Good morning lovely people :)

We are back at Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.

Here is the monk chanting and making a rhythm of prayer.

Modern technology really helps here as we can see that he is using a microphone to amplify his voice.

Check out the ornaments behind the monk. Every one of them are made in the finest details. A truly astounding craftsmanship!

There are two monks in duty of chanting the prayer on the left and right of the altar

In Buddhism, bhikkhu is the term for monk.
The local people give food for the monks to eat, though the monks are not permitted to positively ask for anything. The monks live in monasteries, and have an important function in traditional Asian society.
