Luang Por Derm was one of the greatest master monks in Thai Buddhist Amulet making history, and his original Loi Ongk Statuettes are priceless treasures, only worn by the riches millionaires, but the devotees of Luang Por Derm believe that just his image is sacred with or without blessing, and carries the same power as any of his ancient and priceless amulets, for the faith and devotion of the devotee, brings blessings from Luang Por Derm through direct transmission through Guru Worship.
Luang Por Derm was very famous for his Mitmor Spirit Knives, and carved amulets in ivory and wood, as well as his hand inscribed Pha Yant, and of course, the Roop Lor.

Luang Por Derm was Born on Wednesday 6 February 2403 BE and Died on Tuesday 22 June 2494 BE. He was one of the Greatest Masters of Thai Buddhist History, whose amulets, and famous ‘Mitmor’ ritual spirit knives are legendary around the whole wide world, for their authentic power, and Master Class Status.
This great Master and Abbot of Wat Nong Po, is believed to have chosen to be born on Earth in the village of Nong Po, to lighten the sufferings of Buddhist People, and to bestow them with Blessings to lead them on their way towards Happiness, and Alleviate their Sufferings, and Poverty.The Wicha of Luang Por Derm is continued to this day through his Looksit of the various Master Lineages.
His carved Roop Lor, Krueang Rang (Talismans), ivory, and wooden amulets are rare items, for they were made by individual Artisans who were Initiated and had received the Wicha, and ‘Korb Kroo’ Ritual Empowerment as permission from Luang Por Derm himself. Only such Lineage Master Initiates were allowed to perform carving or knife forging for Luang Por Derm, and even to this day after his passing, all the Posthumous Editions of amulets which derive from Masters who are Initiates of Luang Por Derm, have to use only amulets and Artisanry which have been made by an Initiated Artisan.
