Luang Phor Wan is a respectable guru monk whom people admire and respect. He is famous in Phichit Province and the northern provinces of Thailand. Luang Phor Wan is the abbot of Wat Klong Koon in Phichit Province. In fact, his father was a Thai traditional doctor whereby he would use his Wicha to cure illness and detect any evil spirits. When Luang Phor Wan was young, he saw his father helping out with people on a regular basis. Hence, it made him merciful. Luang Phor Wan started learning Wicha from his father. After he was ordained as a monk, he continued to learn Wicha from other guru monks such as Luang Phor Jan, Luang Phor Rord and many others.
