LP Parn was born in BE 2368 in Tambon Klong Dan. As a young lad he was accepted as a novice monk at Wat Arun, Bangkok where he studied Dhama and Kom to a reasonable proficiency before returning home to help his parents on the family farm.

At the age of 20 he returned to Wat Arun to be ordained a monk. and studied diligently under many Buddhist preceptors and is known to have excelled in meditation.

At a later date he moved to Wat Bang Hia, Amphur Bang Bo where he continued to study and was noted for his strict adherence to Lord Buddhas Dhama. In fact the Abbot gave him the responsibility of taking care of and educating the young novice monks.

2nd Generation Pims

From this temple he travelled into the surrounding forests and jungles to practice higher level meditation which also presented him the opportunity to learn many occult sciences (witayakom) from some very well known ascetics, including Aakom, Saiyasat (black magic) and Wetmon (incantation/spells) from Ajahn Nan, in short the specialised knowledge with which to create amulets.

Having become proficient and knowledgeable in many disciplines, he was the first choice to take up the position of Abbot at Wat Bang Hia when it became vaccant.

Whilst practicing in the style of an ascetic monk from the austere forest tradition,(Tudong) spending prolonged periods of time in forests and jungles to practice meditation he by chance met Luang Phor Wat Grabok, Rayong province. They jointly decided to go and learn incantations for tiger magic from Ajahn Tee, and also Ajahn Nan both who were widely known as highly proficient in this science.

Tiger Amulet Wat Bang Hia

This in itself was not an easy task as being accepted as a student required that certain tests be passed to determine suitability, tests that involved wild tigers that must be called into the monks presence. In fact Luang Phor Parn passed the test whilst his companion decided that he was not suited and declined to continue finding fame in other sciences.

Luang Phor Parn was described as possessing Miraculous Magic or Aakom Klang due in part to his highly developed meditative powers. In fact it was widely believed that his powers increased exponentially during the period of the waxing moon and he possessed the ability to transfigure taking on the form of a snake.

As he had studied this highly specialised branch of magic he began to use that knowledge to create tiger amulets initially for local villagers

Wat Bang Hia

In former times fresh water tributaries originating from Bpaet Liw would pass  through the jungles that surrounded the temple on their way to the ocean at Samut Prakan. However at high tide the currents would often reverse with salt water salt flowing in land and contaminating fresh water sources. This natural phenomena was the cause severe hardship for many local farmers that depended on water to irtrgate crops. Not only that the irrigation channels  became invested with crocodile.

The temple which sat on a major canal, Klong Baang, was responsible for maintaining an important flood gate. Dissatisfied locals blamed the temple for poor maintenance and used the derogatory term/expression ”hia” or Wat Klong Baang Hia, which lierally translated means something akin to ”Damn Temple”.

In fact in the year BE 2443 the gate failed completely and such was the seriousness of this calamity that it was brought to the attention of King Chulalongkorn who as a resuilt decided to personally visit and inspect the site himself where he remained for three days whilst the repair work was undertaken and to preside over the opening ceremony.

This extended stay presented an opportuinity for the people to express gratitude. Luang Phor Parn created a specially engraved tiger tooth amulet which he offered as a gift to His Majesty.

His Majesty described Luang Phor Parn as an extraordinary monk , a monk that had already been enlightened having reached the status of an arahant

The Tiger Amulet And Its Significance

Luang Phor Parn was was once asked what is the significance of the Tiger Tooth amulet, and in what way it was meanigful. He replied,

”Frequently I would go to the Jungles to pratice meditation, and it was during these times that I encountered many large tigers and often had the opportunity to observe this majestic creature in its natural habitat and in particular its agility, intelligence and last but not least power. I would watch as other animals were seemingly hypnotized by this beast, surrendering to an unseen force.

Through my amulets I impart these characteristics, bringing powerful strength of character, resolution and determination to succeed in accomplishments. In fact the very same traits that dsitinguish the tiger.”


Amongst all of the sacred amulets blessed by Phor Tan mui, his Pitda Nam Mon Kwai amulets are by far the most famous and thought by many to be the most powerful. These amulets were personally blessed by him for years, never asking the assistance of others to help in the sanctification. All the power emanating from these pims is the pure energy of this great monk.

The amulets were made of two particularly auspicious components, namely; Pong Patamang or Patamang powder and quite uniquely, buffaloes’ milk. Phor Tan Mui used the milk as a binding agent for the various sacred powders, in fact in preference to cows milk which he had stated would not provide the durability and strength.

Patamang Powder

Patamang Powder was the most famous of all his sacred powders, just in the same way that for example Pong Prai Guman powder is famously associated with Luang Phor Tim

However this is a very difficult and complicated powder to create, because of numerous spells that must be written with Dinsorpong (Thai chalks) onto a black board, which are then erased and the chalk dust collected.

This was a widely known technique used by LP Toh, Wat Praduchimplee. It takes a considerable amount of time to collect sufficient powder with which to actually create the amulets.

Numerous spells must be chanted to create this powder including

Napagung Pintu
Namo Buddhaya
Mahadum
Ongkarn Uthai
Maha Wai
Maha Mek
Itipiso

Phor Tan Mui is known to have increased this list substantially to ensure the efficacy of his amulets. Also included were spells such as this one in particular called “Ongkarn Prapatamung”.

“Ohm Ongkarn Prapatamung Tung Tair Gumnerd
Mi Sukda Dechochai Yomtoklong Ti Nai Bunlai Nun
Dut Duang Pra Suriyun Lair Mekfon
Dai Sangote Asongkai
Yom Wun Wai Tung Loka”

This sacred spell is been highly respected for the multiple blessings that it would bestow upon the worshipper such as protection from danger, charm and fortune.

Actually documentation notes that this spell in particular when used by a monk can provide the power of invisibility and the power to conquer evil. Having said that this power can only be realized effectively by those that practice strict Dharma.

Sacred Powder

Interestingly these Pra Pitda Nam Mon Kwai amulets were only given to men, for women Phor Tan Mui had created Pra Pratarnporn amulets which he has said would increase fortune and charm

These amulets are now very scarce and sourcing original examples is not easy. Those that do own them generally will not part with such treasured possessions.

Prices of these pims whilst still affordable have been climbing for years.

Phor Tan Mui

Phor Tan Mui is without question one of the most famous monks to have originated from Nakhon Sri Thammarat, the province probably best known for the Jatukam amulets.

A highly respected for his dedication, sacred power and Dhamma. Even the former prime minister, Marshal Plak Pibulsongkram is known to have held him in particular high regard.

He assigned him a special role within Thai society teaching Dharma to those incarcerated, hoping that religious education would assist in the rehabilitation process..

Background

Phor Tan Mui was born on April 4th ,B.E.2442, in Pakpanung District, Nakon Sri Thamarat Province, and was ordained at Wat Paragam Nua, on July 5th, B.E.2462, then aged 20..

He spent an extensive amount of time in pilgrimage in deep jungle to meditate and learn sacred sciences from other monks..

Amongst his many sacred teachers were Ajahn Jerd and Ajahn Sak, two sacred monks of Wat Tum Khaoplu, Chumporn Province, both specialized in high level meditation..

He is also known to have accompanied Luang Phor Song, Wat Jaofa Salaloi, on such extended pilgrimage to several provinces including Prachap Kiri Khan, Petchburi and Rachburi for several years.

Moreover he also learnt sacred Thai traditional medicine and became highly knowledgeable about ancient Thai medicinal plants. Attested by the many people he is known to have cured from a multitude of ailments. Phor Tan Mui would never accept cash donations or indeed any other form of payment. Many of the precious items donated were always immediately donated to charitable causes and those in need. As a monk he observed the moral precepts devoutly, made merit and practiced generosity at every opportunity.

With such high standards of discipline and a pure soul, attention quickly followed. It was obvious to almost anyone that had the opportunity to meet this great monk that he held had no worldly desires only an insatiable determination to help others. It was also clear that what he had learnt as a monk was being applied and practiced to the fullest extent of his ability.

Even today, although having passed away decades ago his spirit is still sought and praised by many of highly respectful visitors to the temple where his body is held on display.

Amulets

Phor Tan Mui had created many kinds of sacred amulets such as Pra Pitda, sacred mouth amulets (luk-om), Pah Yant, Pra Pong (sacred powder amulets), etc. His amulets originated from two temples namely; Wat Paragam Nua and Wat Bang Bucha as he divided his time between the two locations.

Phor Tan Mui passed away on May 22nd, B.E.2535, aged 93 years and having served the Buddhist faith for 73 years


Luang Phor Hok Pims – Wat Tha Kham, Songkhla

I have seen a few accounts of this amulet that claim that LP Hok used the bones from 108 criminals, this is simply nonsense, and clearly the original author either had some difficulty in translation or has a vivid imagination.

Luang Por Hok studied many sacred sciences over a considerable period of time  whilst at the same time collecting and creating many sacred powders.  It was his wish to create a very special series of amulets, to help those that worshipped at his temple and poor villagers.

In B.E.2509, he created his first generation Gradook Pee (ghost powder) amulets which were designed in the form of Pang Leela, or the walking Buddha Image with sacred yant to the back

Luang Phor Hok

The materials he used to create these amulets consisted of

-Gradook Pee or Bones of the dead collected from 108 cemeteries. He limited himself to four corpses per graveyard and only those that had passed away on Saturday and cremated on Tuesday

– Luang Por Hok’s special sacred powder, Pong Wahn

All bones were ground into powder and formed the main bulk of the material to create these amulets. Luang Por Hok had said that he wanted to give those that had departed an opportunity to increase merit by helping those in need, although this was only possible through his ability to control the spirits through Katha Arkom or incantation.

Luang Phor Hok a highly respected monk of Songkla Province received a good deal of welcome assistance from students and villagers to grind the bones to a powder. This was mixed with his own sacred powders that he had collected over decades, specifically for the purpose of creating amulets.

Actually these amulets were hand pressed one at a time by Luang Phor Hok himself. It is generally believed that these amulets offer powerful spiritual guidance and protection and are often associated with charm, luck and fortune.

2nd Generation Pims

Luang Por Hok believed that the souls of the deceased wish to gain merit that could lead to a more desirable rebirth, which in effect would bring them closer to enlightenment. It was for this reason that he created his now famous generation 1 and generation 2  Kradook Pee amulets or Ghost Powder amulets.

The first version amulet was so successful that a high demand existed for more pims and as such the second version was created, the composition of which was identical to that of the first, bones from the deceased and LP Hoks sacred powder Pong Wahn. The 2nd generation pims featured Lord Buddha to the amulet face and scared yant along with the temple name to the reverse.

Luang Phor Suang – The 500 year old monk

Fast becoming an Internationally heard of name, Luang Phu Suang was one of Thailands ‘Ariya Sangha (high Sangha), whose story is timeless. Luang Phu Rit Ratana Choto, the abbot of Wat Chonlapratan, was once asked if he knew Luang Phu Suang from Sri Saket. Luang Phu Rit Answered that he did know him, and that he had known him for a very long time.

He said that as he was making merit building the Dhamma Sala, Luang Phu Suang came to visit. No one saw which direction he arrived from, but when he left, he was seen to walk out to the jungle in front of the temple. This jungle was both thick and large, and was inundated with water from the rains. Luang Phu Suang walked out through the flooded field towards the edge of the jungle. As he walked, a large number of birds and animals were seen to following behind Luang Phu Suang, and then suddenly, he disappeared.

Luang Phu Rit says that to speak of or hear the stories of Luang Phu Suang is like listening to a fairy story, but that in fact, Luang Phu Suang really did exist. Luang Phu Rit says that Luang Phu Suang always looked the same age when he first saw him decades ago, as he did the last time he saw him, and that he does not seem to age the same way as a normal person. Luang Phu Rit says he knows not which temple Luang Phu Suang was at, nor does he know his real age. He tells of the time he first saw Luang Phu Suang,, sat on a wooden shack in the middle of a field on the Khmer side of the Thai Khmer border in Ban Lalom Sadao Khukahant, near Sri Saket.

It was a very dilapidated ‘Gratom’ (wooden shack), whose roof and walls were not really able to stop the wind and rain from entering. On this particular day, Luang Phu Suang was sitting in the Gratom, and an old man with white hair was sitting in attendance, massaging the legs of Luang Phu. Outside the Gratom, were four or five villagers, both male and female. Luang Phu Rit approached Luang Phu Suang (it is unclear in the Thai language Biography, whether LP Rit was a monk or a layman in this time), made prostrations to him, and then asked how old he was *(1).
Luang Phu answered that he had forgotten the past already, and that he had come to be known as Luang Phu Suang. He said that the Luang Phu Suang of legend was not him. It can be interpreted that Luang Phu Suang was giving a Dhamma lesson in showing that one should concentrate on the present and not be concerned with the past, which is gone forever, and cannot be revived.

On the side of the Gratom, there was a large paper kite, which attracted the attention of one of the visitors, who asked one of the locals why the kite was there? The locals explained that Luang Phu Suang liked to fly Kites, and that when it was windy, the local villagers would come to fly their kites in this field, and that Luang Phu would sit and watch, laughing and clapping. If Luang Phu Suang disappeared on one of his leaves of absence, his kite would be missing from the side of the Gratom; if the kite was there, then Luang Phu would also be there, if the kite was gone, then Luang Phu was not there either. When asked why the villagers never saw how Luang Phu Suang would disappear sometimes, the villagers explained that they were only in attendance in the daytime, and that at night, they would all return home, leaving Luang Phu alone in the Gratom. This was when he would take his leave on his various journeys. It was believed that Luang Phu Suang used to fly away through the sky with his kite in the darkness of night.

It is told that Luang Phu Suang also liked to watch ‘Gai Chon’ (cock fights), and that he would often be seen sitting watching such competitions, clapping and cheering the cockerels as they fought. Whenever devotees would seek out Luang Phu, many of them would often ask him for numbers (used for lottery). In many occasions, people would win large amounts of money, using the numbers they received from Luang Phu. Some people would then go and pay respects again to Luang Phu, and donate a large sum of their winnings to him. Sometimes he would take the wad of cash and just throw it into the marshes. In such cases, most people ran over to the spot where he had thrown it to retrieve it, but they were never able to find it again. On other occasions, he would take the money, but would ask to go for a drive in the car of the devotee, and then would throw the money out at poor people on the way.

In the times of the internal war in Cambodia, when many refugees were fleeing to Thailand, it is said that Luang Phu Suang would change into white clothes , and go out to help bring the Cambodian refugees over into safety on the Thai side. Luang Phu Suang would make safe places to cross, and stick a white flag in the ground at the place where the people would be able to cross safely. No one was ever hurt from shooting or bombs whilst crossing in the safe places marked by LP Suang.. After the war, LP Suang returned to stay in his Gratom in the middle of the field in Khukhant. When people visited they would enter the village of Lalom Sadao and ask at the local stores if LP Suang was at the Gratom in the field. If he was there, the villagers would always know, and if not they would say he was away on one of his mysterious voyages. It is believed by many people that Lp Suang is over 500 years old, for which reason ha has a nickname “Lp Suang Ha Roy Pi – Jam Wat Tua Jakrawan” (Lp Suang 500 years old,who resides all over the Universe).

Luang Phu Suang is also known for his rather odd behavior; on one occasion, he was invited to bless a new shop which had opened. Lp Suang performed the chanting ceremony and blessings, then, as he finished, he stood up and hoisted his robe, and proceeded to urinate in front of the shop. The shop owner saw what was happening and quickly rushed to catch the urine, which he then sprayed all over the shop. The shop owner explained later that LP Suangs urine was not warm like that of a normal human, and that it was cool like ice. When the lottery cam out, the winning number was exactly the same as the house number of the shop.

On other occasions, LP Suang was invited to house blessings with other monks from other temples, and, after the ceremony, LP Suang would move to the center of the room and excrete some dung. In most cases the house owner would rush over and lay something under him to catch the excrement, and then spread it out throughout the house! It is said that his dung had a pleasant aroma. It is common knowledge, that LP Suang used to like to hitch lifts with people in their cars, and than no local folk would ever dare to refuse him, for if they did, the car would not start, or start and stop intermittently. He would let them drive him for long distances, then ask to get out at the most unlikely places. Once he would get our of the car and walk a few paces, he would disappear from sight mysteriously. Sometimes, Lp Suang is said to be present at the Gratom in ban Lalom, but is also unpredictably capable of disappearing for long periods of time, and nobody knows where he has disappeared to.
