    Background

    Luang Phor Kuay was born on November 2nd B.E.2448, in Bankae Village, Sunbury District, Chainat Province.
    He was the first born and loved very much by his parents, who sent him to be educated by Luang Phor Kuad at Wat Bankae. Although only 6-7 years old Luang Phor Kuay could remember and recite many of the sacred spells he was taught, along with Khmer language and high-level sacred spells.

    Luang Phor Kuad predicted even at this early age that Luang Phor Kuay would become very successful in the monk hood and as such dedicated himself to teaching the novice monk. Luang Phor Kuad passed away soon after, and as a result, LP Kuay moved to Wat Huaden where he was to further his studies under Ajahn Dum.

    At was at this time that Luang Phor Kuay had told his parents that if he were to be ordained he would stay in the priesthood for life. At the age of 20 he was indeed ordained a monk by Phra Chainatmuni, Luang Phor Pa and Phra Ajahn Ring on July 5th, B.E.2467 at Wat Bost, Chainat Province. He was also given the official name “Chutinataro”, which in fact has a significant and very deep meaning and can loosely be translated as follows:
    “This world is full of lust, passion and greed. He who wishes to be enlightened must free himself from all of them.”

    Sacred Book
    It was recorded that Luang Phor Kuay had owned a book called “Kru Rang”, which was full of sacred spells. It was said that only monks or ascetics had sufficient sacred power to open and read the volume. Should it be opened by an ordinary person his life may be damned.

    It was known that the book contained many sacred spells, to dispel evil, protection from weapons, and a scared spell to call upon Mae Thorani, or the goddess of the earth.
    Luang Phor Kuay had learned all the sacred spells and also copied the book for other monks. Today several copies are kept at a number of temples:

    Wat Tatong, Supunburi Province, kept by Ajahn Tau.
    Wat Nong-i-duke, Chainat Province, kept by Ajahn Sawang.
    Wat Kositaram, first kept by Luang Phor Kuay.

    This copy has never been opened and studied in any detail because of previous experiences of mysterious illness or disease associated with it.
    Apart from the book Luang Phor Kuay also learnt magic sciences from many other senior monks such as Luang Phor Puang of Wat Nong Kradone, Luang Phor Kun of Wat Khaokaew and Luang Phor Derm of Wat Nongpo, who it was said taught him about the sciences to create sacred knives and takruts.

    Luang Phor Pumpum of Wat Nongtangoo, a friend of Luang Phor Kuay had said that Luang Phor Kuay was a true monk, who was never afraid of anything which resulted in him learning strong magic.

    Furthermore it was also said that Luang Phor Kuay had a magic mouth. If he made a prediction, in all likelihood it would be become true.
    (Note: Monks, who were known to possess a magic mouth must not tell lies, otherwise power would be nullified.)

    The Secret of the sacred book
    Many people were obviously very inquisitive about where Luang Phor Kuay obtained his scared book. Some of his disciples actually revealed the story to us.
    Luang Phor Kuay had never expected that he would gain the book but on June 1, B.E.2477, he was staying at Wat Nongkam, Chainat Province where he was learning higher level ancient Thai medical sciences.
    During that time a monk named Jam had told Luang Phor Kuay that he had found a book, which was hidden in a hole of a dead tree but he could not extract the book because sacred souls were preventing him from doing so.
    Luang Phor Kuay was taken to see the book himself, whereupon he lit three incense sticks and prayed to the sacred souls “If it is your desire that I own this book, burn the incense to completion. ”
    The sticks did not burn. Again Luang Phor Kuay re-lit another three sticks and asked “If You want me to own and use the book to help temples and people, burn the incense to completion.”
    This time all of those sticks were quickly burnt and Luang Phor Kuay could easily extract the sacred manual.
    On reading book he found the paragraph which clearly stated that the book was not to be owned by laypeople unless the keeper and family were suffering from incurable disease or other calamity.

    He focused his attention on creating sacred amulets, takruts, sacred knives, phra pim etc. His amulets were highly respected by the worshippers as they are to this very day especially the somdejs, khun paen & sivali.

    Even criminals of the province highly respected Luang Phor Kuay and at that time whenever they passed his temple they would shoot once in the air to salute him.
    Abbot of Wat Bangkae (KOSITARAM).

    Because of his virtues, it was not long after, on September 1st BE 2491, he was appointed abbot of Wat Bankae.(Kositaram)
    It was recorded that during World War II for example, (B.E.2484) Luang Phor Kuay had given away sacred amulets to many people, who wanted his amulets in particular to help protect themselves from weapons and bombs.

    Apart from that Luang Phor Kuay was also a true monk who strictly followed Lord Buddha’s teachings.

    Fame
    During his stay at Wat Bankae he becomes very well known throughout the kingdom for his preaching about Lord Buddha’s history including the sacred legend of Pravessundorn.
    On June 19, B.E.2472, Luang Phor Kuay begun to learn “Pariyatti Dharma”(high level of Lord Buddha ’s Dharma) at Wat Wangkorn and at the same time he also practice meditation.
    Shortly after he once again moved to Wat Phra Bhrang, Singburi Province. It was here that he was to learn magic sciences from Luang Phor Sri Viriyasopit, who in particular taught him higher level meditation and the science to create sacred rings.
    It was recorded that when Luang Phor Kuay had moved to stay at Wat Nongtakaew, Supunburi

    LP Kuay was a disciple of LP Sri, Wat Phra Prang, Singhburi Province, and LP Doem of Wat NongPho, Nakornsawan Province. LP Kuay's forefinger was so powerful, a glass would be broken just he pointed to. LP Kuay has made some great efficacious Somdejs, Khun Paen & Sivali.
    After an amulet blessing ceremony at Wat Thathong, Suphanburi province, LP Toh, Wat Pradoo Chimplee had pointed to LP Kuay and asked Mr. Thanong Laokordee, " Who is that Guru."
    " He is LP Kuay, from Chainart," replied Mr. Thanong.
    " His meditative mind power is so bright and strong," said LP Toh.
    LP Kuay passed away in B.E.2522 at the age of 74.

    Based on Mr. Lek Watruak's website, he mentioned that "...there are 5 kinds of old antique amulets made in Ayuthaya period of between 300-500 years ago. The most well-known is of Wat Bankrang Temple, but the most expensive is of Wat Yai Chai Mongkol Temple..". And he suggested there are quite a number of temples (Wat, in Thai) have produced their own versions as well, among them, "good" ones are from Luang Phor Aant Wat Phra Yatigaram, LP Puak of Wat King Kaew, LP Their of Wat Palaelai, LP Kruen of Wat SangKho, LP Boi of Wat Manao, LP Taem of Wat PhraLoi, LP Daeng of Wat Thungkok, LP Thiam of Wat Kasattrathiraj, LP Rian of Wat NongBua, LP Kuay of Wat Kositaram, LP Tae KongThong of Wat SamNgam, LP Pae of Wat PikulThong, LP Chot of Wat Tano, LP Thoop of Wat Kae (Nang Lerng), LP Chaem of Wat Don Yai Hom, LP Dee of Wat Phra Roop, LP Juan of Wat Kaitia, etc. - All these may be used as your reference.
