Three wise monks

A trio of young monks.
Such little boys. How strange it must be to make those kinds of decisions so young

Aw, they look so young to be dedicating their lives to the monastery . I realize it is an honour for the parents, but do the children feel the same I wonder.

@jgpittenger @bintal @onewing @pamknowler @dibzgreasley @365karly1 @hermann I gather that the monk/nun thing is different in these countries compared with the West. It seems that one can leave, return to 'normal' life, then re-enter as often as one pleases. In other words, it's not necessarily a commitment for life. Added to which many, if not most of the youngsters come from families which are struggling to feed and school them, both of which the monasteries provide plus accommodation.
