Luang Phor Dte Khong Thong
The Kuman Thong Master
This month we take a close look at the highly revered Geji monk Luang Phor Dte and see why he became the Kuman Thong master.
Luang Phor Dte Khong Thong was a grand old Geji monk born on Monday 15th June 1891 BE (2434) it was the year of the Rabbit. he was born in the rural village of Baan Saam Ngaan in the province of Nakhon Pathom which lies about 2 hours south west of Bangkok. He was one of 7 brothers and sisters. His Mothers name was Puu and his Fathers name was Jan.
At the tender age of just 7 years old LP Tae began his life long apprenticeship with the thai Buddhist Monk-hood and ordained as a novice monk at Wat Ka-Long in Samut Sakhon province and began his studies for 3 years into Buddhist Dhamma and the ancient magical crafts with - interestingly enough; his uncle, Luang Lung Dang a renowned Geji monk of the day. LP Dang told the young LP Tae that one day they would build a grand temple in their home town of Dom Toom in Nakhon Pathom.
Like many young Thai men after completing service as a novice monk he returned to civilian life and and returned to the family home and completed his schooling. But upon reaching the age of 21 (1912) he ordained as senior monk holding full precepts his Upchaya (ordaining officer) was Luang Phor Dar of Wat Paniangtak - LP Tae was given his title Khong Thong. Once fully ordained Luang Phor Tae continued on with his with his studies into Dhamma and the Buddhist faith, Pali and began to hone his skills into wicha akom superEnatural spells. Like many young Monks it wasn't long before LP Tae began his remote travels and lifestyle known as Tudong learning more about the ancient crafts and meditation and spent a large amount of time in Cambodia.
At some point in his travels LP Tae meet up with a very special Geji master Luang Phor Chaem a Cambodian guru of the day who was to teach him some very powerful spells indeed. It is reported that LP Chaem held a stone tablet he once found buried in the temple grounds under the Chedi structure.
Luang Phor Dte began his sacred ritual training with LP Chaeam it was take many years he was required to make a Hoon Payont Pha Yant summoning enough power until it could flutter on the top of a coffin, secondly he was again required to make a Hoon Payont this time from bamboo grass summoning enough powere until the Hoon Payont idol could stand up-right on its own. His third test was to build a third Hoon Payont a lot heavier than the last until again through the ritual power it could stand up-right.

After learning these ancient spells and secrets LP Tae moved on to unlocking the secrets of true Kuman craftsmanship. Crafting these idols to very specific means using the powdered bones of deceased children, soils from 7 different temples and 7 different graveyards, even using the hair from the deceased child's mother, crafted in their traditional old style costumes and top knot hair styles. LP Dte Kuman can be expensive of course but are know to be fast acting and powerful, bringing forth wealth and good fortune, business success, love and respect even know to protect their owners homes.
But is wise to remember you should take care of your Kuman give the appropriate offerings such as boiled eggs, sweets and milks, red soft drinks no strong curries and rice as they are children remember. Your Karma or bad actions is their Karma and bad actions so you should lead a decent life for them to be born again. Luang Phor Dte passed away on 25th December 1981. Wat Saam Ngaam is a great place to visit where the Kuman tradation lives on it is located south east of Bangkok in the province of Petchaburi about 1-2 hours from Bangkok.
