龙婆本伏虎罗汉
Luang Phor Pern Wat BangPhra
(佛历2466至佛历2545)

龍婆本大師(Luang Phor Pern),是泰國有名的伏虎羅漢。因為龍婆笨本大師在曾經在山中有過持續9年的苦行經歷,並且經常在山上遇到老虎,而師父每次遇到老虎的時候,就會坐下來念經,老虎就會乖乖的過來聽,直到師父念完經後才是離去。而後,龍婆本大師也都給善信們做的刺符、佛牌等聖物,都喜歡用老虎的法相。有些聖物甚至真的含有虎皮,虎牙,大師說老虎能夠辟邪、增權力、招財運。

龍婆本師父生於佛歷2466年,出生在泰國的佛統府,在家中八個兄弟姐妹中排行最小。由於幼年時,全家遷移到至素潘布裡府居住,因此龍婆笨本最早是在泰國素潘布裡府的屈通角佛寺出家,並向龍波錠大師學習佛法,及後在佛歷2491年,龍婆本師父全家又遷回佛統府居住,於是師父就跟隨龍普謙大師學習了古老醫術、符咒、刺符及各種佛法,之後大師便進行離開佛寺,到山林中進行長達9年的苦行,期間花了兩年時間到泰北學習,包括了清邁、南邦、清萊等地區,後來還遇上泰國當時出名的苦行僧龍婆胡怕史大師,兩人有過大概一年時間的共修與交流。

佛歷2500年,在大家的推薦下,龍婆本大師做了泰國西部屈那湯寺廟的住持,為時大概5年多。 直至佛歷2505年,大師才離開屈那湯回到家鄉那曠不通,而且成為屈湯他孔佛寺住持,並在這裡督造了第一期的佛牌,並開始為大家刺青紋符。大師在為大家督造佛牌、為善信紋符及善信香油得來的金錢,都會用來興建佛寺、學校、醫院、築橋、建路,是真正的好師父。

佛歷2516年的時候,由於龍婆本的恩師之一龍泡謙大師圓寂,村民希望為寺廟尋找一位新的主持,於是請求龍婆本師父來擔任住持,由於屈班拍佛寺不僅是師父的寺廟,更是自己家鄉的寺廟,所以在屈湯他孔佛寺找到接替的住持之後,師父接任了屈班拍寺的住持,直到佛歷2545年6月30日的時候在此圓寂,享年79歲。目前師父的金身不壞的靈柩,仍然在寺廟裡供眾善信們參拜。

龍婆本大師擅長刺符,其生前最讓泰國人嘖嘖稱奇的事跡,就跟刺符有關。據說某位讓龍婆刺符的男子,在某些原因身故之後,當法醫要驗屍的解剖時,發現解剖刀竟然無法劃開刺青男子遺體!這在法醫看來是完全找不到任何醫學根據的,因此造成較大的轟動與影響。所以後來大家都認為讓龍婆本刺符的人,可以刀槍不入!


在龍婆本的佛牌裡,老虎像征著興旺,勇氣,信心,無畏和霸氣。這些使得想到龍婆在制作佛牌的時候就放進了小部分的虎牙,再加上特別的經咒。在泰國佛牌的術語中,喬舍(Khiao Ser)一般是指以老虎作為造型的聖物,通常制作喬舍的材料包括有老虎牙,熊的牙齒,像牙,木料甚至是青銅以及其他金屬。而當中最貴重的當然是老虎牙,是珍品,佩戴者在政治場上通行無阻,也可避免成為政治的受害者。
