LP Suk of Wat Makhamtao
LP Suk of Wat Makhamtao (1847 - 1934 CE) was perhaps the greatest Wicha master of modern times. He was famous for his amazing powers of transformation and they were the stuff of many legends. The most famous legends were the one where he transformed elephants belonging to some arrogant merchants into houseflies and another where he transformed a man into a crocodile. The latter story was widely reported in Thailand during that time and there were many witnesses who saw the event. LP Suk had many disciples but his favorite one was of course Prince Chumpon, founder of the Thai Navy. Above we see the main Vihara of Wat Makhamtao in Chainat. From the web of Saisin above we can see that a consecration ceremony has taken place recently.
