Luang Phor Hin Intawin-yo, officially called Prakru Sungkaruk Hin was one of the most famous monks from Wat Rakhang, Bangkok. He used to be an assistant to Jaokun Prathepsittinayok (Luang Phor Nak), the former abbot of the temple during that period.

Luang Phor Hin Intawin-yo, was born to the “Sukasem” family on November 9th, B.E.2442, at 06.30 pm, in a province of Cambodia known as “Prewang”.

He was ordained a novice at a young age but returned home aged 15 to help his parents in the rice fields. Six years later, on May 30th, B.E.2463, he was officially ordained as a Buddhist monk at Wat Tanakun by three sacred Khmer monks namely Phra Ratanawongsa, Prha Acharn Ram, Phra Mongkoltera, who acted as Phra Upacha, Phra Karmavajacharn and Phra Anusavanacharn respectively.

Sacred Sciences

Luang Phor Hin dedicated his life to study both Lord Buddha’s Dharma and sacred sciences. He specialized in a sacred science called “Trinisinghe”,  later used to create many of his sacred amulets released from Wat Rakhang.

He had travelled into many deep forests of Cambodia and Burma to learn higher meditation, and in BE 2465 visited many provinces in Thailand including Kabinburi, Nakornnayok and Saraburi.

At Saraburi Province it is known that he paid homage to Lord Buddha’s sacred footprints at Wat Pra Buddhabart before he decided to return to Cambodia.

It was during his stay at Wat Tanakun, Luang Poo Hin became famous particularly for his higher level meditation, but he still wanted to learn more and made the decision to  travel to India for a prolonged period. Unfortunately his companion, another monk died en-route in Tark province Thailand. His plans were cancelled.

Instead he remained in Tark Province forthree months before travelling to Chiang Mai and Burma again before returning to Thailand to stay at Wat Buddhaprang, Sukhothai Province.

It wasn't long after before he was on the move again, this time to Wat Tangluang, Ayudhaya Province, where he stayed with a former friend  “Pra Thep”.

He worked very hard at Wat Tangluang,  helping to renovate the many dilapidated buildings at the temple. It was here that he also had the opportunity to learn many more sacred sciences from famous guru monks such as Luang Phor Jong of Wat Nartangnok, famous for his sacred amulets that could help protect and individual from danger, especially from bullets and bombs during world war II.



Luang Phor Hin Intawin-yo, although specialized in many sacred sciences, never stopped learning as much as he could , and in pursuit of further knowledge decided to visit Wat Rakhang, Bangkok in BE 2478, after having heard about Somdej Phra Buddhacharn Toh.

At Wat Rakung he met Luang Phor Nak, who was then abbot of the temple. Luang Phor Nak having met Luang Phor Hin invited him to remain permanently at the temple.
Once again Luang Phor Hin  dedicated his life to conservation and repair of the temple.

Whilst at the temple Luang Phor Hin created many sacred amulets to help gain funds to support the renovation work, clearly demonstrating his  heartfelt dedication to help develop Buddhism in Thailand.


Sacred Amulets

Luang Phor Hin highly respected Phra Buddhacharn Toh. and as such for years collected many old and damaged amulets of the supreme sacred monk. He used this material to create all his amulets, believing that the efficacy would be that much greater.

Apart from the ground somdej amulets he also used many other sacred powders to create his unique mixture, such as Pongpilun , Pongsuriyabart and  Pong Trinisinghe, etc.

During the period B.E.2482 to B.E.2515, Luang Phor Hin created eight series of sacred amulets as follows: mentioned.
