Ajarn Suea Blesses Lek Nam Phi Phrakham Beads.

Ajarn Suea Blesses Lek Nam Phi Phrakham Beads - Ajarn Suea & Sheer Zed

I’ve produced a piece of electronic music which contains the sacred and ancient ritual of Ajarn Suea blessing Lek Nam Phi Phrakham Beads. This particular ritual is from my second pilgrimage to Thailand with Jenx of the superb The Thai Occult books which you can read about in full with photos here on my blog. A life changing experience to say the least.

It has been an honour and privilege to record Ajarn Suea performing this ancient and mystical ceremony. Lek Nam Phi, is a legendary magnetic substance that has been used for magickal swords and Mit Mhor (a ritual knife) for centuries in Thailand. This substance it is said brings protection to the bearer and other sublime qualities.


There are different kata (mantra) for good fortune and protection, for windfall luck and for changing bad luck to good. I hope you enjoy this magickal moment where Ajarn Suea, one of the many fine and excellent Ajarns in Chiang Mai, conducted this ritual from his samnak (the workplace of an Ajarn). In a realm of chaos Ajarn Suea created deep calm.

This track also includes the local ambience from the UDEE Cozy Bed & Breakfast from where I was staying, which had a variety of beautiful birds, a water feature and insects. To be in Ajarn Suea’s presence while he performed this ancient ritual was awe inspiring.

The track can be heard below unedited. It has been mastered by Loz Gill at Fat As Funk.

Wishing you all happiness, peace and good fortune.
