AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF LUANG PHOR SODH WAT PAKNAM

                     THAILAND ONE OF THE TOP TALISMANS EVER CONSECRATED

                                                LUANG PHOR SODH - WAT PAKNAM


                                                                            

                                           LUANG SODH, WAT PAKNAM






Luang Phor Sodh was born on 10th October 1884 (BE 2427) to a simple and humble rice merchant family of Supanburi. In the olden days in Thailand, due to poverty most children in the rural areas received their education from the temples, Luang Phor was no exception. At the age of 14 when his father died, he became the chief breadwinner for his family. Even with the success that he had in rice trading, he was not contented with money alone, hence, at the age of 22, he decided to enter the monkhood.

Luang Phor Sodh was ordained at Wat Songpeenong near his hometown. Phra Ajahn Dee of Wat Pratusam, Supanburi was his main Preceptor. The day after his ordination, Luang Phor began his meditation practice and the study of the Pali scriptures. He was in desperate search for deeper knowledge in mediation and magical sciences , then he went to Wat Bodhi, Bangkok where he studied more in depth .

Due to his mastery over the techniques of meditation and the diligent practice, he was made a meditation instructor by his teachers, Phra Khru Yanavirati (Po) of Wat Bodhi and Phra Ajahn Singha of Wat Lakorn.

On the full-moon day of September, in his twelfth year as a monk, Luang Phor prepared himself for meditation, he invoked illumination and guidance and made a vow dedicating to Buddhism. Luang Phor vowed not to rise from his seat infront of the Buddha statue until he attained some understanding of the Dhamma as taught by the Buddha.

With his mind set and his components of vision, memory and thought and cognition all at rest at the centre of his body, joints of the middle finger above the navel, Luang Phor was able to penetrate the full depths of the Dhamma as it was revealed by the Buddha. The revelation of the Dhamma and ever more refined Dhammakayas (Dhamma Bodies) was so profound that it was only possible when the mind was at rest at the body's centre. Upon the success of accomplishing the Dhammakaya, Luang Phor devoted his time and effort almost exclusively to teaching meditation. His disciples multiplied into the thousands. It was not uncommon for revered monks in far corners of the country, who apparently never met Luang Phor before, came to know him and respect him as their mentor.

The Dhammakaya is a very supernatural Dhamma, even its basic and intermediate level could bring about "miracles" (such as foreseeing the future, controlling and changing the weather, healing illnesses that modern medicine can't cure, finding and detecting lost objects, going and regressing back to past lives and many other supernatural accomplishments. One who practises Dhammakaya will be protected from black magic and also able to return the black magic to the sorcerer).

LUANG PHOR - TEACHING DHAMMAKAYA MEDITATION

The fundamental of the Dhammakaya knowledge is making the body's centre (inner abdomen at the navel) as clear as crystal. The technique to do this is moving an imaginative crystal ball moving downwards from the forehead to the navel, then focus on the inner centre of the crystal ball and go deeper and deeper. The practitioner will pass through the 18 astral bodies from coarse to subtle. At the 18th astral body, called Dhammakaya Arahant, the crystal Buddha will appear. One who attains this state could travel out of the body (astral travel).

The year 1950 (B.E. 2493) Luang Phor Sodh started creating amulets as the gifts for donors who assisted him to in donating towards the construction of the Dhamma school. Large amount of money was needed for the construction. The monks at Wat Paknam at that time was worried about the project as they taught that raising such a huge amount was not possible.

But Luang Phor said "You all don't worry, that's my duty to do it for you. Please make your mind calm and be diligent in the practice of Dhammakaya that I have taught you. Even it's a large building and requires a large amount of money to construct. I do not work alone. Dhammakaya  comes to help me and will bring me tons of money. So don't worry, you just wait and see".

It's was a miracle and the prophecy of Luang Phor came true when the temple was flooded with people from all over the country willing to donate to the construction of the school. One who donated 25 Thai Baht will receive the talisman from Luang Phor's own hands. Even a millionaire who donated thousands of Thai Baht, he will only get one talisman as well. His nephew, the late Supreme Patriarch (Somdet Pa of Wat Bodhi) asked him "Why you gave the millionaire only one amulet? He donated a huge amount of money, you could have given him more than 10 talismans, couldn't you?"

Luang Phor said "You know nothing, the talisman is an invaluable object, it's more valuable than any sum of money. One who receives the most sacred talisman(Wat Paknam) of this kind will be rich and possesses the equivalent worth a billion Thai Baht."

He was strict in distributing of the talisman that no second talisman will be given to the same receiver. Once the Supreme Patriarch Somdet Pa gave away his on amulet to a boy, he later requested a new one from Luang Phor, but Luang Phor never gave him.

Luang Phor Sodh blessed the talismans by inviting all the Buddhas to gather and charge the sacred power into the talismans through the 3 month Lent period (Rainy Retreat). He said "All Buddhas of every epochs gathered around and blessed the talisman non-stop for 3 months. After finishing, all they said was that these talismans are the greatest talismans created in this world!!!"

HOW TO  USE LUANG PHOR SODH - WAT PAKNAM'S TALISMAN AMULET)?

He taught that the owner (person wearing the talisman) should gaze at the talisman and remember it. And then place the picture (through imagination) of the talisman at the navel and recite the mantra
"SAMMA ARHANG" continuously.

Focus your mind at the centre of the image. Stop your mind right there and then dive deeper and deeper into the centre point and never turn back. Eventually, the image will automatically be changed to be a crystal-like Buddha, then focus your mind at the navel of the Buddha. The Buddha image will the sparkled and will appear. At this stage, you breathe slightly and slowly. Now you can pray for what you want to "wish" from the Lord Buddha. This is one of the most effective method of having your "wishes" fulfilled!
