Little Buddhist Monk On The Other Side Of The Gate

The little Buddhist monk watched me with a smile

Finally, I came to the building of what looked like a Buddhist monastery. Buddhism is widely believed in Myanmar and many local people visit Buddhist temples. To go to the temples to pray is part of people's life here. And the temples are usually open to the public. Yet it is different in the monasteries. This is just a living place for Buddhist monks and is not a place for praying. The gate of this monastery was closed.

Accurately, it was open a little. However, I was too scared to enter because no worshippers were seen on the other side of the gate. The monastery was wrapped by the silence. I stood still in front of the gate. In the meantime, a little monk came out of the building. When he noticed me, he stopped and smiled at me.
