Novice monk

Novice monk 

This young novice monk was inside the door of a Buddhist temple. Outside, the entry wall had been painted over many years with layers of murals (see PiP1) while a large drum to summon worshippers was also there (PiP 2).

A beautiful portrait of this young monk, George. I love the juxtaposition with the golden Buddha statues in the background. Very interesting pips too!

tiabunna club has replied to Annalia S. club
Thank you very much, Annalia. He came to the door of the temple where I took more images of him and another young monk, but the golden Buddha made this the one for me as it provided context.

Umm., He's just a teenager, isn't he?
Must have started his monkhood quite early.

tiabunna club has replied to Tacheles club
From what I gathered, they begin at about age 10. There now are government schools, but traditionally the monasteries provided the education services. Our tour guide told us he began in a monastery.

Hi George

A very nice picture, with a fantastic mix of colours, especially the orange...

While he looks cam and collected, I can't help wondering his motivation to be there at that age..

Best Wishes, a nice weekend, and stay safe!!
