Luang Phor Parn
LP Parn was born in BE 2368 in Tambon Klong Dan. As a young lad he was accepted as a novice monk at Wat Arun, Bangkok where he studied Dhama and Kom to a reasonable proficiency before returning home to help his parents on the family farm.
At the age of 20 he returned to Wat Arun to be ordained a monk. and studied diligently under many Buddhist preceptors and is known to have excelled in meditation.
At a later date he moved to Wat Bang Hia, Amphur Bang Bo where he continued to study and was noted for his strict adherence to Lord Buddhas Dhama. In fact the Abbot gave him the responsibility of taking care of and educating the young novice monks.
From this temple he travelled into the surrounding forests and jungles to practice higher level meditation which also presented him the opportunity to learn many occult sciences (witayakom) from some very well known ascetics, including Aakom, Saiyasat (black magic) and Wetmon (incantation/spells) from Ajahn Nan, in short the specialised knowledge with which to create amulets.
Having become proficient and knowledgeable in many disciplines, he was the first choice to take up the position of Abbot at Wat Bang Hia when it became vaccant.
Whilst practicing in the style of an ascetic monk from the austere forest tradition,(Tudong) spending prolonged periods of time in forests and jungles to practice meditation he by chance met Luang Phor Wat Grabok, Rayong province. They jointly decided to go and learn incantations for tiger magic from Ajahn Tee, and also Ajahn Nan both who were widely known as highly proficient in this science.
This in itself was not an easy task as being accepted as a student required that certain tests be passed to determine suitability, tests that involved wild tigers that must be called into the monks presence. In fact Luang Phor Parn passed the test whilst his companion decided that he was not suited and declined to continue finding fame in other sciences.
Luang Phor Parn was described as possessing Miraculous Magic or Aakom Klang due in part to his highly developed meditative powers. In fact it was widely believed that his powers increased exponentially during the period of the waxing moon and he possessed the ability to transfigure taking on the form of a snake.
