Hand and Fire under water

Dear Luang Phaw,

I have immigrated to the United States since 1972, which is thirty-five years in total.  I am one of the founders who built Meditation Centre in Florida.  I had cast twenty Buddha’s images and was the primary sponsor of Kathina ceremony in 2005 and the secondary sponsor of Kathina in 2003, 2004, and 2006.  I have accrued a number of merits.  I am also a real fan of Dream-in-Dream kindergarten school and watch Case Study show since it was broadcasted via Internet.

On the Master Dhammakaya day of 7 September 2006, it was the day that the image of Luang Pu Wat Paknam was relocated to Maha Phramonkolthepmuni Mahavihara. At Florida Meditation Centre, although it was 4 o’clock in the morning, 50 followers cheerfully participated in the ceremony as if we were sitting at the Centre of the ceremony in Thailand.

Around 7:30am, one virtuous friend went to take deep breathe in front of the Centre. He exclaimed with excitement, “Today, the sun is beautiful with frequent blink and blue ring.  We were excited to look at a miracle of crystal sun with joyful goose-stand and tears.

There were three people who saw the Golden Luang Pu.  For me, I only saw pink waves spreading out from the sun reaching the skyline.  From what I have told, I would like my Dream-in-Dream kindergarten friend to rejoice on this merit.

Now, I would like to know the law of karma of mine and my family’s.  I am requesting for your mercy to clarify queries as follows:

My father is from Kwae Yai, Nakornsawan province.  People here own a number of lands.  However, they prefer to have a house on raft, so called a floating house.  On the floating house, my father experienced strange things without answers.

He told me 2-3 stories.  First, at the time he was in the 12th Grade, while cheerfully swimming at a deep and cold section in Kwae River, he saw something white underwater approaching his leg.  It was a small and lean hand like that of a woman.  But, he could not see the body and he suddenly swam away and got up onto the floating house.

Second, when he had ordained for four rainy seasons, there was a year that the temple got flooded.  While standing and staring at the flooding in the pergola, he saw some sparkling from the water.  Suddenly, he fully saw a diamond axe.  He called novices to look.  The novices also saw it.

Another story is that one time there was a voice all over the River.  This made people shroud in panic.  They came out to see a big fireball floating along the Kwae River.

My father was an accountant at Tobacco factory in Bangkok.  He did not drink, but smoked.  He could quit smoking when he was thirty years old.  He has two wives who are first mother (my mother) and second mother.  They stayed at the same house.  They never fought.  When he was eighty-one years old, he started to get sick from Lymph node cancer spreading to stomach area.  He passed away at the age of eighty-five.

My mother is a kind and generous person.  She has been accruing merits for all of her life.  She is ninety-six years old and having problems with her memory.

For me, when I was 7-8 years old, I used to light a match on red ants for fun.  “If the red ants disturb you, do not fire them as it is demerit.”  You should only chase them away.  When I was twelve years only, I played with a gas gun like other kids and used to roll gunpowder in long rolling paper.

That day, I bought ten of them.  I sliced at the middle of the paper roll by knife and rubbed it.  The gunpowder exploded over my head.  Because of fear, I used my right hand to extinguish the gunpowder and it worked.  My hands were burnt and turned dark.  My four fingers were black and stuck together like monkey’s hand.  It was very painful and I was unconscious.  The doctor had to give me medication for three months to fully recover.

When I was young, my parents liked to perform merit at Wat  Parknam Pasricharoen, and often offering sustenance to the Lord Buddha with KhunYay Tongsuk Samdangpan. I had a chance to meditate at the first wooden house, which has a cut-off pole head in the middle of the house.

This house was a small house and old, but it was very clean. A wall was shiny, it seemed like it had been rubbed.  My father once went to ask for Khun Yay Tongsuk’s perfection to remove his bad luck by performing fish release ceremony. Khun Yay Tongsuk had mercy to perform for him by using a needle to pierce his fingertip and he bled a little.

Unfortunately, my father‘s blood was directed to her forehead. She suddenly closed her eye for meditation, and then she said “Oh! My brother…I thought someone else”. She told that my father was once her brother in previous life.

After Khun Yay Tongsuk passed away, Khun Yay Acharn Upasika Chan Konnokyoong became a leader of offering sustenance to the Lord Buddha ceremony continuously.

My family continued to join offering sustenance to the Lord Buddha ceremony. This made me had a chance to know one senior from Kaset Sart University, who was a good looking, tall, neat, and talks less, and he was very handsome. I was very impressed.

When the time came for me to ordain at Wat Paknam, I had a chance to stay in the same monastic dwelling with him. After one year, I disrobed and followed Dhammakaya community to build a temple at Klong Luang, Patthumthani.   

Father of my wife was Chinese, but he did not worship his God and only his ancestors. He did not understand Buddhism, but he had never offended his family to accrue merit. He was very kind, and he owned drug store. He also liked to distribute medicine to the patients for free. He died with diabetes at the age of 72 years.

Mother of my wife passed away while she sat with a neighbor at the age of 80 years.

My daughter was a smart girl and good looking. She was very strong, she had only cold. After she turned 19 years old, she was allergic to sun light severely. When exposed to sun light she would feel pain and have swellings at her joints especially shoulder and neck. She had to take medication to alleviate.

She liked to wake up and feel the morning sun light. One day in the morning, she convulsed and was unconscious for couple days. She was helped by respirator. The doctor said her kidney was not efficient, and could not save her life.

The doctor said we have no choice, but I thought that I have a choice and I chose to save her life with merit. I performed offering to the monastic order as a whole, free animals and fishes, and invite Buddhist monks for prayers.

During that time, I had a strange dream that a very tall black man, who was dressed in black, came to knock my door and hand me a red rose.

After that my daughter was getting better until she could go home, but she had to clean her kidney for 3 months afterward and took medication.

After 3 years, she had swelling again, and was admitted to a hospital. This time the doctor said her kidney was worn out, and she had to clean her kidney every 3 days her entire life or have a new kidney. Therefore, my wife gave one kidney to her.  

During that critical time, I called my friend in Thailand about this, and he said I had to attain an enormous merit. I suddenly reacted by joining 300,000 Buddha images casting, Khun Yay’s refectory merits, offering medicine to ill monks, and giving animal lives. The outcome was my wife was in normal condition.  

My daughter was in operating room for 4 hours, but the outcome was very satisfactory. On the second day after being operated, she was in serious condition and had severe stomachache. A doctor did the surgery again, and found that the kidney’s pipe was a little long, which made it twisted and urine could not pass by.  

My daughter currently has a normal life; she drives to school, and spends her routine life as before. She said that she is a super ant.


1) What factors brought about a miracle of crystal sun?

Why we live far away in Florida, and could see a miracle of crystal sun? Is there any good sign to tell us?

2) My father saw an underwater hand chasing his legs and older people told him that it was mermaid calling him to be her husband. Is the story true?
Why did my father survive?

Is the diamond axe that my father saw, the treasure that was buried under the church or hallucination? If it was real, why did it appear for my father to see?

How did the fire ball that Kwae river villagers saw, occur? Where is it? Why have new generations never seen it again?

3) Before my father passed away, I told him to recollect his merits that he cast Buddha statue for a temple in Nan province. Could he recollect the merits that I told him?

What was his omen of suffering when dying? Can the stream of merits he had accrued with Khun Yay Tongsuk help him to go back to the fourth level of heaven (Tusita)?

4) My mother is old and forgetful. She could not remember anything much; although, she has accrued merits all of her life. When her life comes to the end, can she recollect the merits and make her mind clear as I tell her to do?

How should I help my mother? I currently installed Dhamma Satellite for her and hire someone to take care of her 24 hours. Do I follow principles in a correct way? How is it so?

5) Why did my mother-in-law’s neck droop and she die suddenly? Where had my wife’s parents been reborn after passing away?

6) My elder brother; who is a son of my father’s second wife and served military as cavalryman as well as ordained for a year, passed away in a bathroom when he was 58 years old. What was his omen of suffering when dying? Where has he been reborn after passing away?

7) How had I accrued merits so that I have the opportunity to be part of the establishment of Ban Dhamma Prasith and Dhammakaya, and when I come to United States, I am a pioneer in establishing the meditation centre in Florida? How will I receive fruit of this wholesomeness?

8) What merits brought me to have an opportunity to stay in the same monk’s dwelling as the good looking venerable one during my ordination period?

9) When I was 7 to 8 years old, I lit matches and burnt red ants for fun because of my ignorance. When I was 12 years old, my hand was burnt? What retribution caused this incident?  Is it because I lit up the fire and burnt aunts?

What kamma made my daughter, when she was 19 years old, ill from strange disease; i.e. severely allergic to sun shine and kidney disease? What wholesomeness helped her survive when she had kidney disease at the earliest stage?

Why did I dream about a black man in black clothes handing a red rose to me and then my daughter recovered after that? Are these 2 situations related?

What merits helped her recover from sickness from kidney disease the second time? Why did she have to have 2 surgeries in a row?      

10) How were I, my wife and daughter related to kamma that my daughter has kidney disease?   

My wife had to give kidney to her. Is it her previous kamma or new wholesomeness?

What should she do to lessen the retribution and not let it surface in this life and next lives again?

How firm had my family had stream merits with Dhammakaya community?

I would like to pay my highest respects to you, Luang Phaw.

 Luang Phaw's Dream

I closed my eyes, dreamed and woke up with these answers.
When you tell anybody the story like a tale, it will make anyone know more about retribution (Law of Kamma)

1) A miracle of crystal sun happened subsequently by influences from merits and power of Luang Pu Wat Paknam on the Master Dhammakaya day when Nirvana of honourable Luang Pu Wat Paknam fully released multiple merit perfections as well as everyone’s mind there was joyful from merits and focused on honourable Luang Pu; hence, the meritorious mind was open so you were able to see the miracle of crystal sun. This event was an auspicious omen that Dhammakaya knowledge would be lighten there soon.

2) Your father saw an underwater hand chasing his leg and older people told him that it was mermaid calling him to be her husband. In fact, it was not mermaid but a kind of non-human (water sprite).  She did not chase your father to be her husband but to replace her to look after watercourse. Luckily, your father does not have retribution so he survived.
  • The diamond axe that your father saw was a delusive reflection from water surface. Do not take it seriously.
  • The fire ball that villagers saw was natural phenomenon not angel, ghost or spirit. Do not think about it.

3) Before your father passed away, you told him to recollect his merits that he cast Buddha statue for a temple in Nan province. This helped him to recollect his merits and his after life omen became bright. Stream of merits he had accrued with Khun Yay Tongsuk; i.e. offering sustenance to the Lord Buddha, connected to centre of his body so he left the world like sleeping and waking up in the middle of golden heavenly mansion in special merit zone, provider section in the fourth level of heaven (Tusita).

4) Your mother is forgetful. She remembers not much; although, she has accrued merits all of her life. It is not a present retribution but her past retribution. In one of her past lives, she was female trader, she liked to do small lie but often when she sold her goods. As a result of her past deeds, she is forgetful.

  • At the last minute of her life, she will be able to recollect merits as a foundation of her mind is well clear. You should help her in correct principle by often talking to her about merits, and installation of Dhamma Satellite is a correct way.

5) The reason that your mother-in-law’s neck droop and died suddenly is because her life span was over.
  • Both your father-in-law and mother-in-law become earth-sprite in an earth-sprite village after passing away.

6) Your older brother; who is a son of your father’s second wife and served military as cavalryman as well as ordained for a year, passed away when he was in a wash room because of his past bad deeds from slaughtering animals for snacks eating with liquor.
  • When he died, his after life omen was not clear, he was wandering around for 7 days before denizen brought him to purgatory. When he was in front of the god of death’s sentence court, he was able to recollect his merits so he was sent to humanly world. Not long after that, he was born as a human again.

7) In the past, when you accrued merits, you always offered first; although, you did not have much and made a wish to have a chance to be a pioneer in pursuing perfection. As a result of that, you have a chance to join merit since the beginning; i.e. building Ban Dhamma Prasith, Dhammakaya temple and, after moving to the US, the temple in Florida, as you wished. The fruit of this good deed is you will be born as a leader, in a leader family (either community leader or municipal leader).

  • If all merits together fully surface, you will be born in a family of country leader or world leader. Also, treasures will be waiting for you as well as you will attain Dhammakaya easily. These fruits are described briefly.

8) When you ordained, you had an opportunity to stay in the same monk’s dwelling as the good looking venerable because in the last Buddha aeon, you were a royal page soldier of the king who ordained, and followed him to ordain at the beginning but later you disrobed because you missed your girlfriend. However, prior to disrobe, you made a wish to be close to the king in next life again and that is the reason that you had an opportunity to stay in the same monk’s dwelling.

9) The retribution you got when you were 7-8 years old that you lit matches and burnt red ants for fun was only a supplementary kamma to cause your hand being burnt when you were 12 years old. The main retribution that caused this incident was, in the past, you would like to have fun so you tortured bad behaving slaves by tying slaves with a flambeau until the flame reached the slave’s hand to torture him before releasing him later. 

10) When your daughter was 19 years old, she was ill from strange disease; i.e. severely allergic to sun shine. This is because, in the past life, when your daughter was born as a young girl of good behaviour, in her childhood, she liked to throw live fish; that was confined in earth jar, on floor in sun shine and enjoyed to look when it was writhing and use wood stick to scratch them amusingly.

  • Later, she had kidney disease, had to do dialysis and replaced with new kidney because of retribution from the life that she was a young girl of good behaviour. When she grew up, she liked to loan money to others with extremely high interest rate. If the borrowers did not have money to repay, she would take over their plots, treasures. However, she survives because of merits she has accrued with Dhammakaya community both in the past and present.
  • You dreamt about a black man in black clothes handing a red rose to you and your daughter recovered after that. It did not relate to your daughter’s illness. The dream was from unusual body element and worried mind. Do not take it seriously. 

  • Your daughter’s second kidney illness was recovered from merits she has accrued with Dhammakaya community.
  • She had 2 operations because of killing kamma. She slaughtered animals for food and it caused her to have two quick surgeries.

11) You, your wife and your daughter have retributions together. In the past life that your daughter was a young girl of good behaviour who loaned money with extremely high interest rate, you and your wife were her parents who supported her to do that; especially your wife.

  • She provided special support and gave her money to your daughter to loan out as well. That is the reason that your wife had to donate her kidney as it was her past retribution. However, if she rethinks in wholesomeness way, it can be her new merit.
  • If they would like to lessen the retributions, they have to accrue all merits; i.e. generosity offering (dhana), precept observance (sila) and meditation (bhavana) as well as dedicate merits to all lives they used to assault.
  • Your family has stream merits with Dhammakaya community almost in every life but in some past lives, you were careless too. Therefore, you have to make a wish carefully to have stream merits with great masters, Dhammakaya community and return to the fourth level of heaven (Tusita).

  • Since we have met each other in this life, therefore you must try to pursue perfection in all merits with fullest efforts and make a wish to follow the Dhammakaya community to the fourth level of heaven (Tusita), in the special merit zone – bodhisattva as well as do not be apart from each other again


Case study in real life

The Law of Kamma (Pali:Compared to "Karma" in Sanskrit) segment or "Case Study" is one of the prominent sections on the Dream in Dream kindergarten program, conducted by the Venerable Phrarajbhavanavisudh, also known as, Luang Phaw Dhammajayo of the Dhammakaya Temple in Pathum Thani Province, Thailand.

Each individualized "Case Study" is based on the timeless Law of Kamma (the Law of Cause and Effect) which examines the reasons for many situations and complex inter-relationships people find themselves in. Viewers from around the world write personal letters to Luang Phaw wanting to understand the karmic reasons for many special circumstances in their life.

This program is not intended to convert anyone to Buddhism or any other religions persuasion. Rather the goal is to help spread genuine peace, happiness and understanding here in Thailand and around the world. By first discovering and cultivating inner peace within ourselves through meditation, we can help spread love and kindness outward, helping to make our world a better place for everyone.
