The photo above is Ven. LP Thong originally from Wat Tham Jakgajan Thong in Lopburi. But now Ven. is always with Ven. LP Seua of Wat Donyaipeuan. Ven. LP Thong is Ven. LP Seua’s teacher, Ven. LP Seua is his chosen disciple. Even Ven. LP Thong passed away long ago but Ven. is always around to help and guide Ven. LP Seua. Venerable is someone we refer to as saksit keramat or sacred teacher. I still remember, even though we always invite Ven. LP Seua along with his lay disciple Ah Pui to our center in Kuala Lumpur. But one of our member whom have just joined us saw 2 monk instead with 1 lay disciple. I thought he was joking with me but he was serious he asked. When I showed him Ven. LP Thong’s photo and he regconised it was this old Reverend. Then I told him, Venerable passed away long ago, his jaw dropped!!! But I assured him that he became a celestial or thevada now guiding Ven. LP Seua always.
Ven. LP Thong is highly respected by villagers in Singhburi, patrons of Wat Donyaipeuan, Ven. LP Seua and not to mentioned Ven. LP Pae of Wat Phikhunthong. When Reverend was still alive, he usually call Ven. LP Pae, Phrakru and Ven. LP Pae refer to Reverend as Archan. Reverend is highly respected by many because Reverend has helped many to fulfill their wished or get their problem solved.
This year we would like to sponsor 30 9″ Ven. LP Thong bucha to help raise Bot building funds for Wat Donyaipeuan. Each sponsor of RM1,500 will get one bucha. It will only be ready after pansa or kathina.

It states here this coming 19th October 2014, Sunday. Any sole or joint sponsor of Kathin contribution of THB9,999, Venerable LP Seua will present them a 3 inch Ven. LP Thong bucha ( sample below). This batch of bucha just like our 9 inch, will be ploksek during pansa. After Ven. LP Seua ploksek in the morning at the chanting hall, Ven. LP Thong, himself will be present in spirit to ploksek too. The hall will be vacated after Ven. LP Seua finished his puthaphisek. This will be done during the entire pansa. This mini 3 inch can be placed both in the home for reverence and car for protection too!
This is Ven. LP Thong’s image in his viharn not far away from Ven. LP Seua’s kuti. Whenever Ven. LP Seua is busy or feeling unwell, if layties come to seek Ven. LP Seua to help solve their problems, Ven. will direct them to go to the viharn and lit 9 joss sticks and tell Ven. LP Thong their problems. Ask Reverend to help solve their problems and “gae bon” fulfill your promise by offering to lit fire crackers to Reverend outside his viharn.
This is the cave Reverend stays for his practise, Wat Tham Jakgajan Thong. Now beside this cave, there is a temple now.
The stairs to track up to his cave. Along this path are some worn down kutis.
This is where Reverend passed away in one of this kuti, due to old age.
This Pu Reusi is right at the entrance of the cave. This Reusi image was made by Reverend.
This is where Reverend sits in meditation. It’s a very cooling and peaceful surrounding. It is said that whenever Ven. LP Seua visits this cave, there will be very loud wringing sound made by cicadas. It is in this cave that lives 2 tigers, mother and child when Reverend was staying here. Reverend said even tigers such as this two that lives with him has good barami and virtues not lesser than humans because the tigers will pay respect before leaving the cave for their activities.
Reverend sits facing this Big Buddha image, also made by Reverend. This is a very spiritual cave, people whom are sensitive enough will be able to sense that this cave has occupants. Not many people can come up here, not even the monks in the nearby vicinity can make use of this place as they like. I have asked Ven. LP Seua before what is in that cave, Reverend didnt really say exactly but he said it has some very ancient things here.
Maybe there will be some whom will ask, “Why and what is Ven. LP Thong bucha good for?” From our own experiences and those of villagers in Singhburi and Ven. LP Seua’s close laity diciples, Ven. LP Thong’s image is good for not only protection from danger but also to help solve our lives’ problem. That is why they call Reverend “saksit keramat” or sacred. One of Ven. LP Seua’s laity disciple was an average entrepreneur dealing with oil and gas. It is a very small business. 2 years ago he came to Ven. LP Seua for consultation. He wanted to enter into a business tender by PTT (Thai national petroleum company) but Ven. said his chances are not strong because other bigger competitors whom have many years of experience are entering into the tender too. He asked if Ven. LP Seua had any form of blessings to help him gain a better advantage. Ven. LP Seua asked him to revere to Ven. LP Thong at the viharn, tell reverend the issue at hand and asked him for his blessings. Ven. LP Seua instructed him to use our special joss-sticks (most saleable item in temple) everyday to reach Ven. LP Thong and ask him for his blessings. He emerged as the wining bidder, last year he made much donations and contributions to Wat Donyaipeuan. This year he sponsored for Ven. LP Seua’s birthday last May. His family’s livelihood had increased many folds positively.
According to Ven. LP Seua, Ven. LP Thong has reached the 10th level in Celestial realm, now in Thevada ( Celestial ) form.
