The closed eyes Buddha, called Phra Pidta in Thai, is a uniquely Thai posture in which the Buddha covers his eyes to see no evil and at times also covers his ears, belly and private parts. Some experts think that this unusual style evolved several hundred years ago to show the Buddha attempting a form of sensory deprivation to assist in attaining Enlightenment, which is a blissful state of pure knowledge leading to Nirvana at death or a release from the cycle of birth and rebirth.
Wat Pra-Ngoen of Nontaburi Province is located on the Talingchun Suphanburi Road, Klong Bangmuang Sub-district of Bang Yai.
Luang Phor Kram was the former abbot of the temple, along with a number of other temples including Wat Kampang and Wat Saluktai.
Luang Phor Kram is known to have been a student of many famous monks such as Luang Phor Boon of Wat Klangbangkaew, Nakon Pathom Province and Luang Phor Parn of Wat Bangnomko, Ayudhaya Province.
His amulets are highly distinctive, stylised and very beautiful making most of them instantly recognisable. Although he passed away over 40 years ago these amulets are still in great demand and are highly collectible.
