Luang Phor Phet is the abbot of Wat Sai Tong Pattana in Kanchanaburi Province. He is known to be a good monk with the intention of developing the temple to maintain Buddhism.

Luang Phor Phet was born on 20 March BE 2507 in Nakhon Pathom Province. Luang Phor Phet got ordained as a monk at Wat Sala Tuek, Nakhon Pathom Province. After his ordination, he started learning about Dharma and Wicha from Luang Phor Jiak. Luang Phor Jiak is also known to be a guru monk in Nakhon Pathom Province. In fact, just to mention within Nakhon Pathom Province there are guru monks such as Luang Phor Yaem Wat Sam Ngam and Luang Phor Pern Wat Bang Phra. 

Luang Phor Phet remained to serve Luang Phor Jiak until he passed on. After Luang Phor Jiak passed away, Luang Phor Phet went to Wat Rai Deng Thong, Nakhon Pathom Province. At Wat Rai Deng Thong, Luang Phor Phet had the opportunity to meet Luang Phor Liew. There is when Luang Phor Phet started to learn Wicha from Luang Phor Liew as Luang Phor Liew is known to be an expert on consecrating Phayatao amulets. Therefore, Luang Phor Liew taught Luang Phor Phet the method of consecrating Phayatao amulets. 

Luang Phor Phet learnt Wicha from Luang Phor Liew until he himself became an expert as well. Hence, Luang Phor Phet could also consecrate Phayatao amulets. In fact, Luang Phor Phet stayed at Wat Rai Tang Thong to take care of Luang Phor Liew and Luang Phor Liew trusted Luang Phor Phet. Unexpectedly, Luang Phor Liew assigned Luang Phor Phet as the abbot of Wat Sai Tong Pattana where Luang Phor Liew established in place of him. 

Additionally, when Luang Phor Phet has free time, he would go to Tudong to practice dharma, doing meditation and revise the Wicha that he had learned. 

At a later stage of time, Luang Phor Phet also learnt the making of holy water from Luang Phor Key Wat See Lum Yong in Surin Province. The holy water is called Nammon Thewada. Nowadays, Luang Phor Phet devotes himself to Buddhism and helps devotees.
