Phra LuangPu Thuad – TaoRit mould
Phra LuangPu Thuad
created by Acarya Tim
The biography of LuangPu Thuad is mentioned in early regional histories of Thailand but his story is mainly the stuff of oral histories. In southern Thailand, tales of the life of this famous monk has been passed on primarily by word of mouth. The story is a mix of many Buddhist elements: early signs, magic, travel, study, meditation, and eventual “sainthood.”
His movements throughout parts of the Southern peninsula constitute a unique path of pilgrimage for many believers.
Many people in Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia believe that amulets created in Luang Pu Thuad’s image hold great protective powers granting safety in times of distress, especially saving the lives of believers from seemingly fatal automobile accidents. Ajahn Tim Dharmataro, abbot of Wat Chang Hai is the pioneer creator of Phra Luang Pu Thuad amulets.
Older, sacred amulets of Luang Pu Thuad are considered priceless and very powerful.
