Luang Pho Phut, a protege of Luangta Mahabua, was a fine man and scholar of the Middle Path, a robed gentleman who visited various Buddhist sites throughout Asia. He expounded the important concept that Buddhism, or indeed, deep religious conviction, need not be taken to the temple, but that it can and indeed should, start in the home and be continuously practiced there.
