  • While we were in Thailand back in May, we got the opportunity of a lifetime. The most venerable Thai monk, Phra Maha Vudhijaya Vajiramedhi, allowed us to spend a day with him and got TD to become a monk for 24 hours. He and everyone at the Center were beyond kind and welcoming and it'll definitely be an experience we'll never forget.

    Thank you so much to:

            At first I thought what this guy doing. Are they playing a joke or will they just do it for fun? But then when I watch them start to really want to experience. It make me really happy and applaud them to take it serious. love this and the monk who take care of them. His english is so good.

                                                    I know these boys want to see the rituals not the real aim of a Monk
                                                    These are lot more rituals for making a person Monk
                                                    I don't think these many ritual are necessary
                                                    The aim of Monk is only Nirvana and accept Buddha to be everything

Did you go to Bangkok too ? I remember seeing this very young western monk surrounded by some friends and it really caught my attention and it really looked like you ! I was in Bangkok around May 5th to May 10th. Is it possible ???? I know the video location is not Bangkok but I thought that maybe you did some extra shooting there or something
