Sai Pradoo (School of Pradoo) - LP Glan, Ajarn Heng, LP Sie, LP Doo

Sai Pradoo is well known for wicha Saiyasart for a long time. Originate from pre-war master LP Glan (Wat Phayat, Ayuthya). LP Glan used to win over other master guru in meditation and concentration competition which made him well known and last time any monk that were keen to learn Wicha saiyasart would have to go to Sai Pradoo.

Many people know about Wat sakae due to its phra phrom. But not many know that Wat Sakae has the lineage from Sai pradoo. Wat Sakae is known in thailand for its Phrom. A top famous master for this is Ajarn Heng, a senior disciple of LP Glan, Wat phayat, Ayuthya.

In 2480s, Ajarn Heng designed the first 3-dimensioned , 4 faced buddha on a 2 dimensional platform. And it is an instant hit with many guru monk today still following this design.

LP Sie and Ajarn Heng had the same master, which was LP Glan. Both learned Wicha under this great guru. LP Sie was junior to Ajarn Heng and later on learned the making of 4-face buddha under Ajarn Heng. In fact, most of Ajarn Heng's phrom which cost > 500k THB now was jarned by LP Sie. And LP Sie was in most ceremony helping out with the making and consecration ceremony. After Ajarn Heng passed away in 2503, LP Sie took over and produced phrom in similar design and also other design currently famous. Refer to my other post on LP Sie's phrom.

LP Doo of Wat Sakae is another master monk of Phra Phrom. He used to be a wicha saiyasart practitioner before fully into Dhamma and meditation. Master is well-known for phrom making using olden days Ajarn heng method and also pert loke which many claims to be effective as he is one of the the rare one that can communicate with LP Thuat directly.

Phra Wat Koh Zhan

Sharing 2 pieces of Phra Wat Koh Zhan. This was described in earlier post before. These two pieces were the best condition so far that i came across for the past 10 years. It is rare to have such good condition pieces.

Phra Wat koh zhan is famous for calming one's mind. Show you the way and helping one to clear his mind for better decision making. In fact, Wat paknum has similar effect too according to fellow collector that wears wat paknum.

I have friend that wear Wat koh Zhan and told me the same thing. Great for metta, calming once mind and ask for direction  in life.

Top 5 Rein Lor Benjapakee - Somdej Rasami LP Suk Wat Makhamtao (2 Certs)

LP Suk of Wat makham Tao (1847 - 1934) was perhaps the greatest Wicha master of all time. Top 10 monks renowned for wicha. Many of LP Suk amulets are in benjapakee category in Thailand costing millions. 

He was famous for his power of transformation. Ability to perform magic and transform things into different form. For instance, from garbage become rabbit. The most famous legend was the one where he transformed the elephants belongs to some arrogant merchant into house flies and another where he transformed a man into a crocodile. The latter story was reported widely in Thailand and many witness saw the event. It is no wonder   LP Suk was widely known also as master monk of Chao Phraya River.

LP Suk has many famous disciple. One of which is the son of king Rama 5, prince Champion. The father of thai navy. Owning one piece of LP Suk amulets or takrut has been a dream of many collectors including myself of course :)
