Luang Phor Khan

by Jun Wei

Luang Phor Khan Wat Nokkrajab was born on 8th June BE 2415. Luang Phor Khan has studied Dharma and magic with Luang Phor Suk Wat Pla Kong Makamtao and Luang Phor Oam Wat Wong Kong. Luang Phor Khan was in fact good friends with Luang Phor Parn Wat Bang Nom Kho as both of them would often study together about magic and dharma and exchange knowledge. It can be mentioned that Luang Phor Khan’s monkhood journey was at the time whenby King Rama 5 was around. At that time, the Thai royal family treated the Buddhist monks with respect and trust and the King Rama 5 and his son, Prince Krom Luang Chum Phon were both very respectful towards Luang Phor Khan. At that period of time, the citizens generally lived in abundance hence there were many guru monks at that period of time as well. Prince Krom Luang Chum Phon himself very much like amulets and Sak Yant, hence later on he went to find Luang Phor Khan. When he founded Luang Phor Khan and asked Luang Phor Khan whether could Luang Phor help him to Sak Yant. Luang Phor Khan agreed . This also reflects the respect of guru monks given by the society. The amulets consecrated by Luang Phor Khan himself are mostly using the temple soil. Luang Phor Khan ‘s Phra Somdej and other sacred items are highly- sought after in Thailand. 

Luang Phor Khan 生于佛历 BE 2415年的6月8日,曾跟随 Luang Phor Suk Wat Pla Kong Ma以及 Luang Phor Oam Wat Wong Kong 学习法术,也是全泰五大招财圣物神兽崇迪的制作者Luang Phor Parn 的好友,两人经常一起研究精深的法术与古代经文. Luang Phor Khan僧侣生涯中正值泰国五世皇的繁荣盛世. 那时候泰国皇室跟现在一样对待佛教的圣僧是极为尊重且十分信赖的,五世皇以及他的儿子Krom Luang Chum Phon王子就是对 Luang Phor Khan十分敬仰的. 这时期人民总体来说生活富足,也出现了很多高僧大德. Krom Luang Chum Phon身为水军将领在泰国几乎后来变得也有些神话色彩,在当时的泰国这位王子很受民众支持,是位百战百胜的能人,之后很多高僧也会拿他的样子来制作佛牌,比如 Luang Phor Tim Wat Lahanrai,以及佛历 BE 2515年瓦班近Luang Phor Ngern 自身佛牌大法会,都有用到Krom Luang Chum Phon王子的形象. Krom Luang Chum Phon本身也是喜欢佛牌及纹身之人,于是后来找到了Luang Phor Khan,希望他能够为自己纹身,Luang Phor Khan也很自然的答应,并亲自为其纹身祈福,这也是高僧在当时泰国社会中社会地位的一个很好的表现. 而说到 Luang Phor Khan制作的佛牌,由于当时总体社会水平没有现在这么发达,所以寺庙多不会采用昂贵的材质制作佛牌, Luang Phor Khan基本都是使用寺内的圣土在做佛牌的,他的佛牌如Phra Somdej 等法相的圣物在泰国善信的佩戴口碑中是十分叫好的.
