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.

Luang Phu In Khema Taewo, Wat Nong Meg, Surin.

Known as “The Science of Great Charm“, there are still many people who still do not believe that it truly exists. The curiosity and desire to learn by oneself whether or not the magical sciences were genuine was the catalyst for Luang Pu In  as a young man to  study and learn all that he could about the subject of “great charm”. He wanted to know the truth.

Luang Pu In said that “In the past, I wanted women to love and admire me but our household  was so poor no girl was interested.  So I decided to learn charm magic for myself.

At a young age, he was already a master of Wicha Maha Sanaeh (the charm and charm of wealth). As a layman, he enjoys practicing Maha Sanaeh magic. When ordained, because of his interest in making amulets, he sought out great masters to teach him their respective sacred sciences

As a layman, he was most successful in seducing the ladies and flirting with them, which made all the other men in the area jealous. That’s because he has the special Maha Sanaeh wicha. In 2497, he was ordained as a bhikkhu at Sasana Buddha, and continued his journey in search of Wicha Akom, passing through Tudong to Cambodia and staying for nearly ten years to practice and study various Wichas. He specialized in Wicha by Maha Sanaeh, Metta Mahaniyom, Choke Lap, Kaa Khaay.

Luang Pu In said that whilst in Cambodia he studied Wicha from Khmer texts considered the strongest and in particular sciences under the “Kampong Chnoua” line, believed to be the most powerful way to help people succeed in love, enhance kindness, charm and attraction. “Kampong Chanua” is a pure form of  magic and magic spells of the great charm and usually only taught to those with Khmer blood.

One of the many spells he mastered was singing in the leaves and turning them into “Ya Maha Sanaeh” (attraction potion). There are two ways to do this, one is to mix it before casting spells, and the other is to mix it and turn it into oil Nam Man Prai (known as `Nam Man Prai Long Hon`) who has great power in Metta Mahaniyom and Maha Sanaeh. When Luang Phu prepared Nam Man Prai, he first dried the leaves in the sun and then ground them into a powder (some, not all). Most of the time, Luang Phu grinds them by hand. Some of the herbs in the blend include; Prai Ongkachaat. Prai Dam, Prai Jampa and other important medicinal or sacred herbs. Some will be coarsely ground and left to dry, others will be pulverized and dried into powder.

With the ancient Khmer Wicha Gampong Jam and the Wicha Nia Kajia Maha Sanaeh that he mastered, he was also able to create and strengthen the legendary deity Taep Paetch Payatorn, known as one of the most powerful spells. The strongest attraction of all Khmer Charms. Wicha. His knowledge of sacred oils and herbs, along with Wicha Gampong Jam’s secret empowerment and summoning methods, he created amulets and invoked many gods Paetch Payatorn reside in talismans of his irresistible power.

After the dough dries and the mixing ritual begins, “Look Sawaat” is also mixed with the ingredients. Luang Phu then added Nam Man Prai Long Hon to the mix, which turned the sacred Luang Phu powder used in his amulet into an extremely powerful Maha Sanaeh mantra.

It is generally considered that there are four great masters of Charm magic, notably Luang Phor Chuen of Wat Ta Ee who is considered the strongest, closely followed by Luang Phor In. Next would be the owner of the famous sandalwood charm technique that being Luang Pho Koi of Wat Pa Daeng. Last but not least is  Luang Por Pan who posses Karen Khom Wisdom  and regarded by many as the ultimate master monk with  expertise in charm magic. It is unfortunate that LP Chuen has since passed away.
