- The translation of Ruesi falls somewhere between “Forest Sage”, “Monk” and “Wizard”. A spiritual descendant of the Rishi of India – who are known for writing the Vedas, the first scriptures that formed the foundation of Hinduism, and living lives dedicated to searching for enlightenment. Thai ruesi have practices tied to Hinduism and Animism, although they are considered Powerful Magicians and Healers among Thai Buddhists. Portrayed in ancient statues and paintings, Ruesi were once sought out to heal the sick, protect people against evil, and foretell the future.
- The Reusi with a Bull Head is sometimes believed related to Kwai Wua Thanu Images.
