Kruba Wang : Pha Yant Mah Sep Nang

Continuing our series of love amulets I have pleasure in introducing one of the most powerful love amulets ever created.

This sacred Pha Yant is an incredible 38 x 21nches, all hand written and coloured by
Kruba Wang Promsayno, Abbot of Wat BanDen, Tak Province, is acclaimed and respected for this highly specialized and truly unique Love/Charm cloth known as Pha Yant Mah Sep Nang, the sacred-charm cloth amulets.

Indeed it is widely accepted that his yant was the prototype for all others that have followed since. He created these from the year BE 2509 onwards.

This Pha Yant is respected for many attributes but particularly for increasing sex appeal and converting enemies into friends.

There have been many designs incorporated into this Pha Yant over the years, including amongst others, a male angel closely by two female angels, A tiger giving milk to a cow and a cat giving milk to a rat.

Clearly the last two images are associated with an enemy that can become a friend.

Some of the most common themes include a stallion straddled beneath by a young maiden and that of an Ox inseminating a young female. Both obviously synonymous with the power of Sex appeal, very powerful and highly potent symbols of sexual prowess and masculinity,,,(but not meant to be taken literally)

The majority of Pha Yant are also filled with sacred spells hand written to increase the power of the cloth amulet.

All these Pha Yant were created in strict accordance with ancient sciences and as such these were not created from ordinary cloth. In fact they were made from the shrouds typically used to cover the deceased prior to cremation.

According to the Thai belief, the spirit of those that die may possibly depart the cadaver and possess those that may attempt to remove the cloth.

The sacred monk employed many very powerful spells to control these spirits ensuring that the departed soul would become a positive force for the good of helping worshippers of the sacred cloth yants or protected by the ghosts, not harmed.

Apart from that the shrouds other materials were used to create these amulets such as the cloth used to bind the wrists of the dead known as “Pha Mut Tarsung”.

(Note: Mut Tarsung is actually a Thai sacred ceremony to control the souls of the dead prior to the funeral and cremation. There is very strong belief that once deceased the soul remains in close proximity to the body)

Today relatively few monks create this type of charm amulet because the arcane knowledge is slowly dying as each generation passes.

These Pha Yant are believed by many even today to possess miraculous power and rate amongst the most powerful of all love charms.

Luang Phor Tim : Wat LaHanRai

Luang Phor Tim was born in Ban Hua Tunnttabuon, Tambon Laharn, Ampher Bannkaii, Jungwat Rayong on the 16th June BE 2422 in the year of the Rabbit.

He was named Tim, and his family name was Ngamsii. At the age of 17 his father, Kheh, sent to Tan Phor Singh to study, returning home at the age of 19 and was ordained as a monk at Wat Thatkaow on the 7th June BE 2499.

He was ordained by Phrakru Kaow, Archan Singh and Archan Kehh and was given the religious name of Issaliko. After spending a year in Wat Thatkaow, he retreated in the forest for a period of three years, after which he went to Wat Narmathom in Chengwat Chonburi for two years.

Luang Phor Tim learned Wijja (magic) with Ajahan Lod, Ajahn Lem and Ajahn Saii. He also studied with his Uncle Luang Phor Song Thao of Wat Kongchin. It was from this uncle that Luang phor Tim inherited a book of Wicha and Arkom. Luang Phor Tim became the Abbot of Wat Lahanrai where he was a strict and diligent practioner of the Dhamma.

He was known to be a very good monk and possessed few worldly materials. In the hut where he stayed, he only had a pillow and a mat with no electricity. He lived a simple life. He passed away on the 18th October BE 2518 having spent 72 years in the Sangha.

Phra Khun Paen Guman Plaai is one of the most famous amulets created by Luang Phor Tim of Wat Lahanrai. His amulets are very popular and expensive, but for good reason.

A popular account has been well publicized around the internet. This is an updated and somewhat more accurate version.

Phra Khun Paen Pong Plaai Guman of Luang Phor Tim Isarigo, a senior monk of Wat Lahanrai, Rayong province, is respected as one of the most sacred amulets consecrated in modern times.

A genuine Phra Khun Paen Guman Plaai amulet is probably the hardest to find, and fakes abound everywhere. This amulet is well proven in Metta Mahaniyom, Metta, Mahahsaneh, business success and almost all that you wish to do.

The actual methods used to create this amulet follow the ancient traditional ways. Only a few guru monks are known this century to be able to create such an amulet, namely Luang Phor Tim himself, and Luang Phor Tae of Wat Sahm Ngam.

The most popular series of the Phra Khun Paen Pong Plaai Guman amulets are known as the first series (often called “the first block”) containing both Pim Yai and Pim Lek, some with sacred takruts and others without.

It is generally believed that Luang Phor Tim had asked a disciple to make the amulets for him and on a daily basis he would bring newly made amulets to the temple and then Luang Phor Tim would gradually recite the sacred spell for each and every amulet.

Indeed it was recorded that 30-40 of the Pim Yai amulets and around 100-200 of the Pim Lek amulets were brought to him daily.

The disciple responsible for making the amulets was known to have stated that only a single mould was created for both the Pim Lek and The Pim Yai amulets. Luang Phor Tim did not make further moulds and as such it’s highly likely that only a single series of these amulets were ever created.

Many dealers may claim to possess amulets that have originated from different series, but be warned you are most likely being deceived.

One of the reasons that such a low quantity of these amulets were produced was no doubt due to the difficulty and danger associated in production. As stated previously it was well known amongst experts of the black magic sciences that only a few monks possessed the arcane knowledge required to produce such an amulet.

If lesser persons attempted such a process it is highly likely that they would themselves become possessed with demonic spirits or harmed in some way. Luang Phor Tae of Wat Sam Nagm was the only other living monk who possessed the knowledge.

Mr. Lap Choicharoen, a close disciple of Luang Phor Tim had said that he was instructed to locate the corpse of a pregnant woman who had passed the cremation ceremony on a Tuesday.

Furthermore he was to bring the burnt head bone of the dead foetus to Luang Phor Tim. This was required in order to create the sacred powders used in the preparation of the Phra Khun Paen Pong Plaai Guman amulets.

Luang Phor Tim chanted a special black magic spell or Katha for one week in order to control the soul and also prevent the spirit departing from the Plaai Guman.

Once completed, his disciple was instructed to pound and grind the material into very fine powder, which he commenced to do. It was not long however that he became somewhat disturbed by sparks emanating from the mortar. He had to burn incense and ask for forgiveness before this phenomena abated.

Luang Phor Tim took the Plaai Guman powder and mixed it with a number of other sacred powders including, Itijeaepattamung powder, Jindahmanee powder, Prawai and 108 different herbs and sedges. The mixture was chanted for days on end before being pressed into the moulds.

The Pim Yai amulet is 3.5 cm in length and 2cm in width. The amulet face features Buddha sitting in Samadhi, to his left and right are two Nang Kwak in prayer.

On the reverse is the famous Luang Phor Tim Yant Har, representing five previous Buddha’s. Certain Pim Yai, mostly the Neua Khao versions, have a pair of takruts inserted and a layer of gold paint applied.

A total of 2,000 pieces were created and chanted, some with and some without the takruts.

Once his disciple questioned Luang Phor Tim on the reason why he chose to use the skull of a dead child in the process. He was answered

"When we plant a tree, we want to eat the fruits quickly. This is similar to wearing an amulet. We want the amulet to provide merit and protection. The Phra Khun Paen Guman Plaai amulet will provide merit from Lord Buddha and the power and protection will come from the Guman Plaai"

The Pim Lek is slightly smaller in dimension being 2cm in height and 1cm in width. The amulet face features Buddha sitting in the full lotus position, below which is a sleeping Guman Thong. To the left and right are two Nang Kwak, believed to impart Metta Mahahsene (loving kindness). The reverse of the amulet once again features the 5 Yant inscription.

A total of 5,000 pieces were created with 20 pieces made with Wahn Mahahseneh and Dtoktorng powders. These powders are considered special and generally difficult to find. Clearly these versions of the amulet, being the rarest, are by far the most expensive (generally yellow in colour).

The colour of the amulets varies depending on the final mixes of the scared powders used, and the varying degrees of pressure used in the moulding process.

Particular amulets when viewed under magnification even show signs of their origin, often containing fingernails and hair.

The Plaai Guman was also added to other batches of amulets, namely; Phra Nangphya, Phra Plaai Buar, Phra Pitda, Phra Kring Chinabahnchorn and Phra Somdej. In the case of the Phra Kring amulet the material was added to the base.

Originally Luang Phor Tim gave the Pim Yai amulets to his male devotees and the Pim Lek amulet to female devotees.

Luang Por Chong : Wat NaTangNok

One of the top 10 great Guru monks of Thailand was undoubtedly Luang Phor Chong of Wat NaTangNok Temple, BangSai district, Ayuthaya province.

He passed away on the Buddhist important MaKhaBuCha day of February 17th, B.E.2508, at the age of 93.

Luang Phor Chong and Luang Phor Parn of Wat BangNomKho were close friends and respected each others high Dhamma practice.. They had the same teachers viz LP Soon of Wat BangPlaMoh and LP Paan of Wat PikulSokant.

Even though Luang Phor Parn reached extremely high miraculous knowledges of "Apinya" and "Wipassana", he still admired Luang Phor Chong and recognised him as a great monk.

Once in the evening Luang Phor Chong was taking a rest at the pier in front of his temple, a small group of men rowed across the canal. After tying a boat rope to a pier hook, one said unrespectably to Luang Phor Chong, "Luang Phor, would you guard my boat because I was told that there are many thieves around here."

The old Luang Phor Chong said slowly and mercifully to that man," Alright, I'll guard your boat as mine...don't worry." The group of men came back to the pier at around midnight, they saw Luang Phor Chong still sat alone at the pier. "Wow, how great it is, you're still sitting here for so many hours, I thank you for guarding my boat," said a man. "You ordered me to guard your boat, I did as you said," Luang Phor Chong said slowly to the man.

But at the evening of the next day, the men came to Luang Phor Chong's Kuti(monk's house) with flowers, incenses and candles on their hands. They had paid obeisance to Luang Phor Chong and said " I come here to apologize for ordering you to guard my boat, I have been told that the you are Luang Phor Chong, so please forgive all of us for doing a great sin, please grant us your apology." " Huh, ordered me and I did it for you's no sin .....from now on remind yourself do not order any monk as your servant," said Luang Phor Chong.

He also taught them a short brief of Buddha's Dhamma. All the men listened quietly and wept, then they pay obeisance with full respect to Luang Phor Chong's legs.

Luang Phor Chong was also a great donor. Any temple troubled with lacking of Kutis, he would order his monk disciples dismantle them and brought to the lacking temple. Even when thieves came into his temple to steal valuble and rare items, Luang Phor Chong knew and asked them to get them items instead. Yes, he gave stuffs to thieves but never forgot to taught them that stealing monk's stuffs was a great sin.

Many thieves gave up stealing by his teachings. Luang Phor Parn of Wat BangNomKho admired Luang Phor Chong to all his disciples that he was like a gold monk statue, and that a monk of this kind one should never beg anything from him because he would give everything that was begged for.

Whenever Laung Phor Parn performed any religious ritual at his temple, he would invite Luang Phor Chong to join. Once Luang Phor Parn urged his close monk disciple to go by a motor boat to invite Luang Phor Chong to join a ritual , but Luang Phor Chong told the monk to go back in advance and he would go by himself later. As soon as the monk had come back and reported to Luang Phor Parn that Luang Phor Chong would come later, Luang Phor Parn laughed mildly and pointed to Luang Phor Chong who was sitting right there!! How did he come with a short time? It's many miles distance between the two temples, if going by walking it would take a few hours.

It was recorded that Luang Phor Chong reached the highest knowledge of "PatiSamPhiThaYan" which covered highest ability to perform miracle of all kinds. Whoever reaches this state will have comprehensive knowledges over all Tri Pitaka automatically and could rush to anywhere in a short time.

Luang Phor Chong created many kinds of amulets since World War II, such as medals, small statues, ivory-tusk Rajasihas, metal Ta Pian fish , sacred jackets, etc. His amulets are very good for warding off dangers of all kinds, while his Ta Pian fish is good for fortune fetching.

Ayudhaya, an ancient city of Thailand was established around 700 years ago, and just like other provinces of the country experienced the devastation of World War II that destroyed the lives and property of countless people.

It is said Ayudhaya were more fortunate than many other provinces because legend has it that some senior holy monks used their magic power as protection against the bombs.

It was well known amongst the locals of Ayudhaya that during World War II, Luang Phor Chong had tried to protect the province and the lives of the innocent by sprinkling his sacred sand from a plane onto the land below. After which many miracles were recorded particularly the unusually high proportion of unexploded bombs.

Luang Phor Chong was a senior monk at Wat NaTangNok who was quite prominent in creating various kinds of sacred things, apart from the sacred sands, he also created Takruts, Prapong, Pha Yants, etc., and all of his amulets were famous for protecting people from bullets, bombs, accidents and other kinds of danger.

Though Luang Phor Chong has passed away for several years many locals of Ayudhaya still recall his virtues and dedication to the province during the war. It is for this reason that his amulets attract premium prices which continually rise.

Mr.Berm Bangsai, an amulet expert of Ayudhaya province said that although Luang Por Chong was an expert in supernatural power, he had never told any one else.

"Everyday he would peacefully remain in his temple and scarcely talk to others, but people knew of his great power after wearing his scared amulets for protection. His amulet were in great demand by experts and worshippers alike especially for protection from bullets."

Many of Luang Por CHong's amulets have become very famous such as Rian Na Yai amulets which are currently priced around 100,000 baht /each.

The last series of his amulets was called Rian Mangklayu which Luang Phor Chong had accumulated all of his magic power for the last time to create before he passed away, and nowadays they also priced at around 100,000 baht each.

About the series of Rian Mangklayu amulets, Mr.Berm had reiterated that he believed that this series was the best of Luang Por Chong's amulets.

"Because he took so long time to recite his magic spells in order to transfer all of his magic power into the amulets.", he said.

Apart from that Luang Phor Chong also created this series when he was quite old and had amassed a great wealth of experiences in creating sacred amulets.

Luang Por Mee : Wat MunWiChai

Luang Por Mee of Wat MunWiChai, Ayutthaya province was born in BE 2455. He was a disciple of the great guru monk - Luang Por Chong of Wat NaTangNok, a temple very near to Wat MunWichai. Luang Por Mee's amulets are known for there 'Metha Maha Li Om'.

Because of more than thousand years of Buddhism establishment in Thailand, many magic stories of senior monks were recorded, and of course Luang Por Parn of Wat BangNomkho, Ayudhaya province, was one of the most famous legends.

That allured not only ordinary people to deeply respect and believe in Luang Por Parn, but even many other monks also believed in him and tried to seek an opportunity to be his followers, for any one who can succeed in learning and practicing Luang Por Parn magical science will be highly respected by the general public in Thailand.

Anyway, just a few of them were really successful to learn and receive all those magical science from Luang Por Parn, and one of them was Luang Por Mee who had devoted all his life to learn everything from Luang Por Parn.

Starting from learning general things such as teaching Dharma for local people and using some wild grass to cure diseased people. Those steps might be boresome and many had decided to fade away, because they thought it’s too difficult and impossible for them to learn all the precious science from Luang Por Parn.

But for Luang Por Mee, nothing was impossible for him, he was dare enough to devote even his life for Luang Por Parn, so why must he be afraid of anything else?

Such decisive mind really pushed Luang Por Mee to walk ahead and ahead through all difficulties, until he had reached an important step that led him to the magic science of Luang Por Parn.

The step was to learn a magical science called “Asupa-gamadhan”, this science is not only difficult to learn but also very much awful to all people, that made many leave the scene unsuccessfully.

Asupa means corpse, and gamadhan means high-level concentration practicing, therefore the learners have to spend months or years staying with the dead to consider the 5 Khuntha which are:
  1. Rupa, or surroundings those can be seen with human eyes.
  2. Vetana, or receiving of sadness and happiness including with no feeling (which’s called U-beka).
  3. San-ya, or memory and recognition.
  4. Sang-kara, or emotions which divided into two types, one is good and merciful emotion, another is bad and wicked emotion.
  5. Vin-yana, or feelings such as feel cold, feel hot, feel hungry, feel thirsty, etc..
The purpose of practicing the science is to realize the truth of human beings that is the main step to be enlightened in the future.

Apart from practiced all those mentioned above, Luang Por Mee also learned many of Luang Por Parn’s magical spells, and those spells are really powerful for creating magical things, including amulets.

After he accomplished all the learning, Luang Por Mee had traveled to many places and eventually settled at Wat Marawichai, Ayudhaya province, where he had used all the magical science of Luang Por Parn to help lots of people.

That’s why Luang Por Mee was praised as one of the most distinguished disciples of Luang Por Parn, and his amulets were so much trustful as the magic things to dispel all evils.

A well known account of Luang Phor Mee

An Ajahn of Luang Phor Pern was assisting a villager who was under the influence of a black magic spell. As a consequence of his lack of experience and power the effects of that black magic were passed to the Ajarn.

Luang Phor Pern himself could not exorcise the demonic forces and had to seek guidance from Luang Phor Mee at Wat MunWiChai.

Lunag Phor Mee performed sacred rituals to remove the dark forces. During this process the Ajarn felt great discomfort and passed nails during a visit to the bathroom. He immediately knew that the effects of the spell had been lifted.

It was apparent that Luang Phor Mee possessed the requisite high levels of wisdom and dharma, and that day's events became widespread news.

Luang Phor Parn : Wat BangNomKho

Luang Por Parn Sunantoe Officialy known as Pra Kroo Wiharagijjanugarn, was born in 1875 (BE 2418.), and was the youngest son of Mr. Aaj and Mrs. Im Sutawongs. After his birth, he received the nickname of "Parn", due to the red birthmark on the little finger of his left hand, which was seen as an unusual trait. Luang Phor Parn received Ordination as a Bikkhu* on the First of April 1895 (BE 2438).

Luang Phor Parn is worshiped as one of the top 10 greatest guru monks of present-day Thailand. He was the closest disciple of Luang Phor Niam Wat Noi, Suphanburi, and also a disciple of Luang Phor Nong Wat Klong Madarn. His two great teachers passed away with their bodies undecayed. When Luang Phor Parn passed away in B.E.2480, his body was also undecayed as same as his teachers.

In 1932, five years before he passed away, he had announced to all his disciples the date and time of his death. His precognition was quite clear and exactly correct, he passed away on the date and time he had foretold. Luang Phor Parn was a meditative guru monk and also had magical knowledge. On Buddhist Dhamma, it was recorded that he reached the great six knowledge of miracle and he possesses knowledge on precognition, out-of-body ability, mind detecting, ability to do comprehensive paranormal phenomena, etc.

Apart from this, he also possesses the highest state of Wipassana or knowledge of mind cleaning to stop next rebirth. It was his great Dhamma practicing that had cleaned and "distilled" his inner body (astral body) to crystal-like state which changed his body's cells immortal. Many great guru monks in Thailand hinted their Dhamma levels to their disciples this way.

Luang Phor Parn's amulets have marked long-time uncountable records in warding off dangers of all kinds. And it's great for making holy water for healing illness that modern physician could not do anything with it. Luang Phor Parn's amulets are unique from any other guru monks' with the Buddha image sitting on a carrier creature, i.e. Garuda, Hanuman, porcupine, fish, cock and bird.

Once Luang Phor Parn told his disciples that his amulets had been blessed through the Lent period of three months, it's long time more than enough to charge Buddha's power into amulets capable of warding off dangers of all kinds. He said that if they were blessed for 3 years, the Garuda and the bird on the amulet would fly out.

Luang Phor Parn's amulets are very popular among Thai amulets users and collectors because of their frequent miraculous phenomena both recorded and unrecorded.

Chao Khun Nor : Wat DhepSiRin

Dhan Chao Khun Nor (CKN) was born on Saturday, 5th Febuary BE2440 and was the eldest in the family of 5 siblings. He was among the first batch of students at the Official University of Kingdom Siam, now known as Chulalongkorn University. After completing his studies, Chao Khun Nor became an officer in the King's Palace, then ruled by the 6th King of Thailand. He became the closest attendant to the King and he moved to the King's chamber and attended to the King's daily needs. After the death of the 6th King, CKN was devastated. He left the palace in BE2468.

His parents wanted him to get married with a lady teacher after seeing CKN so sad over the death of the King. However, before anything could be firmed up, CKN told his parents that he wanted to be ordained.

CKN ordained on 23th March BE2468 at Wat Thepsirintahwaht, a day before the 6th King was cremated. He became a monk as tum boon (giving merit) for the 6th King. CKN was a strict vegetarian who consumed only 1 meal a day and decided never to leave the monkhood. He was ordained by Somdej Phra Putta Koshacharn (Charoen), who was also his preceptor. Phra Putwiriyaaigon, the abbot of Wat Sommanatwihahn and Phra Udon Seelahkon Wat DhepSiRin were the Dhamma teachers.


It is widely believed that CKN could accurately predict the future by looking at finger & palm prints. When the villagers got wind of that, all of them flocked to the temple asking for him to enlighten them on their future but were declined. Despite that, many people continued to visit him very often even though they know that they will most probably go back empty handed. They all came for an assortment of reasons ranging from offering presents, to
seek guidance about their problems and to ask him about their futures. He was very uncomfortable and sad with all this.

When the villagers presented things to him, he advised them to bring it to other monks as he strictly observed the 227 provisions of moral precepts. He also mentioned that one would similarly accumulate merits when giving offerings to other monks. This made the villagers unhappy & felt that he looked down on them. They people brought the matter up to Somdej Phra Phutta Koshacharn (Charoen).

When Somdej Phra Phutta Koshacharn heard this, he asked CKN about this matter. CKN explained that the reason he did not accept the things or attendance from the villagers is because he was ordained for the purpose of tum boon for the 6th King. Besides that, he also needed to maintain good concentration in order to study the teachings of Buddha. In order to succeed, he needed to have no connections to the outside world. All the people who came to visit him brought along the troubles of the world, which adversely affected his concentration. When Somdej Phra Phutta Koshacharn heard his reasons, he sympathized and agreed with him.

As CKN had strictly observed the 227 precepts, he did not accept any form of offerings from the villagers. The room in which he lived was very empty and consisted of only the basic necessities. There was even no electric lighting. He does all his reading in the day. When CKN went back to his room, he would lock the door and stay inside. No one ever knew what he did in his room and he never came out to receive guests. He never accepted anything from anyone with the exception of his nephew who would bring vegetarian food from his mother’s house. He uses most of his time for insight development.

In the temple, they placed some skeletons of dead people to aid the monks in the development of their insight. The intention was to remind the monks that the female body would eventually resemble this ugly state so that they will refrain from sex and impure thoughts as well as to reinforce the rule of impermanence. LP Parn of Wat Bang Nom Kho Ayutthaya also practiced in such a manner.


It is a daily routine for CKN to walk back to the monk’s residence. There were 2 things that were significantly different with him. Firstly, he did not wear any slippers like the villagers and walked around barefooted. The second and most remarkable thing was that he always walked on tip-toes and his heels never touched the ground. No one knows why he walked like that but it was assumed that it was a kind exercise for his leg muscles. Before stepping into the monk’s residence, he would wash his feet in a basin and dry them.

A village was hit by a dreaded disease and one of the villagers was instructed to bring a bottle to CKN to ask for some holy water to try to cure his fellow villagers but was
declined. The villager had no idea what to do and how to get holy water from CKN to appease the villagers. Out of desperation, he decided to take the water from the basin used for washing CKN's feet and brought it back to his place to give to the sick. Nobody knew the origins of the water and what it was used for.

When the sick people drank the water which they thought was holy water given by CKN, all of them were miraculously cured. This greatly puzzled the man who brought the water.

When this news leaked out (gossip is a fearful thing) people who heard the news all rushed towards Wat DhepSiRin to ask CKN for this special holy water but he denied having given any to anyone much to their disappointment. When the villagers heard CKN’s reply, they were all very confused as to where the holy water came from.

The monk staying next to CKN couldn’t stand it anymore as more and more people flocked to the temple and decided to clarify to the villagers once and for all that CKN had never given any holy water to anyone. However, there was one man who came to beg for it but was declined. He also witnessed the same man taking the water from CKN's feet washing basin but at that time, he did not know what the man was doing. CKN was also aware of it.

When the origins of the “holy water” was established, all the villages rushed to take water from the basin. Some waited around for it to be filled up & immediately emptied the basin.

This made it a very hectic job for the person responsible for topping up the basin as he had to do it numerous times a day. Finally, the basin was placed in CKN’s room to put a stop to this.


There were reports of strange incidents happening when CKN made incantations. On the fateful day of Saturday, 25th April BE2513, a photographer was assigned to take photographs of him consecrating a batch of amulets and was busy snapping pictures of the long and elaborate process until it was finished. When the pictures were sent for processing, there was something strange and remarkable about a picture in which CKN was sprinkling holy water on the
amulets. The wooden brush that was used to sprinkle holy water emitted white light from its tip. There were many people who were present at the ceremony but the light was not seen by anyone there. It only showed up on the picture. Everyone was amazed as they could not find any logical explanation for this. However, everyone agreed that it could not have been caused by the actual physical sprinkling of holy water itself.

There was another strange incident on Saturday, 5th December BE2513. There was a big ceremony at Wat DhepSiRin & many people came to witness the event. CKN announced that it was going to be the last time he was going to make incantations for the blessing of amulets. In a photograph, the flames from the candles which were lined up directly in front of the principle Buddha statue were “swaying” as if there was a strong wind blowing. However, all the windows and doors were shut during that time and there was no wind at all. The flames should have been completely still. Everyone who was at the ceremony were astonished when the picture was shown. This particular picture was taken when CKN was making incantations in front of the principal Buddha image in a temple and Dhan Chao Khun Udomsarasophon was blessing the amulets with holy water.

Based on the pictorial evidence taken during the ceremonies, there was widespread belief that the strange incidents were the result of CKN’s high level of attainment.


Many people and all his students strongly believed that CKN had completed the highest levels of insight development and may have attained the level of Arahant. They derived their
conclusion from his performance and his thought invoking ways when he speaks and delivers his speeches.

One evening, after CKN finished praying, he waited for Dhan Chao Khun Udom and warned him about an impending misfortune and told him to be careful in his journeys. Chao Khun Udom Sarasophom was going to build a new building at Wang Kajom Temple at Nakronnayok. During the journey, an accident occurred and the car in which CK Udom was travelling in overturned. However, he only sustained minor injuries and only had to stay in the hospital for a few days for observations. According to the people who saw the wrecked car, they were absolutely astonished the CK Udom & the driver could have survived the accident. It was later mentioned that the driver was wearing a CKN amulet.

On another occasion, CKN was having a discussion with his students on Cambodia and he mentioned that that trouble will befall on the people of Cambodia as there will be a revolution in a few days time.

All the students were puzzled when they heard that and although some of them disagreed, they did not say it out loud. A few days later, it was published in the newspapers that a revolution had started in Cambodia to expel Chao Narodom Sridhanu. His students were in shock and awe at how he could have known this in advance. Thus, they realized that that CKN was able to see the future in his meditations.

On another occasion during the rainy season, there was a new monk staying at the monk’s residence and resided right next to CKN's room. The walls of the rooms were all made of solid concrete.

One day, friends of the new monk came to visit him at the residence. This new monk took out a violin and was about to play it when CKN opened his window and told the monk’s friend who was sitting down in front of his friend’s room to please tell the new monk that this thing (violin) that he is holding is “improper” for a monk and politely asked for him to put in away. Those words shocked the people around him as the walls were made of solid concrete & CKN could not have seen the violin from the outside. Besides, the new monk had never even played the violin before that day.

From the incidents above which were experienced by different people at different times, there is widespread belief that CKN had achieved a very high level of spiritual attainment and was able to know & read people's minds.


The person who took care of CKN was his nephew, Khun Kosol Pattamasonthon. He was the son of Mrs. Louen Pattamasonthon, CKN’s sister.

CKN had some skin infections so one day, CKN requested Khun Kosol to go to the Pramongkoutkouw Hospital to get an anti-septic solution from Dr. Pantree Paiboon who was one
of the doctors there. Khun Kosol cleaned CKN's wounds daily until 2nd Jan BE2514.

One fine day, CKN asked his nephew, “Do you need anything from me? If you do, please go and take the gravel from Amphur Bangbour and I will perform incantations to bless it for you."

Khun Kosol was startled when heard his uncle say that because CKN has seldom volunteered to do such things except on rare occasions when he blessed amulets for the well being of the masses. On some occasions, CKN may ask devotees to take amulets from Chao Khun Udomsarasophon and always instructed them to make some donations and never to take things for free.

Khun Kosol then replied asking, "If Amphur Bangbour doesn’t have gravel, can I take from Chonburi or Samuthsongkram?” CKN answered, “No, you can’t. You can only take from Amphur Bangbour because Bangbour is a good name meaning pit of gold and silver and Samutprakarn Province means melodious and is an auspicious name. There will be gravel there if you were to go now."

Khun Kosol went searching for the gravel at Amphur Bangbour until he was was able to gather one bag of gravel consisting the nine types of gravel indicated by CKN. When CKN finished blessing it, he told Khun Kosal to give it to the children around there for protection, and instructed him to bring more the next day.

As instructed, Khun Kosol brought one more bag of gravel. After the blessing, CKN said, “These are good things and are equivalent to the Guardians of the Earth and have the goodwill of all children. It will also have the power when you give to someone whom you venerate. Put this gravel in the center of a pipal leaf and write Nor and Au on top and write the name of the person below. After that, make a frame to cover it."

After Khun Kosol received one bag of blessed gravel from CKN, everybody asked Khun Kosol for the powerful gravel and he gave one to each person until all was gone.

When CKN saw that, he ask Khun Kosol to bring more gravel but he replied that he did not dare to bring more because he was afraid that CKN was too weak and had no strength to continue with the long, complicated & ardious process of chanting.

CKN said that he wanted to let the people have some good things from him before he leaves this world and assured Khun Kosol that he will be all right. Khun Khunsol immediately went to get the final bag of gravel from Amphur Bangbour.

After he finished the blessing on 7th January BE2514, CKN said that he was not feeling well and he asked to rest in the monk’s residence. He also told one of his students that he would not be attending the prayer session the next day which he had never missed throughout his life.

CKN passed away the next day on Friday, 8th January BE2514 at the age of 74 after having lead a strict & disciplined lifestyle for 46 rain retreats. He was cremated on 22nd February BE2515. Although Dhan Chao Khun Nor has passed away, he is still fondly remembered until today and is immortalized in the hearts of many people. He remains as one of the most renowned and respected monks in Thailand.
