The history of the Phuphalarnsong Temple

The Phuphalarnsong is a temple associated with the Maha Nikaya clergy. The national Buddhism Office announced the establishment of the Phuphalarnsong Temple am1. May 2007. The temple is on the Summit of Phalarnsong mountain built (the word “Phalarnsong” meaning stone plateau), na Chaluai is 4 km east of the district. This temple is promoted na na Chaluai of Ubon Ratchathani province Chaluai district by the inhabitants of the municipality. The monastic community chose as their Abbot Phra Khru Thammathorn (Phrarangsi Chan Park) on June 11, 2007. The ceremonial opening took place on July 23, 2007, with the Princess Prathep as opening Executive Board.

Due to the convenient location of the temple, in a wooded area, meditation teachers often take their students there and teach the spiritual practice regularly, as there is still no temple stood. The monastic community traditionally uses this place for ritual practices for lent (ook Phansa).

The Phuphalarnsong Temple is emerged from the efforts of both parties, the monastic community as well as local residents. The Buddhist teacher, who built the Temple first, is Phra Khru Wibun Thammathada, former Dean of the District of Det Udom. He made the forest buildable land and made the necessary sleeping and living areas, since 1975. During this time, malaria was widespread, which greatly hampered the construction of the temple. This hampered the search after young monks who should spend their Lenten season.

Phra Khru Wibun Thammathada was the former abbot of Ubon Ratchathani province, consciously, this place in the future would be as important, because he was the companion of the teacher Phra Khru Wirot Rattanobon as a novice. As the temple WAT thung SI Mueang was rebuilt in 1901, they found an ancient Scripture in which is written, that in the future the Phuphalarnsong Temple Holy relics were kept in.

Phra Khru Wirot Rattanobon, has applied affiliated Phra Khru Wibun Thammathada his students, to build the Phuphalarnsong temple to fulfill the prophecy, as written in the Holy Scriptures. The monastic community had made every effort to build a statue, which is geared to Cambodia, Laos and Thailand, as is the construction site on the border of the three countries. This was however not according to the principles of the three characteristics of existence (impermanence, incompleteness and not-self) can be realised. The Phuphalarnsong Temple is in addition subject to the law of Unstreitbarkeit. A growing era of degeneration and age, that is to say, in some years, there are enough monks, and in some years there is a shortage of Buddhist monks.

Up to 1999, as the inhabitants together Luang Phor Phrarangsi, from the forest Temple PA asked ban Kambon, to go to the mountain and to take care of the temple, the Phuphalarnsong to the Buddhist tradition continue to wear. Luang Phor Phrarangsi sent up students of his temple there lent to spend and to take care of the dwellings. These were the old dignified Phra Phun Sanutchituto, Phra Ayan wit Pakuno and 2 novices. Phra Khru Suntorn Sarawat (Sunthorn Sunutro), Chairman of the community, was Advisory Board. After the end of lent, could stay the monks and novices there any longer, because of various problems, unless the procurement of food, that food intake, medical care, infrastructure, the route had to go up and down so that they had to leave the Phuphalarnsong Temple, and in an another temple.

Luang Phor Phrarangsi went up in 2000-2002, to promote the development. He had roads built in the two years and build a road leading to the temple. He ordered things in the temple, and adjusted to the environment. He instructed students to supervise this. Temple, Kambon ban Luang Phor Phrarangsi itself, is returned to his PA.

As a result the students could however not stay there, what stimulated Luang Phor Phrarangsi to think about, why nobody could stay there. He went so even there in 2004. Prior to lent, he erected a tent, as a place of residence for lent. From then on, he began to build living – and sleeping places and gradually won after monks there to practice and to find out why the monks and novices there not thought of it. The relics in the temple should come later, as predicted by the ancient scriptures. Luang Phor phoned the monastic community to come and honor the relics. Currently, the believers who have experienced this customer, come to honor the relics.
