Buddhism is the major religion in this country and you can see many monks walking the streets. Like most of the Southeastern countries, the popular Buddhism here was Theravada. So it was common to become a priest in the entire life for the local people.
The young monk in the photo sat by the roadside with his associates. To enter the priesthood functioned as some kind of educational system here. And he might be laicized in the future.
