The Principle Buddha (Lucky Buddha) 

       Phra Phuttha Thewawirat is the Principle Buddha image situated in the Ordination Hall.  He was beautifully carved from pure white stone with the measurement of 14w X 20h inches in the posture of ‘Subduing Mara’ (Pang Malwichai).  King Rama III brought him over from the Grand Royal Palace and placed him in the elegant Whetchayan Pavillion. Then, King Bhumipol Adulyadej (King Rama IX) renamed the Buddha Image as Phra Phuttha Thewawirat.  However, most people prefer calling him as Luang Pho Khao (White Buddha).

History and prestige of Sunthornphu

       Sunthornphu was born on Monday, in the eighth month of the first waxing moon, in the year of the Horse of the traditional Thai zodiac, on 26th June  B.E. 2329. This was in the ear of early

       Rattanakosin. He separated from his parents when still essentially underage and moved to settle in Muang Klang, Rayong. While approximately 20,

He set out on a boat with his disciples to journey towards a number of districts in the passage. During this voyage, however, “ Nirad Muang Klang” Was Composed. He also depicted people‘s living conditions and their environment in detail, proven to be extremely useful for the studies of culture geography and economy of Thai villages. Later, he escorted Prince Phathomwongse to pay homage to the Buddha’s footprint in Saraburi. “Nirad  Phrabath”, in Which he described his experiences and referred to the differences that arisen between him and his wife, was composed during the journey.

       He was elected an advisor Poet to King Rama ll and was entitled “Khun Sunthorn Woharn. After King Rama ll passed away, Sunthorn Phu‘s enemy ascended the throne as king Rama lll. The poet was at once deprived of his title and position, and he had to take to the kindly shelter of the yellow robe at Wat Ratchadurana. During this period, he wrote several poems, one of the most notable being Nirat Phukhaothong, depicting sorrow and despair in life.

ln B.E. 2385, “Rumpunbhilarp” was composed recounting life sadness,

which appeals its readers to his autobiography. Nirat Muangpetch was the last

traveling rhyme composed.

       During this last period of his life, when he was under the patronage of His Majesty Phra Pin Klao (king Rama IV), he wrote Nirat Phra Prathom and

many other poems including lullabies for the royal children. He lived and wrote to a ripe old age. He died, a man of rank, position and fame, at the age of seventy, in 1855.

       The ideas suggested in his rhymes are beautiful and excellent and in accordance with Thai value and philosophies. They are deep and go along very well whit Thai attitudes and Buddhist beliefs of the early Ratanakosin era.
