Phor Than Kong Famous BE 2505 Taolit........part 1

Featuring my personal collection of the famous Be 2505 Taolit of Phor Than Kong.  These taolit were made and blessed by Phor Than Kong ( Tok Raja ) himself.  These Phor Than Kong's taolit were then distributed by late Chau Khun Chan during Phor Than Kong cremations day. According to my grandpa, Thamboon         ( renting price ) for the BE 2505 Taolit was just RM 5 per piece.

 

During the cremation ceremony, this Phor Than Kong's  BE 2505 Taolit were put inside the baht ( armbowl ) with a donation box beside the baht. At those time my grandpa said he had just RM 10 in his pocket and he had only rented those 2 pieces ( as attached photos ).

The first feature taolit face, legs and hand were worn out due to the traditional way of casing ( wrapped it in a yellow or red clothe ) and this taolit originally wore by grandpa himself. He said that, he will wear this taolit when he wanna Tham Withi ( bomoh tingy ) or travel for a long distance. The second feature taolit was still in 90 % perfect, but still a bit worn out here and there because of open casing.

Some amulet expert said that......WORN OUT a bit, here and there were ONE  of  the crucial aspects that indicate the originality of the amulets. If the amulets were released / made some 50 years ago but still in 100 % perfect condition then you need to be worried ! Altho there's a case of 100 % perfection but it's very very rare indeed. Before making any purchasing / renting / exchanging, you should ask in depth and consult the expert to verify.


 

Below is the redo batch of the famous Taolit of Phor Than Kong by Chau Khun Mit. This batch of taolit can be used as a substitution to the highly sought after of Phor Than Kong BE 2505 ( as above ). FYI, all Wat Uttamaram amulets has gone thru a rigid and complicated processes and ceremony of making and of course has been blessed accordingly to the Phor Than Kong's secret and katha.

Some novice collectors were cheated and rented this new batch of  taolit as  the old BE 2505 Taolit. Some irresponsible amulet sellers / collectors simply dipped this new batch taolit into special blended chemical and even hand scratch the taolit just to make it worn out and look older.

How to differentiate the original BE 2505 taolit and the imitate one ? As for me ( novice and inexperienced in this amulets world ), the simplest way to differentiaite  the original BE 2505 Taolit is..... in creating BE 2505 Taolit, Phor Than Kong used the selected YELLOW BRASS, while the redo batch taolit was made of RED BRASS. Used the sharp object and scratch any part of your taolit ( normally the base / bottom ) and you will see the result....whether in yellow or red brass / copper !

But now in this technology advanced, it's hard to determine the amulets via scratch and see. The amulets con men even smarter that we ever thought. Sometime it's beyond our thinking. they're willing to do and spend thousand perhaps to copy cat and produce the fake amulets.  In conclusion......to determine your BE 2505, kindly consult the expert please !

Nowadays, amulets from Wat Uttamaram ( especially Phra Pidta Phakhawan ) are highly sought after for it efficacious to ward off ill-fortune and to provide protection to the wearer, it been said that amulets from Wat Uttamaram also superb in auspicious luck fetching. This piece of Tok Raja Taolit redo batch from the Phor Than Kong's BE 2505 block / mould was rented from Wat Uttamaram in early B.E. 2544. The thamboon for the newly made taolit is RM 50 per piece.

 
Due it popularity, this older batch taolit made by Chau Khun Mit was out of stock. Recently, Wat Uttamaram abbot, Than boon had released a new batch of Tok Raja Taolit. The renting price ( thamboon ) for this new made BE 2552 Taolit is RM 89. This batch of taolit comes with a box ( first time ever ! )


In a nutshell, it doesn't matter if you are just able to own this new batch of BE 2505 Phor Than Kong's Taolit. It's still a superb taolit. The good and efficacious amulets doesn't depend on its prices, year of making, and its rareness. As my grandpa said......it's all depend on your faith and believe ! Even the RM 10 one, if you get it from wat, thamboon it with your heart, believe and have faith in Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha, the CHEAP amulet that you have rented are much better than the propaganda, expensive, fake and immitate famous amulet !

Tok Raja - The Real Meaning from the Expert Views !

Below article was extracted from the essay entitled "Jampi Siam Lawan Jampi Melayu". The essay was written by Dr. Muhammed Yusoff Ismail, the expert in Buddhisme.


The main purpose of this posting is none other than to share the idea of the real meaning of "TOK RAJA" phrase as stated in my previous post. Just read and browse thru the extract and get the whole idea on TOK Raja phrase thru the eyes of the expert.


"..............Sebenarnya bidang agama Buddha dan masyarakat minoriti Siam menjadi minat saya semenjak tahun 1977 (MA dan PhD saya masing-masingnya dari Monash University dan Australian National University adalah berkenaan dengan orang Siam di Kelantan dan agama Buddha; tesis kedoktoran saya diasaskan kepada kerja lapangan selama dua tahun tinggal bersama dengan bikkhu Siam di biara di Kelantan).


Saya juga telah menulis beberapa makalah dan sebuah buku berkenaan dengan organisasi sosial agama Buddha di Kelantan, juga tentang ilmu perbomohan Siam dalam konteks penerimaan orang Melayu. Artikel tersebut bertajuk Pengaruh Siam dan Buddha terhadap sistem kepercayaan tradisional orang Melayu Kelantan. (Akademika 49 (Julai) 1996: 23-37).

Dalam semua penulisan yang diterbitkan oleh saya telah menggunakan istilah bikkhu untuk menggantikan `sami’ kerana istilah bikkhu adalah lebih tepat. Dari segi etimologinya istilah tersebut berasal daripada perkataan Pali bhikkhati bermakna `pemberian’ atau `sedekah’ kerana gaya hidup golongan bikkhu ialah menerima `sedekah’ daripada orang awam; tidak berumah tangga annagaram Ñ bahkan mereka tidak boleh berkahwin, kalau berkahwin mesti bercerai dahulu sebelum boleh ditahbiskan menjadi bikkhu. Istilah bikkhu juga digunakan dengan meluas di Indonesia kerana ada penduduk pribumi Indonesia, terutama di bahagian tertentu Pulau Jawa menganut agama Buddha.

Istilah `sami’ yang digunakan oleh DBP sebenarnya kurang tepat. Sami adalah terjemahan daripada istilah Hindu yang bermakna priest (yang boleh berkahwin dan yang mempunyai cara hidup yang jauh berbeza daripada gaya hidup seorang bikkhu). Bikkhu diterjemahkan kepada monk dalam bahasa Inggeris dan ini selari dengan gaya hidup mereka yang celibate iaitu tidak berkahwin dan tinggal dalam kawasan yang berjauhan dengan penduduk awam.

Istilah `kuil’ juga ada sedikit kesilapan dalam penggunaan umumnya, kerana istilah ini lebih merujuk kepada temple, sedangkan tempat tinggal bikkhu dipanggil vihara dalam bahasa Pali. Dalam bahasa Indonesia `biara’ digunakan. Saya menggunakan istilah `biara’ dalam penulisan saya supaya dapat dibezakan daripada `kuil’. Biasanya di kuil tidak ada agamawan yang bermastautin di sana seperti bikkhu yang menetap di biara. Persatuan Buddhis Malaysia juga menggunakan istilah bikkhu dan `biara’ secara meluas.

Istilah tok ca adalah istilah tidak formal yang biasa digunakan oleh orang Melayu untuk merujuk golongan bikkhu. Selain tok ca, istilah `tok raja’ juga digunakan di Kelantan. `Tok raja’ merupakan terjemahan daripada perkataan phra. Istilah phra digunakan dengan meluas oleh orang Siam untuk merujuk kepada bikkhu. Orang Siam sendiri tidak menggunakan istilah tok ca atau `tok raja’ sebagai ganti nama kedua kepada bikkhu. Sebaliknya mereka biasa-nya menggunakan istilah Phor Luang, Than atau Khun kepada bikkhu bergantung kepada kedudukan mereka dalam hierarki Sangha dan kelulusan dari segi tahap pengajian agama (gred Barian, `nak tham’ 1 hingga 3)........".

Dr. Mohammed Yusoff Ismail, pakar penyelidik agama Buddha dari Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

POSTS rePOST !

Sorry for the inconvenient caused ! Many bloggers keep asking me why my recent posts were incomplete and almost all the posts were left with ....???.... Well, as i said before, those blanks were purposely left to the expert to leave his comments on Kelantan's stuff. They commented on me and even scolded me with a swear / harsh words by saying that i'm such a **** and good at bluffing people. Until now none of them drop by and share their thought, experiences and expertise ! So, now we know that...who are the real **** and good at bluffing. Sorry no heart and hard feeling.

Great Kee Pheung

Sharing with the bloggers, especially the Thai Amulets Die Hard the Great Real Kee Pheung from rak Kelantan ( Kelantan state ) by our late Phor Than Kong ( Tok Raja ) of Wat Uttamaram. Again, this kee pheung was inherited from my grandpa. Just safe keep it or just bring in together by putting it inside my sling bag. Dun dare to use it ! Featuring the broken wax casing, very very old wax casing indeed. Such a special view of kee pheung with a piece of khata akhom paper, written khata akhom and folded kradat wau. Kee Pheung closed-up pic. For the first time after a long period of times. ( since 1997 i guess ). The kradat wau was taken out from the wax just for the viewing purposes. Superb ! That's the word that i can say to describe this kee pheung. Featuring the dried and blacken colour of the kee pheung due to the ages. Besides the dried wax, something that will stumble you are the dried betel leaf and chewed betel nuts remaining mixed with the kee pheung. Folded kradat wau with faded khata akhom. No hard feeling ! sadhu ! sadhu ! wie.sukhihotu 09 !

Tigress's Claw

Featuring another sacred collection of mine. Tigress's claw. This tigress's claw was secured from the right tigress's toe. This claw was inserted with small copper rolled takrut, its fur and khata akhom were inscribed al over the claw.

This tigress's claw was made by my grandpa for me in year 1993. Just wore it for awhile before safe keeping it as i couldn't bare the power of this claw. ( Posses of great bravery power ! ). Sometimes, will turn to hot temper !. No one dare to talk or even to approach you. So, just keep it. Dun dare to wear it without any purposes.

This female tiger was shot by the villager in Jeli (near to orang asli settlement - POS Kuala Long ) around early 1990. This female tiger was shot after Perhilitan attempts to trap this injured tigress failed. This tigress went AMOK because she was badly injured by the trap set by the illegal poacher. The villager has to take her down because she had attacked one the rubber-tapper because she cannot prey for her own food ! Pitty !

" Phar Yant Khan Barn "

Featuring the "Phar Yant Khan Barn" ( Yant from from the robes to protect the owner's resident / house ). These yants were made by Phor Than Daeng,the late abbot of Wat Phikulthong, Terbak, Tumpat. Kelantan. These yants were made in early 80's. I'm lucky enough to inherited these superb phar yant from my mum, as my beloved mum was quite closed to Phor Than Daeng, my mum said, Than Daeng gave her these phar yant personally.

These yants were a superb tool to be used to protect the owner house / premise. This yant can be hung on the top of the main door and back door frames. According to Phor Than Daeng, For the better result and effect, this yant should be hung at 4 corners / directions of the house. He said, when this phar yant were hung. Its will protect our house from fire and break in. He added that,

"whenever you wanna to move out from your house, the first thing that you have to remove and bring together to your new house is this phar yant "
