consecrated grounds. This is where the recent glut of fine Buddhist amulet by LP Pina has come from and they have funded the renovation of the temple. The simplicity of it is fantastic and it feels beautiful because of it absorbing the energy of this sacred place for so long.
This is made from earths and a herbal content, cast and then baked and sometimes coloured to either sell or give away to his devotees. It was amazing how much Luang Phor gave away because his temple was in a poor area and he wanted the people to benefit from his gifts.
Luang Phor Pina is my spiritual hero.
A fine item from a bygone age that has been cased in silver and measures 1.9".
A beautiful piece that has been blessed by a Master magician.
The Gai Phayanak Buddha Amulet in silver by Luang Phor Pina 1990
Luang Phor Pina was a disciple of the legendary Ajarn Man and followed a life of both spiritual and magical dedication, producing some of the wildest prai amulets that can be found. His Buddha amulets are also very special and his blessings are renowned for their potency.
