Upon entering the town, he saw people making Khaw Lam (sticky rice mixed with coconut milk and black bean cooked inside bamboo). He asked for the food from the hawker, who promptly fainted at the sight of him. Young Suk’s forest ordeal had perhaps left him more than a little disheveled.
Young Suk deeply regretted the state of his life. He reflected on the trouble he had caused, and the consequences his actions had yet to bear. In his heart, he knew that the gang life would only get progressively worse, full of hardship and suffering.
Turning over a new leaf
Young Suk’s status as a fugitive began to die down after some years, and he decided to abandon his old ways, and ordain as a monk. He went to seek the help of his brother, Phra Kaen
Achieving the fruits of Meditation
Luang Phor Thongsuk was proficient in katha and wicha. It was well known that he was able to help deranged or mentally unsound people regain their senses. He gain respect from many people as a result.
Another incident occurred at his temple. The relatives of a possessed woman brought her to the temple to seek the monk’s help. Upon reaching the temple, one of the relatives hurried ahead to speak to Luang Phor, while the rest remained at the sala. Upon hearing of what had transpired, the monk closed his eyes and recited some katha. According to the account, the monk entered a state of intense mental focus (samadhi), where he conversed with the spirit who had possessed the lady. He recited katha to enable to spirit to end its anguish and turmoil, and pass over into the afterlife, and the possession was instantly lifted.

Luang Phor Thongsuk was famous for wicha Bpow Kramom (the “blowing spells” of Maha Ut and Kongkrapan Nang Neow, that render a user invulnerable to attacks from weapons, after being “blown” onto their heads. He is also known to sakyant around your nipple, making the invulnerability permanent.
He was also renowned for wicha Napad Talod. Wicha Napad Talod is practiced through the forceful exhalation of 3 breaths onto devotees, in order cleanse inauspiciousness, and bestow upon them baramee in work and luck, and Metta Mahaniyom.
There were 2 incidents where Luang Phor exhibited his prowess with wicha. On one occasion, he inscribed “Na” on the trunk of a tree, and announced to his devotees that anyone able to retrieve the letter from the tree would be presented with a special prize. All who were present tried fervently, some even resorting to using an axe to cut off the bark with the letter on it. However, after hacking away for some time and even causing the tree to fall, they were unable to cut off the exact piece of bark with the letter written on it.
In another incident, a Sammanen was tasked by Luang Phor to inscribe yant on a stack of leaves. The Sammanen was young and inexperienced, and was slow in his task. Luang Phor proceed to take the stack of leaves, inscribe the desired yant upon the topmost leaf, before blowing hard onto the entire stack. When the Sammanen checked the leaves, he found that the yant had miraculously been copied onto each and every leaf.
He has the heavenly eye for unobstructed seeing (Dibbacakkhu), as well as knowing the future (Anagatamsanana).
Some of his most famous amulets are:
Luk Om – It was said that when people put his luk om into their mouth, they became invulnerable to weapons such as knives and guns.
Takrut Sarika – the most famous of all his amulets. It was said that when Luang Phor consecrated his Takrut Sarika, he would throw them into a pail of water and recite his katha. Only the takrut that floated to the top would qualify for use. This exemplified the power of his wicha, as the takrut were written on metal, such as copper or lead.
