Phor Tok, or official name of Chao khun Prarachsangwara Bhimonda, was a local of Bangkontee district, Samutsongkram province.
was born on March 27 B.E.2430 to the family of Mr.Loy and Mrs.Tub Ruttanakon, who had another child named Mr.Chuey , the younger
brother of LP Tok.
the time he was 13, both parents had passed away, and Long Phor Kaew, a relative, moved him away to stay at Wat Pradoochimplee,
where he was educated by Long Phoo Suek, the then abbot of the temple.
the age 17, he was ordained as a novice, but unfortunately a day after, LP Suek passed away.
a result Mr.Klai and Mrs.Pun, LP Suek's relatives, decided they would do all they could to support LP Tok until he was 20,
at which time he was ordained as a monk by LP Saeng (Phra Kru Sammana Tamsamahtahn) of Wat Paknam, at 3.30 PM., on July 16,
B.E.2540. Also present as a preceptor was Phra Kru TammawiRat (Chei) Wat GumPaeng.At
the time he was renamed as "Intasuwanno". after LP Suek, by the son of Mr Klai, LP Kum the Abbot of Wat Pradoochimplee.
Tok was a dedicated and merciful monk, highly respected by the locals, but he wanted to learn more about Lord Buddha's Dharma
and magic sciences. Because of his desire and quest for knowledge he actually moved away to Wat Bhoti in Bangkok.
It was not long however that the locals pleaded for his return.When LP Tok had reached the age of 26, LP Kum resigned from
his position at the temple, and LP Tok succeeded him. In fact he remained Abbot until his death at the age of 68 on March
Phor Tok himself was succeeded by LP Virojana-kittikun, who remains the current Abbot at the age of 94.
Tok was so interested in magic sciences that even before he was ordained as a monk he bwas learning from Long Phor Phromma
who was then the Abbot of Wat Pradoochimplee.After LP Phromma had passed away, LP Tok studied
under many senior monks such as LP Roong of Wat Takrabue, Samutsakorn province,
LP Nium of Wat Noi, Supanburi province, LP Pum Wat Bangklo, Bangkok.Moreover, Long Phor Pan of Wat Bangnomko, Ayudhaya
province, had introduced LP Tok to Luang Phor Nong, from whom he learned a lot of magic sciences, so much so that LP Tok regarded
him as his principal.
LP Tok began to join the Buddhist ceremonies he also attempted to seek further knowledge. A close follower of LP Tok revealed
that every time he was invited to a ceremony he would touch the sacred thread,
and incredibly would know the strength of the magic power, if the power was strong he would enquire as to who created the
sacred thread in order to learn further.
Phor Tok was involved in many mass chanting ceremonies such as Phra Somdej Long Phor Pae Roon Rahk chanting at Wat Suthat
in BE 2494, 25 Puttawat chanting in BE 2500, Phra Long Phor Thuad chanting at Wat Prasat in BE 2506, Phra Somdej 09 chanting
at Wat Bankhunprom in BE2509, Phra Somdej Roy Pee chanting at Wat Rakang in BE 2515
as Abbot of the temple, LP Tok would spend much time travelling to seek the knowledge that he desired.Beside the lay people,
the 9th or the present King of Thailand and the royal family respected Long Phor Tok very much. One can see from many photographs
of the royal family taken with Long Phor Tok.In BE2463, Luang Phor Toh chanted the first batch of amulets made of Neua Phong.
The most popular Pim from this batch is the Pra Somdej KaToh , which is very rare and expensive now.
that time, Long Phor Tok continued to chant many batches of amulets of many types, such as Phra Pidta, Somdej, Roop Meuan
and Rians etc. All Long Phor Tok's amulets are very well-proven to be able to protect people from accidents and hardship.
Indeed we have a variety of his amulets in stock including some of his very early pims as shown opposite.
