Abstract

This research aimed at studying the general condition of culture, beliefs, cultural assimilation processes and cultural adaptation of a Modham in Surin province. The qualitative research methodology employed a documentary research and key informants with a case study from the target group as samples to meet the objectives. The target group was classified as 5 groups: Modham, disciples of a Modham, treated people by a Modham, Informal and informal community leaders and academicians. There were 3 areas of research areas: Ban Lantea and Ban Ta Brahmin of Thep Raksa Sub-district and Ban Phum Pho, Tom Sub-district, Sangkha District, Surin Province. The main research findings showed that the status and role in being a Modham with a major motivator was a morally sick person and found a way to heal oneself. This had led to the belief that these treatments have kept others up to date. The family has been a Modham before, resulting in the interest to study, so it was inherited, hoping to help others. In addition, the family has been a Modham before it was transmitted knowledge and more self-study. They also recorded the knowledge in the textbook and kept it well. The rituals of a Modham often included folk music to be associated with emotional therapy. There is an integration of faith and belief in the doctrine of Buddhism, such as the principle of good deeds, evil, etc. At present, most Modham are senior people who are knowledgeable and passionate about their rituals and wish to pass on the knowledge they need to learn, love and cherish, help them to maintain the science of a Modham to continue for a long time. We concluded that under the current dynamics of globalization, it is necessary to find ways to encourage the community to be aware of the importance and value of the Dhamma and the ritual. Thus, all sectors need to cooperate in preserving the valuable ritual; especially local administration organizations and educational institutions should gather knowledge to be an important source of information for the community.
