Wua Tanu Bucha Statue (Ongk Kroo) – Luang Por Jerd

Wua Tanu (‘Ongk Kroo’ version with 3 takrut) – 3 inches wide front leg span, 4 inches wide horns, 6.5 inches long, 4 inches high. Buddhist/animist bucha statue to ward off black magic, afford protection and attract wealth (and gambling success).


Wua Tanu bucha statue from Luang Por Jerd comes as a special and highly expected edition of the most exquisite fine masterpiece amulets and bucha statues that Luang Por has ever made. The Wua Tanu is a powerful guardian and bringer of sustenance, as well as a very aggressive protector against black magic, ill wishers, and thieves. The statue measures 4.5 inches wide at the horns, (3 inches leg span), and is the ‘Pim B’ model of two models in this size. The temple states this is a 3 inch bucha, which we find confusing seeing as the span between the horns is 4.5 inches, in comparison to the space between the front hooves which is 3 inches. The widest part of the statue is however, 4 inches.

This ‘Pim A’ Wua Tanu bucha statue, is endowed with three golden takrut spells inserted in muan sarn powders and krang putsa resin paste of the belly. ‘Prakam graduk kwai’ (Buffalo horn rosary), is tied around the neck. The forehead of the Wua Tanu has a gold leaf final Blessing. Instilled with powerful anti black magic and protective spells to prevent thieves, demons, sorcery and curses from entering the household or vicinity around them.

If you are a luxury model collector, then this is the model you seek, the ‘Ongk Kroo’ version. The ongk kroo comes with a rosary around its neck, and hand inscription. The standard ‘Pim B Pised’ model differs in that it has embossed Agkhara and yant, whereas this ongk kroo has hand engraved inscription from Luang Por using engraving tool. The hand inscription was performed during the Puttapisek blessing ceremony.

The horns span 4 inches wide.

These ‘Pim A Ongk Kroo’ masterpiece versions of the Wua Tanu have a hand inscribed prayer rosary made from bone around their necks, and gold leaf blessing on the forehead. A powerful protector against black magic and house invadors, as well as a strong attractor of wealth and treasures.

The bucha statues were made available as ‘Wua Tanu’ (holy bull), or as ‘Kwai Tanu’ (sacred buffalo). There are eight different versions in all, which were made in two different sizes, in 3 inch wide or 5 inch wide bucha statues.

The buffalo is 6 inches long and 4 inches high at the nape of the neck

Each type and size has an ongk kroo version and a standard version, in each of the two sizes. the ongk kroo masterpiece versions in both 3 inch and 5 inch sizes (of both Wua Tanu and Kwai Tanu), have 3 takrut (3K) inserted. Whereas the standard versions have 1 takrut and ‘phaa saam see’ (tricolored ribbons), instead of the rosary with hand inscription.

The span between the hooves measures 3 inches wide, with the horn span being 4.5 inches.

In addition, these ongk kroo versions have and rosary necklace, with hand inscription on the surface, instead of three colored ribbons.

The muan sarn in the belly contains a host of sacred and sorcerous ingredients to empower and increase the potency and power of the Wua Tanu, amongs the most important ingredients were; ‘pong hua jai’ Wua Tanu (heart of the Wua Tanu powders), krang putsa dtaay prai (‘putsa’ paste from a putsa tree that died as a prai, earths from seven cemeteries, earth from seven giant termite mounds, crab sand pellets, broken pieces of temple wall bricks from seven temples, and 108 herbs, woods and pollens.

Released in a very special edition of amulets from Luang Por Jerd, which included some extremely luxurious lockets with the image of Luang Por Jerd on the front, and a thick sacred powder filling in the rear face of the amulet, with a Pra Sivali loi ongk statuette and 108 or 56 takrut spells inserted into the muan sarn base formula.

108 statues were made in Ongk Kroo version

The standard versions of the Wua Tanu (and Kwai Tanu), have one takrut insert in the belly instead of the three takrut found in this ongk kroo verison. The outer surface of the standard versions of the statues have embossed cast iron yant, and Khom Agkhara in 3D, instead of the hand inscription given to the ongk kroo versions during the blessing ceremony.

Both versions have recieved so much attention to detail and fine quality chanuan muan sarn (metallic artifact metals) and pong muan sarn (sacred powders), with the empowerments and blessings of a legendery monk of the calibre of Luang Por Jerd, who is the direct looksit and apprentice in magic to Luang Por Noi (famed for his Pra Rahu coconut shell amulets), of Wat Sri Sa Tong. Luang Por is also a prime apprenticed looksit of Luang Por Noi of Wat Dhamma Sala as well, from whom he learned another large number of wicha.

The purpose of this edition was to raise funds for the building of a ‘taewa sathaan’ (deity shrine) with a large statue of Pra Pikanes (Ganesha) sitting on a pair of gold and a silver treasure bees as his throne.

The edition included 2 models of lockets with Pra Sivali statuette, gemstones and 108 or 56 takrut spell inserts. Two different models (jumbo and plod nee) of Pra Pid Ta powder amulets were issued, also with either 108 or 56 takrut and a treasure bee in the back face.

Some ritual dagger septres with two faced Taw Waes Suwan asura deva handles (excellent for making holy water for blessings and banishings), and of course these Wua Tanu bucha statues, and small portable loi ongk Wua and Kwai Tanu amulets were also made.

Luang Por Jerd has applied the powerful and authentic wicha of his mentor, Luang Por Noi of Wat Sri Sa Tong, to empower and bless this edition of amulets and bucha statues which we find to be of the hghest quality and has had authentic empowerment.

Bucha Method

Place the Wua Tanu on a ‘pan kroo’ (prayer tray) or small altar. Offer water to drink (do not let it ever go dry). On holy days and Buddhist festivals offer dry grass or hay.

Above is an example of the pan kroo, which can be golden or silver, and is available as an added option when ordering. Use the selection tickboxes to add a pan kroo tray if you wish, and we will send you the bucha statue with its own tray for placement.
