BE 2426, Ayuthaya, approximately 124 years ago, a great white robe master; Ajahn Fon DeeSawang was born. He gained his popularity about 60-70 years ago prior to his magnificent Visha magic.
He had contracted a strange disease when he was a child and subsequently he lost most of the part of his nose. Inevitably, Ajahn Fon looks unappealing. By the age of 10, his parents sent him to study at a temple.
There’s no standard schooling system in that era. In custom, Thai people will usually send their kids to gain knowledge at temples nearby. But, he has learning difficulties especially in recognizing words. All he could write was his own name.
As expected, many children do not like Ajahn Fon because of his awkward facial appearance and refuses to play with him. Luckily, his luck did not run out completely.
The abbot of the temple, Lung Phor Krot due to compassion, decided to teach Ajahn Fon metta katha to improve his relationship with others. He manages to learn the skill and katha in a very short duration.
Though he is illiterate, he has a hidden talent. His memory power is superbly strong. All knowledge and katha that he learn is through memory. Of course he needs his friends to read to him first.
After he had mastered the metta katha, he began to do some experiment on his own. His subject is those who dislike him. True enough, when he started to chant the katha, miraculously, they began to treat Ajahn Fon better.
Seeing this effect, Ajahn Fon quickly went back to learn more from his master Lung Phor Krot. But sad news ensued from his search. Lung Phor Krot had passed away.
He was in despair. He remained in his master’s room for quite some time; mourning; and like predestined, he managed to find a khata book that contains Visha’s knowledge written by his master.
Thus he learned it all and became a monk in his early 20’s. He begins his practice by becoming a tudong monk or loosely translated, forest monk. In his journey in the jungle, accidentally he found a temple, Wat Kai Fa and the abbot of that time; Lung Phor Dee mercifully let him stay at.
Ajahn Fon appreciated the abbot’s kindness. Ajahn Fon is very diligent. He sweeps and clean the temple’s compound everyday.
One night, with desire to learn knowledge pulsating in his veins, he went to visit Lung Phor Dee. When he finally reaches the room, he found out that the abbot is not in. All of a sudden, he saw Lung Phor Dee appears out from a bumble.
Instantly, he knew that the abbot possessed supernatural power and wishes to be as good as him. He decided to try his luck other time.
During his stay in Wat Kai Fa, he had experienced strange incidents. One of the encounters begins when he heard weeping echoes from deep of the forest. Out of curiosity, Ajahn Fon decided to investigate and went into the forest alone.
He was now in the heart of the jungle, and nothing is in sight. He took few more steps towards the crying direction and finally he saw an old woman. An old woman, in the dead of night, alone in the jungle.
With no fear in his heart, Ajahn Fon confronted the old lady. The lady began to speak in sad tone. She introduces herself as an old tree spirit (Tong Dart Kian). She implores Ajahn Fon to help her and reward is certain.
After she finished her words, she disappeared into thin mist. He did not know how to help or what is the meaning of it. As he lay on his matt thinking, he fell asleep. The next morning, he heard rumours spreading that villager nearby wanted to cut down an old tree inside of the jungle.
Realizing that this maybe what the old lady said, he rushed to prevent those villagers from doing so. Preliminary, his effort fails and almost got himself beaten by them. Knowing that they are beyond reasoning, he began to concentrate and chant metta katha.
When he finished, again he ask them to stop. This time, things changed. Unbelievably, those villagers became more calm and rational. As extra, they promised not to chop the old tree again. How powerful is Ajahn Fon.
After a few days had passed, the tree spirit visited him when he was deep in meditation. She rewarded him, as promise, the direction of katha scripts. Following the direction, he found the scripts comprising the katha to stop bleeding, to heal poisonous snake bite, to transform leaf into bee and many more.
He knew he had learned something different from his contemporaries. Beginning from there, he began to perform miracles. One of his most stunning acts is cutting a long wound in his leg and heals it immediately with katha
Wat Sa Kiat, the temple of Sangkarat Keaw, is where his final monkshood end. As usual, he will perform his magic everywhere he goes and this time, his act is denied by the monks in Wat Sa Kiat.
According to those monks, performing siddhi power is forbidden by Lord Buddha himself. Having considering this fact and to preserve the good name of Buddhism, he decided to leave and became a white robe master as he knows he is too fond to let go performing miracles.
As said, Ajahn Fon do not have an appealing face. But with all his power and metta katha he could make his face very attractive and seductive. Lots of women who laugh at his face will eventually be his lover in bed or his wife. Ajahn Fon is well known to have many wives and children.
Comparably to General Khun Phen from Suphanburi, Ajahn Fon’s metta power is higher. Khun Phen needs to add barangs’ mixture into women’s food to attract them but Ajahn Fohn simply uses mind power and katha.
Ajahn Fon is different from many white robe masters. In order to be his disciples, they have to go through special intern-taking ceremony; that’s to be bitten by snake and Ajahn Fon will perform miracle to heal them immediately.
BE 2480, Ajahn Fon had a predicted that in three years time, there will be a war. He told his disciples and devotees did not comprehend what he had said. BE 2483, the well known IndoChina war finally broke up.
The Thai King that time ordered all famous monks in the kingdom into the palace to consecrated votive amulets to be given to the soldiers to confer them protection. But out of so many white robe ajahn, only Ajahn Fon is invited.
But as he does not know how to write, his consecration of his phayant’s are utmost unusual. He uses sharp knives to stab his mouth palate and spew his blood into hundreds copies of phayants.
The stabbing is a repetitive actions and he doesn’t seem to feel any pain at all. Those soldiers that possessed the blood phayant are all safe despite some minor injuries.
BE 2489, Ajahn Fon passed away at the age of 63.
