Luang Por Tob was born on third of March 2424 BE. In the year 2445 BE, he came of age, and was ordained as a fully fledged adult Bhikkhu in the Buddha Sasanā, at Wat Silāmōng. Pra Kroo Mueang was his Upachāya, and Pra Ajarn Parn as his Pra Gammawājājārn, and Pra Ajarn Si as his Pra Anusāwanājārn.

 

He was given the Ordained name of ’Tammabanyõ’, which means ‘He who has Great Knowledge in Dhamma’. After his ordination as a Bhikkhu, he traveled to practice Vipassanā Kammathān and Buddha Magic (Wityākom/Wicha) with Pra Ajarn Parn, and once more excelled to the point of reaching adept mastery of the various Wicha taught to him by Pra Ajarn Parn.

After completing his studies of Wicha with Pra Ajarn Parn. Luang Por Tob then went on Tudong forest wandering, to practice solitude and develop his Kammathāna practice. During the time he spent on Tudong, he met many great Masters, and learned their Magical Wicha.

During the times of Tudong, Luang Por Tob met and became very close friends with the great Luang Por Khien Tamma Ragkhidto, who was one of the Great Famous Masters of the Petchaburn Province in that Era. Luang Por Tob and Luang Por Khien became very close friends and companions.

Luang Por Tob, made merits building temples, Sala Bprian Dhamma Halls, Uposatha Shrine Rooms for temples in need, and restored many shrines, buildings and delapidated temple facilities scattered around the province. He made countless merits both with worldly acts, and with the spiritual teachings of the Buddha-Dhamma, and the memory of his great deeds remains in the minds of the devotees to this day, and has passed into the living memory of the current generation of Devotees.

When Luang Por Tob went on Tudong to the municipality of Chon Daen, and stayed in the forest close to the locality, the local Buddhist Folk of Chon Daen came to pay reverence, and asked Luang Por Tob to build the temple of Wat pra Puttabat Khao Noi, which was at the time was only a small Samnak Songk Sangha station in the forest.

 

Luang Por Tob accepted and built Kuti Hut dormitories for the Monks, an Uposatha Shrine Room, a Sala Bprian, and improved the facilities of the temple, transforming it into a large and popular temple for the local community, which was then raised in official status from the status of ’Samnak Songk’ and registered as a ‘Wat’ (fully fledged Temple).

 

Luang Por Tob passed away on the 14th of March 2519 BE, on the fourth phase of the fourth lunar month, at the age of 95 years old, after 75 years of ordained life.

The current abbot of Wat Chang Phueak (Wat Chon Daen), Pra Kroo Wimol Pacharagij, who is a direct transmission lineage Looksit of Luang Por Tob, says that Luang Por Tob had given instructions before his death, that his body should not be cremated, because one day in the future, his body would become of use to the temple in some way.

 

So after his death, the Looksit of Luang Por Tob took his body, and placed it inside a glass coffin. The provincial offices then built a Roop Muean statue of Luang Por Tob, and a shrine area for its placement, so that Devotees could worship Luang Por Tob’s image and his Relics.

 

In the present Era, Wat Chang Phueak (Wat Chon Daen) is a place where Buddhists from around South-East Asia and the rest of the World come in Pilgrimage and to sight-see. Hundreds and Thousands of devotees visit the temple every day to pay reverence to the relics of Luang Por Tob, and beseech his blessings. Luang Por Tob’s body has not deteriorated, and has calcified to become stone over the years, and remains in the same condition as it was when he was first placed into the glass coffin.

Each year, the temple performs a ritual to change his robes. The used robes which are removed, are cut up into pieces and given to the Devotees to use as articles of Faith, Good Fortune and Protection of the Blessings of Luang Por Tob.

The amulets of Luang Por Tob are amongst the most highly preferred of any master, with his Roop Lor Hnaa Farang, and the Rian Dode Rom Parachute coin, and Rian Paetch Rab coin being the most highly sought after amulets in his image, and his Takrut Tone spells being the most highly preferred of his Talismanic ‘Krueang Rang’ type amulets

So many of his amulets have become world famous classics and highly renowned for their magical power.

His charms and Talismans are legendary for their power of Kong Grapan Chadtri, Klaew Klaad, and Maha Ud Magic. His Takrut Tone Tak Daay Cord-Bound Yantra scroll spells are the most highly sought after amulets in the ’Sian Pra’ amulet collector societies, and carry heavy prices to them, and are immensely rare to find. Luang Por Tob was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of many of the great Masters we know in recent times, including the great Luang Phu Khui of Wat Sap Takian, who is also now yet another deceased Master whose amulets and Wicha Kong Grapan Chadtri were legendary. Luang Por Tob is one of the most respected masters for possessing the Wicha of Luang Phu Sukh, used for his powerful Takrut amulets, and whose Pra Somdej, Monk Coins, and Metallic Roop Lor Boran amulets are amongst the rarest and most fervently guarded by devotees and collectors.

A rare item indeed from the Great Luang Phu Jiam, Khmer Master Monk of the Surin Province – Four pairs of Takrut (totalling 8) bound onto a cord belt to wear around the waist, for Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud Protection, with the Power of Prayer Water Immersion in Traimas (3 month Trimester) Blessing imbued within.

This compendium magic belt is composed of four pairs of two Takrut Yantra Foil scroll spells measuring 2.5 Inches each in length, which were immersed in Holy Water for 3 Months, receiving Incantations throughout their traditional Traimas empowerment blessing.

The amulets of Luang Phu Jiam (especially his monk coins and Takrut), became very popular with the Thai Armed Forces, after various incidents of soldiers who wore the amulet having escaped death in unexplainable circumstances, which caused the Takrut to receive news coverage.

Above Image; Batallion Commander shows his 2522 BE Second Edition Takrut Koo Rian Luang Phu Jiam amulet off as he tells that the whole regiment wear this amulet as their preferred protector, due to their faith in Luang Phu Jiam and his powers of Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud. Another soldier is seen below in a parade, wearing Luang Phu Jiam’s famous ‘Takrut Koo Rian Luang Por Jiam Run Sorng Chae Nam Mont’ amulet.

The Takrut See Koo (Takrut Paed Dork), is bound to a cord belt for easy wearing, and to cover all eight directions of time and space, covering and protecting you from all directions at the same time. The takrut are covered with a transparent tube but left open ended for the magic to flow into the skin, and the cord which passes through it shall carry its energies into the skin of the devotee. This is the method used in traditional olden days fashion, where the amulet should touch the skin directly, or through a suitable medium (such as the cord). This derives from the fact that olden days folk believed to allow the power of the amulet to work with maximum power, through skin contact (‘Sampat Phiw’).

The other monk attendiing is the great Luang Phu Hongs Prohmabanyo, of Wat Petchburi (Sussaan Tung Mon), in Surin, who is paying respects to this great Khmer Monk. Luang Phu Hongs was also highly revered by the Khmer People, who believe that he saved them from a bom which fell on the village where he was staying nearby in the forest.

Biography and Patipatā of Luang Phu Jiam Adtisayō, Wat Intarasukaram (Wat Nong Yaw), in Surin Province.

The legendary Luang Phu Jiam Adtisayō (Pra Kroo Udom Worawaet), was a Surin Province master monk, who was incorruptible in his diligence of practice of the Dhamma Vinaya, and the ascetic life of the mendicant monk.

He disassociated himself from all worldly attachments, focusing on the truth of impermanence, the unsatisfactoriness of refuging in impermanent things, and the not-self nature of all things, to attain enlightenment through liberation of the awakened wisdom mind. He was endowed with powerful psychic abilities which arose through his diligence of practice, and was revered by a massive congregation of devotees.

Luang Phu Jiam was born in Ban Don Rung, in Pratia Nia municipality of the County of Mangkalaburi in the Prpvince of Pra Dtabong, in Kampuchea. He was born on New Years Day the 1st january 2454 BE, which was a monday in the 13th phase of the lunar ascension of the second lunar month, in the year of the pig. He was the oldest child, and had two brothers and one sister.

Education

Luang Phu Jiam’s primary education was at the state school in Mangkalaburi, where he was able to study Khmer and French language according to the traditional Kampuchean (Khmer) laws.When he finished his primary education and started secondary school, he had to stop after a period of only 3 months into his first year. This was due to the poverty his family were experiencing and also because of the effect the Civil War was having on his country. He then worked hard to help his family by doing farming jobs and selling wares on the markets, and raised his family’s standard of living to keep them sustained throughout the time of difficulty.

When he reached the age of 26, he was married to a young girl and had four children over the years that came. As he was a lover of his country and was very sad to see what was happening to it as it was currently suffering the French Invasion and Rule, he decided to help to do something about it, and bring his country back to a state of independence. And so he moved closer to the Khmer-Thai border with his family, and joined up with a group of rebels who were forming to go and fight against the French army.

But as they fought on, and time passed, they began to receive heavy damages from the French attacks, and were forced to flee over the border into Thailand, to avoid being defeated and killed. He planned to stay in Thailand for the group to reform and return to fight a renewed struggle against the French. He entered Thailand into the province of Surin in the year 2485 BE, traveling with a Khmer monk by the name of Pra Kroo Dee. The slept outside in the forest and by the waysides as they traveled, until they reached Sangka municipality. They remained around this area and sought work doing odd jobs,and eventually ended up coming to stay at the temple of Wat Taksin Waree Siri Sukh, in Ban Lam Duan.

He offered his services and requested to be a devotee of the abbot, Luang Por Wang Tammachodto. He devoted himself to serving the needs of Luang Por Wang, and eventually, in the year 2501 BE, became so beloved by the abbot and the monks of the temple, that the abbot offered to be his sponsor and ordain him as a Bhikkhu. At this time he was already 47 years old. He was given the ‘Chāyā’ monk name of ‘Adtisayō’.

Luang Por Wang was a famed Master of Wicha Akom (Buddha Magic), and bestowed his Wicha and their methods to Luang Phu Jiam, including the methods of empowering holy water, Takrut and other kinds of amulets. Once a year, Luang Phu Jiam would travel to learn and advance his magical Wicha with the great Luang Por Bprao Puttachodti of Wat Suwana Radtana Poti Wanaram. He learned how to bestow powerful blessings onto devotees with the spells he learned with this great Kroo Ba Ajarn of Surin.

He developed the ability to ease the sufferings of the folk with his blessings, healing illnesses, and raising the poverty stricken into prosperity with Maha Lap blessings. The faith of the people in Luang Phu Jioam himself began to rise, and his popularity spread around the province, as devotees told stories of how their lives had improved after receiving his blessings.

Tudong Tale

Luang Phu Jiam had now mastered his Wicha, and found his path, and so took off on Tudong forest wandering to gather his powers and fopcus them through the solitude of the forest and the detachment of constantly moving around, and not settling in one place. He traveled through the fegions of Northern Thailand, the North-East, the central and West-Central Regions, and around the forests of Laos, always avoidiing the settlements, and staying close to the mountains and caves in the forest.

During these years of Tudong, he met many great Tudong Forest Masters on his travels, who became his Kroo Ba Ajarn and bestowed him with the knowledge of their Wicha. He learned from many discussions and shared experiences, how to apply the proper methods of Samatha and Vipassana Kammathāna Meditation and Introspective Mindfulness practices.

Chueak Kart Aew Takrut Paed Dork Luang Phu Jiam Wat Nong Yaw

These are the true practices taught by the Buddha Sakyamuni, which lead to Enlightenment, and Arahantship. He spent a full 13 years developing his practice in this way, until one rainy retreat, he came to the temple of Wat Taksin Waree in the ear 2512 BE

Building of Wat Intrasukaram (Wat Nong Yaw)

After his stay at Wat Taksin Waree, on the 27th April, he returned to is practice of Tudong wandering, and as he was in the vicinity of Nong Yant village, the faithful devotees of the area came to where Luang Phu was meditating in the forest, and begged him to build a temple at Nong Yaw in Udom district of Choke Chai township, Sangka County of Surin Province. At fist of course he stayed in a sparse hut and developed a small ‘Samnak Songk’ Sangha Office.

As the temple grew in size and its facilities, what was once a small Samnak Songk forest temple, had become a true temple with all the necessary installations to serve the community and the Monkdom. The temple was officially registered legally as a temple with the name of ‘Wat Intrasukaram’. Luang Phu Jiam devoted himself thereafter to teach the congregation to keep the 5 precepts of not killing, stealing, lying and slandering, adultery and intoxication, which are all unskilful acts and causes of future suffering, and to spread the Buddha-Dhamma to the folk.

Amulets (Notable Editions)

Luang Phu Jiam being a Khmer monk, who possessed the many Wicha of the Tudong Masters, was often beseeched to make amulets for the congregations. So he made his first edition of amulets, the ‘Takrut Tone’ with a Rian Roop Muean coin in his image, and a Pra Gaew Morakot emeral Buddha amulet attached together on a cord as a compendium of Magical Spells and Buddhist Blessings. He would give them the amulets he would make, to increase their peace of mind, and bring them protection and prosperity.

Within a short period of time, the Legend of his amulets began to take hold, as it became apparent that the people who possessed them, were experiencing Miraculous events. This caused people to abound at the temple queuing up in throngs to beg Luang Phu Jiam for one of his Takrut with amulets attached to wear as a necklace. Luang Phu would inscribe each yantra foil individually and empower it and bind it to his amulets and give them to the devotees, to wear around their necks. Then people began to ask him to perform the exorcism of black magic curses and evil spirits, forest phantoms and ghosts, by spraying his Holy Water, so highly reputed for its Abti-Black-Magick powers.

Apart from this, many soldiers would come to ask for his Takrut and monk Coin necklace to wear into battle for Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud protectio in their duty guarding the borders of the Nation. Luang Phu’s amulets became the talk of the nation, and entered the news for the many miraculous tales told by devotees who wore them. Luang Phu was then overwhelmed with the needs of the many devotees.

And so in the year 2515 BE, Luang Phu gave permission for the Kana Looksit comittee of devotees of the temple, to create an official edition of amulets for Metta Mahaniyom, Maha Lap, Klaew Klaad Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud Kaa Khaay Magic to help both those in need of protection, and those in need of prosperity, The Rian Roop Muean 1st edition Monk Coin was created iin numbers of 7000 amulets, with 7000 Takrut on cords for attachment to the coins.

In the year 2522 BE, the second edition Rian Sema was released, along with the Takrut Tone Koo Nuea Tong Daeng, so jealously guarded by the Devotees of this Inimitably pure and diligent monk, Luang Phu Jiam.

In the year 2537, Somdej pra Nang Jao Pra Boroma Rachininath Her Majesty the Queen of Thailand traveled to visit Luang Phu Jiam in a personal manner to discuss the Dhamma. On that occasion, Luang Phu Jiam gave a Pra Kring Roop Muean ‘Run Rap Sadej’ (Royal Visitation Edition) amulet to Her Majesty as a Memento, from the edition he had made for this occasion.

IN the year 2546, Luang Phu Jiam gave permission once more to create a new edition of amulets, called the ‘Run Munlaniti Adtisayō’ (Adtisayo Foundation Inauguration Edition).. This edition was marked especially of interest, as it which was made in the ancient ‘Lor Boran’ method of alchemical metallurgy.

When counting the official editions made by Luang Phu Jiam himself, and those made by his Devotee Comittee, somewhere around 50 different editions of amulets can be confirmed to exist. His amulets are far and few to come across these days, and are highly treasured by those who have the good fortune and honour to possess one of the amazing amulets of Luang Phu Jiam Adtisayō.

On Friday 1st September 2549 BE, Luang Phu Jiam passed away, and the Monks of Wat Intrasukaram sounded the gong to let the devotees know that they had lost their beloved Kroo Ba Ajarn, who had passed on to the next Realm of existence.He was cremated after a 15 day period of mourning where he was placed on show in a glass coffin for his devotees to bid farewell and receive his blessings from beyond the grave.

This Takrut is highly unusual and attractive for the giligent method of ‘Sorng Kasat’ Magic, which requires two separate sacred geometry Spells to be inscribed on two different types of Metallic substance, and rolled together into one scroll and spellbound into a single Wicha, this makes the creation and empowerment much more complex than the Wicha for simple Takrut Tone made from one single scroll.

The Takrut bailan Pitsamorn of Luang Por Gaew (2393 – 2462 BE) is an amulet that is over a century old and is considered an eminent member of the ‘Gao Yang Tee Kuan Mee Dtid Gaay’ (Nine Sacred amulets which one should wear for perfect blessings), of olden days, which was a famous proverbial saying of devotees of amulets in Thailand in olden times.

This exhibit below, is a perfect example of the classic and most commonly accepted Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn of Luang Por gaew being round like a wheel with a hole in the middle and wrapped with Sinjana cords, red ancient Chinese lacquer (Rak Chart), and gold leaf.

This exhibit can be considered ‘Tae Doo Ngaay’ (very easy to see its authenticity and true age), from the darkened hardened lacquer and depth of immersion of the gold leaf. The appearance of the amulet possesses exactly the right signs of natural ageing to authenticate its age as being from the Era of Luang Por Gaew, and its materials and style of making is inimitably supportive of this, which gives a 100% certainty of authenticity for this amulet.

The amulet should be worn on a neck-chain or at the lowest point above the waist, as it contains Bailan parchment scrolls with Buddhist Prayers, and should not be worn below the waist. The Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn of Luang Por Gaew is considered one of the top Nine amulets of all time of the ‘Krueang Rang’ Talismanic Charm category of Thai Amulets, famed for its Kong Grapan Chadtri Klaew Klaad and Metta Maha Niyom powers.

Luang Por Gaew made his Takrut Bailan from Bailan that came from the village of Bang Pern, whose name means ‘Block Guns’ and is part of how he began the empowerment of Maha Ud and Kong Grapan Chadtri within the parchment scrolls before inscription. When his devotees who he would ask to go toe bang Pern to cut Bailan parchment for him to inscribe, they would ask ‘why do we have to travel so far to get Bailan parchment when it grows nearby?’. Luang Por Gaew would always say ‘if you want the best of the best, sometimes you have to travel far and wide to find it, and if you dont go to get it, then you wont ever have the good stuff’

Luang Por Gaew would inscribe the Bailan leaves with the Khom letter ‘MI’ and encircle it with inscriptions of the Kata Hua Jai Suea Saming Were Tiger Invocation (Phū Pi Phū Pa) in Sacred Khom Agkhara Characters. The Hua Jai Suea saming is also known as the Hua Jai See Sahaay (four friends heart Mantra).

The strange thing is, that as Luang Por Gaew was gathering the materials in his Kuti to inscribe the Takrut, the birds in the forest were making lots of noise chirping and calling out. But as soon as Luang Por Gaew began his inscriptions, they all fell silent. As he finished the last one, and closed the ceremony, the birds of the forest all began to resound with loud calls and birdsong again immediately!!!

Luang Por Gaew delcared this to be a confirmation and sign that the spell within the Takrut possessed Maha Ud power, to silence (guns and enemies). The Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn is especially famopus for this Kong Grapan Chadtri power, but in addition is also highly regarded for Klaew Klaad and Maha Lap Serm Duang Metta Maha Niyom mercy Charm.

This revealed that Luang Por gaew knew that the Bailan of Bang Pern had special powers which is not found in all Bailan fields, and that the village of Bang Pern did not get its name for no reason, for the earth powers within this municipality defeated the powers of gunpowder, through a high presence of gunstopper minerals in the earth.

The Takrut Bailan Pitsamorn is one of the most ancient forms of Takrut, and is considered very powerful protection against all forms of danger, including physical harm against sharp objects that pierce the skin (Kong Grapan Chadtri), Anti Ballistic Weaponry (Maha Ud), evade accidents (Klaew Klaad), against poisonous wild animals (Pongan Sadtw Raay), Anti Black Magick (Gae Aathan) and Ghosts and Demons (Gan Phuudt Phii Pisaj).

Presenting a Legendary Ancient Takrut Hnang Suea Kong Grapan Chadtri Tiger amulet, over a Century Old, made from Hnaa Pak Suea, wrapped with cord binding and Rak Chaat red lacquer, from the Great Olden days Guru Master, Luang Por Glan, of Wat Prayatikaram, in Ayuttaya’.

Luang Por Glan was known to be highly Adept with a large number of Magical Wicha, be it the Wicha Fan Dab (Swordfighting), or the Science and Art of fighting with Ancient Weaponry. Luang Por had Mastered the Secret Ancient Wicha Kong Grapan Chadtri, of the Olden days Sorceror Warriors, who used Magic to protect them in Wars. This Takrut is Wicha Suea Tiger Skin Wicha and is powerful Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Amnaj.

Luang Por Glan’s Fame for Magical prowess caused many people to come and satisfy their curiosity as to whether Luang Por’s Magic was as powerful as rumour had it, and would come to the temple to test him out. Luang Por Glan always knew beforehand and sensed it, when a devotee was approaching to try to test his Magic and his Abilities.

One day a very influential and feared ‘Nak Leng’ (Mafia Gangster) from another Province, came to ask to test his Wicha, and Luang Por Glan agreed, and began by inviting the gangster to shoot at a piece of white cloth Luang Por would throw into the air.

The gangster shot at it, but the cocked hammer fell on the bullet and the bullet remained in the gun. The only sound was that of the metal Hammer of the gun hitting against the bullet. Then Luang Por asked the Gangster to shoot into the sky, which he did, and the gun fired as normal, with a very loud bang. Luang Por Glan then told the Gangster to shoot at another piece of white cloth, and threw it into the air. The Gangster fired at it, but once more, the gun clicked, the bullet remained in the gun, and the devotees gasped in amazement, as did the Gangster. The Gangster was filled with respect and reverence, and prostrated in humble appreciation of the powerful magic of Luang Por Glan.

Below, some of the inimitable styles of cord wrap used by the various artisans of the preferred models of Takrut Luang Por Glan

Another famous Wicha of Luang Por Glan, was the Wicha Look Bao (Wicha Chadtri). The wicha Look Bao is a Wicha based in Kong Grapan Yuu Kong Invincibility magic. This Wicha would allow very heavy objects to be placed onto a person, but the objects will feel light and weightless, and be unable to crush the person.

The Wicha was proven with Luang Por Glan’s devotees by performing the test pf throwing a very heavy stone onto the devotee after the Wicha was administered to them (usually as a Sak Yant Tattoo or as a Spell blown onto the devotee). The wight of the stones would be enough to break the neck of any person under usual circumstances, but the devotees would feel nothing. This became the method of finalising the spell by throwing the stone onto the devotee after receiving the blessing, as the ‘Khuen Kroo’ ritual, to invoke the Guru (Kroo Ruesi) to protect and bless the devotee.

Luang Por Glan , was the Kroo Ba Ajarn of the Great Luang Por An, who inherited the position of Abbot of Wat Prayat after the passing of Luang Por Glan. Luang Por Glan was one of the Greatest Masters of his Era, continuing the Ancient Wicha from his truly Olden days Kroo Ba Ajarn LP Muang who he inherited , at Wat Pradoo Song Tam.

It is said that the Great Luang Por An (Wat Prayatikaram), was once practicing Vipassana Kammathana Mindfulness Meditations in the Uposatha Shrineroom at Wat prayat during the time that he was still practicing under the tutelage of Luang Por Glan, and that, as he was meditating in the Uposatha, he saw Luang Por Glan walk in, sit down in front of him, and start speaking to teach him some more advanced methods.

The strange thing was, that Luang Por An knew that Luang Por Glan was over in the Kuti Building conversing with Devotees who had come to beseech his Wisdom and Spiritual Advice. he then realised that Luang Por Glan was able to be in two places at the same time, by sending a nimitta vision of himself into the Uposadha to teach his apprentice Luang Por An!

Luang Por Glan

The Takrut of Luang Por Glan are highly renowned for their immense Kong Grapan Chadtri Maha Ud power, and are known to be empowered with the Kata and Yant Pra Puttakun, Pra Tammakun, Pra Sangkakun (Pra Trai Soranakom), the Wicha of the Kata Pra Baramee 30 Tat, and the Wicha Pra Jao Sip Chaat (10 Jataka).
