The Difference between Mekaphat and Mekasit Part 2: Experts Craftsmen

 

In Part 1, we explored the materials composition of both Mekaphat

and Mekasit
and their supernatural qualities. In Part 2, we will explore who were the expert craftsmen of such amulets.

 

Famous monks who made Mekaphat and Mekasit

Though the process of creating Mekaphat and Mekasit varies from school to school and master to master, there are a few common threads that run through myriad methods. For instance, they are almost always exclusively classified as “twin metals” in the texts describing how to create them. A prospective craftsman is required to learn and become proficient in the skills required to make both substances, or none at all.

A slew of monks have been recognised as master craftsmen of Mekaphat and Mekasit amulets, but a select few stand head and shoulder above the rest.

1. Luang Pu Nak of Wat Huay Jorakae

A master monk, highly skilled in the mystical art of alchemy. Mixing, moulding, and pouring entirely on his own to craft amulets in the image of the Buddha, he was known for his immaculate Mekaphat amulets that were beautifully cast, with no visible seams and bubbles. His amulets are some of the most prized examples of the genre, with a shiny, black and perfectly polished surface free from imperfections.

His ‘Phra Pidta Nur Mekaphat

’ amulets are widely regarded as some of the finest examples of Mekaphat amulets ever made, rich in Kongkrapan Chatree and Maha Ut. They are also renowned for their elevated Metta Mahaniyom and Choke Larp.

2. Luang Phor Thap of Wat Anongkharam

Yet another acclaimed exponent of alchemy and the esoteric arts. His advanced sorcery resulted in a Mekasit known for its particularly beautiful, glossy finish. His Mekasit amulets are renowned for being able to reverse ill-fortune. Even Luang Pu Suk of Wat Pak Khlong Makham Thao

, himself a master, sought Luang Phor Thap out to study under him, and exchange alchemical knowledge. Luang Phor Thap is widely regarded as the greatest Mekasit craftsman who ever lived.

3. Luang Pu Boon of Wat Klang Bang Kaew

One of the top ten most legendary monks of Thailand (see our article on the subject here). He was one of the foremost experts of alchemy in his time, and even the chief monk Phra Sangkharaj Pae of Wat Suthat

studied the art under him. It is said that he inherited the knowledge of making Mekaphat from Luang Pu Nak of Wat Huay Jorakae
, the progenitor of this knowledge. His Mekaphat amulets possess a deep colour and lustre comparable to those of Luang Pu Nak of Wat Huay Jorakae.

4. Luang Pu Suk of Wat Pak Khlong Makham Thao

Another of the top ten most legendary monks in Thailand. His amulets, regardless of their status or scarcity, command top dollar in the market.

He studied the art of Alchemy under the tutelage of many teachers. He inherited the knowledge of Mekasit from Luang Phor Thap of Wat Anongkharam

, who is regarded as the ultimate pioneer of Mekasit creation. Some of his Mekasit amulets are very expensive, such as ‘Phra Luang Pu Suk Pimprapamonthon Nur Mekasit
’, often drawing bids of a million Baht or more.

5. Luang Phor Imm of Wat Hua Khao

A master of both sorcery and meditation, he was a contemporary of Luang Pu Suk of Wat Pak Khlong Makham Thao and Luang Pu Boon of Wat Klang Bang Kaew, two very famous monks of the day. They were friends and shared knowledge with each other. It is unclear if Luang Phor Imm learnt the art of Mekaphat from Luang Phor Suk, or if they developed and refined the wiccha together. Luang Phor Imm had also exchanged knowledge with Luang Yiam of Wat Nang.

LP Imm pioneered the art of crafting mystical rings through wicha. His skills at making these rings was renowned, especially his Mekaphat ring, known for having Kongkrapan Chatree which renders wearers invulnerable to fangs and tusks of wild beasts. It is said that if anyone gets a ring from Luang Phor Imm, it is considered very lucky because he created very few pieces.
