View Luangta Maha Boowa on TV wherever you are via your PC

Visitors from overseas may not be aware that there is a special network channel dedicated to Luangta Maha Boowa. The channel is available via Star cable TV in Thailand.


However, even if you are not from Thailand, you can view Luangta Maha Boowa from wherever you all via his official website. I have known this for quite sometime but today, it suddenly occurred to me that many people who have read and heard about Luangta Maha Boowa may not know that they can actually view him from the internet. I sincerely apologise- I should have thought of this earlier.


Here's how:

Go to http://www.luangta.com/. The website is in Thai language:



Click on the TV icon as shown on the picture above.


Run the script and you will be able to view him.

Every morning via the TV, in Thailand time, about 7 to 9am, you will be able to view him live- you can see him taking his morning meal. As for the website, I am not sure if there is any delayed time. Then, the same show in the morning is generally repeated at night about 8 or 9pm if I remember correctly. The rest of the time, there may be life appearance, eg when Luangta decided to give an impromptu talk. Else, it will be a replay of previous events.

The date of the recording is normally shown on the screen- but again, it is in Thai. This , 2009 is 2552 in the Thai calendar. The date is normally not displayed as 1999 but it is in Thai calendar. Therefore if you see a date that indicates the year 2550 for instance, you will know that the show was recorded about 2 years ago. By taking note of the year, at least you will know if it is a recent recording of him. If you want to know the exact date, here's the Thai month:

January มกราคม ---- February กุมภาพันธ์ ----- March มีนาคม ----- April เมษายน ----- May พฤษภาคม ----- June มิถุนายน ----- July กรกฎาคม ---- August สิงหาคม -----September กันยายน ---- October ตุลาคม ---- November พฤศจิกายน -----December ธันวาคม -----
eg, 25 ธันวาคม 2550 means 25 December 2007.

There is also a dedicated radio channel, FM103.25. You can listen too by clicking on the FM icon on the website. Please note that the English website is not updated, as such, you need to access to the newest updates via luangta.com.
