Bangkok, Thailand

Novice monks are seen all over Bangkok. They serve for only a year or two, maybe even less, and make a decision about remaining monastic at age 20. The robes separate them from society, connect them to Lord Buddha's teachings, and equalize their status. So young to be so serious, but they are all very serious looking. [2011]
