Back when he was young, his parents passed him by to let Luang Phor Chom take care of him and let him ordained as a novice.  Luang Phor Chom was also a friend of Ajarn Mun. During the time spent with Luang Phor Chom, Luang Phor Chom taught all his magical knowledge to Luang Phor Mee. Once Luang Phor Mee was a teenager, he would walk from Esan (Northeastern Thailand) to China to study breathing, meditation and spiritual practice or “Neigong”. After that,  he went on to study with Luang Phor Sai at Wat PhayakKaram, Lopburi Province. However Luang Phor Mee did spend some of his time working as a policeman. In fact he met and exchanged magical knowledge with the well-known Ajarn Khun Pan.  After his resignation from the police force, Luang Phor Mee was ordained as a monk by Luang Phor Sai Wat Thongkhung who was an expert in Yant Takror. Luang Phor Sai was a well-known guru monk in Ang Thong Province. In fact, Luang Phor Sai knew Luang Phor Mee would continue monkhood until the day he passed away and would become a beloved monk in people’s hearts so Luang Phor Sai taught him all of his knowledge that he had seek from several guru monks such as Luang Phor Klun Wat Phrayat, Luang Phor Im Wat Hua Khao and Luang Phor Suk Wat Pak Klong Makamtao.
