The Biography of Luang Phor Num, Wat Don Sala
Luang Phor Num
His mother passed away when he was a mere child. His father however, was a Kalawat Ajarn
When he was 20 years old, he was ordained at Wat Khao Aor temple. He studied the Buddhist Scriptures for 6 10.Pansa
In 1963, Luang Phor became seriously ill and nearly died. A consulting psychic made contact with the spirit of a monk of Wat Khao Aor (other sources claim that Luang Phor Num dreamed about Phra Ajarn Thong Thao) who said that the only way he could get well was to ordain as a monk. Luang Phor Num promised that if he got well, he would immediately dedicate the rest of his life to the Sangha and the Dhamma.
Miraculously, the clouds of his near-fatal brush with death cleared, and he was restored to the pink of health. He once again ordained at Wat Don Sala
On 8th September 1977, he received a Royal Cremation Ceremony, presided over by King Rama 9. A fitting show of status, for a master many considered to have been an Arahant.
Luang Phor Num was schooled in Wicha by his father, himself a student of Wat Khao Aor, just like Phra Ajarn Thong Thao. His father however, considered himself a layman, and did not personally craft amulets, choosing to instead simply participate in the consecration processes. His father’s marriage, and his commitments to family life, ensured that he never crossed the rubicon into amulet-making.
The loss of his mother devastated his father, and he was never the same. Unable to further his son’s education in the mystical arts, he sent him to study under the tutelage of Phra Ajarn Thong Thao at Wat Khao Aor, knowing that only he could bring Luang Phor Num’s Wicha education to the next level.
Forseeing a bright future ahead of the young man who would surely grow into famous and honorable person, and worthy successor of his Wicha, Phra Ajarn Thong Thao agreed to teach him.
Luang Phor Num studied Wicha, and lived in Wat Khao Aor temple for 6 Pansa. Wat Khao Aor temple was not only his school, but also where he lay his roots, as he spent many of his formative years within its walls.
He came to absorb a comprehensive swathe of all the Wicha of Wat Khao Aor temple. He received direct, firsthand knowledge from the sacred scrolls, and renowned teachers of Wat Khao Aor temple. After Phra Ajarn Thong Thao passed away, he was chosen to inherit his Wicha lineage, and tasked with preserving and transmitting the sacred knowledge through successive generations.
The Amulet of Luang Phor Num
Luang Phor Num created a number of amulets, both on his own, as well as in collaboration with others, such as in B.E.2483, where he worked with Phra Kru Sitthiyaphirat (Eiat Pathumsaro)
In B.E.2512, he was also known for crafting 4 Phim
LP Num was said to have immense mental powers. His Pluksek process was said to bear witness to many instances of seeming telekinesis, with inanimate objects being moved great distances merely by the powers of his mind. These intense psychic powers were said to have stemmed from the training he had received since birth.
