Luang Phor Parn

     

Luang Phor Parn Sunantoe Officialy known as Pra Kroo Wiha Ragijjanugarn, was born in 1875 (BE 2418.), and was the youngest son of Mr. Aaj and Mrs. Im Sutawongs. After his birth, he recieved the nickname of "Parn", due to the red Birthmark on the little finger of his left hand, which was seen as an unusual trait. LP Parn received Ordination as a Bikkhu* on the First of April 1895 (BE 2438).

Luang Phor Parn is worshiped as one of the top 10 greatest guru monks of present-day Thailand. He was the closest disciple of Luang Phor Niam Wat Noi, Suphanburi, and also a disciple of Luang Phor Nong Wat Klong Madarn. His two great teachers passed away with their bodies undecayed. Luang Phor Parn passed away in B.E.2480, his body also remains undecayed to this day.


In 1932, five years before he passed away, he had announced to his disciples the date and time of his death. His precognition was quite clear and exactly correct, he passed away on the date and time he had foretold. Luang Phor Parn was a meditative guru monk who possessed magical knowledge. On Buddhist Dhamma, it was recorded that he had attained the six requisites to perform miracles. In essence he possessed the knowledge of precognition, out-of-body ability, mind detecting, and the ability to effect paranormal phenomena, etc.

Apart from this, he also possessed the highest state of Wipassana or the ability to cleanse his mind of impurity, and thus prevent re-birth.

Luang Phor Parn's amulets are known to ward off danger of all kinds. Furthermore his amulets are used by many to create holy water for healing illness that in some cases have not been cured by modern medicine. Luang Phor Parn's amulets are very distinctive and instantly recognisable often featuring Lord Buddha seated upon a carrier creature, i.e. Garuda, Hanuman, porcupine, fish, cock and bird.

 



Luang Phor Parn was also reputed to have received the ability to make powder based amulets of Buddha images sitting on animals from a Chee Ba Khaw, (a spirit that appeared as a firefly). These amulets are extremely sought after and expensive due to their reputed powers.

Luang Phor Parn, who was renowned for his blowing of the sacred Diamond Armour Yantra (or Yant, onto the forehead of his disciples. According to legend, many of these disciples, after death, were found to have an impression of the Yant mysteriously embedded into their skull. The Yant was allegedly revealed to Luang Phor Parn in a dream, which led him to its discovery on a metal template hidden within a Chedi.

Luang Phor Parn's amulets are very popular among Thai amulet collectors because of the frequent and miraculous phenomena associated with them  both recorded and unrecorded
