His reputation and popularity began to rise. News spread and farmers from neighborhoods also came to ask for the merciful and special talismans.
From then on, Wat Kao BanDai-It styed flourished. Worshippers and devotees came pouring in with offerings. Such were his deeds and benefits to the ordinary people that earned him the reputation which traveled far and wide.
