The Legend of 9-Face Lersi 九面仙师

Recently in Thailand, quite a number of guru monks are making the amulets and images of 9-face Lersi, the latest one being LP Thongdam of Wat Tham Tapianthong. Who is this 9-face Lersi? He is actually a combined deity of 9 great Lersi, similar to the 9-face Buddha being the combined deity of the 9 great millionaires of Buddha's time. Which are the 9 Lersi? According to LP Thongdam's vision, they consist of:-

1 . Pra Lersi Parotmuni or Por Gae 婆洛仙师:
Every field of artists/stage performers will pray to him in Thailand because Phor Gae is the sagely secretary/scribe. Purpose is to transmit knowledge to the world.

2. Pra Lersi Narot 那洛仙师:
A musical Deva, purpose is to grant success for “Saneh Metta Maha Niyom” or attractiveness and popularity.

3. Pra Lersi Narai 那莱仙师:
A great wizard. Practitioners in every esoteric field must respect him, not only in the field of "black magic" or traditional medicine. Purpose is to grant influence.

4. Pra Lersi Tafai 火眼仙师:
Another powerful ascetic who achieved success in the Jhana meditation method of Fire Kasina. He is strongest in supernatural powers and authority, and very good in ceremony/rituals. Purpose is to inspire "Wicha" practitioners.

5. Pra Lersi Tawa 塔瓦仙师:
He who has achieved success in the field of alchemy. Purpose is to help alchemists.

6. Pra Lersi Ped Chalugan or Bull-head Lersi 牛头仙师:
This Lersi Deva possesses vast supernatural powers and knowledge and is believed to be the first incarnation of Pra Narai or Vishnu. Purpose is to grant supernatural power and high influence, as he comes with Metta for all humankind.

7. Pra Lersi Na Seua or Tiger-face Lersi 虎面仙师:
He is an expert in the suppression and subduing of enemies. Purpose is for leading and governing followers. Very good for authority.

8. Pra Lersi Promma Paramit 婆罗门仙师:
His supernatural powers are on par with the rest of the Lersi, and also possesses Metta despite being fierce and speaking with a booming voice. He is Lersi Brahma with 4 green faces and 8 arms, very huge and tall. Purpose is also for granting influence.

9. Por Lersi Chiwok or Jivaka 齐沃医仙:
The great physician who took care of Lord Buddha during his time. His expertise in medicine is very famous. Purpose is to grant health.

Thus with the blessings of these 9 great Lersi, one can expect good luck, popularity, influence, authority, and protection from black magic. The Katha for 9-face Lersi given by LP is:

Namo Tassa (3x)
Ahang Wantami Mahamuni Mahabucha

Jitta Jittang Phawantute (9x or 108x).
