“In this world hate will never be ended by hatred but by love, this is an eternal truth…..” (Boeddha)
I made this picture in a little village in the neighbourhood of Kratie (Cambodia).
The monks follow a strict lifestyle. They are celibate (unmarried), but have a few necessary possessions and they are depend on the villagers for food, clothing and shelter. The amenities of a monk include: begging bowl, a razor, a needle and a sieve. The begging bowl is a sign of Buddha’s spiritual dominion. The strainer is for getting insects out of his drinking water. Not so much for their own health but to save those animals.
