Mo He Saikosin (formerly Chongkolni) was a local pharmacist who was respected by the villagers of Wat Tha Phut community in Rai Khing Subdistrict, Sam Phran District, Nakhon Pathom Province. Mo He (means doctor He) was also the conductor of several rituals. If there was a religious ceremony, a wedding ceremony, or a ceremony for encouragement in any household, Mo He would help conducting it, as well. Mo-He learned about Thai traditional medicine when he was a monk in Wat Tha Phut. When he left the Buddhist monkhood, he used his knowledge to help people.
Nowadays, Mo He Saikosin has already passed away. It is his daughter, Aunt Snaeh, who still takes care of the manuscripts that belonged to Mo He Saikosin. So, the Museum Connection invited the Survey, Accumulating and Researching of the local literatures in Western Thailand Project, accompany with The Inscriptions in Thailand Database Project to collect and record manuscripts, make digital copies, as well as the wrapping clothes.
There are in total 39 manuscripts from Ban Mo He Saikosin (Mo He Saikosin’s House) in the database, which are:
