Kamphangphet

Phra is the image of the Buddha representing his descent from the Tavatimsha Heaven, to which he had risen in order to preach to his mother. Normally it is in the form of a figure that seems to have come to a momentary pause mid-stride, one heel raised while the other foot is firmly planted on the ground, one hand lifted in a gesture of giving instruction or dispelling fear, while the other arm is naturally at its side. This is also known as Abbhaya mudra, the mudra of no fear. In Theravada Buddhism, a mudra is a symbolic gesture or symbol. This gesture of Phra Leela means dispelling of fear, peace, protection as well as benevolence.

Kamphangphet

This is sometimes called the Buddha of Fortune. It was said that when these amulets were found, an inscription “Poverty will never fall on those who possesses this amulet ” was written in the chedi. 

This group actually comprises of 2 different kinds of amulets, Phra Leela, the walking Buddha in an oblong shape and Phra SomKor in a semi round shape, both from Kamphengphet province. Several types of Kamphangphet tablets are amongst the most sought after by collectors.

Phra Somkor normally comes in either the shape of a thumbnail, or an oval shape commonly referred to as cake amulets (kanom). They are estimated to have been made some 600 years ago. Today Phra Somkor appears to be slightly more popular than Phra Leela, as it is smaller and easier to wear when wearing a full set of BenjaPakee.
