Luang Phor Pae , Wat Phikhunthong

Birth of Luang Phor Pae:

Luang Phor Pae was born on the first of January in 1905. At the age of 8 months, Luang Phor Pae’s mother died.

He was then adopted by his uncle. At age 11, he studied a specialized language (Pali) to help interpret Buddhist’s text.

He studied Pali under Pra Ajan Som. When Luang Phor Pae turned 14, his uncle secured a spot for him at Chanosongkram temple in the heart of Bangkok. While he was there, Pae dedicated himself to Buddhist studies.

When LP Pae was 22, he officially became a monk. Later that year he became a teacher at Chanosongkram.

Later, in 1931, the abbot of Wat Pikul retired from his position and requested that LP take his place. At the young age of 26, LP Pae became the abbot of Wat Pikul.

While there, he also helped rebuild the temple as it was quite old and had not seen extensive repairs for years.  In addition to rebuilding the temple, LP Pae also housed, fed and cared for students who wished to attend the temple but who could not afford it.

Back in those days, there were plenty of young children whose parents could not afford to raise them or send them to schools.

So Luang Phor Pae as the abbot of Wat Pikulthong would take in all the children that are in need of help. He would raise them up and provide necessary education for them.

Luang Phor Pae also taught young children in school back in those days when he was staying in Wat Rakang.

Luang Phor Pae's amulets are kept by many Thais especially in Singburi and Bangkok areas because they respected him a lot for the things that he have done for them, especially the young children that grew up to adults, they kept many of his amulets as a respect to their teacher who cared for them since young.

Luang Phor Pae also consecrated many batches of Phra Somdej and other holy items for fundraising to the hospitals, charitable works like building of roads, schools and also the help to the elderly.

Luang Phor Pae passed away in BE 2542, at the age of 94. He had spent more than 70 years in monkhood. A commemorative funeral service was held at Wat Pikulthong under the patronage of the Thai Royal Family and several other dignitaries.

With great merits, Luang Phor Pae's fame continued to spread to all parts of the world even after he passed away for more than 10 years.

Good Cause (Amulets are created to help people in need), Chinabunchorn Blessings and a good teacher ((Luang Phor Pae), are some of the reasons why we should treasure his amulets.

Up to today, devotees of his would still go to Wat Pikulthong to pay respect to Luang Phor Pae as his body is well-kept in the coffin. And although Luang Phor Pae as passed on many years ago, devotees and people still remember him well.

Miracle 1

When he was 33 years old, he created his first amulets. After this point, LP Pae was well-known as a monk who was skilled in amulet-making. 

There are many stories describing the success and protection from those wearing LP Pae’s amulets. One such story includes a man who lived on a secluded mountain.

He traveled to the city in order to procure one of LP Pae’s amulets. His family was not poor, but they wished for a better life.

Soon after putting on amulet, the old man immediately had an idea to install a water filter and pump in the spring near his home.

He was unsure of how this would help him, but he decided to follow the inspiration.

Once the spring was set up, the old man’s city saw so many visitors that it grew into bustling (but small town) the man was credited with the success of his village and his family was taken care of.

Miracle 2:

2517 Phra Somdej Phim Jackie


Another interesting story involving LP Pae’s amulets is that the famous movie star, Jackie Chan, wore one of LP Pae’s amulets during many of films.

During one strenuous filming day, Chan was at the top of a high clock tower. Miraculously, he survived with no injuries – a fact which many attribute to him wearing LP Pae’s amulet.

The Famous Yant BudhSon:

The Yant BudhSon which is the only main major Yant logo that LP Pae used for almost all of his amulets since BE 2482 until BE 2539 (nearly sixty years).

From early BE 2482, LP Pae used only the plain Yant BudhSon for his amulets, but after BE 2500 he added up 2 more Khom letters Ang and U over the Yant BudhSon. 

Yant BudhSon is a major Yant of Somdej Phra Wannarat (Daeng)BE 2365-2443, the 3rd Abbot of Wat Suthat. Later his 2 students Somdej Phra Sangkharaj (Pae)BE 2399-2487 and Phra BaidikaKliang also used this Yant for their amulets creation and including another 2 famous Guru Monk of Wat Suthat, ChaoKhun Sri (Sondh) and LP Supot. 

LP Pae of Wat Phikulthong was a close student of Phra BaidikaKliang, and the Yant BudhSon was taught and transmitted to him by his Master.

LP Pae firmly used this Yant BudhSon for his amulets creation for nearly 60 years that covering all contents viz. medallions, holy powder, baked clay, metal mini statue, ivory, Kring, payan, etc.....

 LP Pae highly respected Somdej Phra Buddhacharn Toh (Somdej Toh) of Wat Rakhang and all his amulets was blessed by him with Chinabunchorn Katha of Somdej Toh.

This is the greatest Katha mantra of all, which Somdej Toh receive from an old scroll from Sri Lanka. LP Pae passed away in BE 2542 at the age of 94

Phoong Ittijay 

One of the main powder used by Luang Por Pae in all his Phra Somdej amulets , Phoon Ittijay is one of the 5 mains powder of Somdej Wat Rakang , know for Metta Maha Niyom (Grace Popularity and Loving Kindess) 

The making of this 5 mains powder require very high meditation and cultivate of the master. 

Five kinds of sacred powders namely Pattamung, Ittijay, Maharaj, Puttakun and Treenisinghe. The process starts with incantation of Holy Scriptures, writing sutras and holy symbols (yantra) with chalk on a slate board, erased and rewrote several hundred times over and over again. 

This first collected powder is called Pattamung (Protection, Kongkrapan) 

Pattamung powder is then mixed with water to mold into a pencil shape, sun-dried and the used in writing another chapter of sutras. The process of writing and erasing is repeated as many times as stipulated in the holy sutras. The dust gathered from the second rite is Ittijay (Grace Popularity and Loving Kindess) the same process is performed until all five ingredients have been collected.

Phoong Trinisinghae (Overcome obstacle, Improve luck)

Katha Chinabunchorn

Phra Katha Chinabunchorn Mantra is chanted by almost everybody in Thailand, and is considered to be one of the most Sacred Kata available for Chanting.

The scripture text consolidated the divine powers of Budhha, the 500 Arahant and the Immortals from Heaven to protect those who recite the scripture text.

How did this Katha come about? There are three different version of history linking it to either Phra Somdej Toh of Wat Rakang Kositaram or otherwise.

However we will be only stick to this version is the Chinabunchorn Mantra is given to Phra Somdej Toh by a Sri Lanka Buddhism monk on a visit to Thailand.

Luang Por Pae is from the direct linage of Ajarn Toh student Luang Por Pu whom is the abbot of famous Wat Intaram (Wat Inn)

Which is the reason why Luang Por Pae can successfully consecrate amulets using Katha Chinabunchorn and able to create Powder Phoong Ittijay using traditional Ajarn Toh Methods! 

the meaning of Jinapanjara (Chinabunchorn) is 'the armor of the Buddha'. Jinapanjara is the combination of two words, Jina meaning 'the winner', which is the Buddha, and Panjara meaning 'cage'.

Thus, Jinapanjara means 'the cage (which is strong as a piece of armor) that can protect from any dangers and enemies'

Katha Chinabunchorn:
