Luang Phor Yai

Luang Phor Yai also known as Phra Ajarn Somporn Somwaro is the abbot of Wat Pa Phrathamyannamunee in Nakhon Pathom Province. Luang Phor Yai is an expert that is well-known for his knowledge about Lek Lai . The process of getting Lek Lai is not a simple step. As one must have enough magical power to invite Lek Lai to appear and to cut it. If the person does not have magical power, he will get nothing and may fall in danger. Luang Phor Yai is a good monk as he would use his magical competence to help people.

Luang Phor Yai was born on 26th April BE 2506 in Bangkok. When Luang Phor Yai was still a small kid, he was different from other boys instead of playing, he would do Buddhist chanting. Surprisingly, he could chant very well at a young age. At the age of 13, Luang Phor Yai was ordained as a novice. As a novice, he would study by himself. Then, Luang Phor Yai would achieve Nak Tham Ek (highest level of dharma education for a Buddhist), then studied traditional Thai medicine and went to study with many guru monks. Luang Phor Yai even had a chance to study meditation with Luang Phor Sim Wat Tham Pha Pong and Luang Phor Waen Wat Doi Mae Pang who both were famous guru monks that live in the Northern Part of Thailand. Then Luang Phor Yai went to Tudong by walking in the woods and mountains to develop meditation for 6 years. Until the age of 20, Luang Phor Yai was ordained as a Buddhist monk.

Luang Phor Yai would always learn new things especially ritual and mysterious science. He also keeps old mantra scriptures for next generations to learn. His interest led him to Ajarn Lamyoon, a Lek Lai guru in Southern Thailand. Ajarn Lamyoon taught him how to invite Lek Lai. Luang Phor Yai is also the last disciple of Ajarn Lamyoon because after having Luang Phor Yai as a student, Ajarn Lamyoon never teaches anyone about Lek Lai. Not only that, Luang Phor Yai sharpened his knowledge and ability in Lek Lai by studying with other guru monks until he became an expert in Lek Lai.

What is Lek Lai?

Lek Lai is a mysterious sacred substance which has the subject of legendary tales of miracle powers that has become a cult phenomenon in recent years. Also due to the ease of access to information enabled by the internet, as well as being due to increased international trading and a massive increase in Thai Buddhism. Lek Lai used to be presented in only a few forms, shapes and sizes. However, there are now literally hundreds of different looking substances which those who market them consider to be Lek Lai or Lek Lai derivatives. Lek Lai has been used as an ingredient for mixing into amulets for centuries, as well as being used as a magical element in its own right.

Although Lek Lai is known about and exists in many different countries, cultures. Lek Lai has come to be known to come from Thailand.

This is not without good reason. Due to the fact that in Thailand there are still a great number of Kruba Ajarn that are adept in sensing the presence of Lek Lai. They are also experts in the art of transforming Lek Lai into various forms of amulet and even insertion of Lek Lai under the skin of devotees. For this reason, it is no surprise that Thailand is the number one source of the Wicha of the creation of Lek Lai Taat Gaayasit. This is pure Elemental Magic and Alchemy.

Lek Lai is a metallic element with a life of its own. It is also the karmic effect of spirits which have been driven by the winds of karma to be reborn in Samsara in the form of metallic elemental substances and is subject to having to eat (honey) and excrete (Khee Lek Lai) residue.

Lek Lai is considered a living being of the Deva classification (Angelic Deity) who has been driven to be born on earth. There are both Kon Tan and Yaksa type Devas found inhabiting Lek Lai, which gives each different Lek Lai its own special powers and properties which differ with each inhabiting Deva.

Lek Lai is something which will protect wearers carrying it from guns or sharp objects (such as knives or swords), and all other harmful weapons. Some people believe that Lek Lai is indestructible and immortal (Adamantine).

We should comment on this belief, that the Lord Buddha already expounded the Dhamma to be based on the three Truths of Impermanence, Dhukkha and Non-Self. All material things are subject to change, and eventual dissolution. It seems unreasonable to believe that Lek Lai should be any different from all other worldly Dharmas.

Matter cannot be destroyed, but it is constantly changing its form. If changing of form is not considered to affect the immortality of an object. Then we could also say that the human body is immortal, simply that it has changed form into, slime for example. All things with a beginning have an end, even this planet and solar system will one day end, and then at the latest, the Lek Lai will also end. This is the way things should be, for development is reliant on change, and liberation is reliant on the destruction of one's limits (the body).
