Luang Phor Pring is a guru monk that everyone should find out more information about. Luang Phor Pring is considered one of the many guru monks of Thailand but is also a very well-respected monk alongside other guru monks such as Phra Somdej Buddhachan Toh.

Luang Phor Pring’s Loop Om is also one of the top 5 Loop Om in Thailand. And lastly, Luang Phor Pring is the uncle of Mae Shee Buem Luem.

Luang Phor Phring was born on April BE 2412. He was ordained as a novice and was educated at Wat Rachsitaram (Wat Plub), Thonburi District, Bangkok. Until he reached the age of 20, he was ordained as a monk at Wat Tongnopakun, Klongsarn District, Bangkok. After his ordination, he was given the name “Intachoti” and went to Wat Bangpakok.

Luang Phor Pring was a sacred monk apart from Buddha’s Dharma. He would also dedicate himself to learn many sacred magic and high level meditation. And his amulets are highly- sought after. It has been recorded that during one of the major ceremonies in history that was held at Wat Suthat to bless a batch of amulets by Somdej Phra Sangkharaj Pae. All the invited monks were required to write sacred spells onto the metal plates. Hence, these sacred plates would be melted and poured into the moulds. But when it comes to Luang Phor Pring’s metal plates that were taken to the furnace the plate would not melt which surprised everyone that was present. It was once that after Luang Phor Pring recited additional spells that the plates would finally melted.

During the period between BE 2480 till BE 2485 whereby both the Indo-Chinese and World War 2 erupted. Many people moved to Wat Bangpakok to stay as they truly believed that Luang Phor Pring’s sacred power would save them. There was once a Japanese- military regiment that was located near Wat Bangpakok that resulted in several attacks by the United States Air Force. Despite the proximity not the slightest bit of damage was ever recorded.

All those that remained within the confines of Wat Bangpakok were spared their lives. A miracle that is associated with Luang Phor Pring. It was said that Luang Phor Pring had recited sacred spells to prevent bombs and bullets hitting the temple. Through this event, Luang Phor Pring is known as a guru monk and was remembered by his devotees.

There is also a story about Luang Phor Pring. Due to his fame, many people had asked to become his disciple including HRH Prince Chumbhornket Udomsak, son of King Rama V.

It was said that after Prince Chumbhornket Udomsak became his disciple, Luang Phor Pring had given him an amulet, a piece of the forehead bone of Nangnark, the most ferocious ghost in Thai history. (The story of the ghost started out like this : From Bangkok’s Prakanong District, Maak(Husband) is sent to fight in a war and is required to leave his pregnant wife, Nark. Maak is injured in a shooting accident, and barely survives. He returns home to his wife and child, or so he thinks. Mysterious events start to occur.)

A close friend of Maak pays a visit to him one day and realises that Maak is still living together with his beloved wife, Nark. The villagers, known that Nark died in childbirth several months previously, realise what is happening that Maak is spell-bound by Nark‘s ghost.

People who attempt to tell Maak, or who know too much, would be killed by Nark who becomes more active in her aggression due to her inability to accept her early death and her frantic desire to stay with her husband. Eventually Somdej Phra Buddhacharn Toh Promrungsi came and started reciting sacred spells to conquer her. He removed off her forehead bone to create a special kind of sacred amulet. Since then no one has ever seen Nark again and Prakanong District returned to peaceful existence. (This whole account was turned into one of Thailand’s most popular ghost movies.)

It was also said that after Prince Chumbhornket Udomsak had brought Nangnark’s forehead bone to the royal palace, where some of his family members had witnessed her soul on two separate occasions.

M.L. Pramaha Sawang Seniwong Na Ayudhaya, the author of the biography of Somdej Phra Buddhacharn Toh Promrungsi, had recorded in his book that after Somdej Phra Buddhacharn Toh had passed away the piece of Nangnark’s forehead bone was given to Somdej Phra Buddhacharn Tud who later on given it to Luang Phor Pring Wat Bangpakok.

After it was given to Prince Chumbhornket Udomsak, he sent Nark to a peaceful place and no one has seen the bone and Nark again.

Luang Phor Pring passed away on 17th August BE 2490 at the age of 77.

Luang Phor Pring 出生于 BE 2413年,圆寂于2490817日,是当年时那个时期全泰闻名的圣僧. Luang Phor Pring 师承Wat Rakhang Kositaram Luang Phor Pilan,而Luang Phor Pilan则是Somdej Phra Buddhacharn Toh 的高徒,所以说Luang Phor Pring Somdej Phra Buddhacharn Toh 派系第三代传人.

Luang Phor Pring 在二战时期名闻全国,传奇故事很多,但是最有名的要数当年五世皇之子Prince Chumbhornket Udomsak(五世皇最有名的儿子)因不相信大师的能力与其斗法,败后 Prince Chumbhornket Udomsak Luang Phor Pring 为师修行佛法. 最后 Luang Phor Pring 还将Somdej Phra Buddhacharn 圆寂时交大名鼎鼎的鬼妻娜娜的头骨转交与 Prince Chumbhornket Udomsak 手上,因为 Luang Phor Pring 相信在当时 Prince Chumbhornket Udomsak 有能力降服住娜娜.

Luang Phor Pring 督造加持的崇迪是全泰五大崇迪之一,而路翁也同样入列全泰五大路翁之一. 此款圣物是在二战时期制作并发放给民众的,也是那个时期最出名的路翁. 就连另一位五大路翁之一的Wat Tukata 也是向Luang Phor Pring 学习的路翁加持法门.
