ThIs is a VHTF Somdej
SoomRakang, made and blessed in around mid 2480s by LP Nak, the late
Abbot of Wat Rakang. Materials of the Somdej are
the same formula as of old-version SWRs, and rich fragments of SWRs
were also mixed. These two factors caused its surface and cracks looking like

Frontside & Backside
Two big pieces of
old-version SWR's fragments
can also be seen at the Somdej's edges --please see the above
Average size of Somdej
we are acquainted with is 2.5 X 3.5 cm, but the above the Somdej
SoomRakang is a
little bigger of 2.7 X 4.2 cm.
In the early period
of LP Nak's Somdej creation, big-sized items were often made because a large quantity of SWR's fragments
was easily available
at that time.
The LP Nak Somdej SoomRakang is of VHTF item and very favored by
professionals who have profound knowledge and acute "eagle eyes" on seeking & sourcing
good great amulets.
You may not know that
this is an amulet
hidden in the shirt pocket of some traders & dealers who sell multi-million THB, old-version SWRs or
SBKPs (Somdej BangKhunphroms) !!
The reason is that
they know the absolute
fact that a tiny SWR fragment or even a molecular particle has same
efficacies & properties as of a full, complete, old-version SWR item without any
These traders & dealers are very smart because they pay a little sum of money for an
amulet of multi-million THB equality value !! So why don't we ?!
Absolutely, the LP Nak
Somdej SoomRakang can be used as a substitution to a
very expensive, old-version SWR with same properties and efficacies.
So why pay a very big
amount, hard-earned 5-50 millions THB for an old-version SWR while a
very...very...much cheaper LP Nak Somdej with old-verion SWR
fragments is a best smart option !!
The Somdej has around
70 years age old right now. Thanks to previous owners who really did well
on preservating the item--it's in complete condition !
PROFESSIONAL REVIEW OF THE LP NAK SOMDEJ:
a) It's DooNgai or easy to verify its authenticity.
The Somdej surface is naturally dry & old looking by its high age natural.
The trace of sticky
mixture can also be seen at the Buddha image arm's side. The
sticky-mixture trace is called in Thai amuletological term as "Roi
Ner", it occured while pulling the amulet out of the mold. Such the
sticky trace can also be found on some high-classed, holy powder amulets
such as old-version SWRs, old-version SBKPs, LP Phrakru Mool's Somdejs,
Wat Plaab's amulets, etc.
b) The Somdej is of
big size with materials of SWR formula and richness of old-version SWR fragments
which causes the Somdej having "NuaJaad" look and
looking like an old-version SWR.
NuaJaad--a slightly greasy, shinning look as appearing on the
surface of multi-million THB, old-version SWRs or SBKPs.
c) The Somdej is a professional-class amulet. It's of
complete-conditioned, VHTF item.
The LP Nak Somdej
SoomRakang's properties are broadly covering as of the old-version
SWR, such as life protection, Metta, life & career progress, wealth
& fortune, family harmony, etc.
LP Nak was one of the greatest Gurus of the country since World War
II, contemporarily with many great LPs viz LP Jaad-Wat Bangkrabao,
LP Chong - Wat Natang Nok, LP Kong- Wat Bangkraphom, LP (Y)ie- Wat
Sattaheep, LP Lua-Wat Sao ChaNgok, etc.
LP Nak was invited to
bless the two important amulets, one is Indochine Buddha Chinnaraj
mini statue in B.E.2485 and the other the Phra Leela 25 Buddha
Sattawas in B.E.2500.
LP Nak attained
highest Dhamma; as widely said in among advanced Dhamma-practice
monks that when he was blessing amulets, his meditative power was
emitting very large bright, cold beam covering all amulets before
him--implying great properties for his amulets on Metta and Klaew
LP Nak passed away in B.E.2514 at the age of 87.
