The Holy Instructor Manunthammawat or Luang Phor Sakorn is the most admired disciple and inheritor of Buddhist supernatural powers from the Venerable Grandfather Tim Isariko. An expert in supernatural and ancient medicine since childhood, he was formerly known as Sakorn Paisalee, born to farming parents on Tuesday, 3rd February, 1938, or the ninth waning day of the third lunar month.
His birth occurred in direct accordance with the ancient proverb that says that a person born on that day will possess exceptional abilities and meet with great success if he chooses to follow those abilities and, if evil, will possess incomparable wickedness. It also said that a person born under this sign would have an interest in supernatural powers of a spiritual kind. His father’s name was Mr. Ku and his mother’s name was Mrs. Nid. The Venerable Father Sakorn was born at Ban Thai Thung, Mu 2, Tambon Nong Krab, Amper Ban Khai (Ban Thai Thung is also the birthplace of the Venerable Grandfather Tim).
The Venerable Father Sakorn’s siblings consisted of his sister and himself: Luang Phor Sakorn began primary education at Grade 1 when he was five years of age at Wat Nong Krab School and attended there until he completed Grade 4. In 1947, he left school to help his father and mother with rice farming. In his free time, he would go to Ban Lahaan Rai in order to study the supernatural with Mr. Lor and Mr. Thad, both considered experts on the subject at that time. He also regularly served the Venerable Grandfather Tim and was counted upon as a young disciple to whom the Venerable Grandfather Tim showed kindness whenever calling upon him for his service, due to his personality and interest in the supernatural from childhood.
As he grew into a young man, he gained possession of supernatural powers, which he never used to destroy others, but always to help his peers. At the age of 20 years, his mother and other relatives joined in arranging his ordination ceremony into the monkhood at Wat Nong Krab on Wednesday, 4th June, 1958, with the Holy Instructor Jantharothai (the Venerable Father Ding) presiding over the ceremony and performing the ordination ceremony. Wat Pai Lom was the place of his instruction and where he received the name of “Manunyo.”
Once ordained for the monkhood, he travelled to Wat Lahaan Rai for the Buddhist Lent, where he became a disciple of the Venerable Grandfather Tim in order to dedicate himself to learning holy disciplines and Buddhist supernatural powers from the Venerable Grandfather Tim. He received instruction in various chants in their entirety from the Venerable Grandfather Tim who held nothing back, fully instructing him in all aspects. He studied until he had developed a clear understanding of these matters and was adept at performing them.
Once he had developed expertise in the supernatural matters that he had studied, a love of these aspects led him to seek instruction from the Venerable Father Peng Sasano at Wat Lahaan Yai, who had formerly served as a royal guard for Krom Luang Chumphorn Khet Udomsak and studied in the powers of the supernatural with the Venerable Grandfather Suk at Wat Pak Klong Makham Tao. Possessing the power of invulnerability, he would demonstrate this by writing one single letter of ancient script on a lead slate for someone to attempt to shoot, whereby the bullet would never leave the gun.
When Luang Phor Sakorn had sufficiently been instructed by the Venerable Father Peng, he received advice from the Venerable Grandfather Tim to go and study with the Venerable Grandfather Hin at Wat Nong Sanom, during which time he was blessed by the Venerable Grandfather Hin’s imparting of his knowledge. After his study of the supernatural with the Venerable Grandfather Hin, the Luang Phor Sakorn travelled to study with the Venerable Grandfather Som at Wat Ban Chong, Amper Phan Thong, Chonburi Province, who was yet another monk possessing supernatural powers in the eastern region.
Luang Phor Sakorn studied until he had completed a regimen of courses, his curiosity and interest leading the Luang Phor Sakorn to receive instruction from many and various other great masters of the supernatural as follows: 1960 A.D. Travelled to study with Professor Chiang Kham in Rangoon, Burma 1963 A.D Studied with Professor Sin at Wat Na Wang, Amper Bang Lamung, 1975 A.D Travelled to study with Professor Supot in Cambodia. 1980 A.D Studied with the Holy Professor Sumon Kham Siang in Sri Saket 1982 A.D
Studied with the Venerable Father Bunyen at Wat Chang Nok, Nakorn Ratchasima 1983 A.D Studied with the Venerable Father Khun at Wat Ban Rai, Amper Dan Khun Thot, Nakorn Ratchasima 1984 A.D Studied with the Venerable Father Akhom at Wat Dao Nimit, Petchaboon 1985 A.D Studied with the Venerable Father Beum at Wat Prasartkin, Prachinburi Luang Phor Sakorn further studied with various and many other great masters in the use of supernatural powers including both monks and laymen.
