18 Breathtaking Images Of Life As A Temple Novice

Themed Collections

04 September 2017

Posted by LisaP

In a modern and ever increasingly accessible world, more and more of us are jumping at the chance to grab backpacks, weigh suitcases, panic over last-minute essentials and head to far-flung destinations in a bid for a break from the norm. Southeast Asia draws students, seasoned travellers and eager tourists alike, all keen to experience cultures markedly different to their own, and with a combination of religious beliefs and practices widely unknown to many Westerners, Buddhist temples remain a huge attraction for the visiting crowds. While visitors scramble to catch a glimpse of the familiar red and yellow robes, many temples remain active places of worship, with monks and novices all performing their daily duties under the scrutiny of thousands of watchful eyes. As UK schools kickstart the new term, we’ve compiled 18 images to offer insight into life as a young Buddhist monk.
