A shaven-headed man was standing while he was holding a birdcage at the entrance of a Buddhist temple. Many small birds were in it. He released the birds by the needs of the customers. In other words, his job was to free the birds.

It is believed that to release birds from the cage accumulate virtues in Buddhism. And this man receives money to release birds. It meant that the virtue was purchasable here.
