Inspiring Wisdom Stories – Lessons for Life

By Luphil

The last weeks two friends sent me links to videos of Sean Buranahiran, a young and very successful Thai internet star who is talking about doing something good and living an ethical life. More than 2 million people by now have subscribed to his Facebook page and he publishes one wisdom video per week on his YouTube channel, with over 120.000 subscribers.

The videos are done with simple means – it seems either by himself with a mobile or with the help of friends. He teaches moral principles with catchy stories and in a language which people can easily understand. And he has a magic way of speaking which inspires and touches the listeners.

He is giving public talks, too, although I heard him say on a video that he doesn’t want to travel much any more since he gets headache – he had been a kick-boxer and got whams on his head… Above all, he speaks in a “down to earth” and humble way about things like having respect of others and oneself or about finding inner peace.

On his website, you find classes/lessons in which he shares his thoughts, techniques and personal experiences. He calls it IVM (meaning 4 – the Latin IV – and M, meaning mastering). The four M are:

1. Mastery: How to a master a skill. The higher you go the more humble you must become.
2. Mission: How to set life’s purpose and make a living from it.
3. Mindfulness: Make peace inside and out, then you will hear what is in your heart.
4. Manners: Having good manners will take you where money can’t.

He gives people the feeling they can do something for themselves and others – really a work of good will!

Btw., he speaks a lot about a practical philosophy of life but on the web and in his social media channels I found nothing about him as a person. Although he seems to be active in Thailand, he gives as his address L.A. (Los Angeles) – what does it matter for universal wisdom?
