Monk In A Temple

A monk wearing a Kasaya stood at the door

Shot at a Buddhist temple in Cholon, a Chinatown in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

A Buddhist monk wearing glasses and a Kasaya was standing at the door and watching outside. He seemed to be looking into the distance and made me wonder what he looked.

Although Vietnam is a socialistic state, the government guarantees the freedom of religion. There were also other religious groups include Caodaism. Karl Marx said 'Religion is the opium of the people.' Unlike religion, the opium is prohibited here.
