Lp Thongsook Intasaro never taught the sacred science to create these amulets to anyone else. On his death the sacred science and knowledge was to die with him. One of the many reasons that the amulets are not only valuable but increase in price every year.
Phra Pitda amulets are some of the most sacred Thai amulets originating from Wat Sapansoong, highly respected by all amulet collectors and devotees. These amulets were created by some of the best known Thaio guru monks such as Luang Phor Iam who created the very first prototype, Luang Phor Glin and Luang Phor Thongsook being disciples created almost identical amulets.
All Phra Pitda amulets from this temple are very expensive, but those blessed by Luang Phor Thongsook are by far the most reasonably priced and well within the budget of most collectors.
Thongsook Intasaro, or officially called “Prakru Nontakitsopon”, was born as “Thongsook Boonmee” on March 11th, B.E.2446, to the family of Mr. Kong and Mrs. Pae, locals of Nongkanan, Muang District, Petchburi Province.
He was born as one of five offspring and educated at Wat Priang near his home by Luang Phor Joy, the temple’s former abbot. Aged 13 he moved to Wat Nongwa where he obtained a higher-level education.
He returned home aged 18, enlisting in the armed services and the police force each for two years, working in many of the southern provinces such as Pattalung, Chumporn, Songkla, Narativas, etc.
Not suited a life in the services he resigned to become a Buddhist monk ordained at Wat Naprom, Petchburi province, in B.E.2470, aged 24 years.
Three months after his ordination he returned to Wat Nongwa and met Acharn Peng again, who was to became his close friend, persuading him to move to Wat Ta-kwian, Nontaburi Province.
During the time he was also to become a close follower of Luang Phor Glin, the abbot of Wat Sapansoong, and former disciple of the very famous Luang Phor Iam, who taught him Dharma and sacred sciences.
On December 5, B.E.2501, after Luang Phor Glin had passed away, Luang Phor Thongsook Intasaro was appointed as Prakru Nontakitsopon and abbot of Wat Sapansoong.
On April 7, B.E.2525, at 08.00 am, aged 79 , he passed away peacefully in a Bangkok hospital having served the Buddhist faith for 55 years.
After Luang Phor Glin had passed away, two of his closest followers namely Luang Phor Thongsook and Luang Phor Pun (later appointed as the abbot of Wat Intaram, Bangkok), divided the sacred powders of Luang Por Glin and his predecessor, Luang Poo Iam, into two parts, one part inherited by Luang Phor Thongsook the other by Luang Phor Pun.
It was recorded in temple documentation that the sacred powders namely Patamung, Ittijay, Maharach, Buddhakun, Itipiso, Trinisinghe, Trisaranakom, Yant Mahasolosmongkol must be created in the temple and pass several-months of sacred spell reciting ceremonies before they could be used.
Moreover parts of the sacred powder must be kept in the temple and used to create more sacred powder in the future by this way the sacred powder would be preserved and also exist in newly produced powder.
Luang Phor Thongsook mixed his powders with many other sacred powders, creating more than 30 different pims including Phra Pitda, Phra Pong , etc, during the period B.E.2491-2525. Above all he was of course best known for his Phra Pitda and sacred takruts.
Wat Sapansoong’s amulets are considered very sacred indeed because Luang Poo Iam, Luang Phor Glin and Luang Phor Thongsook produced them strictly according to the ancient sacred sciences, using identical methodologies to both Luang Poo Iam and Luang Phor Glin. As such all of his amulets are highly respected as those of the senior sacred monks.
More importantly Luang Phor Thongsook Intasaro never taught the sacred science to create these amulets to anyone else. On his death the sacred science and knowledge was to die with him. One of the many reasons that the amulets from these three monks are not only valuable but increase in price every year.
