Kata Luang Por Kasem Khemago
(Praying and paying reverence to the Sacred Buddha relics and images around the Universe)
Tan Khemago Bhikkhu (Luang Phu Kasem, or, Luang Por Kasem, Khemago), was an extremely revered monk of the Lanna tradition who the is considered one of the greatest Ajarn of modern Thai history, and has a massive and devoted following in the North of Thailand (and indeed all over the country). His devotees believe that to pay reverence to him or wear his amulets, results in receiving protection and safety wherever they go.
His amazing dedication to his practice and purity is common knowledge with Thai people, which is easy to see since the very beginning of his path as he gave up the title of abbot of the temple and went to practice Vipassana Kammathana forest tradition methods residing in an old cemetery in the forest on a mountain side, which is where he remained practicing in humility and simplicity to the end of his mortal days.
Luang Por Kasem passed his Patipataa (Meditation and Dhamma practice), alone in solitude which is a cause of his being able to attain entrance to the points of Samadhi and subsequent Jhana access, controlling his bodily instincts and those of his psyche (psychological make-up and related aspects of his being).
He attained an extremely high level of ability in the psychic regions and was able to empower amulets with massive power. His amulets (including Monk Coins with his image) have been the source of many a tale of miracle events, and are extremely sought after and revered by Thai people of the Central, Northeastern and especially the Northern areas. It is a known fact that he was not even attached to his food, and that it was seen that the food he was offered as alms often simply went putrid and was not eaten.
He only ate to keep his body alive, but never for pleasure or mental need. Luang Por would always receive any offerings in his Badtr (alms bowl) and then ‘Phae Metta’ (send Metta offerings back) to the people. Tan Luang Por Kasem Khemago was a good Bhikkhu with Pure heart and Sila (Moral Precepts/Virtue), and was full of Dhamma, living the Dhamma as it arose, stood fast and then faded away in the sequence of Tilakkhana as expounded to be the nature of all things (Anicca – Impermanence, Dhukkha – Unsatisfactoriness, and Anatta – Non-Self).
The Khom Kata in Pali below the image of Luang Por Tan Jai Buddha on rear face says 'Sappē Chanā Sukhidtā Hōndtu (which means 'May all Beings Be Happy') Ma A U Na Mō Put Tā Ya Mā Rē Sō Na Ma Pa Ta Na Chā Li Dti'. The name of the temple (Wat Pra Jao Tan Jai) and the edition (Build the Pratu Khoeng Gate and the Prajao Tan Jai Bridge edition), are inscribed encircling the edge of the locket. The lower section of the locket has the words 'Choke Dee Tan Jai' meaning 'Good Luck to Fulfil Your Heart's Desires'.
It is said that Luang Por practiced until he had done away with all his Kilesas, and is full of the Baramee (Ten Perfections), and is to this day the source of well being and confidence of those who revere him, wear his amulets, and follow his teachings, and example of a good practitioner of the Dhamma, and a good Savaka (disciple) of the Lord Buddha.
