Luang Phor Seng Wat Bangna, Pathum Thani Province was born on 6th March BE 2444. In fact, Luang Phor Seng is the nephew of Luang Phor Tian Wat Bot. It is known that both Luang Phor Seng and Luang Phor Tian are very diligent in the Buddhism way. When Luang Phor Seng at the age of 12, he was ordained as a novice under the guidance of Ajarn Liang. And it was through the referral of Ajarn Liang that Luang Phor Seng started to learn Wicha from Luang Phor Ding Wat Bangwua who was a good friend of Ajarn Liang. After learning from Luang Phor Ding, Luang Phor Seng had the opportunity to learn the art of making Palakit from Luang Phor Ee Wat Sattaheep and then learn from Luang Phor Ler Wat Sao Jaeng Nork the Wicha of Palakit and then finally he went to learn from Luang Phor Tian Wat Bot. Not to mention, Luang Phor Siew was also one of his teachers. As Luang Phor Siew was Muan, he would teach Luang Phor Seng about Khmer and Thai Language. In fact, Luang Phor Seng was a clever and fast learner but he is also very into concentration.

In BE 2464, Luang Phor Seng returned to Wat Bangna to be ordained as a monk as he had reached the age of 20. His preceptor was Phra Kru Ramaamunee Wat BangLuang while Luang Phor Tian Wat Bot was his acting mentor. At first, he only wanted to be ordained as a monk for 3 months. But during that period of time, he felt that he liked Buddhism and would like to continue studying about Dharma. Hence, he never left monkhood.

By BE 2488, Luang Phor Seng became the abbot of Wat Bangna. And by BE 2511 Luang Phor Seng was granted the title of Phra Kru Mongkon Tam Sunton.

Luang Phor Seng is also known for consecrating boar amulets and Garuda amulets. In fact, Luang Phor Seng was the first monk that created the boar style amulet. It is also believed that the boar amulet consecrated by him protects wearers against evil spirits and black magic.

Luang Phor Seng passed away in BE 2531 at the age of 87. Despite Luang Phor Seng having passed away many years ago, his body remains unrotted till this day as the devotees still can pay respect to him through his glass coffin at Wat Bangna.
