An Introduction: Luang Por Parn

Luang Por Parn Sunantoe, his real name is Pra Kroo Wiharagijjanugarn. He was
born in 1875 (BE 2418.), the youngest son of Mr. Aaj and Mrs. Im Sutawongs. During
his younger age, he received the a nickname of "Parn", because of a red Birthmark on
the little finger of his left hand, which was seen as an unusual trait mark that linked with
Buddhism. LP Parn received his Ordination as a Bikkhu*(Buddhist Monk) on the First
of April 1895 (BE 2438).
Luang Phor Parn is worshiped as one of the Top 10 Greatest Guru Monks of presentday in Thailand & many worshippers all around the world. 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 un-decayed. When
Luang Phor Parn passed away in B.E.2480, his body was also un-decayed similar to his
Guru teachers.
In 1932, five years before he passed away, he announced to all 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 preannounced. Luang Phor Parn was a meditative Guru Monk
and also possessed magical knowledge. During Buddhist Dhamma, it was recorded that
he reached the Great six knowledge of miracles. So he possesses knowledge on
precognition, out-of-body ability, mind detecting, ability to do comprehensive paranormal
phenomena activities etc.

Apart from this, he also possesses the highest state of Wipassana or knowledge of mind
cleaning to stop next rebirth (Reincarnation). It was his great Dhamma practice that had
cleaned and "distilled" his inner body (astral body) to crystal-like state which changed his
body's cells immortal. Many great Guru Monks in Thailand hinted their Dhamma levels
to their disciples in such way.
Luang Phor Parn's famous amulets have marked long-time uncountable records in
warding off dangers of all kinds. And it's great for making holy water for healing illness
that modern physician not able to diagnose & cure. Luang Phor Parn's amulets are
extremely unique with Buddha sitting on a Garuda, Hanuman, Porcupine, Fish, Fighter
cock and Bird.

Once Luang Phor Parn told his disciples that his amulets had been blessed for a period
of three months, it's long time more than enough to charge Buddha's power into amulets
capable of warding off dangers of all kinds. He said that if they were blessed for 3 years,
the Garuda and the Bird on the amulet would fly out. (A real life news reporting of bird
image flew out from the amulet was published in a Malaysia Chinese newspaper; A
shops CCTV of the amulets owner recorded the flying bird flying around his shop and
flew back into the drawer where the amulet was kept.)
Luang Phor Parn's amulets are very popular among Thai amulets users and collectors
because of their frequent miraculous phenomena both recorded and unrecorded

and Vipassana, along with various Buddha Magic methods under the Supervision of LP**
Sun; Specializing in the topics of curing illness, physical aches and pains, and also curing
people who were under the bad influence of black magic & harmful spells. He attained
the level of "Adept" extremely quickly.

Supervision of "Ajarn Jeen", from Wat Jao Jed; then continued his studies at Wat

powerful magic.
The Secret of "Yant Grao Paetch", or "Diamond Armour / Diamonjd Shield Yantra" as it
has come to be known in the English language, was obtained from "Ajarn jaeng", a lay
Practitioner and Master of Yant and Buddha magic.
After completion of his training, Luang Por Parn inaugurated the Pali Sanskrit and
Dharma school at Wat Bang Nom Kho. Apart from this, he assisted in the building and
development of up to forty Temples around Thailand, including the additional
construction of Shrines for other Temples that were already in existence (known as Bote

Buddhism and spreading of the dharma on such a massive scale.
After Completion of his studies under Luang Por Sun, he performed "Tudongk"
(Wandering alone deep through the Jungle). He wandered as far as the frontier to Burma,
and encountered various strange Phenomena during his journey. Those strange encounters
became legends and many people who read LP Parns "Tudongk" stories find it amazing

Luang Por Parn with his Parent

(Mother & Father)

Picture of LP Parn with his Mother and Father, who he cared for in her
old age and times of illness.
Even though LP Parn was abbot of Wat Bang Nom Kho temple. He
brought them to the Temple and allowed them to stay in his Guthi,
taking care and feeding them, and often wash his mother's clothing,
regardless of his High status and amount of work he had to perform, he
always make up time to take care his Parent.
In Buddhist teachings, one's Mother is seen as the most sacred person
in Life, due to the pain she goes through in giving Birth to us, the
worry when our young age and care she has for us as her children.

the meaning of dedication to the Triple gem (Buddha Dharma and
Sangha)the fourth stick is to dedicate to one's Mother and father, the
fifth to the Kroo ba Ajarn, meaning Spiritual Teacher.

Greatest Katha for Wealth and Fortune Rich Katha

The reason why I setup this website is to specially dedicate and spread Luang Por
Parns teaching around the world as I was benefited from his teaching and the katha.

A special thanks to Mr. Lek Watruak of Thai Amulets for his kind assistance that
resolved some doubts I am having. I will continue my life journey with this Katha &
Luang Por Parns teaching.

As per like Mr. Lek of Thai Amulets mentioned, this Katha is Beyond any law of
physics and any words to explain. All you have to do is to practice the Rich Katha and
sense it by your very own self. When Mr. Lek tried to publish this Katha onto the
Internet for world people to learn, he had failed 2 times -- his computer system collapsed
and he had to re-format his hard disk and the audio hardware needed for sound Katha and
was permanently dysfunction. According to Mr. Lek he suspect that the Mara(evils)
tried to obstruct him to perform an important task for the Great Guru. The more people
get richer, the less preys for the Mara to govern. Mr. Lek is very happy that the important
Katha of the Great Guru was correctly inscribed on the huge stone -- The Internet !! MAY
The Katha named Phra PajjekkaBodhi Prod Satwa. It's a greatest Katha for attracting
wealth and fortune to practitioners. When LP Parn was still alive, he respected this

Katha very much. When he walks in or out of his Kuti (monk house) he will raise his
hands up Namaskar this Katha and chanting it. If LP Parn goes anywhere, he will teach
this Katha to any people. After teaching, he would say " From now onwards my sons, you
will be rich by this Katha, you farmers will gain more crops and bigger fruits, and no
insects disturb your grows any more." Farmers who practice this Katha gain a lot of crops
more than ever. Fruits are bigger in size than ever, bananas as big as the adult hand, the
melon, as big as a jar. LP Parn brings those abnormal sizes fruits to his temple and
shows to people.
Merchants practice this Katha can sell his goods like hot cakes, making a lot of profit.
But when counts the products stock, they still left much more than it should be even the
products were sold a large amount. It means that the stocks are added up unknowingly
more by the influence of this Katha.
Employees and civil servants practice this Katha, they will work happily, and the works
are always admired by their master. Moreover the position is shifted to higher level
meanwhile gaining more salary. Therefore, the Katha is meant for wealth and fortune.
Whoever chants it until becoming the stage of Smadhi, bigger wealth and fortune will
come to that person.
Mr.Prayong Tangtrongchit, an important layman disciple of LP Parn, was a poor
herbal medicine shop owner, one day he heard LP Parn teaching this Katha to a monk of
Wat Saket. After the teaching session ended, Mr Prayong ask LP Parn that he would
like to learn this Katha. "Good, my son, within two years from now onwards you will be
a millionaire," said LP Parn.

Mr.Prayong Tangtrongchit

Mr. Prayong practices this Katha daily in the morning, evening and before going to bed .
After 6 month, he reports to LP Parn, "Luang Phor, my herbal medicine sell very good, I
gained a lot of money, but so strange that the medicine are still remained in a big stock
even I have sold many. I bought in rice for daily consumption and is just used half the
quantity only, even my wife prepared the rice at normal quantity as usual."
The effects go far beyond than that, Mr.Prayong said, "I can't compare to my grand
mother who also practice this Katha. She always practices it until becoming a Smadhi.
One day a huge sum of money miraculously filled into an empty safe. Before the money
runs into the safe, there is a strange voice saying, "stay quietly and don't move, the money
is running into your safe."
"My grand mother told me that after a striking sound, she rush to open the safe. Sitting
there, an empty safe filled fully with money. She said to me: Don't worry now, if the
Luang Phor (Parn) need money to buy materials for construction, just tell me -- I will
donate. The more we donate, the more comfortable we will be," said Mr.Prayong.
Mr.Prayong later became a very rich man, he was named the greatest philanthropist of
Thailand. He donated as much as LP Parn needed for construction of many temples. " If
Luang Phor need money please don't be hesitated to tell me, I will donate as much as
you required," said Mr.Prayong to LP Parn.
Before LP Parn passed away, he teaches The Rich Katha to many layman disciples.
LP said: "Don't do evils but do good. Our life is not so long, we just come to this
world in a short period and then go. The 5 precepts of the Buddha should be
practiced, if one cannot practice all, I request for 2 of them - Don't steal and Don't
drink liquor. If you can practice this 2 precepts as well as the Phra PajjekkaBodhi
Prod Satwa Katha, you will earn well and live with a happy life," said LP Parn.
Luang Phor Chaai of Wat PananChoeng (Sam Po Kong), Ayuthaya, a Great Guru during
the WWII period also practise this Katha to bless his temple everyday to draw Buddhists
come to his temple and donate money for renovation. He gained a great success at wish
by the miracle of this Katha.

Luang Por Parn

Original Script of Rich Katha

The Rich Katha:

Na Mo Tassa Bhakhawato Arahato Samma Sambudh Tassa (Repeat X3 times)
Buddha Ma Aa U Na Mo Budh Dha Ya (1 time)
Wira Dhayo Wira Konayang Wira Hingsa Wira Dhasi Wira Dhasa Wira Ittiyo
Buddhassa Manee Mama Buddhassa Swahom (Main Katha: Repeat X3, X5, X7,or
X9 times)
(**When you want to repeat the Katha, just start with the main Katha: Wira Dhayo Wira
Konayang..... so on!)
When you start practicing this Katha, you should start with 3 times for the core Katha
(Wira Dhayo....). Until you chant fluently, you may chant more times. But it is a must to
keep the times of chanting constantly in some long period before shifting to more
additive step. Or you may keep 3 times forever.
But as on Mr.Prayong's practice, he chanted 9 times. Daily chanting on this Katha will
make your earning & living significantly better in some degree, the money from your
work efforts is enough for expenses -- if the household money run low, new wealth will
come in time to support. But for the best result -- you must chant this Katha until
becoming Smadhi stage -- and bigger wealth & fortune will come to you.


Important** Reminders &Tips

For best result when practicing this Katha:

3. Present food to monk at least once daily. Some places are inconvenient to do this, you
can do an option by donate money (any sum you would like to) to a can. If the can fills

with moderate sum of money, please bring it to donate to Buddhist temple for monks
4. The main principle on practicing this Katha is--chant it until becoming a Smadhi (mind
concentration). The higher Smadhi you reach, the more wealth and fortune will come.
You can practice this Katha in every action, standing, walking, sitting, and working.
When you want to repeat the Katha, just start with the main Katha: Wira Dhayo Wira
5. Before bringing out the money to use, touch that money and chant the Katha the same
times as your usual practice. And in the night before parking your money into the drawer,
chant this Katha the same times as your usual practice.
6. If anyone would like to learn this Katha, please teach him because this is the will of the
great Guru.
7. If all these done, the practicer will get more and more wealth and fortune.
Diamond Armour Yant - "Yant Grao Paetch"!
Luang Por Parn was well known for his Buddha Magic and Buddhist medicine &
healing methods. He creates powerful amulets during the Buddhist year 2460 (1917).
He was famous for finding the extremely well known and powerful Katha / Yant (mantra)
of Grao Paetch in the Buddhist year 2458 whilst making a pilgrimage to Suphanburi
province. Famous for his discovery of the Sacred
Luang Por Parn found this great Khata as he was meditating and a Yaan (or Yana in Pali
Panskrit), meaning supernatural sense, occurred in his meditation. It told him that there
was a special magical metal template hidden within the main Chedi of Wat Phra Sri
Ratana Maha Taath, Suphanburi province, waiting for him to discover.
Not long after that he reached the Chedi and found an ancient silver template engraved
with the Kata of Yant Graopaetch. The template had a message explaining that the person
who found it shall be a Great Master, and that Heaven had defined who should find it.
The Template also describes that one who recites this Kata everyday shall have his body
covered with a Diamond Armour and will be protected from all dangers, he shall never be
able to be destroyed by his enemies. In addition, the enemy will be destroyed through a
strange phenomenon because of the reflective result from the magic Diamond Armour !

The Diamond Armour Yant: Chant everyday

I Ra Chaa Ka Tha Ra Saa

Thi Hang Ja Thoe Roe Ti Nang
Bi Sam Ra Loe Bu Sa Put
Soe Ma Na Ga Ri Taa Toe
Pa Samm Samm Wi Sa Tae Pa
Ka Put ban tuu tam wa ka
Waat Toe Noe A Ma Ma Waa
A Wich Su Nut Saa Nuth Thi



Base on Mr. Spencers contact experiences with Wat Bang Nom Kho. In
any year that had the auspicious Sao Ha day (Saturday, the fifth day of
the waxing moon period, lunar month), Luang Phor Phan would
perform a very special Ceremony, consecrating and embedding Yant
Grao Paetch into his thousands of disciples gathering in Wat Bang Nom
Kho temple.
Luang Por would write the Khata on a blackboard and tell everybody
to choose one letter of the script NA-MO-PUT-TAA-YA (five Aspects of
the Buddha). Then he would stand behind the blackboard and recite a
Khata to push the letters and imprint them on all devotees. If a

recipient really had good meditative skills, one of the letters would
become embedded onto his skull for his whole life.
Amazingly, it was observed that when one of these devotees died and
was brought into cremation, the script clearly appeared upon the
forehead of the persons skull when the remains were inspected.
Khata Yant Graopaetch requires daily recitation. If this is done, the
person reciting will be perfectly protected from all dangers even deadly
events and will never be able to harm you.
The Current Abbot (and Ubachaya - meaning that he is empowered to
ordain others into monkdom) of the Temple is called Phra Kroo
Suwatjirayaaporn, or Hlwong Por Yong for short. Mr. Spencer was lucky
enough to receive the opportunity to visit him in his Guthi (Guthi is the
name for the room/hut where a monk resides).

Wat Bang Nom Kho (Thai: ) is a Buddhist temple (Wat)

located in the Sena district of Ayutthaya Province, Thailand. (North
76KM from Bangkok)
The temple was made famous by one of Thailand's Gaeji Ajarn high
monks, Luang Pho Phan, 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
Pho Phan in a dream, which led him to its discovery on a metal
template hidden within a Chedi. Luang Pho Phan 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.

About Sena district of Ayutthaya province

Usually local people knows and calls Sena as Ban Phaen(Thai ). Its city boasts a
clocktower in the center of town, which has a clock on all four sides. Also, there is a
weekly temple market on Tuesday nights, where countless vendors can be seen selling
everything from puppies to mobile phone accessories to movie and music posters at a
discount price. There is a coconut shop across the street from the temple market called
Mukda Shop that sells fresh coconut drinks.
There is also a secondary school known as Senaprasit School that features yearly Sports
Days - three days that fall between Christmas and New Year's. The students dress in
