Luang Phor Guay

Luang Phor Guay

by Jun Wei

Luang Phor Guay was born on 2 November BE 2448 in Bankae Village, Sunbury District, Chainat Province. 

He was the first child in his family and was loved very much by his parents, who sent him to be educated by Luang Phor Kuad at Wat Bankae. At the age of 6-7, he could remember and recite many of the sacred spells that he was taught, along with Khmer language and high-level sacred spells. Luang Phor Kuad predicted even at an early age that Luang Phor Guay would become very successful in monkhood and as such dedicated himself to teaching the novice monk. Luang Phor Kuad passed away soon after which resulted in Luang Phor Guay moving to Wat Huaden where he further his studies under Ajahn Dum.

Luang Phor Guay did attend primary school which was at Wat Prao but after two years he returned back to his home village to assist his parents on farming works . At that time, Luang Phor Guay had been told by his parents that if he were to be ordained he would need to stay in the monkhood for life. At the age of 20, he was ordained as a monk by Phra Chainatmuni, Luang Phor Pa and Phra Ajahn Ring on July 5th, BE2467 at Wat Bost, Chainat Province. He was also given the official name “Chutinataro”, which in fact has a significant and very deep meaning and can loosely be translated as follows:“This world is full of lust, passion and greed. He who wishes to be enlightened must free himself from all of them.”

Sacred Book

It was recorded that Luang Phor Guay had owned a book called “Kru Rang”, which was full of sacred spells. It was said that only monks that had sufficient sacred power to open and read the volume. Should it be opened by an ordinary person his life may be affected. As it was known that the book contained many sacred spells, to dispel evil, protection from weapons, and a scared spell to call upon Mae Thorani which also can be known as  the goddess of the earth. Luang Phor Guay had learned all the sacred spells and also copied the book for other monks. Today several copies are kept following these following temple: 

Wat Tatong, Supunburi Province, kept by Ajarn Tau. Wat Nong-i-duke, Chainat Province, kept by Ajarn Sawang. And lastly Wat Kositaram, kept by Luang Phor Guay.  The copy at Wat Kositaram has never been opened and studied in any detail because of previous experiences of mysterious illness or disease associated with it.

Apart from the book Luang Phor Guay also learnt magic sciences from many other senior monks such as Luang Phor Puang Wat Nong Kradone, Luang Phor Kun Wat Khaokaew. As a disciple of Luang Phor Derm, Wat Nongpo he also learnt the sacred sciences to create mitmor and takruts.Moreover he also learnt ancient Thai medical sciences from Luang Phor Ken Wat Dongsetti Uthaitani Province which specialise on a special type of Wicha that is believed to be able to help with repairing of broken bones.

Luang Phor Pumpum Wat Nongtangoo, a friend of Luang Phor Guay had mentioned that his friend Luang Phor Guay was a true monk who was never afraid of anything which resulted in him learning magic.  Furthermore it was also said that Luang Phor Guay had a magic mouth. If he made a prediction, in all likelihood it would become true.(Note: Monks, who were known to possess a magic mouth must not tell lies, otherwise it would be nullified.) 

Secret of the sacred book

Many people were obviously very inquisitive about where Luang Phor Guay obtained his sacred book. Some of his disciples actually revealed that  Luang Phor Guay had never expected that he would gain the book. Until 1 June BE 2477, he was staying at Wat Nongkam, Chainat Province where he was learning higher level of ancient Thai medical sciences.During that time a monk named Jam had told Luang Phor Guay that he had found a book, which was hidden in a hole of a dead tree but he could not extract the book because sacred souls were preventing him from doing so. Luang Phor Guay was taken to see the book himself, whereupon he lit three incense sticks and prayed to the sacred souls “If it is your desire that I own this book, burn the incense to completion. ”The sticks did not burn. Again Luang Phor Guay re-lit another three sticks and asked “If You want me to own and use the book to help the temple and people, burn the incense to completion.”This time all of those sticks were quickly burnt and Luang Phor Guay could easily extract the sacred manual.By reading through the book, he discovered an paragraph which clearly stated that the book was not to be owned by laypeople unless the keeper and family were suffering from incurable disease or other calamity.

Sacred Sak Yant

Around BE 2484, after Luang Phor Guay returned to Wat Bankae (Wat Kositaram), where he organized  a sacred ceremony to Sak Yant devotees, who believed that his sacred power could help protect them from all dangers and weapons. At the time though, without modern communications, as many as 44,000 devotees visited the temple to request the sacred Sak Yant from Luang Phor Guay.

Robbers’ respects  

After Luang Phor Guay had completed his Sak Yant, he focused his attention on consecrated sacred amulets, takruts, mitmor and rian, etc. His amulets were highly respected by the devotees as they are to this day.Even robbers highly respected Luang Phor Guay and at that time whenever they passed by his temple they would shoot once in the air to salute him.

Abbot of Wat Bangkae (Wat Kositaram)

Due to his virtues, On 1st September BE 2491, he became the abbot of Wat Kositaram. It has been recorded that during the period of World War II, Luang Phor Guay gave away his sacred amulets to the public. As many people wanted Luang Phor Guay’s blessing and amulets to help protect themselves from danger in wartime such as weapons and bombs. 

Apart from that Luang Phor Guay was also a monk that strictly followed the teachings of Buddha. During his stay in Wat Kositaram, he was known to preach the history of Buddha including the legend of Pravessundorn.

On 19th June BE 2472, Luang Phor Guay began to learn “Pariyatti Dharma” (high level of Buddha ’s Dharma) at Wat Wangkorn. In order to learn more, he began his learning journey to Wat Phra Bhrang Singburi Province. It was here that he was to learn magic from Luang Phor Sri Viriyasopit, who in particular taught him higher level meditation and the magic to create sacred rings.Indeed all of Luang Phor Guay’s sacred rings were carved with the Khmer sacred spell just as those of Luang Phor Sri.

Luang Phor Guay 生于佛历 BE 2448 11月2号,出生在猜纳府里一个名叫邦奇的小村庄. 

佛历 BE 2477年6月1日, Luang Phor Guay 在机缘巧合下找到了一本古老圣书. 当时 Luang Phor Guay 在瓦农刊里学习更加高深法门的时候,一位名为Jam的和尚跟Luang Phor Guay 说,他发现了一本圣书,隐藏在一棵已经枯朽的树的树洞里,但因为有精灵在守护那本圣书所以那位和尚拿不到,于是和尚带着Luang Phor Guay 来到那棵树下,Luang Phor Guay 在树下点了三根蜡烛,然后向那棵树里的精灵说:"如果你希望我拥有那本圣书,请把三根蜡烛烧完,但蜡烛的火不能烧完就熄了."

大师重新点了三根新的蜡烛再一次跟树里的精灵说:"如果你希望我拥有那本圣书之后,帮助寺庙和人民的话,请把三根蜡烛给烧完. "当Luang Phor Guay 说完这句话之后,那三根蜡烛很快的烧完了.

随后Luang Phor Guay 小心地从树洞里拿出那本圣书,第一页写着——"这本圣书不是普通人可以阅读的,除非是修为很高的僧人拿来帮助人们或行善才可以拥有,普通人打开圣书后将会遭遇恶果. "

Luang Phor Guay 发现书中除了包含很多古老的法门之外,还可以呼唤大地女神(Mae Thoroni)来帮忙消灾解难. 大师学会了圣书中所有的法门之后复制了副本,分别保存在三间寺庙中以便高僧可以更好地传承并造福人民.

Luang Phor Guay 也是一位金口高僧,大师所说的话都会成真.

在佛历 BE 2484年,Luang Phor Guay 回去瓦邦奇(Wat Bankae-瓦可喜达兰的旧庙名)之后,举办了一场纹身法会为村民们祈福驱难. 村民们相信龙婆贵的纹身可以为其避险和获得好运,在那个资讯不发达的年代,共有4万4千信众慕名而来参加 Luang Phor Guay 的法会. 


由于法门独特和高深的修为, Luang Phor Guay 的法术在泰国历代法师中可算得上数一数二.

在某次法会中, Luang Pu Toh 就曾感应到Luang Phor Guay强大的法力波动,并主动向僧众询问Luang Phor Guay.
