Abstract


The Thai people in Than Uyen are part of the Northwest Thai people. They also share the same cultural traits, especially the spiritual culture of this land. In the spiritual life of the Thai people in Than Uyen, the spiritual teachers always hold an important position and role. On the one hand, they are "spiritual guides", responsible for taking care of the cultural and spiritual life of the whole community. On the other hand, they are also members with a lot of contributions and closely attached to society. With the study of the difficulties and contributions of Thai spiritual teachers to the community, the article contributes more voices to the preservation of Thai folk knowledge.
