Hello JC,

Don't know much about them except they figure prominently in the amulet beliefs:

Not sure if you'll be able to view this photo which includes them both - as you are required to be a member.

I can't find anything about his practice but these pages are interesting:

http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... o/toh.html

I knew he was supposed to King Monkut's preceptor, hadn't realised he was supposed to be the monk who sorted things out in the Nang Nak story...

I must pull out the movie again...
