There was once he nearly burned down the whole of Wat Bovornives. The villagers were unhappy with him. They were unsure as to why he was behaving like this and they soon concluded that he was insane.

There was one day, an large group of merchants, stopped by at Wat Pahk Klorng MaKhamTow to rest. During those days, merchants used elephants as a mean of transport as well as to carry their goods. While the merchants wanted to cook their meals at the temple, but realised that they did not bring along enough meat. Some of the villagers, jokingly asked them why don't they use their rifles to shoot at the pigeons at the temple, so that they could have pigeon meat for their dinner. One of the merchants took the joke seriously, and started to fire his rifle at the pigeon, but the rifle failed to fire. The villagers stopped him, and told him that Luang Poo Suk prohibit anyone to kill living things in the temple. That merchant refused to listen and seeing that the rifle failed to fire, he raised his cross-bow and fire the arrow at the pigeon. The arrow flied off, but dropped at a short distance, without hitting the pigeon. This merchant became very angry and started to shout: "The abbot of this temple has what great power?" Luang Poo Suk as if he could hear the merchant from his KuTi(hut) far away, he came out from his kuti with hands carrying an empty coconut husk. Luang Poo Suk went to the gazing field.

The next morning, when the merchants were to set off their journey, they could not find their elephants. They quckly went to Luang Poo Suk and told him that their elephants have been stolen. Luang Poo Suk preached them precept of not killing of living beings: "If you kill a living being, the living being will feel pain. This is similar to the pain of losing your elephants." Luang Poo Suk taught them the Dhamma and asked them to practise good deeds instead of bad deeds. The merchant then realised that it was Luang Poo Suk who was behind the strange happenings the previous day. Luang Poo Suk led them out from his Kuti and went to the gazing field. Luang Poo Suk chanted a kathah and removed the coconut husk and the houseflies turned into elephant one more time. This ability to change objects into different sizes and shapes was one of Luang Poo Suk Wichah.
