The Wishing Crystal Monk

The Forest World of Dhutanga 

Luang Pu Kaew, an esoteric monk from a temple called Wat Sapanmaikaen, Jana District in Songkla Province.  He is among the greatest Southern monk in our time with a widespread reputation for his shining arcane knowledge and powerful strength in magical spells.  Luang Pu Kaew earned another auspicious byname The Great Wishing Crystal presumably for his ability to grant people’s wish come true and dispelling dark evil forces.

Phra Pidta B.E.2558

Luang Pu Kaew is considered a divine deity in making supernatural charms and amulets, devil-defeating pendants, and Takruts incantation scrolls with mighty power in a world of turbulence when six lives were saved from a destructive bombing.  Luang Pu Kaew sets an example as one of the shining jewel in Southern Thailand for making efficacious amulet talismans.

Born in B.E 2455 (CE 1912) ordained at the age of 54 years old in BE 2509 (CE 1966) at Wat Sai Kow, Pattani and his preceptor is Ajahn Nong.  We came across Luang Pu Kaew about 10 years ago carrying his iconic walking stick with a Cobra snake head. A practicing Thudong monk in the deep forests in Songkhla region.

In conjunction with the latest batch BE 2557 “Rian Sema” pendant of Luang Pu Tuad pendant (front) and Luang Pu Kaew (back), we have pieced together the story of this Wishing Crystal monk from sources obtained from the Internet and individual contributors.

This new batch of Luang Pu Tuad pendant is certainly not the first batch ever created by Luang Pu Kaew. In the Southern part of Thailand, Luang Pu Tuad is highly venerated by the Thais due to the sacredness of this talisman for its miraculous protective power.  Hence, Luang Pu Tuad is the most popular amulet of choice for Buddhist monks to consecrate. For your information, Luang Pu Tuad is also a Dhutanga wondering monk traversing the forest world during the olden days. The Dhutanga tradition is the pathway to enlightenment and it makes every ascetic practicing monk highly cultivated in their mental development. A true Ariyan in their own rights.

Songkhla has gotten better with many wonderful gurus, monks, and talismans.  For example in our previous article story about Luang Pu Siman Thep Intoh and Wat Donsala's Maha Puttaphisek Blessing, we have been able to highlight some of these notable Southern monk’s omnipresence.  From Songkhla to Phattalung, Nakorn Si Thammarat and to Pattani, there’re ample Buddhist masters and great talismans for one’s collection purpose.  Luang Pu Kaew is no exception in every Southern amulets collectors’ mind.

Protection in Bali Bombings
This shocking news was widely spread across the globe about an inhumane bombing amidst a crowded tourist area in Bali, Indonesia. The cold-hearted terrorists tickled a time-bomb in one of the entertainment outlet causing deaths and injuring several hundreds more tourists. However, there are six lives that escaped from death without any injuries in the center stage of the bombing incident.
This piece of incredible news really shook the world and these people were questioned what really saved their lives? It was later found out that all the six persons whom survived the bomb blast are faithful devotees of Luang Pu Kaew. They themselves had admitted to be Luang Pu Kaew’s disciples from the temple of Sapanmaikaen situated in the deep forest of Jana District in Songkhla Province. 

Based on their story, they had themselves cast with a holy blow on their foreheads by Luang Pu Kaew, which was believed to contain protective blessings. They were also given some protective amulets to wear.

Amulets from Luang Pu Kaew have been proven in many critical events or life threatening experiences. They are well known and become widespread accredited not only in Thailand kingdom, but also among foreigners of different religions. They have witnessed the happenings themselves and respected wholeheartedly and faithfully to Luang Pu Kaew.

Amulets and charms blessed by Luang Pu Kaew are comparable to many old time amulets consisting super strong protective powers, counter evils and prevention of mishaps.  

Supernatural Power in Expelling Evil Forces

Luang Pu Kaew is very well known for his long duration in Buddhism practice and knowledge in white charms. Luang Pu Kaew is unrivalled for his exceptional mastery in spells and magic usage. This is due to Luang Pu Kaew’s years of pilgrimage and deep meditations. He has attained the strong supernatural knowledge where his mind could overcome all demons and evil powers.  Half a century of priesthood describes how he has made numerous holy pilgrimages by roaming through vast forests and mountains to study arcane sciences, Buddhist charms and occultism. During those times, Luang Pu Kaew had practiced the sublime Dharma and transcendent insights so vigorously that he had succeeded in sharpening his supernatural knowledge.

Luang Pu Kaew practiced the transcendent power in tranquility meditation at Kuan Khao Haeng Cemetery, which is an isolated place deep in a rubber forest in Jana district well known for its highly populated devilish spirits. 

There was a true story that Luang Pu Kaew has encountered an evil spirit, which had died and vanished a long time ago. During those days, many people are unaware of evil spirits that exist around the world of passions and desires. It was told that there was a family living in Tamode District in Patalung Province.  They lived happily together until one day when their daughter returning home from a business trip and became very ill.  She fainted continuously without any reason. Her whole family was shocked and immediately brought her to seek medical treatment. However, she seemed to be a totally different person after returning home from the hospital. She looked horrible and was harsh in her speech. She started asking for raw meat and ate it like she hadn’t eaten anything for ages. She was no longer her own self. She spoke badly and nonsensically just like a lunatic. Her parents suffered from her sudden change in behavior and felt that they had lost control of their own daughter. 

The girl’s parents came to believe that evil spirits had obsessed their daughter. Therefore, they started knocking doors around the village to seek for competent black magicians to cure their daughter. When the black magicians came in, they chanted spells onto her and the evil spirit left her body during the ritual. The family was relieved to see that the evil spirits has gone and the bad times for their daughter was over. However, days later, the situation got worse. The evil spirits returned and tormented the daughter again.

This time the family came to know that there was a man who was shot to death behind the village which they resided in. Their daughter had walked past the spot, which this man was shot dead and the spirit of this dead man was attracted to her charm and wanted to take her as its wife. The family was in great anxiety when they knew about this violent devil’s wish to take their daughter as the wife and was afraid that it would end their daughter’s life. Her parents begged the spirit to change its intentions not to take away their daughter’s life by giving offerings to the spirits but nothing seemed to work. The spirit showed no mercy to the family’s pleas and insisted what it wanted to take their daughter’s life. 

The girl’s parents traveled to everywhere that they knew of reputable black magicians and shamans, and invited them to help their daughter. However, not even a single shaman or black magician could overcome this harsh evil spirit.  The shaman casts spells and conduct rituals known but none of them worked and led to the evil spirit becoming more daring in its evil doings.  Many spells were casted, holy water being soaked and ritual ceremonies conducted but still could not drive away the evil spirit. Many of the black magicians could not find a way to defeat the evil spirit and eventually left the family although some of the black magicians were experienced and had strong spells casting power. 

The demon would pretend to be driven out and after sometime, it will return to harm the girl again. Surprisingly, even when the daughter wore plenty of amulets and charms, it does not have any effect on the evil spirit from possessing her. The evil spirit took rally in getting the daughter’s life and that made the girl nearly lost her mind in intense fear and terror. When the spirit came obsessing her, she would become unconscious and sensed nothing on her human body. Until the spirit left her then she could get her consciousness back. 

For three painful years this violent demon had tortured this poor girl turning her into its slave with evil behaviors. The family finally came to know about Luang Pu Kaew and went to seek for advice. Since Luang Pu Kaew did not get to see the evil spirit’s devilish power and the family was residing far away in the remote Tamode District of Patalung province, it was impossible to know the exact location of the residence and to learn about the characteristics of the spirit. The family has doubt whether Luang Pu Kaew is able to defeat the demon and cast it away from their daughter’s body. 

Luang Pu Kaew went into deep meditation state and when Luang Pu Kaew drew his mind off from his concentration and relaxed himself, he told the family that their daughter had been relieved from the evil spirit’s pestering affair. Overjoyed, the father kneeled down before Luang Pu Kaew and thanked him for helping their daughter. The family then quickly took leave to return home to see if their daughter is well.

Within a month, that family came back to pay homage to Luang Pu Kaew at the temple of Saphan Meikaen with happy faces informing that their daughter is perfectly well. They told Luang Pu kaew after that day, no evil spirit possess their daughter anymore. They thanked Luang Pu Kaew again for showing mercy and helped their daughter.  The Great Wishing Crystal monk himself had granted the wish of this parent to cure their daughter’s sufferings and pains.  

The above story is about an evil spirit which obsessed the girl in Tamode District at Patalung province. It reveals the spiritual power of Luang Pu Kaew’s ultra Dharma in subduing evil spirits. The story also tells the reality about people who died under abnormal circumstances due to past misdeeds. Unable to be reborn, they go through deeper suffering further blinded by desires, lusts and anger. Without the righteous virtues and guidance of Luang Pu Kaew, this spirit would be drowned into the eternal pitfall of lustfulness, revenge and anger. Whether this evil spirit can be reborn is up to its fate and this is something beyond the knowledge of anyone.

Mind Freedom and Wisdom
Just like any past and present Dhutanga forest monks practicing austerity and abandonment of desires using meditation as their tool, they lead a Holy Life. The end result is freedom of mind upon discovering the sublime Dharma that was once taught by Lord Buddha. Luang Pu Kaew and many others have walked this Holy path before and along their mind training, they used their special skills and acquired knowledge to benefit those in need without any favor in return. Thus, they are the crystal jewels.


"The bhikkhu who has retired to a solitary abode and has calmed his mind and who comprehends the Dhamma with insight — in him there arises a delight that transcends all human delight".

The Dhammapada

"Pay attention, O bhikkhus, I exhort you:
Going to destruction are all compounded things,
With heedfulness make an effort!"

These are the last recorded words of Lord Buddha: his final exhortation to the Thudong bhikkhus.

This story is dedicated to all striving Bhikkhus in finding The Truth. Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
