An endless row of monks on their way to the Mahagandhayon Monastery
Myanmar (Burma), Amarapura, March 2012

The Mahagandhayon monastery is one of the largest teaching monasteries in Myanmar. During Buddhist Lent, as many as 1200 monks converge on this monastery, contributing to the religious atmosphere of Amarapura: http://www.asiaexplorers.com/myanmar/mahagandhayon_monastery.htm

Splendid photo...some are so very young and I would assume that the color of the
robes desingate a place in the monastery such as the young student.
Well taken and well presented. love the deep rich colors of the older months with beautifuly colored towels.

Lie, in Burma you can quit any moment as a monk and also reenter the monastery as often as you want. Our guide told us that he tried several times to live as a monk, but finaaly decided to be a tourist guide. In Burma it is considered as part of your education to live for at least some time as a monk.

Thank you G√ľnther. I did consider to post them separately, but as they show a similar aspect of the ceremony, I thought it better to combine them in one entry.

I, too, was thinking along the lines of Lie....and then I read the explanation you gave, so I feel better about it now!
