    Questions of faith

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 29/07/2013

    ยป In many ways, religious beliefs and subscriptions of faith in Thailand are enigmatic and inexplicable. This is a "Buddhist" country, and yet many people's beliefs are closely associated with the elements of folklore, from spirits to ghosts and other brands of superstition. Hindu gods, Chinese goddesses, Brahmin rites and pagan shrines are interweaved spiritually _ sometimes commercially _ with sacred amulets and guru monks (how else could the scandalous Luang Pu Nen Kham manage to do what he did?). Lord Buddha's teachings of self-reliance are held high, but there is always room for supplementary faiths to help Thais get through each difficult day.
