Ven. LPu Sukh Kovito, this photo is taken in his 1st temple in Pichit, Wat Pa’ Phromviharn, the first temple Venerable built after practising as a wandering forest monk 30 over years and set his foot last in Pichit.
Currently, Ven. LPu is in Wat Pa’Phromnimit, in Sisaket, his hometown. Casting of the main Buddha image will postpone till next year March 2017 ( for the moment till advised again). Ven. LPu has given permission to us to make arrangements for him to make his rian (as informed in the earlier posting http://saengthai.org/?p=3055 ) . Ven. LPu wants the proceeds from all this rian to be used for :
- building of Ubosot
- building of kuti(s)
- building of toilets
I apologize for the poor caption of the photos but I believe it should give you all a fair idea what will Ven. LPu Sukh present you for the dana you contribute.

I believe those whom are Dhammayut followers especially Archan Mun’s lineage should know very well such forest temple are mainly a place for practise. Ubosot is the most important, kutis and toilets are very important too because we hope to provide people whom aspire to practise with the meditation forest monks to have proper place to sleep and rest and also to keep their belongings when they have to leave for their meditation practice in the forest. Everyone knows how important toilet is…especially in the forest..as at now if I am not mistaken there is only 8 units of toilets shared among everyone.
Above are some of the amulets we sponsored Ven. LPu Sukh ( none left…not even in temple)
This is the trial mould piece that the craftsman made to let Ven. LPu approve the final look of the rian.
Ven. LPu meditate and blessed on it after his approval.
Ven. LPu Sukh doesn’t really make amulets, though many people kept approaching Ven. LPu to make. I still remember last year’s Kathina was supported by a famous bank but when they were declined to let them make amulets, they dropped the Kathina the following year. Unfortunately this is the mentality of the Thais when it comes to such. That is why Ven. LPu Sukh, Ven. LP Seua Wat Donyaipeuan, Ven. ChaoKhun Thong Poon Wat BanPhen, Ven. LP Dam Wat Mai Naparam…etc always tell their Thais devotees SaengThai Malaysia followers are very different from you all, they are “uppatham” means unattached . They make dana because they believe in merits..they believe in accumulating good karmas. That is why the Committees always blame Ven. LPu that he loves only his God son , Nr. Ng in Malaysia and allow him to make amulets but always decline their own people. Ven. LPu admonished them this time, telling them. It was Ven. LPu ‘s decision to make everytime but Mr. Ng will pay for it then offered the amulets to the temple and when the amulets were all taken up (it always got taken up, so please book while there still is ), all the funds were donated to the temple. Ven. LPu said “wai jai dai” means can be trusted, Mr. Ng never intervene in the designs and how the amulets or the funds were to be used. He will get the best mould maker and craft till Ven. LPu is satisfied. So far Ven. LPu loved his rian Saema we make for Ven. 2 years ago, it is really beautiful I have to admit. It was snatched up once people got wind of it. We still remember, Ven. LPu held on to the trial mould rian, not letting go of it. We were very happy to offer something that Ven. LPu loved so much. (The Rian Saema below)
Some may ask, ” If Ven. LPu dont make amulets, then what are these for?” I dont know how to answer you all but all our teachers so far grant our request to sponsor amulets for them to be either given out to devotees or let them tamboon or rent from temple. Perhaps these Gaeji Archans knew we had very pure intentions…that is to give people the opportunity to collect something good. Ven. LPu Sukh’s amulets had many a times manifested miracles against firearms assault, bodily injury as a result of accident or assault. And Ven. LPu’s amulets, he said no need to chant any special katha, just chant Namo Tassa…thrice and think of him then tell Ven. LPu what’s your request.
Not only we want you to wear good amulets but we want the best for you( and please bear in mind, who will go to such extend to give you good amulets and give them away!) We got a few good Gaeji Archan, Mr. Ng requested from the other fellow disciples of Ven. LP Kreung Wat Sak KamPhaengYai eg. Ven LP Sao to give their blessings and also to contribute their yants to be melted with the rians. While I requested from Ven. LP Seua Wat Donyaipeuan for his blessings and yants to make this batch of rians for Ven. LPu.
So don’t miss this opportunity to make good merits with one of the very few surviving Archan Mun’s disciple ( read earlier post http://saengthai.org/?p=2695 ) and then get a souvenir (very likely the last amulet) from Ven. LP Sukh. This batch of amulets will be consecrated on 2nd October 2016 at Wat Pa’Phromnimit in conjunction with Ven. LPu’s birthday. There will also be a puthaphisek ceremony for Ven. LPu’s life-size image.
