Monk Holding Cymbals

Young monk holding cymbals

The young monk had a cymbal

Shot at a Buddhist temple in Luang Prabang, Laos.

A monk exposing his right shoulder was standing while he was leaning against the wall. A cymbal-like musical instruments were seen in his hands. It was usually used in the Buddhist ceremony. He clapped cymbals in rhythm to the drum. Yet he didn't seem happy. What he did could be a part of his ascetic training. Therefore, the sound of his cymbals didn't have an uplifting feeling.

By the way, the reason why he exposed his right shoulder was to show the respect to the Buddha.
