Takrut LP Jong 12 Dork
A beautiful set of 12 takruts with original cord, blessed by LP Jong, Wat Natangnok, about 50+ years ago
Probabaly the best known of all takruts, instantly recognisable as they are featured in almost every single book ever published about takruts. However this full compliment of 12 with original hanging belt is now very rare, due in most part, to delaers who will often break down these sets to sell the takruts individually for 70.00 – 80.00 USD each.
One of the top 10 great Guru monks of Thailand was undoubtedly Luang Phor Jong of Wat Natangnok, Ayuthaya province.
Luang Phor Jong and another great monk of the province Luang Phor Parn of Wat BangnomKho were close friends each highly respecting the other. In fact they both had the same teacher, Luang Phor Soon of Wat Bangplamoh and Luang Phor Paan of Wat Pikulsokant.
Even though Luang Phor Parn attained extreme levels of knowledge of “Apinya” and “Wipassana”, he still admired Luang Phor Jong and recognised him as a great monk, in fact likening him to a statue of pure gold, such was his worth.
It was believed that Luang Phor Jong had himself attained such a high degree of knowledge in “Patisamphithayan” that he was able to perform many miracles including the ability to transcend time and space
Luang Phor Jong created many well known amulets since the outbreak of WW II. The majority of which are well known for extreme protection from danger, bullets, and bombs etc.
It is also widely known that he did what he could to protect the province and the lives of the innocent by sprinkling sacred sand from a plane onto the land below.
Many miracles were recorded after this event and in particular a very high proportion of unexploded munitions.
Despite the fact that LP Jong passed away many years ago his amulets are still highy sought after and in particular by people from the province of Ayuthya who still recall his virtue and dedication to the province during the time of war. It is for this reason that his amulets attract premium prices and continue to rise.
LP Jong passed away on the 17th February 17th, B.E.2508, at the age of 93.
