The Venerable Grandfather, Tim Isariko of Wat Lahaan Rai, Rayong Province is currently gaining a reputation as the most popular master.
As a monk, he has demonstrated an exquisite spirituality and incredible Buddhist supernatural powers, whether they be invulnerability or merciful deeds of kindness, shielding him from peril and manifesting themselves in the form of those who worship him or have possession of the amulets of the Venerable Grandfather Tim currently sought by both ordinary citizens and collectors of Buddhist amulets.
Those in possession of these amulets cherish them, because of their personal experiences with the amulets which have brought about the greatest faith.
Although the Venerable Grandfather Tim has gone to his eternal rest, his sacredness remains. The faith of his followers has not diminished in any way. When the Venerable Grandfather Tim was still alive, many of his followers asked him, "Venerable Grandfather, upon which idols of worship will we depend when you have passed on?"
The Venerable Grandfather Tim pointed to a young monk who had also come to serve to the Venerable Grandfather Tim that day and replied, "Over there, His Grace, Sakorn. He has studied a great deal." His Grace Sakorn of whom the Venerable Grandfather Tim spoke was none other than the Venerable Father Sakorn Manunyo of Wat Nong Krab, the Venerable Grandfather Tim's number one pupil receiving every one of his teachings.
The Holy Instructor Manunthammawat or the Venerable Father 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:
The Venerable Father 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 the Venerable Father 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 Venerable Father 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. The Venerable Father Sakorn studied until he had completed a regimen of courses, his curiosity and interest leading the Venerable Father Sakorn to receive instruction from many and various other great masters of the supernatural
An amazing story to note is that when a marine soldier stepped on a landmine, he was propelled into the air and spun around. His friends then ran to see him, only to discover that he had not been harmed in any way. When it was found that this marine was wearing only an amulet of Ajahn Sakorn around his neck at the time, a lot of people came to ask for these amulets from the Venerable Father.
Venerable Father Sakorn received the royal title of "Phra Kru Chan Tho" or Holy Instructor, Master Level,
In 1965 A.D., the Holy Instructor Kliangtham Thiyo, the ninth Abbot of Wat Nong Krab, passed away and the inhabitants of Nong Krab travelled to see the Venerable Grandfather Tim at Wat Lahaan Pai in order to entreat for the return of the Venerable Father Sakorn Manunyo to become the Abbot of Wat Nong Krab. The Venerable Grandfather Tim granted his permission.
The Venerable Father Sakorn returned to become the Abbot of Wat Nong Krab from that time forward. Even though he had become the Abbot of Wat Nong Krab, he did not forsake the Venerable Grandfather Tim as his mentor and often returned to pay respect and always see to the care of the Venerable Grandfather Tim until the Venerable Grandfather Tim passed away in 1975 A.D.
The Venerable Father Sakorn was the guiding force in arranging the funeral of the Venerable Grandfather Tim, as a true disciple should, until other followers of the Venerable Grandfather Tim praised and admired the Venerable Father Sakorn. In his pursuit of varied supernatural knowledge, the Venerable Father Sakorn never deserted his study of Buddhist disciplines and when he received the title of Abbot of Wat Nong Krab, a historical temple of more than 200 years which had once been razed to the ground, he was not inactive as Abbot.
Rather, he refurbished, reconstructed and maintained the new buildings for the use of monks and Buddhist laymen in practicing their religion. Another special ability of the Venerable Father was that he possessed talent in sculptural arts and fine arts, including wood carving, sculpting patterns and mural drawing murals, as well as the pasting of gold leaves. He therefore included his own hands-on work to the renovation and construction of the various temple structures.
