LP Hock of Wat Thakam

LP Hock of Wat Thakam in Songkhla province was most famous for his 108 criminals' ash Phra Leela amulets created in 2506-2509 (1963-1966). It was one of the most special batch of Leela amulets in Thailand due to its content, and the effectiveness of this Leela amulet is still remembered by all collectors up to this day. The first batch had no inscriptions behind whereas the second batch had some Akaras inscribed behind. LP Hock passed away soon after making the second batch.
