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.
