PT Gleun of Wat Pradoo Moo, Songkhla province is a 104 yrs old guru master who learned from Ajarn Yiad Wat Donsala and Ajarn Seng Wat Laem Sai. After seeing an ad in a magazine abt his old Pidta amulets I decided to go to the temple to visit this old master.
Having a shot taken with PT Gleun. He said there are no more amulets in the temple, but since I came such a long way from Singapore, he gave me a Somdej amulet he personally blessed. Although very old, PT could still walk ard himself with the help of a tongkat. He later mentioned that he could live so long because he never drank cold water, but only warm water or tea.
The Somdej amulet he gave me. Behind is his picture. He said it would give me very good Metta, strong enough to have many wives (Metta Saneh). I laughed but he added that those who wore this amulet must not defacate and urinate at the same time, which I thought was a strange rule. PT also taught me a katha which he said was excellent for wealth attraction -
Sang Thong Katha:
Om Sangthong Sang Gaew Kam Mah Leow
Glap Mah Rong Mah Mak
Na So Jit Mah Nit So Jai Mah Hai Wai
Wai Tan Welah Akat Chaiya Akat Chahi
Mani Mah Mah Mah Mah (7x).

"Thus is the Tathagata:
Coming from where there is no coming,
Going to where there is no going;
He is unborn and undying."
- Diamond Sutra
It is with much regret that I confirmed that the undecaying body of Ajarn Thong Wat Pagor has been destroyed in a fire last month. Apparently, those so-called "monks" that have been living in the temple had a fierce quarrel and one of them set fire to AJ's body in a fit of rage; all that is left of the body is a pair of feet.
The remains of AJ Thong's body was placed in a casket at the temple.Although sad, it is not unexpected. Because when AJ Thong was still alive he had already prophesied that the temple would be finished after his passing away. True enough it was soon inhabited by crocodiles and wolves in Jiworn robes who live off the donations of devotees. Still AJ continued to watch over the temple for the past 12 yrs, but I guess he too had enough and finally decided to leave. If not how could those wolves burn his body? Devotees only visit the temple to pay respect to AJ Thong during these past yrs; but by destroying his body, they destroy their own alms bowls as well. Woe unto them. May AJ Thong continue to watch over us disciples in the Dharmakaya, sadhu (3x).
