When Luang Phor Koon was 7 years old , his grandfather brought him to study Thai and Pali under Ah Jahn Cheum, Ajahn Saai and Pra Ajahn Lee in a temple near his house. Luang Phor Koon was ordained as a monk at the age of 21 years old at Wat Thanon HakYai on 5th May BE 2487. Phra Kru Wijahn Dtigit was the preceptor. Phra Kru Atigahn Torng Suk was his dhamma teacher. His monk's name was Pisuttoh.
Luang Phor Koon stayed in Wat Thanon HakYai to study dhamma, in addition Luang Phor Koon also learnt under Luang Daeng Wat Nong Poh. He learned dhamma, sammahdti and Wichah (magic). Luang Phor Koon was very diligent and studied hard
Seeing that Luang Phor Koon was so keen in learning, Luang Phor Daeng brought him to meet Luang Phor Kong who was the abbot of Wat HatYai. Luang Phor Koon became a disciple of Luang Por Kong who was in fact a forest monk, whom he was to accompany on long journeys in the jungles and forests.
Besides dhamma and sammahdti, Luang Phor Kong also taught Luang Phor Koon Wichah (magic) and tye technique of inserting takrut into a person's arm. After learning from Luang Phor Kong for some time, Luang Por Koon went Tudong alone. He went as far as Laos and Cambodia, remaining in the jungles for many years.
Luang Por Koon returned to Thailand after a period of 10 years, and resided at Wat Bahn Rai, Nakon Raatchaseemah. The first time, Luang Phor Koon came to Wat Bahn Rai, the temple was in a delapitated state. There was only a old Salah (shether), Bot (hall) and Guti (place where a Buddha Statue is generally placed).
Luang Phor Koon was determined to re-build this temple. He approached the abbot of the temple at that time, and asked for his help. The abbot told him that the temple did not have sufficient funds (only 10,000 Baht) and asked Luang Phor Koon how much money he required to re-build the temple. Luang Phor Koon replied that he needed 3 to 4 million Baht.
When the abbot heard that, he said that he had no ability to help, though it was his duties. Luang Phor Koon, then asked the villagers and his lay disciples to source for fund. Many people came forward and helped. The total fund collected was almost 2 million baht and Wat Bahn Rai was re-built.
For almost 20 years, Luang Phor Koon chanted and inserted takrut, but now Luang Phor Koon had stopped due to poor health. However, he will still meet and bless the devotees who go to Wat Bahn Rai to pay respect to him.
