There is alot of misconception about Phra Ngan due to certain merchants teaching evils and wrong methods of worship.One example of this is using the blood in female sanitary pads for worship.
We believe and are taught by our Masters that Phra Ngan used to be a Buddha. Being a Buddha, there are lots of restrictions. Especially when it comes to Karma, nobody can avoid.Phra Ngan is willing to bring down his status to a Deity to help those who really need help regardless of what they did in their previous lives.
Alot of people or merchants taught people praying thru the unorthordox ways to achieved what they want in lives.. Who will reside in a "Stained Shell"? Not to mention Buddha or Deity.
