A Buddhist monk from Thailand became famous thanks to a TikTok video. His videos went viral because people think he is 163 years old. These rumors are not true, people find out that he is 109 years old. It is still unbelievable and so strange.
Luang Ta wears a traditional orange monk robe, and he looks so fragile. He became famous thanks to the video that his granddaughter Auyary KH posted.
This poor man broke his hip bone, and it was then that his granddaughter made and posted the video. Thankfully, he is fine, and he is recuperating his strength.
He has started to eat, drink and exercise again.
He has a lot of followers now, 600k, but he is still receiving unlikely comments on social media because of his age. People offend him, but his granddaughter responds to all of them.
Auyary posted a video of his grandfather putting his hand on a girl’s hair. This video has had 74k views and a lot of comments. For the most part, so disrespectful.
She requires respect for her grandfather. She said he is a human being, and he deserves respect and love. Furthermore, she asked the people if they don’t like these videos, just to scroll and don’t watch them.
Some people think that he has gone through self-mummification, a process called Shoukushibutsu, a traditional process between Buddhist monks in Japan. The monks dehydrate their bodies and do a no-fat diet before being buried. In this situation, they meditate until their last day of life.
There is also Juan Vicente Perez Mora, from Venezuela, considered as the oldest person alive, and also Jeanne Louise Calment from France. He was born in 1875 and died in 1997.
