Luang Pu Thuat: Thai Buddhist Monk
Born in 1582, Luang Pu Thuat or หลวงปู่ทวด as he is referred to in Thai language was a revered Buddhist monk who lived in the old country of Siam. He was thought to have magical powers consisting of Buddhist elements and paved a path of pilgrimage for his followers through the southern Thai peninsula. Luang Pu Thuat passed away in 1682 making him 100 years old which was unheard of at the time.
There are many stories that have been passed down from generation to generation about the famous monk, many of which contain legendary tales of magic and even some about the monk himself performing miracles.
Amulets depicting images of Luang Pu Thuat are thought to have great protective powers to many people throughout Southeast Asia and have granted safety to people during times of distress. Some of the older more sacred amulets have even been responsible for saving lives from almost certain fatal automobile accidents. These amulets have great value and would be considered priceless to many.
Until this day, statues of Luang Pu Thuat can be found all over Thailand where Thai locals and tourists alike will go to worship and pay their respects.
Embroiled in scandal Richard Milhous Nixon was probably the most fascinating president of the 20th century. Coming into oﬃce in 1968 and becoming the 37th President, Nixon’s views were quite diﬀerent in comparison to his democratic predecessors. With his presidency eventually cut short by “Watergate”, the most controversial scandal of its time, Nixon’s 6 years in the White House represented a pivotal point in American politics.
From a nuclear arms control agreement with the Soviet Union to creating the Environmental Protection Agency, Nixon does hold some groundbreaking achievements. Despite his best eﬀorts at repairing his reputation, his terms in oﬃce are still met with criticism. Regardless of how you view Nixon, there is no denying that his presidency was a turning point in American politics and the start of a two decade Republican dominated regime.
