The Fortune teller.
Warin Buawiratlert, Thailand’s most influential fortune teller lives in a large and luxurious compound on the outskirts of Chiang Mai. He is a man of real power and influence. ‘Aajaan Warin’ has the ear of the most important figure in Thailand, the head of the Thai junta, General Prayuth Chan-ocha.
“We’ve known each other for more than ten years so I am quite familiar with him – it’s been a long time,” said Mr Warin. “We mostly talk about the country. I feel it is also my duty to protect (the nation).”
Aajaan Warin says he receives visions from an ancient Himalayan holy man called Laung Poo Thao, adding that one of those visions correctly predicted of the coup (that saw General Prayuth remove the Thaksin Shinawatra-aligned government from power).
“As he leads the country there may be issues he gets stuck on so he’ll contact me. He has confidence in me. When someone gets stuck and it’s beyond the knowledge of humans, you have to consult the spirit that knows.”
Aajaan Warin says the army chief was the trusted lieutenant of King Naresuan the Great of the Ayutthaya era in his previous life.
I know now, that’s why the free admission to King Naresuan film.
Before the coup, General Prayuth was seen wearing a ring studded with nine coloured gemstones, which are believed to shore up his luck. After the coup, however, he slipped on to the middle finger of his right hand another ring bearing a garuda, which signifies power and prestige.
Will the Himalayan holy man gives a vision to ‘Aajaan Warin’ that General Prayuth will be the next prime minister. We have to wait for the Himalayan to decide Thailand future.
Anyway, your prediction of Tsunami for Dec, 2010 was false and irresponsible and that hit Phuket tourism industry hard. It seems that time you consulted a spirit that doesn’t know. I hope next time, you consult a spirit that knows. Keep your spirit up.
