Luang Phor Tim of Wat LahanLai

At the age of 17, his father sent him to Tan Phor Singh and he studied for one year. After his studies, his father brought him home. In BE2449, he returned to his hometown and was ordained as a monk in Wat Thatkaow on 7 June. He was ordained by Phrakru Kaow, Archan Singh and Archan Kehh and was given the religious name of Issaliko. After spending a year in Wat Thatkaow, he went into forest retreats for a period of three years and he went to Wat Narmathom in Chengwat Chonburi for two years. Luang Phor Tim learned Wijja (magics) with Archan Lod, Archan Lem and Archan Saii. Luang Phor Tim also went to study under Luang Pu Song Thao of Wat Kongchin, whom was also his uncle. Before Luang Pu Song Thao passed away, he left behind a book of Wijja and Ar Kom in Wat Wat LahanLai for Luang Phor Tim and master Tim became the abbot of Wat LahanLai.

Luang Pu Tim was a strict practitioner of the Dhamma. For 50 years Luang Phor Tim would always take his meal at 7 am and his afternoon tea at 4 pm and he was also a vegetarian. Luang Phor Tim passes away on 18 October BE2518 and he was in the Sangha for 72 years.

What is Prai Guman???

Luang Phor Tim of Wat LahanLai used to create Prai Guman powder followed very ancient ways, which only a few monks had the knowledge to create successfully.

Kon Kulahp (the disciple of Luang Phor Tim) was instructed by Luang Phor Tim to find the corpse of a woman that died during pregnancy and the woman should have died on a Saturday and cremated on a Tuesday. He was further told that once such a cadaver was located that he should remove parts of the child's skull, from the unborn foetus and not look back once the sacred material had been secured. This was carried out in accordance with the wishes of Luang Phor Tim.

Luang Phor Tim chanted a special Katha for one week in order to prevent the spirit departing from the Prai Guman. Once completed, Kon Kulahp was instructed to pound and grind the material into a fine powder, which he commenced to do, before becoming somewhat disturbed by sparks emanating from the mortar. He had to burn incense and ask for forgiveness before this phenomena abated.

Luang Phor Tim took the Prai Guman powder and mixed it with a number of other sacred powders including, Itije powder, Patamang powder, Jindahmanee powder and 108 different herbs and sedges. The mixture was chanted for days on end.

The Pri Guman was also added to a few other batches of amulets including this Khun Paen , Phra Somdej, Phra Pitda and Phra Kring Chinabahnchorn. In the case of the Phra Kring amulet the material was added to the base.

The Reason why Luang Phor Tim chose to use the skull of a dead child in the process was because the amulet made by Prai Guman will provide merit from Lord Buddha and the power and protection will come from Guman Plaai.
