    呵呵,我本身对 LP Theap 的故事也非常感兴趣,进乎着迷的地步,但是所知道的就这么多,都全写了。LP Theap 是个非常神秘的高僧,他的故事非常少,坦白说,要像阿占爹那样可以跟他相处5天的更是少之又少。其实那5天阿占爹很少跟他交流,大部分的时间都在练习打坐。阿占爹一直很强调的说,LP Theap 是一位非常注重坐禅的和尚,只要你心里100%相信佛陀,跟佛陀的路来走,努力坐禅,他就会来找你。阿占爹跟他见过2次面,第一次是阿占爹自己找他 (跟故事里的一样),第二次是 LP Theap 自己来找阿占爹,当时阿占爹在一间叫做 “Wat Pa” 的暹庙时,LP Theap 就亲自来找过他。我会在以后介绍阿占爹在这间 “Wat Pa” 所发生的事,但是跟 LP Theap 没有什么关系的,只知道 LP Theap 来过这间庙找他,就是这样。

    最近知道的新闻是,LP Theap 已经在空怀泰佛寺里守夏,要知道更多有关守夏节的可以在这部落格里找。阿占爹说 LP Theap 会在这段时期在空怀泰佛寺渡过,或许还会长住,当我问他 LP Theap 有没有跟他做进一步的交流时,阿占爹说他还无法真正的跟 LP Theap 联系上,因此阿占爹说他现在正在很努力的修理电话 (坐禅)好让可以跟 LP Theap 连上线。呵呵。

    To be honest, nothing really much can tell about LP Theap, as he was and still a very mystery monk. Not many people know about his story and not to mention 5 days stayed with him in the cave like Archan Tia did in the past. Even if you ask some monk they will take it as a joke. 5 days in that cave most of time spent of meditation instead of chatting, and because something tend to keep as secret Archan Tia is not at his convenient to tell us.

    Archan Tia keep mentioning that LP Theap is very favor those who practicing hard in meditation. If you want to "see" LP Theap you must 100% believe in Buddha's teaching, your heart must 100% believe, not 99.99%, not left, not right but straight forward in believing, follow Buddha's way in our daily life and working hard practicing meditation, if you do it right then LP Theap will come to see you if you want to. But I think its gonna take a lot, I mean really really really lot of hard work, like what Archan Tia did in the past then only we, as the normal people can get the chance to maybe take a 1 second peak at LP Thep.

    Archan Tia used to met LP Theap twice, first time was in the cave as written in the story, second time was in the wat name "Wat Pa", LP Theap came to Archan Tia personally. "Wat Pa" is the fourth Wat that Archan Tia built, it is situated in the high mountain of Petchabun, deep inside where motorbike and can cannot reach. I'll cover more the story of this Wat and things that happened on Archan Tia during his time in that Wat on my future post.

    Latest news that I got was LP Theap is in Wat Sungai Siput now for his 3 month Khao Pangsa. For more info of Khap Pangsa please visit the blog. Archan Tia said LP Theap will spend 3 months here and big possibility that he’ll long stay here. When asking about if there is any further communication between them, Archan Tia said he is currently working hard to repair the telephone line (meditation) so that it can hook up with LP Theap for better and clear communication, lol.

    Never forget how it started, it was started with that crude cabin that you can see from the picture, where Archan Tia built by himself using the most basic material that he can found from the jungle nearby and the building skill that he learned while he was a forest monk back in the time while he was in Thailand. Archan Tia use it to run the daily routine such as religion ritual, blessing as well as providing class for local Thai kids and of course, a shelter for himself. Today after 10 years Wat Sungai Siput has developed into a medium size of temple, it is now much better but still not good enough, it is still a small size and under development temple, still far from what a standard Thai temple should be.

    You see my friends, one could never achieved what he has accomplished if it lack of truth, believing, dedication and most importantly a heart with love and kindness. Archan Tia once said, he who possessed a clear mind, rational, love in heart, kind, humble, hardworking, dedicated, non-selfishness, overcome himself and follow exactly the way of Buddha will achieved what he want to accomplish, devas will be assisting you, your work will be marked in the heaven above.

    This year’s 10th “Phapa” event on 8/31 is a day that you don’t want to miss, it is a day of bliss, day where you witness the development of Ubosot and a day where your ancestor get transcendent and tranquilized.

    空怀泰佛寺的10周年纪念必须从10年前的那间简陋亚答屋开始记载。。。那天和阿占爹在门口闲聊,他抬起头看着布告栏上贴着的黄旧照片说,10年前什么都 没有,只有自己建的那间亚答屋,最怕遇到下雨天,每当下雨时就会很忙,因为要忙着拿盆子盛雨水,以免雨水湿透了地板。学生上课,宗教仪式,坐禅以及睡觉到 在那里,一个你无法想象的生活空间,阿占爹师傅却把它发挥到淋漓尽致,靠着的是一位高僧该拥有的那股坚持不渝以及伟大的精神,以佛陀的精神和教育重整贫 岭,把曾经的荒野变成今日佛光普照的大地,以己为例,感化世人,普渡众生。10年过去了,今天的空怀泰佛寺不再拥有该亚答屋的影踪,换我感慨的时候,我对 他说,如果那间亚答屋还没有拆而保留至今不知有多好,他听完后微笑着看着我,然后抬起头来继续欣赏他多年来的杰作。

    [​IMG]
    要 在这里建庙其实不容易,只有50几户贫穷的泰籍村落,多年来的建设都得靠外资助,如果阿占爹是一位寂寂无名的僧人,其信徒就不会遍布新马各地,空怀泰佛寺 也就不会发展到今日的规模,当然说不上堂皇,但总好比那间简陋亚答屋好得多了。他曾经说过,只要坚信佛陀,心存好念,舍己为人,不自私,谦虚好学,脑袋思 索清晰,以理服人,就会有出头的一天,每个人都一样,通过自己努力的内修加上仙佛的加持,谁都可以达到他要的东西。阿占爹身怀传自于他师父的绝技,但全身 上下却没有半点所谓的 “江湖味”,要不是他的精彩事迹以及他的圣物像神话一般精彩的真实救人故事,我想如果走在街上你也不会多看一眼。套句老话,山不在高,有仙则名,何必千里 迢迢到泰国去找高僧,你要的圣物,你要的佛理,你要的活生生的例子,全部都可以在空怀泰佛寺阿占爹的身上找得到,用你最熟悉的语言,在你最亲切的土地上, 以你的最方便来的得到最高深的智慧。空怀泰佛寺是阿占爹建的第5间庙(其他4间都在泰国,我以后会把有关的故事告诉大家),也是最后他本身主持的一间庙, 他的到来绝对是个缘分而非其它,也是我们的福分。

    8月31号的祖先公德法会上除了可以为自己的祖先超度集公德之外也可以为“讲经堂”出点力,更是恭请圣物的最佳良机。让我们大家一起来参与这将充满法喜的一天,这,意义深长的一天。

    I have received numberous PMs from singaporean devotee asking me how to visit Wat Sungai Siput, im very glad to answer it but it would be better if i post here for the info guideline once for all:

    Original from official forum: http://megaads.info/forum/viewthread...age=1&page=2

    you should take the flight from SG to KL, then from KL to Kedah, totally it will take you 2 hours. Check the cheap airline website for more ticking info.

    The problem is bro, even you can reach Kedah but doesnt mean you can reach Wat Sungai Siput because it located in the very remote area in northern region of kedah. Taxi driver may not know this place even you show him the exact address, you will need a tour guide. Try to find the chinese taxi driver, if you are lucky they might know it, if they dont know Wat Sungai Siput, ask them if they know Wat Kura in kampong Kura, if you can reach Wat Kura, you can reach Wat Sungai Siput, very near. For more info of how to reach Wat Sungai Siput please visit http://archantia.blogspot.com/p/read-first.html and print out the guide, you will need it when you reach malaysia.

    Wat Sungai Siput is located in Kedah but if anyone who came from Southern Malaysia (such as penang, perak, kl, sg, etc) should use the path of Gurun which is nearer than alor setar (capital of kedah). Gurun is a small city, if you can reach Gurun, show the guide to taxi driver i think the percentage for them to know this place is kinda high, worth give a try.

    If you reach northern region of Malaysia such as penang or kedah, most of the chinese here can speak hokkien, thought the hokkien here is slightly different than hokkien in johor and singapore but still workable.

    If you really want to come, i believe money is not a problem but time is, so you have to plan for holiday, i think you will need 2 days. If possible come with friend so that you have company. Try to come on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, these 3 days Archan Tia will not going anywhere cause many visitor. Remember to print out the guide from blog, its very important.

    Plan your trip, prepare for things, you can do many things here, such as sakyant, insert gold takrut, rent amulet, floral bath / fortune enhance (make sure you bring all the stuffs, check out the blog for more info) and etc. When you meet archan tia talk slowly in hokkien, he was influence with northern region hokkien here and not so understand with southern hokkien.


    FAQ:
    Q: And izzit near to Hatyai?
    A: Nope, hatyai is in Thailand while sungai siput is in Kedah, Malaysia. And from there to the border of thailand gonna take about 1 hours ++.

    Q: Well, I'd really love to visit Wat Sungai Siput. I've checked for the express bus from Singapore to Kedah. It reaches Gurun. However, for me to return to Singapore, I've have to take the express bus from Alor Setar to Singapore. Now, there's a problem of travelling from Gurun to Alor Setar.

    I'd also have to live in Kedah for a day. Are there any hotels that are near to Wat Sungai Siput?

    If I were to take the plane, I'll have to travel to KL then to Alor Setar. The distance between Wat Sungai Siput and Gurun (express bus) is nearer compared to the distance between Wat Sungai Siput and Alor Setar (Sultan Aiport)

    A: Yes my brother, from Alor Setar (or alor star) to WSS it takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes, if you go by early in the morning which less traffic, you can reach there with 50 minutes, thats my best record, driving at average of 110km/h.

    Again the same answer, even if you reach alor setar im not sure if taxi driver know how to take you there, they can take you to pendang without problem but pendang is a big place, WSS is located deep inside pendang, if you really want to try go there by taxi, try to look for india or chinese taxi driver, which is less in number. Ask them directly if they know where is Kampung Sungai Siput, if not ask them if they know about "kampung cina" and once you reach there ask the local people where is WSS, you have to ask like this "where is the thai temple named wat sungai siput", or very simple "wat sungai siput" because im not sure if the local where majority is malay understand the english or know the meaning of "wat", it sounds like "what" if you know what im saying.

    Accommodation is not a problem you can see many hotels or homestay there, ask taxi drive take you there. The hotel rate in alor setar is is averagely cheap because here is not big city like penang or kl, the living cost in here is low. You can try "Sentosa Regency Hotel" http://www.sentosaregencyhotel.com.my/ or StarCity Hotel http://www.starcity.com.my/ or if you are looking for cheap hotel try Samila. Ask the taxi driver when you get here, ask them take you to the hotel based on your budget, like what we did when we travel.

    Try to come here on friday, saturday or sunday because archan tia is always around on that 3 day. Its better you call and ask him to confirm weather he is there or not before you come. Ask in simple hokkien only and dont ask in details how to get there, he also cant tell you one. If you need any help you can call Mr. Ng at 012-5862408.

    This is the story about Archan Tia, what he did in Thailand, temples that he built and how he get here. The english version of story is shorter than the chinese version.

    这是有关阿占爹的一些故事,主要是讲述他在泰国建庙时的一些事迹,在庙里发生的妙事,以及什么机缘下开始利用经文跟人家刺青和制造圣物等。当然也讲述了什么机缘下他来到了马来西亚和这里的善信们结缘。

    According to Hai Huat (the oldest follower of Archan Tia), he said he used to bring a friend to Wat Sungai Siput seeking Archan Tia's help for his spiritual acupuncturing service to heal the disease on his friend's body. Archan Tia use the needle to stick few times only and told his friend its done. After that Archan Tia walked away and head to the kitchen and both of them went to see the "4 face buddha" statue that still under construction, his friend then speak to Hai Huat "I have doubt about Archan Tia, he just stick few times only and im not sure weather he can cure my disease or not" After a while they saw Archan Tia approach them and speak to his friend in kinda angry tone "You cannot say like that, if you have that kind of thinking then your disease will never healed!". Anyone who visited Wat Sungai Siput before will know that the distance between 4 face buddha staues and kitchen is very far away even if you speak loudly the voice also cannot be heard clearly, so this is the magic called "mind reading" that possessed by Archan Tia.

    Archan Tia also used to told me that last time when he was in Thailand one day he practicing meditation inside a temple, during meditation he "saw" a men with red shirt come to temple seeking help to repair his bike. After he finished meditation, just after a while a men with red shirt carrying a broken bike came to temple asking for help, exactly like the scene he saw in during meditation. This is the magic known as "predict the future". According to Hai Huat, Archan Tia have the katha for predicting the future, but i believe it must accompany with high level of meditation skill then only it will work.

    Some story about his master LP Thop​


    Archan Tia said when he was small, he used to saw his master use the branches from tree to make 2 simple stick man, after than he put those 2 stick man on the group and let them fight each other!

    The trick performed is to entertain the villager kids because LP Thop saw them in boring mood. Now Archan Tia also own the "Hun Pa Yong" yantra passed down by his master LP Thop to him, but Archan Tia wont make any "Hun Pa Yong" amulet in the future because he did not like to create amulet that are in barang kind. But its interesting to listen to that story.

    The Booklet (第一版本的小册子)​


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The first version of Wat Sungai Siput booklet titled “The Story of Archan Tia” has been printed out now and can be obtained free at Wat Sungai Siput. This 32 double-faced book was published in bi-language which is Chi & Eng containing the following:

    • The story of Archan Tia
    • The strange encountered with LP Thep the 900 years old legendary monk
    • Meditation guideline by Archan Tia
    • The story of Archan Tia’s sacred items
    • Miscellaneous (Pali chanting, direction guideline, contact info, donor list, etc)

    This book will serve as the introduction for those who barely know about Archan Tia including his background & history; also it meant to be distributed to those who don’t have internet access to browse this blog. There are total of 400 books printed from the amount of RM510 collected from a group of devotees in Sungai Petani (SP). We are collecting more funds to publish for the better version in book cover and paper quality (currently just A4 version), so if you think you are interest in contribute some, call Mr. Lau (Assistant Vice Chairman) of Wat Sungai Siput at 010-3730730 (speak chinese or hokkien only) and he will take your name and guide you how to send the donation. Alternatively you can also give the donation to Archan Tia but remember to submit your name too in full. If sufficient amount of money was collected we might consider publishing the book in a quarter basic per year so that Wat Sungai Siput will have its own publication for its existing and new devotees.

    空怀泰佛寺的第一版本刊物已经出版。这本32页双面而且是华、英双语的书刊可以在庙里免费索取。这本书的主要内容如下:

    • 阿占爹的故事
    • 阿占爹与900多岁高僧的奇遇
    • 禅修入门学
    • 阿占爹圣物、救人的故事
    • 其他 (回向经文,导航/地图,联系方式,捐助者名单,等等)

    这本小册子主要是提供给那些想对阿占爹做更进一步的了解与认识,但又无法或不便上网的善信们有个可以参考的途径。这一次的出版费全由一群来自吉打双溪大年的热心善信们捐助,总共筹得了RM510,复印了400本。我们正在筹备着下一轮的发布,希望可以以更加精美的方式来出版。如果你有心要捐助的话可以联系空怀泰佛寺的第二副主席刘先生010-3730730或把款项呈交给阿占爹师傅均可,但记得把你的全名也一起交上去。如果所筹得的出版费足够的话我们或许会考虑以一年出版4次,每次都有新内容的方式来为空怀泰佛寺进行出版来自于庙方本身的刊物。

    wow you are lucky lo...

    Hi bro,
    Wow you are so lucky to strike lottery. I got rented or say donation for this nang kwak but not one cent strike til now... why leh. I have rented his copper phayant and takrut.
    Bro strike lottery is not so call 'power', or maybe your faith with nang kwak ... doesn't mean what. If one describe 'power' including protection, wealth and metta. For me combination of this three is so call 'power'. Ones's cannot say him power or not, it depend your fate with this archan.
    So far I have rented many item from him and few boy get tattoo from him. Don't feel anything, but yet I don't call him power or not.... its a question mark ???. as I treated it as donation for building ubosot or what ever he used the money for, and none of my business.
    But for tattoo, its so call power lol, really, its not my experience, but its my friend experienced it himself... than many ppl ask me to bring them to get tattoo lol.
    For me I respected him as archan/sifu, cos feel he quiet good, not to say he is 'power' or not.

    Bro, u keeping barang items? or any items? There's also alot of other reasons why his items you got have no effect too.

    I got his copper phayant, feeling is good. Plus donating the money to the temple, the money go to construction. Can see where the money go to.

    What u are saying is, you are implying the monks is taking the money and use the money in some other areas...will make other people lose faith...

    Hi,
    Bro did you read my post clearly and fully understood? Did I mention that he used the money in other way?? What I mean is I don't care/know how he used the money, say on building ubosot or other construction work at wat sg siput... he maybe used those money not only for building ubosot, maybe other things, its up to them.. are you clear, or maybe you misunderstood in my post... please red carefully before create trouble with me, ok.
    Bro did I mention that i not respect ac tia? No... in my post I hv mention I did respect him, right. And only you critic on my post and only you think you loose faith on my post, maybe that's mean you are not confident in Ac Tia... ha ha,
    Bro.. I used to support Ac Tia every since I came to know him.....I make donation two times per year...think five to six time in within two year. How do you expect I m not support Ac Tia and how do I make/condemn ac tia, even I m not a hardcore supporter? I don't know what are the intention of you... or do you think you are a hardcore supporter? I don't need to prove myself for how I support ac tia... ha ha ac tia will know it... if you don't believe..can go wat sg siput ask ac tia personally ... you can used this name, this is my nick name used in forum, no need my real or full name, see ac tia can tell you or not, I think he can tell you cos he is power lol....
    Bro I m using my real name for donation and using nick name for forum, still the helper in this forum don't know who am I when using this nick name. You Pm those ac tia helper in this forum, if you know them or if don't know I will let you know.

    Thanks for your imply on me... so now I already explained this matter, alright. If you still not happy or clear, pm me. I m here not to create trouble, just gv my comment on those bro who claim strike lottery, and I don't strike anything and yet I don't jealous and still support ac tia. Hv read my posted testimony on nang kwak by ac tia, I don't strike any and still support.
    Anywhere, you mention did I kept any barang item? I just having Lp Dum HPY only...not the very 'barang' item, do you think this can affect those phayant? Bro if those HPY can affect this phayant, so how come this phayant can protect us?????
    What I mean nothing happen to me is not meant is no effect, on the other hand maybe this phayant clear all my obstacle in the manner that we don't feel.. ha ha. As long as I don't hv any trouble .. that's enough.
