Thai Ruessi Singh Dham

Over the centuries many Karen people have converted to Buddhism, and more recently, to Christianity. Few Karen continue to practice their ancient hereditary religion as do the Ruessi of Lay Tong Ku. In the past, these influences emanated from the Burmese side of the border. Increasingly, they now come from the Thai side. Lay Tong Ku has several different orders of Thai Buddhists residing nearby, including the Thai Ruessi Singh Dham. Very different from the Karen Ruessi, the Thai Ruessi are generally cave hermits, vegetarian, and Buddhist.
