How to call Buddhist Monk using the correct title



Often it can be a little confuse when you hear people saying a word or a title in front of Buddhist monks name. At the same time it can also make you feel a little timid to speak with them as you don’t want to disrespect who you are speaking with. Today I will teach you a few words that you can use, when you meet or having a conversation with any known or unknown Buddhist monks.

These are the common general term use or title that you can use with any Buddhist monks whether if you know them by name or not: You must try use your judgements correctly:

Luang phi — “Venerable Elder,” a reverential term for a younger, freshly ordained monk

Arjarn (AJ)- Teacher. It is the term that can use with any age monks or anyone you respect or look up to. (You can almost use “Arjarn” with any Buddhist monks if you are unsure of this age, ranking or it’s your first time to meet him)

Luang ta (LT) — “Venerable Uncle,” a reverential term for an elderly monk without titles

Luang pho (LP) — “Venerable Father,” a reverential term for an elderly monk

Luang Pu (LP) - Venerable grandfather. It is the term use in Thai with very Senior monks.

Chao khun — a monk who holds phra racha khana rank (Highest Ranked in Thai Buddhist system).

There are many other titles that you will hear. This is because Thailand has mixture of different cultures and backgrounds. My best advise is, if you don’t want to get it wrong is to ask the monk himself how they would like to be called. Most monks are very friendly . 😊😊😊

Hope you enjoy this!
