Monks Were Filing Away

Monks walking in a line

The monks were walking in a line

Shot in the town of Luang Prabang, Laos.

The Buddhist monks wearing a kasaya were filing away while they were holding a big alms bowl. All of them were shoeless. They were just doing the morning alms. And it was another of exercises for them.

They walked without a saying a word and stopped in front of almsgivers to accept charity without saying a word. Although many monks were walking, the street was wrapped with the silence. The ascetic training was done in a quiet manner.
