Pra Pairee Pinas amulet - Wat Boworn


Pra Pairee Pinas is one of Thailand's most famous and revered Buddha statues. The statue was found whilst restoring the temple of Wat Boworn, when they opened another Buddha Statue, and discovered the smaller statue of Pra pairee Pinas hidden within it.

Wat Boworn is the temple where King Rama 9 (Bhumipol Adulyadej) was ordained as a Bhikkhu (Buddhist Monk). The temple made these amulets to restore the Chedi spire of the temple. The series included Pra Somdet and Pra Pairee Pinas, as well as another rather less common and unknown amulet of a person standing with a lotus flower between his hands. The standing amulet is said to represent Prabat Somdej Pra Putta Lerd Hlaa Nopalai (a King of Thailand), as he raised his hands holding a lotus flower in devotion, before the walls of the temple.

Pra pairee Pinas amulets of this edition were made in three materials; Nuea Din Pao (baked clay), Nuea Tong Daeng/Tagua (copper and lead), and Nuea Wan 108 (108 sacred herbs with cement). This amulet is Nuea Din Pao. It has an extremely smooth and silky feel to it, and the details are extremely clear, due to the hardness and shiny texture of Nuea Din Pao.

The front face depicts the likeness of the statue, and the rear side has a sacred Kata in ancient Khom inscibed, which says 

"Iswaa Su - A Sang Wi Su Lo Bu Sa Pu Pa" 

Strangely enough, all amulets from Wat Boworn start off at a relatively economical price, but they increase steadily in value as the years pass by. 5 years can increase the value by up to 5 times over! This amulet has already doubled its price in the amulet stalls since its release one and a half years ago. What i personally find interesting about the Wat Boworn amulets is the fact that although they are not highly priced when released (typical of the royal temples - it would not seem fitting to release overpriced amulets from a temple with Royal connections), they are of the amulets which have the best sacred cement mixture, as well as the best blessing ceremonies too!

What more could one want? A great amulet with fine quality mixture and top master monks performing the blessing.Yet the price is affordable. It is a fact that you don't need to spend a lot of money to get an authentic quality sacred amulet, whose cement will improve and increase in beauty with age. Collectors pay large sums of money for rarities, but if what you are looking for is an authentic amulet ,made in the traditional way with authentic blessings, without having to pay a leg and an arm for it, then this is the kind of amulet i would recommend to you, you won't find better quality at this price anywhere else.
