Ajarn Khun Pan

Ajarn Khun Pan

by Jun Wei


Ajarn Khun Pan is considered to be one of the most well-known white-robed Ajarn. The amulet that is consecrated by him such as his Jatukam amulet are known to be highly sought-after. As a matter of fact, he is well-known for his Visha (magic) and was frequently invited to participate in ceremonies around Thailand.

Not only was he a white-robed Ajarn, he also used to be a police officer that holded the noble title Khun and passed away at the age of 108. During the period, when he was a police officer, he was known to be a tough crime buster in the South side of Thailand for over 70 years. In fact, he was well-respected by his colleagues and the local residents but feared by criminals. Apart from that, Ajarn Khun Pan was well-versed in Thai history and folklore and was a prolific writer having written several articles for publications.

He was born on 18th February BE 2446 in Nakhon Si Thammarat's Tha Sala district. By BE 2472, he graduated from Huay Chorakae police cadet academy in Nakhon Pathom. After his graduation from the police academy, he spent several years earning a reputation for wiping out many notorious criminal gangs in southern part of Thailand such as Phatthalung and in the central area of Thailand like Suphanburi. As a result, he was granted his title in BE 2479.

However in BE 2503, he was appointed as the chief of Police that was in charge of 8 regions and was promoted to police major-general. However, he retired from his police position in BE 2507 and entered politics and was elected as a Nakhon Si Thammarat MP for the Democrat party in BE 2516.

When Ajarn Khun Pan passed away, his funeral rites were held at Wat Mahathat Woramahawiharn in Nakhon Si Thammarat's Muang district and his body was given royal bathing rites.

阿赞坤潘是泰國警察八區的首長也是目前最後一個受封封號的平民. 阿赞坤潘以104歲高壽離世一輩子超過七十年的時間在為國家與人民服務師父嫉惡如仇是在泰國非常有名的犯罪剋星更是泰國南部Nakhon Si Thammarar的精神領袖師父除了是在工作上是犯罪剋星師父也是精通泰國文化、歷史、與民間文化的學者阿赞坤潘有許多作品、包括鋼筆文集等等.

而阿赞坤潘是泰皇所授予的榮譽頭銜通常只有功勳彪炳的人才有機會受封而授予的封號抬頭是有象徵排名的通常是代表在某方面的專長或是功績因此師父所給的榮譽封號是Khun 尊敬的名稱為Phantharak Rajadej這個榮譽封號就用來取代原來的名字,以表示尊敬師父是在BE 2446年2月18號出生於Butr Phantharak在 Nakhon Si Thammarat. 於 BE 2472 年在那空帕空省的Huay Chorakae警察學校畢業. 師父因破獲許多重大的犯罪事件與擊破許多重大犯罪集團因此在泰國有犯罪剋星的稱號. 

师父在家中排第二,原名坤潘他那拉則滴.小時候父親就教導他們幾兄弟基本的語法,顯示R师父會到附近的寺廟學習巴利文.當坤潘第一天進學校上學的時候,学校的老师給他一份測試智商的考卷,當阿赞坤潘交卷時,老師看了就說,明天直接上二年級.隔天坤潘又接受了第二份考卷,當交卷時,老師又只是坤平明天直接上三年級. 三天連上三級,這事被傳為佳話,可見坤潘智商之高. 而师父在中小學時代,每年都名列前茅,而且一有空就找明師學習玄學及法術. 後來拜師法術第一寺Wat Khao Orr學習了很多法術,本身更身歷Wat Khao Orr如浸草藥、經水、連續數日夜誦經,加上師父還在他身上刺符,才練就坤平刀槍不入之身,乃至有“鐵皮神探”之稱.  

他在21歲考進警校,在警校裡又學到了多種武術. 五年畢業後,受委派到Phatthalung當警探. 而此州府是出了名棘手的,匿藏這多名大盜,還有很多警察都不敢越池半步的黑區. 可是师父並不怕,偏向惡勢力挑戰.在短短五年時間裡,成功親手緝拿多名大盜,如大盜桑、大盜甫、大盜猛、大盜通、大盜喲和大盜嶺等等. 州政府將坤潘的功績據實承保泰皇,後泰皇封賜他,警階為一皇帽扁則瑪級.

當年师父還未那麼有名的時候,就在Hat Yai和Songkhla中心打入了兩支權杖下去,改變了整個地方的風水,是的當時並不繁榮的Hat Yai和Songkhla變得繁榮興旺.這件事情只要問當地的老前輩都會知道的. 

當他30歲時,他申請停職一年,到Wat Mahathat出家為僧.在受戒一年裡,坤潘勤於鑽研佛法戒律.1年後擇吉日還俗時,有很多警察警長都來恭迎他“出關”.還俗後的一個月,政治部調派坤潘去Naratiwat當警長.當時此州府多位回教徒,坤潘來到此地後也學會少許馬來語,可以和民眾溝通.此州府有一大盜因為有政治背景作後盾,而且本身也曾學過法術,擁有刀槍不入之身,無惡不作,搶劫殺人視等閑事,人民每天都生活在恐懼之中.

當他得知後,連忙部署一切,經過多月追蹤後,他終於找上大盜,經過一番激鬥,各施其法,最終大盜不敵他,並被送進獄中服刑.而不久後,大盜則在獄中自殺身亡,居民們才松了口氣. 之后他還曾為多個州府服務,在任期間至少擒下上百個凶狠的大盜,此豐功偉績至今無人可敵. 

阿赞坤潘因破獲許多重大的犯罪事件與擊破許多重大犯罪集團,因此在泰國有犯罪克星的稱號,於BE 2503年升為警察八區的首長,並於BE 2507年退休,後來參與了許多國家活動,並擔任顧問一職. 於 BE 2516 參選為上議員,是民主黨的成員. 阿赞坤潘擁有12兒女也過著幸福的晚年生活,身體健壯,並無病痛,於BE 2549年7月5日自然往生,享年108歲.

由於他一生非常正直與清廉,一直致力於撲滅犯罪,因此深受泰國人民的愛戴,而阿赞坤潘也是一位有非常高修為的白衣大師,經過一百天的誦經回向儀式,於2550年2月22日才舉行火化儀式.由於九世皇因身體欠佳,特派王子親拿泰皇御火,為這位一代英雄送別. 在阿赞坤潘別式當天,有大約有三十萬的民眾特意前往吊唁.並且在告別式的前兩天就有許多民眾已經湧入Wat Mahathat Worra Maha Wiharn. 由於人數非常眾多,因此造成非常嚴重的塞車,警方因此不得不封閉主要道路,並建議民眾利用步行前往告別式. 現場場面之盛大令人為之動容,原本當天現場准備派送坤潘親自加持開光的澤度金佛牌,但因為人數實在超過預期太多太多,並且有許多人在現場昏厥,所以這一款澤度金佛牌只贈送給參加告別式的重要官員與皇室成員,最後在皇室的主持下完成坤潘的告別式. 

他除了在工作上有非常突出的表現外,在個人修為上也是非常的高深,曾經參與過許多佛牌的開光法會,而澤度金就是阿赞坤潘最特別的聖物.
