Mahamuni Buddha Temple
Myanmar (Burma), Mandalay, March 2012

A better view of the beautiful dress of the girls and boys at the occasion of their inauguration as nuns and monks. They told us that hiring this dress is very very expensive.

Beautiful pinks here Peter.....I wonder, is this their choice to be nuns and monks or is it family pressure?

The picture and the costumes are beautiful!
What bothers me is that those children have no choice..............

Barbara and Riet, it is true that the parents stimulate their children to enter the monastery, but the children can leave after a few months when they do not like the monastery life. Our guide told us that he tried three times to be a monk and then gave up and became a tourist guide!

A very interesting photo, and I'm glad to see that these children can go back to a normal life if they decide to!

Sylvia, we got the impression that Buddishm is a very liberal philosophy of life!
Btw, the normal life in Burma is far from easy. The monastery life has its disadvantages of course, but you are cared for!
