Biography of LP Kasem:
LP Kasem Kamago was born on 28 November 1912. LP Kasem was the descendant of Lampang's King from the Lanna Period. In 1923, LP Kasem was ordained as a monk (Buat Nah Fai) for a short period, as a way of merit making for the dead his uncle, the abbot of Wat BunYeun. In 1925, LP Kasem was novice at the age of 15 at Wat Bun Yeun for studying Dharma until the age of 21 when he was finally ordained as a monk. LP studied Pali language at Wat SeTuWan, Wat Seelom and Wat Bunyawaht. He passed his Pali examination with good results. After he entered monkhood, Luang Por Kasem went to Chiangrai temple, Lampang province to further his Pali studies. He met Krubah Gaen, a very famous monk in North Thailand who was a Tudong monk (forest monk), very good in Sammahdti. LP Kasem became a disciple of Krubah Gaen and went Tudong with his teacher in forests and cementries. When the abbot of Wat Bunyeun passed away, Pra Dtomkum became the new abbot. After some time, Pra Dtomkum left the temple and the post of abbot at Wat Bunyeun because of boredom.
The villagers invited LP Kasem to be the new abbot of Wat Bunyeun. LP Kasem continues his learning in Dhamma and Sammahdti practice even when he was the abbot. The more he trained, the more realized that life is uncertain. His duties as the abbot, kept him rather busy and finally in 1949, he left Wat Bunyeun, and went to stay at Sasahn Sahlahwangthan (a cemetery at another place in Lampang).
LP Kasem was determined to practice the highest Sammahdti at the cemetery. He would sit in front of the burial place and watch the burning of corpse. Whether in hot sun or raining, LP would just sit quietly and watched the corpse being burned to ashes. LP ever sat in Sammahdti for as long as 3 months, without shelter under hot sun or heavy rain. Even his robes were wet by the rain or during cold season, when the cold wind blows, LP would just sit quietly and not complain and asked for anything. LP had let go of everything and steadfast in his practice of Dhamma and Sammahdti. LP was known to go without food for 49 days. Since 1971, LP Kasem only bathed once a year, but there is no stench or foul Odour from his body, even his sweat was pouring under the hot sun. More surprisingly, without pillow and mosquito net, LP never suffered a bite from mosquito at the cemetery. LP Kasem carried nothing with him. His only possession was an alms bowl, his robe, which he was wearing, and a piece of human bone for him to practice Sammahdti.
LP Kasem passed away on 15 January B.E.2539 (C.E.1996) at the hospital in Lampang province at the age of 85 years.
