After the ceremony was completed and during the process of fine polishing the batch of Phra Kring / Phra Chaiwat Roon “Buddho”, Luang Pu Toh passed away peacefully on 5th March, B.E. 2524. After the polishing was completed for the entire batch, Luang Phor Thong Yoo personally blessed the amulets again all by himself. When Wat Pradoochimplee organised a grand ceremony to consecrate Luang Pu Toh’s full size statue which the King had participated personally in the pouring of the gold, Phrakru Viroj Kittikhun (the successor to Luang Pu Toh) brought along this batch of Phra Kring / Phra Chaiwat to the ceremony. The Supreme Monk of the Highest Office in Thailand Somdej Phra Sangkaraj Yannasangvorn presided over the ceremony and Luang Phor Thong Yoo was participating in the consecration ceremony as well.
