Luang Phor Yit, formerly known as Mr. Yit Sidokbuab was born on the 10th June BE 2467 in Ban Don Hua Grad Village, Petchburi Province
Aged 9 he was ordained a novice at Wat Naprom by Luang Por Huan Jantasiri, his uncle, who also taught him many Buddhist sciences such as ancient medicines, sacred spells and the Khmer language.
Aged 14 years he continued his studies with Luang Phor Thongsuk Intachoto, then abbot of Wat Tanodluang.
At the age of 20 he was ordained a Buddhist monk at Wat Naprom. Luang Phor In of Wat Yang, Luang Por Huan of Wat Praditnaram and Pra Ajahn Puang Of Wat Summarong, acted as Phra Upacha, Phra Karmavachacharn and Phra Anusavanacharn respectively.
He was given his formal name “Juntasuwanno” by Luang Phor Thongsuk, who also shortly after led him to the surrounding forests to practice meditation.
Unexpectedly, his father passed away which resulted in his departure from monastic life and his return home to help his mother. It wasn’t until BE 2517 that he again returned to the priesthood and was ordained for a second time at Wat Kohlak, Muang District, Prachuap kirikhan Province.
