Luang Pho Pina

Luang Pho Pina,was born in Amper Tatan Janwad Utthaitani  on the 1st of March 2456 (1913) and was described as a outgoing young man that loves to enjoy life and live care free. As a young man he was also known to be afraid yet at the same time interested in the topic of ghost and spirits/spirituality thus decided to embark his journey as a monk looking to find answers.
 He finally ordained in the year 2481 under LP Sin (A senior monk in the province with over 70 pansas/years of monkhood) in Wat Nong Tao also in Utthaitani, he was 25 years of age. After passing his pali and Buddistic exams he moved on to Wat Patsutawa Janwad Sarkon Nakorn where he would meet his main preceptor Luang Pu Mun Buritatoe and would follow him for the next 42 years in tudong (forest monkhood).
.LP Pina along with fellow students of the great Arjan Mun would travel (Via walking) far and wide with nothing but their alms bowls and robes to a total of five countries including Burma, Laos, Cambodia even as far as India where they visited all the known Buddistic locations in their quest for pilgrimage and to learn and progress in their quest to reach higher realms during meditation.
During his journey back to/in Thailand he would raise funds to build temples (30 in total) throughout Thailand the more notable ones being
-          Wat Tan Sulatkang Janwad Nakorn Si Tammarat
-          Wat Tan Quay Janwad Petchaboon (Where earlier amulets were produced)
-          Wat Sanamlao (His final temple and location where he attained Arahanghood)
LP Pina relocated to Saraburi in 2527 and would build his last temple Wat Sanamlao which was completed in 2530 and would spend his last 19 pansas (rain retreats) there before attaining arahanghood (A state where one is completely detached to the material world) on the 13 of November 2545 at 0514hrs.
 LP Pina was known to be one of Thailand’s greatest mediation masters having learnt meditation from perhaps the greatest masters of all time Luang Pu Mun Buritoe, and being closer associates with Luang Ta Mahabua of Wat Pla Bundat Janwad Udonthani, was above to achieve high levels of mediation concentration reaching higher realms. This along with wiccha (magic) that LP Pina learnt over 42 years of being a forest monk enabled him to create some of the most powerful amulets ever made. Having built 30 temples, LP Pina also accumulated a lot of merits (Boon) which is another factor that leads to the ability of creating good amulets.
Being able to attain high levels of meditation LP Pina also obtained additional wiccha taught to him by a Deva (during his meditation in a higher realm) called Prah Palimard or Prah Sood. Namely The Dao (Star amulets), Duang Tar Pattien, Palakid Hua Chamut, Palakid Ling Tong Kum, Yoni, Tarkruts Debuk and several other deva or Buddha amulets which are  very sought after today.
