Cambodia Trip - Part 7 - Monk Celebrations
When we were in Cambodia they were celebrating a 15 day feast where all the people prayed for the souls of their deceased ancestors. During the feast they also bring food for the 15 days to the monks who feast on the food. The celebration is a big event throughout the nation. On the island where we visited we saw this young monk. We asked him his age and he stated he was 14 and he had been in the monastery for 4 months. He was unsure if life as monk was for him!
